Unofficial Rules / Re: Rules for kids

A little different from kid to kid I guess. One of my sons picked up Carc early (5ish) and at 8 he plays with full rules and defeat me from time to time. When he was 6 he played with one meeple more, not so much anymore.

My other son, 5, doesn´t get the farmer concept while playing yet so we avoid them, he also gets a meeple or two extra.

So in a manly family feud I have 6 meeples, the 8-year old 7, and the smallest gets 8. But then I also play friendlier towards the little guy whereas the older one gets angry with me if I don´t play aggressively towards him.

The second game became all about the gigantic city claiming 4 meeples each and growing. Rich was out of meeples when the CCCC-tile was drawn by me and the only playable option was to complete the city thus sharing the city and releasing meeples. Then it becae a farming game, but in the end the decisive point difference came from roads, strange.

What If :black1-meeple:-RichtheFish :red-meeple: 125-108
Roads 25-3
Cities 72-73
Cloisters 7-8
Farms 21-21

So, last day and I haven´t played my two last games against ARabidMeerkat and Jma03.

Jma03 haven´t gotten back to me and I´ve had problems finding a time suiting me and ARabidMeerkat. This was not my intention but probably my fault and I beg my pardon to you all for not finishing in time. Not that it matters much for me in regards to placement but a tournament should always play out. Happy competition to those better than me.

Merit for writing up what I have been wondering about since buying bb5 for this reason and being quite disappointed. It is of some annoyance that I am still looking for a WoF expansion to be able to play as you describe it in, original WoF without any hassle. The fact that a base carc also features ugly numbers that are not part of what I am playing is also annoying.

847, getting to my goal of 900. Need above 500 for farms, I think.

First entry 758, still a lot to be had I believe!

As stupid as I may sound, if I don´t have any social media, and tinypic keeps erasing my pictures, where should I upload images? Second attempt will get better anyway...

I am in chat now and some hours on, checking in every half hour.

I've done it once. I don't remember which expansions I used but it was a bunch of them. At least I&C, T&B, A&M, and one other large one.

Honestly, I didn't like it. There weren't enough vanilla tiles so virtually everything coming out had a special feature on it. It got pretty messy at times and there were moments when I definitely wished for some of those annoying RRFF tiles or even just a RFRF tile. The expansions often focus on specific feature arrangements not found in the base game, but if you take out the base game, all you have left are strange tile arrangements. I'd certainly not stop you from trying it (like I can anyway!) but I doubt it will prove a satisfactory experience.

I agree with you on everything. Especially the road tiles are missing. Since many of us have, I guess, at least one extra base game, I have sorted out 24 road tiles from the base game to use for exactly these sort of games, or 12 if smaller game. many expansions are city-heavy and these road tiles make the difference.

Hello all!
I have been away due to serious tragedies in my family, now I am available anytime anyday, please let me know! Sorry for the inconvenciences.

Hello Wizards!

I am sorry to say that my family has been struck by tragedy and I am not in a gamy mood. I tried to play Leven in the base game but couldn´t focus. I hope I will be back (sort of) in a week or two. If the round is finished before then I have to forfeit, so sorry about that.

I hoped that a good game of carc would help me focus on other things, alas it did not. Enjoy your games / WI
