That's a Danisthirty meeple and a Dorothy meeple (not in Kansas anymore)...

This is not unique to MindOK. P&D is full of "discrepancies" due to the translations by RGG and ZMG in C1... So ut is no surprise to me that other publishers take a creative approach when they misunderstand the original rules...  ???

Even the C2 P&D rules by HiG are rather misleading at certain points such us the sequence of actions and the dos and don'ts with the volcano and the dragon tiles... :o

It seems they get creative from time to time. Check Exp. 5 to see if they added the extra round to place Abbeys at the end of the game. HiG included this in BB2/3 but removed it in C2. They confirmed this decision on Discord.

I revisited the Exp. 3 rules in German.

Check the following excerpts:

1) Placing or moving of the fairy:

German:
Quote
Die Fee bewegen
Immer, wenn du in deinem Zug keinen Meeple einsetzt (oder bewegst), darfst du die Fee zu einem eigenen Meeple setzen. Dabei musst du die Fee dem Meeple direkt zuordnen, indem du sie dicht neben deinen Meeple stellst.

English translation:
Quote
Moving the fairy
Whenever you don't place (or move) a meeple in your turn, you may place the fairy with one of your own meeples. You must assign the fairy directly to the meeple by placing it close to your meeple.

2) The fairy and volcanos (as mentioned in the rules for the volcano):

German:
Quote
Der Vulkan (6 Plättchen): Sobald du ein Plättchen mit einem Vulkan ziehst, legst du es wie gewohnt an, darfst aber keinen Meeple darauf setzen. Du darfst allerdings die Fee versetzen.

English translation:
Quote
The Volcano (6 tiles): As soon as you draw a tile with a volcano, you place it as usual, but you may not place a meeple on it. You may, however, move the fairy.

3) Meeples and the fairy (as seen on the interactions on the last page)

German:
Quote
Sonstige: | Versetzt der Spieler die Fee, so darf er keine Figur wie Abt (Grundspiel), Baumeister und Schwein (2. Erw.), Bürgermeister, Gutshof und Wagen (5. Erw.) oder Schäfer (9. Erw.) einsetzen.

English translation:
Quote
Other: | If the player moves the fairy, he may not place a figure such as Abbot (base game), Builder and Pig (Exp. 2), Mayor, Barn and Wagon (Exp. 5) or Shepherd (Exp. 9).

Therefore these additions and additional limitations in the Czech rules are not present in the German rules:
* There is no limitation about what meeples the fairy can be assigned to
* Players are just not allowed to place a meeple (or the shepherd) if you place or move the fairy.
* You can move the fairy when placing a volcano tile

Does this clarify your question?

No clue!

If the actions involved are not tied to specific tiles, this could be an option...

Too many questions.  ;)

Have we had confirmation that Cundco aren’t going to stock this?

Last week HiG told me on Discord they don't have plans to sell the Taiwan maps on Cundco for the time being.

Hello
so far we  do not plan to release it on Cundco.
If it changes, we will let you know.

I also asked Smiling Monster, the Swan Panasia distributor in Europe, based in Germany. The answer was as follows:
Quote
Hi,

i´m sorry, we won´t be able to get it (at least not shortly as Swan Panasia is not coming to the Essen game show this year).

You could try to get from Swan directly:
https://boardgamer.org/

The website is in Chinese but if you click on "international" you´ll get to their overseas service.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Helge / Smiling Monster Tames Team

So they redirected me to the current open channel we have with Swan Panasia.

Anyway, can they include some sleeves into tube? Or this will be another question when they approve this order?

Maybe it would be easier if sleeved are ordered through Smiling Monster (they are expected to be back in stock around Sept 21st):
https://www.smiling-monster.com/Card-Sleeves/Standard-Card-Sleeves/Swan-card-protection-sleeves-47mm-x-47mm-160-pcs-thin::69.html

How many sleeve packs would you like to order?

Extra stuff for Willem besides 1 Taiwan map:

Maybe it would make more sense to send the European lot to Slovakia if it is the largest sub-order. Any thoughts?

It seems odd to me too.

If your tile us face up, it is a warning for everyone to make things difficult for you. But you will not waste much time blocking the placement of your opponents' castles. Too much work I think.

I use your tile holders to keep the castles secret  ;)

Yep, that was my interpretation of the rules after Halflings, but the C2 German rules make it clear: the German castle tiles are meant to be placed face up, that is, visible.

You can take peek at your Halflings as required... But the other players shouldn't be able to see them again after the setup...  ;)

I've been reviewing the setup rules for German castles and Halfings just to be certain about this point and I came across this surprising conclusion (at least to me):

German castles remain face up in front of the players while Halflings -even if distributed face up- remain face down for the reast of the game.

Regarding the German castle rules, the C2 German rules mention this point explicitly ("Then everyone places their castles face up in front of them"), although the C1 rules and the English rules (C1 and C2) only state that players place the castles in front of them. In hindsight, this means that the tiles remain face up because there is no explicit wording to keep them face down. OK. ???
