artist tile and farms
« on: April 11, 2024, 05:04:19 AM »
Hi all,

While attempting to steal a farm during a 3 players game, this situation happened and we couldn't find the proper answer: how many farms are on this tile (the one with the big meeple as a farmer on it)? One, or 2 (shown by the red arrows)?

-My opinion: it's only 1 field, since we can clearly see a tight green border on the tile. As a visual game, with the exception of the bets, this should indicate this tile has only 1 farm. As a result, a curved road connecting the road and the bridge would allow me to join the bottom farm.

-"Neutral" player opinion (not in any farms at the moment, but placed the bridge tile to try to prevent me to score too much point by joining the bottom farm): was firstly convicted the artist area separate farms on the tile, but after further examination, admited the green border should mean there is only one farm on this tile.

-"Stolen" player (has 1 meeple in the bottom farm I'm trying to reach with this big meeple): convinced the artist area creates 2 farms on this tile. Mildly admitted it could be a single farm due to the green border of the tile, but really unsure about that.

We ended up admitting this tile has only 1 farm, so reaching the bottom farm would be easy for me. Indeed, we couldn't find a clear answer on WICA and decided the visual aspect should prevail.

Next tile placed by the "stolen" player was a tower, used to capture my big meeple, and solving the situation for everyone. At least, our question about it didn't really impacted the game!  :)

Can anyone clarify if, in this case, the artist area separates the farms or not? I promised my friends an answer next time we meet to play and have a game together!

I always assumed that this tile has only 1 field. But I do not know about any official clarifications in this regard.
