Official Rules / Re: CAR for Carcassonne v2
« on: October 30, 2016, 04:40:26 PM »
i guess it would be nice to have a final CAR for 1st edition.  I do think however that 1st and 2nd edition are the same game and I mix and match tiles from both editions and there are certain to be new expansions which raise questions about their interactions with v1 expansions.
I personally would much rather have a PDF CAR than a wiki.
It's nice to have a single document that I can take with me on holiday and not have to worry about needing an Internet connection to check the rules

I came really close to buying the new versions of the expansions while I was in Transylvania last week. I was on my way to the till when I noticed that the picture on the back of the box showed the tiles had rounded corners. A shame really as they worked out pretty cheap

I think the only sane way to play is that a barn needs to be on a single farm

Hi Decar, thanks for the diagrams. In the example with the flyers going over the half tiles, what would happen if the flyer tile was above the one in your example and the angle of flight was diagonally down to the right? If you roll a 1, which half tile would you land on?

I think in the case of a void you would have to count it as one space per missing regular tile rather than play Schrodingers Tile and philosophise as to the whether there may be a castle or halflings there! ???  8) ::)

If a flyer moves diagonally down the diagonal split of two adjoining halfling tiles does it count it as two tiles (if so where would it land if it only moved one space) one tile or no tiles (it sneaks down the split!)

I would buy it but there is always the chance it could be The Gingerbread Man. I play loads of games so it'll most likely have some stuff for me.

Maybe Santa Claus tokens to fire at your cities with the catapult to deliver presents to your meeples would be fun!

I had a great time and managed to play in games against all of the chaps from the forum. Looking forward to next year. Loved getting a Dan meeple!

Hi Dan,

I'll be arriving on Thursday, I've booked up for way too many RPG's but I'll be there for the seminar. Looking forward to it and meeting everyone

What happens when a flyer moves diagonally  over one of big castle double tiles? Does he move sideways on the big tile then move off diagonally or does he follow a realistic straight line over the castle? On a similar note, does the castle only count as one tile when counting the kidnap range for a tower?

I've been playing it wrong for years!!

Hi Dan,

I was at the Expo 3 years ago last time (I think). The tourney was fun but really odd as the highest scoring players went through to the second round regardless of whether they won so you had the odd arrangement of players conspiring to share huge cities so they could all gain lots of points. Madness!
Do you look like your Meeple?

My real name is Geoff Thirlwell in case anyone wants to say hi

Really looking forward to this event. I'm playing games until late the night before so I should be hangover free for the tournament. Will the lucky winner be the only one to receive the contents of the package or is he going to surprise all of us with it?

They originally gave a date in March but the miniatures games went on sale about a week ago and the boardgames today. They sent out emails to let people know the earlier dates.
