Ping!
« on: May 01, 2022, 08:39:26 AM »
Does it count as psychological abuse if, every time I score a point from the fairy at the start of a turn, I irritatingly exclaim, "Ping!"?
It makes my son wince every time I do it, if only because it reminds him he forgot to take control of the fairy on his previous turn, but I guess that's just one of the unspoken benefits of parenthood.

In regular game I forgot every time. When plaing Online, at least move fairy because it's in options what to do.
But also forget, when wanted to by quick.

It would be even better if you played a sparkling fairy dust sound effect every time you score the fairy point!  :white-meeple: ;D

You need to play with Black Fairy - you will see how every body will shout on beginning on your turn: "Hey -1 points to you!"

Of course, it's not official.

You can find it listed on the Fan Expansions page on WICA ...

https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Expansion_List_-_Test

Display all the Expansions, then use your Browser Search bar to look for "Black Fairy"

You'll find a link to the expansion on CarcF. The expansion summary, which will be added to a future release of the Expansion List states "If the Black Fairy is placed next to a follower at the beginning of the player's turn, the player loses one point."
AutumnForest (C2), Catch Of The Day (C1/2/WD), Cliffs&W'falls (C1/2), Coast (C1/2), FishHuts (C2), Fluvium (C2), NewForest (C2), Harvest (C1/2), Stone Circles (C1/2), Wells (C2), Jordan River 2 (AotC), River I/II (GR)
Devt: Sakura (C2), WinterEdge (C1), WinterCoast (WD/WE) and others

The white fairy lightly but penetratingly says, "Ping!"; I think the black fairy would have to shout with a manic and gravelly voice, "PING!"

The ping is evil, pure evil. I need to remember to get the fairy of you.
