Are they admiting the Japanese Buildings in the vicinity of the city? ;)

Update done! ;D

On this page:

The first diagram is labelled "1st score, 2nd score, 3rd score". For consistency with the main text it should be labelled, "1st edition, 2nd edition, 3rd edition".

Well, when usually C2 is marked as 2nd edition and C3 as 3rd edition of Carcassonne, then it will be better to name as 1st version rules, 2nd version rules and 3rd version rules.

It better than confusing 1st edition rules of 1st edition of Carcassonne, 2nd edition rules of 1st edition of Carcassonne, etc.

This have no impact to Editions (C1/C2/C3), but to rules adaptation in specific Cx edition.
I'm not really following ... If there is a better wording than the one I suggested, I am completely happy to be corrected and see that implemented. The current wording definitely does need changing though, so that the main body of the text and the diagram labels are consistent.

This might cause some confusion, as the three "editions" refer to different rules releases of the First Edition game release (artwork by Doris). It needs changing, yes, but maybe other terminology used throughout? "Release" or "Version"? It may have been based on the original CAR.

I updated the page trying to explain this nuances. Let me know if I succedded, or some additional clarifications would be needed. I tried to keep the CAR convention.

As far as I know, no transcripts have ever been recorded from tournament games. That could be a great initiative... starting from streamed games or games played on BGA. ;)

Not sure if this has happened before but I just noticed that for the English version of some rules, Cundco refers to the WICA pages! Apparently they've been adding the Rules online for some of the older (C1) mini-expansions. The German versions of the rules are there, but for the English rules of Windroses, Besiegers, and (Little) Houses, you end up on the relevant WICA page. So, to everyone who has worked and is still working on WICA: your work is definitely appreciated! :yellow-meeple:

Rules old mini expansions on Cundco

This is the first time that happens. I think that they are just trying to tidy up the Cundco website and remove those expansions that were only listed so the rules could be found somewhere. Unfortunately, they don't have the rules in English for some of them so they resorted to a link to WICA for those cases.

I'ts a pity that they didn't include the Advanced Variant rules for The Labyrinth that was once on there website.

Let's see what they do next.

This is great news! I am also intrigued due to those 4 C1 expansions being featured! Maybe HiG plans to convert to C3 some of them, The Besiegers at least? The rules for some of them are even featured with the C3 logo!

Who knows! The School is not likely to be converted, since they seem to have copies in stock. Anything can happen with the others. There are no written rules about what they will be up to. I'm always looking forward to nice surprises in this regard. ^-^

Whenever possible, I would prefer a wording indicating that any given expansion adds +1 point per well. Expansions normally do that to the number of points a coat of arms or a tile is worth. In the basic case, going from 1 point to 2 points can be seen as doubling the value when it it just adding +1 point.

Official Rules / Re: Fruit-Bearing Trees

Hi @Xscone !

Welcome to the forum.

Selling fruit does not require that an adjacent tree must have some fruit tokens left on it. You only need fruit tokens on a tree to harvest them.

Hope this helps.

PS: I'm moving this thrad to the Official Rules board.

I just purged the Main Page again. Please let me know if this helped with the issue.

We purged the main page cache that was giving problems to some people, but nobody reported any issues since.

I use FireFox on my Mac to do all the editing. What issues are you experiencing? Blank page? Error message?
