I did just notice, on Zman games's exp 5 page, the picture presenting the abbey placement is depicting a wrong tile placement !

https://www.zmangames.com/en/products/carcassonne-expansion-5-abbey-mayor/

See the top left tile ? With a field adjacent to... A city ! Really ?  ;D ;D ;D



I wanted to share just for fun  :yellow-meeple:

It’s a shame that those who edit the rules with images etc don’t even know the game how it works ...

Great find, but it's even worse than that. Why would you play such a valuable tile in that location!  And not even place a meeple on it!

Huh, iteresting. Does every copy of that expansion have this mistake? (I would imagine so)

It's only the website's picture. But the rulebook (even ZMG's) doesn't have this problematic picture  :yellow-meeple:

My version has the mishap on the box, but the directions are correct.

Even funnier when the section title reads "Breaking new ground".They really are breaking it.

Devir has the same problem on the box, but the rules are fine too...

If you want so have fun, just check the example in 2. Placing a meeple as a farmer in The Farmers... Do you see anything wrong in this image?

Actually, now that I read it there are several more bizzare things in that paragraph.
Quote
Also, since the Mayor’s strength is equal to the number of coats of arms in their city, this increased strength also nets them the extra points those same coats of arms provide.
That is not true. The fact that the Mayor's strenght depends on the pennant count, doesn't give you any extra points. This is both false correlation and false causality.

Quote
You can also use wagons to swoop in and take over features before your opponents can get to them. While first placed like a normal follower, you can move a wagon immediately to an adjacent, uninhabited feature once the original placement is scored.
Also not really correct - the first one who had access to said tile is whoever placed it, which might have been an opponent. The first sentence would imply you can swoop in during your opponents Move wood phase.

Poor wording throughout.

I can confirm this graphic appears on the HiG edition distributed by Schmidt Speil.
