Why can't you capture pigs and builders with a tower?
« on: January 06, 2023, 07:04:48 AM »
I fail to understand the logic behind what you can and cannot capture by placing a tower floor. For example
  • Abbots, Mayors, Wagons... yes
  • Pigs, Builders: No
Why? Is it because they're not "meeples"?

That's it, you can only capture meeples  :yellow-meeple:

...and you can find the definition of what is considered as "meeple" in the WICA  :)

…or you can just add “pigs and builders can be captured by a tower” to your very nice house rules, hopefully using an expression as amusing as “farmers don’t fish”!   ;D

Actually I’m giving a belated +1 merit for that!
