Fields separation in The Bets
« on: June 22, 2023, 11:45:42 AM »
Context:
Do I have correctly identified the separate fields in any of these images?

The first image shows the correct separations. It is like an invisible barrrier between the betting office and the closest city wall on the tile, if any.

Yes. By clarification made on former HiG discord channel, bet office divide fields doesn't matter how far it is from city

But I think this clarification was made on badly reading and understanding of rules.

I double checked with Andreas and he admitted the illustrations were not faithful to their initial idea about field separations.

Even if you see a gap between the betting office and the nearest city, you should consider the field separated. That is, don't believe your eyes...  :o

Not by name, but we could think so...

Maybe nobody thought of field connectivity/separation during playtesting. Marcel may have not received clear instructions about this or request for changes or time was out when they noticed the issue... Who knows?

Wasn't Carcassonne supposed to be a "visual" game?  O:-)

Yes. This is really need to create Worldwide rules which divide that fields as they are divided by displayed features on each tile.
What do you think?
