I totally agree with you, Snearone! The designs you propose look awesome. Especially the one of the Markets of Leipzig, for the sake of consistency :)

Missed opportunity... it would have given an extra mechanic to each of the Leipzig double tiles as well.

I agree with snearone. That design is horrible.
Anyway I like that extra mechanics for Leipzig tiles. It can be nice home rules.
@Meepledrone what do you think. Can you add to lepzig and signpost pages on wica this house rule?

Thanks totor66 for those images :)
So in the end there are extra points for more than one kind of valid signpost.
I like how they handled road ends, it avoids a lot of problems altogether.

Wow, thanks for sharing that!

Not sure what to think of the scoring rules.  I like some sort of progressive increase, but having the points depend on the number of types of arrows, while clever, seems like it could really complicate decision-making.  Taking a long time to figure out how to place the tile might actually help you increase your score.

I hope someone who gets them will write a review…

PS: There is also german rules and I hoped it was clearer whether we gain points for roads when we have meeples on it OR when we have majority.

The way it's written makes me think you have points just on majority case, each player wins points when he would score roads.

I would imagine majority rules as per usual tbh.
The German rules might have it a bit clearer, but when ambiguous I'd go with majority  ;D

Oki. Question not solved in rules.

Is straight bridge counted as continued road when straight arrow?

Is there ever a case where a bridge scores differently than a straight road on the tile?  Obviously farms score differently, but does a road with a bridge ever score differently?  I don’t know…

Good. This is good question. Problem is that tunnels is 1.0 and signposts 3.0 :(

HiG will never answer this.
As per usual now, the expansion is designed to work with the base game only, and they'll not clarify any interactions with other expansions.

I personally would say bridges and tunnels count as continuation of the road. And the road must go in the appointed direction on the next tile, so a straight bridge counts only for the straight arrow, and tunnels don't count for anything, as the road doesn't continue directly in the direction of the signpost (unless you place your second token on the same tile)

ok rules found by @petul

https://cundco.de/media/pdf/52/a2/65/DE-Wegweiser-SR-final.pdf

By then:
Road after tunnel continues. but we don't know which direction it means, 0 points for that arrow.
