Opinions About Gardens in CII
« on: December 06, 2021, 10:00:53 AM »
By "garden rules", I mean, more or less, "Abbot in the garden as if it were a cloister."

I'm working on a garden variant for CI (using wooden flower tokens instead of tiles), and I'm seeking inspiration from everyone's experiences, likes and dislikes, with respect to the gardens, particularly with respect to tactics or strategy.

I did do some searching, and most of the Forum posts I found seem to be more focused on the Abbot generally, plus they were kind of old.  Opinions in the 2015-2016 time frame were pretty anti-CII generally, and this seemed to carry over to the Abbot and gardens.  But the community has obviously (mostly) warmed to CII over the years, as far as I can tell.  Anyway, here are some links to old posts for anyone who is interested:

I use the C1 conversion of gardens in tiles. This conversion is official and you will find on carcassonne-forum.de
