question about the gifts
« on: October 13, 2021, 07:08:50 PM »
After the road has been scored, the player's meeple is put back into their supply.
this rule is not clear, it makes me think that the text says that you can withdraw a meeple after scoring  the road, the example shows your own meeple, but the rule says that the meeple in the road must be withdrawn after scoring, so it can be any meeple? it is a strong doubt that I have.
thanks for your attention!

The rules are a bit fuzzy, and the recent ruling that "meeple" is invariable does not help either.

The Road Sweeper gift card allows you to score any incomplete road of your choosing, empty or occupied. As you mention, the active player seem to have to remove one of their meeples, if any is present on the chosen road. But the rules address the simplest case only even in the example, so there are many moving parts here, I reckon.

I sent a couple of questions to HiG about this. I hope they reply soon.
