Official Rules / Re: Can bridges lead to an open field?
« on: September 28, 2022, 03:11:18 PM »
The official rule does not seem to mention this, but my understanding is that the spirit is that bridge A is illegal. A bridge is essentially an elevated road that connects to a road or another bridge, which ultimately connects to a road. As you said, bridge A kills a road at the edge of a tile, which does not happen other than in the rare case of an Abbey.

We decided for these house rules:
  • Two big meeples for each player instead of one
  • Every inn/cathedral on a completed road/city gives points to its owner (but if they remain open at the end of the game, the owner loses points!)
  • Who gets the most of a type of goods gets 10 points + as many points as the number of tokens for that type they got
Wish us good luck!  8)

I would say, just like the tournaments before, we go down the list and do them all at some point.
Does BGA allow both real-time mode and turn-based mode?

Voted. ^-^

Official Rules / Re: Stealing Cities with Phantoms
« on: March 06, 2022, 07:34:02 PM »
Without the knowledge of the timing of any rules or FAQs or clarification, I can understand and accept that one may not deploy the phantom after removing a knight with the princess tile but one may do so after removing a knight with a tower.

If there are towers, your phantom risks being captured in the next round by your opponent if they want to retaliate. Your opponent does not need to draw the tower tile to add to a tower and there may be multiple towers/bases that they can build on to capture your phantom. All they need to have is a tower piece and a tower/base that can capture your phantom.

In contrast, there is a much smaller chance that your opponent can steal back the city even if the combo in question were allowed. They have to draw a princess tile and that very tile has to have appropriate edges and orientation to connect to the city.

Hahahaha. Hunters and gatherers. The first impression wasn't so great because of the colour scheme. And I vaguely remember it has something to do with the rules.

Alright. Seeing that it's going to be a $20+ damage, let me try to lower your expectation a bit, just in case. I like all Carcassonne spin-offs but one that I've ever tried.  So me liking Cardcassonne does not mean that much.  ;)

I thought each player selects a double-sized tile at the beginning of the game. Does that imply we should all know who gets what and you just cannot ask to view the tile once it's taken? Or is it that a faced-down tile is randomly distributed to each player?

First of all, I, too, like the card game very much.

I agree it's very different when adapted to a card game, but that gives it the advantage of not being comparable to the original board game. In my experience, luck tends to play a much more important role in a card game than its board game. This is especially because of the smaller size of the game, e.g. San Juan vs. Puerto Rico.

And I would like to join the batch order if possible. I'm on the east coast in the US, though.

Anyway, what is that: Penghuang?

That's an unknown issue of the auto translation. The original FB post basically says it's only available in Taiwan. They used the more "complete" term, 台澎金馬, so that it is clear the adjacent islands are included, not just the main island.
