Official Rules / Re: Wagon and Builder
« Last post by Meepledrone on Today at 09:46:26 AM »
Builders can be placed with any meeple in a city or on a road. Builders are special figures, not meeples.

The rules of any expansion are always written as if you were playing with the base game only... So you, as a seasoned player and rules interpreter, must infer -according to HiG's standards- that when the rules say meeple, you must assume any meeple unless stated otherwise or any constraints apply.

Please check this set of extended comments I prepared for the base game when combined with expansions. I will add it the the main Base Game page eventually:

https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Base_Game_-_Test#Interactions_with_expansions

One of the points deals with the meeple denomination.

General notes:
* A meeple is:
   - A normal meeple (Base Game)
   - An abbot meeple (Basr Game  - The Abbot)
   - A large meeple (Exp. 1 - Inns & Cathedrals)
   - A wagon (Exp. 5 - Abbey & Mayor)
   - A mayor (Exp. 5 - Abbey & Mayor)
   - A ringmaster (Exp. 10 - Under the Big Top)
   - A phantom (The Phantom)
* A special figure is:
   - A builder (Exp. 2 - Traders & Builders)
   - A pig(Exp. 2 - Traders & Builders)
   - A barn (Exp. 5 - Abbey & Mayor)
   - A shepherd (Exp. 5 - Hills & Sheep)
   - A messenger (Mini #2 - Messages) - on the scoreboard
   - A robber (Mini #6 - Robbers) - on the scoreboard
* A neutral figure is:
   - The fairy (Exp. 3 - The Princess & the Dragon)
   - The dragon (Exp. 3 - The Princess & the Dragon)
   - A tower floor (Exp. 4 - The Tower)
   - The Count (Exp. 6 - Count, King & Robber)
   - A bridge (Exp. 8 - Castles, Bridges & Bazaars)
   - The Big Top (Exp. 10 - Under the Big Top)
   - The Big Pink Pig (The Wheel of Fortune)
   - The special die (Mini #1 - Flier)
   - A ferry (Mini #3 - Ferries)
   - A gold ingot (Mini #4 - Goldmines)
   - The Mage (Mini #5 - Mage & Witch)
   - The Witch (Mini #5 - Mage & Witch)
   - The teacher (The School)
   - The Gingerbread Man (Winter Edition - The Gingerbread Man)

Were there any reasonable options for direct flights from Prague, it would probably pay off  ;D I still could not make up my mind if I actually like or hate this mini...but for this price, I would be happy to try myself.

Yes, wagon is considered as meeple, but with extra moving mechanic and inability to place on a farm.

You can place your wagon on a tile just like placing a meeple, and it does count as a single meeple for scoring and control of the feature.

Builders can be added to features that you control, but I don’t see anything on WikiCarPedia that specifically says that you can add your builder to your wagon controlled feature and then get builder second turns.

Is this legal?

Indeed!
Usually 999 Games is very quick with new releases. I remember getting Safari from them because they were even before HiG with that one
I noticed they did use the image style on a banner during the Dutch&Belgian championships, even stating "De bekende klassieker in een nieuw jasje". Heavily hinting at their C3, but maybe they're getting rid of the C2 stock first?

Haven't heard confirmation from ZMG that their C3 base game is out yet. I remember when i ordered the ZMG BB7 i asked the shop if they had any idea about the base game, and they said they had no idea yet.

A few days ago i was ordering some stuff online, and noticed a listing for the Carcassonne base game. It had it before, but with both C3 and C2 box art, so that was probably old C2 stock.
Now the pictures were all updated to be C3, so i figured i'd take a gamble....

Today i received the parcel, and there it is!


ZMG have made a thing!
