I'm playing an online game of Agricola right now and we've just reached Round 14.
I have a 3-room Wooden Hut with 4 Family Members in it, and a Reed Hut containing my fifth token. I have also played the Church Warden.
Obviously I'd quite like to convert my Reed Hut person into a Family Member for 3 extra points this turn, but what is the interaction with the Church Warden? I see at least three possibilities:
(1) I can use the Reed Hut person to carry out a Family Growth action at any time, at which point he converts to a newborn. Would get +3 VP from the Church Warden.
(2) I can only use the Reed Hut person to carry out a Family Growth as my fifth action of the turn (in the unlikely event that Family Growth Without Room is still available then!), at which point he converts to newborn. Would get +3 VP from the Church Warden.
(3) I can use a Family Member to carry out Family Growth at any time but this will immediately wipe out my Reed Hut person. I won't get VP from the Church Warden and all I will have achieved is saving myself 1 Food.
Is anyone confident enough to offer a definitive ruling for this corner case?
