As it says in the rules for Shattered Empire, if you're using the Age of Empire variant, you have to use the Imperial II strategy card rather than Bureaucracy.

The actual answer is a little more complicated and so doesn't match either of the arguments. While the original card's wording (Italian/English) doesn't match the effect, it doesn't affect played cards (like the Bang! you mentioned), nor does it affect other players outside of their turn (so Bang! cards discarded for Indians are discarded as normal). This ...

I play with the French version of the game which is very clear and could be translated as follow: During phase 1 every player picks his card from the discard pile if it is possible. If so, every card discarded during his round will be put face-down on the draw pile Translation from the original French card: Durant sa phase 1, si c'est possible, ...

According to the FAQ you linked, the tile backs are compatible. If you want to restrict yourself to the new art style just to make it look pretty, you certainly can, but you'll be limited to any expansions that get (re)printed with the new style in the future. So if you want expansions now, you pretty much have to ignore the art difference. Among the older ...

In terms of complexity, it doesn't add much. It all depends on your GOO (Great Old One), in fact, to determine what rules you're playing with in the end. And the additional rules don't make the game harder or more complex. They actually give the players other avenues to solving mysteries. Plus, setting up or tearing down the expansions doesn't add that ...

I have the Forsaken Lore expansion and haven't yet seen that it increases playtime, but it may increase difficulty (much in the same way that playing against Cthulhu in the base game is a little more challenging than say, any of the other Ancients). I have played the Forsaken Lore expansion now a couple of times and it's just as lengthy as the base game.

No, you may not trade 4:1 with the bank during the special building phase. As per the 5-6 player rule book: Also note that players are not allowed to do any trading with other players—nor are they allowed to use Maritime Trade—during this phase The 4:1 trade is defined under Maritime Trade in the base game rulebook: b) Maritime Trade You can ...

The Werewolves of Millers Hollow The Werewolves of Millers Hollow - Original Game The Village - Expansion which also contains Original Game.

From what I understand of the card, and from the wikipedia link which states players draw from the discard pile and discard on the top of the deck. is that when you play a card during phase 2 or if you make anyone discard cards (ex. Cat Balou) then it would go on top of the deck. My card (similar to VGO's translation but from Italian) has confirmed my ...

In the rules for Bridges, Castles and Bazaars you can find the following text: Once all tiles have been claimed, the players will each place their tile (and a follower, if they wish) in clockwise order from the player to the left of the active player. No follower may be placed on the bazaar itself. Later on it's said that there can be no chain ...

When using castles, if a 'clam city' is completed you then make the decision to either score it as a city or turn it into a castle. If it becomes a castle, then no scoring relating to cities applies to it (and scoring for the castle does not occur until and unless a neighboring feature is completed). Since the scoring of siege tiles only applies to cities, ...

Carcassonne is very mutable. But yes the new game is compatible with all the old expansions. Including adding in a 6th or even a 7th or 8th player. Of course the more players you add the more difficult it becomes to keep people focused on the game and have everyone enjoy it. You can buy the extra pieces you need cover the 'missing' ones for extra ...

I have played all combinations of sets up through and including Realms Unraveled. Here are my thoughts: Immortal Heroes will mix in fine with RoTF and CoTG. Immortal Heroes played all on it's own would grow stale quickly Immortal Heroes and Storm of Souls together is an fun block in and of itself - maybe more fun than CoTG and RoTF. If you have an ...

I'm a member of Carcassonne Central. We have about a dozen forums for discussing various aspects of Carcassonne including breaking news, new expansions, general gameplay tips, tournaments and various other projects etc. It's well worth a look if you want to meet with other Carcassonne enthusiasts/ addicts around the world, and it's very friendly too!
