No, trading with the bank even with your ports (2:1, 3:1) is not allowed. If that rule did not exist, it would be very unlikely to have more than 7 cards in your hand. Taken from the rules (http://www.catan.com/files/downloads/settlers_5-6_rv_rules_100107.pdf): • Special Building Phase – Your opponents may build as outlined below. The Special Building ...

Yes, it's correct, in that to use everything in the box, you absolutely need the base set and On the Brink. There are things in there that directly add on to things from On the Brink, and would be useless without it. But you can still use most of it without On the Brink. You can add in the roles and events, and you can play the lab, solo, and team variants. ...

Baratheon strength 2 is Final if the Throne ranking so determines : which house executes first and next house executes after. So slightly counter-intuitively the lower Throne ranking would receive the benefit in this case. http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/73198-house-card-questions/ ...

The difference is that wizards printed a whole lot of chronicles, and they sold it cheaper than normal packs. The result was a massive market flood of cards, some of which actually were somewhat valuable. compare the prices of Nicol Bolas to other obscure legends that weren't printed in chronicles like Angus Mackenzie, to see how chronicles affected it. ...

yes. Taken from the 5-6 players rules pdf: http://www.catan.com/files/downloads/settlers_5-6_rv_rules_100107.pdf emphasis mine: • Special Building Phase – Your opponents may build as outlined below. The Special Building Phase occurs just after the end of your turn (i.e., between player turns). All the other players may participate in the Special ...

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/148931/coup-reformation is the expansion for more than 6 players. It contains 15 cards; 3 of each rather than 2 of each. I think the rules from the game say how many cards to use for how many players, since someone quotes it as 25(5 of each) cards for 9-10 players. Since you use 15(3 of each) cards for 6 players, ...

From the horse's mouth: A glance at print run numbers available in the public domain shows that Chronicles likely increased the number of some cards in existence by a factor of ten or more! Cards that were rare and highly collectible were suddenly ubiquitous. The error was one of scale... Read: market prices for a lot of cards crashed out of nowhere ...

The biggest problem with Chronicles was overprinting. The set was in-print from August 1995 to December 1996. As can be seen with other individual cards, reprints drive the prices down, and the more copies of a card exist, the lower the price. The difference between Chronicles and Modern Masters is quantity. Chronicles was in-print for over a year, and ...

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 ...

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, ...

You could just not use all of the expansions at once. Instead, pick one or two expansions, maybe at random, every game. Now there is variability, and each game will be different, but you don't have a ton of extra tiles and rules in play in any given game. This is how collectible card games like Magic the Gathering, or deck building games like Dominion, ...
