When can I play a Knight Card.

For example, when it's my turn, and I already have a knight card I have not played, can I use it if I do not have the robber on one of my hexes?

Or, if it's another players turn, and they place a robber one of my hexes, can I immediately counter them with one of my Knight cards, or do I have to wait until it's my turn to use it to remove the robber?

    Welcome, to board & cardgames. Next time when you have two questions, please ask them as separate questions. In this case I could change them into a single question, so no need to change it now. Jul 23, 2017 at 10:13

1 Answer 1


According to the rules, you can play a Knight card in your turn if you want. But only in your turn.

b) Playing Development Cards

At any time during your turn, you may play 1 Development Card (on the table).

That card, however, may not be a card you bought during the same turn!

    I would add that you can also play the knight on your turn BEFORE you roll your dice :) Jul 27, 2017 at 21:36
