Optionally disable Field Scoring

Postby CraWleR » 19 September 2018, 04:05

I don't know what version of Carcassonne my brothers have (I could ask), but the whole concept of Fields was new to me when I first played it on BGA. We've tried playing it together and switched to "Carcassonne Tiles & Tactics" game on Steam. One of the reasons was because it allows Disabling Fields essentially no longer giving you the option of placing Meeples on Fields.

Any chance this could be done on BGA? Limiting certain actions should be a lot easier than implementing them, right?

No, that's not how the game works, and there has never been a version in which that is an option.

BoardGameGeek has a good thread about it: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/91908/ ... ut-farmers
Maybe that's what I've been taught on purpose. Maybe someone just missed it. Will check either way.

Up to you whether you want to do it. Our group has an alternative to go to. Suggesting because I feel like it would be beneficial to have the option.

Field scoring is key to make the game really good. It's about the fine balance of number of meeples, creating a perfect game.

I agree with Daggerheart. The number of meeples one has is limited on purpose. Deciding whether or not to lock one up for the duration of the game in return for a potentially large payout is an important element.

Someone hijacked your account? You agree with me on something??? Can't be true.
