Question about Base Game Longest Road - What happens if the Longest Road is interrupted?

Answer

Here we have to distinguish between 3 cases:

  • If the player who up to this point had the Longest Road still meets the requirements for the Longest Road (either alone or together with another player), he keeps the card.
  • If another player now meets the requirements for the Longest Road, he receives the card.
  • If none of the players - or more than one player - meets the requirements for the Longest Road, none of the players receives the card.
