Some random questions
- If you draw a new card, you may proceed as you wish.
- If you exchange an existing card, you must draw from the same stack you placed the existing card under.
That depends on which player is the first to roll a “?”.
- The Dogma is removed as soon as the player who played it rolls a “?”.
- The Witch is removed as soon as the owner of the Building that carries the Witch rolls a “?”.
The respective other card remains on the Building.
Note: The Dogma belongs to the theme sets "Barbarian & Traders", which is part of the Catan Card Game – Expansion Set.
The computer I use for playing Catan C&K doesn’t have Internet connection. How can I install an update regardless?
If the computer you play “Catan – Cities & Knights” on doesn’t have its own Internet connection, you can also download an update as an independent installer and then use, for example, a USB stick to copy it to your destination computer.
The update to Windows version 1.230 is available here.
(There is no stand-alone update available for Mac OS X at them moment.)
However, if the computer has its own Internet connection, we would definitely recommend that you install the updates via the program’s manual update function.
Settlements - May I place my settlement at a different location if its regions would be more suitable elsewhere?
Conquest - May I conquer a city if en route to it there is another city that hasn't been conquered yet?
General Questions - May I own two of the same type of equipment? For example, if I have found a pair of boots for the second time, may I place the equipment marker with the number 2 at will?
No. If a player lands on an exploration tile whose equipment he already has, he receives an experience point instead, which he can use to improve one of his character's traits (Strength, Prowess, Agility, and Charisma). Nobody is allowed to have two of the same type of equipment.
Buildings - On some of the cardboard tiles, various houses are depicted. In the game “Elasund,” is a “building” represented by a single cardboard tile or by a single house depicted on such a tile?
In the game “Elasund,” a building is a rectangular cardboard tile that can cover one or more squares. It doesn’t matter how many houses are depicted on the tile.
