Some random questions
Gold Fields - In a scenario with islands, do I earn a victory point when settling islands consisting only of gold fields, or is no extra victory point awarded in this case?
That depends entirely on the respective scenario. In scenarios with foreign islands, each player who places his first settlement on a foreign island receives two special victory points (according to the reformed rule). This rule also applies if a foreign island consists only of gold fields.
Large Trade Ship - May I use the Large Trade Ship to trade resources from diagonally adjacent regions?
Yes. Two city expansions located in the same city and on the same side of the road are equal with regard to their effect on the regions adjacent to them.
No, the Gold Cache in an "extraordinary" site and thus cannot be selected when a Feud is drawn.
Axel the Innovator - May I build the new building at a different location - for example, may I remove a road complement and then build a city expansion?
No. The new building replaces the removed building and thus must be placed at the location of the removed building.
The player who discards him.
General Questions - Why are the images of ingredients or question marks large on some movement cards and small on others?
The size is supposed to create a 3D perspective.
The Friendly Robber - Do I have to place the friendly robber on a hex adjacent to which I have a settlement or city if any other position would affect players with less than 3 victory points?
Yes. However, this will happen only in very rare cases.
The neutral castles in the 2-player variant serve the purpose of restricting the space for the two players.
Heroes (discarded after using their special effect) - To defend myself against activated heroes that have "special effects," can I use the protective actions that are effective against the corresponding attack-action?
No. Although Godfrey's effect resembles a Traitor's effect, being an intriguer allows Godfrey to get past the Lookout Tower and Heinrich the Sentinel. Also the Grove of Peace cannot be used against these cards.
Note: The Grove of Peace belongs to the Age of Enlightenment
No. Only oases with symbols can be rated, and water must only be paid for oases that can be rated.
