Rules

Preparation

The three Darmstadt tiles should be mixed in with the other land tiles. When played with the base Carcassonne game without expansions, we recommend first removing two base game cloister tiles from the game.

Darmstadtium

Placing a tile

When you draw any of the Darmstadt Land tiles you place them according to the normal rules. The Darmstadtium tile must be placed in a city, and the two church tiles are treated as cloisters.

Deploying a Follower

You may place a meeple on either of the Church tiles as if they were cloisters.

The Catholic Church of St. Louis of Toulouse

Scoring

When you complete one or more features (e.g. a monastery, a road, a city etc.) by placing any of the Darmstadt tiles, you score it according to the normal rules.

There is additional scoring for the two different types of tile.

The Russian Orthodox Church of St. Mary Magdalene

Darmstadtium

If the Darmstadtium is present in a completed city, the player who has the majority of followers in that city earns 3 extra points, in addition to the usual points scored for that city [1].

Church Tiles

  • The Catholic Church of St. Louis of Toulouse
  • The Russian Orthodox Church of St. Mary Magdalene

These two church tiles are treated as cloisters. [2]. When one of these churches is completed, it is first scored the same as a cloister in the base game rules. In addition, the player who has the most followers on the church tile and the 8 surrounding tiles scores 3 extra points. In case of a tie, all players involved get the 3 points.

Final scoring

There is no additional scoring at the end of the game specific to the Darmstadt tiles. Features on all three tiles are scored as in the normal rules.
