  1. Icon Open Book.png As noted in the rules, a player may deploy a barn, play a tower piece, or place a follower on the Wheel of Fortune.
  2. Icon World Black.png It seems a mistranslation by RGG of the original HiG rules. Big Box 3 written rules indicate the dragon moves after scoring but the turn sequence summary instructs to move the dragon before scoring. The written rules have been considered to have precedence in this matter.
  3. 3.0 3.1 Icon Open Book.png An official clarification reverted the rules stated in Big Box 3 that allowed the fairy to be placed by a follower on a castle. The reason stated is that the fairy has to be placed on a tile.
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 4.4 Icon World Black.png The discrepancies in the Big Box 6 rules can be due to a mistranslation by ZMG of the original HiG rules.
  5. Icon World Black.png The discrepancy in the Big Box 4 rules can be due to a mistranslation by ZMG of the original HiG rules.
