New landscape tiles

The road is not interrupted on this landscape tile. At the upper edge it separates the field, at the lower edge it does not.

On these two tiles, the city segments under the bridges are not interrupted. So there is always only one city segment under the bridge.

On this tile as well, the city segment under the bridge is not interrupted. So there is always only one city segment under the bridge.

The city segment with the pennant ends at the two fields at the lower edge, which are separated by the road. This is especially important for farmer scoring at the end of the game.

Rules

Preparation

At the start of the game, shuffle the new landscape tiles with the rest of the tiles.

1. Placing a tile

The tiles are placed following the basic rules of Carcassonne. Note the following special features:
On the side of a tile, on which there is a city gate, either a field or a road may be placed.
It is also allowed to place another city gate. In this case, the 2 cities are not connected by the city gates.

CityGates C1 Example 01.png

On this tile with 3 city gates all possibilities for placing are shown
❶ At the left gate another city gate was built, but both parts of the city are separated
❷ The lower gate borders on a field
❸ The right gate borders on a road]]

2. Placing a follower

The rules of the Carcassonne basic game apply to the placement of a follower. No followers are placed on the city gates on the edge of the tile. On the small fields next to the city gates, however, followers may be used as farmers.

3. Scoring a feature

The rules of the Carcassonne Basic Game apply to scoring during the game. It is important to know that a street is also limited by a city gate. This can lead to a finished road consisting of only 1 road section.

CityGates C1 Example 02.png On the left side, a city gate will be placed against the street. The road is now finished and red gets 1 point for it.

CityGates C1 TileExplain 01.png For this landscape tile with 4 city gates, the following different scoring applies: If the player places a follower in the city after placing the tile, a scoring takes place immediately, since the city is closed. The player receives 4 points and immediately takes his follower back into supply.

Final scoring

The rules of the Carcassonne basic game apply to the final scoring.

Other expansions

Abbey & Mayor: The abbey may also be placed at a city gate. Likewise, the wagon may drive through a city gate when moving, unless there is a field at the city gate.

Bridges, Castles and Bazaars: The bridges from this extension can also be used in combination with the city gates. The city gates count like a piece of street. The following examples illustrate this:

Blue placed the landscape tile with the city gate and put a follower on the city. Now he is allowed to build a bridge on the fields of the neighboring landscape tile, which starts at the city gate and leads across the city.
To the right of this bridge, a street or another city gate could be built or a new bridge could be built on a field.
Red has just placed the marked landscape tile and is now building a bridge on it. The bridge leads over the field and red connects the city gate with his street on the right landscape tile. The road is now finished and red gets 2 points.


Hills & Sheep: The shepherd may also be placed in the small fields next to the city gates.
