Gameplay

Feature Robber's Son C2.png


1. Placing a tile

Tiles are placed exactly like those in the base game. If a Robber's son tile continues a road occupied by one or more highwayman, you may remove one highwayman of your choice (even your own) from the continued road and return it to its player's supply. [1]

 Official clarification from the publisher Question: Does the Robber's Son symbol affect two road segments on this tile or just the one with the symbol?

Answer:
Rs c2 (3).png
This tile has three different road segments, that is, 3 separate roads. Only the bottom road segment with the Robber's Son symbol will allow a player to remove a highwayman.
2. Placing a meeple

If you chose to remove a meeple during step 1, you may not place a meeple this turn (not even on a different segment of the tile). If you did not remove a meeple during step 1, you may place a meeple as normal. [2]

Example: You place a Robber's Son tile and remove the blue highwayman from the road. You may not place a meeple this turn.
3. Scoring a feature

Robber's Son (Fan Expansion) does not affect scoring.

New land tiles

The new Land tiles are played like those in the base game.
