General info and comments

The Cleric & Serf fan-expansion was released by Carcassonne Central member Novelty, with assistance by Scott and based upon an original idea by Christoph Berger. It is analogous to the mini-expansion King and Robber Baron , and it is recommended, though not required, that you play the two expansions together.

The Cleric doesn't required any specific expansion to play.

Rules

Preparation

  1. Shuffle the new land tiles together with the land tiles of the basic game.
  2. Place the cleric and serf tiles, as well as the cloister tokens, next to the scoring track.

Gameplay

1. Placing a tile

Whenever you draw a tile, place it normally.

2. Placing a meeple

You may place a meeple according to the usual rules.

3. Scoring a feature

The Serf
As soon as a player scores the placed barn during the game, he or she should take the Serf tile. Note the total number of farmers that are removed when the barn is placed. If, during the course of play, another barn is placed which removes more farmers than when a barn was previously placed, the player who played the barn takes the serf tile.[1]

Blue places a barn and removes a yellow farmer. If this is the first time a barn is played in this game, Blue takes the serf tile. If a barn has been previously played, Blue takes the serf tile provided that the previous barn removed less than one farmer.

The Cleric
As soon as a player scores the first cloister, he or she should take the Cleric tile. If, during the course of play, another player scores more cloisters, then that player receives the Cleric tile.

The player that completes a cloister receives a cloister token, provided that there is still a spare cloister token in the supply. This player may not be the same player that scores the cloister.

Black places the last tile around a cloister and completes the cloister. Black gets a cloister token if there is a spare cloister token in the supply. Red gets 9 points as usual. If this is the first time that a cloister has been scored, then Red gets the Cleric tile from the supply. If, on the scoring of this cloister, Red has scored more cloisters than any opponent, red gets the Cleric tile from the player holding the Cleric tile.

Final Scoring

The Serf
At the end of the game, before the farms are scored, the player holding the Serf tile scores 1 point for every farmer[2] remaining in the game and 5 points for every barn that has been played.

The Cleric
At the end of the game, the player holding the Cleric Tile scores 10 points. The player holding the Cleric tile also scores 3 points for every completed city with a cathedral and 2 points for every abbey played.

The player who has collected the most Cloister tokens scores 10 points. As usual, in the case of a tie all players involved score the full 10 points, unless one of the players involved is holding the Cleric tile, in which case, the player with the Cleric tile gets 10 points and other player 0 points.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Official clarification from the publisher If you are not playing with the Abbey & Mayor expansion, the first player to place a farmer should take the Serf tile. If, during the course of play, another player establishes a larger farm (according to the number of followers on that farm) then he or she receives the Serf tile.
  2. Official clarification from the publisher This is the total number of farmers for all players.
