Rules

Preparation

Shuffle the new landscape tiles in with those from the basic game and stack them normally.

Gameplay

1. Placing a tile

New tiles are placed according to the usual rules of the basic game. After placing a tile with a letter symbol, immediately move the Courier figure to it, regardless of where it is currently located.

Example 1 - You place tile with letter symbol and move the Courier to the placed tile.
2. Placing a meeple

You may place a meeple according to the usual rules.

3. Scoring a feature

The Courier (Fan Expansion) does not affect scoring.

4. End of turn - The Courier Move - Receiving a thank-you message

If the player's meeple, placed in this turn, meets all of the following conditions:

  1. stands at the end of the turn in an unfinished feature such as a city, road, monastery, or garden
  2. stands on a tile with letter OR stands horizontally or vertically to the tile on which the Courier stands,

then the Courier figure is moved to that meeple and the player receives a thank-you message from the Courier for the unfinished feature, which score you points as in the final scoring of the game.

A farmer placed in a field cannot receive a message from the Courier because he is on a feature that cannot be completed and scored during the game.

Example 2 - Blue placed a meeple on an unoccupied and unfinished city as a knight, and the Courier stands vertically away from him. He satisfies the condition for receiving a thank-you message from the Courier. The Courier moves to the knight, Blue receives a thank-you message from the Courier and scores 4 points for the unfinished city.
