- - Interpretations and clarifications of the rules that come from the CarcassonneCentral community (including WICA and original CAR authors) will be marked with the symbol
- - Fully official clarifications from Hans im Glück the original publisher of Carcassonne. Additionally, these official clarifications may be written in a question and answer format, although an effort has been made to keep clarifications concise. Occasionally, official clarifications from other publishers (e.g. Rio Grande Games in the case of the Games Quarterly #11 expansion) are also written in this format.
- - Community Rules agreed to address certain open questions not officially clarified by Hans im Glück.
