The Fortune Teller
General info and comments
The Fortune Teller was released by HiG in 2016. It was the 3rd official PnP expansion for the C1 edition and in same time the first official PnP expansion for the C2 edition. Original design by Jeffrey Putnam (CarcC).
Mysterious fortune tellers have been appearing across the land of Carcassonne, possessing the ability to see what lies ahead. This rare profession may bring an advantage to those hoping to get a glimpse into the future…

At the start of the game, shuffle the fortune teller tiles with the rest of the tiles. For this expansion, we recommend to draw the tiles out of a bag (e. g. from the 2nd expansion).
Benefit of the fortune teller
For every meeple on a fortune teller tent the player may draw 1 extra tile out of the bag at the beginning of his turn.
This can be 3 tiles maximum, if he has 2 fortune tellers as permitted.
From the drawn tiles the player chooses one and places it. He puts the other(s) tile(s) back in the bag and shuffles it.
If a player loses a fortune teller (see 3. Scoring a feature) he also loses the ability to draw an extra tile.
