Does anyone know why, when playing carc with the dragon variant, it comes up and says "piece removed" sometimes when the piece is certainly playable?

Good question!

I've searched all of the rules pages on BSW, info pages on BSW as well as the BSW forum and cannot find an answer yet.

I will submit a technical question in the BSW forums.

Hey Tony.

After Playing CC online for a few years, I was quickly informed by the Carcassonne Kings, that the Dragon Expansion is not correctly programmed, and many people experience the same predicament you were in.

I'd stay away from the Dragon, the only expansion, that has errors.

Cheers,
Melissa.

Okie Dokie... I will keep that in mind.  It is still fun to play though.  I like when the dragon munches!

hmmm,
One thing i did wrong with Real Life Dragon set.
Is when the Dragon tile is played.

YOU CAN NOT PLAY A FOLLOWER THAT TURN.
All you do is move the dragon.

As for the princess
if you play it in a town with a follower you must remove a follower and can not play 1

Read ya l8r,

The pieces that are removed that are playable either have the Drogon or Gate on them.  They get shuffled in after a Dragon piece is played.

Thanks Joe!  That's been a mystery a long time.  I'm pretty sure you mean, "after a volcano piece is played", since that's the only time it makes sense to play a dragon tile & move the dragon.

I knew this "piece removed" only happened before the 1st dragon tile, but I never kept track that no magic gates happened before the 1st dragon tile.

Are the pieces themselves shuffled back in then?  Because I know the number of times the dragon moves, is 12 - the number of "pieces removed" before the 1st volcano.

Yes, and in the rules it has nothing about not playing a gate untill the volcano, but for some reason, the BSW game won't.

By the way, something ToneDog showed me, is that you have to watch the blue arrow, right above the tile, for the sign that shows when a magic gate has been pulled.

Never saw that before.  Smiley
