I just received Caylus 2nd edition today. Some of the building pieces were already falling out before I had a chance to punch them out. I decided to take count and it looks like I have an extra piece. I'm not sure if it's an extra and if so which piece is the extra one? After matching all the pieces and so forth the one I think it is would be a stone piece with the building plans on it. So my question is should I have two of these or is one extra?

I feel bad for the guy/girl who gets their copy and is missing the piece that I have extra.

Actually, you have the right number of pieces. Rio Grande included the extra bonus tile in with their 2nd edition packaging. The two duplicate tiles you mentioned were part of the original tile mix. You can see which tile is the bonus tile at the Ystari website: http://www.ystari.com/caylus/eindex.php

(Sorry, I forget the "official" names of the tiles off the top of my head. I'm sure someone will follow up with the right names for the tiles.)

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

The extra tile is the Jeweller.

(Convert 1 gold = 5 points, 2 gold = 9 points)

Thanks for this thread Mark. I was curious about the extra Architect piece in my set of Caylus as well. I didn't realise that it was an intended bonus, since it is not mentioned anywhere in the rules or on the box...

The extra Architect isn't the bonus, Aaron. There were always two. The Jeweller is the bonus.

By the way, for people who have trouble remembering the official names of the buildings, they're written in the background (in a number of languages) on the tile. It's really cool.

I think you're talking about the Architect, and you should have two.

Here's an inventory of pieces in these two pictures.
