Can you own more farmlands of the same type later on in the game or is the overall rule that you can own just one of every type of tile (farmlands and production alike)

"Receive one extra unit if a product of which you own a farmland tile is being produced. This extra return comes from the general supply. Only 1 unit per production chip." Does production take place on the board or on the farmtile? So do you get a cube when you normally wouldn't get one if they are divided amongst players from the gameboard. And do you have to pick a tile that gets one more or do all farmlandtiles get one?
(my view was that production is on the gameboard and the every tile of the same type gets one extra cube (if there is enough space of course) and that if you own tiles of both goods that are produced on the board both lead to irrigation)


(btw for the next print run, please make a larger rulebook so that the images are better visable, make a small list of what to sort the tiles into and a turnoverview card would have made it complete)

Hi Marian,

You may have several farmland tiles of the same type. [Only restriction is that you may not two of the same type at the start with 2/3 players]

Production is "initiated" on the game board at production fields. The produced goods will be distributed among the players, the player who has chosen this action is the first one to get his good. If he chooses for a production quantity of 2 or more, other players may also get a good if they have a land tile of the same type.

The tiles can be sorted out very well by the symbols on their backside.

There is a restriction by the way in the development tiles: you may have only one of each type.

Any further questions, let us know.

The Game Master

Thanks for the reply.

Edit: I think I got Irrigation figured out. If you own the development tile Irrigation you get 1 extra cube for every kind of goods that is being produced on the board when you have 1 or more production tiles of that kind on your farm estate. (additional production tiles of that kind don't make you get more cubes in this case, it's "just" the one)

For sorting the tiles I ment a list like this:

16 production tiles:
2x production field plain, 1x production field +1 cash, 1x production field +1 point in four colours corresponding to the goods produced

20 development tiles: (the amounts must be off for one of these, but I can't check)
Poseidon 2x
Irrigation2x
Storage barn 3x
Wagon 3x
Abundance 3x
Greek Trader 3x
Demeter's blessing 4x

(in the image in the rules it looks like 3x4 production tiles en 3x3 development tiles and that is a bit confusing if you are unfamiliar with the game)

And just to make sure you can only build one demeter's blessing (and wisely pick to colour that gets blessed)

Last one. Will a three sqaure boat upon entering the last harbor space with the first two squares be fully unloaded or just the top two squares?

In addition to the above:

If a player has 2 olive production fields on his farm estate and production is chosen and olives get produced, will these two tiles both get one cube at the same time when you divide the cubes or does every player just get one cube at a time during the divide.
