I would say yes, as long as you have 4 corners touching. In other words, I would think for portals, it could only be placed on the 90-degree corner and not the 45-degree corners.

There appears to be no restrictions on placing the falcons on expansion tiles. However, the rules do make clear that you only count the color of the BASE game tiles when matching. So the less you have, the more restricted the placement will be. And since you must match 2 colors, at least 2 of the 4 tiles must be base game tiles.

I think also that it, as you say. Utilizing the corners of 90 degrees about the portal. That the two tiles at a minimum is the basic of the tile. I understand these things.

In Japan, where I live, yet this expansion is not been played.
I did not have a partner to consult.
Thank you.

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?

I disagree.

The rules say
Quote:
Each falcon must be placed (face up) on the intersection of four building tiles of the player’s own Alhambra ...

and later,
Quote:
Falcons can be placed on starting fountains, ...


But Portals are no building tiles:
Quote:
Portals cannot be rebuilt or kept in reserve. A building tile touching a portal may be rebuilt only if the portal still touches at least one building tile of its color after rebuilding is complete.

Portals are treated in a completely different way from building tiles.

That's why I wouldn't allow falcons on a portal.

I would agree
