Hi.
Anybody else got a SwedishScandinavian version of the game that can confirm what I see?
AFAIK there is no mentioning about farmers anywhere in the rules. Strange indeed? Why remove them?

Ha! I'm curious now... surely that's a mistake... how many pages have you got in the rules?

Don't know about the Scandinavian version, but they've removed farmers from the base game in other versions. But, as far as I know, they have always included farmers under variants.

At least as of the New Art editions of Carcassonne they are on the variant sheet (in the Z-man (NA) version), along where you'd find the rules for the River and Abbots. Though, can understand why it's a variant now as it's one of the hardest things to keep track of in the base set for a new player. Fields can get so big that they become undweildy to eye ball if someone already have a farmer in that field.

We just got the U.S version. The farmers explanation are in the Supplemental Rules, rather than the Core set. The Supplemental Rules though, do come with the core.

So the explanation is probably that they(translators) thought "variant rules" did not need to be translated?

Re-reading the rules again I did see a reference to "supplementary rules" about farmers but that sheet is apparently missing. I guess the box should contain a separate sheet with optional rules.

Both the core rules and supplementary rules are available on the developers web site, in English though. Links below.
