Hi. The base Carcassonne set includes a tile with 4 disconnected road segments (each segment begins near the center of the tile and extends to an edge of the tile). On the big-box tile sheet is is labeled as 'X'. The 4 roads running N, S, W, E create what appear to be 4 separate fields, one in each corner. However, looking closely at the center of the tile, between the buildings, it appears that at least some of the fields are connected (maybe 3 of the 4?)

We've been treating this tile as 4 disconnected fields, but now I'm wondering if some or all are connected. Anybody know?

Unless the road goes into a tunnel (which occurs in some expansion tiles), roads always divide farmlands, even if there's a "tiny patch of green" spliting the road at an intersection.

I know this is an old thread but the question came up tonight. Bottom left corner of page three in the instructions shows that each corner of this tile is its own farm segment.
