After a few plays, I started digging into the glossary booklet to gain some insights into the different buildings. I'm impressed by it. Great, clear explanations, examples, and guidance throughout. Even touches of lighthearted humor, as in the description of the Calefactory:

Quote:
C - Calefactory
Location: adjacent to cloister building (on a Coast, Plains or Hillside space)
Economic value: 2, Dwelling value: 5
Number of players: 1, 3, 4
Building number: F32

(The calefactory was a warming room and usually the only room other than the kitchen / infirmary where fire was permitted.)

Pay 1 coin to carry out the "fell trees" action and / or the "cut peat" action. (You must remove 1 forest card when felling trees. You must remove 1 moor card when cutting peat.) The production wheel determines how much wood and peat you take. If you don't have any forest cards you cannot fell trees, and if you don't have any moor cards you cannot cut peat. (If you have neither, then you can still use the Calefactory although you will end up paying 1 coin for nothing more than warm feet.)

Nicely done. thumbsup

Agree completely. Do note that the "shipyard" is missing from the page one list of buildings (it's on page 5).

Actually it's not missing from the page one list, but is instead located further down between Town Estate and Whiskey Distillery. I assume this is because the rules were translated to English from German, and the German for Shipyard is Werft (think Wharf). Of course, the entry should have been correctly re-alphabetized after it was translated.
