I just unboxed my "new" antiquity and am going through the components. The rules do not include pictures so I am having a hard time figuring out some of the bits.

The book says that I should have 1 Famine board. I have 4. Why is this? They all look the same.

I cannot seem to find the Inns. Is there. Picture of what they look like?

I cannot find the woodcutter. What do they look like?

I cannot find the farm. What do they look like?

I cannot find the mine. What do they look like?

Do these even exist?

Thanks for the help. If these pieces are in fact missing, where do I go to get them?

Read the rules and you'll see that woodcutters/farms/mines are not pieces.

Yeah, you get spare famine boards.

Inns have the player symbols on them, they're square.

One full famine board consist two of those on different sides.
Other two two are spare items.

Inns are small chits with coats of arms of each color.

There is no such pieces in the game.

Thank you for the answers. But when I look at the player aids farm, woodcutter and mine are listed wit a cost to play them.

Do you mean that these pieces do not exist but are represented in some way when they are needed? Or are they simply not a part of the game?

Thank you again for the help.

Mine is worker that gathers gold or stone.
Farm is worker that gathers food or wine.

or if that clearer - farms and mines are represented by worker and corresponding resource chit(s). Fisheries are represented by worker, fishery piece and corresponding resource chit(s).

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Its all in the rules, and they are actualy very well written and logical rules.
