In the rules, it states that you must place a tile on the existing road segment. Does this mean that you have to extend any existing roads, or can you place it so that you start a new road? And what if your tile can't be placed where the existing road is? I know it seems agains the other carcassones, but we've been playing that you do indeed have to place on the existing roads...

You can place a tile anywhere you want. The only tile-to-tile placement rule is that roads must continue. You cannot end a road with a residential area or a market. You can, however, end a road with a wall.

Just to be clear. If you draw a tile with a road on it, you are allowed to play the tile so that a non-road edge abuts another non-road tile edge.

The rule in The City is:

Quote:
Paths on a tile must be continued on any adjacent tiles.
