Bonus Points
Set up the game as described in the base game rules. There are only a few
things that change when playing with 5 or 6 players.
Your Personal Display
The 5th and 6th player take the components in their color as well as a
farmyard board. They start with two people in their house like everyone else.
Room and Field Tiles
Add the provided room and field tiles to those of the base game. You do not need to separate them after play.
New Game Board Extension
Attach the new game board extension to the game board with the proper side facing up, according to the number of
players noted on the game board extension. (You will not need the game board extensions from the base game.)
The starting player gets 2 food. Every other player (including the 5th and 6th player) gets 3 food.
Major Improvement Cards
This expansion provides 8 additional major improvements that are only used in the 6-player game. These include
one copy of each different major improvement with higher building costs than those of the base game (except for the
additional Well).
First place the 10 major improvements of the base game on the supply board. Then place each of the 8 new major
improvements underneath the corresponding base game card. In case of the Fireplace and Cooking Hearth, place the
new one underneath the more expensive copy.
So place the Fireplace for
4 clay underneath the Fireplace
for 3 clay, and the Cooking
Hearth for 6 clay underneath
the Cooking Hearth for 5 clay.

Minor Improvement Cards
There are no minor improvements specific to a certain player count; simply use the cards provided in the base game.
There are enough cards for up to 6 players. Nevertheless, this expansion includes 4 minor improvements from the
L deck, promoting the Kennerspiel des Jahres winner 2016—“Isle of Skye“. You may add them to the base game
cards, if you like.
If you “draft” cards (see base game appendix on page 8 and following), with 6 players, each
player will only get 8 minor improvements to choose from.
Currently, in a 6-player game, the Young Artist (C171) only has access to up to 6 (or 10)
additional minor improvements.
Occupation Cards
Add the 48
occupations of this expansion to the occupations in the base game and shuffle them. Deal each player
7 occupations as usual. If you like, you can only use the occupations of this expansion—they work together pretty well.
A few of the new occupations use the following phrases:
Your lone occupation: To play an occupation phrased like this, you may not have played any other occupation,
and you may not play any occupations after this. When played, it must be and remain your only occupation in play.
(Return all of your occupations in hand to the game box.) Currently, the Village Idiot (B176) is the only card phrased
like this.
Turning a card face down: Some occupations only provide you a benefit when you decide to turn them face down at
any point. When you do, you receive the goods promised by the occupation. A face-down occupation still counts as a
played occupation but it does not do anything any longer for the rest of the game.
Course of Play
There are no changes to the course of play. The new action spaces for 5 and 6 players,
however, feature some peculiarities that we would like to explain.
Linked Spaces
This expansion features three pairs of action spaces that are connected via a grey farmer symbol
and surrounded by a common stone wall, namely “Lessons/Copse”, “Lessons/Modest Wish for
Children”, and “House Building/Traveling Players”. We call them linked spaces.
Whenever you place a person on a linked space, the connected action space is blocked for the
rest of that round. In other words, linked spaces are pairs of action spaces of which only one
action space can be used per round.
Two of the linked spaces are accumulation spaces (“Copse” and “Traveling Players”). If you use them, as usual, take
all the goods that have accumulated there. If you use an action space connected to an accumulation space, the goods
remain on the accumulation space.
A blocked action space cannot be used by any player that round but it does not count as occupied. If a card refers to
an occupied action space, it only affects action spaces with a person on it.
Example: You place a person on “House Building”. The food on the
connected “Traveling Players” accumulation space remains on the space
and cannot be taken by any player via a person’s action. “Traveling
Players” is blocked but not occupied.
Major Improvement Cards
In the 6-player game, during setup, you place the 8 additional major improvements beneath the corresponding cards of
the base game. Whenever you build a major improvement, you must build the one from the top of a pile. You cannot
build one that is covered by another copy of itself.
Note: Except the new Well, all the additional major improvements are more expensive than their base game
counterparts. The new Well costs 3 stone and 1 clay (which is just a different cost from the original Well).
Still, you must build the 3 stone 1 wood Well before you can build the other.
As usual, you may have multiple copies of the same major improvement, e.g. to deny them to other players. Except
the Fireplaces and Cooking Hearths, having multiple copies of the same major improvements provides you with
additional benefits.
Example: You have both Joineries. Each harvest, you can turn 2 wood into 2 food each. During scoring, you
can spend up to 7 wood twice to get up to 6 bonus points total.
The New Major Improvement Cards
This is true for all improvements:
Apart from the building cost, they are identical to their base game counterparts.
A covered improvement can only be built when the improvement on top of it has been built (by the
same or a different player).
Fireplace (4 clay): Place this Fireplace underneath the Fireplace for 3 clay. This Fireplace can be replaced with a
Cooking Hearth as usual. If you do replace it, place it underneath the Fireplace for 3 clay again (if need be).
Cooking Hearth (6 clay): Place this Cooking Hearth underneath the Cooking Hearth for 5 clay. This Cooking Hearth
can be acquired by replacing a Fireplace as usual.
Well (3 stone, 1 clay): If you build both Wells, place 5 food on round spaces each time.
Clay Oven (4 clay, 1 stone): If you build both Clay Ovens, you can turn up to 2 grain into 5 food each when baking
Stone Oven (2 clay, 3 stone): If you build both Stone Ovens, you can turn up to 4 grain into 5 food each when baking
Joinery (2 wood, 3 stone), Pottery (2 clay, 3 stone), Basketmaker’s Workshop (2 reed, 3 stone): If you build both
copies of one craft building, you can use both copies during the harvest to turn up to two building resources of
the respective type into food. During scoring, you can use each copy individually to generate bonus points (see
example above).
The Action Spaces
Action Spaces for 5 and 6 Players:
Lessons: Play 1 occupation. The occupation cost is 2 food.
Copse: Add 1 wood at the start of every round. When you use it, take all the wood on the action space.
Lessons: Play 1 occupation. The occupation cost is 1 food if this is your first or second occupation this
game. Otherwise, it is 2 food.
Modest Wish for Children: This action space is only available from round 5 on. Here you get a new
person, provided you have room in your house.
House Building: Add one or more rooms to your house. Each room costs 5 building resources of the
appropriate type plus 2 reed. Your house must be made of one material.
Traveling Players: Add 1 food at the start of every round. When you use it, take all the food on the
action space.
Riverbank Forest: Add 1 wood at the start of every round. When you use it, take all the wood on the action space.
Additionally, you get 1 reed from the general supply.
Grove: Add 2 wood at the start of every round. When you use it, take all the wood on the action space.
Hollow: Add 3 clay at the start of every round. When you use it, take all the clay on the action space.
Resource Market: You get 1 reed, 1 wood, and 1 stone from the general supply.
Animal Market: You get 1 animal of your choice from the general supply. If you take sheep, you also get 1 food. You
must pay 1 food before you take cattle.
Action Spaces for 6 Players Only:
Farm Supplies: You can plow 1 field for 1 food. Additionally or alternatively, you can buy 1 grain for 1 food. You
may do both actions on a turn, but you may not repeat either action on a turn.
Resource Trade: You get 1 food as well as 2 building resources from the general supply. You must choose between
reed and stone, as well as between wood and clay.
Corral: You get 1 animal from the general supply of a type you currently do not have. You cannot choose: you must
take sheep before wild boar before cattle. For instance, if you are missing sheep and cattle, you get 1 sheep. If
you already have all types of animals on your farm, you cannot use this action space.
Side Job: You can build exactly 1 stable for 1 wood. You cannot build more than 1 stable during the same action.
Additionally or alternatively, you can take a “Bake Bread” action.
Improvement: Until round 4, you can only play a minor improvement here. From round 5 on, you can either play a
minor improvement or build a major improvement.
