A colleague on BGG has just pointed us to a set of three unofficial (and almost certainly permission-free) Carcassonne tiles that have been given out for the past few years at the Russian National Carcassonne League as promos. They include a tile depicting Baba Yaga, from Russian folklore, and I am beyond thrilled. I plan to make them ASAP with my blank tiles that were included in my Big Box. Hurray!
I’m not entirely sure I understand the rules he gives for the road pieces, but I think it just means they are treated as regular crossroads, terminating all roads that lead there. For the Baba Yaga piece, he says this:
Baba Yaga’s Hut
The player who places this tile may place a meeple onto Baba Yaga’s Hut. The meeple becomes Baba Yaga! The tile acts as an ‘anti-cloister’. A player scores 1-point for each absent surrounding land tile at the end of the game. The hut itself is worth 1-point, so at most, Baba Yaga may score 8-points. If Baba Yaga’s Hut is completely surrounded, Baba Yaga will be removed and scores just 1-point; the meeple is returned to the player’s supply.
