At the beginning of the game, players can agree to play a different setup in the development tiles. Keep following rules in mind.
The number of tiles per level should be at least 3. When playing with 3 or 4 players, the players can consider playing with the number of tiles equal to or 1 more than the number of players.
Every tile should connect to at least 1 tile of 1 level higher.
Tiles cannot connect to a tile of 2 or more levels higher.
The players can decide to start with the building attached to their farm area if the concerned buildings cannot be obtained in the development board.
The players can decide to start with the improved farmhand if the Pickaxe development tile is not in the development board.
Attention! For a 2 player board, when tiles are placed ran- domly there can be not enough development tiles to get the required 3 Thaler. An adjustment is advised.
