Well, no… The guards didn’t quite fit in the guard hut.

The guards are wooden meeples (people shaped pawns), just like the player pieces. They’re larger than those in most games, standing 24mm high. As a comparison, the meeples in Carcassonne are 16mm high. And because they’re large meeples, they didn’t all fit in the hut.

As well as making it slightly larger, we’ve also put in six spaces for the guard meeples. In the early versions of the game (back in March this year) there were up to nine guards in the hut. As the game developed that number came down to six, but somehow we kept nine little circles on the board design. Changing that to six was a bit overdue!
