can you build settlement on road intersection owned by another user?
In Catan Universe basic game, I still see a settlement being built by AI opponent in my intersection after I've placed roads on 2 out of the 3 intersections. This should be mine only to build, once I've claimed the intersection, right? Is this a bug, or have we been playing the board game incorrectly? I thought your opponent could lay roads up to their intersection, but it was a dead end for them. When AI places a settlement on such a spot, it reduces the count of roads I've built and takes away my longest road card, if the reduction takes me to <5 roads.
This is written in rulebooks. This is allowed. So many people don't know how the game works these days. It's like monopoly. No-one has actually read the rules.
No need to be rude, Stroom. My mom always told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say I should say nothing at all.
But yeah, this is allowed, as long as the settlement you build isn't immediately next to another settlement, and it is directly connected to a road of yours. Such a settlement splits the road it is built on, so this is a strategic move.
When playing cities and knights this could be prevented by placing a knight in that spot. (Although the intrigue card that everyone seems to hate can screw you over if you rely on that knight to block an opponent's settlement.)
Not being rude IMO. Just mentioning how things are with the game.
