There is a house rule enabling you to trade goods with other players and letting you choose where a tile is placed. 2 new wooden playing pieces are also introduced in this expansion. The Builder is like a meeple, becoming a supervisor of some kind wherever placed. Its subsequent tile extension feature is it lets you have anotehr tile placement. Farmers are also able to place a new Pig pawn in a field to gain extra points at the end of the game.
