Before the game starts, players can agree on playing with monuments.
There are three different ones, each of them consisting of three buildings of a player that are horizontally or vertically connected in one line.
They score twice as many points:
house - house - house
palace - house - palace
tower - palace - tower
Only one monument per block may be scored.
In case of a tie, the more valuable monuments prevail.
Please note: White may not score for an additional town wall and Black would win this district also with 16 points (without the house) as the more valuable monument prevails.
