Hacienda has two variants that can alter its play. Each of these variants is available on SpielbyWeb.com The variants can be used together or seperately. Here is a brief explanation of each.
When you bring a herd to Market use the following formula for pesos received:
. Multiply the number of animals in the herd times the number of lands that the herd borders on.
First example: if the herd is two animals long and only one land tile is adjacent to the herd: 2x1=2 pesos.
Second example: If the herd is two animals long and the herd touches two land tiles: 2x2=4 pesos. (Note- this is from one animal touching two land tiles)
Third example: You already have a herd to a market and the herd (one animal) is touching three land tiles. You bring a second herd to market that links to the market and the first herd . and one animal is touching three land tiles. You now have 4 animals and are touching six land tiles so your income will be 4x6=24 pesos.
The cost for 1 hacienda is raised to 20 pesos
The cost for 1 water is raised to 20 pesos
In addition to markets, land tiles, haciendas and water, there are now points for herds.
. Every herd of three or more animals counts as many points as animals in the herd. Thus 3 animals is three points, 6 animals is 6 points, etc. 1 or 2 animal herds score no points.
. Points for Pesos . 1 point for every 20 pesos.
All remaining points remain as before.
If you would like to see where scores are during the game, you can score after every action. In this circumstance, there is no mid-game scoring and pesos score only at game end. You can use this for normal play or in conjunction with Variant 1.
In Variant 2, when you bring a herd to market you immediately score points equal to the to the number of markets you have connected. So if you already have 6 markets and you connect the seventh, you receive 7 points.
If a player forgets to move his point marker on his turn, you can catch the points up later by adding up all the players points again.
