In a game against Adda (of course, that does not count), I made the farm once worth 21 points.

I was really struggling to imagine how this could have been possible. But now it seems obvious: besieged cities. So technically you could end up with all 4 of them being besieged and have a farmer in the middle worth 24 points I suppose. That would be awesome!  :) :(y)

Thanks, Dan! I was thinking that Hounk has misinterpreted something, and I wasn't even thinking about how it could be possible! :)

Yeah. I had visions of including The Fliers and Abbey & Mayor and trying to fly a barn onto it! Even if that was possible it would still only be 20 points.

Yeah, of course. The Besiegers it was. Three besieged cities and one normal to be completed. Of course, there is a lot of luck to complete this, first you need an oponent, who let that be done, and second you have to draw enough besieged tiles. I played only with the six tiles version, if you add the 4 Kathars tiles, it gets of course more likely.

I have to vote for the FFFF from I&C.  I love wreaking havoc with it.  My wife loves to claim the farm in the middle and try to make four cities out of it.

I think you mean the CCCC tile. It's a fun tile indeed.

I Do indeed.  Thanks for the correction.

Love that one too!

From the catapult, it has to be the tile with the fair inside the 4-way road.

The Cathedral-tile!  Have a home/love-relation with that one but it's possible to use it in so many ways:

- making a big-many-points-city
- joining different cities
- add it to someone elses big city in the end and make that one worthless...yep, that's the hate-relation if someone else does that to me... :-)
- and most of the time: causing a big meeple-fight over domination/take-over of that city

I voted for the CCCC with a field in the middle as the best because I love playing that tile. I liked it so much, I ordered a spare.

The funniest tile IMHO is the T&B tile attached.  This rich jerk didn't want to share the road with the peasants from the nearby city, so he built a bridge.  The android game chokes on calculating farms near this tile.

Judging on gameplay I have a hard time deciding since every tile has its own merits at the right time and situation. Difficult te pick one.

Purely based on the looks, for me the Russians are beyond anything. Especially the new ones, Nightingale the Robber and Vodyanoy. Unfortunately, I do not have those (yet). I'm choosing Bogatyr!
