Finally manged to get and play Wheel Of Fortune. My collection is so nearly complete (ordered GQ11 from this forum).

Maybe then I could dive into the world of custom tile creations?
If only I had another Halfling.....

Woot! GQ11 landed from the US (I love the APO and my pal in the USAF who has the APO box)
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

Congrats! Although, according to your profile you don't own the base game yet... ???

Who needs the base game? With the besiegers tiles alone in the same alignment as the photo and an unlimited supply of meeples, I count 53 points to be had. Poor city though :(

I have 1 6-point besieged city, 5 points from roads, and 7 6-point farms for 42 points. What am I missing?

I see 6 points for the city, 5 points for the roads, 6 farms for 6 points, and 1 for 8 with the pig =  65.  62 is possible with a standard set of followers (seven standard followers, Big follower, Phantom, cart, pig).

The only way I can think of to add points without changing the tiles is to add the shepherd and some sheep.

But 6 + 5 + (6 x 6) + 8 = 55, not 65. ???

Without pig, 53 is the most points I can find...

Perhaps we should splitt this with the score of the tiles from one expansion.
I like to know what all the other expansions could get points if playing only this expansion without base game or without another expansion...

Perhaps we could ask farin to allow us playing JCloisterZone without the base game (leaving only the starting tile). I assume that wouldn't be so difficult to develop.
Then we could announce further solo contests for the expansions.
