Carcassonne Mastermind
« on: September 02, 2015, 10:30:44 AM »
Greetings to all, here is a new contest of Central Carcassonne.

Some of you know the deductive board game Mastermind?
The player must be able to guess a sequence of colors, thanks to a series of predictions and suggestions, a little at a time via exclusion, the solution will come.

For those wishing to learn more, here's the Wikipedia page.

I thought it would be interesting to combine this game with Carcassonne, so that users could play together.

Attached to this post will insert a password protected zip archive, containing a sequence of four tiles in the basic game, they will be positioned according to the normal rules of placement. Road against roads, city against city, fields against fields.

A player will be able to post his prediction every 24 hours, trying to guess the exact order of the tiles and their correct orientation.
All posts will be edited by a moderator.  The edit will add colored meeple under the prediction, they will be the tips to figure out the exact sequence.
Each meeple is a clue, the meeple corresponds to one tile and the color will indicate what is correct and what is incorrect.
The order of the meeple do not correlate with the order of the tiles!
Thus, The first clue can be referred to any one of the 4 tiles. The same for the remaining three clues.

 :red-meeple:: One of the Tiles is wrong.
 :blue-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct, but is oriented and positioned incorrectly.
 :black1-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct exact, oriented correctly, but in the wrong position.
 :yellow-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct, oriented incorrectly, but in the correct position.
 :green-meeple:: One of the Tile correct, oriented in an exact manner, in exact position.

You can use the images on this link or this to make your predictions, using this code: [ img ]image link[ /img] (remove the spaces before img and /img).

Important: We will not accept new predictions published before the 24 hours, the topic will be edited and the prediction canceled.

Example:

:red-meeple: :black1-meeple: :blue-meeple:  :green-meeple:

When the sequence it has been guessed, I will make public the password of zip archive, so that everyone can check the original sequence.

Participation in the competition is free, if you really want to do something for the community, you could donate one or two white tiles, they will be used to create awards for the community, tiles gift for tournaments or other initiatives like this one.

And now we come to the most important part, the prize for guessing the correct sequence.
You will receive directly to your home one of the following tiles of your choice:

Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The Festival"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The River I"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The Besiegers"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The Houses"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The School"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The Compass Rose"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - Halflings II"   
Mini-Expansion: "Carcassonne - The Cloister in Germany"   

Now what are you waiting? Take off the foolish predictions!!!

A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

 :white-meeple: My works.

We need a visual gallery list. Takes forever to find the right tile, even if you have a decent knowledge of the names. If I get some free time tonight/tomorrow I could make one based on the list already provided, if anyone else is not up for it.

Thank you very much Paul.

The tiles prediction must be positioned according to the normal rules of carcassonne to form a row of four tiles.

I'll knock something simple up - and allow the user to click to see the URL to copy; if they don't know they can right click.
