Farm scoring error
« on: December 24, 2015, 06:33:26 AM »
Two photos attached, can't work out how they've scored as they have - think it's a bug, but might be wrong.

Farm 1: 9 points, for only two cities, no siege, no pigs, so should be 6?

Farm 2: 9 points, two cities, one seiged (so 5) plus one normal for 3 so should be 8?

I still would've won the game, though it would've been 493 : 494 instead of 493 : 502  ;D (Xmas eve at the office time killer...)

Farm 1: This looks like a bug. My guess is that it's because of the abbey. The abbey splits the large city into two, but these two cities join up elsewhere. Maybe it is somehow still being scored as two separate cities.

Farm 2: The besieged city scores double for farming, so it's 6 points, not 5 - so this one is correct. From the CAR (p.123):

The farmers supply provisions to both the besiegers and the besieged. As such, every farm scores double points for each completed besieged city on that farm – 6 points for a normal farm, or 8 points for a farm with a pig.

1 contains a besieged city too , the top left cut-off tile.

As it scores double, that's 6  + 3 for the 2nd city = 9.

Well spotted! I don't think I could have reasonably been expected to see that :P
