GenCan't SoloCon Competition 2016 - Digital/Physical
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:38:47 AM »
It's time for:

As I described in the ACCGSC-thread there are 2 contests being run in parallel from: NOW until Sunday 7th August 2016 23:59:59 SST.  No entries can be submitted after the deadline.

The Digital/Physical Contest

I'd recommend using JCloisterZone to set up your games, but you're welcome to play a physical game with real tiles and score tracks if you prefer.

This year's setup will include the following expansions/Options:
Please note, if you are playing a physical game:
  • If you are using the new art style, the River and Abbot expansions should be removed
  • You may use another coloured meeple to represent your Phantom, if you do not have a Phantom available.
  • There is a subtle difference in rules between the original and new editions.  Thus, abide to the rules of the edition you are using.  (Hint:  The New artwork edition has an advantage).

Contest Submissions
I should make clear, that contest submissions must include a screenshot from JCloisterzone, or other digital platform. 
Physical Submissions MUST include a clear photo showing the entire board and scoretrack at the end of the game but with follower on incomplete features in situ - this way we can check your maths :)

Prizes

For the 'Physical Only Solo Contest' there will be 4 prizes.  Again this will be different commemorative personalized tiles!

  • The 1st Scoring Player
  • A Random Spot Prize
  • A Random Spot Prize
  • A Random Spot Prize

The random prizes will be awarded as above.  Up to 5-chances per player, plus an extra for a tweet including:   #gencant  #carcsolocon @carcassonne  with their submission.

I want to contribute to that topic with the solocontest. It is weird to play like that but it spurs my ambition. ^-^

My current highscore is 551 pts, but this could be only the starting point for the competition. I made no proper plan for the farms layout in the end and didnt count tiles. Maybe I will do both for further tries ;) I guess 750 pts could be the maximum if everything works.

Thanks for taking the time to play Adrornalin!  It's a deceptive game with a lot of components to juggle!  But I think 551is a good initial benchmark!

Wolnic, dont forget a screenshot next time, but glad you had a chance to try it!

Come on people it's been more than 24 hours and no one else has submited any attempts!  There's not long left!  I hope members aren't keeping their attempts for the last minute. Remember you want 5 entries for maximum chance of a spot prize!

My best attempt without counting, annoying not to cross 600, but 593!

Still not sure about the 12 pt farmer in the cccc-tile, probably costs too much in lost meeple placement.

Amazing score!  You can add a width=400 parameter inside the img tag to resize it.

I like that last attempt with 562: two big cities with cathedrals and the rest is only 4pts-cities-wall.

Well done WhatIf, I really would like to see that screenshot but it doesnt show up unfortunately.


I think the highscore can go over 700, if nearly every tiny city is used two or three times by the farmers, if the cathedral cities are as big as possible without losing too many tiles for enough tiny cities, if the inn roads are as long as possible, and if you prepare the middle spot for all eight cloisters beforehand.
