Q23:
In April, this forum member posted photos of a very cool game of Carcassonne he'd played with his wife that consisted entirely of unofficial tiles (not even the base game!) His challenge to us was to identify all 12 of the expansions they used, although it looks as though 5 were left unidentified. What was his name?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

Only one question left... ;)
Heroically snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 2018

Final question!

Q24:
In October, totor66 started a new thread where he suggested a new version of the CAR document for the new artwork edition of Carcassonne. There was much debate about this, and one of the comments suggested that there ought to be an Autumn edition of Carcassonne to go with the Summer, Spring (Carc 2.0) and Winter editions. What is the name of the forum member who went on to create this?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

That's all folks! I hope everyone who took part enjoyed the quiz and the recap of 2016 that I attempted to provide through the questions I posed. You have until 5am tomorrow morning (UK time) to make sure you've answered all questions and I'll be doing a recap of the correct answers over the following week so stay tuned for that.

All that remains is for me to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. As always, it's been a pleasure sharing my passion for my favourite game with all of you over this last year and I couldn't wish for a greater bunch of boardgame fanatics to share it with! Thanks everyone for everything you've contributed throughout 2016; I'm already looking forward to 2017 and seeing what fun and games HiG has in store for all of us!

Thank you danisthirty, the Advent Quiz was a great idea and it was fun to search through the forums.

Do we get the result posted? Also all answers to the questions?

Thanks for the comments and feedback everyone. Glad you all enjoyed it.

The results and correct answers will come to the forums in the week between Christmas and new year. Mostly on 28th December I expect as this is when I will be at work with not much to do...

I'm off all week. If you would finish your Dungeon Strike app we could get a game in. ;D

Hello everyone, I hope you're all enjoying your Christmas breaks.

Things are only just beginning to calm down in our house now so I thought I'd snatch a few moments to start going over the answers to the quiz. Expect a gentle trickle of these throughout the week as I don't know how much time I'm going to get to sit down in front of a computer, but I'll do my best! ;)

So, I kicked things off with a very easy one. News of Paul's 10,007 tile game was pretty much impossible to avoid back in March so it's no surprise that everyone got this. But just to be clear, the answer was: Paul (link).

Everyone got this right, but who got there first? Let's find out based on the points awarded below:

kettlefish: 3
ny1050220: 2
Leven: 1
Ratz65: 1
MrNumbers: 1
laguse: 1
Halfling: 1
dirk2112: 1
JoeSesquipedalian: 1
Rosco: 1
Ry4Christ: 1
Decar: 1
stalcupojoy: 1
Jéré: 1

Congratulations kettlefish on her early lead! And well done to everyone else who got it right... :(y)

Question 2 proved to be a little tricker than I'd anticipated and of the 12 answers I received, 3 of them were incorrect :(

Competition was fierce, but which forum member was the first to respond to the digital/ physical contest?[/tt]

Decar ran two competitions simultaneously, there was a digital/ physical contest and a physical only contest. I was indeed the first to respond to the physical only contest, but the answer I was looking for was Adrornalin as he was the first to respond in the digital/ physical contest (link).

And so, on to the points awarded:

Decar: 3
MrNumbers: 2
kettlefish: 1
ny1050220: 1
Leven: 1
laguse: 1
Ry4Christ: 1
stalcupojoy: 1
Jéré: 1
Halfling: 0
dirk2112: 0
Rosco: 0

Overall Scores (after 2 questions)
1st= Decar: 4
1st= kettlefish: 4
3rd= MrNumbers: 3
3rd= ny1050220: 3
5th= Leven: 2

Question 3 was about the framed Carcassonne landscape I presented to KJW on behalf of the community and was straight forward enough for almost everyone to get

The most obvious way of finding the answer was to jump straight to the photo I posted of the finished frame, and look for the tile I asked about (the tile in question was fairly unique and so shouldn't have been too tricky to find [top left ;)]). However, there was also this post. Whichever way you found the answer, the forum member in question was clearly Valheru.

Question 4 was about the South Seas prototype tiles that we held an auction for back in June. I asked who won the only tile with more than 3 distinct features. The only tile with more than 3 distinct features was tile 16 (the crrr which features one city, three roads and three distinct fishing areas). This tile was won for 50 Euros by: JT Atomico (link).

Q5 was about the new Russian promo tiles that were spotted for the first time back in August. MrNumbers was lucky enough to get hold of a couple of sets from the reigning Carcassonne world champion, but my question related to who was behind an attempt to make a bulk purchase of various Russian Carcassonne items including these sets directly from Hobby World, on behalf of CarcC and CarcF. This forum member was: BigBoss (link).
