Solo Mega-Carc on JCZ, anyone else?
« on: May 01, 2017, 04:53:39 AM »
So I tried to play a solo mega carc on JCZ with everything, except little buildings as I can´t seem to make it work. I am sure I am not the only one wasting an hour like this, and as I couldn´t find a thread on this I will let this be the unofficial record thread for mega solo carc, ok?

I start with my first attempt, 5005 points! Show what you´ve got!

Maybe I shouldn´t buy kathars, what would I do next?

Oh my... It's really hard to avoid unintentionally placement of a bridge.
I understand I'm asking a lot, but is it possible for the program to ask for confirmation when a bridge is needed, just like "confirm meeple deployment on a farm".

Hello there, What If?

Challenge accepted!  Yesterday, I had a go myself.  The only thing I couldn't find, is to place those "little buildings expansion".
Anyway, I got myself 5399 points in the end.

So, it's your turn again...  :blue-meeple:

I find this frustrating too. I would prefer a step further than this and request a different colour shading in JCZ where tiles that can be placed only with a bridge compared with regular, non-bridge placements.

Great post What If?+1 merit from me.

I've not tried it with all the expansions, although I did once make 4 AI players play each other with all of the expansions they can do. This is nothing compared to Decar's 10k tile game though...

Looking forward to seeing how the scores grow with time! Did you take advantage of the Wind Roses bug at all?

I believe jungleboy means a different gray box beside the existing tiles, not a different green colour in the tiles.

Is it a bug? I thought it was a feature  ;)

I can´t make them function either.

I don´t think I´ll play one again soon, but getting those 120p farmers was quite nice of course.

edit: I of course keep the basic cloisters in the game!

Interesting, interesting. So you sat at home and thought: "What if - I play a solo mega carc?!"  ;)

Maybe I will give it a try too. Placing a farmer on the barn field every second turn in the lat game?

Yes, they are nice if you can pop 200p a farmer+pig!
