Q17:
2017 was an especially busy year for postmen and postwomen around the world, especially for the ones delivering to those of us with rapidly growing Carcassonne collections! In one case, an order placed in March and including the 10th large expansion and Halflings (and perhaps also a keyboard and a mouse) took just 4 days to reach the UK. Whose postman went the extra mile (or 500!) to get this parcel to its happy owner so quickly? C:-) :(y)

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

Q18:
Decar ran a series of polls this year, with the end goal being to discover which non-Carcassonne games are universally enjoyed by Carcassonne fans. It wasn't easy, and with the initial list of nominations totalling 166 well-liked games, those of us who voted in the subsequent polls faced some very tough decisions! The eventual winner was 7 Wonders, followed by Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan and Pandemic. But which forum member nominated "The Game of 49" onto the initial list of games to be included?

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

Q19:
Back in May, a member of the community posted about their plans to play a game of Carcassonne including various editions of the basegame, 13 major expansions and 150 fan-made expansions (no cats were allowed). And after 31 days they were forced to stop as there was no space left to carry on! Who was this?

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

Q20:
Perhaps understandably, cats were not allowed anywhere near the game of Carcassonne (Catcassonne ;)) I asked about yesterday. But in some parts of the world, certain forums members go to incredible lengths for their cats! One forum member in particular posted back in January about a certain cat tower that had been under construction for 4 years! Which forum member was responsible for this fantastic achievement for their beloved pets?

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

Q21:
For those of us with *ALL* the Carcassonne but who still have a certain compulsion for buying boardgames, the KickStarter thread is always useful in terms of helping people to find new things on which to spend their money. But it's not just boardgames that get posted about here, as one member in particular was gracious enough to share their recommendation for the boardgaming bowl that everyone must have (bought from a certain Swedish furnitue/ homeware giant that was mentioned in a previous question). Who was this?

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

EDIT: I'll accept that I may have been a little ambiguous with this question. So, if you can't choose between two or more members, choose the one who first shared their recommendation...

(a slightly easier one today O:-))

Q22:
2017 wasn't a particularly busy year for most of us in terms of sharing details of what else we like to do in our free time, but a few people provided some insight. One of our number not only described what an "abhanga" is (for those of us who had been wondering), but also provided us with a sample of their poetry which included a liturgical prayer inspired by Donald Trump ::). Who was this?

Q23:
Every now and then, our Carcassonne-related discussions can occasionally wander off-track into somewhat unexpected territory. Fortunately however, MrNumbers is determined to keep things Carcassonne, and is always on hand to swoop in and split unrelated posts off into seperate threads when we least expect it! C:-) The resulting spin-off threads can seem a little random, but I always enjoy reading the hilarious topic names that they've been given! :)) One such thread started off as a discussion around the GQ#11 expansion and how it can be used to kill birds, with jungleboy cruelly suggesting that carrots should be sacrificed instead. :'( But who was it that shared a self-defence against fresh fruit video on the same thread?

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

See you tomorrow for the final question! ;)

Q24:
I've really enjoyed reading about everyone's different Christmas traditions and festive shenanigans this year, and was especially impressed by some of the Carcassonne-themed tree decorations! With this in mind, who likes to invade German Cathedrals with their little metal meeples?

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

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the quiz this year. I hope it's been fun and look forward to sharing the answers and results after Christmas. All that remains for me to say for now is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Much love and respect,
Dan :) :(y)

Mwrry Christmas Dan!

Thanks for taking all this time an expending all this energy in finding some of the most difficult questions we've had to date. And also making sure you poated every day.  It's been a great opportunity to reflect on the year's activites and also catch up on some missed ones!
