So this is my last attempt: 114 - 27 = 87.
This time I used only 2 reinforcements and I had to "waste" one of my meeples for a 2 pt road. On the other hand invaders could claim only two cloisters.
Thanks for this great challenge, Decar (and Steve).

It's almost 10pm in the Cook Islands, so that gives another 2 (and a bit) hours until Sunday!

Congrats, Leven!

Those late monasteries are a blessing. Hope you enjoyed as much as I did.  ;D

Cheers!

I like to make sure everyone has enough time to play regardless of timezone. Carcassonne Central is a global forum after all!

I don't know any Carcassonne fans from the Cook Islands, but I like to give them the opportunity.

Unfortunately, when I estimated the time earlier, I forgot about American Samoa this year, with -11 UTC.  That gives everyone another hour!

First attempt -
122 - 70 = 52

I am not sure if I have done it right to be honest.

But I will try again and see what happens.

My last attempt - seems OK I think

144 - 23 = 121

I had almost all the invaders on zero scoring fields and the invaders had 3 small cloisters.

An excellent score....but:

  • Any player meeple that remain on the board penalize the player -20 points; including player’s farmers.

So I count:
  • -15 for cloisters.
  • -8 for farms
  • -7 for your farmers (21 + 12 - 40)

For a total of -30.

Taking your score to: 114—Still amazing and you demonstrate that 120 is achievable!!

Congrats Rosco!

Just thinking of what might have been achieved if Rosco had a bigger table!  >:D

I hadn't realised that.  Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with the farmers and would have closed the cloisters!!! Bugger

Still a remarkable score, and not a moment before the deadline!

I guess it was -40 not -7 because you already scored the farms in your score?

Ouch!
