Originally:  144 - 23 = 121

Invaders scored:
-15 for cloisters
-6 and -2 for farms. 
That's the -23.

But you have 2 farmers that score -20 each, -40 :(
There net score was -7, I think you already included the 21 and 12 points in your 144.

Well that's crap!  I did struggle to understand the rules although only skim reading them probably didn't help

Snap! I didn't bother reading about the -20 for the farmers either. Though that I had done well and was really proud - until I read the rules!

Thanks to everyone who took part this year:

Here are the results:

Leven 87
Meepledrone 85
Rosco 81
TheSteveAllen 48?  --> Possibly
RichTheFish 14  :o --> From twitter

I think Rosco was incredibly unlucky missing a vital rule when scoring!  Those invaders are brutal!
Considering he won the solo variant for 2018, 2017, and 2016, it seems he was letting someone have a chance!

And that someone was Leven! Congratulations Leven! You're the new Solo variant champion.  O0

I'd best dig out some prizes!

I'll keep this tread open for any late contenders. Otherwise see you in 2020!

Well done to everyone who took the time to take part in this initiative this year, and huge thanks to Decar for coming up with yet another novel way to enjoy Carcassonne without opposition! A hugely deserved +1 merit from me. :) :(y)

I was sorry I didn't find time to sit down and give this a proper go, but I certainly intend to when (if) things calm down with my work/ home commitments.

Thank you for posting this variant!  I just tried it, outside of the competition, and it was a fun play!  But I am confused on how to do final scoring of farmers/fields.  Here is a picture with descriptions of my tile layout and followers left at the end of the game.  Can you tell me what my score would be?

Thanks!

Hi asequoyah, thanks for giving this a go, glad you enjoyed it.

I'll have a proper look tonight and explain the scoring again.
