Scoring quiz with roads
« on: August 09, 2019, 02:18:40 AM »
Hi all,

Here's a little quiz for a relaxing moment in the busy summer.

During a game of mega Carcassonne combining expansions from the new edition plus a little something of the classic one, the red player has just finished a road and it's time to score. He really needs your help because the road has a bit of everything including the witch...

How many points should Red score?

After counting, I get 14 points.
If it is not correct, it would be the problem with the small buildings or the Markets of Liepzig.

Hi Windekind,

Can you provide more detail on how you got that result? Thank you!

Cheers!

The road is 5 tiles long = 5 points
The inn + German cathedral: 3 points/tile (5x3) = 15 points

German castle = +3 = 18 points
Small buildings: 1 point/building: 2 buildings: +2 = 20 points
Watchtower: +2 = 22 points
Markets of Liepzig: +1 bonus points/road: +5 = 27 points

Witch: points are halved = 14 points

Hint: It it important to bear in mind two things:
1. How many scoring events there are
2. The order of evaluation

That's why they call her the Wicked Witch of the West.... of Carcassonne!

My try ????

1. Watchtowers:  2 tiles = 2 points

2. Road: [5 tiles + 5 (Inn) + 6 (German Cathedral) + 5 (Markets of Leipzig)] / 2 (Witch) = 11 points

3. Bonus Little Buildings on road: +2 points
     Bonus German Castle for road: +3 points

So, I would score it 18 points.

1. Watchtowers:  2 tiles = 2 points

2. Road: [5(segment) + 5 (Inn) + 5 (German Cathedral) ] / 2 (Witch) +3 points(German Castle)+2 points(Little Houses)= 13 points

3. Follower bonus:+5(Markets of Leipzig)

So, I would score it 20 points.

CAR7.4-Page155
The points from the little buildings are still considered part of the score for the primary
feature, just added after other modifications (such as inn/cathedral and mage/witch). Points from the
little buildings are not a separate scoring event for the purposes of Robbers, Messages, and the
Teacher. (10/2014)

I am on holiday so do not have rules to hand. I have the 2 points from the watchtower as a first scoring event. The meeple on the road as the second scoring event. 5 tiles doubled for the Inn, guessing plus five for the cathedral and again for the market plus 2 for houses and plus 3 for the German Castle. That is 25 which is halved by the witch to 13.
2+13=15.

Watchtower is scored first; it counts road tiles in the 3x3 grid its on: 2 points.
(the witch and little house do nothing since no road is scored yet)

Then the road is scored.
Because of the Inn, Cathedral connection and meeple on Wainwrights quarter of Leipzig it is worth 4 points per road tile.
5 road tiles x 4 points = 20.
Then the Witch modifier is applied to the core road scoring, halving it (rounded up) results in 10.
Then bonus points are applied. 3 for the Castle connection and 1 for each of 2 little houses makes 5.
Total road score = 15.

Total score for red = 17.
