- Danisthirty: (singing) The loooong and winding roaaaaad...that leaaaads...to your doooooor...
- Gingerbread Man: Didn't know you liked to sing.
- Danisthirty: Me neither... it's just the script  :o
- Gingerbread Man: Yep, last year I had to swim across the English Channel without getting soaked wet... It is always great to have a stuntman at hand.  8)
- Santa Claus: Ehem, ehem...
- Danisthirty: OK. Let's ge...
- Yellow Meeple: Hey! The views are awesome from up here  ;D
- Danisthirty: Er...Thank you... And now... Let's get to it.

Question #8: We all know Danisthirty is a sophisticated guy. So he put together this scenario for you so you can tell him how many points Red and Yellow will score after completing the road. Good luck!

- The Grinch: Mwahahahaha! You thought I've been procrastinating all this time... Just gnawing on tiles for fun!
- Fir Tree: (the moon shines through the branches) ...
- The Grinch: Well... YES!!!...  But I've also been scheming to drive all participants nuts with my first question...
- Fir Tree: (an owl hoots) ...
- The Grinch: Don't give me that look... It is my honor what is at stake here  >:D


Question #9: The Grinch also wants to test you... He doesn't like easy, so be ready for anything. How may points do Red and Yellow get at the end of this game?

- Santa Claus: I this one is going to be fun.
- Danisthirty: Are you sure?
- Gingerbread Man: I agree... Everyone loves castles.
- Danisthirty: If you say so... There was a lot of discussion about castle scoring in the forum this year...
- Santa Claus: Because they are fun.
- Danisthirty: OK. I give up.
- Gingerbread Man:I'm impatient to see what you prepared, Santa.
- Santa Claus: Check this out!


Question #12: If you love castles, this is the right time to prove it to Santa Claus. After completing the city, what will be the scoring for each player? Think carefully!

- Danisthirty: Well. Here we go again.
- The Grinch: And you supposed to post a challenge?
- Danisthirty: Yes. Any comments?
- The Grinch: Well, whatever question you post, it will be like a bit of cake.
- Danisthirty: We know for certain you are not good at assessments... of any kind.
- The Grinch: (mocking Danisthirty voice)... you are not good at assessments... blah blah blah... Nonsense.
- Danisthirty: OK. Let's compare how many participants are right today and in your next question. If I get more right answers than you, I win, otherwise you lose...
- The Grinch: OK, sounds fair.... We've got a deal...
- Danisthirty: Let's talk after your next question is available.  ;)
- The Grinch: Can't wait to see the results!!!  I bet I'll win!!!!


Question #13: Danisthirty is back with another challenge for you. He is completing a city with a watchtower. How many points are Red and Yellow scoring?

- Fir Tree: (whistling in the wind) ...
- The Grinch: (maniacal laugh) Mwahahaha!
- Fir Tree: (a scared squirrel drops a chestnut) ...  :o
- The Grinch: (moremaniacal laugh) Mwahahahahaha!
- Snowman: (mumbling) His inner devil is at large again.
- The Grinch: (almost shouting) Nobody will ever be able to tell me how many points will the red meeple score here...
- Snowman: (with a look of inference) Really?... I would say zero.
- The Grinch: (with an evil look) How can you be so sur....? For the large meeple's sake! Whaattt? ...
- Snowman: Aha!...
- The Grinch: (almost hissing) How could I forget Red Meeple asked me to take the day off?  :o
- Fir Tree: (a twig falls) ...  >:D
- The Grinch: (with a threatening look) Another joke and you will suffer the consequences!!!
- Snowman: This is asking for it... Selfieeeee!!!  ;D ;D ;D


Question #14: If you thought the Grinch was satisfied with his previous visit, you are completely wrong. Can you tell him what is the scoring for the road he just completed?

- Danisthirty: Yesterday it was intense, right?
- Gingerbread Man: Yes... I'm in zen mode today, so anyone can join me with today's bucolic question. How's your bet going on?
- Danisthirty: I'm very confident I'll win but I don't want to jump into conclusions so soon.
- Gingerbread Man: I see.
- The Grinch: (approaching) I told you I always deliver...  >:D
- Danisthirty: (mocking the Grinch's high-pitched voice) ..and there is nothing like a participant's brain melting...
- The Grinch: Will you stop stealing my lines?  :(
- Danisthirty:Whatever... and I haven't forgotten. The game is one and I think I'm winning...  >:D
- The Grinch: No way... you obnoxious meeple.  >:(
- Gingerbread Man: Not a word!... You are behave like mini meeples!
- The Grinch: (pointing with his arm) He started...  :-[
- Danisthirty: ... :-X
- Gingerbread Man: OK, that's much better... Ahem, ahem!... Where was I...?


Question #15: The Gingerbread Man comes to the rescue with an easy one after the Grinch, right? He hopes you already recovered from yesterday's question.

So we have this nice completed road. Can help the Gingerbread Man with the scoring?

Earlier this afternoon...

- Blue Mini Meeple: Hi  Mr. Santa, we are just playing?
- Fir Tree: (a bird chirps) ...
- Red Mini Meeple: OK, Ok... We were just passing the time... It is taking so long to know the winner of the quiz...  :-\
- Blue Mini Meeple: Can you tell us who is winning so far?
- Santa Claus: Don't be so impatient... You will know the winner personally in due time.
- Blue Mini Meeple: But you would need the address of all the participants, right?
- Fir Tree: (a twig cracks) ...  :-\
- Santa Claus: Certainly... Ahem! Ahem! Right away...



Important message to the participants

- Santa Claus: If you are participating, please send Meepledrone a PM with your full address so he can post the prize to the winner and a small something to the rest of the participants.
- Fir Tree: (a gentle breeze passes) ...
- Santa Claus: It wasn't the difficult, you see?
- Meepledrone: (form afar) I heard you... You are keeping me really busy here  >:(
- Santa Claus: Did you hear anything?
- Fir Tree: (a worm crawls) ...   ;)
- Santa Claus: (to himself) Always complaining...  ::)



- Blue Mini Meeple: So, Mr. Santa, may I claim road?
- Santa Claus: Nope!
- Blue Mini Meeple: What about a monastery?
- Santa Claus: Nope! Get you all back to the box! It's getting late...
- Blue Mini Meeples & Red Mini Meeples: (all together) Ohhhhh!  :-\
- Blue Mini Meeples: That's not fair...  :-[
- Santa Claus: Tell that to Mr. Grinch. Look! He's approaching...
- Blue Mini Meeples: Guys, we'd better get going...  :o

- Snowman: To place or not to place... that is the abbey dilemma!
- Santa Claus: You look pensive tonight...
- Snowman: (continues) It just the stare of the moon... O suspended icicle! O mirror in the sky!
- Santa Claus: (to himself) Anyway, he will be back to normal when he is -20ºC again. He should avoid those spicy tokens for dinner...


Question #16: The Snowman challenges you with a new scenario. Just for fun, he has placed an abbey tile to fill the hole in the city. How many points does each player score?

- Santa Claus: Why C1 abbots love to practice yoga?
- Yellow Meeple: Well, you tell me. I'm just a regular meeple. Maybe C2 abbots playing C1 abbots can tell you why.
- Santa Claus: ... :o
- Yellow Meeple: When this game is finished I will have a long chat with Hans-im-Glück.
- The Grinch: Can we besiege their HQ?
- Santa Claus: Yep, and don't forget to take some Cathars with you...
- The Grinch: Of course, who do you thing you are talking to?
- Yellow Meeple:(whispering to Santa)  He'll never learn, right?
- Santa Claus: ::)


Question #17: Santa Claus needs your help to evaluate this German monastery with a C1 abbot. How many points would Yellow score at the end of the game?

- Danisthirty: Today is my turn! BTW, congrats @Meepledrone for your 900th post.
- Meepledrone: Thanks, I'm working on it!  8)
- Decar: Oooohhhh! I see a lot of my "favourite" things...
- Danisthirty: ...  :o
- Decar: I know you are biting your tongue. Not a word about The Sound of Music...  :(
- Danisthirty: My lips are sealed...  :-X
- Decar: ...  >:(
- Danisthirty: I didn't ask for it.
- Decar: ...  >:(
- Danisthirty: Are you Julie Andrews?
- Decar: ...  >:(
- Danisthirty: Don't look like her...
- Decar: ...  >:(
- Danisthirty: Don't look at me with that grumpy meeple face.  >:D
- Decar: I hope you know the answer to today's question at least.
- Danisthirty: Er...  ??? ...


Question #18: Danisthirty also wanted to pay homage to his dear friend Decar, the author of countless sketches of scenarios with German castles, Halflings and barns, all of them tagged with a recurring question: "How many farms...?

http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=2649.0

So here you are Yellow's barn placed on the intersection of two Halflings and the long side of a German castle. Danisthirty needs your help to score this barn, the field occupied by Blue and the meeples in the City of Leipzig. Will you let him down?
