Congratulations to Vital Pluymers, the other participants, and to meepledrone for running this so efficiently.

I must admit if I'd taken a little more care, and looked more carefully at the actual tiles and figures in the images, before submitting my answers, I might have got a few more correct - I now see I missed a couple of halfling tiles filling a whole tile space, and know I nearly missed a hill and besiegers tile early on. According to my notes I thought I'd got the last question scored correctly, but maybe just added the numbers up wrongly!

Actually, I'm pleased with 5th, as I don't actually play with most of the expansions included in the questions! The wiki helped quite a bit, though!

Were there any common misconceptions about the scoring in any of the questions, meepledrone?

Congratulations to the winner, it's a truly remarkable score.
Congratulations to Meepledrone for the hard work they did to entertain and amuse us for the holiday season.
Congratulations to all the participants who animated this quiz and made this competition come alive.
As for my own ridiculous result, it can only improve, and as a certain de Coubertin used to say "the main thing is to participate".

Question #24: The Grinch completed the German castle with a circus space tile. So, in this case, you will have to score not only the German castle but also the big top. The token under the big top shows the number 4. The acrobats also want to be scored so the show is over after this.

How many points does each player score?





Answer #24:
* Yellow scores 32 points
* Red scores 10 points
* Blue scores 4 points

Here is an explanation of the various layers of scoring taking place in this scenario:

1. Scoring the German castle:

* Yellow scores 15 points (12 points for the German castle + 3 points for the fairy)

2. Scoring the Ringmaster points

* Yellow scores 8 points (3 adjacent circus tiles x 2 points + 1 adjacent acrobat space x 2 points)

3. Scoring the acrobats

* Red gets 5 points per acrobat (a normal meeple and a phantom), that is 10 points (2 meeples x 5 points)
* Yellow gets 5 points per acrobat (a phantom in this case), that is 5 points (1 meeple x 2 points.)
 
4. Scoring the big top

* Yellow's ringmaster and Blue's farmer get 4 points each for the big top. Note that other figures in adjacent tiles cannot get points for the big top: the witch, the fairy, or Blue's pig are not followers so they are not elegible for the big top scoring.

The bottomline:
* Yellow scores 32 points (15 points for the German castle and the fairy + 8 for the ringmaster bonus + 5 for the acrobat + 4 for the big top.)
* Red scores 10 points for the acrobats.
* Blue scores 4 points for the big top

Note: This scenario cannot happen at the end of the game as the Big Top has to move to the a new location with a new animal token underneath. If that tile is the last one in the game, the Big Top should be scored before the field with the blue farmer and the blue pig is scored.
Maybe you shouldn't say the last sentence 'The show is over after this' because the score doesn't reflect It.... If it's not over, then it's a little cheater don't you think?

The show would be over for the acrobats: you score them and remove them. It was just a literary license so to speak. The game cannot be finished as the big top has to be moved to the newly placed tile... before the game ends with the final big top scoring before the scoring after the end takes place.

In any case, that's why I didn't take into account any references to the scoring of the blue farmer and the blue pig.

If you are asking about only the picture the scoring would be the same (including farming)... The next movement of the Big top it's another thing...
The expresion I still thinking that is confusing

Question #23: Danisthirty wanted to confer with the Yellow archbishop before Christmas, so here we are. By placing this last tile, the German cathedral will be completed. He wants to test you so please tell him the scoring for Yellow as soon as possible. Will you?





Answer #23: Yellow scores 26 points

The road network connected to the German cathedral contains a roundabout and several tunnels that connect the three road segments on the German cathedral. Analyzing the road network, we have to take into account the following elements:
- 7 road tiles
- 3 tunnel tiles that are considered only once for the road network
- 3 road segments on the German Cathedral counted independently
- 1 inn, so each tile and road segment on the German cathedral gets 2 points

So Yellow will score 26 points (10 tiles x 2 points + 3 road segments x 2 points)

I don't think that this is correct.
Roads leading to a German Cathedral and its road segments are worth three points each when there is an inn next to the road.
So total score should be 39 points.

Really happy that I did well. I never even considered winning this quiz with so many experts on this forum. So, yes, I am a little proud!  8)

A big thank you to Meepledrone and his Council for all the work that's been put in!

No. Only 2 points for tile (see WICA).
