Question #7:

:red-meeple: placed the tile highlighted in red. How many points do :red-meeple: and :yellow-meeple: score?



Answer #7:

As soon as :red-meeple: placed the tile, the :yellow-meeple: meeple is connected to the road with the Solovei Razboynik's tree. As a result, the :yellow-meeple: meeple is trapped and moves automatically to the Solovei Razboynik tile. The completed road is now empty but it triggers the scoring of the castle occupied by the :red-meeple: meeple.

So, the :red-meeple: in the castle scores 5 points for the completed road (5 tiles x 1 point per tile), since the the Solovei Razboynik's tree does not interrupt the road.

So the bottomline is:
* :red-meeple: scores 5 points for the castle
* :yellow-meeple: scores no points and their meeple is trapped by Solovei Razboynik

You can check the Solovei Razboynik rules and the latest clarifications by Hobby World (the Russian publisher) here:

Question #8:

:red-meeple: and :yellow-meeple: share this road network. How many points do they score with the advanced labyrinth rules?




Answer #8:

:red-meeple: and :yellow-meeple: share the majority in the road network but the :yellow-meeple: on the bridge breaks that tie in :yellow-meeple:'s favor thanks to the hill under the bridge. So :yellow-meeple: has the majority in the end.

The road network contains 9 tiles:
* 5 square tiles
* 4 Halflings
Note the bridge placed across two Halfling tiles will have to be treated as two road segments matching the tiles underneath. When scoring a road, you consider the number of tiles making up the road. In this case, there would be a conflict between the two Halfling tiles (two tiles) and the bridge across (usually one tile), but the number of tiles involved dictates the outcome.

As a consequence, :yellow-meeple: scores 17 points for the road network:
* 9 points for the road (9 tiles x 1 point / tile) 
* 8 additional points for the meeples on the road network including the labyrinth (4 meeples x 2 points / meeple) as per the advanced Labyrinth rules.

So the bottomline is:
* :red-meeple: scores no points
* :yellow-meeple: scores 17 points for the road network with advanced labyrinth rules

What?
Hill was hidden there, ahh. I have C1 version and I'm not familiar with C2 design of this Hill expansion ;-(

Well it's just again one of undiscovered rules terytory - bridge on tile/tiles in this case with Hill. Nice ;-)

Hmm, after this quizz, I have to once again to learn rules  ;-(

Nice job @Meepledrone, merit for me

Thanks Bumsakalaka!

I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz...

I tried to push the boundaries a bit in some cases with some interactions not well covered in the basic rules. WICA is useful to help you in those areas.

Cheers!
