Congratulations Vital Pluymers, correct answers winner!  :(y)

Thank you! Happy I got a decent result after all! ????
Still a pity that I made that one stupid mistake. It was not that I didn't know the correct rules, just stupid ????

Congrats Vital Plymers!

Don't be so hard on yourself! Your knowledge of the rules and their intricacies is remarkable.

Thank you so much for participating. I imagine your timing was tighter than last year too.

Have fun and a Happy New Year!

Congratulations to corinthiens13, that is a really great result! You were very quick all of the time and have a fantastic knowledge of the rules!
+ 1 merit from me!
????

The competition was a tough one this year, the level of experience has increased tremendously ????

Thanks, Vital Pluymers!

While posting the responses, I was wondering if any of you would end up hating the game...  :o

I can tell you it's been thrilling and exciting even behind the scenes.

@Meepledrone,
Would it be possible to post also the ranking with just the number of the  correct answers, in other words pretending that the reaction times would not matter. Just wondering if I would be able to keep up with all these great competitors knowledge wise  ;)

ranking sorry Meepledrone if I check the list
vital pluymers 23 correct
corinthien13 and carcassone93 correct 21

Thanks for the stats, davide!  I got the same result just by assigning 1 point to each correct response.

Here you are the results considering only the main questions (same result as davide) and a second version considering also the extra questions from Day 24... just for fun!

Do you know the wikicarpedia website or WICA?
Perhaps you could make a topic. with tutorials on how to combine expansions etc ... What do you think Meepledrone?

OK!

For the barn, I don't if you have seen this summary available on WICA:
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Abbey_and_the_Mayor#Scoring_summary

You can check this page on Little Buildings as well:
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Little_Buildings_(1st_edition)

But if you want to see how everything fits together, you can check this page about scoring during the game and after the game (you can select what expansions you want to combine):
* During de game:
   - Full detail: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Scoring_During_Turn_Sequence
   - Summary: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Scoring_During_the_Game
* After the game:
   - Summary: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Scoring_After_the_Game

Let me know if this helps  ;)

If on the other hand, you are interested in the sequence of actions, you can check the following (you can select what expansions you want to combine):
- Global structure of a game: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Game_Reference
  - It has sections on game setup sequence and final scoring sequence 
- Turn sequence during the game: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Order_of_Play

Some ideas for Mega Carcassonne games too: https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Mega-Carcassonne

I'm always open to suggestions for new contents for WICA. What is the angle you suggest: Sequence of actions, scoring...?

Well done Meepledrone.

Sorry I couldn't take part. I was hoping to sit down a few days after Xmas before New Year and give these a go.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it before the answers started coming out....

I'm guessing it's too late to submit answers now.

Thanks, Vital Pluymers!

Not me, I like it all the way.
I liked that there was a lot of variation in the questions, that most of the expansions got their moment of fame and that I always had to look very carefully for the snag in the grass  :D

For me personally, winning the quiz is not my objective as I cannot cope with the time element anyway. But I am always interested in applying the correct rules (also when playing one of my 350 other board games  >:D ). Therefore I really appreciate the challenges you gave us to test our knowledge of the game rules and the interaction between all the different features of the expansions.

Some people may think that all these expansions are not necessary and take away the original spirit of the base game. But on the other hand, without them, how would so many people ever stay so active on a forum sharing their thoughts about just one particular board game? ;D

Yes, well done Meepledrone! Apart from my participation the first day, I too was hoping to quickly catch up after Advent was over, but alas, it wasn't meant to be! I've really enjoyed both the puzzles you created and the whimsy with the story that went along with it-- bravo!  :))

Thank you very much also from me for the game which, besides the fun, allows a thorough study of the rules.
For WICA I suggest to insert a reference to the score of the castles connected to the German cathedrals (Q4)
Happy New Year

Question #15: The Yellow Messenger landed on a dark space. As a result, Yellow receives the message shown by
The Grinch. How many points does Yellow score for this message when applied to this feature?





Answer #15: after receiving this message, Yellow will have to score the city as if after the game and remove the meeple.

Yellow will the score 5 points for the city:
- The city itself is worth 0 points ( 5 tiles x 0 points for the cathedral)
- The Mage bonus is 5 points ( 5 tiles x 1 point per tile for the mage )

Yellow will also receive 3 points for the fairy next to their meeple.

Notes:
* The German castle bonus is not applicable during final scoring.
* The Mage bonus is applied during the game and after the game for incomplete features, even if the incomplete feature scores 0 points due to an inn or a cathedral, like in this case. The Mage bonus is applied after the inn or cathedral.

Bottomline:
- Yellow scores 8 points in two scoring events (5 points for the city with the mage + 3 points for the fairy)

Final note: Yellow could also renounce to score any points for the feature and receive 2 points for the message instead. However this case is not the answer expected for this question.

The mage remains on the tile?
