- Gingerbread Man: Here we go with the first question...
- The Grinch: Finally! I thought it will never happen.
- Gingerbread Man: How so?
- The Grinch: You would not understand...
- Fir Tree: (the wind blows shaking the leaves)  ;)
- The Grinch: Don't call me names... I like it too much...
- Fir Tree: (a twig cracks) ^-^
- The Grinch: What? What do you care? :o
- Gingerbread Man: You shouldn't treat Meepledrone like that...
- The Grinch: You too?
- The Grinch: That is what minions are for!
- Gingerbread Man: One day you will really need his help and he will not be there for you...
- The Grinch: That will never happen... I will sell him in parts on eBay first! >:D
- Gingerbread Man: :o



Question #1: The Gingerbread Man wants you to help him score this end-game scenario. How many points will each player score?

In this case, both players must score the same points for the castles:



This is clear in the rules.

This is not the case for all neigboring castles, like in the case below, where Yellow can choose to score for one of the roads or Blue's castle, but Blue can only choose one of the roads. In this case, each castle can score independently, since there is no mutual dependency .

Carcassonne, Sacred Scoreboard Gardens by the walls... (at the same time)



- The Grinch: And well! Anything to say?

- The Grinch: (interrupting) Not a chance... (to Meepledrone) You are trying to fool me again! :(
- Snowman: What are you say...?
- The Grinch: (interrupting) Will you let me speak? Stop interrupting me!!! >:(
- Snowman:o
- The Grinch: Decar, drag this insolent meeple for three laps at full gallop around the city.
- Decar: But if he...
- The Grinch: (interrupting again) But before that, let us here from his robotic mouth the rules of the Advent Quiz once more...
- Meepledrone: O grandious sire! This is a modest excerpt as I'm impatient to receive my undeserved punishment...   
- The Grinch: That's more like it!!! Maybe we can reeducate you in a proper way!

:red-meeple: Between the 1st and 24th December I will post a small Carcassonne scoring question each day (at a random time), to which the answer will be points scored by one or more players according to the question. Each question will be presented by a member of the Meeple Council, who will indicate the number of expansions but will not participate as a meeple in the scenario itself. Check the number of the space each of them occupy on the scoreboard above:
- Gingerbread Man     1 expansion
- Snowman2 expansions
- Santa Claus3 expansions
- Danisthirty4 expansions
- The Grinch5 expansions (or more, of course :o)

:yellow-meeple: When you know the answer, don't post it on this thread! :-X Because then everyone will know, and we don't want that. Instead, send Meepledrone a PM including the question number and your answer for that day. He won't respond to your PM (please don't be offended), but if you get the answer correct you will win one or more quiz points depending on how many others have answered it correctly before you:
- 1st correct answer5 points
- 2nd correct answer4 points
- 3rd correct answer3 points
- 4th correct answer2 points
- All subsequent correct answers   1 point

:green-meeple: There's no cut-off date for any particular questions so don't despair if you miss any. You can even answer all 24 questions on Christmas eve if you want, but don't expect to score big overall...

:blue-meeple: Once Christmas and Boxing Day are behind us, the correct answers will be posted – one at a time – along with who won the big points (or indeed any points) and total scores per participant. This is where it gets really fun! :o :(y)

:black-meeple: The overall winner will be the person with the most points at the end of the quiz, but there is likely to be a small prize for everyone who answers all questions regardless of whether they manage to answer any of them correctly. It will be a surprise. O:-)

Any questions, please ask now. Otherwise, you can expect question 1 of 24 sometime on December 1st! O0

If they are mutually dependent, they score the same points as indicated in the rules:

Quote
* Two or more incomplete castles may be standing next to each other. If one of them scores points, it will be considered as a completed feature for the adjacent castles. All the castle owners receive the same number of points.

Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / Carcassonne Central: Advent Quiz MMXXII
« on: November 29, 2022, 11:09:03 AM »
Hi all,

For those unaware of what it is really going on, I will just break it for you: Christmas is coming!!! Again... So does Winter... at least in the Northern Hemisphere!

In preparation of the coming events, here at Carcassonne Central, a lot is happening behind the scenes again. The Meeple Council is in session discussing whether phantoms should be allowed to be reinstated as acrobats...

This is just a smoke screen, because the real agenda for today is...

The Advent Calendar Quiz MMXXII

Stay tuned, because on December 1st you have a date... Ahem... a date with FATE DESTINY 'S CHILD!

Ready or not, the clock is ticking!

Bear in mind it took more than 6 months to get good source material to extract the tile images. The PDF files were very low res...

I could finish the C3 tile distributions in mid-September, so we are a few months behind only... ;)

Yep. This is in my to-do list...

Additionally, we have to review all the lists enumerating meeples to consider guard meeples.

Regarding the Ukraine Promo, we are assuming that it does not activate the logic associated with inns and crop circles by itself, so we only consider its special features when playing with the corresponding expansions (the same as the inns in River II or Exp. 8, or the crop circle in Halflings, for example).

Two players may not choose the points they would want to score that freely if their castles must score the same points if their owners are not interested in scoring the same number of points (when they have multiple options to choose from).
