Castle scoring with a witch in that adjacent city question.
« on: April 19, 2014, 03:36:07 PM »
If a city with a Witch is completed, do the Castles nearby get the same points or does it score as if it was no Witch in it?
  Or, if I interpret the full score mentioned in CAR 6.4, as both gets no Witch penalty?

CAR 6.4: The occupier of the structure and the occupier of the castle both receive the full score for the structure. Then the follower from the castle is returned to the player

The use of the word "full" there is descriptive, not quantitative. It indicates that the players do not split the score but rather they receive the full points that are available for the feature. In the case of the Witch the points available for the feature is half what it would be, so each player receives the full half score.

The language is the same for a tie for ownership. Each player in a tie receives the full points for the feature, with no split. But they only score the full points that are available.
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!
