- Santa Claus: Hey guys! How is your bet going on?
- Danisthirty: You know I won right?
- The Grinch: That's impossible. My two questions were really tricky. I'm soon proud!  >:D
- Danisthirty: It doesn't matter... Everything is smoke and mirrors?
- The Grinch:Why do you say that?  :(
- Gingerbread Man: Can't you see? He tricked you... He wins no matter the result...
- The Grinch: (recalling the conversation) ...  :o

Quote
- Danisthirty: OK. Let's compare how many participants are right today and in your next question. If I get more right answers than you, I win, otherwise you lose...
- The Grinch: OK, sounds fair.... We've got a deal...

- Santa Claus: Ho Ho ho!!!...
- Danisthirty: I tricked the trickster ;D
- The Grinch: ...  >:(
- Danisthirty: Don't be mad at me...
- The Grinch: (looking away) ...  >:(
- Santa Claus: (continues) Ho Ho ho!!!
- Gingerbread Man: Whatever!... Let's get back to our business...



Question #20: The Gingerbread Man comes back with a new question. How many points will Blue score after completing the monastery? Don't panic! In case of doubt, he wants you to use the basic rules for Little Buildings.

- Snowman: Hello? Anyone there?
- Fir Tree: (with a sleepy voice) I am Groot...
- Snowman: No problem, I needed someone with arms...
- Fir Tree: (displeased) I AM GROOT...  :(
- Snowman: That is no discrimination... and you will have your lot during Christmas
- Fir Tree: (evoking happiness) I am Groot.  ;D
- Snowman: You are right... I will reveal my question right now and we can grab an eggnog.


Question #21: The Snowman wants you to lean back and relax. Watchtowers and wooden bridges are no mystery to you by now. How many points do Red and Yellow score?

- Santa Claus: Who doesn't like a nice German castle of a pointy Halfling?
- Decar: ME!!!
- Danisthirty: (whispering to Decar) I think it was a rhetoric question...
- Decar: (whispering back) I don't care... They have hideous rules to begin with, so they spoil such fancy designs...
- Santa Claus: Ahem! Ahem! It was a rhetoric question....
- Danisthirty and Decar: (At the same time) Yes, we know it!
- Santa Claus: Good! Then?
- Decar: Then what?... I just wanted to share my dislike for them. That's all!
- Santa Claus: What about you, Danisthirty?
- Danisthirty: I don't care about expansions as I used to...
- Decar: What do you think of that?
- Santa Claus: That's a good starting point... Well, guys, our Carcassonne therapy session is over...
- Meepledrone:(in a low voice) Now I understand...  :o
- Santa Claus: I have an important announcement to make!



Important message to the participants

- Santa Claus: Remember that our last quiz question will be on December 24th.
- Meepledrone: Yep! Don't forget to participate or even catch up that day the latest...
- Participants: (faint whistling here and there) ...  :o
- Danisthirty: Why do they always do that?
- Meepledrone: What's that?
- Danisthirty: Play dead when you address them...
- Santa Claus: Let's see if today's question cheers them up...
- Participants: (faint voices by PM) h...u...r...r...a...y!


Question #22: Believe or not, by adding a tile, Santa Claus has completed this German castle. Halflings are a bit messy so please help him with the scoring. How many points will get Red with the new rules for Halflings?

- Danisthirty: Hello, anyone there?
- Fir Tree: (ironic) I am Groot!
- Danisthirty: How do you know that?
- Fir Tree: (impatient) I AM Groot!
- Danisthirty: Aha! I see...  Absolutely!
- Fir Tree: (nodding) I am Groot!
- Danisthirty: One question to go and that's the key... I understand why you recomend that to the participants. Everyone will agree. You'll see. And now, today's question...
- Decar: Uhmmm, tunnels! Let's see what happens!


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?

- The Grinch: (maniacal laugh) Mwahahahaha! Mwahahahaha!
- Santa Claus: (with a condescending look) I see you are ready!
- The Grinch: What for?
- Danisthirty: You tell us...
- Gingerbread Man: You may look a tough guy, but you are fluffy on the inside.
- The Grinch: No, I'm not. Fluffy? On the inside I'm GREEN! Like a Green Meeple >:(
- Green Meeple: I wouldn't go that far, chap... (turning around) I'm going to the bar. Anyone coming?
- Fir Tree: I am Groot! :o
- Snowman: Please, don't tell me they are serving ice with the drinks... I'm gonna faint...
- Danisthirty: Don't worry about that now, your eggnog is ready to roll.
- Snowman: Thank you. I need it badly.
- Gingerbread Man: What do we have this evening?
- Santa Claus: The Scoring Circus on its Magical Mystery Tour. It has come to Meepletown.
- The Grinch: Yeeeeeees! And they will be performing for us... I got front row tickets for us all.
- Gingerbread Man: You see? You are a great guy after all...
- Danisthirty: I agree...
- The Grinch: (interrupting) Don't call me that... My skin itches... I'm just doing it to show off in front of our dearest quiz participants.
- Fir Tree: I am Groot!  ???
- Danisthirty: (shrugging) Whatever...
- Snowman: Can we stay for the show and then go to the Christmas Party together?
- Gingerbread Man: I don't see why not.
- The Grinch: (rising one eyebrow) So you are inviting me?
- Danisthirty: Quid pro quo, Clarice!  >:D
- The Grinch: How do you know the Fairy's Meeple name?
- Danisthirty: Never mind...  ::)
- The Grinch: (to participants) Are you ready? Hope this question gives a headache so you cannot celebrate anything...
- Gingerbread Man: (to Santa Claus) This is just a phase, right?


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?



- Santa Claus:Thank you for participating. Merry Christmas to you all!!!
- The Grinch: Let them alone! They will have to squeeze their brains dry...
- Danisthirty: Coming?

(the Meeple Council leaves. The Grinch stays behind.)

- Meepledrone: Can I come?
- The Grinch: No... What made you think otherwise?  >:D
- DrMeeple: Never trust these crazy meeples, especially the Grinch...
- Murphy013: Anyone for a game of Catan?
- Meepledrone: ...  :o

Well done and congratulations on this wonderful quiz, and huge thanks to Meepledrone for orchestrating it all! While I haven't been answering the questions (most of them are far too complicated for a simple purist like me) I have enjoyed checking in to see all the little jokes and "conversations"...

Merry Christmas to everyone at Carcassonne Central! And a happy new year to follow :)

Thank you for your kind words... The Advent Calendar Quiz was a great way to jog the scoring of some curious expansion interactions. I hope you enjoyed participating or visiting it as much as I did while running it. In the days to come I will disclose the answers and our ranking... I will start on December 27th. Feel free to submit additional entries in the meantime, if you want to keep your families busy. ;)

But wait, The Meeple Council prepared something for you:



- Meeple Council: We wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  ;D ;D ;D ;D
- Gingerbread Man: ...With more Carcassonne expansions (official and created by fans)...
- Santa Claus: ...With more contests and gifts...
- Snowman: ...With more Winter Edition stuff...  ;)
- Danisthirty: ...With more championships... (Base game only, please)...
- The Grinch: With more crazy rules changes and conflicting clarifications...  >:D
- Meepledrone: (shouting) ...And cut! Thank you guys. This take is perfect...
- Meeple Council: (chatting indistinctively) ...  ^-^
- The Grinch: (to the Fir Tree) Hey! I didn't know you had a big brother...
- Fir Tree: I am Groot!  8)

Hi all,

I will start posting the answers and the ranking. Remember that:
* The scoring scenarios happen mainly during a game except those indicated as happening after the game (featuring the scoring of a field, a barn or a German Castle, for example.) I've ignored the scoring after the game provided in those cases where only scoring during the game was necessary.
* The figures belonging to the Meeple Council are just a decoration. They don't represent a particular turn or player color. They just indicate the number of expansions featured (tiles or figures) in the scenario.
* I assumed new rules for Halflings but I will also consider valid those answers with old rules.

Before starting with the question of the quiz, I will provide the answer of the sample question.  ;D

Cheers!

Sample Question: How many points does Red score?





Answer to Sample Question: Red will score 18 points.

The city has 4 tiles, a 4-point bathhouse and it is participated by two German castles:
- City feature points: 4 tiles x 2 points = 8 points
- Bathhouse bonus points: 4 points
- German castles bonus points: 2 castles x 3 points = 6 points
Total points = 18 points (8 points for the city + 4 points for the bathhouse + 6 points for the two German castles.)
