Question 18: The yellow barn receives only 8 points, because the Tanners quarter applies only for farmers (http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Markets_of_Leipzig#cite_note-14).

Question #13: Danisthirty is back with another challenge for you. He is completing a city with a watchtower. How many points are Red and Yellow scoring?Answer #13: So we will consider both rules versions valid, although I personally prefer the new ones that make more sense to me: every tile you place counts as 1 tile no matter it is a Halfling tile or a double-sized tile (German castle).New Halfling rules* Red scores 7 points for the watchtower.* Yellow scores 8 points for the cityRed's meeple is placed on the watchtower tile and get the bonus: 1 point per tile with at least one road segment. After checking the watchtower tile and the tiles in the eight adjacent spaces, we find 7 tiles with roads segments, including two Halflings and one German castle tile. So the watchtower bonus is 7 points (7 tiles x 1 points per tile.)On the other hand, Yellow's meeple placed on the hill breaks the tie for the majority so only Yellow scores the city (8 points = 3 tiles x 2 points + 1 coat of arms x 2 points.) Old Halfling rules* Red scores 6 points for the watchtower.* Yellow scores 8 points for the cityRed's meeple is placed on the watchtower tile and get the bonus: 1 point per tile with at least one road segment. After checking the watchtower tile and the tiles in the eight adjacent spaces, we find 6 tiles with roads segments, considering the two Halflings as one tile, and one German castle tile. So the watchtower bonus is 6 points (6 tiles x 1 points per tile.)On the other hand, Yellow's meeple placed on the hill breaks the tie for the majority so only Yellow scores the city (8 points = 3 tiles x 2 points + 1 coat of arms x 2 points.)

Question #17: Santa Claus needs your help to evaluate this German monastery with a C1 abbot. How many points would Yellow score at the end of the game? Answer #17: So we will consider both rules versions valid, although I personally prefer the new ones that make more sense to me: every tile you place counts as 1 tile no matter it is a Halfling tile or a double-sized tile (German castle).New Halfling rulesYellow scores 9 points.Yellow would score 1 point for the German monastery tile and 1 additional point per tile in the columns and rows spanning from that tile until a empty space is found. Note that:* Halfling tiles are counted individually.* Triangular gaps are not considered as an empty space as there is a neighbouring Halfling tile.* Double-sized tiles are counted as one tile (in this case we have German castle tiles.)Bearing all this in mind, the German monastery scores 9 points as follows:* German monastery tile: 1 point* Column above: 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point), including one German castle* Column below: 3 points (3 tiles x 1 point), including two Halflings in one square space* Row to the left: 1 point (1 tile x 1 point), including one Halfling ocupying one square space. Note that the square space ends the row.* Row to the right: 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point), including one Halfling ocupying one square space and a German castle.Old Halfling rulesYellow scores 8 points.Yellow would score 1 point for the German monastery tile and 1 additional point per tile in the columns and rows spanning from that tile until a empty space is found. Note that:* Two Halfling tiles are counted as one tile if placed on the same square.* Triangular gaps are not considered as an empty space as there is a neighbouring Halfling tile.* Double-sized tiles are counted as one tile (in this case we have German castle tiles.)Bearing all this in mind, the German monastery scores 8 points as follows:* German monastery tile: 1 point* Column above: 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point), including one German castle* Column below: 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point), including two Halflings in one square space considered as one tile together.* Row to the left: 1 point (1 tile x 1 point), including one Halfling ocupying one square space. Note that the square space ends the row.* Row to the right: 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point), including one Halfling ocupying one square space and a German castle.

Question #18: Danisthirty also wanted to pay homage to his dear friend Decar, the author of countless sketches of scenarios with German castles, Halflings and barns, all of them tagged with a recurring question: "How many farms...?http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=2649.0So here you are Yellow's barn placed on the intersection of two Halflings and the long side of a German castle. Danisthirty needs your help to score this barn, the field occupied by Blue and the meeples in the City of Leipzig. Will you let him down? Answer #18: * Blue scores 6 points* Yellow scores 10 points* Red scores 0 pointsBlue's meeple occupies a field with 2 completed cities, including Leipzig. Thus Blue scores 6 points for the field (2 cities x 3 points.)Yellow's barn occupies a field with 2 completed cities, including Leipzig. Thus Yellow scores 8 points for the field (2 cities x 4 points). Additionally, Yellow has a meeple in the Tanners Quarter in Leipzig, so Yellow will get 2 bonus points (1 farmhouse in the field x 2 points). As a result, Yellow scores 10 points (8 points for the barn + 2 points for the meeple in Leipzig.)Red has a meeple in the Tanners Quarter in the city of Leipzig but no farmers. As a result, Red gets no points.No C1 cottages in the fields are considered. The house rule would affect only those standalone cottages not located at the end of a road. Update on April 7th, 2020To my dismay, I realized that the Tanners Quarter bonus does not affect barns but only farmers. The answer to this question would be different as shown below. As a consequence, the scoring for this question would change, but the winner of the quiz stays the same. Sorry for any inconvenience.Answer #18 - updated: * Blue scores 6 points* Yellow scores 8 points* Red scores 0 pointsBlue's meeple occupies a field with 2 completed cities, including Leipzig.
