Question: Red places the last tile of the game. The player has the following questions:
a) How many points does each player score in the last turn of the game?
b) How many points does each player score after the game ends?

Notes:
* This question only uses normal meeples. No large meeples were used.
* We are considering the current rules for non-square tiles (C2/C3). If you use the C1 rules, please indicate so.



Answer: Depending on the rules applied, we will have two cases when dealing with the wonder tile:
* C1: the wonder tile is counted as 1 tile.
* C2/C3 (current default rules): each square space occupied by a wonder tile is counted as a separate tile.

Let's see each case in turn, starting with the current rules:

C2/C3 rules

a) Scoring the last turn:

Red occupies a completed city spanning across 2 square spaces on the wonder tile (the dirt patches limit the city) plus 3 regular tiles and 1 coat of arms. The city will be scored as a 5-tile city with a coat of arms. So, the player will receive 12 points ( ( 5 tiles + 1 coat of arms) x 2 points = 6 x 2 points)

Blue and Yellow score no points.


b) Scoring after the game:

Blue occupies an uncompleted road spanning across 3 square spaces (1 regular tile and 2 square spaces on the wonder tile). The road will be scored as a 3-tile road. So, the player will receive 3 points (3 tiles x 1 point per tile)

Red occupies an uncompleted garden on the last tile placed. Its scoring will consider 2 square spaces on the wonder tile, which are counted as 2 tiles, and 2 other regular. So, the player will receive 4 points (4 tiles x 1 point per tile)

Yellow occupies a field with 1 completed 2-tile city. Note that the farmer is in a field that only touches the wonder and the dirt patches limiting it. Therefore, the field does not touch the city, so the city with Notre-Dame does not contribute to the field. As a result, the player receives 3 points for the field (1 completed city x 3 points)


Bottlomline:
The answer to each question is as follows:
a) Scoring during the last turn:
    * Blue scores no points
    * Red scores 12 points
    * Yellow scores no points
b) Scoring after the game:
    * Blue scores 3 points
    * Red scores 4 points
    * Yellow scores 3 points


C1 rules

a) Scoring the last turn:

Red occupies a completed city including the wonder tile plus 3 regular tiles and 1 coat of arms. The city will be scored as a 4-tile city with a coat of arms. So, the player will receive 10 points ( ( 4 tiles + 1 coat of arms) x 2 points = 5 x 2 points)

Blue and Yellow score no points.


b) Scoring after the game:

Blue occupies an uncompleted road spanning across 1 wonder and 1 regular tile. The road will be scored as a 2-tile road. So, the player will receive 2 points (2 tiles x 1 point per tile)

Red occupies an uncompleted garden on the last tile placed. Its scoring will consider 1 tile for the wonder tile, and 2 other regular. So, the player will receive 3 points (3 tiles x 1 point per tile)

Yellow occupies a field with 1 completed 2-tile city. Note that the farmer is in a field that only touches the wonder and the dirt patches limiting it. Therefore, the field does not touch the city, so the city with Notre-Dame does not contribute to the field. As a result, the player receives 3 points for the field (1 completed city x 3 points)


Bottlomline:
The answer to each question is as follows:
a) Scoring during the last turn:
    * Blue scores no points
    * Red scores 10 points
    * Yellow scores no points
b) Scoring after the game:
    * Blue scores 2 points
    * Red scores 3 points
    * Yellow scores 3 points

Welcome to the Forum, @Aregmeeple.

Even though I have lots of expansions and variants, I usually prefer the base game with 3 or 4 players.

Regardless of what you end with, if you hang out a while you’ll have no trouble with all manner of Carc trivia!  Enjoy!

Hi Maiday,
I live in Germany and I could in principle ship to UK as well. Haven't done so before, therefore I'm not sure if there's anything extra needed to ship to UK since it's not part of EU.
Best

Hi there,

Any answer to this?
I've sent my idea via PM, and I have to say one of the point I wasn't sure about popped up during a game... I'd be interested in knowing the answer :)

Here is our largest game so far... List of extensions here under.
The game took a whole day, and I don't think we'll play such a game any time soon, unless I find a partner who loves those big games as much as I do...
It was way too long for my gf, and she lost it when I used the a strategy similar to the Abbot loop scoring strategy ( https://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=6608.0 ) in order to place meeple as abbots on every special monastery during the last turns of the game.

As my score was a few hundreds below hers, the synod gift allowed me to place a meeple as an abbot on special monastery, continue one of her feature, collect the last gift card (the one I just used) and start again with every meeple in order to score big points at the end of the game...

Also, I had the longest road and largest city, allowing me to score 99 points for cities and 134 for roads!

I hope we didn't make too much mistakes about the rules interactions  ;D

Game ended with 2147 to 2006 points.
