Quizzes on WICA
« on: October 18, 2021, 04:06:16 PM »
What about adding interactive quizzes on WICA at "Quizzes" page (https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Quizzes) or another page? This could be done using "Quizzes" extension of MediaWiki (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Quiz).

Nice. Problem is, that it's very nice, for example Road from Summer 2019 - Road of Everything.
We know at least, that it will be +1 for double tile of German Castle for both Castles. and -1 for 2 Halflings with Fairy and Red. due to just one point per rectangle tile for road. Luckily Ringmaster is on simple road :D

I have to revisit those questions questions involving Halflings (scorings and invalid barn positions - just pointing them out) and ringmasters on non-basic features mainly.

I just want to imagine, what if Ringmaster is placed on Labyrinth tile? It's not basic game feature (of course road is, but labyrinth in advanced variant is not). Damm rule sensense

If you apply the rules restriction affecting non-basic features strictly, a ringmaster on a Labyrinth should not be granted the bonus no matter what.

I do not agree. The labyrinth is only a road like that from Spiel 18 tile that also gives a bonus when playing with the advanced rules. With the basic rules, is only a road. When placing the ringmaster on the labyrinth tile (with the basic or advanced rules), you still place it on a road. You do not place on "labyrinth" feature, but on a "road" feature. There is no scorable feature named "labyrinth", but there is a scorable feature named "road". In the case of an abbey, you place the ringmaster on an "abbey", not on a "monastery", so...
But who knows what opinion does (not) HiG has.

Well, after HiG telling us that a ringmaster placed as a monk on a German monastery replacing a normal monastery in the base game didn't grant the ringmaster bonus, it seems they were quite strict with the rules...

When placed on the labyrinth tile, the ringmaster is placed on a road. When placed on a German monastery, the ringmaster is placed on a German monastery, not on a monastery.

Placing a ringmaster as a highwayman on a labyrinth with basic rules doesn't feel the same as placing it as a monk on a German monastery?

I "feel" like Carcassonne93, the labyrinth is still a road. Placing the ringmaster on the labyrinth should keep the same rule as placing it on any of the four connected roads.

Who knows, maybe HiG would agree, would not...
