**Death Meeple**:

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 :)

**Meepledrone**:

Oooops! Here is the answer!

Hop you like it.

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
