Title: Easter Mini Quiz 2020
Post by: Meepledrone on April 11, 2020, 04:37:42 PM
Dear all!

Hope you are all in good health!

This is just a tiny Easter Mini Quiz for you. So enjoy!

Happy Easter!!

===

We are all in a hurry! It's Easter and we all want to celebrate. But the Easter Bunny needs some help...

- Easter Bunny: Hey guys! We are gonna miss the party.
- Blue Abbot: (in a low voice) Shhhh! I'm praying!
- Blue Phantom: I could not get any closer to the monastery but as soon as I score this city, I'm off.
- Easter Bunny: Lucky you! That Halfling made your day.  :)
- Blue Phantom: Sure it did, but what about Blue Abbot?
- Blue Abbot: Shhhh! I'm praying!
- Easter Bunny: We are going to be late... It'll never finish the monastery in time with that...
- Blue Phantom:(interrupting with a whisper) Bah! Let it go. We'll have to deal with the chocolate eggs on our own. What a shame!
- Blue Abbot: (shouting) I heard you! I'm off...
- Easter Bunny: ...  :o
- Blue Phantom: This never fails...  >:D

===

Please help the Easter Bunny to score this turn so they all can go hunting for some Easter eggs together. The situation is this:
* The Blue Abbot is on a monastery and the fairy is assigned to it.
* The Blue player player places a new Halfling and completes a city
* Later the Blue Abbot is removed and scored and the Blue Phantom is placed on the Halfling just placed.

The Easter Bunny would like to apply the new rules for C2 Halfling just published by HiG. Can you tell how many points does the Blue player score in each round of scoring this turn?

Please post you answers here!

OK, nobody solved the quiz. But you still get the promised Easter eggs and nobody needs to look for them with a torch.

I got from Guido Kämmer 3 expansion which are already available at CarcF, BUT in a better quality.
 - Ramparts (contains both parts)
 - River system
 - Lakeland (all 4 parts). I wanna thank Meepledrone for creation of the rule document

Seli gave us 2 more Winter-adaptions
 - Well & donkey
 - The horse

Unplanned was Breweries V 1.1 which i received from Amorpeus & KlausiMausi. Meepleater have no issue with providing this expansion again

At least 3 expansions from quevy which are hidden treasures in the workshop are moved
 - Tolls & Taxes
 - Falconers & Poachers
 - The boy who cries wolf (with 3 additional tiles of JPutty927)

You will find the whole stuff in the download area.

The following table summarizes the result for the 3 scoring rulesets for scoring Halflings.
* Rules from 2014 (possibly misinterpreted due to the lack of details in the rules):
   - Monasteries: 1 or 2 triangles in a square space score as 1 tile for monasteries
   - Roads and cities: no details provided so the the rules for monasteries were considered for these features too (possibly misinterpretation).
* Rules based on clarifications from 10/2015:
   - Roads, cities and monasteries: triangular tiles are considered individually for the scoring of these features, no matter they may share the same square space.
* Rules from 2020 (revisiting the rules from 2014, with some more details in some areas)
   - Monasteries: 1 or 2 triangles in a square space score as 1 tile for monasteries, so they consider occupied spaces.
   - Roads and cities: are scored as per the normal rules. If so, triangular tiles are considered individually for the scoring of these features.

The table details the rounds and steps involved in the scoring but as you can see there is a mismatch with vineyards and the fairy as they are bonus points that would be misplaced if applied to the Abbot. The quiz was testing several aspects:
* How to score features: Results vary in this case depending on the rules for Halflings being applied.
* When happens the scoring: This is important to decide what bonus points are applicable.

Nasty, huh?

Some comments to each row here:

[1] The standard 1-point fairy bonus is applied at the beginning of Blue's turn. The fairy was assigned to the abbot in a previous turn.

[2] Blue's abbot is placed on an incomplete monastery (on 1 square tile) surrounded by 9 additional tiles occupying 7 square spaces:
   - 2 square tiles
   - 6 triangular tiles in 3 square spaces
   - 1 double-sized tile occupying 2 adjacent square spaces to the monastery
Just remember we are removing and scoring the abbot. This means we are scoring a figure, not the feature. This action takes place in phase 2. Placing a meeple. And regular feature scoring is performed later in phase 3. Scoring a feature.

[3] The vineyard bonus is applied to monasteries when completed and scored in phase 3. Scoring a feature. As mentioned in note [2], this is not the case, since we are scoring a figure earlier, not a feature. Therefore, the vineyard bonus cannot be applied to the scoring of Blue's abbot.

[4] The fairy 3-point bonus is applied to assigned meeples on features scored in phase 3. Scoring a feature. As mentioned in note [2], this is not the case, since we are scoring a figure earlier, not a feature. Therefore, the fairy scoring bonus cannot be applied to the scoring of Blue's abbot.

[5] The completed city scored by Blue's phantom has 3 tiles:
   - 1 square tile
   - 2 triangular tiles sharing the same square space
Depending on the rules applied for Halflings, the scoring will differ.

What do you think of all the tricky details hidden in these few tiles?

I prefer the rules with 2015's clarifications. These rules will never die!! ;D HiG when do you say something about that?? C2 will keep  the old rules too or not???
Title: Re: Easter Mini Quiz 2020
Post by: Meepledrone on April 21, 2020, 04:44:54 AM
You should send Georg Wild some flowers for those clarifications...

Why would HiG stick to the original rules plus some updates?... I wonder... >:D 
Title: Re: Easter Mini Quiz 2020
Post by: Meepledrone on November 01, 2021, 05:29:52 AM
Here you are an update to this answer to reflect the latest rules for C1 (short for the classic edition) after the clarifications from 10/2015 and C2 (short for the new edition) after the clarifications from 1/2021.
* The C1 rules consider each tile individually no matter their shape, so two Halflings in a square count like 2 tiles.
* The C2 rules consider occupied spaces when scoring features, so two Haflings in a square count like 1 tile.



Please help the Easter Bunny to score this turn so they all can go hunting for some Easter eggs together. The situation is this:
* The Blue Abbot is on a monastery and the fairy is assigned to it.
* The Blue player player places a new Halfling and completes a city
* Later the Blue Abbot is removed and scored and the Blue Phantom is placed on the Halfling just placed.

The Easter Bunny would like to apply the new rules for C2 Halfling just published by HiG. Can you tell how many points does the Blue player score in each round of scoring this turn?

The following table summarizes the result for the 2 scoring rulesets for scoring Halflings.
* C1 rules based on the clarifications from 10/2015:
   - Roads, cities and monasteries: triangular tiles are considered individually for the scoring of these features, no matter they may share the same square space (features score according to actual number of tiles no matter their shape).
* C2 rules based on the clarifications from 1/2021 (possibly the origianl intent for 2014 too):
   - Roads, cities and monasteries: 1 or 2 triangles in a square space score like 1 tile (features score according to occupied spaces).

The table details the rounds and steps involved in the scoring but as you can see there is a mismatch with vineyards and the fairy as they are bonus points that would be misplaced if applied to the Abbot. The quiz was testing several aspects:
* How to score features: Results vary in this case depending on the rules for Halflings being applied.
* When happens the scoring: This is important to decide what bonus points are applicable.
