General / Re: What is your favorite tile in the basegame?
« on: January 28, 2023, 04:11:53 AM »
I almost never play just a base game, so it is a hard choice.
So tactics aside, in the visual aspect it will probably be the CCCC.

I'm in. Blue color for me please :)
If there will be more players interested in this, we can split and do two games simultaneously for greater chaos in a thread (or create second one, but it's less fun).
Regarding "table" it can be created digitally, in VASSAL, just plain layers in graphic program, or creating that on a site that @kothmann uses to play online with his additions.

To my surprise, my second slice contained another prize.... A blue meeple. The yellow meeple has a friend. Yaaaay!  :blue-meeple: :yellow-meeple:

So you found only two? I though it will be more... After all when the cake is delicious, you can't not devour it  ^-^
Good thing you didn't chip your tooth on it, would be very unfortunate, Roscón de Reyes traditionally have only one figurine, so the appearance of more can actually be quite a surprise.

Too many tokens.
Search for more stuff like this on official previous and you will find plenty. Best one so far were (and in some cases still are) on big box 7 front art.

Those C3 tokens look so off  :-\

Increase the print margin, use less accurate cutting machines, have less returns... that's what I'm seeing :(

This may also be the reason for the overflowing cities with buildings. One cut off building looks bad, if they are all like that than it was meant to be this way, obviously. Goodbye well-fitted roads  :'(

Very nice comparision, thank you @Linksux for the photos  :(y) +1
If only 2022 version had as many buildings in the cities as one from 2012...


Funny think is question 24, nobody answered it correctly.
Indeeed, and I'm really frustrated at answering the main question correctly, and then making a silly answer for ingots... Snearone did also answer the main question correctly, congratulations  :yellow-meeple:

Congrats to you as well, and I feel you, for me it was stating that no meeple goes to bathhouse completely overlooking that 1 point road one.

Thank you Meepledrone for the quiz!

Congratulations on your win and for retaining your title @corinthiens13 :(y) :(y) :(y)
You have also almost equalled with @Challa007 and @KBellon in correct answers without unnecessary additional points scoring ;D :(y) :(y)

Additional congratulations to the three champions who were the only ones to answer question #17 fully correctly  :(y) :(y) :(y)

If only I hadn't stopped answering as soon as possible from question 18 onwards, I would have repeated exactly same places as last year :D Still, I'm surprised I didn't fall much much lower because of it  ::)

My biggest mistake was in question 18, I've got the scoring right, but done the simplest and very visible math wrong
"Blue scores 22 from a city, 8 and 7 from bets, 27 total" ouch.

But there is one thing I need to come back to  O:-)

Answer #4: The tile placed completes a road with 10 tiles which features a bridge, two tunnels connected by the yellow and black tunnel tokens and an Ukranian traditional house acting as an inn by the lake. There is a regular inn in the scenario but it is not connected to the completed road network.

I've underlines crucial part that wasn't stated in the question, as CundCo says:
"You can use it as a normal tile, as an additional tile for the 1st expansion Inns and Cathedrals, where it can be used as an inn, and/or as an additional tile for the mini-expansion The Crop Circles."

That tile features Ukrainian house, not an inn, it can act as one but does not need too! You can not play those two tiles with an in from exp8 and claim that they have no inns while playing also with exp1, but you can do exactly that with Ukrainian tile, so that needs clarifiyng on WICA  O:-)

Thanks  :)
And congratulation Snearone, very good points for those last questions !

Thanks, but as you can now see, it was a temporary boost before coming to an almost complete stop.

Note that vineyards are not considered for scorings after the game.

Oh no, this one I didn't even checked on WICA as I always played like that. I wonder how many more I was "sure" like that...

Question #4: Can you tell Danisthity how many points does each player score after this tile is placed?

Answer #4: The tile placed completes a road with 10 tiles which features a bridge, two tunnels connected by the yellow and black tunnel tokens and an Ukranian traditional house acting as an inn by the lake. There is a regular inn in the scenario but it is not connected to the completed road network. Note that tiles are counted only once, even if some of them contribute more than once to the road network considering tunnel entrances and bridges too.

Since Red has two meeples on the road whereas   Blue has only one, Red will the player scoring for the road. The player will receive 20 points for it (10 tiles x (1 point per tile + 1 point for the inn) = 10 x 2 points)

Note that the crop circle featured on the Ukranian Promo tile does not play any part in this scenario. 

- Blue scores 0 points
- Red scores 20 points for the road

Ok, I will wait till very end to debate this one >:D

If someone has nice png of meeples for all colors, please let me know to update my ugly paintbrush versions

I can help with that, with robbers and markers for king and robber as well :D And maybe also with 100 score board for bigger devices ::)
It's nice that it is easly configurable by url, but I would suggest is to create setup page with checkmarks of what to be included, options to change size of the meeples and design of the scoreboard to include plenty of variants :)

Thank you everyone! Hope you enjoyed these crazy past weeks as much as I did. ;)

Thank You!
Yes, it was very much enjoyed  :(y) ;D
We will soon see how many questions were answered incorrectly ::)

Official Rules / Re: What is "unfair play" in Carcassonne?
« on: December 20, 2022, 10:45:33 AM »

  • make a player "waste" his last precious meeple by forcing him to play it (e.g. by using a corn circle tile)
  • and so on...

There is no need to "waste" your last meeple, you may add it, you don't need to.
