News and Events / Re: Christmas Present (2013) print-and-play expansion
« on: November 06, 2022, 07:12:02 AM »
I have implemented all corrections and made a post on Facebook (and tagged Rachel Anthony-Rowlands who made the English PDF) to let people know that changes have been made in case they printed something out (this is why online rules are better than printed).

I think this is a card where a clarfication would be necessary. The wording of original rules seems to indicate that the card can be activated on incomplete features, too: it mentions that if another player activates a similar card on the same feature, the two cards cancel each other. (BTW: do they cancel each other when three or more players share majority and two of those players activate such a card?)

I've added the cancellation thing to the main text, and added a footnote for the situation where three or more players share majority. I've taken the position that the two players who play tiebreaker cards will both have +1 influence over the other players and share the majority between the two of them, to the exclusion of the other players. I think this makes the most sense.
I agree. What I don't really like is that if this card can be activated on an incomplete feature then the players need to memorize who activated the card and which incomplete feature is affected.

Also, there are some mistranslations in the introduction.

It happens once every year, it's cold, everything is covered in snow and the whole world is decorated with pine trees. The Farmer is free of work. Christmas. In this case, millions of gifts find their owners. They are very happy with some of them, but sometimes the feeling "they shouldn't have opened the package" overwhelms the person. In this add-on players will receive gifts and not all of them will be happy ones (at least for the other players)

What is it? It happens once every year, it's cold, everything is covered in snow and the whole world is decorating pine trees. Shall I tell you the answer? Of course, it is Christmas.

Hi,
After reading the original Hungarian rules I suggest some corrections to the translation:

 :red-meeple: : current English translation at the WICA
 :green-meeple: : suggested correction by me
 :violet-meeple: : my comments

Score an unfinished cloister for +1 points per tile.
Score an unfinished cloister for +1 points per tile (except for the closter tile itself).

Score double points for the remainder of the game.
Score 2 points for each of your meeples left in your supply.

When occupied fields are joined, score +1 point for each completed city.
When scoring a field with shared majority, score +1 point for each completed city.

Rotate an opponent's meeple onto its side to prevent it from being returned when the feature is completed.
Rotate (lay down) all meeples on a corresponding feature to prevent it from being returned when the feature is completed. If, later in the game, another meeple is deployed to this feature* it must be laid down as well. Points for the feature are awarded only at the end of the game.
* Might be a case when playing with The flier or Crop circles?
+ It needs to be clarified what happens when this feature joins another where meeples aren’t laid down. I suppose they should be affected, too.

When scoring a feature where two players share majority, the player who activates this card gains +1 influence.

Exchange an opponent's meeple on the corresponding feature type for one from your supply.
Exchange an opponent's meeple on the corresponding feature type for one of your own meeples on a feature of the same type.

Force an opponent to place their tile in the location of your choosing.
Force the next player to place their tile in the location of your choosing.

Thanks and merits to both LaPorxada (aka Big Boss) for finding this and Scott for printing and translating.  Just looked at the rules.  Wow, the one gift grants double points for the rest of the game.  If gotten early that would be a HUGE advantage.  Anyone else think that card might be a little too powerful??  Anyway, great little find.  Thanks again!

This is wrong translation. The original Hungarian rules say that with this card you get 2 points for each meeple in your supply AT THE END OF THE GAME.

I am not in the Mists club yet, but I received another 100-point scoring track today for my C3 collection.

Looks great. What are the exact sizes of this scoring track?

Hi,
I'll be in Essen from Thursday until Monday, too (meanwhile, taking part at the World Championships on Sunday :violet-meeple:)
But I'm not sure if we can get to the Messe until early afternoon on Thursday, Friday would be more convenient.
Saturday is questionable, too. I'm tempted to visit a Bundesliga match that day. But we'll see, it's not easy to get tickets.

Thank you guys.  :)
And thanks to Dan for the idea and organizing the tournament. (+ For allowing me to exceed my thinking time in our game.  ;) )
As for the pairings in the first round, I'm afraid BGA doesn't use any sophisticated method, it's just a completely random thing.

I think it's fair. But it brings work to @Meepledrone for update CarcC and @danisthirty  for authorize users.
This is the way :D

I'm always in favour of anything that involves work for other people, but have to think more carefully about it when it involves me having to do something... ;)

Half of the work has already been done:  ;)

Online Games and Competitions / Re: Our First BGA Tournament - Style
« on: July 14, 2022, 01:43:57 PM »
24 members currently on BGA - If all agreed to play in a Round Robin tournament - 23 concurrent games would be mind-blowingly epic!

If I'm not mistaken 15 is the maximum number of players in case of a round robin tournament.
The solution could be a two-phase tournament: in the first phase the players would be divided into groups (the size of a group can't be larger than 15), playing round robin within the groups, and then the first x players advance to the 2nd phase of the competition where another round robin tournament can take place. I'm voting for this format. (It is supported by BGA.)

Happy Birthday, @Leven !

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Thank you, Meepledrone. :) Today I can also celebrate the 15th anniversary of my first Carcassonne box. (Which means that it was a birthday present. :) )

Problem solved. I'm behind two routers so I just had to set up port forwarding on both.

Hi,
A friend of mine has only 32 bit Windows therefore he can't use recent JCZ versions.
Does anyone know whether it is possible to host games with the legacy (4.6.1. or older) versions of JClositerZone? I haven't tried it for years, and now it doesn't seem to work for me but maybe I'm just missing something. I think port forwarding is OK.

JCloisterZone FAQ, Suggestions & Bug Reports / Re: Engine error
« on: November 27, 2021, 09:44:46 AM »
Thanks. What is different in my case is that my username includes a [space] character so the whole path might be split into two parts having no quotation marks around it.


Good catch. Reported to @farin. Because there can be issue for loading tilesets, expansion def, a lot of thinks which can caused mine input to allow Addons in JCZ, which caused zillions of changes in engine, client, and core it self.


But have to say, life is now more beautiful. Just adding new possibilities for fan expansions can be more quicker by farin. But year ago, it was not possible, neighter adding tiles. So I'm happy for this what we have :D

Well, starting JCZ from another directory did not completely solve the issue. Since I've installed some addons (City Gates, Labyrinths) I can't start any new games. I assume the reason for this might be again the location of the installed addon file under the C:\Users\<my name>\AppData\Roaming\JCloisterZone\addons directory.

Hmm. That interesting, because default path for directory is
%AppData%\jcloisterzone
which in my case is "C:\Users\stano\AppData\Roaming\jcloisterzone"
But good to know, I will let to know to @farin.
