I Love the Landscape!
« on: March 01, 2023, 06:33:50 PM »
Inspired by the I Love the Postman thread, I thought it would be fun to start a thread for posting end-of-game photo(s).  Add whatever details you want, or just the photo(s).  No game is too big or too small--all Carcassonne Landscapes are beautiful!  Also feel free to add photos of the players if you have them--all Carcassonne players are beautiful, too!

I'll start with tonight's game against my daughter using my Updated Double-Sided Tiles.  Here is the landscape just before and after final scoring.  She (Gray) won over me (Yellow): 199-172.

@Challa007, love both of the C1 custom tile landscapes!  Expansion 11 looks crazy.

@wolnic, Beautiful generalization of circular river town!

Thanks for sharing!

I just came here to say this is a really nice idea for a topic @kothmann and I'm surprised it didn't exist yet. +1 merit

Thanks for the merit.   :)

Here's a small landscape from a recent 37-tile game using travel-sized tiles and 5 meeples per team.  Parents (Red) versus kids (Blue), alternating turns with no intra-team communication allowed.  Parents got lucky draws to complete the 12-point city on the right and kids failed to get any FFxx tile to join the farmer at the top into the huge field, until the turn after I placed the savage blocking RRFF tile.  We won by only a couple points!

Todays game:
C1 base game with River, Abbot, Phantom, Large Meeple, Wandering Preachers (by @Snearone  with rules by @kothmann ), The Big Highwayman (and the Reward)

This was the first time we played Wandering Preachers and I really liked the rules where the preachers grant points as long as they are not completely surrounded.... Thank you Snearone and Kothmann for the fun!!!

Nice!

Looks like a savage battle for the big field on the left!  Did Green steal at the last minute?  Was it enough to win?

Interesting tile mix!  Do you add bonus points for the wheel tiles?

:pink-meeple: won the game by 27 points,  :green-meeple: started the battle with the large meeple on the field but  :pink-meeple: could egalize, so no advantage from the field for the parties...  :D

no, these are just the base game tiles of BB5, we ignore the wheel/sheep/vineyard tiles ...  ;)

I meant to ask if pink stole at the last minute.  ::)
But I thought the leftmost pink meeple was Large.  But even if it had been, green still wins the game!

yes, the leftmost pink meeple is the large meeple.
On that field, both green and pink have 1 normal and 1 large meeple each, so equal score
All other farmers are alone on their field.

Or do you see that differently? Did we oversee something here ? ?
