It is odd that both a) and b) bring 1 point. b) is definetily harder.

Only C1. This is heresy... Here there are 3 good expansions that could have been converted to C3.

https://cundco.de/spiele-erweiterungen/mini-erweiterungen/?p=1 – I do not find them. The City Gates do not exist, in fact, even in C1.

- Gingerbread Man: It's my turn again.
- Santa Claus: You have something special for today, right?
- Gingerbread Man: Of course! :)
- Gingerbread Man: I included some Halfling tiles to spice things up ...
- The Grinch: I love gnawing on triangular tiles, they are so crisp... >:D
- Santa Claus: Are you sure?
- The Grinch: Yes, with a cup of hot cocoa...
- Gingerbread Man: Stop it!
- Santa Claus: Ahhhh! The season spirit is getting into him... :)
- The Grinch: Never! That's not an option!!! >:(
- The Grinch: Just rejoicing in all the confusion this little devils have created through the years.
- The Grinch: What would Decar think of this?
- Decar: (from the distance) I heard you. Stop messing with me. :(
- Decar: If you are bored, I can call the crabs so you can fun together!
- The Grinch: Touché! :P
- Gingerbread Man: Well, no time for this.
- Gingerbread Man: Our contestants must be impatient by now...
- Danisthirty: Yep! Hit it!



Question #6: After placing this tile, the Gingerbread Man wants to know how many points each player scores. Can you give him the answer?
 
Notes:
* This question only uses normal meeples. No large meeples were used.
* We are considering the current rules for non-square tiles (C2/C3). If you use the C1 rules, please indicate so.
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.

- Snowman: I bring you Christmas-y news!
- Santa Claus: No way! The drawbridges are here? :o
- Snowman: YES! ;D
- The Grinch: Huh! So many questions!!! ???
- Santa Claus: That's the Christmas spirit taking over!
- The Grinch: I hate it!
- Snowman: We know, but you can do nothing about it...
- Santa Claus: The Crab Police is around... >:D
- The Grinch: Why did you ask for their help?
- The Grinch: Where are your meeple elves?
- Santa Claus: Well, it seems the oldbonz is running the Advent Calendar Photoshoot...
- The Grinch: ...and all of them volunteered, right? ::)
- Santa Claus: Yes!
- The Grinch: And you couldn't tell them no?
- Santa Claus: (shrugging) It is not in my nature...
- Snowman: ...but the crabs stepped in and they are doing a really good job!
- Snowman: And they have you under control too...
- Santa Claus: Ha ha ha! So much fun to see!!!
- The Grinch: (storming away) I HATE you all... >:(
- Snowman: High five?
- Santa Claus: Yeah!!! ^-^



Question #7: The Snowman places this tile on Red's behalf, and he has the following questions:

f) Can the player move their meeple on the road into the city bottom center? (1 point)
g) Which actions from a) to f) can be performed to take control of the city top right, if any? (1 point)
h) Which actions from a) to f) can be performed to take control of the city bottom center, if any? (1 point)
i) How many points does each player score if Red tries to get the most points this turn? (1 point)

Notes:
* This question only uses normal meeples. No large meeples were used.
* Red has several meeples in their supply
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.
* Questions a) and b) refer to the first symbol below. Questions c) and d) refer to the second symbol below.
      
* In questions g) and h), "to take control" means "to gain the single majority."





PS: Added note on the symbols.
PS: Clarified the meaning of "to take control."

They're certainly ambiguous. If you read the rules I reckon you can quite confidently work out the intention of the questions asked, but I did feel the need to add a qualifier to my answer.

I'd also like a definition of "control", I felt the need to add a clarification comment on my answer there too.

- Santa Claus: Auch! I just fell flat on a frozen lake!
- Snowman: Are you okay?
- Danisthirty: Hope you are doing okay... Meeple noses are especially sensitive.
- Santa Claus: Don't have to tell me...
- Snowman: We will have to talk with oldbonz about safety measures...
- Santa Claus: Nah! No problem... Are you ready for the next question?
- Snowman: Yaaaaay!!!!
- Danisthirty^-^



Question #8: Santa Claus places this tile on Yellow's behalf. The player has a hunch that they can complete the road and even receive extra points for the German cathedral. Here you are some questions:
a) Which ferries can be moved?
b) In order to complete the road and get the German cathedral extra points, what position changes should the player apply to the ferries?
c) How many points would each player score in this case?
