Answer #24: Let's score the this scenario step by step.
>> Preamble  Castle lords are removed
The scoring of this endgame scenario should start by removing the castle lords and scoring the wonders. This means that
Red's castle lord will be removed without scoring points or getting the fairy bonus.
>> Scoring wonders
Red will score 3 points for the Circus Maximus wonder (1 knight x 3 points per knight). Note that:
* In a 3player game, each knight is worth 3 points.
* We only consider knights from other players but
Red, who placed the wonder. So the player only scores points for the
blue knight (bottom left).
Yellow will score 8 points for the Alhambra wonder (2 farmers x 4 points per farmer). This wonder will consider only
Yellow's farmers.
So, the players receive the following points for their wonders:
*
Blue scores no points
*
Red scores 3 points for the Circus Maximus wonder
*
Yellow scores 8 points for the Alhambra wonder
>> Scoring uncompleted features
We have the following uncompleted features, not considering fields:
* The uncompleted city top center occupied by
Red worth 1 point (1 tile x 1 point per tile)
* The uncompleted city bottom left occupied by
Blue worth 2 points ( (1 tile + 1 coat of arms) x 1 point = 2 x 1 points)
* The uncompleted city bottom right occupied by
Red worth 1 point (1 tile x 1 point per tile)
* The uncompleted road on the right occupied by
Blue. This road has 5 tiles, an inn and the Mage. So it will be worth 5 points (0 points for the road + 5 Mage bonus points):
* 0 points for the road itself (5 tiles x 0 points per tile for the inn)
* 5 points for the Mage (5 tiles x 1 point for the Mage)
* The uncompleted Baba Yaga's Hut bottom left occupied by
Yellow is worth 6 points (1 point for the feature + 5 points for the adjacent empty spaces)
So, the players score their uncompleted features as follows:
*
Blue scores 7 points (2 points for the city + 5 points for the road)
*
Red scores 2 points (1 point for the top city + 1 point for the bottom city)
*
Yellow scores 6 points for Baba Yaga's Hut.
>> Scoring barns
The
blue barn and the
yellow barn share a field containing:
* 3 completed cities (one of them is the city of Leipzig)
* 1 castle
Note that the pigherd by the river curve has no effect on barns.
The
yellow barn will not receive any bonus points for the
yellow meeple placed in the Tanners quarter in the city of Leipzig. This bonus only affects fields, not barns.
Therefore,
blue barn and
yellow barn will score 17 points each ( (3 completed cities x 4 points per city) + (1 castle x 5 points per castle ) = 12 + 5 points)
So, the players score their barns as follows:
*
Blue scores 17 points
*
Red scores no points
*
Yellow scores 17 points
>> Scoring top field
The field at the top occupied by
Yellow has the following features:
* 2 completed cities (one of them is the city of Leipzig)
* 1 castle
The
yellow farmer will benefit from the
yellow pig in the field. The farmer will also receive the bonus points for the
yellow meeple placed in the Tanners quarter in the city of Leipzig.
Therefore,
Yellow will score 13 points ( (2 completed cities x (3 points per city + 1 point for the pig) ) + (1 castle x (4 points per castle + 1 point for the pig) ) = (2 x 4 points) + (1 x 5 points) = 8 + 5 points)
Yellow will also receive 8 points for the Tanners quarter bonus ( (3 farmhouses + 1 shed) x 2 points = 4 x 2 points).
So, the players score the top field as follows:
*
Blue scores no points
*
Red scores no points
*
Yellow scores 21 points (13 points for the field + 8 points for the Tanners quarter bonus).
>> Scoring the right field
The field on the right occupied by
Red and
Yellow has the following features:
* 3 completed cities (one of them connected to the field by a city overpass)
* 1 completed besieged city (connected by a city overpass)
Both players share the majority in the field.
Red also has the
red pig in this field, which will benefit their farmer.
Red will then score 20 points ( (3 completed cities x (3 points per city + 1 point for the pig) ) + (1 completed besieged city x (3 points per city + 1 point for the pig) x 2 for the siege ) = (3 x 4 points) + (1 x 4 x 2 points) = 12 + 8 points)
Yellow will score 15 points ( (3 completed cities x 3 points per city) ) + (1 completed besieged city x 3 points per city x 2 for the siege) ) = (3 x 3 points) + (1 x 3 x 2 points) = 9 + 6 points)
The
yellow farmer would also benefit from the bonus points for the
yellow meeple placed in the Tanners quarter in the city of Leipzig.
Yellow will then receive 2 points for the Tanners quarter bonus (1 shed x 2 points).
So, the players score the right field as follows:
*
Blue scores no points
*
Red scores 20 points
*
Yellow scores 17 points (15 points for the field + 2 points for the Tanners quarter bonus)
>> Scoring the King and Robber Baron tiles
Blue will score 6 points for the Robber Baron tile (6 completed roads x 1 point). Note that the short roads on the CRCR tile on the right (next to the tile with the Mage) are not considered.
Yellow will score 6 points for the King tile (6 completed cities x 1 point). Note that the city of Leipzig is considered for this bonus.
So, the players score the King and Robber Baron tiles as follows:
*
Blue scores 6 points for the Robber Baron tile
*
Red scores no points
*
Yellow scores 6 points for the King tile
>> Scoring other points
The only missing scoring is the penalty associated with the Vodyanoy tile:
*
Blue will score 2 points for their meeple trapped on the Vodyanoy tile.
The only missing scoring is the penalty graned
So, the remaining scorings are as follows:
*
Blue scores 2 points for Vodyanoy
*
Red scores no points
*
Yellow scores no points
>> Total scoring
The total scoring for each player is as follows:

Blue scores 28 points (2 points for the city + 5 points for the road + 17 points for the barn + 6 points for the Robber Baron tile  2 points for Vodyanoy)

Red scores 25 points (3 points for the Circus Maximus wonder + 1 point for the top city + 1 point for the bottom city + 20 points for the right field)

Yellow scores 75 points (8 points for the Alhambra wonder + 6 points for Baba Yaga's Hut + 17 points for the barn + 21 points for the top field and the Tanners quarter bonus + 17 points for the right field + 6 points for the King tile).
