- Meepledrone: In Question #7, sub-questions g) and h) use "to take control" meaning "to gain the single majority."

Secret Code in question #8.5 is very nice this year   :))

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

Yes, in questions g) and h) the term "control" is ambiguous.

The long-awaited time of year has finally arrived!
Thank you @Meepledrone for organizing this wonderful event  once again  :(y) :(y) :(y) :(y)

I know someone who will be REALLY pleased about this  ;)
I wonder who could that be ^-^

No more extra points for speed, only correct answer matters!

@BBG they also changed position of watermark on one of the monasteries, so now it stands out.

Regarding Liepzig, bigger signposts are nice change, in C2 not all of the elements were rotated by exactly 45 degree, but at least It wasn't as obvious at the first glance as the monastery book is now ::) They also changed from Berbador to some uglier font.

Thanks for comparison, +1

After an unexpected and rather long break, I will soon be able to enter the world of Carcassonne again.
Has the date and location of the meeting been set yet?
My personal preference would be London, preferably on one of the Saturdays.

What's the brown tile next to the start tile in the centre of the board (picture)? I don't recognise it.

Brazilian metal tile?

I also would be interested in two sets.

Does players draw next tile as soon as they lay down previous one, so they have time to think about it, or they wait for previous player to finish the move and then draw the tile?
In my experience this one is a must, as it greatly speeds up the game.

I've gone back to the document I created for all the Lost Expansions (originally this was for expansions mentioned on, an early Carcassonne fan site), and the notes for The Holy Grail lead me to be (almost) 100% sure that this is the start block from that expansion. Sample images, for the descriptions below, were missing in the original source.

That's it! It all adds up, including the 14 valuation square and the cloister.
Excelent work +1 @wolnic  :(y)

For that CCCC with monastery the easiest approach would be

Quick Selectors tab - button Clear All
Expansions tab - select all
Edges tab, click [+] next to Square Tiles, select CCCC ( City, City, City, City )
Features tab - click [+] next to Regular Features, select Cloister / Monastery

And as you would see, all of them are grayed out, as the selector always displays selected tiles by the edges and expansions, if there are required features it would be not grayed out.

Scoring more then once the "same" road. Especially when it have an inn. Even better when combined with Mage meeple.
Yes, my friends don't like it, but I do. Very much  ;D ;D ;D
