- Santa Claus: Ladies and gentlemen!!!
- Fir Tree: (a bird chirps loudly) ;D
- Gingerbread Man: With incredible acrobats!
- Fir Tree: (a twig shakes)  :o
- Santa Claus: With beasts from all over he world!
- Fir Tree: (a branch bends) 8)
- Danisthirty: And an amazing ringmaster!
- Fir Tree: (a gentle breeze whistles) O0
- Gingerbread Man: Don't miss it!
- Blue Ringmaster:  Bravo! I couldn't have done it better!
- Fir Tree: (a bird pecks on its trunk)
- Blue Ringmaster: Yes, you were really amazing!
- Santa Claus: "The Meeple Circus is in town"... superb!
- Blue Ringmaster: Indeed!
- Blue Ringmaster: So clear! So full of energy!
- Blue Ringmaster: Wanna tour with us?
- The Grinch: (whispering to the ringmaster) Will you hire a family of crabs?



Question #13: Santa Claus places this tile on Blue's behalf. The tile has a circus space, so the big top has to move. The player would like to score the acrobat pyramid in this turn as well. How many points does each player score if the token under the big top was the one shown faceup?

Notes:
* This question does not use large meeples.
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.





PS: Added some notes just in case.

Why does the red player played so bad in Q16? And please do not call the fortune teller, as it is part of a PnP.
