The red player does not place any meeples in Q#21, isn't it?

- Meepledrone: No meeples are placed this turn. Those guard meeples are in the global supply to be obtained by completing a cemetery. The players have no meeples left in their own supply.

Still no The Wheel of Fortune C3 question this year. Maybe in 2024 as Exp. 7?

And this quiz included until now only the blue, red and yellow players. How so? The other colors are reserved for Q#24 in order for Q#24 to include 12+ players?
