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.

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

- Santa Claus: Ho ho ho!
- Snowman: No way! You made it!!!
- Danisthirty: Yes! You like it?
- Fir Tree: (a mild breeze shakes some twigs)  ^-^
- Snowman: Ahhhh! There's no place like home!!!
- The Grinch: (from the distance) Shut up, Dorothy!!!
- Snowman: Sorry?
- Danisthirty: Ha ha ha!
- Santa Claus: Have you seen that frozen river?
- Fir Tree: (a bird chirps) :o
- Santa Claus: Ideal for a dive after a hot sauna!!!
- Snowman: Yaaaay! So cozy!
- Danisthirty: Shall we try it?
- Snowman: The water? Right now?
- Santa Claus: Nope! The question!!!
- Snowman: Yes, pleeeeeaaaaaaseee!
- Fir Tree: (a branch moves) ;D



Question #9: Danisthirty places this tile with a crop circle on Yellow's behalf. The player has the following questions:
a) Can the player use the crop circle to remove meeples from the city before scoring the city? (1 point)
b) How many points does each player score from this tile placement during the game? (1 point)
c) Where does the Gingerbread Man move after the city is scored? (1 point)

Notes:
* This question only uses normal meeples. No large meeples were used.
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.
* All the cities not shown in the picture are also completed.





PS: Added clarification about the cities not shown in the picture.

Is this the first time when a river is featured in the Advent Calendar?
