- The Grinch: Are you ready for another question?
- The Grinch: Hope you are still busy with the previous ones!!!
- Santa Claus: You are merciless!
- The Grinch: Oooh! Thanks!
- The Grinch: I always try to do my worst!
- Danisthirty: Yes, we can tell!
- The Grinch: Especially you shouldn't open your little mouth! 
- The Grinch: Yesterday you showed some Winter muscle too...
- Danisthirty: Ehrrrr! Ahem! Ahem! :o
- Santa Claus: Please, shall we proceed? ::)
- The Grinch: Mwahahahaha!  Looking forward to it!!! >:D



Question #10: The Grinch places this tile on behalf of Yellow. He has several questions for you too:
a) Which features may trigger the castle occupied by Blue? (1 point)
b) Which features may trigger the castle occupied by Yellow? (1 point)
c) What is the minimum and maximum number of points the castle occupied by Blue can be worth? (1 point)
d) What is the minimum and maximum number of points the castle occupied by Yellow can be worth? (1 point)
e) How many points does each player score if Yellow wants Blue to score the least points for their castle? Blue  will try to score as many points as possible, of course. (1 point)
f) When distributing the gold ingots, what sequence should be followed if Yellow would like to get as many gold ingots as possible? (1 point)

Notes:
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.
* The player sequence is Blue - Red - Yellow.
* No meeple is placed on the completed road.





PS: Added clarification about no meeple being placed on the road.

What situation? The one where 1 monastery can subsist only with 1 monk, 2 shepherds, 2 vineyards and 8 sheep?

- Fir Tree: (a cold breeze shakes some twigs)  :o
- Snowman: I know, I know...
- Gingerbread Man: You are so excited when visiting wonders...
- The Grinch: Stop that nonsense! >:(
- Fir Tree: (a bird makes a mocking sound) :o
- Snowman: These pentominoes are so spacious...
- Gingerbread Man: Enough room for two meeples and a breakdancer...!
- Fir Tree: (a cone falls) :o
- The Grinch: We see you know the ropes pretty well...
- Yellow Meeple on Wonder: May I stand up? This is really unconfortable!
- The Grinch: Don't you dare!
- The Grinch: You have work to do!
- Yellow Meeple on Wonder: I have to go to the rest room!
- The Grinch: Can you please be more creative?
- Yellow Meeple on Wonder: The crabs are coming!
- The Grinch: Ha ha ha! That old trick!!!
- Tweedy Crab: (approaching with the other crabs) Shhhhhhhh!
- Tweety Crab: Shhhhhhhh!
- Fir Tree: I AM GROOT!!!!!
- The Grinch: (speeding away) Agghhhhh! Gotta gooooooo!
- Lilly Crab: Meeple harrassment is punishable!
- Joe Crab: Could you pleas proceed with the question?
- Snowman: Of course! Of course! :)



Question #12: The Snowman places this tile on Yellow's behalf. It is the last tile of the game, so the player has the following questions:
a) How many points does each player score considering the bets shown for each betting office during this turn?
b) How many points will score each player after the game?

Notes:
* We are considering the current rules for non-square tiles (C2/C3). If you use the C1 rules, please indicate so.
