- Danisthirty: Yep, not much quarrel...
- The Grinch: Don't get me started!
- Fir Tree: (two fir cones drop) :o
- Danisthirty: Come on! Give us a break!
- Snowman: What will the contestants think?
- The Grinch: OK! I will give you one day, then I will wreak havoc!
- The Grinch: Not more than usual...
- The Grinch: You know! >:D
- The Grinch: But allow me to have some fun for a change!
- Danisthirty: It seems you never had fun!

Question #23: Danisthirty draws and places this tile on Red's behalf. How many points does each player score during this turn?

Note:
* This is a mid-game scenario. The game goes on for a few more turns.
* Yellow will score as many points as possible for their castle.

Question #24: The Grinch expects you to score this end-game scenario accurately and swiftly. He has the following questions:
a) How many points do the players score for the wonders? (1 point)
b) How many points does each player score for uncompleted features (fields will be scored later)? (1 point)
c) How many points do the barns score? (1 point)
d) How many points does Yellow score for the field at the top? (1 point)
e) How many points does each player score for the field on the right? (1 point)
f) How many points do the players score for the King and Robber Baron tiles? (1 point)
g) What other points should the players score that were not considered in the previous questions? (1 point)
h) What is the total scoring for each player? (1 point)

Note:
* No large meeples were used in this question.
* We assume this is a 3-player game.
* There are no meeples outside the area shown in the picture
* There are no completed cities outside the area shown in the picture.

Je pense que c’est quelquechose comme ça: 

Jaune a un champ situé au sommet. Combien de points gagne jaune avec ce champ?

(J’espere que c’est plus claire maintenant. Je parle seulement un petit peux de français.)

- Meepledrone: Dear all! I'll be pushing F5 non-stop on my meeple browser waiting for your remaining answers until December 29th.
- Meepledrone: Hope you have a great Christmas and that Santa brought you a lot of sensible gifts.
- The Grinch: If you were expecting a Spiel tile, rest assured I intercepted your request and you will get a crippled meeple instead.
- Meepledrone: Your Meepleness should go away... ahem!... and have some rest after yesterday's excruciatingly evil display.
- The Grinch: Oh, sure! Have to gather some strength!
- The Grinch: Evil cannot cease to spread...
- The Grinch: (going away) Did you see The Spell Circles affair? Nobody gives me the deserved credit... >:(
- Meepledrone: Ahem! Ahem! Where was I?
- Meepledrone: Ah yes! I will accept answers until December 29th 00:00 CET.
- Meepledrone: (whispering to himself) Sounds so professional!
- Meepledrone: So, have fun and celebrate!
- Meepledrone: Best wishes to everyone!
