Carcassonne Central: Advent Quiz MMXIX

(1/31) > >>

Hi all,

For those unaware of what it is really going on, I will just break it for you: Christmas is coming!!! So does Winter... at least in the Northern Hemisphere!

In preparation of the coming events, here at Carcassonne Central a lost is happening behind the scenes. Just have a look at the Meeple Council in session while discussing...

The Advent Calendar Quiz MMXIX

- Danisthirty: Well guys, what will be doing this year for the Advent Calendar? We are running out of time...
- Snowman: Lean back and chill! We have everything under control.
- Danisthirty: I should get started with our traditional Advent Calendar Quiz. You know, it is a  great opportunity to review what had happened over the course of the year within our little community, and to test our members' knowledge of who said what (or at least their ability to use the Search feature anyway).  ^-^
- Santa Claus: OK... Drink your tea or it will freeze.
- Gingerbread Man: What if we try something different this year? What if we ask questions about Carcassonne?
- Danisthirty: Yeah, Why not?
- Santa Claus: We could prepare 24 questions and post one each day...
- Snowman: Each of us could be in charge of questions with different levels of difficulty
- Gingerbread Man: Oooohhhh, that sounds terrific. I will prepare questions involving figures and/or tiles of one expansion only. Let's call it level 1.  ;)
- Snowman: Uhmm, I will do Level 2
- Santa Claus: Fine, I will be in charge of Level 3.
- Danisthirty: Awesome, and I will  pick Level 4... Don't faint when you see my qu...
- The Grinch: Well, well, well... Even though I was not invited I will prepare my share of questions. You know I love to ruin Christmas parties so thank you for the opportunity... I will take Level 5. Devilish ones... Mwahahaha!
- Santa Claus: Oh! This sounds lovely, right?
- Snowman: Er...
- Gingerbread Man: I'm hyperventilating...
- Danisthirty: Oh Geez! This is just getting started...
- Santa Claus: ...
- Snowman: Er...
- Gingerbread Man: I'm still hyperventilating...
- The Grinch: By the way, stop this gibberish and prepare the rules...
- Danisthirty: OK. I'll do it. In the meantime, guys, get your questions ready.
- Snowman: Er...
- Gingerbread Man: I'm still hyperventilating...
- The Grinch: You are lucky, you have a few days ahead to get yourselves together!
- Santa Claus: Would you care for a hot cocoa?
- The Grinch: No, thank you. I have no time for social calls. I have a lot of evil to do... Ciaaaaaaooooooooo!
- Snowman: Er...
- Gingerbread Man: I'm past hyperventilating... I'm fainting
- Santa Claus: Well, now more than ever we would need our members to help us solve all the questions no matter what. The Grinch cannot get the satisfaction of making us fail.
- Danisthirty: OK. OK. I will reserve a post to publish the rules once you recover from the shock and we can resume our meeting. A nice cuppa anyone?
- Santa Claus: So, let's get cracking!

What will be the outcome of the Meeple Council? We'll know soon.



- Danisthirty: Waiting for the rules, right? This space is reserved. I'll post them in no time. Thank you in advance for your patience...


- Danisthirty: Here you are a brief recap of the rules for the Carcassonne Central Advent Quiz!!! An excerpt of a summary of an excerpt...

--- Quote ---:red-meeple: Between the 1st and 24th December I will post a small Carcassonne scoring question each day (at a random time), to which the answer will be points scored by one or more players according to the question.

:yellow-meeple: When you know the answer, don't post it on this thread! :-X Because then everyone will know, and we don't want that. Instead, send Meepledrone a PM including the question number and your answer for that day. He won't respond to your PM (please don't be offended), but if you get the answer correct you will win one or more quiz points depending on how many others have answered it correctly before you:

1st correct answer5 points2nd correct answer4 points3rd correct answer3 points4th correct answer2 pointsAll subsequent correct answers   1 point
:green-meeple: There's no cut-off date for any particular questions so don't despair if you miss any. You can even answer all 24 questions on Christmas eve if you want, but don't expect to score big overall...

:blue-meeple: Once Christmas and boxing day are behind us, I will post the correct answers – one at a time – along with who won the big points (or indeed any points) and total scores per participant. This is where it gets really fun! :o :(y)

:black-meeple: The overall winner will be the person with the most points at the end of the quiz, but there is likely to be a small prize for everyone who answers all questions regardless of whether they manage to answer any of them correctly. It will be a surprise. O:-)

Any questions, please ask now. Otherwise, you can expect question 1 of 24 sometime on Saturday! O0

- Danisthirty: So now you know. I hired Meepledrone for menial administrative tasks. So be ready for some small Carcassonne scoring questions, one per day. The Meeple Council has already delivered and has selected 24 questions in various levels of complexity according to the number of expansions involved (from 1 to ...
- Gingerbread Man: My questions are the cutest ever!
- Danisthirty: Will you let me finish???
- Gingerbread Man: Uhmmm... OK
- Danisthirty: Were was I? Ah yes! The levels of difficulty go from 1 to 4
- The Grinch: Tsk tsk... You are wrong... I added Level 5... You will be overwhe...
- Danisthirty: Wait!! I hear your dog bark...
- The Grinch: ....OK... I'm off.
- Danisthirty: ...  ::)
- The Grinch: ...  ???
- Danisthirty: OK. Thank you for leaving! Uff...
- Snowman: (In the background) OMG! I left my Winter Edition questions outside the freezer and they melted...  :o
- Santa Claus: (In the background) Nooo, Not again...  >:(
- Snowman: (In the background) My rules in paper got soaked. What do I do now...?
- Santa Claus: (In the background) *Sigh* You can use WICA...  ::)
- Danisthirty: Everything is under control, I expect you all December 1st.... Ciaaaaaaoooooo!  ;D
