kusinohki: @themerricat I have an entire laptop on the "keyboard shelf" of my tiny desk. the desk itself really needs some tidying
SymphonicLolita: our local board game cafe is stuck in limbo for a variety of reasons unfortunately
SymphonicLolita: lrrHAM
Shadowsoflife: no underdesk keyboard here @TheMerricat my mouse and keyboard are on my desk.
TheMerricat: Thanks chat.... :D
Laserbeaks_Fury: Flip it longways
Akaiatana: @TheMerricat I avoid keyboard trays and actively use two joined desks for lots of lateral space.
Sorator13: The underdesk tray broke and was placed on the floor next to the couch when I was growing up, and at one point I fell off the back of the couch onto it and bruised my ribs
Ukon_Cairns: @TheMerricat when i last had a desk with the undershelf i would lean on it until it removed itself from the desk... seems less than ideal.
Sorator13: so I've avoided keyboard trays every since :D
myknorman: I have a soft spot for tiny towns, so this looks sweet
saucemaster5000: yeah would really recommend this to folks who like small chill puzzle games that don't take long like tiny towns or railroad inc
lamina5432: this is a very good game
TheMerricat: :D so Chat I was wondering if I was the only one who didn't use keyboard trays it looks like it's actually the exact opposite. thanks for helping me out.
Akaiatana: @myknorman Like a velvet bag, or? :P
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Canal? sergeCanal
Pteraspidomorphi: My desk is just a big flat table
jessicaengle: sergeHi
Shadowsoflife: o/
Akaiatana: Curiosity question for the players tonight: Do any of you have cartography skills?
HadesLeprechaun: cluster means non-adjacent bunches
HadesLeprechaun: you'll probably end up with unfilled holes naturally, haha
TheMerricat: @Pteraspidomorphi My 'desk' is what used to be the kitchen table when I was growing up and demanded my parents give me when I grew up because they wanted to toss it in the garbage. It's a huge rectangle made of 2x4s glued together as far as I can tell. Since I'm in the middle of setting up a new computer after my laptop died I was wondering if I should consider adding a srew-in keyboard tray to it.
Pteraspidomorphi: This is very "Sagrada"
TemporallyAwry: !phrasing
LRRbot: Ever forward, never phrasing.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ever just think about holes?
Pteraspidomorphi: TheMerricat: I never liked those. Big table with everything on top is the best
KeytarCat: I got here just after rules, is this like that stained glass game?
saucemaster5000: sagrada? kinda
Laserbeaks_Fury: does everyone draw from the same card, or does each player draw a card
ArmadilloAL: Ben draws a card for everyone, so the former.
ArmadilloAL: Or whoever.

neisan2112: I don't hear any tunes
Pteraspidomorphi: Ben, the Gineering
Lord_Hosk: can anyone hear tunes?
Peregrine234: is it just me or is the music not playing?
ChargingFurret: I don't hear tunes either
SymphonicLolita: tunes are there
azninsect: The Cameron
Sorator13: It's playing, just soft
red_shoes_jeff: There's music?
Peregrine234: oh yeah turned volume up and i can hear it now
KeytarCat: Music is quiet, about at room tone level for me
Juliamon: Incoming Almighty [guitar riff]?
TheMerricat: @neisan2112 The music is just quiet enough that it's pure background music. If you can't hear it, try turing up the volume a smidge
azninsect: Big Ian
HadesLeprechaun: "my shield is a bird" like, with feathers? "...sure"
Sorator13: remember kids, get Max's consent before fucking!
Lord_Hosk: I turned it up to the point where the gentleman talking is loud and I can barely hear the music now.
kusinohki: Max effing? I hope Max consented first!
Getter404: Ian Big, buuuuuut
Pteraspidomorphi: Who's this Big Ian and what did he do to The Almighty Krancor?
LordZarano: !tiltyhouse
Earthenone: !card treetop village
LRRbot: Treetop Village | Land | Treetop Village enters the battlefield tapped. / {T}: Add {G}. / {1}{G}: Treetop Village becomes a 3/3 green Ape creature with trample until end of turn. It's still a land.
TemporallyAwry: According to Google Translate - Fuximus translates to "We Fled"
Science_and_Magic: @Earthenone Beat me to it
neisan2112: Monkey House?!
Caryotip2: pay 1g it becomes a 3 3 with trample
Jennie_Fuchsia: I can hear the music, but the it usually gets too repetitive for me
Laserbeaks_Fury: I remember there was a Panalyists that had a coat of arms question
Lord_Hosk: Music good now
coolbond: i would have put it in the corner for that early VP
TheMerricat: So these boards have 'dry erase' protectors for them? I've never seen a 'dry erase' pencil before... this game has already taught me new things :D
saucemaster5000: (note to folks at home, the great thing is if you have one of these pads -- which you can download -- you can play along)
Sorator13: oh, that's an excellent idea!
CAKHost: Wait a second... you are all just playing Tetris! :P
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL turned the music up a bit.
Laserbeaks_Fury: do they have to be all one type of terrain?
Pteraspidomorphi: CAKHost: Blokus? :D

TheMerricat: https://www.thunderworksgames.com/cartographers.html for anyone looking for a download for the maps to play along.
Science_and_Magic: From CandleKeep Mysteries?
ArmadilloAL: As Paul said, they cannot be mixed.
Shadowsoflife: paper towns
aerohydra: agloe, new york
ArmadilloAL: It's either a green pentomino or a red one.
Earthenone: all trees, no top village
Akaiatana: They're drawing Copical forests
Dog_of_Myth: Gnoll Raid!
Earthenone: lets rotate the hosts!
Shadowsoflife: @aerohydra DFTBA
CAKHost: Rotate the bodies!
HadesLeprechaun: solo players start in the corner shown on the upper right, following the rotation, and trying to place the symbol without rotating until it fits
TemporallyAwry: !so Gnoll Kappa
TheAinMAP: TombRaid
Earthenone: this gnoll is brought to us by Raid Shadow Legends
camille7_ttv: this game looks cool. are they going to be playing any more after this one or is this the last game of the stream?
kusinohki: I want to make a raid bug spray joke, but nothing comes to mind...
Dog_of_Myth: Gnoll Raid brought to you by Yeenoghu
Juliamon: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 25:13.
Shadowsoflife: their just regular gnolls
camille7_ttv: baller
fjordsword: Hey Nelson ... playing from the store right now!

red_shoes_jeff: lrrJUDGE lrrSPOOP
Dog_of_Myth: Oh, that's horrible
dumbo3k: welp, thats a new nightmare
Laserbeaks_Fury: it's okay
kusinohki: I mean, that river is okay...
margieargie: sergeCanal
SnackPak_: sergeCanal
ArmadilloAL: I mean, this river is pretty great, but if I dam it up and cut it in half, I get ONE COIN.
Earthenone: canals are the funnels of the sea
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Jo made Serge a Canal Cake.
ChaoticObserver: We keeping track of the countdown to the end of the season?
Akaiatana: @Paul it's a funnel cake that's very moist
dumbo3k: to be fair, the C and L are largely identical there
ArmadilloAL: Luckily for Nelly, that empty space still scores for scoring condition D, so it's negated for two of the four seasons!
Laserbeaks_Fury: is it -1 for each adjacent empty space, or -1 for each monster space that had an empty adjacent space
Earthenone: everyone chose to moisten their gnolls
HadesLeprechaun: is it possible to stack the explore cards so we can see how close we are to ending Spring, or will that just not really work with the camera setup?
ArmadilloAL: -1 for each empty space that is adjacent to at least one monster space.
Earthenone: wasent this piece banned in hatris?
Dog_of_Myth: Ah, the Tetris piece that went to get milk...
Heckhoundbolt: I like how a monster attack is a permanent feature of the region. Like nothing can go there ever again
Laserbeaks_Fury: whats the difference between a coin and a star?
neisan2112: Oh right
ArmadilloAL: A star is a victory point. A coin *scores* one star/point at the end of each season.
HadesLeprechaun: coins are scored as stars at the end of every season, stars are just the points
Juliamon: oh, these are the Shrek markers
DaxStrife: 7 minutes in RED
Heckhoundbolt: Ah yes
Science_and_Magic: Shrek
TemporallyAwry: Don't Talk about Shrek
Lord_Hosk: What happened Ben?
ArmadilloAL: So a coin earned in Spring is effectively 4 points, 3 points in Summer, 2 points in Autumn, and 1 point in Winter.
Ukon_Cairns: please dont eat the tasty tasty markers
Peregrine234: i quite like cam's little pictograms for the different types of areas
Laserbeaks_Fury: So why would you want a monster square? Are there score cards that use them?
KeytarCat: Nelly puts a gnoll in the mountains
HadesLeprechaun: put a bigger monster in the mountains to hunt the smaller ones
margieargie: Give the gnolls a friend!
HadesLeprechaun: introduce invasive species
ArmadilloAL: Yep, nothing in this setup gives Nelly anything for putting a specific type there - even monsters - so might as well ad the monster to the square for the lulz.
kusinohki: hamlet - scores bonus points if built next to an ophelia
Sorator13: @kusinohki LUL
ChargingFurret: did ben get an extra coin?
Heckhoundbolt: Jesus
red_shoes_jeff: Did Ben not take his coin?
ArmadilloAL: Ben did take his coin.
camille7_ttv: how do the A B C D cards work?
Mazrae: Are they just drawing DND maps??
Sorator13: debating between blocking off the last of my monster raid, or putting the farmland by my water...
ArmadilloAL: Oh, apparently there another coin. Sorry.
ArmadilloAL: Ben is too wealthy for me to keep up with.
LoadingReadyRun: @Sorator13 are you playing from home?
SoaringDragon42: No, Cam, I love yours!
SkylerRingtail: Oh man, playing along at home would be fun
Laserbeaks_Fury: I remember when this was all farm land as far the eye could see. Old man Peabody owned all of this. He had this crazy idea about breeding pine trees.

HadesLeprechaun: I am also playing with my physical copy at home!
Sorator13: Ah, that was it! I was scrambling to get set up, so I probably didn't do that one right.
spinebustertee: this reminds me a lot of Tiny Towns
TheAwkes: Bingo if you could blame your own choices for losing.
HadesLeprechaun: 12!
Sorator13: I got 11! but again, probably did the monster not quite right
Lord_Hosk: im at a trillion!
BrowneePoints: is this Castle in the Sky?
BrowneePoints: man the music sounds familiar
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are the season always the same?
red_shoes_jeff: I got 3!
fjordsword: 14
HadesLeprechaun: @Laserbeaks_Fury random from small decks of cards
Dread_Pirate_Westley: I think I did something wrong. I have 7+2i
Peregrine234: found the rulebook and was looking through it, in solo mode you are given a title at the end of the game–ranging from legendary cartographer to oblivious inkdrinker. which, what an insult
margieargie: I'm not playing, but I feel like I'm scoring high just watching
ArmadilloAL: @Laserbeaks_Fury Yes. Spring is 8 arbitrary time units long, summer and autumn are 7, winter is 6.
Sorator13: @Dread_Pirate_Westley LUL
LoadingReadyRun: @BrowneePoints nope. This is just some copyright free "medieval tavern music"
ArmadilloAL: And they always score A/B, B/C, C/D, then D/A. What those letters represent (the scoring cards) are what changes from game to game.
Sorator13: yeah, this is a very cool game
spinebustertee: oblivious inkdrinker sounds like something graham would say at the start of a crack a pack
DaxStrife: Coming soon to LRR: "Can't Draw Maps Club."
Shadowsoflife: @BrowneePoints It almost sounds like down by the river in BG3
HadesLeprechaun: yes, monster card gets removed when played, but if its not used, it just stays in
HadesLeprechaun: and they might not all show up
Laserbeaks_Fury: Winter is coming
spinebustertee: Hinterland, where Twitch Chat lives
camille7_ttv: oh so only two of the bonuses are available per season?
HadesLeprechaun: @camille7_ttv yes, AB, BC, CD, then DA
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh I see, coins are worth victory points, but they are weighted more valuable at the beginning of the game
ArmadilloAL: And for reference, there are 13 cards in the explore deck (including Temple Ruins), before adding one Monster card per season.
camille7_ttv: @HadesLeprechaun cool so the type of land (except for monster) only matters for that?
Earthenone: victory points that accrew interest
Laserbeaks_Fury: 13 cards total, or 13 cards selected at random from a larger pool?
Sorator13: Enclosed another mountain!
ArmadilloAL: 13 cards total.
Sorator13: 4 coins for me now
saucemaster5000: there is a digital version yeah. But it's super nice that the company just lets you print the boards from their site
Laserbeaks_Fury: I mean, you could just use graph paper
kusinohki: just had an image of playing this on a light bright
PMAvers: Insert Drums in the Deep gif
jessieimproved: Oh I know where I've heard this song before, in a Blue Turtle animation
BrowneePoints: Heart and Soul
HadesLeprechaun: @camille7_ttv yep, land types only matter for scoring cards
loufghyslaufey: I've never even heard this tune in my life, Ben!
Lord_Hosk: Listen, I've seen the great lakes, and that rive is at best, an above average river
Lord_Hosk: Ian did a woopsi
Heckhoundbolt: Ian sized his wrong
Welbog: Can Ian do that?
Welbog: Ian hacking the planet
ogier300: Did Ian just do a 3 square in 2 squares?
saucemaster5000: pencils are a coward's weapon
Heckhoundbolt: Get the white out
ChargingFurret: that river just exists in non Euclidean space
Welbog: I know some writers who use pencils and they are all cowards.
KeytarCat: I am prepared for game 2 (and maybe 3!)
Heckhoundbolt: So a swamp
Laserbeaks_Fury: it's a 480p Stream Kappa
Kaaosa: is there a digital version of this game? I love coloring in squares
Sorator13: so take your coin back, Ian?
NotCainNorAbel: Math on hard mode
Welbog: At uni they didn't let us do tests in anything but pen, so math in pen was our normal.
loufghyslaufey: right, Cameron. "Hugging", they said.
Pteraspidomorphi: Nobody expects the forgotten forest
margieargie: Ohhhh, right, that forest, thanks for reminding me...
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh hey, I always forget that's in the deck
loufghyslaufey: "This is how we hug our friends", they said.
KeytarCat: a coin usually looks like 2 squares' worth
ChargingFurret: i missed set up, is mirroring a shape okay, or just rotations?
Sorator13: Mirroring is good!
iiieye: The highest math I had to take in uni was called "explorations in mathematics"
Sorator13: okay, how does this work solo again?
coolbond: Love Kobolds
ChargingFurret: bottom left corner, rotate the direction on the card?
dumbo3k: Kobolds! Love those little guys!
Sorator13: starting in the bottom left corner, is that what that means?
Heckhoundbolt: I think these Kobolds were here first
HadesLeprechaun: @Sorator13 start in the bottom right corner (as shown on the upper right), then follow rotation on the card, trying to place the symbol with rotating the symbol
Sorator13: bottom right, or bottom left?
lamina5432: this game is the definition of i can do it better
HadesLeprechaun: if it doesn't fit after going all the way up the side, try again after moving one square in from the left
fjordsword: Well this WAS gonna be a good round
Science_and_Magic: Kay I've just given the rules a full read now, this is a really neat game! I might have to consider getting this for my family
HadesLeprechaun: @Sorator13 this card shows the bottom left
DaxStrife: Nope, nothing in the rulebook that says a dog can't be a cartographer.
Sorator13: okay, thought so. thanks!
Science_and_Magic: Although tit might draw myself and mother a bit mad for leaving gaps that can't be filled.
Lord_Hosk: Nelly was just kind there
Science_and_Magic: *it might drive
HadesLeprechaun: oh yay! I can finish a second 6-group town

kusinohki: is it possible late game to be in a position where a shape won't fit anywhere? what happens then?
ArmadilloAL: Fun Fact: If a ruins chape comes up, but a player's ruins have all been covered covered (or they can't make a legal play on any ruin they have left), they don't place that shape at all, but instead place a 1x1 of their choice anywhere on their board.

Lord_Hosk: only 480 billion for me this time
Sorator13: Monsters are -1 for each monster tile that isn't blocked in?
saucemaster5000: My score came out as "purple." I hate this calculator
Sorator13: not for each empty tile touching the monster?
HadesLeprechaun: i also ate monster damage to get a second town
ChargingFurret: I only scored 1 agrovado's number this time
fjordsword: -1 for each empty space adjacent to a monster space
Sorator13: ty
HadesLeprechaun: 39 that round! I got 20 from canal lake, there were so many rivers and plains to place that round
Sorator13: then I got 21 that round for a total of 32
Shadowsoflife: nice
Welbog: I'm at (1±√5)/2 points
spinebustertee: orthagonal only
Sorator13: I misplaced one of my markers and used a different one and confused myself, so that last big water tile is very much in an unhelpful place, lol
HadesLeprechaun: I have covered a lot of my ruins, so if those come up I might be screwed
ArmadilloAL: Pro Tip: Canal Lake no longer scores this game, so rivers and farmlands are no longer relevant.
Heckhoundbolt: Here be monsters
Shadowsoflife: the first draw?
KeytarCat: Bugbear pause button
fjordsword: What the heck with the shuffling Ben!
Sorator13: Yeah, programming the scoring would be interesting
lamina5432: when my group plays we actually flip b down to show no more scoring
Akaiatana: Paul's area is the If Fen
Sorator13: I like that the players are matching styles for the monsters
HadesLeprechaun: this monster -may- create a lot of negative points for me, ahah
Welbog: Aren't we all
Shadowsoflife: *shakes fist* HINTERLANDS
niccus: great for filling up the bugbear
saucemaster5000: that's a nasty one for me, shit
BigDaddyBland87: @niccus that was my thought as well
Sorator13: yeah, this helped a lot against the bugbears
Sorator13: for em
Sorator13: *me
HadesLeprechaun: this doesnt help at all for MY bugbears, my bugbears dont care about this river at all
niccus: sorry for those with waterproof bugbears
cartoon_creampuff: I love this game studio!

Sorator13: building houses around them? yeah, that's gonna go Great
Sorator13: @KeytarCat yep!
Dog_of_Myth: Yep @KeytarCat
KeytarCat: neat and cool
Welbog: How does the cauldrons work?
camille7_ttv: what happens if you cant place ruins?
LoadingReadyRun: @Welbog empty spaces sourounded on all 4 sides
ArmadilloAL: You get a Rift Lands @camille7_ttv
ArmadilloAL: And place a 1x1 of your choice anywhere.
RvLeshrac: At any time, if a card can't be played, you get a 1x1 Riftland anywhere.
Welbog: OK, so Ben is really killing it with chauldrons.
camille7_ttv: @Welbog chauldrons?
RvLeshrac: The exception, I believe, being Monsters, where if you can't play them on someone's sheet you give them a 1x1 monster. But I haven't played in a bit.
Welbog: Who even knows how to spell? Not me.
Fanklok: Steamed hamlets
saucemaster5000: It's an albany expression
HadesLeprechaun: dangit! I considered placing a single house somewhere to get another 6-town just in case that 5 house one showed up
cartoon_creampuff: Which version of cartographers are the crew playing tonight?
Mazrae: Need a cartographers qwerpline edition
RvLeshrac: There's a "big" box expansion, which has Heroes that can counter monsters, and there are several map expansions with some extra terrain, and there's an expansion with merchants who have items you can spend coins on.
Sorator13: I have finally enclosed the kobolds from last season... bugbears, not so much
Heckhoundbolt: Especially when mirrored shapes are fine
RvLeshrac: I would love to see Adam and Beej, at least, play Roll Player Adventures.
Science_and_Magic: this'd be a cool game to play in lego, but I bet you could almost just repurpose a set of Blokus to play with physical components instead of just pen and paper
Sorator13: I got 21 again this round, total of 53
Science_and_Magic: Or like 3d printing a board and pieces
LoadingReadyRun: @Science_and_Magic I've seen people do that
RvLeshrac: @Science_and_Magic If you do that, you're almost playing Era: Medieval Age
HadesLeprechaun: 24, managed to get rid of a lot of monsters with that very last placement
Sorator13: I took a gamble on getting another village card as the last card, and it did not pay off
saucemaster5000: I'm at "purple" again. I'm wondering if this isn't a calculator
James_the_Dabbler: Everyone playing along in chat makes this so wholesome
Mazrae: How these are starting to look, seems like Minecraft biomes
Sorator13: yeah, I'm gonna get a fair bit from woods
RvLeshrac: For extra fun, you can calculate your solo score by subtracting the amounts on the cards, and then weep.
cartoon_creampuff: Does this mean we'll see roll player in the future
HadesLeprechaun: I'm gonna get like nothing from Cauldrons, only got 1 this round, banking on coins and hopefully some good forests
Shadowner: people cartog during the day
corefluxx: Cheer100
Heckhoundbolt: “It’s all white sir”
Science_and_Magic: Like Dr. Stone as they're mapping out the land with a hot air balloon. It all looks white once winter arrives
Sorator13: I also got another mountain
LoadingReadyRun: @cartoon_creampuff never really heard about Roll Player before, but it seems like it is neat
saucemaster5000: roll player is fun, but honestly this is probably the best game in the series
Lord_Hosk: What happens if you get a monster, but it can't fit?
KeytarCat: "Rift spoofing"
DaxStrife: Nelly found the sub-ocean?
Welbog: A 1/1 creature token
James_the_Dabbler: @Welbog Pretty classic goblin tbh

Science_and_Magic: Die Hard 3: Caldo Harder
saucemaster5000: board games are great for ridiculous phrases you'd never hear otherwise
Science_and_Magic: Or Caldo Hard
Pteraspidomorphi: Caldo is
Akaiatana: Caldo Lanrissian
saucemaster5000: cam is thinking of caldo verde
Pteraspidomorphi: It just means "broth"
Science_and_Magic: "I'm a nihilistic wolf shepherd with an anchor and nothing to lose"
Science_and_Magic: Tabletop with Wil Wheaton
Science_and_Magic: Quote from Nika Harper playing Harbour
Lord_Hosk: Ian made another oopsi
Heckhoundbolt: Ian made his too short again
Shadowner: yeah italian for hot, portegese for broth
RvLeshrac: Well, not exactly fair, some of you may be setting next to more malicious monster placers.
Mazrae: Ian it's a four line not three
ChargingFurret: i'm sure that you could computationally optimize this game, but i'm also sure that it's much more intensive than most computers can handle
fjordsword: Final Score is 94
Sorator13: 17 from sentinel woods :D
Akaiatana: Make the minecraft players play this and watch them frustrate over being off by one constantly
2stepz: cauldrons are anti-tetris
saucemaster5000: 92 for me (I mean... "Purple")
James_the_Dabbler: @Akaiatana Oh Serge would be so good at this game
Sorator13: 35 points that round, final total of 88
RvLeshrac: What are the star values on those cards?
TheMerricat: Of course there are academic papers written on how to optimally place tetris pieces...

TheMerricat: Also chat... if you like this enough that you are interested in playing it online, a FREE _LICENSED_ version is up on Meeple. https://www.happymeeple.com/en/
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL FYI, for those playing at home, we are going to use the same side of the board (Not the other side with the pit)
James_the_Dabbler: So if we are playing at home, how are we handling monsters?
ArmadilloAL: @KeytarCat I downloaded it and uploaded a screenshot of the board here: https://imgur.com/XNo3Hqf
KeytarCat: @ArmadilloAL clever!
Sorator13: @James_the_Dabbler The top right of the monster card shows a corner (bottom left, bottom right, top left, or top right). Starting from the indicated corner, try to place the monster tile as it is shown, not rotated. Move clockwise or counter clockwise as shown on the bottom left of the card until you can place it; if you can't place it along that line, move over one line and keep trying
TheMerricat: @James_the_Dabbler The 'official rule' - Monsters are placed using the clockwise/counterclockwise spiral until you find a space that is either all above ground or all below ground and has a continuous path back to the gate. = from a forum post by the dev.
ArmadilloAL: That sounds like one of the map pack maps, @TheMerricat
ArmadilloAL: Not the base game.
TheMerricat: never mind it looks like the quote I took was from an expasion pack version of the game... not appicable to the vanilla game.
Sorator13: My final map that game: https://i.imgur.com/wsgWneb.jpg
James_the_Dabbler: Solid. I'm gonna go print a sheet
HadesLeprechaun: My final map: https://imgur.com/a/3Cb2J0u

HadesLeprechaun: Also Silver & Gold, another tetrisy one
red_shoes_jeff: Don't think I'll have quite enough time for the next game before work. Might as well bounce now. Peace.
Shadowsoflife: line your mine with E Y E S
Heckhoundbolt: Check for eyes, welcome to Virginia
Kumakaori: ink** the pun is quintessential.
saucemaster5000: sorry, yes, railroad ink
RvLeshrac: Note that if you order Cartographers from Thunderworks directly, you get a Skills expansion for free, with special abilities you can pay gold to use.
Pteraspidomorphi: So how do you score coins again?
RvLeshrac: You get coins by surrounding a mountain.
saucemaster5000: each coin is worth 1 point a round
Pteraspidomorphi: Right but what are they good for?
Pteraspidomorphi: Oh, thanks
saucemaster5000: (so you want them early)
Pteraspidomorphi: That makes sense
RvLeshrac: Once the four sides have some sort of terrain, you get a coin, and then every round you get a point for each coin you have.
Diabore: no dwarves here
Sorator13: the largest cluster that is not touching a mountain
Sorator13: also you can get coins from some cards if you take the coin option!
RvLeshrac: Alternately, the optional terrain on cards that have an option.
RvLeshrac: Yeah.

Heckhoundbolt: There are custom maps and the ability to make your own on the website
HadesLeprechaun: MUST be a square though
thrythlind: ah
Akaiatana: As per Cameron's request: Agnostic.
Sorator13: Lost Barony seems very difficult to do well
camille7_ttv: im confused
camille7_ttv: what does c do?
tabstopv: the size of your largest square that's filled in
tabstopv: (side length, not area)
ArmadilloAL: If you have a 5x5 square (and it's your largest), score 15 points. If you have a 4x4, score 12 points. And so on.
Sorator13: @camille7_ttv Look at the largest square - must be an exact square. You get 3 points for each space along one of its edges.
ArmadilloAL: If you somehow fill in the entire board, score 33 points.
HadesLeprechaun: 2x2 scores 6, 3x3 scores 9, 4x4 scores 12
James_the_Dabbler: If you get ruins, you have to build on a ruins correct?
camille7_ttv: oohhh
camille7_ttv: cool
Sorator13: @James_the_Dabbler Yes, if possible; if not, you place a wild space (which also must be on a ruin if possible, or anywhere if not)
ArmadilloAL: Okay, I fished out my copy. I'm playing this time.

Peregrine234: cmon farmland
Welbog: What's the shape with the coin?

Welbog: 2x1?
Pteraspidomorphi: It's in the bottom center
ArmadilloAL: It's on the overlay bottom center.
Welbog: Aha!
Science_and_Magic: Plus sign is too much of a pain in the ass for me
HadesLeprechaun: + gives me a 3x3 square, so, taking it
saucemaster5000: but Ian, bonus is money for vegas
Heckhoundbolt: “Sir, we have landed on an island
Shadowsoflife: again?
KeytarCat: Shounen explanation :P
thrythlind: there's looking to be a lot of water on this map
saucemaster5000: a lot of worthless water after tis round
Akaiatana: @thrythlind Moist of it!
Science_and_Magic: Time to screw myself over
Sorator13: so start from the bottom left and move up
HadesLeprechaun: yep!
SkylerRingtail: Actually not terrible
HadesLeprechaun: and can't rotate the shape (for solo players)
ArmadilloAL: Ah yes, the bottom-left corner. Where I have absolutely nothing.
KeytarCat: Oh no
Peregrine234: welp wasn't using that corner anyways
saucemaster5000: damn I'm too much of a jerk to NOT put the kobolds in the absolute worst spot for myself
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL kobold onslaught aka Koboldslaught
Science_and_Magic: Oh that's how you solo a monster card
Welbog: Do we have to leave as much room around it as possible?
Peregrine234: i think the priority is to not rotate it?
James_the_Dabbler: This wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it might be
HadesLeprechaun: @Science_and_Magic the starting location is the corner shown on the upper right corner of the card
James_the_Dabbler: It sits right up in the upper left corner for me
TemporallyAwry: Pretend? PrideLaugh ... if only.
RvLeshrac: The Solo rules are designed to explicitly NOT do that, because solo is incredibly hard.
niccus: wake your shoulder devil up
Sorator13: in the upper right, it shows the corner you start in; for this one, it's the bottom left.
MrSarkhan: LUL
RvLeshrac: At the end of this set of scoring cards, the Solo penalty is -82 points.
Sorator13: so you start there and (since it says clowise on the left side of the card), move up until you can place it exactly as shown on the card

niccus: anyone took the monarchy
Peregrine234: i'm one corner off a 4x4 so riftlands please?
ArmadilloAL: It's nice! I also have the rest of my board in omnishambles.
SkylerRingtail: Yo Baron, we can dig it. The ruins, that is
dumbo3k: such a nice barony. Would be a shame if some Kobolds happened to it
James_the_Dabbler: It's 3 now or 4 laters
Science_and_Magic: Bigger city for me
HadesLeprechaun: I'll be real I kinda totally forgot about the monsters I placed just a few rounds ago
ArmadilloAL: The four scoring tiles are always one Forest, one Water/Farm, one City, and one Filled Thingy.
saucemaster5000: I am... NOT doing well this game
Peregrine234: wait diagonals don't count for the great city being next to mountains right?
Science_and_Magic: Almost had a 5x5 barony
DeChunkandFriends: Remember, adjacency only counts in cardinal directions
2stepz: Does barony include mountains?
HadesLeprechaun: barony includes mountains, yes
James_the_Dabbler: I got 28 this round
SoaringDragon42: 1 off a 4x4. Curses! 27 this round

forlornhope22: messed up I'm 41 actually.
SkylerRingtail: @RvLeshrac My rival!
Science_and_Magic: Let's see those forest cards~
HadesLeprechaun: this set of scoring cards is MUCH harder, I think
Sorator13: I went hard on the Granary that round
RvLeshrac: And yes you lose one point for each empty space adjacent to a monster square, but you don't double-count empty squares if they're adjacent to multiple monster squares.
Sorator13: LUL
Welbog: Except for self-satisfaction!
Xiff_: The stakes have never been lower
DeChunkandFriends: Ben's counting is just going to bother me the rest of the stream, I need to keep my keyboard away from me.

Akaiatana: It's a weird hill to die on
Welbog: Mine's 15
Pharmacistjudge: the fantasy HOA
Sorator13: this is why you just enclose all the mountains with other tiles :D
Science_and_Magic: At this point I'm covering my mountains to avoid them touching my villiages
Science_and_Magic: Starting top left
Science_and_Magic: Gnolls
RvLeshrac: Remember that you don't rotate it when placing it on a solo board, ever.
Pteraspidomorphi: This is not so bad, ends up close to the other one
Shadowsoflife: regular gnoll, regular gnoll
BrowneePoints: Gnoll Fielding, a Goth Hyena who makes Avante-Garde Comedy
HadesLeprechaun: oh this got put in a bad spot, oof
SkylerRingtail: Oh noooo that's bad
Welbog: My knolls are teaming up with the other purple guys
HadesLeprechaun: same
Science_and_Magic: Thankfully my left flank ahs been totally empty all game
James_the_Dabbler: Ugh this one is REAL bad for me
saucemaster5000: yeah I got a big purple snake now
KeytarCat: That actually isn't bad for me
Welbog: It's making it hard to make a big square. Dang gnolls.
HadesLeprechaun: I need to spend a couple rounds taking care of these monsters, they're becoming a real problem
SkylerRingtail: Ian got done dirty
saucemaster5000: more of a knoll-bad neighbors
NotCainNorAbel: The true monster was Nelly all along
spinebustertee: if you surround them by farms, will they be a Grassy Gnoll?
saucemaster5000: YES
Peregrine234: oh thank the gods
RvLeshrac: Note that Mountains are always "filled"
Pteraspidomorphi: If an empty square is adjacent to 2 monsters, does it count as -2?
Science_and_Magic: Nice! The rift complete my 5x5 barony!
ArmadilloAL puts a 1x1 monster right next to the Gnolls
saucemaster5000: @ArmadilloAL hell yeah
RvLeshrac: @Pteraspidomorphi No, only count each empty space as -1
ArmadilloAL: @Pteraspidomorphi No.
Pteraspidomorphi: Thanks
Science_and_Magic: Could use these trees
Shadowsoflife: t----BUCK

Science_and_Magic: I need this W to cancel out some monsters
HadesLeprechaun: bens taking a bunch of monsters, currently
RvLeshrac: 28 on that one for me.
Pteraspidomorphi: I completely messed up my baronies with one single misplaced forest that proved impossible to map around
SkylerRingtail: Argh, 1 block off a 6x6 barony
Shadowsoflife: oof
RvLeshrac: So 65 total
Welbog: 31 for me, mostly due to forests.
Pteraspidomorphi: (big T)
spinebustertee: 28 this round, putting me to 58
Welbog: 67 total so far
ArmadilloAL: 31 for me, up to 71 total
DeChunkandFriends: Cam is only losing 5 from monsters, right?
Peregrine234: 32 this round, 73 total
RvLeshrac: I had to give up some points to close off monsters.
RvLeshrac: And yes, Cam is -5
James_the_Dabbler: 31 for me, at 71
Ctabbe: 22 bringing me up to 60
KeytarCat: 24 that round
Science_and_Magic: 29 points again this round, bringing me to 68! One off of nice!
saucemaster5000: 32 bringing me to 62
RvLeshrac: Ian -9, Ben -6, Nelson -6
Sorator13: 33 that round for me, 68 total so far
RvLeshrac: Those monsters really hurting this time.
Sorator13: did some good work with forests
HadesLeprechaun: 34, did some monster wrangling that round
Pteraspidomorphi: So the barony is 3 per unit? Hard to tell
saucemaster5000: oh wait! no, 34! dang good round, needed that
SkylerRingtail: Round: 20/31 (easy/hard). Totals: 45/69 (nice)
Sorator13: @Pteraspidomorphi Yes
ArmadilloAL: 3x (the length of your largest square)
SoaringDragon42: 29, for 67 total
Science_and_Magic: So for winter, no more barony, put those forests in empty rows and columns
Pteraspidomorphi: I see, thanks
Xiff_: 29, which puts me at 59
Science_and_Magic: And avoid those mountains with your villages
SkylerRingtail: My easy-mode side is beyond saving. Chasm city is going great though
forlornhope22: 66
Welbog: Thicc barony
Peregrine234: i'm surprised how well i've been doing considering i have never played (or heard of) this game before lo
KeytarCat: 60 flat
Welbog: I feel like enclosing a single mountain would have been smart. Now they're not worth as much.
RvLeshrac: Cameron allows Exxon to run ships through the barony just to stock his ponds with rich crude.
Sorator13: @Peregrine234 I feel like I'm doing badly and then I scored better than most of these folks, so that's fun
spinebustertee: Water Barony, natural enemy of Card Kingdom
Sorator13: @spinebustertee LUL
Science_and_Magic: Canadian Praries
2stepz: Kansas... Nebraska...
ArmadilloAL: Cam's Kobolds are more like Kosubmissives at this point.
SkylerRingtail: Oh damn it, I just realized the Barony doesn't have to originate from the edge of the map
SymphonicLolita: -40c to +40c temp difference babeyyy
Sorator13: @SkylerRingtail look, it's a hard one to wrap your head around
Science_and_Magic: DAMMIT
Welbog: Damn damn damn
Sorator13: so this starts in the top right for us and moves down
Science_and_Magic: Top right
Peregrine234: the first monster that i can't just put in the corner lol
Its_VeeBot: Bugbear Assault, Let's Rotate the Players!
Welbog: Oh damn, this one is bad.
Sorator13: this one is perfectly in the corner leaving only two open spaces, nice
Welbog: Took my main remaining empty space.
Science_and_Magic: That just ate into all the space I could've grown my greqat city
TemporallyAwry: There's the WWII game.
James_the_Dabbler: This one also hurts
KeytarCat: It gave me a mountain coin
ArmadilloAL: Oh heck, that's going to prevent me from joining my two city-halves into a Great City.
Shadowsoflife: Raid drives
forlornhope22: it hurts us.
HadesLeprechaun: this is a lot of negative points for me if I can't deal with it, oof
RvLeshrac: Cartographers: Heroes greatly expands the monster selection
SoaringDragon42: gave me a mountain and didn't change my monster score
Xiff_: Well, that ruins my great city
spinebustertee: Bugbears, aka thicc gay entymologists.
Welbog: I'm worried about city tiles touching mountains. Ben, no draw cities.
KeytarCat: The mobile game is Raid: Call of the Arbiter this season
Science_and_Magic: Well I had to be punished for my lucky breaks with the first monster raids
Sorator13: Iam please
Sorator13: *Ian
camille7_ttv: is this the last game of the day?
betweenmyself: Bugbears are back! ohnoAlf In POG form!
ArmadilloAL: Costing me 5 points directly and probably at least 5 more if we don't get Rift Lands.
thrythlind: hobgoblins are
BrowneePoints: Hobgoblins are
Science_and_Magic: Head goblins
BrowneePoints: Bugbears are the muscle
James_the_Dabbler: Lucky for me I have plenty of city space but I have *got* to stop this hemmoraging
thrythlind: bugbears are sort of lazy by rep
forlornhope22: that's hobgoblins.
James_the_Dabbler: That's a hobgoblin
WiJohn: Bugbears are the sneaky big goblins
Tiber727: Bugbears travel in double file lines, to hide their numbers.
Its_VeeBot: What do you do with these hobgoblins?
BrowneePoints: Bugbears are also smart, but they're a bit lazy, but they are REAL strong
Its_VeeBot: They are over here, they are over there
thrythlind: bugbears are sneaky and assassins
thrythlind: and shocktroops
WiJohn: Man that was a lot of umm actually
Its_VeeBot: Those darn hobgoblins are everywhere
DeChunkandFriends: Hobgoblins get to be military commanders. One of my favorite characters was one.
Shadowsoflife: and they have reach
Sorator13: oh hey, the bugbears enclosed a mountain for me, lol
Science_and_Magic: I can pacify some monsters with this, but can't advance my city
RvLeshrac: Well, that at least counters the bugbear point loss.
betweenmyself: AUGH! We’re being invaded by the Fishing Village! riffScream
ArmadilloAL: At this point, my grid is looking like I'm trying to *maximize* my monster losses.
niccus: i think my childhood was shaped by venetian snares's entire album dunking winnepeg
Welbog: I thought, shoot, then I realized I could rotate it.
HadesLeprechaun: noooo
Science_and_Magic: More useless water and farmland
Shadowsoflife: guess what more water
thrythlind: dnd goblinoid (by reputation) - Goblins - swarm/fodder, Hobgoblins - militaristic regimented, Bugbears - layabout assassins and shocktroops
codatski: Reminds me of my friend's Bugbear Bear-barian Barbarian/Druid he played years ago. It was a delight.
Pteraspidomorphi: *sweats*
ArmadilloAL: Oh thank God I can't place that.
Welbog: Compleated my first mountain.
saucemaster5000: damn it I can place it in one entirely useless place
Science_and_Magic: My place is so flooded
Peregrine234: come on please riftlands (or a ruin i can't place) i'm one mountain away to adding 8 to my city
HadesLeprechaun: I have one spot I can place it that completely ruins another possibility
404namesnotfound: This round of cartographers, taking place in scenic Atlantis.
saucemaster5000: I need an L...
Shadowsoflife: @codatski Nice.
saucemaster5000: thank you
Peregrine234: noooo :(

Pteraspidomorphi: Wait no, 7
ArmadilloAL: @Pteraspidomorphi Bad news - that's the last card.
Pteraspidomorphi: Nooo
Science_and_Magic: 29 again! I'm really consistent!
HadesLeprechaun: I could have gotten like 4 more points if not for the card JUST before it
Welbog: 40 points this round let's gooooo
Lord_Hosk: Hey, Master of the waiting room, go study

ArmadilloAL: 107, despite -6 to monsters that last round

forlornhope22: 97 fell off at the end.
KeytarCat: Mine is also 21!
Xiff_: 36 for a final score of 95

thrythlind: MArquis is a Count on the borders and I think Count is higher than Baron
Heckhoundbolt: Baron is the lowest
RvLeshrac: There's a solo score/title chart at the back of the Cartographers rulebook.
WiJohn: Aren't Dukes right bellow royalty?
Heckhoundbolt: Barons owned a single castle
Kramburger: Duke is the highest non-prince/king, etc

Lord_Hosk: Duke -> Marquess -> Earl _>Viscount ->Baron
Land_Manatee: Above a Count and below a Duke
Shadowsoflife: @Kramburger lords/ladies are the lowest
ArcLightningCanuck: You could try the solo monster rules and see if you like it better. Some people do.
RvLeshrac: The lore of Ulos is pretty substantial.
RvLeshrac: "Legendary Cartographer," even.
TemporallyAwry: The Human Brain is pretty swol, in fairness to humans.
2stepz: I'll come back and play along some time in the future on VOD, now that I understand the scoring.
FPNY41: what music is this?
spinebustertee: Surely the best Rock Band song is Maps

NotCainNorAbel: Pride500
Science_and_Magic: Imma have to go back to the vod and play game one
ArmadilloAL: Bye!
SymphonicLolita: dabits
SkylerRingtail: It pulled me away from Baldur's Gate, so that's impressive engagement!
LoadingReadyRun: @Lord_Hosk I can't actually tell if you are lying :p
Science_and_Magic: I could even playback both games from tonight on the B side of the map if I wanted to!
SkylerRingtail: @Science_and_Magic I find the B side more fun, and somehow easier
RvLeshrac: The Cartographers app is also pretty good.
RvLeshrac: The (brand new) Roll player app is fantastic.
LoadingReadyRun: It would be interesting to figure out what the theoretical maximum score you could have achieved with those cards
RvLeshrac: I've seen the high scores in Cartographers Daily games, the maximum score is usually about three times what I've gotten.
Science_and_Magic: @LoadingReadyRun I feel like optimizing would take a little of the fun out of it, but it would be curious to know
Science_and_Magic: @RvLeshrac Is that just really experienced players or do daily challenges use the same card order every time so you can replay them?
RvLeshrac: @Science_and_Magic I believe there are two dailies, one that you can do a single time, and another that you can repeat, both of which have the same card order.
