comment Does it really matter if dice are randomized?
Love how your opponent was really worried that someone might cheat him and get to play first! What a total rip-off that would be :p

@AlexP ahahah, that may well be the case! I just wanted to bring in the thoughts of a pro, and Paulo's article is the closest answer I could find.

comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
@NickShaw People, read the question!! I have written: "The game is using the current basic set of rules/tiles." It even links to the rules I'm talking about! Either way, I'm going to edit it now.

@user1873 the rules I link to in the question body say that each city tiles is worth 2 points regardless. I think they were the last official rules to see print.

Wonderful answer, totally worth looking into! By the way, the question was never changed :p

I agree with you, but I just think it is possible there is an attainable solution that doesn't need to look at all possible board states.

I don't think you need to trace every single move. Imagine that you can prove it is possible to make a single city and a single road with all the existing tiles. With only two meeples you can score all those points, leaving all your other meeples to maximize cloisters and farms. It's the maximized end state that's important, not every single option you get along the way.

After thinking about what you said, I don't think meeples make the problem harder. I actually think they simplify it: they are the only way to score! I think the solution to this problem is making the most out of each (for example, using only one to score all of the city tiles in a single giant city). Of course, farmers do depend on the map shape and add a lot of complexity but I son't think "brute force" is the only way to solve this.
