comment Who won this game of Settlers of Catan?
@Tetteh, Forgetting to rob does not "end the game." You lose your chance to rob. The game continues. Reaching 10 points ends the game. Since the game had already ended, any subsequent turns are invalid. The robber instance is not valid since the game still continues. It was not an illegal move. Building outside of your turn was illegal, but we went back and altered that, and returned the cards.

That's irrelevant. The rule book has an imperative declaration "the game ends immediately" -- that is an order. It does not say who must, should, or who has responsibility to carry it out. It says the game ends. Therefore the game ended at the end of Player A's turn. Objectivity is built into the rule book.

@Tetteh, wow, too many words. To address your first chunk: The game does not say you need to declare or claim victory. It says reaching 10 points does it. That's objective. Trying to argue that this is the players responsibility is your opinion. The book clearly says otherwise.

@thesunneversets, so do you agree then that the game should have ended and any further play was illegal? Therefore, player A, the player who had 10 victory points but only realized after his turn had ended, should have been declared a winner?

comment How do the expansions for Carcassonne change the game?
@thesunneversets, thanks! I completely agree with you there. I have a few more in the box that I would like to try including The Count. I bought the big box over a year ago, but haven't played anything outside of those three.

there is a very thorough explanation of the biggest three Carcassonne expansions, and how each affects the game: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/2374/…
