PP-Score after Round 2:
1. Starhills: 10 pp
2. Fierzdaufen: 10 + 9 = 19 pp
3. ferntree gully: 8 pp
4. Elantris: 7 + 9 = 16 pp
5. Bierton: 10 + 6 = 16 pp
6. Lokringen: 10 + 9 = 19 pp
7. Kronenstadt: 8 pp
8. Juvavum: 7 pp

@Bierton: I checked, i don´t see how your solution is possible. Please post your solution here, if your sure its right (just the initials in 9 rows). Please write a post here as well, if you are accepting your score of 16 pp, so we can go on with the process of finding a winner

Seems like we need The CountCount Lottery to find the PUZZLE MASTER

@Fierzdaufen and Lokringen:
Please post the number of a building in your town, asap, like this:
29001 victuals market 22630sqm ;)


With this 2 numbers we will be able to ascertain a winner :shock:

I thank everyone for your patience, and especially our taskmaster,
our beloved Duke Count Count who giveth a new meaning to life
on the board.

I am so excited... And I just can't hide it...
I am not used to mingle in such high society
How shall I bear me with propriety?

I am but a newly fledged (or hatched we may say) little baronet,
with still much of the huckster in his manners and
bearing my newfound nobility with some misgivings. Perhaps is this
just a dream, or some virtual reality, and it shall all be taken from
me tomorrow....
And I have never owned such a beautiful object as the egg now at
stake. I cannot yet, in my huckster-soul, understand how someone
could freely give away such an object, such a valuable object...

So if I stammer and blush or talk out of all due proportion, :oops:
I beg you to bear with this huckster.... No, do not bear with the
huckster, your company shall certainly elevate me and at length
kill the huckster within me and make me worthy of my acquired title...

Well, I must post the number of a building...
Ay, I choose the first I built (with my own hands) as I was yet but
a villain, and was told by others what to do... I still keep it...

174606 Farm 1300sqm

Well, howsoever the outcome will be in this fearful match I send my
warmest regards to Jediping and Lord Bierton who gave this contest
such a good shot, and to my mighty adversary from the craggy
Fierzdaufen.
I love you all... Without you I wouldn't be standing here today...
No, that was the wrong phrase, I believe :oops:
Well, may my darling old beet-farm do its best in this lottery and
stand for the honour of Lokringen, like David once faced Goliath,
against the awesome Fierzdaufen brewery...

@Helmeth: You are a poet!

Now:
Lottery goes like this

Highest Number wins with: own number - Opponents sqm -->
checksum --> Winning Number


BlackPhase: 119404 brewery- 1300sqm= 118104
checksum: 1+1+8+1+0+4= 15

Helmeth: 174606 Farm - 21000sqm= 153606
checksum: 1+5+3+6+0+6= 21

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D WE HAVE A PUZZLE MASTER ! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
And the winner is Helmeth of Lokringen

To all the others: Thanks a lot for participating. Some Day (not soon, maybe in 1 or 2 month) will be another puzzle contest - this was just a trial balloon. I hope, you will then join again
Thanks again

Indeed!
How shall I thank you, Duke Count Count?
I am tongue-tied...

The egg has arrived, yes, but I dont know whether I can sign
the delivery until I have a Hall of fame?
I have already given orders for this and construction has begun.

The city provost has declared that this egg is a gift that cannot
be sold for money... I thank the gods for this, that they thus
protect me from a temptation that might else have subdued the nobler
parts in me.

Ay... for the last time... I thank you, Duke, for this sport and
for ennobling me with this precious gift, which was all unlooked for.

(And I thank you for this memorable laughter:
If we drag this on a little more, the egg of columbus will hatch and we`ll have a couple of little columbusses hopping around ! this is not acceptable !
) :lol:
