I have read the rules, and even tried reading rules for the board game from other sites in case I missed anything. However sometimes the scoring confuses me. I placed a tile with a "T" path with a fountain at the T, against the wall tile 18/19, such that the T was placed on its side. I expected to get points for a comple[/img]ted path, but received none. My playing partner played a similar "T" tile on the opposite side at 74/75 and received 2 points. Why would one score and not the other? I thought the fountain was a road start/end?

There is a difference in tiles
- tile with a square: divides the path and is an endpoint
- tile with a fountain: fountain does not seperate the path.

See http://images.yourturnmyturn.com/rules/carcassonne/carcassonne-the-castle-rules.pdf

If you have exact gamenumber for your question I probably can explain better!

Thanks for the reply. The game number is 1151165. I read the directions and they are just fuzzy as it does state paths end a walls or squares, but the example right after that shows a fountain so I got them confused. However I am still confused as to the points given for those two tiles in our game as the appear the same. If you could look it would help both of us.

Thanks again.

At 18/19 you did not place your character on the road but on the green grass! You need to place it on the road to get points for that.
