Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

I find the text for lake scoring a little confusing.

Quote:
In the final scoring, each lake district is counted. The first
lake square in each lake district is worth 0VP, while each consecutive square in the district is worth 3VP.


For each lake district I count the number of squares, subtract 1, multiply by 3 and score that many points.

Is this what others are doing?

That seems right. "Additional" would be more clear than "consecutive".

Agreed, consecutive is what gave me pause. That and the underlined bits in the following don't seem to match up:

"each lake district is worth 0VP, while each consecutive square in the district"

No, it says:

"The first square [in each lake district] is worth 0 VP"

not

"Each lake district is worth 0 VP...."

I was just quoting the part that mattered for my point, which was apparently missed. I omitted the preceding and trailing "..."

That is the way I intended it to be. The first draft of the lake scoring was basically how you wrote it. However, casual gamers (in general) dislike math in their scoring so it was changed first 0 others 3 points.
