Those who play the boiteajeux implementation of the game might know that you can see not only your current scores but (by clicking on "scoring") you can see all the bonuses everyone gets and the total score they'd have if the game ended at that moment. Most bonuses are clear - they are the bonuses for different yellow tiles and for leftover wealth (workers/silver). But there is one called "bonus end field" and I just can't understand what it is. Didn't find it in the rulebook and couln't find a simple relation between its value and a property of my estate. Did I miss a rule? What is that bonus?

Bonus end tiles refer to the "Race" part of the game where you can earn the bonus tiles by being the first (5 6 or 7 points depending on number of players) or second (2 3 or 4 points) to fill all landscape tiles of a certain land type.

Once you get one, the tile itself shows up under your name, and your points from all the tiles is reflected in the "bonus end field" section

Hope that helps, cheers!

Thanks. I thought the bonus tile point are supposed to be added when you get the tile - that's how I played it in the physical version. I guess it doesn't really matter but it confused me.

You're right- it doesn't really matter as long as you play consistently, but the rules do say that these points should be scored as soon as the bonus tiles as gained.

So now I'm confused again. Does Boîte à Jeux *not* add the bonus tile points as soon as you get the tile?

That is correct.
