What is the strategy involved with this expansion? If you get to score the sum of the messenger and score meeple, why use both? I put this in strategy because I sense the answer will be the strategy to play this expansion.

Every time that one of the score markers hits a multiple of five, you get a message. The strategy comes from trying to keep your two score markers at different distances from the multiples of five. If you know that a cloister is close to being scored, you may want to keep a score marker nine spaces away from a multiple of five, and so on.

This expansion becomes more strategic if you add the Robbers expansion.
