I am confused as to the total number of monastery tiles included in this edition. Some of them are obvious but some look like they are just villages at the termination of a road. Are they in fact modest dwellings of monks?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since this is simply a winter-themed clone of Carcassonne, there should only be 6 Monasteries in the game. I suppose there may be one more with the bonus tiles that are included, but no more than that. Monasteries usually stand out pretty well on the landscape. There are no "modest dwellings of monks" in the game.

This Edition have a 72 base tiles set + 12 bonus animal tiles. The base set must have 6 Cloisters total (4 regular + 2 with a road segment). The bonus set may have 1 or 2 Cloisters (I'm not sure of this). So, depending of the bonus set, you would count between 7 or 8 Cloisters total.

Based on last page of the rule book it is 8 Monastery tiles.
I have the Hans Im Gluck version but also a copy of the zMan rules

WinA x2, WinB x4 (original)
WinTierD x1, WinTierF x1 (new)

The German version states that the 84 tiles are the 72 from the original plus 12 new for the Winter edition -- that includes WinTierD and WinTierF

The one that looks like a village at the end of the road is not a monastery but just a dead end road. That tile has confused a few of my players too.
