At the end of the game, the rules say:

Quote:
End of game: at the end of phase 4, inspect the village one last time, block by block. The player with the most cattle meeples in each block receives 1 victory point each.


Does that "each" mean 1 victory point per block, or 1 victory point per cattle meeple in said block.

Is the second one: 1 victory point per cattle meeple in said block

So if "buildings", "cattle" and "villagers" each score 1 point at the end game (for player with majority), this seems significantly more advantaged then those who were stuck building "ovens" and "shrines"? That seems to penalize players for their luck of draw, rather than strategy. If you are going to give points for majorities, shouldn't it be for each and every category?

Don't forget that shrines, ovens, also reward you with Aspect cards which can give you points.

But so do cattle/villagers, which just makes them worth double over shrines/ovens

Yes that's correct.
A good tactic would be to aim on aspects cards that give you a family, or cattle since you can see the icons on the top cards. Is a bit hard since you must win in a block, or more..
