Very nice write up. I just want to add some words regarding Pawel W. It was funny, because I started the night with two 2 player games, one with Halfling and a few expansions, followed by one, which was supposed to be with Jungleboy BG to have something brief, in case somebody else wants to join for a weekly game later on.
Both games were played on the online server without password, but in the second one Pawl W. "squeezed into", and me not noticing that for halfway through the game, because he picked green, like JB would always do, too, and I was not looking on the scoring track. It was a pleasent surprise nontheless, he played good and even won the game, due to finishing a city, he had a 3:2 majority in which equalled out my medium big farm. Pawel W. afterwards joined our Weekly game, and I wrote to him after the game, that he might be interested to check here for future game arrangements on JCZ, though I'm not sure, if he was still in the game and got that.
