Halfling started game 2GLH510 2 - 0 Halfling2 x blocking games. If I'd first been introduced to the game played like this I'd never have played again!
We were generally quite even in this game, but my taking overall control of the incomplete city to the north was key to my victory. I was only able to do this because I drew the last two cccx tiles which Jere needed, but I guess I got lucky here. Jere had his fair share of luck too though, and overall it felt exciting from start to finish for me.
The tile with the city part that I claimed didn't have to be a cccf though. It could be any fcxx tile that would allow me to attack the city. I wasn't counting the tiles very closely so I don't know if there were other tiles left that would have suited this, but I'm pretty sure there were (will have to check the video). And then any joiner tile to get onto it.Yes it would have been a different story if you had drawn one of the two cccx tiles, but I don't think it's true to say that I needed both of them in that order to get my second knight into the city.
In my opinion the second game was far closer than the scores suggest...
