Rosco and I played our final game of the competition tonight and, for once using the BC&B expansion, we did not end up with a battle over one big field. This is the first time that I have seen this. The whole game was very close throughout and it could have gone either way, but the final result was:-

TheSteveAllen  :green-meeple: 127 : Rosco  :red-meeple: 107

I think that I am starting to get the hang of this expansion but, unfortunately, it is a little bit too late.

Thanks again to Rosco for the great battle, which I really enjoyed, and congratulations to Danisthirty for winning the competition.

Last game in F2 group was played.
MrNumbers vs. Jungleboy
103:71

Two big fights happened in this game: for the huge city and for the main farm. I successfully cut off 2 jungleboy's attempts to connect to the city and won the main farm (which wasn't so big in the end though: jungleboy made for himself almost the same worth farm near the end of the game).

Thodekey :blue-meeple: 102 : 135  :red-meeple:  khalidqasrawi

The playoff for 2nd place in the league was a tough one.

Thodekey played for the big points, I played to preserve meeples.  In the end, he spread himself a little thin.

We started with some tricky and precise road and city play.  I was able to scratch together points here and there and managed a good lead early on.  At that point I decided to close down and get my meeples back but was waiting on a CFCF for the 8 point city and the cloister.  It didn't take too long to appear otherwise it could have been a different game.  Meanwhile Thodekey had staked his claim on the farm which I was watching carefully.

At the top of the board, Thodekey was making a big city play and I was in two minds: make it un-completable or compete against it.  At the bottom of the board he was building another big city.  I had to arrange for a castle next to it to share the points.  I don't know if he noticed but I had to bid high for a RRRF to stop him from completing a road and hence getting my meeple off the castle which was my insurance against him finishing the city.  I think I completed that city in the end and we both scored the points.

With about 20 tiles to go I started dumping farmers on the farm.  They all got on quite easily.  I think Thodekey was out of meeples for that period.  By the time he had got them back it was too late and his attempts to glom his farmers on were long shots at best.

It was a good game and a nice end to a great tournament.

Congratulations to danisthirty for winning and a huge thank you to MrNumbers for organising.  It looks like a huge amount of work.
