That's amazing! What a great deal!

Which games did you choose?

Happy birthday from me also. I hope you have had a wonderful day! 8) :(y)
Thank you, Dan!

I chose Patchwork (still didn't play it till the moment; actually, it was my wife's spontaneous choice in the shop), Ticket to Ride Germany, Sagrada and The Noah's Ark (little game for my daughter - magnetic puzzle).

Happy Birthday Mr Numbers, I hope you had chance to roll the dice at your local game shop!
Thanks, Decar!
Yes, my annual visit to FLGS was very successful! I took 4 games with overall value 114.90 EUR, but paid only 8.90 EUR for them! Firstly, I rolled 5 (50% discount), then I used all my gift cards, some loyalty points, so only 8.90 left to pay! :(y) :D

Thanks, Steve, for organizing this league!  :(y)
Am I missing something, or no games were played in Championship division? :o

Last game of the season is over!

MrNumbers vs. Rosco

4:1

A quick game with Rosco, and again I lost the farms, but managed to win everything else :)
With this win I avoided relegation :o (phew!)

Thanks everyone for the games and for the patience ::)

At least one win in this season, and again, I failed to use my own expansion - my barn left unplaced. Still, I managed to win all other features, but gold helped me to win in overall points. Thanks for the enjoyable game, Thomas! :)

P.S. To avoid relegation, I must win Rosco with at least 2 league points difference (4-1 or 5-0), or 1 league point (3-2) and 168 game points difference.

MrNumbers vs. Leven, game 2.
102:78

Tiles loved me that evening, I had a lot of luck, and it was stronger than Leven's excellent gameplay :D

Ouch, I just found out that our first game's results also not published!

That game was much closer, throughout the game we were even, point in point. Only with last tile I was able to snatch a victory.

23 sets, that's well 1656 tiles ??? :o
Well done, hope the tournament will get awesome.
Tournament went OK, not so much participants (15), but a lot of fun was guaranteed :)

Looking at that original image I would have thought the "good" green was the bit of the tile that hadn't been exposed to sunlight, and the bit that was bluer had been bleached by the sun - just like a lot of the spines of books on my bookshelf that have caught the (lower angled) winter sun over the many years they've been sitting there! But certainly worth experimenting with - any idea how long they might have been left?
I think wolnic is right: I compared my original GC tiles and they have "good" green, which is on half of two tiles. Of course, I could still do an experiment and make them at least all the same, but it will be "bad" green. Good project for my son, actually :D And - I have no idea how long they have been left on sunlight.

Prehistory:
For my annual tournament with expansions I have taken from local distributor some basic sets. This time they (sets) were messed up, and they offered to me to do the job: make all sets as complete as possible. It took me 2 complete evenings to sort everything out, and I was able to create 23 complete sets, with many-many spare tile left. For such a job they gave me a 45 EUR gift card! :D Very generous!
Now, on topic: also they gave me unneeded expansion German Castles, which spend some time on sun with one corner. This created an interesting effect - ugly green became comfortable green! Just curious - is it possible to fix all other ugly green tiles? :o What do you think? Worth a try? ;)

Don't change horses in the middle of a stream - Abbey & Mayor 8)

P.S. And what about my question about adjusting tie breakers?

I just wanted to ask: what happens if Xanderx12 won't show up till the date? I think it would be fair to eliminate his results from the score table completely.
Second question is, how tie breaks are working. Now according to the rules PD is the first tie breaker. Wouldn't be better to use number of wins as a first tie breaker, and then PD? Just to avoid situations, when you could win all games and be even relegated :o

Leven vs. MrNumbers

Thrilling game, in which I secured the win only with my very last tile! I started with a couple of good cities, blocked Leven's mayor for a while. When he placed his barn, I tried to cut it off from growing up, but failed with that, so his barn became huge rather quickly. I tried to win in cloisters, but didn't draw enough to score these points. I almost lost hope to win, when a saving last tile showed up! :)
Thanks for the game, Leven! Very interesting, as always! :(y)
