OK Ok ok...

I've added some of these. Not 100% sure what order they should be in or what their descriptions should read but I'm sure you guys will help out with that?

Hi guys

it's complicated with priorities now. Second child, involved in startup project ...

Congratulations on the new arrival farin! And thanks for your continued efforts with JCZ despite all your new time commitments!

Downloaded and installed 4.3.1 on two computers.

On both, it will not start a new game, and the Online play just sits there "Connecting" and nothing ever happens.

Strange. It works fine in every respect on my computer... ?

The link had expired by the time I got round to trying it.

I will try to add you by email instead...

How can I meet other players and play in JCloisterZone?

Many thanks

Hello LittleWarKey and welcome to the forums! :) :(y)

JCZ's online lobby often seems to fill up with unresponsive bots who don't want to play Carcassonne so I normally post a message on this thread to see if anybody else is available.

Failing that, you could see if anybody is available on the Slack channel. Details of which can be found here.

I'm often on the lookout for people to play with too, so feel free to drop me a PM through these forums and perhaps we can arrange something?

Best wishes,

Is it only me thinking "why not make a map of France as background instead of Germany?  After all - although some Germans would like to have it otherwise- Carcassonne still lies in France, right?

Nope! At first they were just sneaking a couple of monasteries and some castles into France, which seemed weird but nothing most of us couldn't overlook. Now they've stolen the entire city of Carcassonne, have smuggled it back to Germany and are rebuilding it there! This makes no sense at all...

These are the tiles that have been given out by Cundco at Essen every year since 2014.

There are 5 of them now, and some of them (especially the older ones) are now quite hard to get hold of.

Hello, everyone!

Please add me for some asynchronous iOS gaming fun:

I'll try to add you this evening.

Thanks for the updates guys. 3 matches played within the first couple of days has got to be some kind of record!

Any news on the other matches?

Two great games with Rosco! He's already provided a short description and screenshots from the second game, so here are my screenshots from the first game...

Game 1:

Although I was very happy with the scoreline at the end of this game, I can't really think of what specifically contributed to the big PD. Obviously it helped having the main farm, which is something I went after almost immediately and which Rosco might have shared with me if he'd made the decision to fight back slightly earlier. However, it also helped me that he had two trapped meeples; one on a road for 6pts and one in a city for 9pts. I worked hard to kill off the city but Rosco knew what I was up to and successfully defended it at every turn. However, eventually it slipped away from him and it didn't help that I seemed to draw all of the remaining crfr tiles that he needed so much!

So all in all, it was a game where everything seemed to go my way despite Rosco's admirable persistence!

Final scores after both games:

Dan - 1pt - +52PD
Ross - 1pt - -52PD

I was 8th on the world championships in 2018 as well ;)

Awesome result! Since most national champions will go on to take part in the world championships, I didn't know whether people would prefer "{wherever} Champion {whenever}" or "xth place, world championships {whenever}". I guess maybe it depends on their finishing position at the world championships, but it's a personal choice. I'll update yours anyway. :) :(y)

Played an awesome 2 matches last night with Steve.

The first one was quite hectic... And I thought I would lose. Somehow I managed to squize out one more point than he did. Just because I managed to set some meeples free in the last rounds so I could manage to finish some cities and compete on the fields.

The second round I tried building a city and got blocked, so I saw my changes at the end with Steves his big city to block it. I managed to get quite some cloister points, steve didnt used the cloisters (except one), but it was I think more the bottleneck of that city you lost. Never go too big. Have been stuck in cities to much????

Congrats! Sounds like two great games!

With Round 4 complete, I'm happy to be able to show you the slightly newish league table which now looks all posh with country flags and everything!

I'm hoping that I've got this right for everyone (nationalities), but please tell me if anything's wrong and I'll fix it. I've also added a sort of "claim to fame" column on the right for people I know who have taken part in their national championships, or even gone on to participate in the world championships. Please let me know if you'd like anything added here :)

Round 5 is now live! You can access the thread for it, including fixture list, by following this link.

Round 5

The full list of all fixtures for Rounds 1 to 11 (including results from previous rounds) can be found here: (but please don't play any of your opponents from any future rounds yet as we're going to take it one round at a time). :(y)

Another slowish round to complete, so sorry about that. But we're all still here which is what really matters, and I'm sure most of us are ready and raring to get stuck into this new round! You know the drill by now... let's go!

Good luck to everyone; and when you do get round to playing your match please don't forget to post the results and any screenshots you have here on this post! Thanks C:-)

Nothing's fair in love or Carcassonne... :o

Two more matches to go! Any updates guys?
It's currently halftime in my battle with MrNumbers. The second game should take place within one or two days I assume.

Thanks for the update. Sounds like you must be getting through a lot of oranges.
