I'm not sure what farin's priorities are at the moment but I don't think JCloisterZone features among them.

I don't share the difficulties you've been experiencing with JCZ so it's difficult to comment on them as I can't replicate them.

I'm sorry to have to announce this, but for reasons of force majeure I have to withdraw from the competition. At the moment I do not have an interne tconnection stable enough to even play a game. I'm sory a lot people,I haven't been around due to this problem.

Sorry to hear this. What a shame it happened when it did... :(

Thanks everyone for your involvement in Round 2. We didn't charge through with quite the same dizzying pace as we did the first round but everyone's still onboard (and able to play) which is what matters, so without any further ado let's get Round 3 underway!

Well, OK a little bit of further ado. But only so we can glimpse at the end of round standings for a few moments:


(just realised that I forgot to change the "standings after Round 1" sub-heading to say "standings after Round 2" so please pretend I did that) ::)

It's still early in the competition but it's good to see that everyone has now won at least one game out of the four we've all played so far. This isn't surprising considering the strength of the field, nor is it surprising to see just how little there is between top and bottom; nothing that couldn't be reversed within the next couple of rounds anyway. Interesting to see how things lie at the end of the next round...

Round 3 is now live! You can access the thread for it, including fixture list, by following this link.

Round 3



The full list of all fixtures for Rounds 1 to 11 (including results from previous rounds) can be found here: http://tournamentscheduler.net/schedule/NzAwODE4MjQzNg (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)

Please aim to play your match as soon as you're able to, but let's aim to have the round wrapped-up before the end of next week (Sunday 3rd March). If we finish earlier than this, we will of course move on to Round 4 as soon as we're able!

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:-)

I'm only really available in March, because in April/May I'll be away from home and without a computer and/or in a weird time zone. Given that it always seems to take longer to arrange matches than we think, maybe I should sit out.

In that case I'll steal Nick's expansion - Mage & Witch - so that he will still be alive in our hearts and I'll hear his gentle laughter in my ear every time I have the witch dumped on my cities.

I did say ‘maybe’ but it’s weirdly comforting and reassuring to know that danisvulture is always circling, ready to pounce on my carcass.

What can I say? Other than merely to thank you for putting the carcass in carcassonne.

I am in although terrified of my opponents.

I don't think that you have noticed that Dan is in your division, so you have at least 5 points!  >:D

Sorry for the delay everyone, but things are back on track!

LaplazadeCarcassonne is back in the mix now that we've resolved his difficulties with JCloisterZone and he is due to play his match with Halfling on Friday. Meanwhile, the long-awaited clash between Rosco and Sinscerly is scheduled to take place this evening!

All being well I'll kick off Round 3 at some point over the weekend.

Dan :blue-meeple: :(y)

Super!  7:30 pm (GMT) is fine, 8:00 PM would be perfect.
I can't host either (i don't know how it works) so
- we find somebody else to host
- OR we take the risk of playing online (I had to replay 1 game in this league thus far)

Happy to host for you guys if you're in need?

LaplazadeCarcassonne - please let me know when you have some time to test your instance of JCloisterZone.

I am working from home today so have time between now and 3pm, or this evening. Please let me know.

If JCloisterZone worked for you before when you played Leven then it should be working just as well now.

I would like to play my games with sincerely tonight but haven't heard from him

Did you arrange a time to play with him? I thought you were playing earlier in the week but kept missing each other?

Anyway, on to my match with Leven:

Game 1:



As fun as this game was (for me), it wasn't one of the best that Leven and I have played. The tiles were definitely on my side and as Leven began to feel the game sliding away from him he took increasingly risky chances which never seemed to pay off. As nice as it is to draw all the tiles that I needed, as well as the ones that Leven needed, it didn't feel like a very balanced game and although I was very happy to take the win I did feel that if this had happened during a game in person I could rightly have been accused of rigging the tiles!



Game 2:



This was quite a long game (it took about an hour) with lots of contemplations from both sides. Leven was always quick to leap on any opportunity to block one of my meeples and although I was usually able to defend myself I was always on the back foot with regards my meeples as Leven always seemed to have more at his disposal than I did. This said, I never completely ran out so didn't skip too many points.

In the end, the luck was fairly evenly balanced with both of us picking up most of the tiles we needed (significantly the final cccr for Leven). This meant the scores were generally close throughout; often there were just a few points between us.

In the closing stages of the game I was ahead by a handful of points, but had two farms to myself and was sharing the top farm with Leven. With three tiles left to place he attacked this farm and won it outright with the last tile of the game which secured him a 2-point victory.



So the match was 1 - 1 with +39 PD to me and -39 PD to Leven

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the first leg of my match with Leven has been played. We hope to play the second game either this evening or at some point over the weekend.

I've a feeling someone contacted us via Facebook about these, but I can't remember if it was the person who had created them or someone who had found them. Either way, these do look quite cool.

Hey everyone. Just checking in to thank everyone who has already played their games, and to say that Leven and I will be playing our match on Thursday evening.

Any news from either Rosco/ Sinscerly or Halfling/ LaplazadeCarcassonne ?

I might be mistaken but wasn't he a student? I guess he has exams right now then?

Yeah. Exams in Carcassonne!
