Wow, so you won on every feature but Jack won the game overall?! TheSteve will be delighted!

Just goes to show that the gold really doesn't like you thodekey!

Haha, gold is indeed not an expansion that likes me.  It would be tempting to say that those goldmines costed me a 5-0 win in this scoring system but that would be wrong and it wouldn't do right to the game skills of JackFace.  In fact, if it wasn't for the goldmines, it could have resulted in a 4-1 loss for me.  The goldmines might have been the perfect decoy this time...  >:D

Anyway, everything -well, almost everything- to make TheSteveAllen happy.  ;)

This is a perfect example of what I had in mind when I set up the league. Using the goldmines as a 'decoy' is a very good tactic and I don't think for one moment that this was accidental. Increasingly players are taking on board that the winning of the game is not 100% what it is all about. It is about winning league points using a Carcassonne match to do so, which is far from being the same thing. I have a feeling that the 'holistic approach' to matches might actually improve everyone's game for 'normal' competitions. I hope so, at least.

Well done to both of you for being a perfect advertisement for this tournament. A merit from me to you both!

Following the fascinating match between Thodekey and Jackface last night, the Championship is very much wide open.

After 6 games out of 15, the table looks like this.

Only 5x days left and only one game played. Is no-one up for a match?

The league closes on 16th February and not 16th December. Don't panic!! I must have made a typo somewhere, or did you misread my post?

Cheers!

My bad, sorry all!

Phew!

You do realise that you have aged me by another 5 years this morning!!  ;D

Anyone up for a game today?

If you get a game and need someone to host the game this evening, let me know. I can help with this if necessary.

Anyone up for a game next week? I am a bit sick now and not up for a challenge. You can assume that I am available everyday after 8pm if you just give me one day advance notice.

Just give me a shout when you are feeling better and I can play you one evening next week.

Well, we have made a start to the League A winter season and the table is attached. Are there any more games planned for this week?

If anyone is having problems with organising matches please contact me. I am always available in the Slack chat room (The Pie Shed).

I had my first game of the season against a very fine opponent in Singing Dwarf who was beaten as much by not knowing the program as he was by me in the game. The controls for the Crop Circles appeared to have us both confused.

I'm not going to go into any deep analysis, other than to say that this time I was going all out to win league points rather than win the game and it would appear that this task is not going to be that easy.

Well played Singing Dwarf, that was a very good backward and forward game and I had no idea who was going to win what, other than being obvious that you were winning all of the roads!!

I wish you all the best of luck for the rest of the season, especially as you have now had your first game 'on-line'.

I can make myself available to set the ball rolling any evening this week. Any takers?

9pm tonight? I've never played online with JCZ, so not sure what to do.

Are you still up for a game?
