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

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)

@Leven or @Xanderx12, is someone of you available tonight for a game?
Yes, I am. I'm ready to play this evening.
I am in the Slack channel.

Just to let you guys know that Jere has contacted me over the weekend and has informed me that, due to his new family circumstances, he will be unable to compete. I will not be replacing him at this stage of proceedings, so the league is now reduced to 5 players for this season only.
Does this means that we will have only 1 player to be relegated to lower league? Or still from 5 players 2 will be relegated?

I can do tonight at 21:30 CET if you're free? (same goes for you guys Xanderx12 and Jere?)
OK, see you tonight.

Literally nothing to add to what Nicholas Mystikos said :)
The only thing - I shouldn't take these two 6-points farms, I should take some roads instead (and I had such opportunity). But OK, not bad for the first time :D
