Is somebody available at some point this week? Weekday evening from about 8pm UK time onward would suit me?
Hi Dan,
How about Thursday evening?

I'm playing Laplazadecarcassonne this evening for our basegame league match. Would Friday be any good for you?

Can you find a better placement for that tile?

Not an obvious choice at all, especially given the pressure of what looks like it was a very tight game! However, robbing your opponent of 3 points is as useful as generating 3 points for yourself (assuming this is the placement you were talking about and I'm not missing something?)...

The best thing about Carcassonne is:

- Building meeple pyramids in between turns

- Watching my opponent drawing all of the tiles I desperately need

- Posting a photo of my river placement on BGG to ask if it's valid

- "Thinking" for 5 minutes before doing something exceptionally obvious

- Noticing that I have a meeple sat in a complete cloister still on the board and not remembering whether or not I've already scored it

- Knowing I could have won if only my opponent had drawn my last tile and I'd drawn theirs

Any other suggestions? :))

...not only did I lose both games but I have to talk about it, in front of you all!

Admitting that you had a problem is the first step to overcoming it. Don't back away from it dronedrone, we're here to support you, not to judge you.

That aside, well done to both of you for getting your games played so quickly! :) :(y)

If  that includes shipping you are buying very well, if not you are still buying better than most of us. Hope that playing with Darmstadt was not too disappointing.
I learned long ago that you always buy expansions as soon as you can with Carcassonne or any game, really. It’ll save a lot of money in the long run. And yes, all my prices included shipping and tax, if applicable.

+1 to this! Always get what you can, while you can get it. Because even if you don't like it, it's only going to go up in value and if you ever change your mind it will cost an arm and a leg to get it. :@

@Spiel 14-18 tiles: I'm looking at you!

This option needs to be added to the profile page...

At least they offer the 5th best customer service you will never get  >:D

That bit made me laugh out loud (at work). At least they acknowledge that there are exactly 4 better places to never get customer service.

I own BB5 (for the special River tile) and BB6 for the new-art 2012 minis.

Do any of the first four Big Boxes contain any exclusive content?

PS - 6400th post! :(y)

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:-)

Hi everyone.

I've been trying to get hold of @sinscerly but haven't heard from him for a couple of weeks now which is a bit disappointing. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt for the time being and am postponing the outcome of his match with JackFace. However, if all other matches from this round get played and this is left outstanding then I will be forced to remove him from the competition and carry on without him. This isn't ideal, and I'm hoping it won't have to happen, but if it does, the standard rule is to discard all of his previous results which will have an impact on the league table for those who have already played him.

Apparently Round 7 was not a good round for Rosco who has dropped 4 places after his clash with Riker. This has put me in the top spot for the time being, but with four rounds left to play there's still everything to play for!

Let's go! (to Round 8 )

Thank you very much for your fast replies.

Logically, the stock and the prices without discount are very suspicious, but now that you have discovered there is a copy-paste of Ebay Ads, I directly dismiss it as a trusted website. The Internet is full of cheats...

Golden Rule:
If the web does not support paypal reject it without consideration.  ;)

Should the same be said of Amazon? ;)

Thanks - really interesting write up. Our game was the most entertaining I had all day! I played Julia Bamber and encouraged her afterwards to join this community as she is a quality player. I was fortunate to beat her, even though I have been playing Carcassonne longer than she has been alive!

For all you do for Carcassonne you most definitely deserve a place at the World Championship. You were by far the best player I played all day. Despite having won it twice I feel I have a lot I can learn from you still. I'm sure it will be you year soon - now it is all two player games at the UK Championship I'm sure it will not be long.

Sorry I had to miss the semi final and final rounds - I had a UK Catan Championship to win the next day (and the Champions League final was on)!

Apologies for missing this Riker, and thanks very much for your kind words! Ours was certainly the most intense game I played on the day!

Congratulations on your victory in the Catan competition, when are the European/ world championships?
