Reviews & Session Reports / Alternative World Record Attempt 2016?
« on: May 02, 2016, 02:32:54 AM »
At Thirsty Meeples café in Oxford, JT Atomico and Curt194 managed to play 8 different versions of Carcassonne.  This seems an impressive achievement, but it can and no doubt will be bettered.  I have come up with a quick list of 18 versions below that all belong to the Carcassonne family of games and I bet that I have missed a few others.  Is anyone in UK up for a marathon session and an attempt at bettering 8 versions?

I have no idea when/where etc.  just a gauge of interest at this stage.

Can anyone use JCZ tonight?  Valheruu and I are unable to play at the moment.

Official Rules / German Cathedrals scoring questions
« on: March 31, 2016, 08:36:38 AM »
I have a scoring question for this new expansion.  If a road starts at one German Cathedral and ends at a different German Cathedral is the scoring of the road still 2 points per tile?

In theory a new Labyrinth tile could be surrounded by 4 German Cathedrals.  If I am lucky enough to have placed a meeple on the Labyrinth tile does it score 10 points or more than 10?

Other Games / Exploding Kittens

I received Exploding Kittens as a birthday present from my 92 year old grandparents.

It's an enjoyable variant on Uno.

Online Games and Competitions / Superbowl + Carcassonne game?
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:16:46 PM »
I like staying up and watching at least the first half of the Superbowl.  It starts at 23:20(ish) in UK.  To help me stay awake, would anyone like to play a JCZ game whilst I have Parthers vs Broncos on in the background this coming Sunday?

Maybe we can get 3, 4 or more of us playing?

How about a pair of meeples as cufflinks on silver plated fastenings?

Three unusual colour wooden meeple examples attached, Gold, Silver and Turquoise.  Other standard colours available upon request.  Each pair made by my wife.

Only £7.00 + postage.

Wear your meeples with pride

Has anyone played Tsuro of the Seas? I just got mine and have played a 3 and a 4 player game. I enjoy it and was wondering how others feel about this game.
