Carcassonne Central Expansion League #1: Traders & Builders
« on: January 02, 2015, 06:52:20 AM »
What better way to start the new year than with a brand new Carcassonne Central online tournament?!  :(y) ;D :(y)

It's free to enter and anyone with a PC/ Laptop/ Mac (i.e. anybody who can run JCloisterZone) can take part, regardless of skill level. Here are a few points on how it will work:
  • All players will be divided between a number of groups so that no group contains more than 7 or 8 players (preferably). Each group will have a dedicated administrator to oversee the running of the group and keep a master record of scores.
  • Every player must play a single head-to-head (2-player) game of Carcassonne against every other person in their group. Games will be played online using JCloisterZone so please ensure you have downloaded the latest version of this and have got it running on your PC well in advance of your first game.
  • Each game must include just the basic game plus the Traders & Builders expansion only, for a total of 96 tiles. The starting player should be selected at random by checking the “Randomise Seating Order” checkbox on the pre-game screen.
  • Every player is awarded 3 league points for every game they win, or 1 point for a draw. This will be the primary ranking criteria for the league.
  • The total number of points scored by you and the total number of points scored against you (by your opponents) throughout all league games you’ve played will be logged and used to calculate your total score differential (total points won minus total points scored against you). This will be the secondary ranking criteria for the league.
  • Once you have finished your game, please post a screenshot of the final scores (these will appear in a pop-up window immediately after the final tile has been placed) back to the forums along with a write-up of your game if you so wish.
  • Once everyone has played everyone else within their groups, similarly ranked players will play each other to determine an overall ranking (i.e. Group A winner vs Group B winner, Group A 2nd vs Group B 2nd etc).
There will be more details to follow, but if you'd like to take part please register your interest by posting below. Closing date for entries is the end of next week (11th Jan) with a view to having the first games played at the start of the following week.

The exact duration of the competition will depend on the number of participants, but if you're likely to be away for any sustained period of time between 12th January and early February then please be mindful of this before entering!

Best regards, and good luck!

I am there.
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

I am a novice player and am located in Central European time zone. The first seems to be no problem (anyone [...] can take part, regardless of skill level), so if the second is OK too, I would like to join as well.

Perhaps this topic has a better place in the forum section:

Sorry, I am not in, because I don't play online Carcassonne.

The second is definitely OK (and the first too, of course). For the most part we have two groups of players in these leagues regarding timezones: those in Europe and those in North America, so there will be plenty of others in your timezone or one hour ahead/behind.
