Another precision please :)

Blue-7:  "using any combination of expansions"

Can it be zero expansions or at least one must be included?

Another good question!  :(y)

Weekly games are referenced in the requirements of three different levels of the Order of the Meeple. The main reason for its inclusion is different at each stage:

Yellow-2 is about taking part in a weekly game purely for the purpose of discovering it and becoming a more closely-integrated member of CarcC’s JCZ community
Blue-7 is about winning a game against three or more opponents to demonstrate an understanding of how tactics change against multiple opponents
Black-8 is about showing commitment, consistency and a good degree of tactical knowledge when playing with each of the 5 major expansions

With this in mind, the expansions are most relevant at Black-8 so it seems entirely acceptable to me that a 4-player game using just the basic tiles could be won to achieve Blue-7. Furthermore, this victory would also count part of the way towards Black-8 but wouldn’t help much in terms of expansions covered!

Finally, it’s also worth noting that the definition of a “weekly game” is fairly loose in this sense. It’s just as good, worthy and qualifyable if you happen to be available and join in when a group of people are getting together to play a game, as it is to be part of a pre-arranged game that has been planned and discussed on the “Weekly Game” thread. Please remember to submit a screenshot afterwards though, along with a brief account of the game if you so wish.

Short questions, long answers! Many thanks!

I realise what I wrote was very French... by precision I meant clarification.

No problem at all. I thought it was worth elaborating so that everyone could see the method in the madness. Well, some method anyway.  :o

I must make up my mind to do a weekly game with so many people and bribe to win it all. (I can give followers clear, abbots and wood chips tunnel :) )
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.

 :white-meeple: My works.

With bribes like that I'm sure you could bribe your way all the way up to the black level before the next competition!  :)

I seem to have a ridiculously low score diferencial. That is goibg to take some serious work to rectify.  Is it just the leagues that count for this?
Just lay the damn tile!

The -107 you ended up with after the first league didn't do you any favours.

Things seem to be heading back in the right direction now though. Don't lose heart!  :neutral-meeple:

EDIT: I forgot to say, leagues and world cups are the only tournaments that count towards this at the moment. Hopefully you can see this from the table. There are links to weekly games and challenge matches for specific achievements but individual scores/ PD from these aren't counted towards the Order. At present, the Last Meeple Standing isn't included either but I might think about how this could be included once it's gone live (rather than the current trial).

It is out of respect for Paul's wishes to not be affiliated with the Order of the Meeple. I have to keep track of his scores on the master list though as the numbers don't add up if anything is missing and I rely on various formulas which take everything into account in order to ensure that I haven't made any mistakes. To keep it simple I just black out his stats.
