Incredible good game played by JoeS Whatif and me. we used T&B, P&D, BCB, GQ11, Festival, Gold, Phantom. nearly every drawn tile was cruel and changed situations and everyones options a lot. additionally the dragon was super-hungry sometimes.

I completely ignored the battle for the big city north-east, placing a castle nearby was never possible, and concentrated on entering and saving some good farmers places, after the dragon ate two of Joes farmers who had the farm lead at that time. WhatIf made a little mistake with moving the dragon and had to eat his own meeple who saved 3 gold nuggets on a road. Luckily I draw a magic portal and placed a meeple on the cloister in the middle on the now closed road of gold. With some tactical chosement of bazaar tiles, I took the point lead till the last few tiles. Then I also made a mistake by moving the dragon and it ate again two yellow and a red farmer in the south-east on the big farm, so black was now 2:1:1 in front. But that move turned out to be indirectly advantageous for me, because I teased the others with placing a farmer directly next to the dragon so they had to decide which direction, and I could connect my farmer again to the east farm with the very next tile. So I was in front, but WhatIf very close behind. Luckily he couldnt take the majority in the big city, where Joe kicked his waiting meeple out with the princess with his last tile.

So now I had one tile left, the CRFR tile in the south. I placed it next to WhatIfs nearly finished city, which would have given him the overall win, and I placed a meeple plus the phantom meeple on it, to secure my last chance making some points on the big farm and to prevent WhatIf from closing his city easily. Finally, he really draw a fitting tile (that CFFF tile with the dragon symbol), put a bridge on it and closed his city, but with same step my two farmer meeples went on the farm from both road sides! 3:2:1 now, 44 pts and victory was mine - I thought. but I forgot the dragons last journey. Luckily he stopped one tile away from one of my farmer.

What a competitive game, I totally forgot time. Everyone of us had deserved to win that friendly. Thank you guys, that was so much fun! We should have recorded it haha

That's a good question. I don't remember. Maybe 2,5h.

If possible, we arrange a re-match today, same place, same time.  :)

I've played with Valheruu a friendly game - CC-base game - today.

kettlefish 119 - Valheruu 107

It was a fun game. Early in the game was a fight for the big city.
I had 3 Meeples inside and Valheruu 2 Meeples. I've got the right tile
to close the city with the last 10 tiles or so.

Thanks for the game Valheruu.

Today I thought to play a friendly game against danisthirty, but he was not online. Jungleboy instead likes to play. So we played a base game.
I have to say, jungleboy is a great player. I've asked about a really friendly (just for fun or funny) game - build together big cities without the hard fight for the mayority. He decided to play more tournament like hard. In the first part of the game he has more than 30 points more than me, but I was lucky to get back the mayority of my big city and I was happy to get the tile to finish that city. Than we run the most time with simular score. Jungleboy didn't get the mayority only for himself at the big farm - we both have one farmer placed onto the farm. I've placed some farmers onto smaller farms too.

Thanks for the game jungleboy - perhaps we can play again even that you prefer to play more tournament like...
I see I have a small chance to win - but I am not sure if  I would win the next time.

The final score:
kettlefish 122 / jungleboy 120

Jungleboy and I played again the base game - the revange.
This time jungleboy was happy to win with almost the last few tiles.
It was a very interesting game, because till almost to the end we don't know who will get the importent few points more than the other player.
jungleboy: 102 - kettlefish: 97

With both games - jungleboy win the match with a score difference of 3 points.
Here in both games was jungleboy the start player.

jungleboy, thank you for the game.

Just had a very enjoyable game with B1nder.
We took 2 expansions each: my pick were T&B and Phantom, B1nder chose I&C and Crop Circles.
Score doesn't represent the outcome correctly: B1nder is a very good opponent and fought till the end. He just didn't familiar with Crop Circles mechanics, so he just kept adding more and more robbers to his already dead road. I was able to take away 32-points farm only with 3 tiles to go, and with last tile I took 15 points farm (from which I was forced to remove a farmer earlier).
Once again, thanks for a nice game, B1nder!
