Only against an AI opponent (and a pretty dumb one at that)...

I'm going to tell her you said that. I imagine you'll be on the receiving end of some pretty serious Ninja Fairy Magic...

I'm guessing that clubb closed the city with all those lovely trade goods? Tricky to match that!

Hi Dan,

Yes he did.  A close game.  I preferred the original game that we were playing but JCZ hung with a nullpointerexception error so we had to restart.

regards Halfling

I thought I share this very enjoyable friendly game vs Merlin_89, even if I lost 351 to 380. We played with T&B, A&M and the Fliers. It went well for both of us in the beginning, I placed my farm in the north, he placed it a few tiles later in the south, points were nearly equal. Since I recognized, that his towns developed better in the south than mine in the north, I got the chance to connect both farms with a cloister and I did it. After that, a lot of farming started. In the end, Merlin deserved the win, because he realized the quickfarming opportunities sooner than me. The results difference of ~30 points is exactly what one farmer+pig earned.

One strange thing occured with the big town in the east: I occupied it with my major quite a long time, then his major was about to fly in. The dice showed two and his yellow major flew directly on my red majors position. But it was displayed only my red major on top, the yellow major was behind and not visible in my view. (Maybe it was the other way round in Merlins view?!) So I thought he forget to place it before or after rolling the dice or anything like that. I'm not sure anymore but in the first moment I thought I saw his major back on the right side, where all meeples are waiting for action. Finally, after building and building onto the big city myself, Merlin finished it with placing the abby and I was completely confused about that move, as I thought my major is the big boss in there. But he had a very close neighbour  :)) :))

Conclusion: Great game!! O0 And there is always a lesson to learn with Carc and JCZ.

Normally it should show in JCZ, if two meeples share a tile, but one of them would only be like a second outline of the other one.

However, looks like you had a great game. I also like the combination of these expansions. Barn and Pig is awesome, as is Mayor and Fliers.

Enjoyed a friendly with Adrornalin a couple of days ago.  The River, Inns & Cathedrals, Festival and Mage and Witch.  It was a close match thoroughout but Adror won thanks to his superior farming skills.

..and another one. this time with T&B, A&M, Winter, Fliers and Phantom. Halfling took the far lead until the middle of the game, then it got closer, but I was behind the whole time. I achieved to turn it around with the last tiles, because my builder did some good work, while his builder had not enough space in his city to continue on working ; ) so out of the last, lets say 10 tiles, 7 were mine. this was a big advantage and because I saved my abby wisely I could close the last battled city in the south, which got me important points by goods and farmer.
It was an enjoyable game, with no farming points with farmer sneaking on the barns, because the amount of cities developed late, and with no meeple trapping because both sides had always a much better reason to use their tiles for own advantage than for opponents disadvantage.
thanks Halfling for playing!

 :yellow-meeple: Halfling 202
 :blue-meeple: Whatif 170
An impromptu game against Whatif that was decided by the big city that I was lucky enough to complete and glom in a third meeple.

Seems like people voted for this expansion for the next league... Even though, in theory, it shouldn't be before the end of this year (I expect early 2017), I'd be keen to practice. Feel free to contact me!
