2015 World Cup - Group G
« on: September 01, 2015, 03:59:31 AM »
Welcome to the group stage of the 2015 World Cup of Carcassonne Central! This thread is primarily for members of Group G to arrange matches between themselves and post scores, screenshots and the obligatory smack-talk as the group progresses. The top 2 players from this group once everyone in the group has played all 4 of their matches will advance through to the knockout stage.

Here is a list of the group members (including location):



If you haven’t read them already, please ensure that you are familiar with the tournament rules/ general information (you should also receive this via email). You may also find the JCloisterZone FAQ interesting/ useful if you have any unanswered questions about how JCloisterZone works (or you can just email me).

Good luck, and have fun!

As always, my best hours are weekdays (Mondays-Fridays) in the evening.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9 pm - Midnight (sometimes at 6:30 pm - Midnight if I'm not booked)
Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 pm - Midnight.

If ever find a slot besides these hours, let me know a day / few hours earlier, I'll see if I can make it.

Paul.

Good luck y'all!

Aloha everyone!! :)

For me, the best times would be during evenings, but not too late, because I need my beauty sleep. ;)  :pink-meeple:

Same here, weekdays are best.

So, Mon-Fri after 21:30 (20:30 UK/ 22:30 Finland).

BabyGamer: let me know if it's too late. We can arrange something.

As always, it is best to contact each other via private messages to make appointments.

Good luck!
Jéré

Due to an apparent "bug" with the way River 1 is implemented within JCloisterZone, please avoid using this expansion in your game. At this stage of the competition we will now be using Inns & Cathedrals and King & Robber Baron only.

Paul 185 vs Jere 163

I had the farm in my hand when Jere got lucky placing big follower, standard follower to the right of it and then pulls the cloister with a city from the King expansion.

This done 3 turns in a row and we ended up sharing the farm. But I got a lot of points from completing many small roads which helped me a lot I think.

I also experienced a glitch with the big follower placed on a farm when I did undo it was still marked but placed on the road it placed a standard follower instead. This glitch worked in my favour though.

Congrats Paul. You played well and you deserved to win.

Just one comment though, as we discussed in the game chat, there is an important aspect of the game that you do not understand: the configuration of a tile is defined by the edges, not by the features on the tile.  I tried to explain to you that this cfff with cloister from the King & Baron expansion is quite a common tile, in fact just a cfff tile. So there was no luck there, in my opinion.  C:-)

Dear all in Group G,


I'm free to play most days (working hours). Evenings are often trickier but I can usually be around after 2200 BST.
I'm out tomorrow (Wednesday) evening though.
I'm free from 3pm Saturday and Sunday too.

Yes, but considering the bug chat we had earlier, when you said "it's just a common cfff tile to me" when I said it had a cloister in it, I thought this also was a bug.

How about this Friday then? :) Next week that time might be a bit too late for me... But this Friday (4th) is OK. :)

I have a game at 9PM Finnish time, and when that is done, I could play against you? :)

BTW... What expansions are there in this cup? :)

Hi BabyGamer,

At the group stage it is just Inns & Cathedrals and King & Robber Baron. For the sake of consistency, please do not use The River.

Thanks!

Paul, maybe you want to report this, if it is not already a known bug. I noticed you clicked undo because the tile dissapeared and the large follower was replaced with a normal guy but I think only you can describe what you actually saw on your screen.

I'll add it and hopefully someone else had this glitch.
