Yes, it was excellent, but very exhausting game. Khalid constantly was just around the corner in points, 3-4 tiles before the end of the game the difference was just 3 points! I was trying to trap some Khalid's meeples, but succeeded only once. Khalid had some great moves, for example, with cfcf splitter tile in the middle he simultaneously completed 2 cities and 1 cloister, scoring 25 points! I knew that my opponent likes late farming, so I was afraid he will start massive farm attack near the end. He actually did, but I was able to defend all my farms. Another task was not to let Khalid to connect to my unfinished city, which also wasn't so easy.
With this game Khalid proved that he is in ELO top-10 for a reason :)

At last Khalid and I were online together.  A very close game that was decided with the final tile which was a monastery with a single road.  A frustrating end for Khalid as I was chasing him all the way and this was one of maybe two times in the whole game that I was ahead.
Khalid    :red-meeple: 172
Halfling  :yellow-meeple: 177

The dragon arrived late but he had his fill of meeples!

Thanks for the game.

I'm feeling quite sore about this.  The lesson is when you have the advantage, and play defensively, you will eventually lose.  A lesson for life in general I suppose.  Thanks for the game Halfing and well played.

I'm due to play MrNumbers tonight. Probably won't be able to play my 2 remaining games until after the weekend, but I'm off work next week so things should be much easier (particularly where time differences are concerned).

Did you read the disclaimer at the bottom of the competition rules where I mentioned that I won't be held responsible for anyone losing their job as a result of being part of the competition? Just saying... ;)

Don't worry my boss knows on what he can count on.
