Other Online Games - Carcassonne Spin-Offs
« on: April 09, 2016, 07:20:14 AM »
Would someone like to play a game online, perhaps: Carcassonne: Die Burg some time?

There are 3-websites that have many great Euro games online for free:

BrettSpielNetz
Once you've registered you can - http://www.brettspielnetz.de/register.php play Carcassonne: Die Burg!!

http://www.yourturnmyturn.com/

I've only played it once before (physically), I know it's JB's spin-off of choice - so perhaps we can make it a regular thing?

Turns can be taken over a long duration too!

Yucata
While we're listing online sites there is also Yucata too:  http://www.yucata.de/en/CreateGame

They have many HiG games: Stone Age, Yucata, Schweinebande, El Grade, Vikings, Carcassonne H&G, Saint Petersburg, Voyages of Marco Polo and also many other nice games like: Cacao, Jaipur, Castles of Burgundy, Glen More.  These may be nice to try too.  I have used an incognito-m0de to play a quick 2-player game on the same PC, which is very nice is try these games if you are not sure if you want to buy them!

BrettSpielWelt
While we're listing sites, don't forget: http://www.brettspielwelt.de/Spiele/ some Carcassonne is there, but JCloisterZone is better, but they have 7 Wonders & Kingdom Builder too.

I think I'm Decar on all these sites, but perhaps we can share screenames and organize some events to play?

Yucata.de has just announced Carcassonne:South Seas can now be played online  :(y) :(y) :(y)

http://www.yucata.de/en/Rules/CarcSouthSeas

Also, something I didn't know:

Quote
The english original rules states that retrieving an islander is only possible if a player has zero Islanders in her supply. The german rules states that retrieving is possible, if no islander was placed that turn. The implementation at yucata follows the german rules.

The English rule makes more sense to me. Not being able to retrieve while you still have anything left in your hand feels like an appropriate penalty for placing something and then changing your mind about it.

Dan, Halfing and I just played a game of South Seas online.  It was quite slow, but quite fun:

It was all pretty close.  There was a large fishing strip that scored lots of fish, but as a result there wasn't many shells.  I completed a cloister and almost completed my 2nd to get the last ship.  But alas Dan drew the OOOO Cloister and won the game:



Thanks for the game guys:

Dan: 37
Decar: 35
Halfling: 34

My screenshot too:



I think you forgot to mention all the other skill and brilliantness that I did earlier in the game that made me win. It wasn't all about that final cloister. :@

You also forgot to mention that this was the world South Seas championship and that I got a medal as well as a £200 cash prize from you and Halfling.

Thanks for the game guys. :)

I'd love to give South Seas a try, too. Today and tomorrow, I will have to work in the evening. But maybe on Monday?

So I' currently at Yucata, and would like to try out a South Sea game, if anybody is interested.

I have not registered yet, but have been assigned the "Guest211100" account. I'm also in chat right now. So please "call" me, if you want to play a game.

Hounk and I tried a game, while he accidentally started another game. Well, I kind of did start another two games, but I resigned those two. Hounk decided to play both games simultaneously. I can't even imagine how hard it is to keep track of two games in the same time, but Hounk made it, well, and it was to my great advantage.
Yucata lets you undo the meeple and tile placement even after you place a meeple (more generous than JCZ), and this benefit a lot now that we are still trying to figure out a strategy.
You need to click a button to finish your turn! And that did waste some time given that I'm now so used to JCZ. Sorry for all the delays, Hounk!
I managed to ship all the goods I got during the game, and I guess that's why I won this game.

Congrats again. At least I won my second game. Didn't want to undo it, because there was already a participant in it. Yes, it was kind of irritating, but at least the program worked good. Most of the time, as soon as I finished a turn, it told me, that the other game awaits my turn and asked me to switch there.  8)

I include a picture, though made the opponent anonym. If anybody wants another game, I am in chat.

Great to see you both had fun. Yes that finish turn thing caught us more than once!

"Finish the turn" feature is already implemented in the last version of JCZ (confirm follower placement).
