2 games that in the end were probably decided by the city closing tile with the princess on it, once in my favour and once to my opponent.

What If - Clownfeet, 282-218.

What If - Joe Sesquipedalian 188-245




Today sunday I will be in chatroom every full hour to look for opponents. Are there some tournament players who haven´t found the chat? http://sydby.com/carcassonne/irc/index.html

Edit: Corrected the point order for Joe Win.

You still have some serious problems with posting the screenshots ;D I cant see anything.
But congrats to both winners!


Joe and I played our game today. There was not much action, things seemed to get resolved quickly. Dragon was not really hungry, magic tunnel was nearly unused by both of us. Closing one big city with the princess and equal meeple, receiving a lot of goods and being first on some small farms gave me the win. 295-253

Clownfeet, Skane, please tell me when you have time to play. Tomorrow on Sunday evening?

StartPlayer, daliles, you both seem to be out of tournament, or are you still in? No contribution since couple of weeks.

Finished my game with Adrornalin.

As the previous game I started as outsider, till the ~40 tile I was losing by ~40-50 points.
From the start Adrornalin started finishing quite big cities and collecting resources + ate all my first 3 workers with dragon at the start.
Then he started controlling big farmers field, firstly that field was separated in two parts - both those parts was controlled by Adrornalin,
then I saw that bottom part might be closed and Adrornalin will controlling ~20 points till the end, so I decided to connect them and then started trying to
get my workers in there. Firstly I connected one right worker, after that I place top and left worker and lucky for me I received ffrr tile and started controlling field and winning by ~40 points.
Then Adrornalin did huge mistake, he was controlling top cities already with 2 workers, but then when he received city closing tile crfr, he has not closed it but placed
third meeple to get more power instead, He noticed that only after ~5-10 moves + that was his last worker, because of that full game ending he was without workers and my mission was to
not allow him to finish it, what I did successfully.
+ Adrornalin all the time have received dragon replacement tiles and dragon moving tiles, Adrornalin had two tries to ate my farmers at the end,
but Lucky for me the dragon has been on positions where I had possibility to move it near my farmers.
I liked this game, Thank You Adrornalin and good luck in next games ;)

I only can underline that description of our game. Throughout the game I felt that luck is on my side and my decisions will give me the win, but then I made this big mistake. I was not able to close the city completely, but because of the builder in it I may could have closed it with the next tile. Still I was quite sure that I'm gonna close the city and get my meeples back, but due to this mistake I ran out of luck - with all the right to be ;D congrats to Skane!

Cool game vs Clownfeet, with few action and rarely perfect fitting tiles, but with constant critical situations for my farmers due to the dragon and to Clownfeets success in stepping on both farms. Because of trapping some of his meeples and his builder in the middle of the game, I could manage to hold the little points difference until the end. Result 264 - 210. Thanks for playing and again especially for hosting!

I will be around late Friday afternoon and evening (US EDT = UTC -4), and most of the day on Saturday and Sunday.  Let me know if anyone is available for a tournament match.

Gracias,

Joe  :green-meeple:

StartPlayer, daliles, you both seem to be out of tournament, or are you still in? No contribution since couple of weeks.

It would be a shame if they didn't finish - there are prizes for everyone who finishes this year!

My last two games are vs StartPlayer and vs daliles. I really would like to close my fixtures soon. Can you send them an 'official' PM, Decar?  ???

Awaiting opponents I looked through the thread and think this is a correct summary:
Player - played - win - losses - points (if 2p for win)
Adrornalin 5 - 3 - 2 - 6p
Skane 2 -2- 0 - 4p
What If 4-2 -2 - 4p
JoeSesquipedalian 2 - 1 - 1 - 2p
Daromar 1 - 0 - 1 - 0p
Clownfeet 2 - 0 - 2 - 0p
Startplayer
Daliles

Just saying.
