Me and JoeSesquipedalian just had the amazing game, most of the game time I was loosing, during game we had +- equal points,
but from the beggining JoeSesquipedalian had power on good farmers field and at the end he had big city that was 1 tile away from closing.
I had to do something with that field and most of game time I tryed to connect to it,
but immediately JoeSesquipedalian was able to minimize or block my chances for connect.
But when there were ~12 tiles remaning, luck was on my side, I got eqaul count of farmers at that field and got chance to get power too,
Till the end we both waited for 1 tile (CCFF-separator). He needed it to finish his city (18 point) and I needed it to get power on the field.
As you can see, that tile came to me, and it helped me win with 4 point power only. That was realy good and tough game.
Thanks You JoeSesquipedalian and good luck in next games :violet-meeple:

First game down.  I've played Daromar (his user name on JCZ being his name not this username) in group B.  screen shot of final score attached.  I won the game 106-77.  If this all I need?

just played another group B game.  This was against Adrornalin.  I won with an incredibly close score of 75-74.  took screen shot at too large a size to post so had to shrink it a bit but info still readable!

as you said, incredibly close. at least I made no mistakes this time. dont know what I could have done better, prevented a lot of meeples from locking and additionally building useful advantages with these tiles. in the end it was your smart move with the farmer and the very last tile that secured you 2 points and the win (a street would have been 0 points), although you were in front most of the time so I didnt expect it to be so close at the end. thx for playing Startplayer.

Daromar, how about our game, which time is it possible for you?

I really wasn't sure about that move with the farmer at the end as it was my last meeple.  I think I was also fortunate you didn't get the tile to finish the city in North that got you 3 points.  I could see that around it getting longer and too and just hoped it didn't finish.

Well Done StartPlayer!

Thanks to everyone organizing your games so quickly.  Don't be disheartened if you've lost a game - there'll be plenty of opportunities to win games in future rounds!

And another result from the very eager group B, What If-Daromar 118-97.

An early farmer from WI prompted D to get two farmers in there. WI stole the large city and tried to get a farmer in the major field. The first one got disarmed on the very next tile and in the end it was a long wait for WI waiting for the curve to share the field. Enjoyed it and thank Daromar for the patience.
Oops, sorry for the big pic.
Maybe I shouldn´t buy kathars, what would I do next?

Hi all. Me and Olya just had our game. it was a really nervy start and some good back and forth on the small cities and roads. A big city started to form down in the bottom of the map and there was some great competition for it for a while until it became blocked and only accesible with two tiles. i managed to sneak another meeple in on the right which basically secured the city. Things then moved on to farms and a discard city up top which developed too much for anyone to ignore anymore and i snook a meeple in there nearing the end to dump some final city tiles in it and rack up a few points. There was a great farm battle in the middle and top right before i snagged a second meeple into the top and Olya a second one into the middle.

Scores on the doors

Clownfeet 81 - Olya 70
