What If?, Rosco & Danisthirty have 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions at the moment.  Will someone be able to breach 600 before Monday's deadline?

Keep the entries coming in. Every submission adds to your chances of winning the spot prize (up to 6 submissions if you tweet)!

Thanks to everyone who has taken part!

Welcome to the competition Leven! What's kept you?

I tried it as purple this time but it didn't help. :( Still, 11 times around the score track:



I know I missed a 9-point farm but with 4 tiles left to go didn't draw a single road tile that would let me connect to it...

Heroically snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 2018

That's an impressive score Dan considering you had 2 meeple in hand and one city with both cathedrals in it!

Second attempt was even worse, 480 something, second cathedral came to late, and I still tried to finish it and was one city cap short of doing so.

Third attempt was only a slight improvement to the second one, thanks to poor farm scoring. Got overexcited about the second cathedral and even forgot my pig. (Although it would have been 8 points at best anyway.) Good work on cloisters on this try, though. 507 points.

WhatIf, do you study city architecture? The current highscore layout looks like real building plan. Well done!!

So, finally over 600 with a grand total of 603!

On the good side, every shield came into a cathedral city, most open roads are one tile stumps and there is only two small unfarmed fields. But there is also a very annoying 6p-cloister, one unclosed inn-road and quite a lot of small city pieces so there should be more to be had, but this is my final attempt.



(and, yes, I almost learned how to shrink images, two good things in one day!)

When you lose, do not look at what you lost, but what's left to win ..

Only 4 hour remain in this contest - this is longer than other #gencant contests but I've given everyone until Monday (American Samoa Time) to submit entries!

WhatIf? It's good to know there's still a chance for improvement, but better to know 603 is achievable. It nicely reflects the 30e highscore from last year....but there's still time to be beaten ;) ;)

My best attempt: 588 pts.
Actually I miscounted the tiles and expected a CFRR as last tile. By placing that into the hole in the center I could have reached 600 pts.
Congrats to WhatIf who did it.

2 more from me, but nothing that's going to challenge any of the leaders. Still, a 2pt PB taking my best up to 574...





I need to break this addiction now so I'm going cold turkey. Well done to everyone who has taken part and a huge thanks to Decar for organising Carcassonne Central's gencant offerings this year (as well as last). I'm sure you'll agree it's been great fun and I already know that his Solomo variant is something that I'm going to be playing for a while to come! :) :(y)
