I have spot prize suggestions:

Most different scores posted between 570 and 575

Most different colours used

First person to score 572

Player with the (second) best beard

What do you think?

Best beard, ey?

This is a project i´m involved in, the video will be deleted in a few hours from now due to re-editing and stuff, but you may have time to see it and a quite grand beard, if I may say so myself. If you understand swedish, it´s a good song.

Out solo'd and out bearded by the same person!  :-[

I've made a slight modification to my "special" winning criteria in light of that truly magnificent beard...

That's the only prize I could potentially win.  ;D

Reason: Very busy weekend!

Seems you guys had fun! I might try it a bit later. Congrats to the winner!  :(y)

603, wow, impressive.  O0


My last attempt resulted in a sh***y and brainless layout, full of mistakes. But new personal highscore 570pts.  :o

Adrornalin - I'm afraid this entry was about 2hours after the deadline - unless you can work out when American Samoa's time was - on the plus-side you already had the maximum number of entries for optimal spot prize winning :(y) :(y)

What If -  It's safe to say your a Carcassonne Solo Master scoring 603.  It's a mightily impressive beard too, but I don't feel I'm qualified to bestow formally any titles worthy of it.

Dan there is at least one prize you get:  Most number of sequential submissions:

Danisthirty - 575
Danisthirty - 574
Danisthirty - 572
Danisthirty - 571
Danisthirty - 569

Be happy knowing no one else managed to score between 569 and 575, you had them covered.  :(y) :(y)

I'll be posting the final rankings and calculating who won the spot prize in a few minutes.

I very much appreciate the time taken to enter the competition and taking part in our Annual Gencan't competition;  such events give our community a very large boost on the social-media circuits and let other people realize what a great community we have here.  As a small thank you every entry will be given a forum-merit from myself.  Please reciprocate if you feel I've earned it - though they have no worth they're a good way of giving people a wink for the work that they do and letting people know they're doing things you appreciate for the community.

I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I took the challenge of scoring 600+ points rather more seriously than I intended to and as such have probably attempted this more than 100 times! :-[

However, after a score of 597 the day after the competition finished and a 596 yesterday morning I decided to have a few more games this evening as the addiction hadn't gone away and I knew it wouldn't until I'd achieved the impossible difficult. And so, it is with no pride or dignity that I post this, but 100% relief as I've finally broken free of my addiction and can have some of my life back! :@





If only I could have done this two weeks ago! ;)

In an ideal world, the score could have been higher still as I had 3 meeples left in my hand at the end of the game which might have scored between 3 and 6 points each if the last few tiles had come out in a different order. As it was, the little nest I made for the cloisters left me dangerously low on meeples as the second fffr came very late in the game (in fact, I only had my phantom left when it came up which meant I missed out on the 2 points for the road). However, this is certainly the best I'm going to do so I won't be trying to better this!

Lucky I forgot to lock the thread.  A great achievement! I'm glad you'll be able to sleep for the next 50 weeks until next gencant ;)

@Dan: If I understand it correctly, you crossed 600 on this occasion when you got 611? No scores of 608 or such? I didn´t play 100 games, but I lost almost a full weekend and then, after crossing the 600-line I didn´t care anymore about my unfinished 3p road in sw or such and haven´t actually played a game for a week, not even IRL.

Well done!

Thanks. Yes, I was going for 600 too and gave up as soon as I'd beaten it. Compared to how close most of my other scores were, I wasn't expecting to break the 600 point barrier by as much as 11 points and would have been just as happy with 601. Everything just seemed to go well with this game (apart from the lateness of the final cloister).
