helloooo!!!
ok, normally I'm free to play every days from 21:00 to 23:00 and Monday Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 to 12:00.
I could have some problem for the work but, if I can play, if there is no a planned match, I can stay in the chatroom watching sometimes if someone arrive to play... in this case is better to send me a private message to wake me up!
good luck to all! ;)

Hi!

I'm travelling right now, I was supposed to be back already but had to stay abroad one more week. Earliest I can play is Saturday. Will be available next week, everyday after 21:30.

Skane: I'd like to play our game in Essen if that's ok with you, on Saturday maybe?

Hello there,

I will be in the chatroom every evening from 20:00 until open end this week and waiting for you to play our games.

Due to a currently instable connection, it would be good of there is always a host around.

Thanks for organizing, Dan.

:)

Finished my game with Adrornalin

There was all in this game, big points power at the beginning, problems with server, awesome comeback, hope and dramatic ending.
Adrornalin started well, but then I successfully minimized chances to finish bottom city and road and blocked 2 meeples till the end,
then got possibility to get power and finish top city (54 points) + bunch of resources. After that we thought that there is quite small chances for me to lose.
But then some problems with server acquired and we spent some long time to get back into game, thanks danisthirty who helped us by hosting saved game.
After that Adrornalin started performing awesome comeback, he started trying to win big farmers field and finish big city on top right corner
+ there has been chance to finish bottom city and road till the 13 tile, when it finally came to me, also he had chance to share farmers field,
but final rrff tile came to me eather. So Adrornalin did great job, but lucky was on my side. For me game ending was nervous and I started counting base game tiles.
Thank you Adrornalin for awesome game and good luck  :violet-meeple:

Not the best start in the World Cup for me. Skane drew the tiles for my unfinished 50 pts city, unfinished 30 pts cathedral city and unfinished 18 pts inn road. And he managed to close a 54 pts cathedral city himself. But in the end the effort counting bg tiles shall pay off, so I only can congratulate you on your win :) Looking forward to next games! :yellow-meeple:

Finished my game with aenima.

Mixed filings about this game, I have played this game aggressively and a lot of time spent to build traps around that huge bottom city
and aenima has not tried too much to get safe, he continued building it up and giving me more possibilities to ruin it, instead of closing it and waiting for one needed tile to fit it and finish it, as I did with top right city, I closed it and then waited for cfcf tile to finish it.
In this game I have finished a lot of cities and they were fully filled with resources, as You can see 120 point for cities + 30 points for resources, total 150/220 only for cities building. Also I got lucky, to fit in two tiles in the middle right, on first one I placed farmer, on second I placed pig and with phantom I finished 2 point road instead of 4 point city xD (don't know why)
At  the end aenima started pushing all his workers into all available farmers fields, but there was no chance to catch me without closing one big city.
Thank You aenima and good luck in next rounds.  :violet-meeple:
