Yep, congrats on a good win.  I must learn how to complete my cities!

I must learn how to complete cities!

You already know how to complete them, you completed most of mine for the trade goods!!  :o
Who got a smudge on the tile?

AndrewtheAmbo 264 : Chuck 181

First game down, and it all came down to a big city that Chuck regrets not closing off. I needed a CFRX tile to close it for probably half the game, and eventually got it, with a huge swag of city poits, and also trade goods.
Aftre completing it, Chuck did mention he had thought of enclosing that tile to limit my options. Chuck, I would have, as it was quite easy to do.

Other than that, we had a good battle for farms, although I did make a mistake that did allow Chuck to draw on the main farm.

Good game, thanks Chuck.

Game 2

AndrewtheAmbo 249 : Halfling 208

We both felt we were behind in this game, although by midway, I was starting to think it was pretty even.
Halfling was aggresive with his trapping, and I was trying to gloom into his cities. I felt whenever I would start to do a trap, he would get the next tile to prevent it.
Looked like the game would come down to a big city with lots of good. I got the tile to close it, but with less than 30 odd  tiles to go, thought I would forsake the goods as it trapped his meeples and only one of mine. I thought it was the last CCCR, but he got one 10 tiles later.
Meanwhile, with my mepple numbers, I was starting to concentrate of farms, and using my city/builder down the bottom to reduce the tiles he got. It worked, and I managed to neutralise his big farm and win the game.

After being outmanned in the cathedral city I was running to catch up for the rest of the game.  Closing a city to get points and tokens gave me hope but I was ultimately out farmed.  2 similar score losses on one night was hard to take.

Yeah, again I made too much mistakes. And letting Andrew trap my builder didn't help me any further....
I hope to gain a victory against either Mr. Numbers or zone 2.

Good game between AndrewtheAmbo and I.  I managed to draw the tiles I need to prevent AndrewtheAmbo from sabotaging the big cathedral city, ensuring my victory.  Using my megameeple to equalize the large farm at the end just added padding to the win.

Thanks for the great game AndrewtheAmbo, and thanks for hosting!!!!

This always felt like a game I was going to loose. It was just how much by. At one stage near the end I had ownership of the main farm, but then Joe suck back in again.

3 down, 2 to go.

So, I'm officially out of the championship... the last game against zone2 has no chance of getting me further.

I managed a win in a very close game.  Last tile confirmed it for me.
