Just a crazy idea, but if anyone wants to PM or email me their predictions for this round in terms of who will be the winner/ loser of each match (of if it will be tied) then I could track “most correct predictions” as well as everything else and run this as a side-competition?

Predictions themselves would be kept between me and you as I don’t want to risk offending anyone who finds out that 10 people bet that they would lose their match against whoever. But I could do a summary of correct predictions per round along with the end of round summary. Like I said, it’s just an idea, but if you’re interested do get your predictions in to me before the results start flooding in...

Rosco has suggested that he will be free this evening so I'm hoping we can play then.

Is anyone else playing or speaking with their opponent to arrange their match times? I'm a little concerned that we're almost halfway through the round and nobody has played any games yet! ???

Yep, Adrornalin and I have our games scheduled tomorrow night at 21:30.

I exchanged messages with Khalid but unfortunatly my weekend went from slow to crazy in one trip to IKEA, so I missed his availability.
We should be able to arrange something during the week.

So a nice win for me on our first game.  I was surprised TBH as Dan was seriously keeping me at bay!  He started really poorly through no fault of his own with road after road after road!  But suddenly his luck changed and he got everything and i mean everything i needed.  But a little luck went my way and I sealed the win!

Just lay the damn tile!

A very curious thing occurred at the end of my second game with Rosco; something for which I was completely unprepared. I don't know if it was a bug in JCloisterZone or quite what, but at the end of the game when the final scores were calculated it turned out that the total number of points scored by me was actually slightly higher than the sum of the points score by my opponent! ???

I had to look up what this meant and eventually found some obscure reference suggesting that I had "won" the game and in doing so had become a "winner" of that particular game. Obviously this is a concept of which I am totally unfamiliar but apparently it seems as though "winning" is something that should be strived for.

Screenshot attached below. Final scores were 112 - 81 in my favour. So overall the match was 1 - 1 and both Rosco and I won the games in which we got to place the first tile.

Game 1 Chooselife  :yellow-meeple: 92 : 95  :red-meeple: khalidqasrawi
Game 2 khalidqasrawi  :red-meeple: 133 : 90  :yellow-meeple: Chooselife

Game 1

Not quite sure how I scraped this win.  I was losing all the time.  He started very strong but I trapped 1 or 2 of his meeples.  I won a small farm but only just and he had good farm fragments too.

Game 2
A stronger win for me.  I was ahead most of the game and then placed 2 crucial CCCR tiles to complete lots of features and return most of my meeples for the end game.

Told you one day in the chat I was looking for the English equivalent of "Bête noire" in French. I finally found it.

First I found some occurences of the untranslated expression in English texts: bete noire (in italic and without accent) so it appears that it is used in English too. Then after digging a little bit further, I found nemesis! If not equivalent, then it's very very close, like in the expression "Rosco is your Carcassone nemesis".  ;D

Marcos had a lot of trouble with the internet connection and smartphone battery.
We played with the Android App.
So no screenshots, only the result:

First Game
GLH510 vs Marcos
162 : 103

Second Game
Marcos vs GLH510
77:123

Thank you Marcos that you tried everything to make the games possible.

[Edit]: Screenshot from game 2

Mixed feelings about these 2 games.
Adrornalin played very well! but at the same time it seems that I just couldn't get the tiles I needed tonight.

Starting player in bold

Game 1
Adrornalin   110
Jéré                94



Game 2
Jéré            95
Adrornalin   88

thanks for the games. yep first game was quite even, I was lucky with the CCCR in the shared city and with the last RRFF to connect us both to the shared farm. second game you could have won with clearly more points difference, but last CRFR and last two RRRF came to me. no big trapping at all because we both were aware of critical situations and found always some options to escape. good luck for the rest of league, jere!
