Two games I won, one with a lot of luck and one with not so much. All the time my meeples seemed to be trapped they somehow got out, nice! As MrNumbers put it "I´ve never seen anyone so lucky with everything" or something like that  >:D

I can´t seem to upload the screenshots, hmm. Will edit later, just for results then;

First Game: MrNumbers 72 - WhatIf 98

Second Game: WhatIf 103 - MrNumbers84

Good games in which I took the lead in both and was able to keep ahead for 2-0.

Thanks for the games Hounk.

Two more "home" wins (which means that after two rounds there are no more undefeated players left in the league):

1.  :violet-meeple: Leven vs  :black1-meeple: TheSteveAllen 99:74

2.  :black1-meeple: TheSteveAllen vs  :violet-meeple: Leven 102:91

My trapping strategy worked well in the first game, but not so much in the second one where Steve had a considerable lead through the whole game and I just wasn't able to catch him up, despite the fact that he had no more followers in his supply for his last 5 or 6 tiles. With some well-placed tiles Steve successfully prevented me from joining another follower to the big farm, so my only hope for winning the game was the last FFFF cloister tile but in the end it was Steve's final tile.

I assume these results give Merlin_89 the opportunity to regain ELO leadership.

Wow, great stuff everyone. It feels like quite an achievement that we’re almost ready for round 3 already and we’re not even into week 4 yet! 8) :(y)

@Halfling/ Hounk: I like to think I could put Columbo out of a job with my l33t detective skills but, just one more question: who started in each of your games? I need to know for the stats but there isn’t anything to suggest either way from your screenshots so I’m a bit stumped…

@Merlin_89/ Rich_The_Fish: any idea when your match is likely to take place? I will follow this up with a PM just to make myself more difficult to avoid, but I thought I’d ask here too.

Thanks for being awesome everyone. Keep up the good work! :D

Don't worry Dan, scheduling in progress. I expect to play my match against Rich_The_Fish on Sunday. Anyone up for a friendly before then?

Excellent! Thanks for letting me know. :)

I might have a game lined up for this evening already, but I'll be sure to check the chat room if I'm at a loose end...

It's a wrap for round 2! Sorry for taking my time...

Game 1: 38 Rich_The_Fish  :red-meeple: (Home match) - Merlin_89  :yellow-meeple: 80
Game 2: 105 Merlin_89  :yellow-meeple: (Home match) - Rich_The_Fish  :red-meeple: 77

Both games, I was very effective (and lucky) in blocking Rich's meeples... he struggled and improved in 2nd game, but I kept using meeple advantage and he couldn't get out of that trap.

Can't say, this League is exciting, No1 ELO ranking reclaimed...  ;D Round 3 awaits.

Thanks so much everyone for another successful round! C:-)

Here are the standings after 2 rounds:



Congratulations to glh510 who is our leader so far. Will he still be at the top of the board at the end of the next round or might Merlin_89 or Halfling spring ahead of him? Or anyone else for that matter as we've already seen that nobody is unbeatable!

And here are the round 2 stats (brought to you by the colour purple because it's awesome):



3104 points scored in this round compared to the 3148 scored in round 1. Also worth noting that the average winning score at the end of round 1 was also 109, and there has been little movement in the average losing scores and win margins too. And finally, 68.75% of games in this round were won by the player who went first! :o

And lastly but not leastly, here are the scores for those of us who had a guess at what the round 2 match outcomes might be. This just goes to show how unpredictable this game can be!

Chooselife: 1/8 (12.5%) correct
danisthirty: 3/8 (37.5%) correct
Jéré: 4/8 (50%) correct

Right. Onwards and upwards. Time for Round 3! :) :(y)

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

I did take a picture of Round 2-Game 1 finishing screen. (attached).  Good luck (for me) during round 3!
