Hounk (Home) vs. Adrornalin (Guest) 99:75
Adrornalin (Home) vs. Hounk (Guest) 139:69

Both games evolved around a farm battle, which would by the outcome points not have decided the game anyway. But while Adrornalin managed to score at least some decent points to keep the gap comparably small, I scored to few in between the second game,  so he was able to slightly more then double my points. Both enjoyable games nonetheless.

Farming was the dark art that proved the difference in each game.  A fair tile distribution in each from what I remember.

Carcassonne gods hate me... What can I say, I sent my beloved trophy away.

66 Chooselife (Home) - Merlin_89 93
61 Merlin_89 (Home) - Chooselife 63

I should have won 2nd... Last tile! I led comfortably! WHY? Congrats to Chooselife on not giving up...

Congrats for Jere, as he will clearly top ELO ranking (I'm going way down...).

Jere and I played our round 4 match tonight as Jere has already reported in the above posting. They were two very odd games, in which I managed to lose by 4 points for the second time this week in a game that I thought I was going to win, and in which I won by a flattering margin in a game that I convinced myself I was going to lose.

The battles for the farms in both games made all the difference and I really got upset with myself in the first game having to share the longest road that I have ever built in Carcassonne after what seemed like hours of laying the tarmac.

Well played Jere, and thanks for a most entertaining evening.

Round 4, game 1
101 :yellow-meeple:  Rich_The_Fish (start player) v  98 :violet-meeple:  Leven

A very close game throughout and was decided on the last tile as I managed to get another farmer into play (NE corner) to share the main farm. I did think that the writing was on the wall slightly earlier though when Leven drew not just one but both RFFF right near the end of the game (the first appeared with just 9 tiles left and also ensured his farmer in West joined the farm), to earn an immediate 9 pts x2. However I guess I was a little fortunate he didn't manage to complete his large city in the south as I got the RRCF. A very enjoyable and carefully considered game - thanks.

Another home win:

:violet-meeple: Leven vs :yellow-meeple: Rich_The_Fish 106:62

This time I could win the majority on the main farm (by 5:4) thanks to Rich's trapped knight.
Thanks for the exciting games, Rich.

Match 28: khalidqasrawi vs. glh510

Game 1: 69 - 92 (Home: GLH510)
Game 2: 118-102 (Home: kahildqasrawi)

In the first game khalid blocked 4 of my meeples. So i had to go all in for the big farm. I got all tiles he needed, so the farm was mine.
Second game both of us set there meeple very carefully. At the end i was behind so again i had to go for the main farm. 3 Tiles to go
i placed a perfect buy in. 2 out of 3 tiles suitable for me :-) Kahlid got the other tile. So both remaining tiles are good for me. Kahild managed
to set his tile in a way that he reduced my chances to a 50:50. I used all my luck in the first game ;-)  and drew the wrong one  :(n)

PS: Only screenshot of the first game.

Thanks for playing your matches everyone, and apologies for not doing a better job of keeping track.

I haven't been able to get hold of Marcos for our game despite several PMs and emails so I'm writing here in hope that we can play tomorrow before the round ends...

Anything from Rosco and What If?

Yep, we are unfashionably late, but we played our games today. Final score 1-1 with starting player winning...

My winning game was very close 129-125. I miscalculated the big farm but we split it in the end and I was sure that I´d lost, but I snuck in points apparently somewhere else. I must say that I´ve never felt as outplayed as with Rosco today and I consider my win very lucky. 1-1 feels good.

Maybe I shouldn´t buy kathars, what would I do next?
