Full writeup to come, but I wanted to note the scores before I lose them. It was a win for... khalid >:(

Game 1: khalid (started) - 108 : 93 - danisthirty






Game 2: khalid - 84 : 77 - danisthirty (started)





Two very similar games won by the better player on the night (and most nights so it seems).

Stupid Carcassonne.

Game#1 (Starting player: Chooselife)
:yellow-meeple: Chooselife   70
:red-meeple: Jéré             86

First game was quite close. I had no meeples left in my supply for the last few tiles which was a bit stressful, just played defensively to prevent Chooselife from winning the fields (12 & 9 pts).

Game#2 (Starting player: Jéré)
:red-meeple: Jéré            110
:yellow-meeple: Chooselife  76

Was a bit surprised to see Chooselife miss several occasions to block my meeples. Meanwhile, I blocked two of his guys... that plus one lucky tile at the end helped me to win with a big margin.

Thanks for the games and good luck for the rest of the league.  :(y)

MrNumbers vs. TheSteveAllen
119:103
104:68

First game was almost even, except the moment when Steve chose to close the road instead of escaping the trap for his two followers. We shared two medium-sized cities, that's why my city scores are higher, which made the main difference.

The second game reminded me this game a little bit >:D I had control on both big farms and successfully prevented 3 Steve's followers from joining the party :P That's why my only competed road in this game is that 5-point road in the North, all other road tiles were used for the reason described above.

Good luck with the rest of the tournament, Steve!

Thanks for the write up of the games MrNumbers. I really enjoyed the first one, and got really frustrated with the second. I'm glad to see that I am not the only person that you have given the defend-the-farm-at-all-costs treatment!  ;D

Best of luck with the rest of the competition MrNumbers. Next time I play you, I will do a bit of farmyard defence revision beforehand!

Leven and I finished two astonishing games. We had the first draw in this league :-)

1.Game: GLH510 (Home) 79 : Leven 67
2.Game: Leven(Home) 91 : 91

Leven will post the screenshots and sum up both games.
In the second game he played extremely impressive against the bad luck of card drawing.

I've played two thrilling games with GLH510. Here are the results (starting player first):

:green-meeple: GLH510 vs :violet-meeple: Leven 79:67

A balanced game with lots of stuck followers. GLH510 was able to join a second farmer to the main farm near the end and then it was too late for me to do the same. Winning that farm secured a home win for my opponent.

:violet-meeple: Leven vs :green-meeple: GLH510 91:91

Throughout the game I had the feeling: this was not my game. Nothing worked really for me while my opponent played very well and built a 20 point lead quite early. Moreover, he had all his meeples in his supply (!), while I was struggling to gain any points (for a long period I didn't get a single city closer tile). I knew I had to win the largest farm to have a final result around a tie. In the end I managed to do this but I needed some luck with the last tiles to avoid another defeat. Both my last tile and GLH's last tile was a CCFF, but mine included a pennant. :o

Thanks for these great games, GLH.

Our first draw! As much as I thought about how to handle these, I was never 100% on how they should affect scores. For now I've put the result of match 61 down as 2 - 1 to glh510 with the point distribution being the same as if it had been a 2 - 0 defeat. Any suggestions?

Good luck with your game! I don't know for sure, but please be aware that you might have to upgrade to the latest version of JCZ if you want to play your match on the online server.

Halfling, What If?, Adrornalin and Rosco: any updates?

Any reason why you wouldn't want to give half points? Personally, I'd give 1.5 to glh510 and 0.5 to Leven but maybe you wanted to avoid this for a reason I can't think of right now.

I can't avoid things I hadn't thought of...

My thinking was that if a game is a draw neither player has won. So the outcome of the match would be decided by the winner of the other game. This doesn't seem quite right though, as it does feel like a draw should be rewarded even if the player lost the other game (and consequently the match). I'd be happy to go with 1.5 / 0.5 if others think it's fair/ fitting but am keen to gather opinions at this stage.
