Expansion League #7: Carcassonne Minis - SIGN UP HERE!
« on: May 31, 2017, 12:44:07 PM »
So, the first League, which I was the responsible of, is over for a while ago. We have voted for the next League, but unexpected comeback of Farin, the author of JCZ, slightly changed our plans and gave us hope that we will have the full implementation of the big expansion #6 soon in JCZ. This was the main reason why I want to postpone expansion #6 and play Carcassonne Minis League instead. Hello and welcome, ladies and gentlemen! :D

We will play with all available expansions from Carcassonne Minis series, including Flier, Goldmines, Mage and Witch and Crop Circles II. This is 30 additional tiles (8+8+8+6), which makes all matches must be played with total of 102 tiles including classic start tile. This is the same amount of tiles, which we played in P&D expansion. Let's hope the outcome of this competition will be the same :P

Maximum amount of players is not defined, let's see how many players we will get, and then I will decide, how many groups we will have. The registration gates will be opened for about 2 weeks.

Please confirm that you have read our Code of Conduct before signing up to take part, to ensure that you have a proper idea of what is expected of you individually in order for this competition to be successful and enjoyable for everyone. Tournament rules will be similar to previous Expansion League so most of you are familiar with them, but still I will publish the rules together with groups' breakdowns later.

Good luck! :(y)

Just played 2 training games against Khalidqasrawi and earlier this week against TheSteveAllen and i must say: those 4 mini's are a nice surprise and the base for some heavy battles...this League will rock!

Khalid (:red-meeple:) and I (:blue-meeple:) just played our first match of this "Mixed Mini" league. He had the lead from start to finish owing to a nice 20-point city that he was gifted at the start of the game, but overall the fact that I drew all of the Goldmines tiles (something that Khalid didn't take well! >:() gave me an advantage in scoring well with the gold bars. Still, being relatively new to Goldmines I had no idea that a difference of 6 gold bars between us would be worth 32 points in my favour...





The majority of the Fliers tiles didn't make a huge difference although a couple of them were well used to share or steal mostly roads (especially ones with gold on them). I think we were pretty even on these, but I had very little control over the Mage & Witch tiles as Khalid drew all but 1 of these and generated some good points with the Mage (as well as routinely dropping the Witch onto features of mine).

We fought a little over the farm to the East which I was the first to claim. The battle escalated quickly though and within the space of about a dozen tiles it was 2 - 2 and then 3 - 2 in my favour when Khalid made a mistake with his road. I then drew the final CC tile (with pitchfork) and so forced us both to lose a farmer. This gave us both a meeple back but meant I retained control of the farm. If Khalid had drawn this tile he could have opted to add another farmer to it, which I wouldn't have been able to do as I had no more meeples in my supply and the farm would have settled at 3 each.

I was a little surprised by the final scores, mostly because of the difference all the gold made. Ultimately though, the points difference doesn't represent how close this game really was, as in actual fact I should have won by at least 100 points and Khalid was lucky to score anything at all against my superior skill and intellect. 8)

Thanks for the game Khalid, and good luck in the rest of the competition! :) :(y)

I must recognise skill, intellect and good humour when it presents itself.  But sometimes you have to share a little more Dan.  Keeping all the gold for yourself when others work hard and get none is nearly as bad for the game as tile counting.

Touche!

Let's not let our mutual desire to have all the gold spoil a beautiful friendship... :-*

:blue-meeple: danwasthirty 5 : 384 khalidqasrawi  :red-meeple:


I had my match against danwasthirty this evening.  It went rather better than my previous match so it seems I'm back to my lucky tile drawing self.  Poor danwasthirty didn't collect any of the gold or any other proper tiles at all.  I did start with a rather huge city, created lots of smaller cities to populate my farm then sat on pretty much all of the gold.  The mage was often on my cities too so that helped.  I left a bar on the table for danwasthirty but I think, sadly, it was out of reach for him.  In the end, he made a hopeful attempt to get on my farm and I gave him a few points on that city - I mean, you can't have it all can you.  I'm all for social justice.

Well played danwasthirty.  I think your luck will turn soon.
