I think the fact that we're playing with a mixture of expansions that many people don't have a lot of experience with means that some people probably feel a bit daunted about launching into it in the same way as they might for a league based on any of the major expansions that we all know and love so well. Plus, it can be a bit tricky getting any decent practice in with these expansions as even Adda won't play them! I think things should speed up a bit once everyone knows what they're doing a bit...
...and don't underestimate summer factor! During summer time traditionally less games are played.
But nevertheless - keep playing! 8)

I think that the fact that we have started during the holiday period has also had an effect. I, for one, have been unable to play largely due to having visitors staying with me and having commitments with them. Hopefully, things will be back to normal next week.

I'm in the chatroom now, in case anyone would like to practice the minis.

I thought this could be useful for every player in the League, in case you are not reading game reports in other groups than yours.
Then the turning point: again, the crop circle problem. Chooselife made the same mistake that previously thodekey did: he thought that he had to remove a farmer while I chose the other option. So he unintentionally deployed another farmer.
Please, every player in this league, be careful! If you don't see this image in the area of available actions then you can't remove a follower:

Just FYI, over the past weeks there was an issue with the online server and it is now resolved. Thanks to Farin.  :(y)

Some of you might have noticed that there was an accumulation of inactive games and it became impossible to scroll down the list to find any newly created games. The workaround was to create a game, quit and re-join the same game, so that it would appear near the top of the list.

Important information!

Since current Minis League participant Singing Dwarf continuously doesn't answer to any PMs and e-mails, I have nothing left but to disqualify him and announce a replacement. Who are willing to take his place? He haven't played any games, so your "history" will be clear :)

I seem to remember someone asking to take part after the competition had started but can't find any record of it now. I thought I'd added their name to the waiting list but evidently it wasn't for this league if that was the case as there's nobody there who joined the list recently.

Welcome to the league! (whoever it is :) )

You probably mean this post :) I've already sent him PM yesterday late evening, but he doesn't seem to visit forum so frequently.

How are you getting on ARabidMeerkat? If you need any help with JCZ then there are lots of people on hand here to help out!

If it helps you to prepare, there's something you should know: "You're a wizard, ARabidMeerkat..."
