:red-meeple: Rosco vs :violet-meeple: Leven 176:190

Despite reaching a new personal gold-collecting record there was no real chance to win this game by the required huge PD. Rosco took some risk by claiming almost every cloister he drew (he scored a remarkable 45 points through cloisters), but eventually he survived my trapping attempts (for this he needed both the last CRRF and the last CFRR tile). Then having his followers back he could also equalize the majority on the main farm. (And in the end he made the same mistake that thodekey and Chooselife did previously: at the last CC-tile he thought that he had to remove one of his knights and unintentionally deployed another knight to his city. Fortunately this happened near the end, it probably didn't affect the outcome of the game.)

Thanks for the game Rosco. And congrats to danisthirty for winning the group. Good luck in the final. :(y)

Thanks Leven. This has been a very tight group with two players finishing without any lost games for either of them!

Congratulations on your finishing position too, even if it isn't the one you deserved, and good luck with the rest if the tournament!

My first win in 4 games. And I won only with LAST tile, taking control over huge farm. I can echo myself - there is so much luck involved in these mini-expansions!

Looks like Rosco could have prevented your farmer from joining the main field with his last tile!!

Since Rosco started the game, he could prevent me from joining with his one-before-last tile, and it was crrr (with Mage), so this tile also qualifies as a farmer joining prevention tile, and I told that to Rosco after the game. My small mistake was I didn't put a follower on other farmer joining tile (crfr tile on the west) to gain 3 points. But anyway, if Rosco even would prevent me from joining, I would have won by 1 or 2 points: Rosco wouldn't receive 1 point to his city, and I would receive, for example, 4 points instead of 3.

Don't worry we all know the outcome.  Rosco for last place.  I think I am going to leave Carcassonne leagues for a while after this.  I have had a monumentas losing streak and don't seem to be able to turn it around.  I am getting fairly frustrated with it all.  I will finish the leagues i am in so as not to let anyone down.

Sorry to hear that, Rosco.  I remember we had a flip-coin game that could have easily turned out the other way.  Most important is you still have fun playing it. 
And for your last game of the Fliers League: i wouldn't be too sure to loose...every game has to be played.  Anyway, good luck to the both of you and...ENJOY!

Really sorry to hear read this dude. It can be rough when it feels like the tiles are constantly against you and you can't seem to shake it off. We've all been there though, with unlucky streaks, and the universe does eventually play fair and right itself. Things got so bad for me once that I almost lost a game to jungleboy :o but eventually the tide turned and I'm world champion again, even if only in my mind.

Fingers crossed that your mojo returns soon without you having to miss any competitions...

I believe this one closes the group. Although I made an early error by giving rosco a lot of gold I ended up using flyers to my advantage and finally won a game.
