@MrNumbers: Match 111 (or 7 if read in binary) is for you and I. When are you free? Would Friday evening work for you?

For now it looks OK, starting from about 20:30 UK time. In case of force-majeure I'll let you know :)

Well, Khalid and I have finished our season. Time to put dubbing on the boots, take down the nets and get in training for next season.
Tonight's games resulted in that most unusual of phenomena namely, two wins for the away teams.

They were two very different games with Khalid winning the first, rather scrappy game, of blocking and farming. Farming has never really been my strongest card, and I did not fail to disappoint my fans by losing the battle once again. This did not really matter so much as 'highwayman' Khalid grabbing every road that was going begging.

Final score was TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 59 v Khalidqasrawi  :red-meeple: 88

The second game was a lot different and, although I waited for most of the latter part of the game for the remaining FFFF tile (the last one out of the bag) to be able to win the main farm, I failed to farm once again. This time, however, I managed to grab a couple of cities to make up for it.

Final score was Khalidqasrawi  :red-meeple: 105 v TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 110

I started this competition as a 'rookie', having only started playing Carcassonne on Christmas Day 2016, and I thought that I would be trounced in every game. Although I did not manage to win a single match, however, I did win a few games against some well-respected opponents, including Khalid tonight.

I would like to thank everyone in this competition for their matches against me and for treating me with a bit of understanding as the 'new boy'. I would especially like to thank my old friend Adrornalin whom I seem to play more often than most. He is always very supportive and it is largely because of his welcome to the league that I have stuck it out to the bitter end, despite having very little chance of winning the championship. Thanks Adror!!

Lastly, thanks to Danisthirty for arranging and running this great competition.  :(y)

Are we still on for this evening or have you encountered a force-majeure?

Also, any updates from anyone else?

I played my games with MrNumbers this evening:

Game 1: :blue-meeple: danisthirty 126 - 84 MrNumbers (s) :red-meeple:
Game 2: :blue-meeple: danisthirty (s) 114 - 64 MrNumbers :red-meeple:

I enjoyed a lot of good luck in the first game. MrNumbers spent the whole game without two meeples which he committed early to a developing city. He completed the city with the last tile of the game, but I had already gotten myself into a strong position by this point and unfortunately there was no way back for him.

The second game was much more exciting with a big farm battle raging for most of it. I eventually won the farm with 5 meeples against MrNumbers' 4 although if the last two tiles had been switched then MrNumbers would have tied the farm for an additional 24 points.

Many thanks for the games MrNumbers, especially since it would have been 2 hours later for you than it was for me. It felt nice for me to finish with a win as I didn't achieve very many wins in this league! :)

I will post some of my reflections on the league as a whole later, but for now I'm just pleased to report the scores and the attached screenshots.

Hi Halfling,
would Saturday or Sunday evening (after 9 pm CEST) be suitable for you?

I and Halfling have just finished our last games in the Basegame League.
Two games with lots of trappings and low scores, in the end I was able to turn both games in my favour while Halfling had no more followers in his supply.

:yellow-meeple: Halfling (starting) vs :violet-meeple: Leven 84:96

:violet-meeple: Leven (starting) vs :yellow-meeple: Halfling 69:55

Thanks to everyone who participated in this league and particularly to danisthirty as organizer of the tournament. :(y)

 :red-meeple: Rosco versus  :green-meeple: Hounk   -   112  -  94

 :green-meeple: Hounk versus  :red-meeple: Rosco    -    82  -  88

it was nice to finally win something in this tournament - it has not been a very successful one for me.
