I have 16+2 now too. I'm not sure which one I missed the first few times!

After a few false starts we got the game underway once I added the 4.0.0 plug ins.

Rosco took an early lead but I took the city at the top and grabbed a couple of medium sized roads with Inns and had more meeples to throw into different farms as the game closed.

Halfling started.

khalidqasrawi  :red-meeple: 191 : 152  :black1-meeple: Xanderx12

I played conservatively, Xander12 played expansively and in the end, I'm afraid the conservative approach worked out.  That said, it wasn't without risk.  I contributed a lot to Xander12's big city with cathedrals before I finally closed it off.  You know the crude trick of making a cathedral city unfinishable by adding every CCCC and CCC? tile that you get to it.  Too big to fail, quite the opposite, to big to succeed.  Xander12 started the main farm.  I let it happen, then I tried to get on.  He made a vain attempt to get his big man on.  I though he had no chance when I started routing 1 of the two roads northwards.  But he scored 2 FFFR cloisters in a row and "glommed on".  I got lucky to "glom" by big man on.  All in all, an unusal game.  I wasn't expecting to win with roads!

Good luck in the rest of the tournament Xander12.

Just remembered that there is a festival tile field issue.  I think it won't affect the scoring of Halfling vs Xanderx12, but we would appreciate an adjudication to be sure.

thanks

Because you tied the farm that contains the bug, it won't affect the scoring. I have counted the main (only!) farm manually several times and I keep coming up with 57, not 60. I'm counting 17 completed cities, two besieged. Any one else want to count?

So intense! x)

Any one available to play?

So that was a great game - you will guess by my positivity that i won - but it could have gone either way - a few tiles the other way round and Khalid might have had the game.  I was leading from word go but khalid was never far behind.  he successfully got in on both of my cathedral cities and seemed to continually place farmers in perfect places to add on to my farm but didnt have the luck to actually add them. 

This was truly a fun game.  Thanks Khalid!
Khalid started BTW
