The 'Alternative' World Cup League
« on: February 14, 2018, 05:29:15 AM »
Mr Numbers did a random draw for me this morning, and I am proud to announce the fixtures of the 'Alternative' World Cup, which starts today and finished at midnight GMT on the day that the 'real' final is played.

I have broken the fixtures into three group, according to the set of expansions being used. These are:-

Using the Final Configuration

1   Thodekey v Chooselife   

2   Halfling v Rosco   256 - 381

3   Rosco v Hounk   

4   Hounk v Jungleboy

5   TheSteveAllen v Sinscerely   

6    Jungleboy v   Halfling   

7   Chooselife v   TheSteveAllen   

8   Sinscerely v   Thodekey    204 - 352

Using the Semi - Final Configuration
         
9   Thodekey   v Halfling   163 - 241

10   Chooselife   v Rosco 155 - 202   

11   Hounk   v TheSteveAllen    197 - 224

12   Jungleboy   v Sinscerely   

13   Thodekey   v Hounk   225 - 228

14   Chooselife   v Jungleboy   267 - 207

15   Halfling   v TheSteveAllen    217 - 184

16   Rosco         v Sinscerely

Using the Quarter Final Configuration
         
17   Thodekey   v Rosco   

18   Chooselife   v Halfling   

19   Halfling   v Hounk   

20   Rosco           v Jungleboy   

21   Jungleboy   v TheSteveAllen    340-303

22   Hounk   v Sinscerely   

23   TheSteveAllen   v Thodekey 236 - 322   

24   Jungleboy   v Thodekey   

25   Sinscerely   v Chooselife   300 - 248

26   Halfling   v Sinscerely   

27   Rosco    v TheSteveAllen   322 - 329

28   Chooselife   v Hounk   

Each competitor can play up to 7 matches, as given above, but must play at least 3 matches to qualify and be included in the championship table. In addition, each player must play each set of configurations (QF, SF and Final). Games can be played in any order. As usual, there is no Home or Away player, so use a random starter.

Once the first player has met these requirements, I will be making a 'league table' of all those that have so far qualified, which will be kept up to date on this thread.

The table will be according to score difference, and not according to wins (as other leagues). This should mean that the first place is up for grabs right until the very end of the tournament.

In addition to point difference, there will be a 30 point bonus for winning a match, or 30 points each in the event of a draw.

Please post the results of your games along with the game number (as given above) on this thread so that I can keep a tally at my end, and update the table.


This competition is designed to have all matches completed by the end but, given the lengths of the games, I realise that this is impossible to achieve. I only ask, therefore, that despite having a real life too, you all try to play as many of your 7 fixtures as possible.

Any questions? Please post on this thread.

Good luck to all and a big 'Thanks' for entering!

The configurations for the games are copied here:-

QF:
Traders and Builders + Abbey and Mayor + The Corn Circles + The Count of Carcassonne + GQ11 + The Phantom = 123 tiles (starting tile and 2 tiles from GQ11 are excluded).
GQ11 option "The Pig herd is present on the farm tile" is ON.

SF:
Inns and Cathedrals + The Tower + The Festival + The Goldmines + The German Monasteries + Mage and Witch = 134 tiles (cloisters from the base game have to be removed).

Final:
Traders and Builders + The Princess and The Dragon + Bridges, Castles and Bazaars + The River II + The Besiegers + The Flier + The Phantom = 163 tiles (starting tile is excluded).

I would like to say "Don't worry, there is plenty of time to play your matches". Then I realised that you were relying on BT!!  :(

Keep us posted. We will work around it.  :(y)

If you come last, you get relegated to the Scottish Premiership.  :))

I'll join  O0 but will take some time to get there as my public transportation pass will only get me to Belgium so I have to do the last part on bike and I have to swim to the other side of the channel  8) Or I can go find that beautiful tunnel they made :))

4.3.0 is the current version Richard. The only thing that we have found that does not work properly on this is the ferries, and they are not included.

Hi Steve I will be available tomorrow or this evening, but I have to finish something for school so don't know how much time that is taking as I only have 3.5 hours for that to submit ::)
