After a long pause in proceedings, Match 11 finally took place tonight with Hounk and myself battling over the Semi-Finals set-up.

This game was a very evenly balanced match which I feel very fortunate to win after making several stupid mistakes. Unusually, this did not end up as a farm battle, which is always a pleasant surprise!

The result was TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 224 v Hounk  :black1-meeple: 197

Most of the interest in this game focussed on who could protect their abbots. This is a battle that I actually won, thanks to drawing the appropriate towers at the right time.

Thanks for the game Hounk, and I hope that you have equally good matches with the rest of the guys!

Hello,

I can and would like to play this evening.  Is starting around 20:00-21:00 CET possible for you?

PS: it's the setup for the final between us.  Is that ok or are we waiting for the debugged version?

Just a quick update on progress. I am hoping to be make a decision about the 'Final' set-up this week, as we need to get some matches played with this configuration despite the 'Tile Duplicating' bug.

Guys, it looks like you have forced a decision from me. Please go ahead and play your 'Final' games as JCZ currently stands. This is not a 'serious' competition for prizes, and is designed for enjoyment only, so I see no reason why we should not proceed with the minor bug that affects the bazaars. The program does not crash, and it will be the same advantage or disadvantage for both players, so I can see no harm in getting our 'Final' matches played with JCZ as it is.

Hope that you have as good a game as I had with Hounk last night.  :(y) I look forward to the match report tomorrow.

I am!  Is this a plan? :
- this evening around 20:30 UK: Halfling vs Thodekey
- tomorrow evening around 20:30 UK: Sinscerly vs Thodekey

I might be able to play the 2 games on the same evening but that might be a bit heavy...  :o

Hahaha, two games one night is doable. Send me an email, if you still want when finished. Or otherwise Tomorrow evening would be also okay.
I'll probably be available from 20.00 CET. Don't forget next week that same time will be CEST ;)

I'm not certain that you could sensibly play a 'Final' plus one other in a night, as this takes a couple of hours to play and your brain tends to get fried before the end of it, but I would be interested to be proved wrong on this!

Good luck in your matches guys and, above all, enjoy them!

 :yellow-meeple: Halfling 241
 :blue-meeple: Thodekey 163

Halfling started and got off to a good start with lots of 4 point cities as lots of the tower tiles surfaced early.  Gold bars didn't really feature significantly, but we picked them off as we went.  Halfling captured a number of Thodekey meeples as the game progressed.  The best city went to Thodekey with a cathedral finishing it off with Halfling outmanned.  Halfling grabbed the only decent farm and kept it despite two farmers being plundered via towers.  last tile German Cathedral for Halfling added unnecessary gloss to the score.
