MrNumbers and I played both games today. Yay for the ice-breakers!

Now the game..
Early in the game I thought it was OK to trap a meeple of MrNumbers' so that he would have few meeples to steal points from me. That didn't work out so well.
MrNumbers got more points than I, so I guess I failed.

Thank you, MrNumbers, for the games! Good luck to you in the following games.

First games have been played.
Game 1: MrNumbers as escaper - 113.
Game 2: ny1050220 as escaper - 82.

Completely different style of playing, especially playing as trapper. You should always remember that your points are irrelevant, but it is so tempting to place a meeple on already-8-points cloister! ;D BTW, ny1050220 joined to 12-points farm only with his last tile!
Playing as escaper you don't avoid joining attempts from your opponent - you join by yourself :)
Thanks for the good games, NY, and good luck in future games!

Rosco and I planned to play in person while I was up in the Lake District last week but my "cram as many family activities into a week as is humanly possible" holiday with my extended family didn't allow a lot of time for visiting nearby pals. Sorry Rosco :(

Hopefully we can play our games this week?

Hello everyone,

I'm very sorry but due to personal/familial reasons and with some regret, i will be obliged to retire from this competition. Sorry for the inconvenience to the other participants.
I hope to join you folks again later in another competition...

Greetings,
thodekey
