Blimey, completely forgot about this, thanks for the reminder! Yes tonight is good, anytime after 7:30pm (GMT), although I can't host. Let me know what time is convenient for you. Cheers

Super!  7:30 pm (GMT) is fine, 8:00 PM would be perfect.
I can't host either (i don't know how it works) so
- we find somebody else to host
- OR we take the risk of playing online (I had to replay 1 game in this league thus far)

Great stuff, 8pm it is then (I'll be on Slack then). Happy to give the online server a go (and will save regularly just in case someone can get it reloaded should it fail).

Hi Rich,

Any chance of a later game today?
Maybe around 22h00.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me, Shall be my brother;

Hi CL. 22:00 (GMT) should be just fine. Thanks for message, was intending to get in touch after work, but you beat me to it. It'll be good to play these last remaining games tonight and discover my fate in the league. Catch you later

Thanks for the msg Dan, it'll probably be safer if we dial in and use your laptop. Thanks mate.

Rich the Fish 2 - 3 Thodekey

Because only the winner of this league could get promoted, there were only 2 ways left for me to win this league:
- win my last game vs Rich the Fish with 3,5 or more
- win my last game vs Rich the Fish with 3-2 and have a huuuuuuuuuuge points difference (which was in fact impossible because we both had chosen a small expansion)

It was pretty clear during the game road and farmer points would be mine.  It was also clear that Rich did much better in scoring cities then I did.  So my fate depended on cloisters and victory on points.  The points, I won thanks to my early farmer in the slowly expanding farming field and thanks to my -for once- 2 extra gold bars.

So, a tie in the cloisters was enough...was it?
Well, Lady Luck vomited again in my face: with 10 cloisters in the game and 8 already played, we were both exactly even in cloister points and we both drew one of the remaining cloister tiles some 10 tiles before the end.  Rich saw the potential, placed it better then me and succeeded in surrounding it better with the last tiles then I did...result: 1 point too short to tie the cloisters and win this league.  The very same 1 cloister point too short in my game against...Rosco! 

To conclude:
- That's it! No religion for me anymore! :-s
- Congrats to Rosco for winning this league unless Chooselife succeeds an stunning 5-0 victory in his remaining game vs Rich the Fish!
- Many thanks to Dan's laptop for hosting this game
- A thumbs up for Rich for making it damn difficult for me  :). No really, it was a fun game
- And last but not least: thank you Steve for this fantastic initiative.  Already looking forward to the next one.

Rich_The_Fish v Chooselife
 :red-meeple: 4 v  :yellow-meeple: 1

Blimey, what a tense and rather cautious game that was - the tower is so brutal!
This game was so finely balanced and could so easily have gone either way. In the end, there were a couple of critical tiles which really dictated the scoring...
The main city (worth 30 points) was vacant for about 12 tiles after CL captured my meeple - had he drawn the CFFF after this and finished the city then it would have been a totally different game.
In fact, right up until the last few tiles I thought it'd lost 2-3, but struck lucky with the draw and got a tower piece (RFRC) which allowed the capture of the main yellow farmer. This gave me enough farm and overall points to steal the win.
Thanks for the very challenging game Chooselife.

I believe this brings the Championship league to a close - thanks so much to all of you for the games, there have been several expansions I've never used before so really pleased to have learnt them.

Congratulations to all players in this league for having completed all their matches in the time allocated!!!

Well done to Rosco as Champion and Thodekey as a very close runner-up.

Promotions and relegations will be sorted out once other leagues are completed.
