Thanks to everyone who has already played their games! I've put together a crude league table based on the results that we already have, but I'm looking forward to completing it with the results of the two remaining matches:

Riker and TheSteveAllen will be playing this evening, but I haven't heard any news of the Halfling/ MrNumbers match. Any update on this guys?

I was online later than expected this evening and so I think I've missed TheSteveAllen. I'm sure we'll rearrange soon though.

I can make it this evening. Just after 8 should be fine.

Two very close matches tonight after both players having problems with closing their respective properties in real life!

These games were all very much down to the run of the cloisters and we shared the luck and the points.

Thanks for the games Riker. Best of luck with your other matches in this league.

Game 1 Riker  :green-meeple: 110 v TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 91

Game 2 Riker  :green-meeple: 76 v TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 88

TheSteveAllen and I played this evening. A most unfriendly game played in good spirits, as Carcassonne should be. Thanks to Steve for his patience on missing him last night and with me still getting to grips with the interface.

Riker 110 TheSteveAllen 91
TheSteveAllen 88 Riker 76

The tile draw was in my favour in game 1, which saw me getting a lot of cloisters. While final scoring was very even I had gained enough in game lead to take the win.

In game 2 Steve made some clever endgame play, using his tile knowledge effectively to take a 21 point field. The tile draw had turned in Steve's favour this time - at one point I drew 7 plain roads in a row.

Thanks guys for getting your match played guys. I've updated the scores, and all being well with the much-anticipated clash between Halfling and the numbers man, we should be ready to move on to Round 2 by tomorrow...

A most unfriendly game played in good spirits, as Carcassonne should be.

The final games of the round were played in a very friendly and most excellent spirit.

MrNumbers started game 1

I got a huge help in game 2 where I was trying to glom in a second farmer.  All too easily done.

MrNumbers 118 vs   98 Halfling
Halfling       132 vs 114 MrNumbers

Well done and thanks to everyone for getting your matches played so quickly! I hope everyone has enjoyed their first couple of games, and that you're all looking forward to the rest of the competition!

Before we move on to Round 2 however, here's a quick recap of the scores from Round 1:



Obviously it's far too early in the competition to attempt to draw any meaningful conclusions from this yet, but it's good to see that we all appear to be of a similar standard which is going to make for some very interesting games further down the line!

Round 2 is now live! You can access the thread for it, including fixture list, by following this link.
