Only 1 corner would have been enough :-)

Difference of insight then, but you were as amazed as me ingame ;) Even in DM you said so :)

It's currently halftime in my battle with MrNumbers. The second game should take place within one or two days I assume.

Thanks for the update. Sounds like you must be getting through a lot of oranges.

MrNumbers vs. Leven, game 2.
102:78

Tiles loved me that evening, I had a lot of luck, and it was stronger than Leven's excellent gameplay :D

Ouch, I just found out that our first game's results also not published!
MrNumbers vs. Leven
95:93
That game was much closer, throughout the game we were even, point in point. Only with last tile I was able to snatch a victory.

I lost both of my games tonight!  :(

Not sure how it happened, but it did. Hopefully I get better tiles in the next game.

Well played Sinscerly and best of luck with the rest of your games.

With Round 4 complete, I'm happy to be able to show you the slightly newish league table which now looks all posh with country flags and everything!



I'm hoping that I've got this right for everyone (nationalities), but please tell me if anything's wrong and I'll fix it. I've also added a sort of "claim to fame" column on the right for people I know who have taken part in their national championships, or even gone on to participate in the world championships. Please let me know if you'd like anything added here :)

Round 5 is now live! You can access the thread for it, including fixture list, by following this link.

Played 2 awesome matches last night with Steve.

The first one was quite hectic... And I thought I would lose. Somehow I managed to squize out one more point than he did. Just because I managed to set some meeples free in the last rounds so I could manage to finish some cities and compete on the fields.

The second round I tried building a city and got blocked, so I saw my changes at the end with Steves his big city to block it. I managed to get quite some cloister points, steve didnt used the cloisters (except one), but it was I think more the bottleneck of that city you lost. Never go too big. Have been stuck in cities to much????

Awesome result! Since most national champions will go on to take part in the world championships, I didn't know whether people would prefer "{wherever} Champion {whenever}" or "xth place, world championships {whenever}". I guess maybe it depends on their finishing position at the world championships, but it's a personal choice. I'll update yours anyway. :) :(y)

I was finalist (2nd) in 2017. Still, my 3rd position from 2018 was more important because that qualified me to the world championships.
