Hi Bekse,
Sorry, it seems I haven't received your PM somehow.
I'm free this evening after 9 pm. Would that be suitable for you?
Tomorrow seems also OK.

A 1-1 draw between myself and TheSteveAllen.  Two cracking games.

dronedrone and I played our games this evening:

Game 1





Most of this game was played with just 1 or 2 meeples each as we both invested heavily into a city which became impossible to complete when I killed it off in order to trap another of dronedrone's meeples on an adjacent road. I also managed to prevent what had seemed like a relatively safe attempt for dronedrone to get a second farmer onto the main farm as I drew both of the fffr tiles and used them elsewhere for my own benefit.

I was concerned at points that this game was slipping away from me, especially when dronedrone claimed what would have been a game-changing city if it had been completed. A fortunately-times cccr tile helped me to prevent him from doing this, and I felt I could rest a little when I went on to complete a tidy 12-point city and get a second farmer of my own onto the main farm. dronedrone seemed pretty dangerous with his last meeple though, and kept it back until such point that he could make a strong attempt to tie the farm with me. But fortunately (for me) I was able to keep it off and the final scores swung in my favour despite struggling to get any worthwhile points from either my knight or my monk on the left side of the landscape.

Game 2





This game was quite a nail-biter! After being gently eased into the game with lots of road tiles for both of us, the game got going once we'd both started fighting for the farm, which was two separate farms until I joined them together with a fffr cloister to establish a majority of two farmers of mine against one of dronedrone's. dronedrone wouldn't stay behind though, and despite my best efforts to trap him and prevent him adding more farmers he had soon tied me with two, and then three farmers each...

As the number of tiles left in the bag reached single figures I was struggling to find the ffxx tile I required to join my fourth farmer to the main farm. I felt safe though, until dronedrone unexpectedly got one of his meeples back! I say unexpectedly, but perhaps not undeservedly as he'd been extending a long road he had going every time he drew a road tile, so it became quite valuable over the course of the game thanks to the number of road tiles he drew! Anyway, extending the farm in this way gave me another opportunity to get a fourth farmer down so I took a risk with my last meeple rather than putting it on the incomplete city in the bottom-right corner where I'd been dumping city tiles with the intention of claiming the points at some point before the end of the game. Fortunately dronedrone wasn't able to claim this either, but took 3 points from a farmer instead. As luck would have it, the final tile of the game (a crfr) was useful to me to win the main farm outright and rob dronedrone of 33 points in the process. Otherwise, the scores could have been very different!

Overall scores: 2 - 0 to me, and +/- 66PD for myself and dronedrone respectively.

Thanks for the games dronedrone, and good luck with the rest of the competition! :(y)

The match between Bekse and me brought the first tied game in this competition. :P
We both had collected 7 points so far in the league but I was behind because of PD, so my victory in the other game means that now we switch positions.
Here are the results:

:yellow-meeple: Bekse vs :violet-meeple: Leven 78:88

:violet-meeple: Leven vs :yellow-meeple: Bekse 103:103
