« on: June 03, 2019, 11:05:44 AM »
Players and Chosen Expansions

Chooselife - The Tower
Danisthirty - The Fliers
JackFace - Traders & Builders
Jma03 - Inns & Cathedrals

Fixtures

Each player is to play a single two-person game of Carcassonne using JCloisterZone against each of the other players in the division. The starting date will be today Monday 3rd June 2019 and all games must be played and the results posted on this thread before midnight GMT on Friday 27th September 2019. The starting player in each case will be chosen at random.

The tile set for each game will consist of the base game and each of the competitors' chosen expansions, i.e. two expansions are to be used in every match.

The Division

As a result of each match, each player will be awarded league points according to the following rules:-

Most game points for roads – 1 point
Most game points for cities – 1 point
Most game points for cloisters – 1 point
Most game points for farms – 1 point
Most game points overall (formerly referred to as 'a win') – 1 point
Tying any of the above with opponent – 0.5 points

This means that all matches have 5 points available to be distributed to the two players.

A league table with points gained from matches played will be maintained and regularly posted to this thread by the tournament organiser.

The top ranked two players after all matches have been played will be declared 'Champion' and 'Runner-up' respectively. The lowest ranked two players will be eligible for relegation.

In addition to the Champion and Runner-up, the following will be awarded:-

The Brave Brigand – the player with the most league points for roads
The Knoble Knight – the player with the most league points for cities
The Crafty Cleric – the player with the most league points for cloisters
The Fruitful Farmer – the player with the most league points for farms
The Triumphant Tiler – the player with the most league points for winning games

After each match, it is the winner's responsibility to ensure that the result is posted to this thread clearly showing the points awarded separately for Roads, Cloisters, Cities and Farms.

danisthirty (3.5: roads, cities, cloisters, joint farms) - thodekey (1.5: join farms, game)





I think I was supposed to report our game to the forums, but I was leaving it to thodekey as he won on points, and I guess he was leaving it to me as I won on The Steve Allen points. Sorry for the delay in any case. Anyway, hello. Thodekey and I played our game last Thursday and it was a belter of a whopper...

I felt completely outplayed in this game so was surprised to see that thodekey only won by one point, and even more surprised to see that I took more league points than he did. It was a bit frustrating in places as I seem to remember spending a surprising amount of time with no meeples, waiting for a common tile to come along. But fortunately I got it in time to win some points and free up a meeple which I used to fight back for the farm which ended up being tied. However, thodekey admitted to me after the game that he'd made a bit of a mistake in this respect and committed his last meeple to it thinking he needed to join it on to tie the farm rather than winning it outright. I was able to block him here, but was certainly on the edge of my seat for the last half a dozen or so tiles!

I also felt thodekey was unlucky not to close his city to the east which would certainly have made a big difference to the scores if only for the extra gold it would have won him as much as anything else. I did not have a lot of influence over where the gold ended up as I only drew one of the Goldminers tiles, but still managed to grab a few bars if only to stop thodekey from getting them as much as anything else! Fliers were useless. Again, I only drew one of them, but there was no flying whatsoever from either of us so it felt like quite a traditional/ basic game in this sense.

Thanks for the game thodekey, and good luck with the rest of the competition!

Good report after a very enjoyable game.  For once, gold was on my side. 
I was indeed assuming you would post the outcome as you won (yes, you did!) and your reports ar far better than my reports are.

I am but we already played, did we?

Just to say: if 2 other players would be available, know that I'm available to play as well.  But it goes without saying, Dan has priority...he asked first.

Anyone up for a game this Thursday at around 8:30pm UK time?
