Great stuff!

That's one place higher than I finished the first time I took part in the UK championships. And I'd been playing for 2 years!
Heroically snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 2018

Thanks - really interesting write up. Our game was the most entertaining I had all day! I played Julia Bamber and encouraged her afterwards to join this community as she is a quality player. I was fortunate to beat her, even though I have been playing Carcassonne longer than she has been alive!

For all you do for Carcassonne you most definitely deserve a place at the World Championship. You were by far the best player I played all day. Despite having won it twice I feel I have a lot I can learn from you still. I'm sure it will be you year soon - now it is all two player games at the UK Championship I'm sure it will not be long.

Sorry I had to miss the semi final and final rounds - I had a UK Catan Championship to win the next day (and the Champions League final was on)!

Apologies for missing this Riker, and thanks very much for your kind words! Ours was certainly the most intense game I played on the day!

Congratulations on your victory in the Catan competition, when are the European/ world championships?

And yet also the friendliest and played in the best spirit!

Congratulations on your victory in the Catan competition, when are the European/ world championships?

European is due to be in the Autumn this year, in Amsterdam. The Worlds will be in the Autumn next year, probably in Malta.

Hi danisthirty,
I am happy to see that the UK used the 2-player games for their Carcassonne championships.
You did a great tournament day few weeks ago.

This was a fun read! I enjoyed reading of your progress game over game. I do have to ask though, unless I am blind, how is that city in that final game worth 28 points? By my count it is only worth 26 points (2 x (11 tiles + 2 coat of arms)) and I can't see any other feature that could've been played along with the final tile that would've gotten the two other points. I did consider the possibility you made a typo but then I'd have to accept that you made that typo twice. That seems unlikely.
