Bekse asked me to write the games up as he was 'otherwise engaged' oh the ignominy of it all - not only did I lose both games but I have to talk about it, in front of you all!

Bekse romped away in Game 1 - stealing my city that I had worked so hard on and then finishing a second.   He also managed to join me on an 11 point road and beat me to the 15 point farm, recycling his meeples and even having one left at the end.

Game 2 a more even battle, reminded me of the old adage "When one door closes...another one slams in your face!"

A closer game full of if's, but's, then's and maybe's for me.   I was sweating on a CCC? tile to complete my city over on the right and needed the RRRR to complete my road AND cloister, recovering two meeples to be put to good use. But...Who pulled BOTH of them? No prizes for guessing who (Hint: it wasn't me)

Admitting that you had a problem is the first step to overcoming it. Don't back away from it dronedrone, we're here to support you, not to judge you.

That aside, well done to both of you for getting your games played so quickly! :) :(y)

It were great games indeed!
First game i could finish 2 big cities and overall have more meeples during the game so not much trouble there. Second game was close, i got some crucial tiles and claimed the victory.

Thanks for the games!

Riker and I played our round 8 match this evening. The results:

:green-meeple: Riker vs :violet-meeple: Leven 81:86

:violet-meeple: Leven vs :green-meeple: Riker 85:85
(My second consecutive match with a tied game. :o )

Two extremely close games, could have gone either way. My overall victory was supported by some lucky tile draws on my side plus a mistake by Riker with his last tile in the second game. Can you find a better placement for that tile?

Not an obvious choice at all, especially given the pressure of what looks like it was a very tight game! However, robbing your opponent of 3 points is as useful as generating 3 points for yourself (assuming this is the placement you were talking about and I'm not missing something?)...

Yes, it is. But even without losing those 3 farm-points, I would have lost the game if Riker had deployed his last follower to the long road (worth 8 points).

I will not be available to play much in August. I suggest the tournament carries on without me in the meantime and hopefully I will soon catch up in September.

I'm here and waiting for round 9.
It seems the tournament has an unannounced summer  break. Maybe Dan knows what happened.
