Leagues (including expansion leagues) / Re: CCDL - Premiership Winter 2018
« on: December 08, 2018, 12:34:13 PM »
Hello all,

My daughter is 1 week old today (born Dec 1st) so it has been quite busy times recently. I should be available this coming week for games, so don't hesitate to contact me. thanks.


I re-confirm my participation and would like to pick the phantom. Thanks

Have we seen yet a situation where the winner of the game gets less league points than the loser? I can see that happening in a very tight game where for instance the loser of the game would win the roads, cities and cloisters by a very narrow margin and the winner would get the main field worth a lot. Results 2-3 for the winner of the game. Not saying its bad, just interesting and thats the purpose of this new scoring system I guess.

I like the idea and would like to give it a try. Though if a season ends up lasting 6 months, you can expect me to go back to spectator mode. For now I'm in and excited about all this.

I don't know who has leaked this pictures/Infos about this new Expansion for CCII...
but according to my information, this extension will be called "Carcassonne - Die Bader"

Source: HiG (unofficial)


At least we agree it should be something bad... :)

Alright. Fine. Here's what really happened, you nutters:


I would definitely claim the field with that one, below the monastery.

I know I said there were no right and wrong answers when I started this thread, but in this situation with Yellow being greedy and trying to keep his road for himself there really was only one thing to do. Anything else would have been wrong.

Thanks for your suggestion Jéré; here is the situation immediately after our turn:

The way I look at it we have three options:

1) Remain seated and try to look calm while the other players pick up all the tiles and meeples and quietly pack the game away. When we're on speaking terms with everyone else again we can point out that Carcassonne is a stupid game anyway, and isn't fun with more than two players.

2) We could do the opposite to 1 and go on a violent rampage, perhaps even setting fire to the table, tiles and meeples. Personally I'm not really built for violence, and there's a risk we may have to interrupt the flow of violence to borrow a lighter from someone if we go ahead with burning the table, so this isn't a favoured option for me.

3) Stand up so aggressively that our chair falls over and then storm out, never to play Carcassonne again. This works for me, although it could be embarrassing if we later remember that we were playing at home with the wife and kids and will have to return at some point.

Any other suggestions?

4) Press UNDO!

Another option is to be mad at yellow for this vicious attempt to steal the road... and rage quit by flipping the table...

But for now we could just place and claim the monastery in that sweet spot and make green happy too.

Thanks for your email Dan, I'm now "watching" the thread.

Without looking at the other proposals my choice was option 1. What I usually try to do in a 4-player game is to build a feature with another player to share the points, and really hope this other player will not try to fight for the majority (can happen with inexperienced or AI players)

Yes, an early farmer is always an option in a 4-player game but the current situation does not convince me to go down that path. Early does not necessarily mean the very first turn for me.

I would not extent somebody else's feature either unless it would allow me to place a farmer to tie/win a large field or similar situation where I could join/close a large feature.

Not related to current situation but worth mentioning: Monasteries are very valuable in 4-player games.

Guys, I think you have missed an important detail: they are made only "on demand". There is zero financial risk for cundco.

Hi dear forum Members,

As I promissed later ( I'd like to gift (just for free, no shipping costs) a new copy of Die Obstbaume - new mini expansion from Cundco -  for the first person who will  write about her/his wish in this thread.
Two restrictions: 1) person who wishs to get  the expansion should have not less than 20 posts written on the CC up to 11.05.18; 2) She/He did not get gift from me earlier (in the similar actions).
I guess I could take it. Thanks

For info. Jere is going to include these results in the ELO ratings, so there is some consolation for everyone.


Here they are!  Cheers!
