When you lose, do not look at what you lost, but what's left to win ..

¡¡¡Suerte!!!

Go there to have fun, the rest will come by itself. That's my advice.

I'll wait for the report. :)

It was a pleasant experience.
the downside was that my phone was broken.

First I have to say , that surprised me the organization and the site where the tournament was played  (for good)
There were many participants ( 129 ) because the nationally ranked could bring companions to play the tournament. (in my opinion that gave the tournament a little inequality when playing games ) .but I loved it because I saw that it would be very competitive.


In the morning, 3 games of 4 players played .
Swiss system and the top 16 ranked passed to the final round.

*In my first game I got the 2nd position only one point of 1 rated .
I made a good start always keeping your head , with a considerable margin of points to win .
but inexplicably a player made ​​two moves final that never understand , sending me to the second position (
in fact stay 4 ranked by these movements).
*My second game was not so good , I got a 3.
It was a very aggressive game where little had to do.
*
My third game i was the winner.
It was a very interesting game because one of the players needed to win to qualify for the final .
He tried very well, but I use 6 of 7 meeples to take the main estate (24 points ).

I could not do capture the last two games because my phone no longer worked well.


Left 34 of 129 players , so it does not qualify me for the final round.
Even so happy I made ​​games , the good atmosphere of the tournament and gifts expansions carcassonne in the lotery.

I hope to repeat this experience next year.

Haha, that is so spanish. Bring your friends along! It going to be super crowded but whatever!  :(y):D

Argh! I hate when a player does random moves in a multiplayer game... It happened to me also during the Dutch Championship: That person probably realised that it was impossible to win so why not try to drag someone to the bottom too..  >:(


There is something I did not understand. I thought you had win a regional qualifier (???) Why did you have to go through another 4-player game stage? Was the regional qualifier too small (too few participants) to grant you a spot in the National final (where you would play only 1vs1 matches)?
