Catars mine!  :)

I would like to buy your besiegers. That is the 6-tile version right?

Typical, neither the Cathars nor the Besiegers remains more than a blink on sale ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Prize left unclaimed, since I won the World Cup by myself 8) Prize would be some rare expansion, which a winner doesn't have :D

So, will it be saved for the next tournament? Or maybe it will be given away?  :o

This smells like conspiracy! >:D >:D >:D

Oh boi here we go!

It was the 12th of May my last game of Carcassonne, specifically in the National Qualifying Tournament that day, in the Shivano store, in my hometown Santiago, in Chile (a bit obvious I would say  ::) ).

I arrived very early and anxious, having already tried about four times before reaching this point (not to mention the past years), and although I felt very nervous, I trusted myself and all the experience gained playing in previous tournaments and my practice.

People began to arrive, and when it was time to start, there were about 12 people. It was a small place, but we were able to accommodate ourselves perfectly. There were several familiar faces from previous tournaments, against which I won and lost equally.

We started, and my first game was with a player with whom I had competed a last date to take me the third place (the prize was an Epic, as a consolation prize), which after an intense duel, I won by wide difference, about 50 points . Some difficult farms marked the end of that game.

My second match was lost against a novice but very skilled player! He wbecause of blockades of meeples in a giant city, which did not reach completion, losing both a couple of followers on the road, but he took the most appetizing piece.

For the amount of people, everything would decide now. I had to win yes or yes if I wanted to go to Top 4. This game was strange, and very funny, I must admit. I played against someone very novice, so new, that with a single movement, I took a city of 6 points, and I blocked 3 monks with a single movement. Despite feeling a bit bad about myself, he did not take any notice and kept playing, until he finally realized his mistake, and took it with a lot of laughter. The game ended quickly, having won by more than 70 points, and still having time for the others to finish, play a friendly rematch, which I lost and several of our peasants were locked in closed roads  >:D

Thanks to the large number of points I won, by tiebreak, I could enter the Top 4, remaining in third place. If he won, he goes to the Top 2, which would automatically qualify me for the national tournament. And my decisive match was with the player with whom I lost the second round  :'(

Wow, what a game! Ignoring my strategy of starting with the farms as soon as possible, I let my opponent take them before me, so I concentrated on acquiring small and medium-sized cities. He, on the other hand, had a lot of luck with the cloisters, and then, I went back to the farms. Being that my opponent was tempted to spend all his meeples, I took advantage of taking everything I could, as I had during most of the game 3 meeples in my reserve  8) :blue-meeple:

We went head to head, looking like he would take the victory, when in the penultimate piece, I managed to make a city of 18 points, which solitarily began to form far from their domain ;) This was key, because I precisely won by 18 points, and of a draw, he would have won because of the difference of points won previously.

And I won. I did it. Alfin, after several years, I was able to acquire a sufficiently advanced level of play to get to play competitively. After that, with the winner of the other table, we desisted in playing, opting to share the prizes, we were already tired and exhausted from all this. He took an Exit and a Sushi Go, I a Checkpoint Charlie and a Kodama. The third and fourth, an Epic and a Star Realms.

Well, thats it! Thank you Dan for this gift to the community. I would like to claim for the frff, the cloister with road from the old art, if it is not too much to ask  ;D

PD: I played with the blue color. It is my favorite color and personal cabal  :blue-meeple: :blue-meeple: :blue-meeple:
PD 2: Whoops! The cloister was already taked :( doesn't matter, I claim the old-art cfrr tile left (never the frfr, NEVER)

Thank you, Sinscerly!

Sincerely, me.

Wow, that really sounds complicated. Did you take pictures of said envelope before opening it? (if it was open). I guess the first option would be to make a complaint with Paypal, right?
