Jéré, do you know what the format is? Two players, four players...?

I just know it's only the base game. I'd prefer duels but I wonder how they would squeeze so many games in only 2 hours... (It's from 10:00 to 12:00 in the morning)

Hi! I'm the organizer of the 2015 Norwegian Carcassonne Championship, which will be held at Arcon games festival in Oslo on Saturday June 20th. The format will be twoplayer, 6 rounds Swiss system, followed by semifinals, final and 3rd place match. Only the base set will be used. The winner will qualify for the World Championship at Spiel 2015 in Essen, but unfortunately will have to pay all expences him/her self. More information can be found on our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/406088149544410/ (sorry, Norwegian only). All players are welcome to participate, but only Norwegian citizens/residents may qualify for the semifinals. I will also organize the Norwegian Stone Age Championship on Sunday June 21st, for those interested in that game.

I could not believe this! I received a confirmation of my registration from the French organisers. In the email they included a link to the rules "you should know in order to participate" as they say.... But these rules are so old (2 pts for small cities also very old way of scoring farmers!).  I asked them if the link (http://jeuxstrategie.free.fr/Carcassonne_complet.php) was sent by mistake and indeed, it appears that they couldn't find more recent rules online.  I looked myself and couldn't find either so I am bringing my own paper rulebook to work and scan it there, and then will send to Ludinord organisers.

There are 14 (of 52) tickets currently available to the UK championships. And since they’re only £6 each I’m considering purchasing them all! At least this way, I stand a chance of getting into the top 10 again provided I get drawn to play against myself enough times...  :))

Today I was at the National championship group stage round. We were 38 participants, divided onto two groups. I was in group A, as well as the winner of both previous championships. I won 4 games from 6, both games lost to the same person (woman), who told about herself that she don't know how to play and she plays just randomly. I came 4th in my group and took last ticket to QF, which will take place on May, 10.
Today I haven't met with previous champion in qualification games, but we played 4 friendly games: the result is 2-2. So I still have a chance to beat him in finals! :D

Congratulations on reaching the next round of the competition MrNumbers!

Regarding the woman who said she didn’t know how to play and just played randomly (but beat you twice) I met a similar person at the UK championships last year. I didn’t actually play him in the end as he had come to the wrong table, but the four of us were chatting before he got moved to the correct table and he said he’d hardly ever played Carcassonne yet ended up coming 2nd overall.

I don’t know whether some people prefer to be modest about their playing skill, or maybe they’re being honest but are just very lucky (unlikely), or maybe they just pretend to be less experienced than they are because they think it gives them a psychological advantage. This is an area I am very inexperienced in so I’m going to take everything that anyone tells me about themselves with a grain of salt and don’t intend to make any allowances for anyone who declares themselves to be a “beginner”.

Maybe you should try a bit of psychological mind games yourself Dan. "No, I hardly ever play Carcassonne. I don't organize online competitions or anything like that ... (Awkward laugh). I'd never buy 300 meeples of myself ... would you?"

Carcassonne? What’s that? I thought this was Ticket to Ride? Oh well, I’m sure it can’t be that complicated. I’ll just see if I can pick the rules up as I go along...”
