NK Carcassonne 2022 (Dutch Championships)
« on: February 22, 2022, 01:39:19 AM »
The NK Carcassonne 2022 will be held on the 24th of April 2022, in Veldhoven.

Entry to the tournament itself is free, but you do have to register and pay entry for the convention where it's held (Zuiderspel).
You can sign up here.

Maximum of 256 players, playing in the following format:
- 3 rounds of 3,4 or 5 player games (depending on the amount of players in the tournament)
- Depending on amount of players at a table, points are scored:
                - 1st = 5 points
                - 2nd = 3 points
                - 3rd = 2 points
                - 4th = 1 point
                - 5th = 0 points
                A draw will see points for the places added up and divided by the amount of players (so if 2 people draw for 3rd, they see (2+1)/2= 1.5 points each)
- 45 mins max playtime
                - If after 45 mins the game has not finished, the round is finished giving everyone equal amount of turns, before end scoring is initiated

After the 3 rounds, the top 16 move on to the finals
- All finals (eight/quarter/semi/full) are 1v1 knockouts
- The winner gets to represent The Netherlands in Essen for the World Championships

- Games are played as per the standard Dutch rules, with the following clarifications/changes:
                - You draw a tile at the end of your turn (you don't have to show it to your opponent(s)
                - The end of the table is the end of the field (it doesn't say, but this does imply that features are not completed by the end of the table, just left incomplete)
                - Small cities are 4 points, not 2 (don't know why they are clarifying a rule that got changed in their rulebooks as well back in 2002, but it seems for some reason that 999 is still                      confused by this)
                - Farmers are laid flat
                - Farms are counted as per majority of farmers. The player(s) with the most farmers get 3 points per completed city. This rule is different from the Dutch rules, but this was changed in other countries and used on the WC, so we use this
(I actually have commented on 999's post about this, as this is not the case, and was changed in the NL rules in 2002 just like everywhere else, so quite sloppy from them i'd say)

Other notes:
- Players are expected to know the rules of the base game
- You cannot talke to players, or otherwise help them, during the games
- You don't have to have the Dutch nationality to enter this tournament, however you then won't be able to represent NL in Essen
- Minimum age for participants is 8 year

Funnily enough, they have now updated the wording to say that the farmer scoring changed over time, and that this clarification is in line with the latest Dutch rules. Of course no idea if this is due to me commenting on their post, but i'm gonna say it is and take a small victory  ;D

So yesterday was the NK Carcassonne!

71 participants (I guess the starting tile was already laid out) took part in the event.

As mentioned, they played 3 rounds of 4 player games, after which the top 16 went on to 1v1 elimination games.

These brought the player count down to 4 players in the semi-finals.
Gert beat Yannick 93 - 80
Patrick beat John 88 - 77

In the battle for 3rd place, John managed to win over Yannick 100 - 93

During the final game, Gert managed to win, 103 - 83, and he is the new Dutch champion of Carcassonne, and will be representing the Netherlands during the WC in Essen

A more detailed recap of the day can be found here (in Dutch)
