What happens for the 'opening'? Is it worth coming for the spectacle? I won't be competing against you so can honestly wish you 'all the best'. ;-)

Went along for the Agricola tournament and plenty of LoBsters involved amongst the 14 players such as Adrian, Andrew D, Charlotte, Dan H, Dan V, Krystle, Tom W (2 time reigning champion) but sadly no Bijan. There were 3 rounds in total with the final round being seeded following results from the first 2 rounds. Therefore, the 'final' table featured Andrew, Tom, myself and Dan H. It was a tough game with some awful Occs and the game clock proving to be more distracting than being useful but the final reckoning saw myself edge out Tom for the win. However, medals were rewarded based on pts (4-2-1-0) over the 3 rounds and I took the Gold medal with 3 wins. Krystle did to Dan what Dan did to me last year, taking the silver medal by virtue of winning the second table and Dan settled for bronze after winning his first 2 games. Tom just missing out on the medals this year. Any other LoBsters winning medals they care to share?

I managed joint 3rd at Terra Mystica on the Tuesday. Sadly no medal though, as the tie-break rules say that people from the top table in the final round (not me!) get the medals. More than happy with joint 3rd, though - especially as I beat the mighty Tung in Game 2 and the equally mighty Bijan in Game 3! Tung deservedly took the gold medal for Terra on the day. Shame I couldn't make the Agricola this year but I was seeing my family over the bank holiday weekend. Sounds like LoB collectively "owned" it this year anyway!
