Cartographers / Re: Strategy question single squares

I never chose monster.  I had naively assumed that choosing the single square monster option allowed you to play it on your opponent's map, but I guess I was wrong!

I think this game is solid, and strictly superior to Circle the Wagons (sorry to fans of the latter!).

That said, I think the food costs are a little counter to getting people to play the game, so long as people's food is set at a base of 20.  If you lose one game against a human, you can't play a rematch!

I would suggest either making the game cost 10 food (allowing 2 normal games) and training mode 6 food (allowing 3 training games) or, more ambitiously, raising the general food total to 22 (so still allowing 2 normal games or 3 training games).

World, castle, market... / Customize the castle?

While I am temporarily famous I thought I would put in a plug for installing the ability to customize the castle with victory points.  8)

Thanks for your support all. Jeff, to answer your question no I cannot even reply to a personal chat window from you but I appreciate that you reached out to Jimmy.  I guess I will just have to wait until the ban either is lifted by Jimmy (when he gets back from a well-deserved vacation) or simply runs out (whenever the latter is).  So if you are playing games with me and I do not communicate with you, at least you know why.   :)

It would have been nice to get a warning first. It would also be nice to know when the chat ban will be lifted.  And I was not aware that what I did was against the rules, since what I did (posting six times to move a swear word of another poster up the feed) was specifically rewarded by admins with gold when other people did it.

All I did was "bump" up a troll poster by posting "." 6 times on that group chat, so that others could not immediately see their swear words in the chat.  This is a practice that has been done before by others and got rewarded by Admins. 

Is there a mistake or have the rules changed?

Level X / Etiquette?

Is there some sort of unwritten rule that one should not use the “hoard all the 10s or 9s” tactic?  I have branched out from Lost Cities and May be committing some faux pas by using that tactic (I was asked to “play fair”).

Happy Meeple community / More rooms at the inn?

With all of the new players maybe we need more little windows on the inn page so that more people can open games at the inn?

World, castle, market... / Re: buildings : repairing?
« on: 10/03/20, 07:15am »
Yeah while I have enough money to buy some buildings and roads, and could plant wheat, I prefer not to for aesthetic reasons as I hate to see the "rotting/disrepair" versions.

I was just curious if anyone remembers the lowest score they had in Lost Cities where they still won.  Have they ever won with a negative score or 0?

Similarly, what is the highest score you can remember where you still lost?

I suppose weird ties could be noteworthy too.  Theoretically a game could tie at 0/0 if both sides discard everything.  ;)

Clearly this was posted before you saw mine.   ;D

Tips, polls, updates / Re: Screenshots - your opinion

It would be cool to record that *one* time you got all 12 cards of a colour in Lost Cities.

I mean, I won't play with Britany B. again because I don't particularly like being insulted and sworn at while playing games, but is there something else I should be doing, like using a report function on the dialogue box?  If so, how does that work?

Is there anything permanent that one can buy with gold or wood or stone or brick?
