Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

My bad; we should post the game titles with the links and passwords.

Another hint for reducing schizophrenia:

Have your "main" brass account "watch" all of the games your GCL account is in; that way you only need to look at one page to know when it's your turn.

I had created 3 gaemes, one of which finished. I'm not sure what became of the other two, but I was signed up. I don't have the energy/time right now to chase this down, but still want to participate. If someone else can salvage the system, great.

Apologies for unintentional blooper in last round. Jimmy should have 161 not 154 as somehow i completely missed his port which could flip my cotton. Thinnk id finish on 142 rather than 132 but that is probably still last but jimmys 154/161 is touch and go with aliza on 150 and her last 2 cards in hand
Sorry guys


And as it turned out it didn't affect the final standings -- I had a choice of overbuilding my own coal and building 2 rails for second place or overbuilding Ben's coal with a double-build for second place. (However, if you had shipped cotton instead of overbuilding your own iron, I would have had an iron overbuild that could have won the game. So perhaps you stressed over your mistake giving me the win when in reality it denied it ;-) )

A new all-GCL game is posted here:
http://brass.orderofthehammer.com/lobby.php?GameID=32594

Game name: All GCL 8
Passwod: plaid

All welcome!

And I love this 'all GCL' idea. Thanks Aliza & Lee. It's already changing my 'groupthink' to play different folks. My first game was a dramatic & wonderful affair. I love that there's this pool of people to play the game 'to depth,' to reference Martin's recent blog, yet to have a personal connection to the players rather than the silent & anonymous site-at-large.

These were in the same game! And if I'd just got my last distant market flip, I would have ended with a spectactular losing score of 170

I think you missed this game btw: http://brass.orderofthehammer.com/board.php?GameID=32104

There were two "All GCL 3" games...

- someone hitting distant market early perhaps with the crap cotton mills
- additionally, everyone else resisting the temptation to open up their ports to him (since while it helps you, it seems Toms consistently getting the best out of this game after game), of course theres usually one who dives in with their level 3 and 4 ports trying to ride his coattails, but so far it aint working
- avoiding refilling iron so much to at least force him to keep paying over the odds for the iron

Also, not building the canals that allow the cotton-rusher to drop mills in without building links themself.

Sure - we can skype on the side. I've done it before with Phoenixes and it was fun. It took more than an hour tho, basically because every once in a while someone would stop and think. Lee, is thinking a Swedish concept too?


If we do this, I'd like to learn some Swedish cuss words. I mean really nasty stuff, not how to call someone a 'poop.' Some peripheral verbs, like 'spank,' would be nice too. Conjugations aren't entirely necessary, just the raw stuff.

It's unlikely this weekend as it's a holiday over here and alot of folks will be traveling for family get togethers. Although, thinking about it, going to a family event with a bunch of Swedish insults might be handy. They'll think I'm complimenting the pie and I'll finally be telling my brother-in-law what I really think of him.

Ah! Cuss words! Hands across the world in the fraternity of gamers!
