The Catan first qualifier report from Colin :

First Catan Qualifiers had a turnout of 8 Catan Enthusiasts! 3 rounds were played, with random maps and players enjoyed themselves. Initial teething problems was that it kicked off slightly late and a small rule oversight (rolling 7 and discarding round up instead of down). A very big thank you for those who came down to support the event!

Round 1 Results

Table 1
Neo Aik Kee 5pts
Marcus Tong 10pts
Hubert Wee 6pts
David Lum 4pts

Table 2
Henry Quek 5pts
Sng Tze Chow 10pts
Pwee Keng Ho 6pts
Deitrich Mohan 2pts

Round 2 Results

Table 1
Marcus Tong 10pts (20pts)
Hubert Wee 7pts (13pts)
Deitrich Mohan 5pts (7pts)
Henry Quek 7pts (12pts)

Table 2
Sng Tze Chow 8pts (18pts)
Pwee Keng Ho 11pts (17pts)
David Lum 6pts (10pts)
Neo Aik Kee 9pts (14 pts)

Round 3 Results

Table 1
Hubert Wee 8pts (21pts)
David Lum 10pts (20pts)
Henry Quek 8pts (20pts)
Neo Aik Kee 5pts (19pts)

Table 2
Pwee Keng Ho 11pts (28pts)
Deitrich Mohan 7pts (14pts)
Marcus Tong 8pts (28pts)
Sng Tze Chow 9pts (27pts)

The final round was very exciting, as the leading players competed with each other and the results was a very close finish. This was despite a fully random system in player placement, done at the beginning of the competition.

In the end, the victory percentage method was brought in and Marcus Tong declared the winner! Keng Ho's slow start but fantastic finishing got him 2nd, and they both walk away with Settler's vouchers ($50 n $10).

My comments on the event was that for a qualifier, the numbers was good, aswe could fill 2 tables evenly. Players were also great, especially during rounds 2 and 3, where they rocked the cafe with the bellows of laughter. Also the game drew the interest of customers who played the demo game events.

The next qualifier will be held on the 16th April, and it will be at Holland V. It will be a Sunday, the THIRD sunday of the month... which of course is the board game meetup weekend!

Entrance to the tournament is inclusive of entrance into the meetup for Meetup members. So its just an additional $5 (total $10) and you get to enjoy the best of both worlds!

The dust has settled, and the FIRST Singapore Catan Champion has emerged! Out of the mouth of the Merlion strides our hope of clinching the World Catan Championship! And it is none other than......

RICKY PURNOMO!!!

Ricky squeezed into the finals by a whisker's breath, after defeating heavyweights PWEE KENG HO and SIU HEAN to lift up the trophy that creates history in Singapore, as this is the FIRST designer game that is played on a national level!

Coming in a commendable second is MARCUS TONG, who saw victory slipped away in the dying minutes of a close game!

Again, we thank those who have supported us strongly, and hope that they enjoyed the game!

Actual report will be up as soon as we find time to do it...

Cheers!
