Finally they shake off the eternal 2nd name and take their place in the winners circle.

Congrats for Spain, especially for Agus (was very patient ;) ). Good Carambor was stopped and i dont care because of Brian's mistake ;)

Yes I am only human. And technically it didn't get stopped, I just failed a die roll. It still managed to double exhaust and give the opponent only 1 turn. I just failed my faction dice roll.

I remember telling somebody after my final game with Marcos, in which I lost by 2 MPs, that the fact that I was losing at the finals would probably mean that my teammates would win (since in the other three finals I won and they lost) I am very happy I was right about that :D And also happy Carambor didn't win Nations Cup ;-)

If you are playing Carambor I don't think I want to play against you ;-) Otherwise, yes, of course!

Agus told me he already sent you his adress, and that you would send his package and mine to that direction; that's fine for me.

Once I hear from Enrique I'll send em out. And Manuel only if you played Hero, but I know you played FW so no it's not Carambor. Any pro should know you only play Carambor vs hero, duh :P

As expected team France finished last. :)
But it doesn't matter because we still had fun while playing. 8)
At least we are not too ridiculous because we scored some points. :wink:

I hope some new nations, which team doesn't feel very competitive like us, will no more be shy and show up next year !
Come on, this will be a hard battle for last place ! [-me_ccc-]

See you next year !

Small report of tournament.
I played with "Kingly Wedding" deck (see http://www.councilofelrond.org/forum/vi ... =54&t=1710).

First round was against Wolfgang (thorondor) for Austria.
We had exactly the same resource deck !
We kept thus influencing each other resource, and game was very slow (5 hours !)
Game was very tight save for end when I took a serious advantage and called council (25-17).
Victory was very close but Wolfgang made a perfect last turn, particularly by influencing my Knights of Dol Amroth.
I finally lost 21-25.

Second round was against Martin (peregrin) for Germany who played Balrog.
Victory was already undoubtly for Martin on second turn !
First turn : Arwen killed, Imrahil and Damrod wounded, Saruman and Aragorn tapped.
Second turn : Imrahil and Damrod go to Minas Tirith for healing (with Houses of Healing)
Meanwhile, Saruman and Aragorn, having each the Cram of wounded fellows, fight auto-attack at Glittering Caves (2@10 with Unabated in Malice).
Saruman rolled 3 ... and Aragorn too !!! "Fortunately" they are only wounded, and avoid after CvCC thanks to Dark Quarrels.
Thrid turn : Ioreth enters play in Minas Tirith, makes Marvels Told and for cc rolled 2 !
Thus nobody in Minas Tirith and Houses of Healing discarded ...
Meanwhile, Saruman and Aragorn are locked to Glittering Caves 2 turns because of Beorning Skin-changers, avoiding another CvCC thanks to Flatter a Foe.
Only last turn was very good with 8 MPs scored.
I finally lost 14-34 !

Last round was against Miguel (Mados) for Poland/Spain.
We had again some resource identical.
Miguel played the White Tree whereas I played a crowned Aragorn with a mortal Arwen.
My deck run very well.
Game ended with a deserved tie 28-28.
Hrum, Hoom ! Do not be hasty, that is my motto.

I need to apologize to the Spanish team, I haven't yet sent the prizes out, I've been a bit busy with life. I'm going to try to get them out this week. Again I'm sorry guys, soon I promise!
