566TEAM ROBORALLY two match reports, 4/1/09 and 11/1/09
- Jan 19, 2009
I need to catch up with those league tables, by reporting the 2 games played so far in 2009, for the record. (They're already included in Allan's latest tables). Modesty inhibited me from posting the results of the first game of 2009 until people overtook me, but given that that might never happen ;)
RESULT of Game 16, of 4 January 2009 (Game 1 of 2009)
This game was 10th, 11th and 16th in the league, versus 3rd, 14th and newbie ZoranD.
DaveB .Won, survived 5 pts
BobR Won, survived, planted flag, MVP 7 pts
JeanH ...Won, survived, MVP .6 pts
JosepA ..Lost, survived, carried flag, pushed DaveB into pit ...3 pts
KeithD ..Lost, killed by board 0 pts
ZoranD .Lost, survived ...1 pt
This game was lethal - especially for KeithD. At one point, all 3 players carrying a flag were damaged down to having locked orders, and still far from home. There was a very lucky and funny twist at the end: JeanH accidentally shot team-mate BobR the very moment before BobR planted the flag to win; the only effect of this wild shot was to take one off JeanH's MVP-count, for shooting a friend, such that both he and BobR tied for an MVP-point each. Lucky Bob.
RESULT of Game 17, of 11 January 2009 (Game 2 of 2009)
This game had 5 of the top 7 players in it! It was 1st, 6th and 21st in the league, versus 2nd, 3rd and 7th.
TomasP .Lost, survived, pushed AndrewM off base 2 pts
AllanM ..Lost, survived, carried flag, killed JosepA 3 pts
HannesS Lost, killed by JosepA 0 pts
StuartF Won, survived, pushed AllanM off base 6 pts
JosepA .Won, killed HannesS, killed by AllanM, MVP .6 pts
AndrewM .Won, survived, planted flag ...6 pts
As you can see, it was lethal. Lots of pushing and two dead robots out of six. But the Evil Guys were well ahead when AndrewM planted the flag for their victory. Losing Captain TomasP blamed himself for their side's strategy (strategy??!), but of course it was the cards, the cards. Anyway, it took StuartF back to the top of the overall league, and to second in the 2009 league. Gulp.
