Jobby takes a moment to recap on the progress of his 2017 11x Best of Three challenge…
Round 2, Done!
Regular readers will know that Sarah and I have been playing a challenge where we have selected eleven games and are playing best of three matches of each one. We play through all of them once (‘Round 1’) and then repeat (‘Round 2’). Any which are tied we then play a third time (‘Round 3’). We’ve just finished Round 2 so this seemed like a good time to catch up with where we are.

Sarah in the Lead
So, after finishing Round 2, Sarah has a very firm lead: 4 matches to my 2. We are left with five games to play, of which I need to win four to win the challenge! Things are feeling tense for me – particularly as Sarah managed to win games of At the Gates of Loyang and Elysium. I was sure I was going to win both of those matches 2-0.
Hmph! It’s looking grim for me so here’s a picture to cheer myself up. It’s from If Wishes Were Fishes!
