Here are all the standings as per the app. So long story short, your GT-points were correct, Roger.

Regarding the Grand Tour, I’m hoping the change of forum will restore some of the magic my pink team had during the first two stages. Otherwise, my Grand Tour could end in tears…

The time standings are a bit messy though. Your rouleur isn’t on top for example (although I admire the effort make us believe that :wink:). So I would just follow the app standings, as the wonders of technology do all the calculating for me and make sure I don’t completely mess up :smile:

I’ve now moved my record-keeping over to text files - less pretty but easier to check changes in version control. We’ll see how this works.

I have a lot of software that turns things into standings and points. But they all work on the basis that if 1 and 2 tie, they can share the points for first and second place; in this game they all get the points…

We disagree on the team ranking, though. Blue and red are both on 6 points, but blue has a rider with 12:30 while red’s slower rider is at 8:30. So I think red is ahead, and (per the Tour rules) places after blue.

Exhaustion:
Black rouleur: had 6, drops 3, 3 left
Black sprinteur: had 3, drops 1, 2 left
Blue rouleur: had 7, drops 3, 4 left
Blue sprinteur: had 2, drops 1, 1 left
Green rouleur: had 3, drops 1, 2 left
Pink rouleur: had 10, drops 5, 5 left
Pink sprinteur: had 2, drops 1, 1 left
White sprinteur: had 1, drops 0, 1 left

Stage 5 is Carcassonne, extended:


Please place riders in order: white, green, black, blue, red, pink

Hmm, looks like it yeah. I think the app looks at who has the best podium-places in case of equal Tour points (Blue with 2 wins is better than Red’s 3 silver medals). But your way sounds reasonable too. Although it maybe is good if we sort this out now, in case people finish on the same points at the end of the tour.

I’m going by

‘Flamme Rouge - Grand Tour rules - english-print-v2.pdf’

At the start of the next stage, riders choose their
starting square in reverse order of TP (rider with
lowest TP chooses 1st). In case of a tie, choose in
reverse time order (rider with worst time chooses 1st).

(Asger clarified somewhere on BGG that you still place the whole team at once.)

Ahhh disregard my comment then. I was looking at version 1.

I’ll take a boringly predictable C-F.


blue, red, pink to place.

But it’s so satisfyingly aligned… Even the color sequence of the rows is aesthetically pleasing.

It is indeed. Also, PangolinPaws is again doing the same as Roger. It might be time to change their name to ChameleonPaws!

So confusing that the sprinteur-cards are shown before the rouleur cards now :sweat_smile:
