The campaign for Brass began today, by Roxley Games (publishers of Santorini). They have smashed their target already and have made over $200,000 Canadian dollars in just a few hours. It's about the Industrial Revolution which doesn't interest me much, plus it's expensive, so I won't back it, but it's a very impressive opening day.

The London Beer Flood story in the first update has got me more interested in the Industrial Revolution, so I might have to think about this after all. The campaign is at over CDN$500K already.

Brass looks like a good game with great detail put into the art. But $100 USD for both is a bit beyond my price point for a game (except Carc in totality of course). Has anyone played the original version from 10 years ago to weigh in on the game mechanics?

Thirdly, I can see via tracking that there were two unsuccessful delivery attempts for 5-Minute Dungeon while I was away (again no contact, again no slip for pick-up from the post office). So now I fear that this will be sent back too and I don't see how I can do anything about it.

Now I see from the tracking info that they made a third unsuccessful attempt on Monday and so now the game has been sent back. This time I was actually home, but they don't know the building door code so they just give up without calling or without buzzing. This is becoming a big problem.

I told you that you shouldn't have move to Lisbon, postmans are much better in Estoril.
As already suggested I would strongly recommend a PO BOX at least until you get to know the postman or start to regularly receive normal post on your address.

But you shouldn't stop buying games just because you have a lousy postman. You must fight the system. You should start fighting it by backing BRASS.

We know the regular postman and receive regular mail but packages are often delivered separately by different people which is the problem. And I'm not going to pay for a PO Box when I can just use your address instead.  >:D

Dan lives unhelpfully far from where I usually am. I'll have to talk to him about that.

Meanwhile the 5-minute Dungeon people have responded and they're sending another one ... to Chooselife :)

I can only apologise for my selfishness. :-[ If it helps, our house move does appear to be back on again for the time being at least. Third time lucky! :(y)
