Sadly the grey board that i ordered was a normal brown board..

:(

Came across these today as well. Might be interested in buying them and trading/sending if someone is interested?

Since all the cool kids are getting these at the moment I guess I probably should do too. If they're still available could you PM me about them Valheru? I'll be your best friend forever and call you Val-Hero for a month if you do. Those are my conditions.

In the post from CundCo today:

Pink & Purple "completion" meeples (the ones for all of the expansions that didn't come with meeples in the extended colours) arrived - wagons, femeeples, barns, mayors & robbers.
Das Fest (hat tip to @JoeSesquipedalian for the heads up - merit already given at point of ordering)
South Seas - Friday (I didn't own the game at the point I ordered them)
GoldRush - Sheriff (I don't even own the base game yet  O0)
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

I've contacted the seller and I'm waiting on his response. If/when I hear something from him and finish the deal, they're yours! ;)

I'll wait a bit with sending my signed tiles so I can include them.


My order from Cundco arrived as well today! The fest and a pink/purple robber are mine!

Also, might have finished a deal on Cathars and Fliers. Good tidings!

Thanks very much Valhero. :) :(y)

Meanwhile, in Dan land, these two arrived today:



With any luck, they should be seeing some table action before the end of next week. Photos to follow...

I'm excited by this arrival!

Tuscany expands Viticulture. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/128621/viticulture

This series has quickly becoming our new favourite worker placement game. We actually own the updated Viticulture: Essential Edition (2015), which has, a very few, elements of Tuscany already included. Regardless there are many more mini expansion in Tuscany that further expands the game. I also understand by posts from the designer / publisher, Jamey Stegmaier, there are 5 mini expansions in this set that will not get a future reprinted.

First attached photo is the Tuscany expansion box that just arrived and the second was our first game of V:EE.

Highly recommend the series, especially if you like Stone Age or Agricola / Agricola: all creatures ...

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

These arrived for me today:



They are the weird river tiles with number codes on the back of them that come from a version of the Carcassonne PC game. :green-meeple:

They can not be played without a bag because the numbers can be stored, however, they must be safe included in Completionism Poll

Cool find Decar! Anything exciting about the tiles or components inside?

Nothing overly special about it the printing.  The box is the most interesting bit.  I especially like the Blue Carcassonne Logo, I've never see this before.   

The inside is just like a regular Carcassonne box, except it's much bigger.  I've not looked at all the tiles, but they look regular.  The Inns and Cathedrals CRCr tile is without bushes.

The rules are all distributed as separate sheets dated 2000, 2002 and 2003.  Inns and Cathedrals is listed as 'The Expansion'.  I'll need to check which edition of the base game rules are printed, but shows tall meeple.

Very cool. I might try and pick one of these up if I see it anywhere, but at least the lack of unique components means I won't have the full completionist itch for it!

One thing about the I&C CRCR tile, did this gain bushes and a watermark at the same time? Or does there exist a tile out there with the bushes but not the watermark or vice versa? From what research I have done I think that they both appeared together on the Big Box 1 version of I&C and have existed on all editions since, but that could be wrong.

Decar, that set looks nice, will have to keep my eye out. I can't image they are easy to find.

I've been away for the last few days in the National capital (Ottawa) for industry / Government meetings. Came home to this lot and am especially excited about Walnut Grove. It looks to be a very good blend of Worker placement and Tile laying with a Rondel system to boot. In the BGG blurb it is self described as, "Walnut Grove could be described as a light mashup between Carcassonne and Agricola." Two of my favourite games! https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/103185/walnut-grove

I will leave this blatant commercial with a quote from Purge reviews, (who has experience with the game and can say it better than I can);

"The real brilliance of Walnut Grove is found in the meshing together of the tile laying to get provide the main resources you need with the rondel movement to either get what you need that you couldn't by using the farms or by attempting to score as many Victory Points as possible. While these two mechanics do not occur at the same time, your planning must incorporate both to have an effective strategy."

Second image is from the Purge review.

Ooh I'm also excited about the rest of the lot as well  ;D
