I also received my BGG delivery of Volcanos!

A sneaky way to include a photo  ;D

The Cacao volcano mini expansion arrived today. I don't even own the base game yet! This is the first time I have seen Cacao tiles in person and they look great!


Franks

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

My Big Carcassonne Box arrived from BW - if I could convince Tapatalk to post it at a sensible size a photo would be forthcoming... But I doubt anyone wants a 3000x2000 pixel image :)
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

Managed to earn a little bit of extra cash the other week so thought a little treat was in order (something the boys and I have wanted since we started playing the digital version a few months ago). Postie delivered it today which is great timing as we've got a family games night planned for tomorrow. Happy days!

I received a couple of little items today.

One from our pal, Decar. Thanks for the Brettspiel Adventskalender, Targi promo!

I also got the Ticket to Ride Europe - Orient Express promo from the Days of Wonders website, (free with paid shipping).

A visit from the Postie today... Where a parcel posted in Germany has landed here, the alert from DHL/DeutschePost has told me it is delivered and 8 hours later ParcelForce still don't know its delivered (it was a ParcelForce employee that handed it to me and his PDA I signed...)

Something learned again: happy bunny is a new phrase for me, it's "Glückspilz" in german (which literally translates into luck mushroom).

River Tiles from the PC game.  It's a copy protection mechanic.  Game shows you a tile and a letter and you have to enter the code on the back of the tile!?!?!  Crazy right?!

A bit ashamed but it was the last one I needed from the basic expansions. :)  :red-meeple:

Nothing to be ashamed of. Some people don't like and others do. That's fine. If you like it then great! If you don't like it but bought it anyway for reasons of completion then that's cool too. Somebody on these forums was kind enough to send me The Catapult as a gift and whilst I haven't played it yet, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to if I was playing Carc and others were keen to try it out. Even if you don't use the catapult itself, the tiles are quite cool and can add a lot of interest to the game...

Yep I plan to use it mainly for the tile without the catapult itself, but i'm sure I will try it properly when I play with kids, looking forward actually :)

PS: they have a lot of stocks on amazon.de for 15 € and since it's unlikely to get reprinted even in new art, might be time to grab some ;)

[Edit]: 13 € now actually, grrrr

My latest arrivals:



Many thanks to JT Atomico for the Wheel of Fortune book (I still owe you for this, I will contact you for details of how best to pay) and also to a kind lady on eBay who sold me a first edition of Carcassonne (look - no Spiel des Jahres logo! :D)

It's been a good day! :(y)

I wondered who the person was that had the bids cancelled and a new BiN setup... I was planning to snipe on that... Glad it has gone to an appreciative home.
