Merit for those photos Decar!

I like the range of colours that has been achieved using just plain metals, or have these been painted?

Are the sizes of the meeples comparable to normal meeples? They look a little larger and flatter than I'd expect, but certainly very nice!

Thank you very much!

Two great questions.  All of the meeple have been cast in their selected metal. I believe from a 3d printed mould.

Ive taken two more photos against a pink meeple so you can compare:



If I have a chance ill put them up against those metal meeple that were on kickstarter last year.

Hi Paul.
I hope you enjoy the surprising mini-expansions.

Yes. Thank you!

Now I have two actually. One yellow/yellow School set was also sent about a month or two ago by another member. Gonna keep both Justin Case. :)

LOL!

Yeah. Good thing we have kettlefish to care for us (or just me?)  making sure I won't do that mistake again.

Treasure this Paul. There's a lot of fakes going around. Sad that Doris keeps trying to pretend to be me but I can't say I blame her...

Paul,

:) I've not forgotten. I was on my out when I checked the mailbox so had to run back up again to post with a photo and head out again.

Been exercising every day this July. Since February I've lost 15 kg and have a bit more to go.

Really pleased to have got my hands on one of these. Many thanks to Decar for allowing me to take over his bid in light of the fact that I didn’t manage to secure one for myself in the auction!

I just received my first-ever blank tiles (6 sheets) and the new Labyrinth tiles, along with a bonus sticker from Cundco. I am happy that these made it successfully to Thailand, as I have had some trouble with overseas mail to Thailand. Andreas of Cundco was very helpful in ensuring the package was addressed exactly correctly.

It appears my 3-year-old daughter has claimed the Spieldoch! magazine as her own. :)

Welcome to the World of Tile Printing :)

A nice haul! They say learning a language is easier when you're younger, so she'll probably find German have no trouble reading it  :))
