Hope henchmania is good too. Hope you get chance to do a rwview for that!

I've decided to leave it in shrinkwrap for now. I can't see it being played soon because I already have a long list of games that I want to get to the table (and leaving for another jungle rodeo soon), and at the end of the year I'm going to reassess my collection and try to sell some things. So I fear a bit for Henchmania, but we'll see.

I must apologize for my lack of contributions to the forum over the last week.

This will probably make it clear:

Hopefully the most expensive tile I purchase  ;D

Unfortunately, the application doesn't support keyboard input - it requires a touch screen :(  :(n) :(n)

Well that's just daft. I'm a software developer, and honestly I don't understand this movement toward only supporting the most dumbed-down UIs possible. The human finger is the worst input device in computing history for anything involving any precision at all.

Well it was developed for android. 100% of mobile and tablets androids support touchscreen.  I doubt TVs were even considered, when they captured requirements.  If they were going to spend a few more days developing a decent keyboard interface for the 3 extra sales I doubt theyd consider it part of the MVP.  I put a request in to asmodee digital...so they might consider it in the future at least.

I’m back from holiday and just received a mega haul of games.


Especially looking forward to Century Spice Road.
Barony also caught my interest. It is by the same designer as Splendor with a little more meat on the bones.
Equally excited for Valletta. Looks like another good title from HiG, (via Z-man).
More Carc is always a good thing  ;D  Same with Onitama.


Had a chance to play Terraforming Mars at a meet up last month and just loved it. I’ve had my eye on this for some time but that play through sealed the deal. Great mid-weight plus game!
Le Havre has released its 10-year edition with all the mini expansions included that have been nearly impossible to find.
North Wind by Catan designer Klaus Teuber. This reimplements Starship Catan.


Being a Ewe fan boy I look forward to getting Cave vs Cave to the table.
Finally, the complete Fleet set ends the mother load. By a BGG pals account, it’s a big game in a small box.
Franks

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

Nice little package here Dragonlord!

I've had loads of good deliveries, but have had little to no time to post them:

'Near and Far' then 'Cable Car' arrived.

And also Greed & Raxxon:


then Hostage Negotiator, Northwest Passage, Temporum and By Order of the Queen:


Then 7th Continent Arrived:


I have to say if there was a prize for best packaged kickstarter 7th Continent should win it:



Finally, I got a very special gift from Aenima.  I almost missed the package, but was able to case after the postman to collect it!
It really is very beautiful and shows Aenima's artistic talents!  The photo doesn't really do it justice I'm afraid :(
I will have to get this framed and put up on the wall!  Thanks so much Aenima!

Decar, I think you just out hauled my last haul! Especially with that little gem from aenima, nice!

Let's see who can get Northwest Passage to the table quicker! My money is on you  ;)  though I would like to get at it at some point.

Here, I'm still waiting for my Kingdom Builder: Harvest, Kickstarter. I finally got a hold of the fulfillment company, Ship Naked and they confirmed my delivery got lost in all the delays. Happily I just received the shipping notice and I understand Queen games has upgraded the single expansion to a Big Box(?).
