It's quite a big box, can't wait to open it in just over a week!

*ugh* I normally love the postman. In fact I got my copies of the new German Monasteries and Barber Surgeons as well as a set of white meeples. Unfortunately that wasn't everything I ordered and I am missing some of what I ordered. I am missing a set of orange meeples and more importantly my Spiel 18' promo tile. Now I admit when I placed the order I tried to order a ringmaster in gray, orange, and white. Of course Cundco told me they didn't have ringmasters in alternate colors (as I kind of expected) and thus offered me a voucher for the small price I paid for them. That's fine. That little hiccup shouldn't have impacted the rest of my order though.

I've already emailed Cundco and so we'll see what happens next.

My Cundco order made it to this side of the pond.  I bought a copy of the new art festival just to hit the threshold to get the spiel 18 piece.  I am not sure I will ever actually use it as I have the old art festival as well.   The little magnets are cute and are already on the refrigerator.  I can't wait to give the 2 new expansions a go.  I have to wait for my wife to get better as I can't have her contaminate my tiles.

That is sad to hear, hope they still have one for you

Yes  :black1-meeple:

With all my new KS game since  2 years, it will be close to 70 new games, so I've created a facebook gaming page for it.

Also working on a personal boardgame: https://www.facebook.com/pg/jeupassionsociete/photos/?tab=album&album_id=337239493488832

Now, after renewing my games collection, I'm more quiet on KS   :black1-meeple:

Wow Dragonlord, you've got quite the range of games!  According to BGG I've now reached 178 games (excluding expansions and spinoffs).  I'll be happier when that goes back down to around 100.  So you've still got some way to go  ;D

Hopefully, Dan is following your exploits on the CarcC Facebook thing, I'm not on there—but had a quick look at your prototypes.
You've been working on this for quite some time, I hope you're making progress.  That board looks like quite the adventure and anything with dragons gets my vote (due to my homelands).

Another arrival today thanks to Kickstarter:


It's light and frantic. I know a few folks got this: hope it lives up to expectations  :D :(y)

I was surprised the Armistice edition appeared. There was no real clear releasedate last time I checked. I recently bought the basegame so I added the expansion last week. No minis tho.. Excited to play it. Your thoughts on the game?

We played for the first time last night. The new box doesn't have a 2player mode (with a bot), instead each player takes 2 grizzled.  It's not too bad playing like that though. I like how the control ebs away very during each mission, it can feel very futile. I'm interested by the support step, especially with 4 players, I kinf of think the game theory won't work as intended if certain cards are handed out.  We lost our first game just because one grizzled had 5 hard knock cards, almost impossible to counter because no one could gice him support.


It's very interesting though and looking forward to progressing the campaign.
