Keep thinking I've got all I need from BW but keep finding just one more thing to buy...

I find that, that's when I start to send them requests for new things!

My latest thing from Basically Wooden: an absolutely beautiful box for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, with an etching of the inscription of the one ring on the lid.

That box looks amazing jungleboy - what wood is it?

I had a note from Basically Wooden today - they wanted to let everyone know that they will be attending Essen Spiel 2016 (Hall 2 on Stand E2 118).  They have kindly offered to let people pick up any orders and their booth, and save on postage!  :(y) :(y)

A member of BGG: Ad Best recently visited the Basically Wooden workshop and took some pictures:

You can see some prototypes they are working on and the biggest box of castles and skew bridges you'll ever see.

I am surprised that Basically Wooden uses the C from Carcassonne.

Cool, I am thinking about going to Hereford in December as a side trip from a visit to Birmingham so I might pop in too :)

Me too!

Let us know, I'm sure a few other forum members might make the trip too!  :(y) :(y)

It would be during the week so I'm not sure how convenient it would be for anyone else, but of course I'd welcome any companions. It would almost certainly be the morning or early afternoon of Friday 16 Dec, because my commitments in Birmingham end on Thursday afternoon but my flight out isn't until Friday evening. My primary reason for going to Hereford is to see the Mappa Mundi and the chained library, but it'd be nice to see the BW studio too.

Yes, I'm staying in Hereford on the evening of the 15th (arriving at about 7:30pm), and taking the train back to Birmingham at 2:30pm on the 16th. I mentioned it to Basically Wooden at Essen but didn't give them the exact dates, so I'll do that. I know it's mid-week and all, but if anyone was up for some games on the night of the 15th, that would probably make the most sense.

In the "love it" or "hate it" category: BW have been asked to make Carcassonne tile grids by a customer to hold tiles in place. They would like to know if the wider community is interested in something like this. So, do you like them or not?



At the moment they are working with 4x4 squares which can link together. So at the start of the game you just place one square on the table and expand as you go.

In Essen I talked to andrew about whether he could make these grids. A few days later, he showed me the results.

Oh yes. I love it.  ;D I have the grids in order and we have with 3 people from the German forum already which ordered. The grids are just before delivery. I'm looking forward to it. Andrew has also developed a box to fit into the 25 grids.  8) :)

However, the crosses must be glued in the middle. But this is not a problem. The box (flexiti box) must also be assembled.

The grids cost £ 3 each. I have ordered 25 pieces  8) :)
