« on: June 03, 2015, 12:59:57 AM »
A question to the people who visited the UK Games Expo:
Did you get a magazine of the UK Games Expo?

I did - I think it was mostly the same as the PDF on the Games' Expo website.

Udo wrote an article about the community of Carcassonne and the forums CarcassonneCentral and Carcassonne-Forum. Is the article in that magazine?

I didn't see it - but I will check again tonight (unless someone beats me to it).

I think the PDF is only a partial copy of the magazine:

Yes it was included, and was somewhat longer than the original article I proofread. I'll see about scanning it (or at least just taking a picture) so that I can share it on the forums if nobody else has done it by this evening.  :(y)

Thank you danisthirty.

The important part of this article you find under the headline "The Fans".

I am so sorry because of the wrong spelling of www.carcassonne-forum.de.

What are you thinking about the article itself (beside the wrong spelling)?

The article is fantastic. It gives a real sense of the community and work that goes on in these forums as well as our mutual (sometimes fanatical) enjoyment of this excellent game. Very nice to have our profile raised.

Udo mentioned the geocaching exercise during his talk - my wife and I love used to do it very often with her father; we will have to keep a special look out for the missing ones :)

It's a very good article!

I'm also jealous of the Tour-Bus :)
