A good dice rolls Mr Numbers!

Just wanted to say I visited one of my FLGS ahead of my birthday and picked up:



Kodama (which I've written a mini-review for) - This is a fantastically simple tree building game.

and

Cthulhu Realms, which I've been playing the android app for the last week and thought my wife would prefer over Star Realms.


Oh, did the Cthulhu Realms came with a promo for the game Harbour? (Market Owner)
If so, and you don't have that game or no interest in the promo, any chance I'd be able to buy it from you? :blue-meeple:

Will take a look tonight - I think I did see something, but there was also a ninja-cat from Ninja-camp in there.

I got familiar with and enjoyed "Saint Petersburg" at yucata.de, that much, that I took into consideration to get a copy. The problem was, the first edition with artwork by Doris Matthäus, which was not only great, but also original and right to the point of the theme, an ingenious work, was out of print, and replaced by a rulewise maybe slightly improved, but ugly as hell second edition.

A few weeks ago, I saw a second hand copy of the original design at my FLGS, but costing €60 it was to expensive for me. Last Friday I went there again, and couldn't believe to see there a second copy for €25, which turned out to have included even the expansion, which is normally particularly expensive, if you want to get it nowadays. The caveat is, one of the Observatory cards of the original game is missing, but I don't consider this critical. There are replacement cards, costing 8 rather then 6 rubles in the expansion, and if I want to play by the original rules, I can use one of them, telling in advance, that it will cost 6 like the other one in our game. So I'm very happy with that purchase.

Was tempting to make a new thread, I love the closet... but figure this thread is still viable. ;)

Found this in my closet reminded by an upcoming Rolemaster event which I was invited to. Can't believe I still have these.

Awesome stuff! It looks like you must have spent most of your life in the closet! ;)

Not just one. :) Heck, my first apartment was so small it in itself felt like a closet.

Picked up Big Box 5 at a local store in Vancouver yesterday.

We are on the west coast for my sister in-laws wedding and holiday for a week. The festivities are now over and most of the family are gone. We now have a chance to get out and about and be tourists.

I was also here for business in April and spotted 3 copies of BB5 at a touristy Toy shop in a busy area (with surprisingly good prices) and didn't take the bait. I went back to the shop yesterday and there was one copy left that I just couldn't pass up.

I think we should change the game name to Crackassonne  ;D
Franks

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

One can never have enough, trust me, I would know. ;)

I'd buy here and there as well had I not have the issue of space and money.

Oh, so it's just those two tiny things holding you back from having a bigger Carcassonne collection?  >:D

Not having either of those things has stopped me....yet.....ahh credit :)

Well done on your find franks. BB5 is a great find for the completionist but also good for when you need to show 6/7 people how to play!

Yep. I even went as far as planning a kickstarter to make them print 1000 set of many of the old expansions. x_x

Plan was to sell them to people that still wanted them, cheap and keep the rest. 100.000 tiles next game...

Probably a good idea to set some lower targets for your next game. It might be a while before you can play again otherwiae!

A 100k game, thats is a game I would like to watch.

If Kickstarter is allowed to fund events, which I think it does, 100k game is quite possible. The tiles acquisition cost is very cheap in compare. The logistics and space to play it would cost more I think.
  I'll see what I can do. ;)
