World Record Attempt 2016
« on: January 27, 2016, 08:48:33 AM »
It's official!

This March I will be hosting a world record attempt in a convention here in Sweden called GothCon. Info will be available at gothcon.se soon but anything there will be available here as well. I will try to update the thread as progression goes with info and images.

Unfortunately I'm in a bit of a ruch out of the house but thought I at least upload what I've done today... Sorting tiles. x_x





More to come with info such as game play, rule changes, dates etc!

And more importantly what will you do with them all after the event? (If anyone has a spare set of original artwork tiles going spare... I might be interested :))
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

I'm not sure you would believe me but this is what really happened: I sent an E-mail and two weeks later they arrived at my doorstep. :D

I'm not sure yet. My cousin wants me to keep it all but I could consider myself selling away spare parts to get back some of the money invested in this. I'll also be giving away prizes during the event.

Merit for you Paul for finally achieving this goal you have had for some time. Make sure you do a timelapse or some other cool way of chronicling the event so we can all enjoy it too :)

Info coming soon! ;) Got home late last night and ended up in bed at 7am. Let's hope the coffee I'm having this instant will cure me of all the beer I had!

I'll have one taken in April. Promise! :) The tiles have been sorted a little for the event, forgot to bath in them before doing this.
