Especially if you'd planned to pay him in Essen for your South Seas tile(s)! (like I had #wishidboughtmyeurosbeforebrexit :'()

At the Spiel '16 in Essen:

like each year we will meet us  at the Spiel a small fan-meeting to say hello.
at the HiG-Tournament  and CundCo booth: Hall 7 booth A113

on Thursday - 13. Oct 2016: 1:00 pm
We will meet us only for a short small talk - this year not for a game play, because most of us will also visit the fan-members-meeting at the special event in the evening.

on Friday - 14. Oct 2016: 1:00 pm
We will meet us for a small talk and then we will go to a place where we can sit down and play a game.

Here comes the Hall 3 as a pdf file.

I have marked some of the booths - for example the HiG booth

In the comments you will find some booth numbers and the names of the booth owners

example:
Halle 3 - Stand B113 (hall 3 - booth B113) = HiG

When you like to go easily and fast through the halls - from one hall to the other - then you can use the "FG = Freigelände (outdoor area)" - see the green line on the right side of the hall 3.

At CarcF I have posted some more information when you like to travel through Essen with metro, tram or bus.:

At Spiel - like each year we meet us at the HiG tournament booth - this year we met us on Thursday and on Friday - each day at 1 pm.

On Thursday we met us only for a short small talk from 1pm to 2pm. The members make appointments and organize the travel to the evening event and we all talk about this and that. I've met Arnold this year - a kind of never ending story - since 2012 he promissed me to meet us each year. So this year he was there too and all the other members of CarcC and CarcF.

Decar and danisthirty were very impressed about the Spiel. They told me that their UK games-expo is almost as big as one of the hall of the Spiel. At the Spiel we have 6 halls this year - some are a bit smaller and some are huge.

MrNumbers and Skane traveled around 2 days to visit the Spiel in Essen.

The members meeting is always a place where we change our pieces directly.

On Friday - we met us too - this time the group was smaller and this time we played our game - "CC-Amazonas".

I've organized the games from Herner Spielezentrum (at the HiG tournament booth). The players: kettlefish, danisthirty, Skane, MrNumbers, Günther.
MrNumbers had won the game - as usual...

On Friday it was not easy to get a place to play the game - all tables were full. So we had to wait a bit for a free table. Then we sit together around one table with 9-10 persons. Udo met us only on Friday this year.

Udo forwarded me this photo:
