Hi all,
we have the first day of our fan meeting.
In our room we have some cookies and something to drink.
It is a very hot summer day. The door is open.

Moritz Brunnhofer (HiG) is explaining the new spin-off game Carcassonne-Safari.
MrNumbers, PresetM, maik63de, Benny and some other people are looking and following the words from Moritz.

Christof Tisch is explaining the game Majesty to Decar and his 2 other players.

I am writing here. Udo is looking around.

Just taking a moment to say hello!

The weather here is fantastic - there is not a cloud in the sky!

We arrived in good time and Udo Schmidt picked us up from Dresen airport in the infamous Carcassonne on Tour Bus!

You can see photos on the twitter feed!

As Decar already told, the weather is beautiful - 26-27 degrees (comparing with 12 in Latvia when I was leaving :) )
Already played Carcassonne Safari two times (won second 8)). Tomorrow Carcassonne-Team Challenge begins. Excited! ;D

We are having a wonderful day here in Saxony.

Kettlefish has let me use her laptop to send you messages.

Last night we played Majesty, Azul, Skull King and the new Safari.
https://twitter.com/Carcassonne/status/1014413282495561729

MrNumbers won all these games!

This morning was a very important contest!

6 teams from across the world have been made to play for a very amazing trophy:
https://twitter.com/Carcassonne/status/1014411823729213442

The teams have 2 players.  So Mrs_Decar and I represent the United Kingdom.

Each team player plays 4 games as follows:

Player 1a vs Player 1b
Player 2b vs Player 2b
Player 1a vs Player 2b
Player 2a vs Player 1b

For each win 2points is awarded!

It is hard for me to upload photos, so I am using Twitter. Please like and follow our journey!
https://twitter.com/Carcassonne/status/1014440983101149184

You will see we have done well!

The next round is tomorrow - wish us luck!

Good Morning CarcC
today the 3rd day starts with a great breakfast.
I am writing a bit here in the forum. Decar and Mrs_Decar are playing with MrNumbers a card game - I don't know what it is. The sun is is shining, but today there also some clouds in the sky.
At 10 am the 3rd part of our tournament will start. Again there will be two games with each 2 player a game.
Carcassonne base game with the new edition tiles but the rules like the classical edition. No river, no abbot but with the farmers.
At 12:30 pm we will go to lunch and at 2 pm we will go to a city tour by bus - Görlitz
At 6pm we will have our dinner
At 8 pm we will play "Beat the Meeple"
