A New Carcassonne Champion is Born!
« on: October 18, 2013, 04:54:10 AM »
Hello all!

I'm feeling very excited at the moment as my wife has just given birth (at 8:20 this morning) to our second child; a son! (see new profile picture)

We haven't made any big announcements yet but I was desperate to tell someone so thought I'd share our news with all of my Carcassonne buddies! Looking forward to teaching him how to play our favourite game (along with a lot of other things) but it may be a few years off yet...

All the best,
Dan, Becky, Jess and Ben

I recently became a father, a wonderful experience.
I'm very happy for you, Best wishes.  :)

His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Congratulations with a new family member! I'm sure that your son will be true Carcassonne master!  :red-meeple:

P.S. My 6-years old son already wins about 70% of games with a computer opponent (Android). Still need to teach him correctly place farmers :)

I am waiting for my 16 month old to be old enough to learn Kids of Carcassonne without trying to eat the tiles.

Congratulations!  Our new daughter means less time playing Carcassonne, but it will be great to teach her the game when she is ready!
