If I get to play in it I will definitely be there, but somehow I think this may be rather unlikely...

Two weeks on Sunday until the UK championships!

Some day I'll go, even if it's just to meet Klaus- Juergen Wrede and thank him for the great game he's given us!

Unfortunately I won't be able to go to Essen this year after attending the last 3 events (2011,2012,2013).

I'll have to travel to France and stay there 2 months and a half for work.

Ofcourse I'll be there... :D
4th consecutive year...awesome.... I will be staying at Ibis Dusseldorf Airport, for 3 days and will visit Spiel Friday & Sunday.

Any news yet about new Carcassonne games/promos @ Spiel?
Another Carcassonne-Around-The-World spin-off? I expect the recently released Cloister mini-expansion to be available from Cundco/HIG booth?
