How did they get there??

It varies I think. I don't know for sure but I imagine some will have driven, others may have got the train and some, especially those from further afield, will probably have come via plane.

and no doubt some used the magic portal tile from Princess and the Dragon -  but I think he was asking who beat who? to get to the final

Each year at the Spiel in Essen, I buy some wooden pieces at the booth from Spielmaterial.de.

Here are some examples from this year:

kettlefish - it looks like you bought all the colors of 12mm dice - is that for scorekeeping?  :)

I did not know those were available at Spielmaterial.de
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

You gave me the idea with the scorekeekping, I like to try it.

The dice have a size of 16mm.

Ah, I see. You'll find that the 12mm work better as they fit on the track better. The 16mm are very full on the track. But the 12mm are hard to find in all the various colors.

To get a brown 12mm for example, I had to buy a travel edition Backgammon game and rob one of the brown dice. It's a perfect brown. :)

For my custom color meeples (lavender, maroon, etc.) I had to spray paint some.

In the picture are 12 dice colors, but in the dropdown you can only choose 10 :-(
