Great to meet so many people in person!  Big thanks to BigBoss for delivering a package for me.  Hopefully I'll be able to repay the service one day!

Are you not at the fair today?  Again we meet at 1pm.  Same place!

Awesome guys. Wish I could attend! A few from the local gaming club are there. Who knows, maybe bumped into them. :) It's a big place but still.

Just a quick note to say that Essen has been amazing so far. Decar and I are sharing a very nice hotel room but it's a bit of a walk so my feet are getting sore. But we've met a lot of people and bought a lot of games. I presented KJW with the frame on Thursday and he seemed very impressed. I even gave a little speech which was fun too. I've played the new Amazonas spin-off 3 times and am a big fan so far, looking forward to playing it again tomorrow when we meet jungleboy and Jere. So much to talk about, and photos to post, but will leave that until I get home...

Some impressions from the Fan-Meeting on thursday evening.


Listeners to danisthirty's funny speech (from left Udo, Kettlefish, Moritz Brunnhofer (CEO of HiG), KJW).


danisthirty's during his funny speech.




He gave KJW the present.


KJW is unpacking his present.


KJW is presenting his present to the audience.




Bernd Brunnhofer (CEO of HiG; together with his son) is admiring the present.


Udo gave KJW and Bernd Brunnhofer a very nice Carcassonne-game as a present. This game is "hidden" in an middleage style leather book.
You can find pictures here: http://www.carcassonne-forum.de/viewtopic.php?f=249&t=3287&p=43533#p43531







MrNumbers is presenting his prize. He won a Carcassonne-Quiz.

Is there an audio recording of danisthirty's funny speech? Did anyone else think it was funny apart from danisthirty himself? emoji code13]

Thanks for the photos Benny, those are great! It was lovely meeting you and seeing what Carcassonne projects you've been working on... 8) :(y)

Everyone seemed to think it was pretty funny when I suggested that the frame contained a photo of myself. I'll have to get him one of those for next year instead. Tom was videoing it but there's a gap where he ran out of space on his camera and switched to his phone.

Lovely photos Benny. It was also lovely meeting and talking with you! I also have a short clip of Klaus-Jürgen Wrede playing the piano.  Tomorrow I will ask him if it is ok to share with you all.

Jungleboy how was your trip to Essen?

Jungleboy how was your trip to Essen?

All good, thanks! It took about eight hours, I switched trains three times and I watched about six hours of a beloved Ken Burns documentary. See you guys at one of the meeting spots today? Or maybe I'll just listen in the halls for laughter and then follow it to find danisthirty.  :))

Great pics! I am so envy I couldn't attend. Looks so cozy and you really bond after such a get together.

If not already, will these be up on Twitter for retweeet?
