I received recently two very welcomed additions to my C1 collection: The Besiegers and The Tunnels. I was searching for both for a reasonable price for quite some time as two most wanted items from my C1 wishlist. Sadly, while the Tunnels come in a neat original Spielbox edition box, no tokens were included. I stupidly overlooked a small note "only tiles" in the product description by the seller at BGG (otherwise, I would be reluctant to buy an incomplete item). I noticed that the tunnel tokens were already discussed here some years back for the possibilities to diy versions of alternative colours, so I will probably try some of the options, but if someone has spare or alternative tokens, I will pf course appreciate these.
Still I feel this delivery qualifies well for the "I love the postman" thread, not least for the used post stamps. I am a frantic collector of polar philately items and as a biologist by occupation, a big fan of penguins :-)

Those tiles look great, and also the stamps!  ;D

You can also get some wooden discs in various colors to do the trick... You have 13 colors to choose from.

I found it on a second-hand website in Spain. €15 plus shipping.

Somehow I doubt whether people want to see my correspondence with the IRS (USA tax agency) -  :pink-meeple:

The postman has delivered me a brand new Cult Siege and Creativity today. That I have ordered in a webshop in Germany.  It was expensive but worthy

Nice!

Did you get it at Spiele Akademie? They seem to be one of the only ones who actually still have these in stock. They must've bought a lot when it first came out  :P

I got the Travel box from Basically Wooden in yesterday. Really happy with this one! The quality is really nice




That is going to be my C2 travel set. Base game plus first 2 expansions will fit nicely in there
