I believe it's "The Castles of Mystras"
Not sure what it refers to though

Radlands was definitely a good one! Unclewill told me they play it regularly, and it's a 2-player game, which got me interested.

the mats are part of the Super Deluxe version, which is a bit more tricky to find, but seems worth it. I'm on the hunt :)

I really like the look of those cards! Really well made!

Yesterday i had 2 deliveries, giving me some more major expansions, and a small little box that i had actually been looking for for a while!




And then this morning the postman came by before i was even out of bed! But a great box to add to the collection :D

I've never played any of the other version of Love Letter, but understand they often have slightly different rules (or better said, other effects on the cards)?
I have the standard old edition, and have played the deluxe one, but have recently learned from @Scott that the new edition has new characters again!

I've got all the official stuff, but also don't have all the official stuff.....

So I'll keep collecting  ;)

Seeing that list i'd say you're already a big collector of the game!

And every collection is unique, which makes the collecting for Carcassonne so much fun :D
(Plus, 'complete' is always relative, as we'll always find something else that you'll need to be 'complete' ;)

Part of my meetup with Unclewill and MMike of course included some exchange of Carcassonne things!

I had some things already pre-arranged with them, but even on the day Unclewill showed a few more boxes that i couldn't say no to hahaha



Great new additions to the Museum!
The French BB6 was delivered by my postman in the morning, just before i left, so i thought i did well to join the group picture :D

Following the success of other meet ups, and as we all had stuff for each other, it was time for another meet up!

@unclewill , @MMike and myself met up in central London for a day of board gaming, chatting and of course exchanging stuff!

Before MMike arrived, Unclewill and i started with a nice game of Radlands.


This game is all about making an aggressive strategy towards the destruction of your opponent's bases. The cards look beautiful, and the Super Deluxe version seems like definitely the best version to get! I made a bold move near the end (the literal and figurative Nuclear option), and Will had just the right cards to punish me for it, helping him win the game!

Once MMike had arrived, we decided on a nice little starter; Art Robbery


A little game i picked up in the Netherlands last year. We played a gang of museum robbers who needed to divide their loot. You can take loot from the middle, or steal it away from others. A guard dog can help you to keep your stuff, but then again it's not a loyal dog...
I managed to play my strategy right, have enough alibis at the end of the game, and won!

We continued with a game of Carcassonne!
We found a spin off that i hadn't played in ages, and the others had not played at all; Carcassonne Mayflower (aka New World, A Carcassonne Game)


We liked the art on the tiles, which is very detailed, and the premise of trying to reach further and further west. The Surveyors managed to push us further west, although MMike managed to finish a big city all the way on the East coast (New York), which was left abandoned by Will earlier in the game.
We battled a bit over the fields, but all had in mind that they would be as powerful as the fields in normal Carcassonne. In this game they can be strong, but not as strong. Unclewill did well though, scoring over 30 points from them, moving him from last to second place! My lead was big enough, making me win my second game in a row!

The next game was a quick/relaxed game; Love Letter
I really like this game, and managed to convince the others to play. We discussed some other versions of the game, which have made me interested in trying to find out more about them!


This time, Will was relentless, and managed to win by a landslide! MMike did very well, but I had no momentum in this game so i had no change whatsoever :)

After some snacks and more chatting, we decided we needed to play a game of good 'ol Carcassonne!
Unclewill and MMike had not seen/played C3 yet, and i just happened to have brought a copy with me!
MMike being the creative artist he is, brought some hand made and 3d printed meeple sets. Including Oreo meeple, Cheese meeple and meeples with weapons inside them!
We decided to play with these sets during the game, as they looked too amazing not to!


It was a decently nice game, with not that many blocks or joins. Unclewill managed to get a 2nd meeple into a decent city, although MMike blocked that city, so it would not be completed.
I managed to sneak in a farmer into Unclewill's field, which he only managed about 4 turns later, but he did manage to block my second meeple from joining the field.
But it was not enough to win, as i had a lead just big enough to win this one



A great afternoon of games and catching up! Great to see you guys, and we'll try to do it soon again!

The C&E page is based on boxes mainly, and title of releases, rather than differences between certain releases
For example, C2.0 and C2.1 have not been split out.

But yes, there is so much more information to be researched!
