I took my wife on holiday last week and had the post office hold my mail. The postwoman had a ton of stuff for us this morning, including these three items!



I went slightly overboard on this knock-off “Le Sac”. The artwork is very blurry, but I think it might be large enough for a game of MegaCarc. I might reorder in a smaller size because this thing is just too unwieldy for actual use.



I found an English translation of this book that was in the public domain and ordered a print-on-demand facsimile from Amazon. I’ve only skimmed it, but the translation quality seems to be better than Google or DeepL.



And of course I saved the best for last! What seemed like a good idea, then turned into a nightmare, was briefly abandoned, and then resurrected because the guys on Discord wouldn’t let me give up. The artwork got cropped a bit, but man is it sharp! The squares are plenty big to hold tiles, and the whole is just slightly smaller than the official maps so it fits with them in the portfolio case, though I got this printed on neoprene so it could be rolled up instead. From that perspective, it’s actually nicer than the official maps.

So i didn't continue my streak of daily deliveries  :-\

But luckily that didn't mean that there would be no deliveries!
So time to share some goodies i received this week:

A 1st edition C2 Italian base game!  I had the 2nd edition, but this one was still missing :D

Also my Cundco order arrived:


I had to of course get the new Castles and Festival in C3, and some small goodies.
Also the new Taiwan map from Cundco and the reprinted Germany map joined the museum, with a few more maps that will make their way to @Rich_The_Fish

And today i received these:

The original Meeple Flags from @StarFlicker ! Thank you very much for these! I will be sharing a review for these on Instagram early next week!

Join me on the journey through the history and oddities of Carcassonne, on My Instagram

My brother is visiting the UK this week, and of course he came by our place to say hi!
And part of coming by to say hi includes delivering Carcassonne of course!


Bag 1 included a few great things, such as the Czech Castle, and some boxes from Brain Games (my first boxes from them!)


Bag 2 has the rest of the Italian BB7, and a bunch of Dutch C1 expansions :)

Whilst I don't blame the postman, I object to his employers' business practices

Can your postman dig a hole through the Earth to make Cundco shipping cheaper?
