(please don't ask why I ended up with so many copies of this, it's a long story...)

Arn't we all here to hear long stories ;-)

It's a sad tale of love, loss, delayed orders, replacement orders, further delays, and replacement replacement orders. There's an amazing twist at the end though!

Please refer to my autobiography - "Dan: The Man Who Accidentally Ordered Eight Copies of Carcassonne for 2" - for further details...

I bought some more wooden figures at the Spiel 2017 in Essen.
The photos shows the new figures and some are from the years before.

The wooden pieces are from Spielmaterial.de and other companies who produce such nice figures.

Great to see all those wooden pieces from Spiele Material, I enjoyed visiting their stall last year  :(y).

Dan:  Have you worked out how many 'Carcassonne for 2' is too many 'Carcassonnes for 2' ?

AT LAST!! 

I have been waiting for these for nearly 2 years!

I have just had a solo game of 'Of Dungeons Deep' and it seems fun but I am sure I was doing something wrong as it was too easy to win!

I can't wait to play all of them with the family.

Caved and added Sagrada to the library! Looks like a good family weight game that has received good reviews from here and otherwise. These light games tends to get the most play time in our house.

Also look forward to Codenames Duet and bought the 7 Wonders anniversary pack, more for the completionist in me!

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

My Duchess gaming table finally arrived.  The kickstarter delivery date was supposed to be in February.   :o   One of the underside support boards was broken and there was a lot of cosmetic damage to the topper.  They said they would eventually send out replacements.

The rules can be found online, there are official variants to them as well.
The top 2 tiles and meeple are the school expansion. I had a spare so I put that in as well. It's a nice little extra expansion. Enjoy!

Received my latest Cundco order. Very impressed with the speed of the delivery, especially after Essen.

Really, most excited for the Stone Age mini expansion!

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