Some interesting guesses, but no-one's close yet!

(Except for Jéré)

Hunnymonster is closest though ;)

No pic, but... finally (with some help from kettlefish) got my Cundco order of German Castles, Halflings II, and The School. :) Woo!

Decar, I'm guessing the drink-coasters. :)

I found three of them in Amsterdam, last week, but I didn't buy any.
A mistake?

Today's gift from the postman - I'm pretty stoked to have found a copy of this! It's even emperor-approved!

Available here (Italian version and German version, but there's no text at all in the game, and you can download English rules at BGG):

https://www.uplay.it/gioco_da_tavolo-Finca.html

https://www.uplay.it/gioco_da_tavolo-Finca__EDIZIONE_TEDESCA_.html

This seems to be the only place that has the game these days. Several people on BGG have mentioned getting it from there.

Thanks for the extensive lists!

Crash of games has just announced that they have acquired the rights to an English edition but I'll check to see if any of these options are cost effective.

Cheers!

Yesterday I received the Carcassonne-South Sea-Tile I "won" in the german CarcF Charity auction:

Tile 12


Translation of the german explanation found on the backside:
"This is an original tile of the prototype of Carcassonne South Seas Edition, drawn by the author KJW.
Totally the game Carcassonne South Seas consist of 97 tiles."


Thanks to Udo Schmitz for the fast delivery :(y)

It is beautiful Benny - Mine arrived today- A prototype South Seas Tile, signed and framed!

I think I'll have to paint to walls to make sure it has pride of place:



Thank you to KJW, Udo & Maik for getting this to me!

Carcassonne Central has been given three to auction which ends next week - definitely worth looking at!

Seems to be a while since anyone shared anything.  Today I received an order I placed from a small Bristol based workshop called Cartesian Creations, who I mentioned briefly in my review of Chance And Counters.

I ordered a customer set of brass, iron, aluminium, copper and bronze meeples.  They came with a D20 and a nice little black bag.



They're perhaps in the slim size but they stand up without trouble, I think I might polish them up when I have chance.  I rather like the abbots too.

They werent particularly expensive, so I'm happy to support a small local business; I'll be watching their future metal casting activites closely.

Here's a quick photo of the whole set:

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