UKGE article about Carcassonne (Museum)
« on: November 24, 2022, 08:44:48 AM »
At Essen, thanks to introductions by @Decar and @danisthirty , I met James from the UKGE.
They organise the largest hobby games convention in the UK, and this is also where the UK championships for Carcassonne are held.

I was contacted by them recently, as they remembered our chat and still had thei Carcassonne Museum membership card (I knew they came in handy!)

They have now done an article about the Carcassonne Museum on their website, you can find it here:

Wouldn't it be the special limited edition of 2018 which sits above the wheel of fortune on the photo of the article ?

Great bit of writing @Willem ! +1 merit for your efforts.

I always enjoy reading about the museum, and the fact that you've been able to share it with a potentially huge audience is worth celebrating! :) :(y)

Congratulations Willem!

I believe I bought my copy of Wheel of Fortune from him, so technically I have a museum piece in my home.   :yellow-meeple:
