That is a lot of games! If I asked for all those I'd have to ask for a bigger house to put them all in too! :)

Christmas is coming, and the goose is getting fat indeed!  My birthday is also two weeks before Christmas.  I do the Christmas/gift shopping for our family, especially after my wife's first birthday gift to me was soap...  :o

I got a little silly with my game purchases this month, all of which are Christmas gifts for one person or another in my immediate family (and some for myself!).  The list includes:

Twilight Struggle, The Grizzled, Between Two Cities, Machi Koro Deluxe, Ticket to Ride Map Collection #5 (which on the PA side of the map is the little town of 3000 people that I grew up in; very exciting!), 6 Nimmt, Codenames, Dixit: Memories, Sushi Go, Loopin' Chewie, Ghost Blaster, Animal Upon Animal, Zooloretto, Pie Face, and also several little expansions or promos for several different games from BGG and Cundco.  Some of these games have arrived already.  I expect the rest to arrive soon.  I also expect (through very careful and strategically limited Christmas wishlists) to possibly get Tzolk'in and Istanbul before the season is over.  I fully admit that I am more excited about all these games than I should be. 

I also won Sheriff of Nottingham in a raffle at game night tonight.   :blue-meeple:

Glad to see I'm not the only one riding the crazy train when ordering.  :D

Very excited about today's delivery!

Sweet. So 7 Wonders is a good game? I saw Dan mentioned it below as well. I've been seeing it in the store and was pondering if to buy or not. I got that promo expansion (for 7 Wonders), figure I make use of it to get the base game and have a go at it.

A little update what the postman has been up to!



*Star Wars is from the local store.





I can't believe The City popped up in a store like that. It's not the Wooden Box version, though.

From a store here in Sweden. Popped up from nowhere figure I order it. It's a good chance I'll be selling it again for anyone interested. I'll update my sale thread with the info in a bit.

Had my cundco order arrive today, as well as a special package from Mitchmedia



That's a full set of phantoms (pink/red/orange/yellow/green/blue/purple/brown/white/grey/black), a one-tile city (with Russian counterpart for comparison - spot the difference), and a lone FRRR which I've signed and plan to send off to Dan by the end of the week.

Great Stuff, ooh_jim! Unfortunately I can't find out which of these cities is the russian one. BTW: Could you take another/better photo of the phantom meeples? They look great!

Here you go!

Orange & Brown


These five are all similar hues. From left to right, I'm using them as:
  • Pink - Notably clearer than the white, but certainly the pinkest of the bunch.
  • Purple - The grey follower from The Phantoms.
  • White - Not totally clear. Hopefully this means that if I ever get my hands one of those clear followers that crop up every now and then, I'll be able to use it with the unpainted set.
  • Grey - Only slightly darker than the white; still kinda purple.
  • Black - A deep indigo.

Oh - and the Russian tile is missing a city on the top edge.

Wow, I didn't notice the missing city! So, the German city tile isn't the original one.  :@
