The advent stuff has finally made it across the pond  :). I didn't realize that the Wonders of Humanity tiles don't really fit in any of the expansion boxes nor does it fit in my wooden case.  Anyone have an idea of how to store these outside of using the base game box?

I made a tray for them. There’s a thread in the Crafting forum.

My turn to be suuuuper excited about a package that just came in at the office... I can't wait to get home to properly unwrap it  ;D

Also I'm sure testing it after a painfull work day will be a relief  :@

Do you know what this gem from 2014 is?

Very nice! The Adults of Carcassonne!
The shot glasses are particularly hard to find! Congrats on the arrival!

I was thinking about testing it on a next weekend... But as soon as I got home, we decided to give it a go!
First game just as a test (with empty shots), and second game made us kill half a bottle of gin... Very cool way to play, but can't play many games in a row  ;D

Do you think this version may have some side effects on championship participants? ;)

I was inspired by a photo in the Advent Quiz to pick up this paper model.

Definitely, yes!
Believe it or not, but we seriously talked about what would happen if an Adults of Carcassonne championship took place  :D
There are 2 ways it would impact the game:

1) Players play the usual way, scoring everything possible but the alcohol kicks in sooner or later, impacting their decision and causing mistakes and bad decisions if more than one game takes place the same day.

2) Players play safely, not scoring smaller zones, resulting in lowest end score and a risk of loosing earlier, but stay sober for several games.

We still don't know what the best strategy would be!

Also, this championship should be streamed at any cost. We watched some parts of the 2023 wold championship already, and just imagine it with people getting more and more drunk... Players unleashing their emotions during a game, getting penalty points in case of regurgitation...

Main selection would take place on Friday, so that Saturday games starts with serious hangovers, semi final and final (maybe even quarter?) take place on Sunday, but with stronger alcohol in the shots...


Who's in?  ;D ;D ;D

Otherwise... We both would like to start with a normal championship, are there any way to participate (national or bigger) from Belgium?  :P

I think eventually. There are some things I need to think through.
