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:

News and Events / Re: Spiel ‘22 tile at Cundco this Friday (the 18th)?

It seems like I was limited to 5 items to keep the shipping to North America reasonable.  I can't wait to try the Bets and throw the Ukraine tile in the game.

The map isn't happening for me.  I'll probably bite the bullet for the Bets and the Ukraine tile if it is still available during the advent promotion.

The US maps showed up in Boardgame Geek's market, so maybe the Ukraine one will too.

If I can't buy a Ukraine or Spiel tile, I am going to hold you guys personally responsible  >:(

All jokes aside, it looks like a good time was had by all.   One day I will make it to Spiel, but I imagine I would be overwhelmed.  The Carcassonne temporary tattoos are an amazing idea!   :yellow-meeple:

I didn't know that.

To be honest, when I first saw the tile I thought it was a sled carrying rocks.  I didn't know it was a real building until I read about it.

Old art = darmstadtium

New art = the sign post tile with the bridge over the city.  All the sign posts tiles are ugly.

Good write up!

I agree, but I would have given the aesthetics a lower score.  Those arrows are UGLY!

We have played twice with it and on a shared road we were able to get all 3 sign posts once.  I think twice one of us was able to get 2 different posts.  Mainly we used the tiles to close off other features and the signs were frequently not pointed the correct way.

Neither the wife or I liked it enough to include it frequently.  At the same time we didn't dislike it either. 

Ferries, Inns, and bridges are a lot more fun in my opinion.

If I didn't already have it, I would buy.  I hope someone else can complete their collection.

Just spent €215 on Friday pledging for Tang Gardens Complete set. Never played the game but it looks gorgeous and sounds fairly straightforward to learn.

Me too 8)

I may be thrown into the tower for laughing at the mayor's baggy pants.   Also...je ne parle pas français

Buy Carcassonne: Safari, of course!

That is what my wife said.  I think we have too many flavors of Carcassonne already.

My stuff made it across the pond.  Not sure what I will do with the extra Spiel Doch tiles.

The Deutsche Post has always been good to me.  The only problems I have had are from Cundco themselves giving me the wrong order. 

My yearly Cundco order reminds me that I know nothing about how VAT taxes work.  I research it, get confused, and look forward to repeating next year.  I don't think I am supposed to pay it because it is technically an export, but whatever.
