Speaking of legal print… is it possible to print a Spiel 2015 Tile? Where, in case (just for personal use, of course).

That is absolutely right, not only proven by a double postman visit today!

First, my local postman stopped by to bring this:

The Falcon expansion for The Castle, as made by Print&Play games in the US. I've given the gate pieces a try, which seem to fit ok, some tighter than others, but I'm sure it will work fine in a game. Will need to play this one soon!

And then not long after, another postman dropped this box at my doorstep:


I've known of this one for a while, but never saw it for sale anywhere. So I messaged a random person on BGG who had it, asking them if they would be open to 'donate' it to the museum, and they agreed! Very quick delivery from Finland, and here it is!
I had this version of the expansion and isn’t good enough… the edition needs more quality but better have it than not :)
I can see your japanese strategy book too hahahaha in a corner of the picture. I have it too emoji code16]

You could print one yourself for your own personal use, but no one else can print one for you.

Nothing from Cundco this week. :'( Of the three open orders that I have with them, the next one contains the things I'm waiting for before I consolidate my C2 collection into its storage case. Maybe next week they will come.

No Cundco order here today, but i did get a parcel dropped off



For some reason i don't have many German C2 base games, actually I only had 1, which was Carc15. So when i saw this one, i went for it even though i wasn't sure if it would be a 2014 or 2019 box art.
It turned out the be the latter, but that's all good. And a few expansions because why not :D

My postman yesterday completed my collection of C2 miniexpansions by delivering Messages and Crop circles that I so far had only in C1 art. Even more happy I was for my Spiel18 tile that completed my 17-21 sequence of Spiel tiles. I doubt I will get any of the missing 14, 15, 16 tiles any time soon as they now reach exorbitant prices.

Small orders from PrintPlayGames and TheGameCrafter arrived today.

Two purple Catan cities, one for my C1 collection and the other for my C2 collection, to track the size of the purple player's largest city.
Two green discs for my Tunnel expansion upgrade.
18 red discs for my Plague expansion upgrade.
1 yellow mini meeple for my C2 travel set.



Time to apply stickers! The "easy peel" stickers are not actually easy to peel, but I found a good way to get them off the sheet without damaging the edges.



Let's bring back the wooden bits from the previous shipments. It was at this point that I realized I had forgotten to order gray discs, so I need to do that now. So the Tunnel expansion is not complete yet, but the Plague expansion is finally done!

They look great! I love the look of the plague tokens; they look like proper upgrades to the normal tokens!

Does anyone else get really bent up orders from Cundco? Two out of my four orders have been so bent up that the tiles are all crooked and out of shape. Got the Count Tableau and that has a big crease down the middle of it. Getting a bit disappointing as I get so excited about these expansions coming and then they have to spend a week between a clamp trying to get them back into shape. Just wondering if many others have this same issue? My love of the postman has lessened a little of late! Lol.

I think it's probably your local mail service that is bending them.  I have made a lot of orders from Cundco and have never had a single problem with the products being damaged.
