  1. I've bought the whole collection twice for practically nothing. It won't cost much to get the whole bundle and it's a great package.
  2. Pm sent. Thanks for being more organised than I was.
  3. I've sent a pm. This is probably a better way to do it. People had a nightmare last week visiting mine.
  4. @moosegrinderBut it's only £16.95, that's practically free and it's got lots of cardboard to punch out so you'll get your money's worth even if you never play it.
  5. Personally I don't view Santorini as a "building" game. I know you are physically building towers but the game doesn't progress and your powers don't build as the game goes on, it's an abstract game with an "easy to learn, hard to master" vibe. It's a good game but my partner, who loves games where you "build" stuff like Carc etc, hates it. She really doesn't get on with abstract games but needs a theme to get into the game. I've posted this in the bargains thread but I'd suggest Nusfjord. It's a game where you carry out actions to gather cards into your "village", these cards give you access to other abilities and options so your choices increase as the games goes on. It's quick and adds some complexities without being overwhelming and is a good intro to worker placement, card powers, combos and shares. Currently £16.95 from Chaos Cards https://www.chaoscards.co.uk/board-games-c800/all-board-games-c550/mayfair-games-nusfjord-p154672/s155980?cid=GBP&gclid=Cj0KCQjwmpb0BRCBARIsAG7y4zag4Ix-x8iYWIDisYKPJfRE6xsi_IpF9nvkCPU594qlQfOc39V24p8aAr3TEALw_wcB If the game bug really bites then we both have a lot of love for Everdell. A beautiful looking game with a great arc, you start off with very few options and struggling for resources but soon your powers and options are growing and you can end turns with resources pouring in and feeling like a little woodland tycoon. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/199792/everdell
  6. Nusfjord is available for cheaps on Chaos Cards again at £16.95. It's one of Uwe Rosenberg's smaller games and I really like this one as a quick, simple engine building game. Well worth picking up at that price. https://www.chaoscards.co.uk/board-games-c800/all-board-games-c550/mayfair-games-nusfjord-p154672/s155980?cid=GBP&gclid=Cj0KCQjwmpb0BRCBARIsAG7y4zag4Ix-x8iYWIDisYKPJfRE6xsi_IpF9nvkCPU594qlQfOc39V24p8aAr3TEALw_wcB
  7. I hadn't even noticed that. Thank you for spotting it and letting me know. I can't even find the competition results! Where have they hidden it? Found it. This is very exciting. The only thing better than a new board game is a new board game you didn't have to pay for.
  8. I'm still staying open till the shop shuts. Last call.
  9. It's calming down now, all quiet at the minute. Anyone still needing to get in?
  10. I think so. I'm wearing a bandana headgear thing now. It was left by my DIY table. Thank you.
  11. Next time we should issue virtual tickets and people wait till their number is called.
  12. It does seem ludicrously slow for people doing things. I can leave it open till 10 when the shop shuts so hopefully that gives everyone a chance to get in. I've found myself teleported back to the airport on a few occasions.
  13. I've got cherries, pears, peaches, apples and coconuts. Would be happy to get any others.
  14. I thought it had gone quiet. Didn't realise the code had stopped working. It's rush hour again.
  15. Reopened. Generated a new code. 88CCB The other code was correct so not sure why it stopped working.
