This year I couldn't make it to the fair. This has to do mostly with the fact that my sons birthday is on the 20th and he still is too little to come and also with the fact that Portugal is under severe economic constraints and money is on the short side nowadays... soblue It is a pity to me because I always have a great time on the the small holidays that Essen represents and get to hang with my gamer friends.

Still, being a collector as I am, I cannot stand to see great games coming out and not getting some. So, I nagged some guys to get me some games...

Space theme, negotiation, limited print run and a change to have it signed: count me in!

Thanks Paulo!

Also Ted signed the copy!

This one came along with Suburbia, but it does occupy space!

Thanks Paulo!

Considering the fuss around Key Market last year, I'd better get my hands on this before it was too late.

As an extra (an important one, imo) I got it autographed.

Thanks Tiago!

Stefano (the designer) was kind enough to offer me a signed copy, as I translated the rules to Portuguese.

Thank you, once more Tiago!

How does one resist to the fact that it came cheaper and with extra goodies if pre-ordered: certainly not me!

Thank you Pedro

The same happened to Briefcase. In fact the bundle came cheaper.

Thank you once more, Pedro.

I like Carson City, but what really got me was the price tag of the game and expansion all together: 30€

And it's the Master Print version...

Thanks Pedro

I still don't know what's the size of the box, but I imagine it didn't fit inside the main game...

Thanks, Pedro

Here is a second copy of the game... This one was a bit unexpected, due to some communications failure from me!... Still, a safe sale afterwards...

Thank you Vital!

I suppose I'll add this one to the guy who buys Suburbia from me...

Thank you Vital!
