Even the 5p games are usually very playable as 4p; and 4p games are good for Retreat due to timewise.

Bumping this thread up to buzz about the Retreat. Here's the booty list from our Essen trip. Obviously it won't be all new Essen games as we'll mix it up with some recent releases. Will be having preview of the Essen new games @ OTK next few Fridays. Feel free to drop by and learn the new Essen games to help you challenge for the summit!

Some mixed news on Madeira.



 



Hello,


thanks again for your preorder of Madeira.


We could start the shipment early next week and we would need the following information:


 


  1. PAYPAL: please send us the transaction number of the paypal payment

  2.    
  3. PHONE NUMBER: please send us a phone number that we can write on the package

Meanwhile, please note that many units of the first batch we received have some small issues regarding the cutting of the punched board.


As you can see in the attachment, some tiles would need to be carefully removed from the punched board using a cutter in order to avoid the paper to shred.


We are really sorry for the inconvenience, we already talked to the printer and they said they will fix the problem starting from the next batch.


We therefore would like to know if you prefer the game to be shipped next week anyway or if you would prefer to wait until the next batch arrive (probably end of November).


In case you would like the game to be shipped next week, please note we could not bear the shipping costs for sending replacements for damages related to this issue.


Looking forward to hear from you


Best regards

Veronica/WYG

ya no wor. I reckon you are carrying everything of yours back so only hand-carry what's essential or games you didn't get (since we've limited capacity anyway) and shipped the rest out.

I replied for MADEIRA to be sent now (think the cutting is manageable) so kaz, you may opt for the 2nd batch. Hopefully send-now means the game should arrive for this Retreat. [party]

If you are preparing for your packing list, you should include as well:


 


1. Basic toiletries*


2. Mosquito repellent (especially for those who are keen to join late night gaming on Day One


 


* Bath towel will be provided by the orchard village


** Water tumbler might not be necessary because we will provide a bottle water for each and there is water cooler in the gaming area, where you can refill your water bottle there.


 


Will post up the details of the programme itinerary on FB soon..

Does that mean there is no hall for late night gaming? Must be outdoor gaming ah? :P

No. Just afraid of humidity (unless this is a cool/cold place?) and mossies.
