Anybody going to Essen this year?




Because I need a mule.

Chili Games only sells direct so the postage makes it cost-prohibitive.

And the mule metaphor is especially apt because the game weighs a friggin' ton.

If I were going -- which I am not -- but if I were -- I would totally exceed the weight limit on my suitcase and bring you back the game.

And rumor has it that Agricola is shipping any day now. We shall see if that is true.

Its possible I will be going. I have to line up some official business over there around the same time, so it will probably work. Based on my experience last year, I just want to be there Wednesday (unofficially, during the pre-show set up when the best under-the-table deals are available) and Thursday the first day of the show.

Muling... maybe, though its a serious pain hauling extra stuff through plains, trains, and automobiles.

Plus that full-body-cavity Customs search. We can't be having anyone trying to hide "Bang: The Bullet" like last time.

I narrowly avoided the German canine cavity search due to the Bang shell last year. Due to baggage handlers, Galaxy Truckers looks its been dropped off a few trucks. Still, Jon got his Uzi, and Rob got his Leonardo expansion chit. Oh, and I grabbed quite a few Zooloretto polar bears. Small con-exclusive promos are easy.

I'm still pretty tentative at this point, but its looking favorable, as I'll be managing a satellite office near-by that needs periodic looking in on.

Argh! My fresh out of shrink EE map is damaged. Feverishly typing e-mail to GMT....

Kingsport is here! Kingsport is here!

By the way, the phrase you are looking for is: Werden Sie mein Maultier?. At least, according to google.
