Fair is Over

I'm sitting here in Carey's bathroom while Carey, Linda, Lorna, and Erik work on packing our various leftovers (not many!) and acquisitions into our return luggage. It might all fit.

I want to say thank you to our booth helpers this year: Lorna, Jim, Marty, Erik, Tim, Carrie, Ben - thank you for your support of Sunriver Games and for donating your time and energy to making it another successful year. We had a great celebration dinner at the Ystra tonight and the wine, food, and Narnia improv by Erik were memorable.

I got in a turn of Pillars of the Earth (Die Saulen der Erde) when Jim had to leave the game early to meet up with Ben. This is a good game and I'm sorry I missed out on getting it (prices were going up during the day as the game was in short supply), but no fear - looks like Mayfair will have an English version early 2007. This is the game to play if you want a shorter version of Caylus with an even stronger graphical design.

I'll do a more in-depth post-Essen report once I return where I can include some photos.
