Welcome...to my Shed!
Microbadge: I love Europe!Microbadge: 5 Games for Doomsday fanMicrobadge: Talk Talk fanMicrobadge: Citizenship Recognition - Level VI -  Is six any more shiny? ... Well, it's one shinier isn't it? ... Okay, why don't you just make five a bit more shiny and then that would be the most shiny? ... Because these go to six.Microbadge: Pun microbadges are the wurst!

I sort-of (as in 'completely') got distracted mid-December and tailed off (as in 'totally stopped') with the Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016 reveal/review/commentary bizniz. However, as I was clearing away the cardboard detritus of th'aforementioned festive, fenestration-based fun-baggery this morning, I remembered that I had a few unpublished photos from that fallow period and thought it best to post 'em up regardless.

My therapist* says that 'closure' is very important in this instance:

Amidst all those mini-expansions and promo cards, there was a whole, actual game!

Mmmmm! Extra mature! Delicious, if a little 'bouncy' due to the warmth of the house.

Wow! An entire PitchCar expansion; they're really clever with the packaging at Ludofact, aren't they?!

If I didn't know any better, I'd think they designed the Kalendar just for little ole me! 45 minutes of chuffing, puffing and squealing...and a vinyl LP of train noises too!

Now THIS was brilliant: an entire miniaturised Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016 that also had, in the equivalent window, an even MORE miniaturised Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016 which, yes!, had one of it's own! I couldn't check THAT one because I dropped it on the carpet and it disappeared in to the weave.

What a treat, eh? I think you'd better put your pre-order for the 2017 edition double-quick (and I hear Stefan Feld is interested in secreting himself in window 12)!
