Oops, I've been quite remiss in following the opening of my Brettspiel Adventskalender 2018; given that enough time has passed for revelation of over half the box-contents, here's a breakdown of the jeux-sm this cardboard spunktrumpet has spurted over our gamer bellies thus far:
Dec 01: Six tiles that score between 7 and 15 points for something to do with a Feld game; it could be any of them that has a Roman theme because one piece of art looks like a toga. But it might be a roll of fabric. And there's a rat too. And a canoe (or is that a gondola)?
Dec 02: A Dixit card that is eerily like the dream I had last weekend after finishing the old Brie at the back of the fridge.
Dec 03: A Power Station for Power Grid - "Chernobyl (Min cost: 44 Elektro)" (powers all your cities once, for one NUCLEAR, then removes the current map board from the game)
Dec 04: "Mound of Dogshit hidden under leaves" 'T'-tile for Spring Meadow
Dec 05: An amusing Santa-related pun tile which is printed without any rules due to a packing error.
Dec 06: A room tile for Castles of Mad King Ludwig that also doubles as a castle tile for The Castles of Burgundy and a bonus token in the as-yet-unreleased The Castles of Mad King Dombuilder
Dec 07: A chai tea tea-bag with the Alubari: A Nice Cup of Tea logo on.
Dec 08: 'Whore-Force Men' promo for KeyForge: Call of the Archons.
Dec 09: Rotten Sheep Carcass, Lonely Shepherd's 'Staff', EU Subsidy and Tsunami of Refuse and Sewage tiles for Lowlands.
Dec 10: Level 3 'Old One' tile for AuZtralia R'lyeh Chopper (when revealed, draw a movement card for each revealed Old One)
Dec 11: Underwater Cities: Cheese Submarine.
Dec 12: Privatization Patient Card for Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr (end the game immediately; further games of Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr shall be charged out at a variable fee 'per unit of time')
There you have it; the next twelve will follow later in the month...no sneak-peeking in advance, now!
