A calm final day without controversy or complaint; with the crowds significantly smaller than yesterday, it was less of a squeeze getting about. I managed to sneak off for a couple of design meetings and, when Arthur arrived, for some lunch and a browsy wander. With his anorak and rucksack, Arthur was equipped for - and happy to - solo exploration which made feel even older still.

The first Foothills of the day: relief! (I squeaked a win by 2 points - 42.5 to 40.5)

From the creators of Ice Cool comes the two-floor Iron Forest; no-one on the Stand actually knew the rules for this prototype!


And now to the Obligatory Haul Shots(TM); see anything you like?

The 'take down' was super-quick and we were able to get the car to the NEC door within 30 mins - apparently the NEC have abandoned last year's appalling 90 minute delay queuing system in favour of the simpler "Just let us get close, at least, and we'll do the bloody rest thanks". Arthur and I trundled the trolley around the scenic Hilton ring-road to Car Park E1 and we were soon a-Motorway, scoffing gummy sweets and listening to Radio One: another notch on the meeple, another cross in the calendar window of conventions: next stop Essen Spiele and I think we're going to need a bigger boat Stand.
