If you are a facts oriented person (which if I broadcast my German and boardgaming stereotypes I will assume that you are) I will highlight them in the text...if you only read that, then my message will still get across!

Facts:
1. En route to India (from Canada) I have been diverted to Amsterdam due to snow in Frankfurt. We anticipate to arrive back in Frankfurt late this afternoon or early evening. I have an unexpected night in Frankfurt.

2. I'm an eternal optimist. So, I'm pumped about getting the opportunity to spend a night in the Mecca of board gaming....Germany! But, where in Frankfurt can I find a games store? That will be open later (so I can get there)? And will they have my grail game?

3. Anyone in Frankfurt that can help?! I've been told that I'm normal...by 4 out of 5 people...I won't bite!

4. Feel free to add similar stories of desperation that you endured to get your grail game (with good or bad ending...as this ending is still uncertain!)

EDIT: Now staying in Amsterdam tonight. Anyone in Amsterdam that can help??!!

This is it. This is the holy grail. If you are wondering why - go watch Richard Ham's walk through video of it and try to stop yourself from asking me to pick you up a copy too!

Could someone who is not wifi limited (like me right now) please include the link to his video? That would be awesome!

Well...today has been one of great uncertainty...lets see what happens!

Well, I did not manage to find a copy of Yedo, but I did manage to get to The Gamekeeper where I was greeted by the very friendly Conrad:

who was kind enough to keep the store open a little longer to let me browse (and buy!)

Terra Mystica is now mine. I feel good about this whole travel detour! Anyone in calgary want to play/teach this one?!

And a special shout out to Thomas who did everything in his power to try and make this pipe dream come true!

Any person from Belgium travelling to Calgary soon and want to carry something about the size of a Yedo game?!

I, of course, also saw this as a perfect opportunity to get something for the kids too! All, in all, this has been a great day!



I love making lemonade out of lemons!
