I want some animeeples (please no comments on buying plastic toys instead). I can offer the following games and/or some cash. Thanks!
I dont want this game sitting in my closet til christmas (when animeeples become available). My family needs dumb things like this to entice them. I will also send my cubes.

Goa
Puerto Rico w/ expansion
Ticket to Ride the card game
Yinsh
Aquadukt
LunarRails (in shrink)
Thunder at the crossroads
Saint Petersburg

Desperation is a sad thing.shake

They are all on the table, and we can make a deal to combine some, or I can give a combo of cash and a game or two.

I know you didn't want the comments but...
I think the Target plastic animeeples look better than the real thing (if you can handle plastic). And I'm not just saying that because I have two sets that I'll trade for Goa or Yinsh. ninja They're more realistic than the wooden animeeples and are the perfect size.

Re: Animeeple beggar...any takers?
this is poorly translated from the lookout games website

Quote:
The Animeeples: many small animals in the bag. Approximately 54. Enough sheep, wild pigs and cattle anyhow, in order to have to play no more with Würfelchen Agricola. The word is by the way a composition from “Animal” for animal and “Meeple”, the English name for Pöppel.
Anyhow they were not completely cheap in the production, therefore the bag costs 6 euros. In stamps. Plus postage.


I can't read a word of German so I used Babelfish and this is what I got.

So for 6 Euros you can get the animeeples granted shipping may cost you 20 - 30 dollars.

Tonight, on Action News 6: Roving gangs of animeeple beggars terrorize the downtown area and parts of Mt. Prospect, Illinois.

CUT TO: On-Street Interview
CAPTION: Ben Lott, Animeeple Beggar
BEN: Some yuppie handed me a bunch of Carcassonne meeples today. (pause) This city is so cruel.

CUT TO: Office Interview
CAPTION: Dr. David Matchen, Agricologist
DAVID: It's a very interesting sociological development, this sort of existential zugzwang that manifests itself as an impulsive desire to collect little wooden animals. Some researchers have posited that this is just the natural devolution of humanity back to its hunter-gatherer roots, a need to jettison the constant litany of cell-phone calls, IM's, spam, and adsense ads on Boardgamegeek.com.
INTERVIEWER: What's that?
DAVID: It's a website.
INTERVIEWER: What's on it?
DAVID: Board games.
INTERVIEWER: (pause) Like Monopoly?

CUT TO: On-Street Interview
CAPTION: Lt. Robert Wesley, Seattle P.D.
ROBERT: robot My 'men' are working 'double'-shifts in an effort to 'cow' these animeepling ne'er-do-wells into submission!zombie

CUT TO: Office Interview
DAVID: There are others who find this sort of "hoarding" behavior a long-suppressed need in the human psyche, like beer, or watching reruns of "Charles in Charge." It is part of the ur-psychological underpinnings of the human condition. Between you and me, though, it's probably Bush's fault.

Back to you, Jackie.

Now let's not make this Zev's fault... he should be looking at it as new market opportunity, if anything, given the demand it's caused...

Hey, we need some animeeple smileys. Zoiks, another market.

I was kinda sympathetic to your cause, until this swipe.

Yeah, imagine if one of the presidential candidates offered free animeeples to everyone if they were elected. Can you say stampede.
