Many many thanks to Carl Hilinski for this masterpiece. Can't wait for it to arrive!

May I present to you, Catfish Pie:

Aaaah, yours must be from the same batch as mine (which is called Carefree). I just got it today and it's gorgeous.

Right now I'm killing time until the family is ready to give it it's inaugural play (for which I must wait for some crappy TV show to end. How lame is that?). Good to see that my board's brother is going to as enthusiastic an owner as mine did. Enjoy!

Nice, congrats on Carefree! I am still waiting for mine to arrive, but already have several game sessions lined up. One Canadian friend is completely floored that I knew about the game, and has never seen such a fine board. She can't wait to come over. My regular game group (euros mostly), is completely bewildered and can't wait to try it out.

Nice.

I have one on the way, too!

Mine's a Stan board, though.

That's a beautiful design.

If I decided to order one, would I need to put a down payment on it, or all up front, or ???

You pay before shipping, after seeing an image of the board for approval, no down payment. I paid a little early, as I asked for some changes in the middle of the process. Carl was incredibly accommodating and patient with my requests. Very highly recommended experience if it's in your budget.

Thanks!

I REALLY like the 'clean' look of the boards made of maple. I had to have one.

Very nice. I just got mine about a week ago. It's "Companion". Stan and Carl make some awesome boards. Couldn't be happier.



Already logged 40+ games myself. What an absolute blast, everyone that's played it has really enjoyed it.

Those are all beautiful boards (particularly catfish pie!). How long did it take for them to arrive after placing your order?

About 4 weeks. Mine took 6 because I asked for revisions on some of the stains he originally used. Carl did this without batting an eye. Great service!

Picked "Companion" off the for sale page on a Friday night I think. I had Carl change out the middle stone to a different color. My payment went through that weekend, the board was at my house on thursday or friday of the following week. (Can't remember exactly, but it was pretty quick.)

I think I only live a state or two away though.

Why are all you guys playing the game on the ground?
Don't you have any tables?

I was admiring "Revenge" earlier today. Had I planned on hanging mine in my basement and not my kitchen, I would have gone that route. Love the all black with the white lines and red 20 hole.

Yeah, I was tempted by Revenge. It certainly is one of the coolest looking boards.

Here's mine. It is a variant of a famous board.

Aren't you guys amazed how shiny the board is in real life compared to the picture?

And Tim that is quite an impressive amount of plays in such short time.
Do you count the difference in points scored each round when playing to a 100?

Most of us are actually posting pix that were taken by one of the Hilinskis themselves. If you take a look at the url of the picture that I posted above for Dervish, you will notice that it actually points at hilinski.net. In other words, I didn't take that photo and it has not been uploaded to BGG. It is hosted on another site (the board manufacturer's).

That being said, I don't think they actually took a photo of it sitting on the ground. Based on the depth perception going on in the photo, it looks to me like they set it on a small table, which is then hidden in the photo due to the angle of perspective of the shot. I would guess that at some point between finishing the board and packing it up, they just took it outside (where there tends to be a lot more light) and took a photo for the website and didn't bother to set it up in an action location just set it up with a good angle to take the shot while standing without having to climb on anything.

Mystery solved.

Btw, I can confirm that the board in the picture taken by a Hilinski above is in fact the exact one-of-a-kind board named Dervish, which now hangs in my library.

Those are nice looking. I want one! I thought, "Hey I can build one of these." Went to their how-we-build section on their website... Yeah I don't know about it now... Lots of effort put into those boards!

If I tried to make one it would look like ash (because I'd be so frustrated I'd set it on fire.) I put some games up in a Geeklist auction to raise the money to buy one.
