Check out the "Caylus Board Game" title of these two ebay items by this seller. Of course, the items have nothing to do with Caylus, but the seller is obviously aware of all the Caylus hype. Clever? Or Shameful?

Really!? I reported the seller to ebay for keyword spamming, which is a BIG NO-NO for ebay sellers. Evidently he also used El Grande to sell his/her meeple decals. He used Carcassonne too, which was okay.

Man, and I'd thought I'd found a Caylus game on ebay for sale. cry

Why would he/she use the Caylus or El Grande names to try and sell custom meeple decals? I mean, if I'm looking to buy El Grande or Caylus on eBay, I'm not going to buy homemade Carcassonne meeple decals... (Especially if the person in question is simply trying to attract attention... I wouldn't buy the decals even if I decided I wanted them just to spite the seller in question!) sauron

... or is that just me?
