It sounds like this was handed out as a (nearly) freebe at some con somewhere.

Does anyone know where I can find one?

I don't expect to get to any game cons anytime soon. If you have a Diamont Joe and don't expect to use it, could you drop it in the mail for me? I'd be happy to send a couple bucks off to my (or your) favorite charity.

Thanks for your help.

If you don't play with the max number of players you can use one of the canoes not in use.

Another option is to order a wooden boat from:

And finally you can contact Zoch. If they don't have any unpainted spares you can buy a normal canoe and paint it.

Diamond Joe is a FREE give away for the Niagra game, but you must be at the location where its being given away to get it for free.

I have contacted the German publisher, and they directed me at a person who I am guessing works with Rio Grande in the USA.

For a donation of $5, they will send you a Diamond Joe expansion.

I recommend contacting this person by email and see if they still have them in stock.

If that does not work out, then you can try contacting the manufacturer in Germany, but you will need to know German for that, I think.

You can just download the rules online, and use the Life Preserver as Diamond Joe. The gem fits nicely. Just find another item to mark the first player each round.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I ordered the expansion and got it the other day... its a nice addition. THeres something to be said about using the correct game pieces for the correct reasons...

I don't know what the $5 went to, but I am happy with my purchase.

I just submitted my order by PayPaling $5 to cafejay@aol.com and putting diamond Joe expansion in headline and just received a response that it will ship shortly...so they are still out there. I actually just picked up Niagara this past weekend, only played it once, but it's got great mechanics with the flow of the river.

If anyone is planning on getting the base game Niagara, consider buying it from PlayMe.de, as they are bundling it with the Diamond Joe expansion.
http://playme.de/NIAGARA-mit-Erweiterung-DIAMANTEN-JOE_1

It's the German version, but the playing material isn't language dependant and the rules come in English and French too, so this means only the box is German. laugh

This still works, as of 10/20/2012.

I followed the instructions and used Paypal to send $5 to cafejay early in the week. The next day I received an e-mail saying that my package should arrive in about 10 days. On Saturday of the same week it showed up.

How awesome is it that something like this little expansion is still easily (and cheaply) available six years after the game was released?? Pretty awesome.
