Carpe Astra On Its Way

Carpe Astra was assembled in Germany on Saturday, and will be shipping from the manufacturer's warehouse today. I hope to receive it on Friday, when I can, all being well, start sending out the pre-orders.

I'm off for a couple of days tomorrow, which looks very well timed now, as I'll be back just in time to receive the games. Of course it's been ages since I had some time completely off, and surprise, surprise, this time will be no different (don't tell The Wife!) - I'll take Codename: Jorvik with me and might do some playtesting if the opportunity arises. Talking of Jorvik, I tried the new version out on one of my playtesters at Beyond Monopoly! on Saturday. Feedback was generally good, though I've only played this version a few times, so it'll need a lot more testing and tweaking before I'm happy with it.

I've had a quiet couple of weeks post Essen, with most of my suppliers having plenty of stock at the moment, but Carpe Astra will make next week very busy again. Several suppliers are ordering It's Alive! (or re-ordering it) at the same time as Carpe Astra, so that will make it even busier. I foresee a few trips to the warehouse on the horizon...

w00t!

Hmmm... you're gonna want some money off me now, aren't you? :)

Yup. You can pay me when I come up to Newcastle if you like. For you there's a special rate: £15,000. That should make things a bit more comfortable in Reiver Towers. I'm thinking gold-plated door handles... And The Wife still wants her Porsche.

Cheers,

Jack

Gah! Is it too late to cancel? ;)

Jack said...

Yup. I signed a contract in your blood last time you came to stay.

Cheers,

Porch, Jack, she asked for a porch.
