Ah, well in that case you should also consider visiting in late June when LGGC V is going to be.  I'm not likely to make GaryCon I, though I am hoping to attend LGGC again this year.

Alas, I'll be north of the Arctic Circle at that time of the year...

Thanks for the support, Mike, but in a year you'll have 12 of Joe's levels vs. a very-likley 0 of mine:  the level in hand is worth two in the gelatinous cube :D

Perhaps we'll hear something around GaryCon in March; is anyone planning to go?


Hi, Allan!

I plan on going and will see what I can dig up. I might be able to weedle a little something out of the powers that be!  :wink:

Thanks John!  I'm not going to GaryCon for sure (though I'm still debating about DunDraCon), but am planning on LGGC atm.

Be sure to catch up with Rob:  he's planning to drop by on Saturday for GaryCon, apparently :D

I'll see what I can do. I haven't talked to Rob in ages, mostly because the things that have happened. Talked to Eric abouth a month ago.

Would be fun to game with Rob again.

Nice to see another view of an old classic.

Well we are into our 4th session traveling to Castle Zagyg. :)

So far two PC deaths! One from the werewolf (infected PC who will be back to irritate the party) and one to a midnight raid.  They still haven't actually reached the castle!!  They occupied the Ogre's farm and made it into there new base, made friends with the Wood Elves roaming the forest, ran from the flying monkey creatures and are now trying to rid the Dark Chateau of all it's baddies. (Ok so Dark Chateau is really not a part of the boxset but is on the way to it the castle)

So far a pretty good campaign is brewing here, should keep us busy a few months anyway.

A question:  One of my CZ: UW box's underside has a raised relief pattern--a continuous line (1-2mm wide) that loops, twists, and twines along the left side and through part of the illustration ( a vine without leaves is the best description).  I assumed it was to give the map some texture yet now I'm wondering if someone just played with some glue.

Does anyone else have a box with this feature, or is the flat bottomed box the oddity?

Best,

Paul


Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

My boxes are all smooth and flat (top and bottom and sides).

The bottom of my box has the raised relief pattern as well.

Sounds like they ran out of card, or had an incorrect card sheet in the stack when the boxes were made. Pretty cool oddity.

I'll check my copies:  I have some from GenCon 2008, and some from December 2008---perhaps this is a printing distinction?

Apart  from random creases due to crappy construction, my box is flat.

It seems CZ:UW is gonna become much sought after.
What about CZ Yggsburgh?
What about the CZ City Expansions?
Isn't one of the expansions in the CZ:UW boxed sets under a different cover?
Are the other Expansions in the Yggsburgh hardcover, or do they stand alone?
And then there's Dark Chateau. None of the rest seems particularly scarse ATM. I'm affraid I don't know much about TLG's product line outside of the CZ:UW boxed set I have.
