King Louis XIV inspects Versaille

When I saw Versailles presentation at Essen 2014 I already knew that I must play this game.
Beautiful artworks on big solid board and clever unique for me mechanism. I'm not a good reviewer especially with my caveman's english. So please just look at 5 player setup (which is properly fake setup, I play on a bigger table but here I have better light for make a pictures :) ) and my clay replacement for wodden pieces. 

So what we have here:

  • 45 mepples (in 5 colours)
  • 5 activation tokens (guys with tricorns)
  • 20 bags of gold
  • 30 wooden logs 
  • 30 marbles
  • 1 his majesty Louis XIV

Little aliens

Here are the latest sculptures from friend of mine. Castings are made of resin, aliens are hand painted. I hope that I will learn something useful from him :). As soon as I take something from his workshop I will show you pictures.
