9th March 02   Kanaloa - second issue

    Because of the first 200 Kanaloa games are sold out in February (when a great review in counter magazine was published) we decided to make 100 more. They'll be available before april 02.

    (Please notice: we published the number of Kanaloa games we made, but we didn't say that we limited it to 200. This rumor bases in misinterpretations of our public statement by a few (in october 2001 very busy) webmasters and is not true. Sorry, we want that players buy Kanaloa because they like it, not because it's rarely.)
9th March 02   EURO: games cheaper, but shipping ...

    By changing the prices from DM into Euro we reduced them a little bit for all our games: -0,03 Euro (Nanuuk!) to -1,45 Euro (Autoscooter).

    Unfortunately the Deutsche Post AG changed the conditions of their FREEWAY parcels so that the shipping costs for international orders increased to 15,- Euro (Europe) and 27,- Euro (World).

 Visit from Japan

In February 2000 the japanese gamer Toyohiro Wabuchi was invited by AZA-Spiele to join their Turfmaster- tournament. One day Toyo visited Bambus Spieleverlag in Berlin.
Toyohiro Wabuchi and Günter Cornett at Brandenburger Tor So we meet us at Zoologischer Garten, he got a view of Berlin and showed me the card game Miura which he brought to me from Japan.

Toyo is the nice guy who introduced our Flaschenteufel card game (from USA) to Tokyo. In 1998 Toyo mailed me fotos of a very surprising Flaschenteufel- construction. "I'd like not to cut the hexagon, ..." he told me by mail. See the construction- fotos!
