News: Back from Essen and Urland

Here, we are, we had a great week in Essen. First good news
were Tuesday when we started building our booth and then 
our order of Urland arrived. Next incredible good day was
Thursday, wenn we realized after a few hours that we didn't
have enough games. Even though another order of games arrived
on Saturday, we ran out of games Saturday 2 pm. Overall we
were very pleased. Monday after the fair we relaxed and had
a nice break at our friends house with more Friends joining,
e.g. Alan Ernstein and his wife.

Some pictures, impressions and links can be found on


Some discussions about Urland, the role of the Dummy (Kiebitz)
the strength of certain genes and the overall balance of the
game seem to start here and there on the net. Some links
can be found under




Currently we are still busy shipping all the orders.


News: Urland in Wiener Spielemischung (Vienna Games Mix)

Urland was included in the top 99 recommended games of the

Reminder: Old links

Hi, it is now over a year that we moved from my former university
accounts to the doris-frank.de domain with a real provider. According
to Altavista and Google link searches there are still plenty of links
to my old (now defunc) pages. We generally appreciate being linked,
but links are more helpful if they work. So if you maintain a site or
know someone who maintains a site or you know someone who ... please
would you help us getting that link updated?

Thank you!

You should also note that our old e-mail dorisnfrank@bigfoot.com is
now considered deprecated, it should be still working but


is the better choice to contact us!
