We played a streak of awesome games today, at @merlinsbeard42, on their bi-monthly epic game day. A hilariously bad scoring game of Kokoro: Avenue of the Kodama was followed by a desparate struggle for survival in Dominant Species. We then played the Gallica map of Concordia for the first time, and then took Ganz Schön Clever for a three-player spin. We topped the night off with the cleverly designed Herbaceous, and ended it all with a rousing game of Hansa Teutonica. An epic game day indeed. 😊

This is the beginning of our trip around Hannover. There are dozen of little (and larger) towns worth visiting under 1h away. We arrive in #braunschweig and are absolutely mesmerized. A powerful and influential centre of commerce in medieval Germany, it was a member of the #hanseaticleague from the 13th until the 17th century, and it shows on it's marvelous North German #backstein and #fachwerk houses. We've gone into a few incredible churches and got lost in the city.

Hanseatic.

I just love the colours of Riga's Old Town. And architecturally you can immediately tell that this city has been part of the Hanseatic League for centuries. Especially in the Old Town, there are kontor-style houses and storehouses on every street.

Bremer Stadtmusikanten in Riga.

What's the first thing I find in Riga? Only a statue of the Bremer Stadtmusikanten! Yes, trust the German to find the German thing.

The German hanseatic city of Bremen gifted the statue of the animals looking through a wall to the city of Riga (another member of the Hanseatic League) to celebrate the end of communism in Latvia.

🇩🇪In another great city of the Hanseatic League, Bremen's marktplatz, with its Rathaus and Roland statue, is another of Germany's UNESCO World Heritage sites.🏰 While you're there, have some wine in the Ratskeller🍷, wander the charming streets of the Schnoor🏘, and find the fairy tale Bremerstadtmusikanten statue near the Rathaus.🐎🐕🐈🐓
📷: my son, since the last time I was in Bremen I was taking slides on Fujifilm. 😊

🇩🇪The "historic centre of Wismar" is another of Germany's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 🚢Like Lübeck, it was a major Baltic Sea trading center of the Hanseatic League in the 14th and 15th centuries, and contributed to the characteristic red brick gothic building style of the region. 🏫New construction takes place only outside of its well-preserved medieval town, whose boundaries can still be traced.

This is Lamb's House in Leith, one of the finest and best preserved 16th century Hanseatic Merchant's house in Scotland.

The Hanseatic League was a commercial and defensive confederation of merchant guilds and market towns in Northwestern and Central Europe, at a time when Eastern Scoand was far more commercially connected to Northern Europe than the other parts of the British Isles simply because land travel was so difficult.

The house was built in 1610, however parts of the building may be older and there was a reference to Lamb House in 1587 when Mary, Queen of Scots visited.
The building contains a fine merchant's residence, trade offices, and a warehouse (accessed via a pully, see the left side of the photo). It was built by Andrew Lamb. The Lambs were a prominent family in Leith since the 14th C. One Andrew Lamb (c 1565-1634) was Bishop of Brechin.

The white-harled walls with stone margins, crow-stepped gabels, steep sloped roof and tall chimney stacks, and doors and windows of various shapes and positions were all typical of Scottish design at this time, and inspired the Scotland baronial movement in the 19th century.
