Thank you – safely arrived, perfect timing for an evening in with [games]!  …An additional thanks from my cat – who refused to go out in the snow and so was inside being a general menance – she LOVED the box the games came in and spent a happy evening jumping and out of the box chasing shadows and bits of fluff. :-)”
