A guy contacted me from the States, maybe I will sell him one from my 4 Phoenixes to have some space for new cabs.
He also looking for some Euro made cabs, here is a copy of his letter:
I'm looking into the possibility of bringing a half-container over from the UK. If I can figure out a way to get your games there I would love to do that. I'm focusing on Zaccaria, Sidam, and other Euro games. LMK if you know of anything else available.
Maybe I can send a truck across Europe picking up games along the way!

If anybody wants to sell something like this, maybe it is a good opportunity.

Ask around if anyone knows him on the US forums. I am all for trust but these kind of deals need confirmation IMHO.

By the way, let him know that in exchange for every Euro cab we want a US cab of choice WinkWinkWinkWinkWink

Yeah, it would be nice if we could also send a truck around the States and collect a container of cabs. Cheesy

Not a bad idea, perhaps she can help us get some nice cabs in the other direction  Grin
