Have you checked? I wonder how Tom got the second stamp.


Nope, It's still there, (just checked)

Out of curiosity what flavour sausages is Offler eating at the moment, as I think I went too cheap last time by offering Dibblers Own Budget Sausages :( and your sacrifice obviously met with great approval. Should I maybe be using Gordon Ramtops Premium Goumet Sausages instead ;)
Maybe it would have been wise to pm this as now every sausage offerer for miles around will be watching this thread avidly which may make Offler less likely to reward his subjects. But I figured that your pm box would be full of people offering trades, cash & LBE's for that second Triangle, so my message may have been 'lost in the post' so to say.
Any adivce and help greatly appreciated :thumbr:
From experience you don't have to rush these things. It was months before I got a blue triangle and it didn't require lots of money.


We should remember the p word


Ok, well the P word (pork) didn't work. Just got a second batch of LBE's and everything had four corners :(
New trades
Still got those pesky gaps to fill? See if I have what your looking for in My Stamp Trades
Missing that certain edge? Why not see if I can help you obtain it with My Corner Trades

13 now. One of the nicest stamps so far, the foil in the selvage is an interesting touch.

I don't really like the foil on the selvage to be honest. Looks a bit too "modern" for Discworld in my opinion. But the stamp itselv is very nice, and the selvage can come of before it goet into the album, so no big problem.

Just been looking at the Hubwards gate Blue Triangle posted on the Discworld Stamp catalogue and the gates look open, are they supposed to be. I ask as the gates on mine are closed and you can't stop hoping this might be the sport.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Justin,
Congratulations! You have indeed found the very first sport! The Hubwards gate is closed.
Well done! We were beginning to worry it had got lost in the ether!

Another Hubwards Gate sport is destined for the Hogswatch event LBE... Keep your eyes out!


*edit...I don't know if any/all of this is a spoiler now!
