Title: Giant Carcassonne Tiles!
Post by: danisthirty on September 07, 2018, 03:36:34 AM
Hey all, not sure if many of our current members will remember Carcatronn (Ted) who used to run the Carcassonne Shoppe, and who also masterminded his hugely successful Kickstarter campaign "The Adults of Carcassonne" but all of us oldies certainly will do. Anyway, he recently shared the following photos via his Facebook page so I thought I'd share them here too in case anyone else is interested in getting their hands on a set of giant Carcassonne tiles (specifications below):



After more than 3 years, it was time to dig into storage and sort out the remaining sets of Carcassonne Coasters. You are looking at the last 100 sets in existence, and man was that a long day! If you or your friends are interested, you can email us at CarcassonneShoppe@gmail.com to snag a set for $25 + shipping! Sets will include the original 72 base game designs, Corn Circle I, Tunnels, and the Abbeys.

Coaster Set details:
Sets include the original 72 base game designs, Corn Circle I, The Tunnels, and the Abbeys for $25 + shipping


These are the only ones in existence so get them while you can if you're interested as they're going fast! :o

Thanks for sharing Dan. I'd seen his tweet but wasn't sure about what was included. Not sure I've got a big enough table for this, but certainly one to add to the collection for collectors / completionists!

Wow, I always blamed me not being enough Carcassonne fan in 2014 to participate to the Adults of Carcassonne kickstarter campaign, now I have the last chance to get my hands on those wonderful tiles and I don't want to miss it!!!
Thank you very much Dan for this post, I am going to send an email right now!

Nicely volunteered Rich! :) :(y)

I already asked Ted how much shipping would be for one set and he stated it was $23.50 which is roughly £18.11 or €20.28. I don't know how much it goes up by when you include 2 or more sets but obviously it will be less per set when averaged across several sets.

I am from EU too, (Italy) but I am not sure that this solution would be cheaper for us, shipping from UK to other European country is quite expensive. Anyway I have asked him the shipping rate to Italy for two sets, I can tell you if the EU shipment could be convenient for me after his reply.

They stated previously that the Big Red Bag and the Rubber Scoreboard are availabe to. I am interested in these both to, might be good to know for bulk ordering :)


Edit; the bags are sold out, but i would still like a rubber scoreboard!

We could buy two sets if shipping rates are ok. You already bought from me a small expansion, I can’t remember which one, but I gave it to you at GiocaTorino.

Although I am interested, I fear customs will destroy you financially to have a large shipment come in.  Individually packed sets will be exempt from customs charges.

There goes the dream, I will think about shared shipping. So they still have something left.

Yep I think also that large quantites will be taxed a lot, best would be 2/3 sets max to one unique country.

If there is somebody else from Germany, would be perfect; but I guess Carc Forum would be the best place for me :)

Got confirmation for my set  O0

I have a set reserved.  How long do we wait before putting in the order?.....

"If you buy goods online from outside the EU for delivery to the UK, you'll have to pay Customs Duty (if over £120 value) and Import VAT (if over £18) on top of the purchase price (including duties), though Customs Duty is waived if the amount of the calculated duty payable is £7 or less.".....this looks expensive?!

[/quote]

2 sets should stay under the 120 GBP i believe, but 3 might go over.
What we could do is order 2 sets and 1 set seperately, and share shipping costs.
So we'll probably come down to around 20USD (or 15.50 GBP) each.

I'm happy to coordinate with Ted for this, if Halfling and Dan are ok with this?
Looks like getting more sets will be more expensive shipping wise

Post by: Decar on September 09, 2018, 12:43:42 AM
you'll have to pay import duty.

Which will be at 20% (item plus shipping).  you could ask Ted to undervalue the item. but if it's lost or damaged in transit you'll have no repercussion.  Expect to pay the duty - you pay it on everything else you buy (except books)
Title: Re: Giant Carcassonne Tiles!
Post by: Chartreusito on September 09, 2018, 11:55:44 AM
Hi,

Given the import tax, i may order on my own for this one to france, and i would'nt impose on you managing an order of this size, it's not just a few tiles !

So you can count me out, and thanks for "volunteering" ;-)

OK so it seems that there are little savings to be made unless people can share postage with someone who also intends to have their tiles posted to the same country as themselves. This makes sense as any savings made on having items sent from the US to a single country will soon be lost when international postage is taken into account a second time to get pieces to their final recipients. Plus there's tax/ customs etc (wherever this applies). :@

So while I'm all for doing things together and helping each other out, a single bulk order isn't going to be the way forward. Let's buddy-up with our fellow countrymen, or order for ourselves if there's no other way. C:-)

I am probably grouping with Bigboss for Germany, waiting for more Infos.

But actually something is not clear, the actual 72 tiles are made of what ? This rubber type material for the scoretrack ? Or the standard Cork-carton type ?

If it is the later, it means a random spillage will eventually kill the tile or maybe I am mistaken ?

I think they're made of card like a typical beer mat in a pub. So you'll want to be as careful with these as you would your regular Carcassonne tiles.

1. regarding the postage to germany, I will ask carcassonneshoppe now via facebook!

2. The rubberized coaster tiles aren´t anymore availlable - We get  "only" the normal cork tiles.


PS:
There were various additional material (for a "special" complete AoC Set), which had been produced in smaller edition.

• x12 mini fridge magnets in 6 colors for use with the Tunnels expansion coaster pack
• x6 BPA-free acrylic 1.5 oz. shot glasses in clear with Phantom Meeple print in 6 colors
•  rubberized coasters
•  gold, silver, bronze acrylic shot glasses

sorry, I've probably expressed it badly - all the special things for AoC are sold out - as far as I know - just many years ago   :'(


So my information about exclusive bonus materials for AoC was "unfortunately" meant purely informative.

of course, it's better to ask him anyway... :D

Hey guys! Wow - a lot of comments on this - you guys are amazing  8)
I am buried in emails, but since I don’t know everyone’s real name with CC username, not sure if I’ve already talked to you all yet! If you’re interested and haven’t bundled up with folks, please be sure to email to reserve items!

But actually something is not clear, the actual 72 tiles are made of what ? This rubber type material for the scoretrack ? Or the standard Cork-carton type ?

I think they're made of card like a typical beer mat in a pub. So you'll want to be as careful with these as you would your regular Carcassonne tiles.

Just to clarify - these are not the standard coasters as you get from a pub. Pubs usually have Light Weight pulp board coasters (approx 40pt) where these are two sizes thicker (2mm thick) and stronger (Heavy Weight pulp board coasters - (approx 80pt))

 Meaning, they can take a lot of abuse! One of the Kickstarter updates from the project shows the test results with whiskey damage, coffee ring stains, and water - results were very favorable!

Received my set while out of town this week. Played it right out of the package tonight. Super cool novelty set to have. Plus, it’s the only version of Corn Circles 1 that I have (one of the few 1.0 items I don’t have - in small form)!

Now just need to get my hands on some giant meeples and giant tunnels...

Here’s a pic of the game. It really needed something though for scale, but zooming in shows the tiny translucent meeples we used.

I stored mine in my Catapult box. Was looking for my Tower box but couldn’t find it. Perfect length and height for the tiles in 3 stacks, with a little extra width that I used part of the insert from that box to take up.

Meeplesource used to do "Giant" and "Colossal" meeples which would be perfect but I don't think they've been in stock for a while now. Other than that I'm not sure what to suggest. How are your woodwork skills? ;)

Indeed it would. Especially if you factor in shipping to the UK which would end up being more than the meeples!

What about 3D Printed meeples?

An accurate model could be scaled to the proper size and printed in any variety of colors. Not the most cost-effective approach, but certainly easier than contending with poor woodworking skills. :)

Also, I'm a bit late to the offer - are giant sets sill available? I'd be all for getting one. And I've got the 3D Printer to make the meeples.

For those looking for glasses, I saw these in Tesco this morning.

Thanks. They were pretty cheap too (couple of quid, although you'd need 2 packs), just a shame there's only 4 colours.

they look perfect! Will check tesco somewhere this week :) and at least that would make it a 4-player game :P

These were in a Tesco Express store in the middle of town, rather than a big supermarket. Hopefully they'll not be too hard to find.

These are both different brands, but think you get the gist. Clear ones could be a fifth player. Leftover ones could then be custom decorated with paints / stickers
