Hey Rosco. Good luck with this initiative. I hope it brings in a lot of money for your noble and worthwhile causes.

In all likelihood, the majority of any money raised here will be through people wanting to get hold of the rarer, more valuable items that they don't already have. An auction gives them more control in this respect as they can simply bid very high to ensure they get what they're after. A raffle is more random of course, but people can still buy extra tickets if they want to improve their chances of winning. With this in mind, an auction is likely to bring most money but I think probably better to do it publically rather than blind.

Good luck!

I appreciate you thinking of me jungleboy.

Chooselife actually came up with a pretty good "being punched in the face" themed dice game that would be my preference, but it's a close second...

Hope you're doing well my friend!

Hi Andrew, and welcome to the forums!

Thanks for taking the time to explain this in person.

Best wishes,

Almost certainly not. It's the same thing as you sometimes see on Amazon with third party sellers who don't want to remove their item and re-add it, for example if they're going on holiday and don't want anyone to order anything of theirs while they're away as they won't be able to fulfil it, so put a crazy shipping price on their thing to stop anyone from buying it.

As for why boardgameextras would do this, I'm not sure. But it's certainly nothing to do with Brexit as thankfully we're still in the EU at the moment and can continue to enjoy the benefits that this membership brings.

Looking forward to round 9 when we have all caught up.


JackFace and Rosco are due to play this evening. I haven't heard back from laplazadecarcassonne yet, but I'm sure I will do soon. Any news from anyone else?

Yes, this is a problem that a lot of people have reported as it can really spoil the game for so many reasons. :(

The official ruling is that, when using this special scoreboard, you may pretend that St. Nicholas is actually Santa Claus and/ or Father Christmas and vice versa. Hopefully this will assist with your enjoyment of the game. :(y)

Hi all.

If there is sufficient interest then I am happy to continue with the tournament. There's only so much I can do in order to facilitate the playing of the games though, so unless everyone else is 100% onboard then we will struggle to get to the end with all games played. It just gets messy if we leave games unplayed.

Outstanding games to be played:

R6: Sinscerly vs. MrNumbers

R7: Sinscerly vs. JackFace

R8: Rosco vs. JackFace
R8: MrNumbers vs. TheSteveAllen
R8: LaplazadeCarcassonne vs. danisthirty

I will be in touch with LaplazadeCarcassonne and will hopefully get our match played before the end of this week. It is entirely down to me that our match was never played earlier. He was very flexible in terms of scheduling our match previously but I let him down on two separate occasions for reasons that I won't go into here...

I would be very grateful to anyone else who has an outstanding match if they could get in touch with their outstanding opponents so that we can get things back on track within a sensible timeframe.

Good luck everyone!

Cool cool. If it works out any cheaper for you I'm happy for you to send them in a roll to me in the UK, then I can fold and forward on. Guess we'll have to see how it works out.

I would prepare yourself to be ticked off in that case. I would be very surprised if they drop any Spiel 19 tiles in with their orders just for the sake of it. In previous years, as you know, tiles left over from Essen have been kept back for some special offer that usually starts in early December. Perhaps you could wait for the maps until then?

Happy belated birthday, Sinscerly!

I just checked the calendar and I missed it by almost only one day.  :o

Hope you had an incredible day and rest of the week is going smoothly to say the list!


Tnx, yes was an amazing rainy day. Was a long time ago I've seen so much water falling down :)) had some friends over and we played some games (Saboteur, 30 seconds, Dixit(with our own rules, because I got crazy with the worse manual...), Celestia)
I got Flamme Rogue from my GF and a friend ;D

Happy birthday Sinscerly, and sorry for my late reply. It sounds like you had a great day! O0

Hello _Guide_ and welcome to the site! :) :(y)

The problem with your question is simply that HiG (the German publishers of Carcassonne and its expansions, and who effectively "own" it) are a business. They keep themselves in business, by selling games to people like you and me and that money gets invested back into creating new expansions for Carcassonne and other exciting new games. If they were to allow people to simply print off their games for free then this is exactly what everyone would do. Nobody likes spending money when they don't have to! And pretty soon, HiG would have no money left and there would be nobody to keep the world of Carcassonne running for us.

There are places where you can play Carcassonne online, on a computer, for free. I often play at although there are also free implementations of the game that can be downloaded such as JCloisterZone (

I hope this makes sense and doesn't seem too unfair to you. One advantage to being in Russia is that you may have access to some of the exclusive Russian promo tiles that have proved very popular with a lot of Carcassonne completionists around the world. I believe they were given away at previous national championships, but may still be available. If you can get hold of a couple of sets of those I'm sure you wouldn't struggle to find someone who would swap you for a Carcassonne set including some of those expansions you've listed!

Good luck.

Hi danisthirty,
I am happy to see that the UK used the 2-player games for their Carcassonne championships.
You did a great tournament day few weeks ago.


Great to hear from you again kettlefish, and thanks for your comment. :(y)

Hope all is well in your world!
