I would recommend BB5 as well. Even if you end up not liking WoF, you can still use it as the base game. If you decide to later purchase WoF as a stand alone, it will likely cost you almost as much (if not more) as BB5.

Good luck dealing with the greens! It is something most of us have all had to accept. I will tell you that the "Carcassonne: 10 Year Special Edition" has "The Festival Mini-Expansion" that is much lighter than the stand alone "Festival Mini-Expansion".

My Big Meeples came in today. I agree with cletus81, they are the perfect addition to the AofC!

Our household has grown away from farmers, so not having them isn't an issue here! I find the game play is still very much enjoyable. We usually only play with them when we are in a competitive mood.

These are great. He seems very down to Earth and relatable.

My 2018 English version of The Tower does not have it either.

I did notice that the Polish version of The Castle has a game of "Tic-tac-toe" engraved next to the gate entrance.

I ended up with an extra set of "Japanese Buildings" (spent an arm and a leg right before Cundco dropped the Easter sale ::) ;D). It is still sealed.

I would like to offer it for trade. I am open to most any thing related to the world of Carcassone (C1, C2, expansions, game pieces, oddities, gear, stand alones, etc). However, here is a list of items I am still looking to add to my collection and would jump to trade for:

- Bonusplättchen Spiel 2018
- Halb so wild II
- Die Kornkreise I
- Wind Roses I  (Hans im Glück Version with all 4 cardinal directions)

Ah, I see what you are saying. It is still odd that both rulebooks state "72 tiles, including the Start tile" when in reality BB5 shows 73. I'm guessing something happened during translation, or do the German versions appear the same?

Completionism is a wonderfully frustrating addicition!

They wanted to include the crfr (D) tile in case you play with the River and/or WoF, so that you can still play with it even though it is not a starter

I thought the starter was included with the initial 4, so wouldn't a 5th be an extra?

While we are on the subject, the base game/WOF in Big Box 5 has 73 tiles instead of 72 (even though it says "72 tiles, including the Start tile")? BB5 has 5 "D" tiles instead of "4". Is there any explanation to this?

Pictures attached for reference.
Pic 1: BB3 (left) vs BB5 (right) "Base Game" directions (BB5 base game is part of WOF).
Pic 2: BB3 Top BB5 Bottom

I purchased BB5 solely for the WOF and River. I find the extra markings on the base game does not detract from game play (and, for the record, I am medically diagnosed with OCD and they do not bother me ;D).

Good luck on Die Kornkreise. There seems to be a mob of people trying to find it these days!

If you are feeling a little adventurous and are not worried with matching, there are some pretty cool red "C" tile backs in the Treasure Chest expansion by Novelty.;sa=view;down=74

Well folks, I couldn't decide on which C1 River to purchase, so I just tracked them all down. I also added a few extra fan made tiles. The C1 addiction has hit hard.

Did you also include the river from the PC/ CD-ROM version of the game which had the copy-protection codes on the back?

Can I give you a -1 for crushing my happiness :'(? Totally kidding ;D!

That is an awesome bit of history! But, I will try to be satisfied with the ones I have. As much as I like to collect, I am usually content with at least one of any expansion that has any functional difference (though my OCD has me buying more than I should at times!).

Maybe, but I wont hold my breath!

I did not order a mega meeple because of the shipping price to the US, but in retrospect I wish I would have after seeing the picture of yours.

Thank you Decar. And for the record, I did not get any extra goodies this time :( ;D.
