We have confirmation that UV spot is applied to 20th anniversary features. The river, Marco polo, the mammoths, mini expansion symbols etc.
Well to be honest we already knew that for over a month, or was it two?

Hi Will! if you are patient and wait let's say... about a month from now, maybe a little less, all will be clear nd your questions will be answered.
Just keep an eye on the forum around early May. :(y)

I think some people may indeed find them useful for Carcassonne. There are several things which I can imagine would blend together if you have increased overlap in L and M cones. Red, Purple, Green and Lightgreen meeples might be particularly difficult to tell apart, as well as roofs of C1 cities (C2 cities are better in this regard). The glasses do not improve the number of hues you can percieve at any given time, but they can change which type you can/cannot see. So I can see a scenario where you would don the glasses for the game of Carcassonne.

I wonder if the dark blue grass from Darmstadt, German Castles, Cathedrals and Dutch Monasteries HiG edition, is easier to tell apart from the cities, than other shades of grass. Cities do have a great deal of red in them, so green grass would blend, but not so much grass with greater blue content.

I do not suffer from colorblidness, but I am well familliar with EnChroma glasses.
It is true that they aim to help protans and deutans better distinguish individual hues. Healthy humans have three types of cones in their retina: L cones, M cones abd S cones.
These have different sensitivities to certain wavelengths of light, and when activated, the brain interprets the ratio of triggered cones as color. The cones naturally have overlaps in their responsivness, which is why you are abe to read the screen you are currently viewing, despite it emiting only a limited number of colors.
The L cones of protans, and M cones of deuterans have anomalous responsivity and have greater overlap than normal.
What EnChroma glasses actually do is filter out the light corresponding to the wavelengths, in which there is greatest overlap between L and M cones (see Figure 1, adopted from Gómez-Robledo et al., 2018). Therefore only the wavelengths that strongly activate just one type of cone pass through, and your brain can supposedly differentiate them easier.

That said several studies exploring the effectivness of EnChroma glasses conclude that there is no significant improvement in color perception. You can change the appearance of some colors which were difficult to see, but at the cost of the others.
Of course you might still find them useful in certain situations, or enriching in general.

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.

Good luck on Die Kornkreise. There seems to be a mob of people trying to find it these days!
Not just these days - always  :D

Perhaps some bonus tile mechanic a la H&G will use these in the future...
