It's wonderful that Mohsen has been able to help so many people from the world's Carcassonne community!

A huge thank you to you, for going to so much trouble find a way to get this shipped safely!

Originally,  I asked BW for these, not for general play, but for a very specific case needing a fixed
 area of play.

But, they do inadvertently solve the problem of table-edge-Carcassonne. They provide a slightly extendable table edge  ;D

Decided to give this one a miss. It does look great, but as I've not played it, I held back. I've not even played the mobile app I picked up some time ago.  A lot of people like it, so I'm sure it'll be great!

A few years ago I asked Basically Wooden if they could assist here.

They came up with these:

One of the biggest issues is having enough boards to cover a reasonable size game.

I picked this up on a visit to Japan about 2 years ago.  It was nice going to the Mobius HQ in Tokyo.

On a previous visit to Japan I went to the Giant Buddha in Kamakura - The Second largest Buddha in all Japan!

It's well worth a visit, just to see his sandals.  I have fond memories of the train ride up there too.  Someone lost a wallet and a school child had carefully placed it on a post.  It was still there 50 minutes later.  It was quite busy too with children going to school around 8.30.

For a few pennies you get to go inside the Giant Buddha too!

Looks like Fjords is coming to Kickstarter on the 23rd Feb. Much sooner than I was expecting.

There's a news post on BGG, but doesn't give much away:

I don't really like seeing all these unlicensed products popping up.

Take those 3d tiles, I bet you can feel just what tile you need in the bag!  >:(

Great to hear from you Carcatronn.

Grabbed a few of these last year.  My (then) 1-year old loved these.  He puts the giant meeple into this bag of wooden shapes.

Not much going on in the world of Carc, other than the 20th Anniversary edition coming out around May.

Most other things are still on hiatus here until the pandemic clears.

Scratch my initial suggestion.

Release date in Germany is 1st August, long before Essen.

Congrats DaFees, It's a worthy box and seems like a good price too.

It's not a straightforward question unfortunately.

Railroads will be published by HiG.  This covers Germany and Austria.
Devir has announced they are printing the Spanish version. This covers Spain, Portugal, Spanish speaking countries in America.
Zman have announced they will be publishing the English editions for USA, UK, and Australia.
Other countries have not announced yet, but it's likely most will follow.

It's not a straightforward question because distribution in each region is managed by their licence holder.

I suspect it will hit retail in most countries, meaning your Friendly Local Game Store (FLGS) will have it.

I doubt it will be on preorder much before October.  I suspect there will be an initial run at Essen in Germany in October. But I'm guessing.

Early copies of English/Zman Paleo were sold from Cundco at Essen in 2020, so it may happen again. That was quicker than waiting for a a boat from the USA to arrive.

Sit back... wait and see... shop around.

I played Russian Railroads on BoardGameArena last week.  It was a blast!
