The Marketplace / Re: WTB: Blank tiles for Hunters and Gatherers

I think they used to be available, if I'm not mistaken. However it seems that they may have been replaced by blank Hill and Dale tiles.

I'm from Santiago, Chile  ;D

We are looking to be in Santiago, Chile in December!  Lets keep and contact and hopefully we can get together for a game or seven!

Count with me, but don't expect me to speak a very good English!   :-[

Hey Xander12, we are getting close! And, earlier in the year than we originally planned. We are in Mendoza, Argentina right now and we are heading to Santiago next weekend. We will be in Santiago for about a little more than two weeks. So, if you'd like to get together and play a couple of games, let me know.

If anyone else is in South America or will be any time in the next year or so and are interested in meeting up for some Carc, let me know where you are. We are still moving around a lot in South America and will revisit some of the countries that we've already visited. We are in northern Argentina now. Up next will be Chile, with longer stays in Santiago and Valparaíso before heading further south and returning to Argentina and then stopping for a while in Uruguay. We'd love to meet up with any other Carc fans and would be thrilled to get in a game if possible.

Kind regards to all.

On a side note, Carc seems to be supremely expensive in this part of the globe.

That will be an incredible journey! Good luck and I hope you get to play a game or two of Carcassonne along the way.  :green-meeple:

Meanwhile, I have been to all those countries so let me know if you need any tips. And I might be in the neighborhood from Sep-Dec (Bolivia-Paraguay-Brazil), so if you're still on the continent then, our paths may cross.

Thanks Jungleboy!  It sure will be quite an adventure!  We are very much enjoying Bogotá right now; we have been for about 10 days so far.  Not sure if we'll be in the same places at the same times since our plan is to be in Bolivia around July-Aug, but that is still a long ways away so things may change.

Hello all!

Recently my girlfriend and I began a 1-year+++ adventure to South America.  We are currently in Bogotá, Colombia and will be spending a year, possibly longer, traveling around the South American continent.  Are there any Carc Central members residing in, or planning to visit, South America that might like to arrange a meeting for a game or several?  We will be in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay.  The larger cities we will be hitting will be Bogotá, Quito, Cuenca, Lima, Cusco, La Paz, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santiago and Valparaiso.  Hopefully we can meet up with some of you for a game. 

We are also working on a travel blog.  Check out to follow us around South America.

Kind regards,

Joe  :green-meeple:

Leagues (including expansion leagues) / Re: Minis League: Final round
« on: October 16, 2017, 01:39:46 PM »
Sorry,  I am unable to play tonight so I need to forfeit my match.


I also got my game in with ny1050220 today and it was pretty intense.  A great battle on both sides but I ended up with the advantage on the gold bars which gave me the slight victory.  Very well-played close game by ny1050220.

Final score:
 :green-meeple: 143 JoeSesquipedalian
 :blue-meeple: 140 ny1050220

Had my game with khalidqasrawi today.  The gold bars gave me the edge I needed for the victory, most of which I didn't even need to work for.  khalidqasrawi played very well and had a few of my meeples trapped early on, some of which never escaped.  The game started out very strange with 4 crop circles coming out in the first 10 tiles.  Final score:
khalidqasrawi:  166  :red-meeple:
JoeSesquipedalian: 189  :green-meeple:

I'm in the chatroom and on slack channel if anyone can play.

Can I please have an invitation?  Thanks.   :green-meeple:

Hello Goldminers!

I am currently living in the US in CDT, which is UCT-5.  I am generally available during the week from 08:00 to 16:00.  I am occasionally available to play on the weekends, but the times will vary from weekend to weekend. 

I am looking forward to getting some games going.  I will be spending a lot more time in the chatroom during the league.  I hope to play soon.  Feel free to message me on the forum or privately.

General / Megacarc suggestions?
« on: May 13, 2017, 10:25:05 AM »
Hello meeples!

A couple friends and I will be playing a mega-carc game on Monday and I am looking for some suggestions of rule-modifications to make things run a littles smoother.  We are looking at using about 600 tiles, pretty much every official major and minor expansion.  Looking for your thoughts on the following:

1.  Plague  - to play, or not to play?  We are definitely going to use the landscape tiles, but haven't figured out how, or if, we are going to incorporate the rules.  We don't want to have to flip over flea tokens every turn in a 600 tile game.  Maybe just add the plague tiles when we are down to about 100 tiles?   Not use it at all?  Use it for a pre-specified number of turns?

2.  King/Robber Baron ---  too many points?  too difficult to count roads/cities in mega-carc?   any suggestions on these guys?

3.  Robber/Messenger  --- anyone played with these in mega-carc?  are they more of a nuisance than anything?  At the moment leaning towards yes to messengers, no to robbers...... maybe no to both.   any thoughts/ideas?

4.  Princess/Dragon --- looking to possibly incorporate 3 full sets of P&D tiles.  For a game so large, should we use multiple dragons?  How would that work?   Should the dragons move more than 6 spaces?  Should the layer of the dragon tile choose which dragon EVERYONE must move?   2 steps at a time per player?  Anyone have experience with P&D in mega-carc or a multi-dragon game?

5.  La porxada and spiel tile --- thinking of just using the spiel tile and la porxada as 5-point bonuses or something to that effect if they are included in the feature.  Any suggestions are welcome

6.  Will extra meeples be necessary??   There are several ways of retrieving meeples, so the standard count might be sufficient (dragon, festivals, abbey tiles, crop circles).

7. Catapult --  i think not.  Any suggestions for their tile uses?  As extra festival tiles???  Maybe draw an extra tile?   Maybe roll a die  1,festival  2,bazaar, 3,magic portal  4,volcano .....etc. ?

8.  Dutch/Japanese/German cloisters -  They will all be in, but should there be a limit for their use since they can be so powerful?  maybe 3 per person?  (we will be 3-players)

9. Halflings - any creative suggestions for using the 24 halfling tiles?

10. Barns - barns can be quite pesky as they can convert the game into a sneak my guy onto this barned field to get big points type game.  That will involve lots of city counting.   Any suggestions on how to make the barns more user-friendly in a mega-carc game?   Maybe we should eliminate them all-together?

I am sure there will be more issues that come up, so if anyone has any general suggestions, I'd be more than happy to hear them.   I am excited (and nervous) to use my Crop Circle I tiles for the first time.  We will also be using the fan expansions Fortune Tellers and City Gates for the first time.  :(y)

Here is a rough breakdown of what we will be playing with:

Base game + start tile  = 72
New edition base game = 72
River 1 = 10
River 2 = 10
Carc II River = 10
Misc river springs, lakes, forks, etc ~6
Inns Cathedrals = 18

King and Robber Barron = 5  + 2 special
Cathars = 4
Princess and Dragon = 30  (possibly 3 sets = 30x3= 90)
GQ = 11
Abbey and Mayor = 12  + abbeys
Shrines = 5
cult siege creativity = 10
Catapult = 12
Wheel of Fortune = 19
Tunnel = 4
Bridges/Cast/Bizz = 12
Crop Circles = 6
Festival = 10
School = 2
Flier = 8
Messages = 8 special
Ferries = 8
goldmines = 8
mage/witch = 8
robbers = 8
crop circles2 = 6
wind roses = 6
besiegers = 6
hills/sheep = 18
german mon. = 6
dutch mon = 6
japan mon = 6
halflings I + II = (24 half tiles)
darmstadt = 3

russian promos = 2
plague = 6
under big top = 20
fortune teller = 8
city gates = 24
watchtowers = 12
labyrinth = 2
porxada = 1

Thanks in advance for any comments, ideas, suggestions, criticisms   :green-meeple: :@ :))

So we all agree that a flying machine can send a follower over a blank space, yes?

That's how I've always played.
