Got my Cundco delivery in today!

image host

Got 1 of each of the new maps, and of course some chips for them. And picked up a few copies of the Tollkeepers expansion as well.
Spiel '19 was in there, so i'm very happy to still call my Carcassonne collection complete :D

Although originally I only collected C1, I have started collecting C2 since the release of the new Big box.
This has resulted in various options available, as I have full sets in both art

However I am usually version specific, meaning I don't mix versions. If I want to play certain expansions that are only in C1, I will use the C1 Base game, and with the C2 Base game only go C2 expansions.
The phantom might be the only exception to that, but that could be as I don't see it as C1 exclusive

The 6th of December is the date Saint Nicolas died. This is where most celebrations come from, to honor his memory.
I never put my Christmas tree up before the 6th of December, as Sinterklaas (Saint Nicolas) is first. Only after that can I start working towards Christmas

That's why I usually check the price history.
Of course some items can have sold for one of those ridiculous prices, but you can see all the previous sales, so it's easier to get an understanding of what a realistic market value is.

Or at least I think so  ;D,

I believe that is Sinscerly's avatar

I think it would be best to send him a quick PM, as he might have a higher resolution than what shows on the forum :)

It is very dependent on what you and any buyer feels it's worth.

Ebay would not really be a good source i think, as some people tend to put ridiculously high prices in.
I usually check the BoardGameGeek marketplace, and check the Price History there per item. This shows what price it has been sold for and when.

I feel this gives a decent idea of market values.
But still, if you feel something is worth more (or less), then it is up to you to ask what you feel is right :)

i think i've got 28 different colours, just in case i find 27 other people who would want to spend an entire day playing a Mega game (or each have 2.53 turns with only a base game). Think that includes all 12 normal wooden meeples, and 9 transparent sets and 7 iced meeples. :P

I placed my order yesterday!
Only to just realise that I forgot to add the ringmasters  :'(

Now I'll have to think if I make another order now or do it later... :-\

I'm intrigued by this rare insight to the Meeple Council....

Let's see what they come up with!

thank you very much for explaining Andrew!

i was thinking of suggesting to contact him for the shipping, as there surely is a reasoning behind it, and i am sure that if someone does, he would give a good quote on what it would cost.

Wow!!! This is great news. The English rules are finally online.

Thanks for the heads-up and have a great time!
I'm just reading through the English rules with the new chip tokens, and noticed an error in their translation.
In the rules for the Great Britain map, to get a meeple back from the Ilse of Man, it states to either have 3 chips of the same number, or three chips of the same colour. However, the illustration shows 3 chips of 3 different colours .
And in the German rules it also states that 3 different colours are required instead of 3 of the same colour.

Has anyone tried out the new maps, or new expansion tokens yet? I'm planning on getting all of them (of course), but am interested to see what the experiences so far are! :)

Language on the WoF starting tile.
There is a German version, Dutch version, English version and BB5 introduced a language-independent version.
(and there is actually a Russian version, but i'm not sure if it has writing on it)
The difference is the writing on the tiles.

It seems like a case of: "If it seems too good to be true, it is"
They've got a lot of listings for Carcassonne items, and everything is in the price range between €30-€40. Even a listing of the Base game with all major and lots of mini expansions.
A lot of pictures seem eBay-like.
They've got multiple listings for the limited edition of the Markets of Leipzig edition as well, with quantities available that don't make sense to me.

I wouldn't trust them, but would be curious to see what happens if someone orders from them  :P

Question on first edition of Carcassonne: It has to be the one with 70 scoretrack or it can be any with the thieve on the bow instead of the princess ?
I think it is only the HIG first edition, with the 70 point scoretrack. I've got a Dutch 999 Games first edition, will compare the shade of green tonight as i'm curious now :)

Now to complete All 3 sets, that's quite a challenge !
If my Dutch 1st edition has the same colour as the HiG version, i think i've got all 3 sets!

Any ideas to check in second hand the barcode or such for first edition of expansions 1 - 5 ? For the second shade
I've been able to collect all the first editions of the first expansions, without watermark. This was mainly by just searching 2nd hand websites, and scanning the photos for watermarks. Don't know the difference in barcode, but found it (relatively) easy to find these expansions without watermark :)
