General / Alt Color Ringmasters?
« on: October 29, 2018, 06:26:16 AM »
Quick question that hopefully someone can answer.

Does anyone know yet if Ringmasters are available in the wood alternate colors yet? I tried a search on this forum and could only find posts as recent as April saying not yet. At the very least I'd like to get a gray Ringmaster but I'd also be curious if the Ringmaster is finally included with the wood alternate color sets yet? I know they have Ringmasters in the transparency sets but I'm not interested in those at the moment.

Official Rules / The Ferries and the School interaction questions
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:48:12 PM »
I have a couple questions about the Ferries and the School and how the interact.

If one of the roads leading out from the School has a Ferries tile attached to it and in doing so a ferry is placed so that the road continues. I assume if on a subsequent turn if the ferry is moved so that the road leading out of the School is now closed / completed that it, possibly, scores and then the person who completed it gets the School teacher?

What happens if this closed road is later re-opened? Could it be closed again and the teacher be taken by whomever closed it?

What has me curious is that the rules DO say that once all 6 roads are closed the teacher will no longer go to any of the players.

So what happens if after all 6 roads are completed / closed one of them is re-opened due to a shift in ferry placement? If that re-opened road is again closed could the teacher then be claimed?

Asmodee Digital just announced via their Facebook page that they are working on a new digital version of Carcassonne for Android & Steam (PC). The accompanying image suggests it will be styled in the new style artwork with an added sense of 3D to the tiles. Currently Asmodee is taking sign ups for the upcoming beta test of the game.

You can see the original post here (I think), https://www.facebook.com/AsmodeeDigital/photos/a.955810484442115.1073741829.941343545888809/1465970130092812/?type=3

You can get instructions on how to sign up for the beta here, http://forums.asmodee.net/topic/2-how-to-apply/

For me personally, I LOVE the iOS version of Carcassonne and so that's my barometer in regards to what I expect of this new Android & Steam version. Based on the single image in that Facebook post I'm about 50/50 at this point but to be fair Asmodee has been hitting it out of the park lately with their digital board game apps.

General / Couple of questions
« on: December 01, 2016, 09:55:09 PM »
Hello there,

I've been eyeing up a nice, fair-sized order from CundCo as a nice holiday present. I had a couple of questions though. I've only tonight discovered amazing users on the other forum have ported some of the new art expansions to the old art style. I found them available as individual jpgs for each tile and together as a "sheet" in a pdf file. First question is, does anyone have any good tips or suggestions for how to get the artwork onto blank tiles? Do I print directly on the tiles, print on paper and glue the paper on, print on sticker paper and sticker it on the tile, or something else? If printing, in any form, what kind of printer / print settings should I use. If printing, is it a printing a place like Staples or a local print shop could handle?

Last question, with this in mind, if I was to get the gardens / abbot mini expansion in the old art style, other than buying a copy of CCII, where else could I get the abbots in :red-meeple: :yellow-meeple: :green-meeple: :blue-meeple: :black1-meeple: and :gray-meeple:?

Reviews & Session Reports / Tough Loss on iOS Carcassonne
« on: March 27, 2015, 06:11:26 AM »
Hello all,

Been playing a lot of Carcassonne online via my iPad. Yes losing is never fun, especially when the tiles aren't drawing in your favor but nothing hurts more when you make a wrong move that ultimately costs you the game.

I'm including an image of the game right after I made my next to last move. Kudos to anyone who sees the move I should have made instead,  ;)  When games are close I'm usually quite adamant about my moves, making sure I get the most points possible, but this time I missed the right move.  :(

Official Rules / Couple of expansion rules questions!
« on: February 15, 2014, 11:20:23 PM »
Hello all,

Huge fan of the game. I've played the base+river with friends a few times before (which is what got me intially hooked). I own the iOS app and all available expansions for said app. I also just this week got my own copy of the base game (which includes the river) by ZMG plus the I&C and T&B expansions. I've played the iOS app (and thus my knowldge of the rules is largely based on how HiG does them) and java-based implementation known as jcloisterzone a lot and I've studied the CAR a lot as well. In addition I've also studied the official ZMG rules and I now have some concerns. My friends have no exposure to the expansions and I want to change that.

My concerns:

(First let's look at P&D, and I refer to ZMG's rules listed here, http://zmangames.com/rulebooks/Carcassonne_Exp3.pdf)

1. Where in the rules, even implicitly so, does it state that if I place a volcano tile that I can NOT place the fairy?

2. If the builder and pig are NOT followers how then do I argue they should be eaten by the dragon when the rules only say "Each time the dragon moves onto a tile with a follower, that follower is returned to its owner
