We all love at least one variety of Carcassonne. It's so obvious - doesn't need saying.

But there are some less favoured offerings out there.

Please offer support to either if warranted, in your opinion. But fundamentally which is worse :-

1. Carcassonne the Dice Game
2. Expansion 7 The Catapult

General / Worst Carcassonne expansion to date
« on: January 07, 2019, 02:49:55 AM »
Time for a new year rant.

What is the most useless offering to date with reasons please. (this is not aimed at home grown expansions)

There are a few that I rate as substandard due to gameplay (or lack thereof) only. Theme doesn't bother me but I know it does other forum members.

My vote goes to the recent 'start tiles' from Spiel Doch magazine. Any start tile should have the different colour back and these don't, there are advertising words on the tiles and no special rules to accompany them. Totally pointless, useless and badly thought out.

I still bought them. Shame on me.

Other Games / Game exchange

Hi all, I have bought Ruthless: Legends of the Black Flag and it is unfortunately too complex for me to play with my 10 and 5 year old nephews which is a shame as they love pirates. The game has been opened and items punched but never played. Looking to exchange for something simpler.

As a guide we play carc Star Wars, Kings of Tokyo, Transamerica, Splendor, exploding kittens, top trumps,  cardcassonne and Kingdomino - not just kerplunk and operation!

I am getting Azul and carc Safari for Xmas.


General / Unsolicited emails
« on: November 06, 2018, 06:25:25 AM »
I have received 2 unsolicited emails to my personal email address asking in I have the besiegers for sale.

I sold mine in June. So no idea why I am being contacted today. I assume it is a phishing scam and wanted you all to be aware.

General / Favourite single Carcassonne item
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:00:19 AM »
If you could only retain 1 carcassonne item, what would it be. No matter the reason, burning house, need to sell for cash or whatever the doomsday scenario...... What is your one carc item that you will keep above all others?

Mine is the welcome tournament tile. Made by Decar, it was a surprise gift , not many exist, a reminder that I can beat other good players ony day.

Other Games / Relic

Has anyone played Relic from Games Workshop. If so what did you think? I am considering buying it but would like some feedback before I do so.

JCloisterZone FAQ, Suggestions & Bug Reports / Abbey placement query
« on: March 30, 2018, 12:53:45 AM »
Just wondering why there are 3 places that look valid for abbey placement are not being allowed by JCZ?.....I wanted to use 1 of them!

See attachment.

Whilst playing the WC 2108 final configuration, Rosco and I were able to remove a meeple with the rather alluring Princess and then immediately take over the vacant city with the phantom as part 2 of a single turn.

A comment in v7.4 of CAR under the phantom definitely outlaws this.

Obviously by embarrassment at performing an illegal act with my 6th tile of the game totally ruined my equilibrium and I lost by 150 points.  Oh the shame of it.

I therefore request an amendment to the JCZ gameplay to save others from this fate.

The new indicator has been noted.

The Marketplace / I have waited too long for more abbot's
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:21:01 AM »
So I have a plan but I need help. If I buy another big box of the new art, I get 180 tiles I don't need but some abbot's that I can paint. Cost me about £48 including shipping.
I sell base game tiles plus meeples for £15
Each major expansion including associated wood for £5
Each mini expansion £2.50
River £2.5
50/100 tiles £1.5
Score board £1.5

I would break even. (in reality I likely get left with messages! But I can live with that)

Anyone interested in helping Halfling with my 2018 hare-brained idea?

The Marketplace / WTS Hunters And gatherers
« on: March 06, 2018, 08:50:41 AM »
I have a spare copy of hunters and gatherers and the king and scout in its box that both need a good home. Anypne interested at £25.00 plus shipping?

General / The North American circus?

Anyone else noted that the New World /Mayflower meeples make great Ringmasters and vice versa?

Reviews & Session Reports / Halflings first big game with expansion 10
« on: January 23, 2018, 11:37:50 PM »
I now have enough of the new tiles to play a big game with the following this evening with 3 colleagues after work.  I will be interested to see if we get the usual 'big top chasers' given that the 12 tiles will in theory take longer to surface with double the number of tiles. 

Base Game + River I
Inns & Cathedrals
Traders & Builders
Abbey & Mayor
Under the Big Top
The Flyers
Witch & Mage
Gold Mines

Approximately 200 tiles from memory - Match report later
