General / Carcassonne Expansion Randomizer App
« on: April 09, 2018, 09:46:27 AM »
Someone needs to create a Carcassonne Expansion Randomizer App, so that I can randomly decide what expansions to play with each time I play. I did find a quick work around for this though. I downloaded an app from the Google Play Store called Random Name Picker. In the app I created a list with all my expansions in it. Then I just have to hit the "Choose" button once for a shorter game, or two or three times for a longer game. The app picks the expansions for me. If there already is a Carcassonne Randomizer app out there, just let me know, cuz I couldn't find one. I have no skill in this regard, but I might learn how just for this.

General / Carcassonne mentioned in Church Sermon
« on: April 02, 2018, 07:12:47 AM »
So, I was watching the world-wide conference for my church on Saturday and one of the speakers mentioned the town of Carcassonne. My wife and kids were like, "Hey!? What? I thought Carcassonne was just a game!" I had a good chuckle explaining that Carcassonne the game, was named after an actual real place. My sister told me later that she was confused too, since she'd only ever heard the name "Carcassonne" while playing the game with me. I posted the relevant clip here.
There is a link to the entire speech in the youtube description.

General / Which small expansions will never see a 2.0 reprint?
« on: February 26, 2018, 08:42:02 AM »
I think HiG said that the Catapult will never see a 2.0 version, but it seems they've been very quiet on all of the small expansions. Many it seems are limited/promotional, so I don't think they will get the 2.0 treatment. But here are my top expansions that will probably never get a re-release. Go ahead and list your favorite expansions that will forever be relegated to Carcassonne history.

1. The Cathars/Siege - Though I think these tiles have a cool mechanism and I have played them on an electronic version of Carcassonne, I think this expansion has gone the way of the dodo.   :(

2. The Tunnel, The Plague, Half & Half, and Little Buildings - These seem to have too much going on to me, but I've never played them, so maybe I'm wrong. However, I don't see them coming to 2.0, and I don't really care one way or the other.

3. The Compass Rose/Windrosen - I like playing with these tiles on the electronic version as well. Too bad they will probably never get an update.

4. Wheel of Fortune - I'm probably the saddest about this one potentially never getting a 2.0 upgrade. The wheel is awesome. Hopefully HiG will see the wisdom of re-releasing this one. I'd be all over it.

5. Castles of Germany - These double-sized tiles look really cool. Never played with these either. I hope they get re-released, but I ain't holding my breath.
