General / Iranian version of Carcassonne (Kados or کادوس)
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:13:51 AM »
Hi all,

Looking for some Carcassonne content, I found a version apparently distributed only in Iran. In the same way that current version of Carcassonne sold in Arabic peninsula, they changed a little bit the name of some components (clusters and abbot). In this version the changes are not only restricted to names, the entire art (logo, box, tiles, even back of the tiles) is totally different.



Check this blog to see what I am talking about:
http://mrgamers.ir/1398/02/18/%DA%A9%D8%A7%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%B3-%D9%BE%D8%B1%D9%81%D8%B1%D9%88%D8%B4-%D8%AA%D8%B1%DB%8C%D9%86-%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%B2%DB%8C-%D8%B1%D9%88%D9%85%DB%8C%D8%B2%DB%8C/

When I saw it, I thought that it was (or is) a fan-made version, like Legend of Zelda or Super Mario Bros fan-editions. However, I found it was distributed and sold widely in plenty of websites, some of them dedicated to sell board games in Iran. That makes me think that it is not just a fan print and play.

I am pretty sure this edition is not related with HiG (no logo is found in any box) in any way (licensed, approved, or partnered); nevertheless, they, in some descriptions, mention HiG as the original publisher and  Klaus-Jürgen Wrede as designer.

I searched about this company, but their website is dead (https://web.archive.org/web/20140730194758/http://www.kadousgame.com:80/) and the Facebook profile is not active since 2014 (https://www.facebook.com/kadousgame). Its release was recent, for that maybe some copies are out there.

If someone knows something else about this project, I would be happy to read more about.

The Marketplace / WTB Carcassonne Maps in USA
« on: August 17, 2020, 12:35:19 PM »
Hi all,

I want to get all Carcassonne maps but in Cundco store shipping is about 50€! Five maps + chips will cost more than 100€  :-\

I was looking in some boardgame stores, not only here, but also in Europe, however they are very limited or out of stock.

Please, if some of you (users in Americas continent) have successfully bought them, could you share your experience in case you got them for a better shipping price?

Thanks,

Hi everyone, some weeks ago I started searching some information about videogames of this boardgame; however, I found some incomplete and fragmented information. I decided compile it in a simple list sorted by time. Hope this calm the curiosity of some people that are looking the same information.

If you notice some error, please let me know.


You can see an updated version of this information now in the Wikicarpedia
