I am starting here a new topic with some examples with differences in rules of the Carcassonne - New Edition (short: CC II).

I am looking between the differences of the German and English rules also the differences form the rule in the original box (base game and the expansions) and the rules of the BigBox6.

I've created a small landscape with 9 landscape tiles = 3 x 3 tiles. The tiles are placed according the rules, but the start tile is not a necessary component of this landscape. Each tile is different.

The base game has 72 tiles total - but there are only 24 tiles which are different.
The landscape has 9 different tiles (3x3tiles) - placement like the regular Carcassonne rules.

The tile list at HiG will help you - new Edition: CCII-base game - tiles . The small pictures onto the tiles like farm, garden, etc. have no effect.
You can also look at the tile list for the classical edition CCI-base game - tiles.

You can place the real tiles and take a photo or you can use the files in the following link.

If it helps people are welcome to use the graphics from this page.
You can click the image you want to get the URL you need to copy into the IMG tags here.

I've in the attachments are some examples from the last riddle.

This is the following CC-MasterMind riddle: Which tiles I have choosen and how I placed them for the 3x3-tile landscape?

There are 3 rows (1, 2, 3) and 3 columns (A, B, c)

example:
If the start tile is placed in the middle of my mini landscape (name of the tile "D") , then it has the position: 2B (2.row and column B).

Some tiles have more than only one meeple (examples  :orange-meeple:+ :blue-meeple:  or  :yellow-meeple:+ :blue-meeple:+ :orange-meeple:  or  :black1-meeple:+ :violet-meeple:)

The following Meeple will show you the result of your guesses:
green   :green-meeple: - right tile - in correct row, column and orientation
red  :red-meeple: - wrong tile
violet    :violet-meeple: - right tile - wrong column and wrong row
blue  :blue-meeple: - right tile - in correct column
yellow    :yellow-meeple: - right tile - in correct row
black  :black1-meeple: - right tile - in correct orientation
orange   :orange-meeple: - right tile - in wrong orientation

News and Events / HiG facebook - the greates Landscape of Carcassonne
« on: February 17, 2017, 06:16:21 AM »
HiG at their facebook page:

HiG is asking for your greates landscapes of Carcassonne. They will put all photos together to make a photo album at facebook.
Quote from: 'HiG at facebook'
Hello,
we would like to upload all your Carcassonne landscapes again in a Facebook album. Can we also use your image for this? Of course, by naming or marking your name.
Best regards
your HiG team!

The first photo is from Paul - but I think that photo is not the finished landscape - it is more half way...

Here is the link to HiG facebook:
HiG facebook - need the perfect game round of Carcassonne

Quote from: 'HiG at facebook - in German'
Die schönsten Landschaften gesucht – zeigt uns Eure bisher beste Carcassonne-Partie!
Städte errichten, Flüsse erschaffen und Klöster erbauen ist Eure Welt? Dann zeigt uns doch einmal Eure bisher schönste, größte oder originellste Carcassonne-Landkarte und postet ein Bild in die Kommentare!
Quote from: 'HiG at facebook - translated text - in English'
Wanted: The most beautiful landscapes - please show us your best game of Carcassonne!
Is it your world to build and create cities, rivers and monasteries? Then please show us once your so far nicest, biggest or most original Carcassonne landscape and post a picture in the comments!

I think that would be great to "see" some of Pauls finished landscape and again Pauls bath with all the landscape tiles...
Also the big city with more than 800 points score...
And all of you - if you have great photos from your finished Carcassonne landscape or during the game...
Or perhaps some of our stacking meeple and landscape tiles...

Then please send the photos to HiG and tell them if they are allowed to use the photos for their album.

Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / Carcassonne Winter MasterMind - 2017-01
« on: January 04, 2017, 03:34:40 PM »
Is there interest for a small Carcassonne Winter MasterMind?

Quote from: 'quevy'
Here's the topic for your game.
...

All rules can be found here.
You can use the images on this link to make your predictions, using this code: [ img ]image link[ /img] (remove the spaces before img and /img).

 :red-meeple:: One of the Tiles is wrong.
 :blue-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct, but is oriented and positioned incorrectly.
 :black1-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct exact, oriented correctly, but in the wrong position.
 :yellow-meeple:: One of the Tiles is correct, oriented incorrectly, but in the correct position.
 :green-meeple:: One of the Tile correct, oriented in an exact manner, in exact position.

I have prepared a riddle with 4 different landscape tiles in a row. Instead of the rules from quevy - it is here possible that there are more than only one landscape tile with animals included.
Has anyone a suggestion?

This time it is an open game - each one who has interest can make his/her suggestion.

In the attachments is also the list of landscape tiles for the Carcassonne Winter Edition. In this list you see all the different landscape tiles. For Carcassonne Winter-MasterMind it is only important the different landscape tiles even if there are more than one tile from some landscape tiles in the real Carcassonne game.

As a reminder I will upload an example game with the standard CC-Edition.

And here is the link to the latest CC-Winter MasterMind game at CarcC - with the view of the Master:

« on: November 21, 2016, 01:12:18 PM »
The 5th fan-meeting at Burg Konradsheim - Sunday 20 November 2016

This year without me but with Ratz65 and Benny.

The fan-meeting was again a great day. Udo Schmitz (Carcassonne-on-Tour) organized this fan-meeting with Klaus-Jürgen Wrede.

Klaus-Jürgen Wrede signed tiles and games for the fans as always.

The gaming group from Worms introduced a selfmade big Carcassonne. The tiles are around 20 cm large and the Meeples are also large.

There was also a CC-Amazonas tournament.

The CarcF group was playing some games (forr example CC-Goldrush) and later they played a prototype of the next 10th big expansion for the CC II edition.

Here are some photos at CarcF:
