It already feels like a long time ago, but of all the forum members who had a birthday in February only one of them can say that Decar used his 4600th post to wish him a happy birthday. Who was this?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

Wow, so you won on every feature but Jack won the game overall?! TheSteve will be delighted!

Just goes to show that the gold really doesn't like you thodekey!

Which forum member expressed their excitement at the prospect of attending the Carcassonne "Scottish Championships" in September, but then fell at the first hurdle when they realised they would be in Spain at the time of the competition?

With 2574 replies and over 490 thousand views, our "I love the postman" thread is still going strong after more than four years! Back in August, one forum member in particular was especially pleased to see his postman after he won a prize draw at a boardgame event and had four games including 13 Clues, Flagdash, Jorvik and Legendary Inventors delivered to him. Who was this?

Shock horror - you don't like the count expansion?

Does anyone? (apart from The Steve)

My Cundco order arrived today!

Think I'm getting close to being complete again...

We first heard about a new expansion - the Fruit Bearing Trees - back in March and spent a while discussing the various pros and cons of its release amongst other things (such as Cundco's spare parts service and Decar's Uncle's 80 pots of Quince Jam). One eagle-eyed forum member however spotted two of Monty Python's Knights who say "Ni" hiding in a bush on one of the tiles. Who was this?

Are you talking about the magazine's?

I would guess so. The Carcassonne Almanac was a special magazine which came with a republished version of Cathars.

I think I have one somewhere, but it's not for sale. Sorry.

PS - I'm still waiting for mine too so you're not alone! :)
But did they send it already to you?

I just checked my emails again and it was dispatched from them on the 30th November.

The DHL link says that it was loaded onto the delivery van and will probably be delivered last Friday ???

Let's change in JCZ that the meeples stand on the trade goods >:D and that they only stand on trade goods when Dan is using it ;D

It wouldn't be the first time someone "modified" JCloisterZone for my benefit...

I made an order late November which has gone through through and is with me now, however I made one at the beginning of this month and although it has been paid via Paypal (and have a Paypal invoice), it hasn't appeared on my orders on the Cundco account page. Any others experiencing the same? I assume it might be some form of Christmas rush!

This seems to happen every year. They coast along through the year, providing a useful service to a large number of customers. Then December happens and they start giving away Spiel xx tiles with all orders over a certain value. Suddenly they have a huge surplus of orders to get through and the level of service drops through the floor. It's a shame, but it's to be expected. And to be honest, I'd rather have an order delayed by a few days or even a week if it includes a special tile (especially one I paid €0,01 for!) than have it arrive on time and not include anything special.

I think we need to respect and understand that this isn't like ordering from Amazon. HiG/ Cundco are a small company and this is the sort of thing to expect at their busiest times!

Plus of course, don't forget that the postal service is also run off it's feet at this time, which is bound to introduce certain delays, especially with international orders.

PS - I'm still waiting for mine too so you're not alone! :)

Well they are most in the corner, I have seen people put it on them just they didn't think about it.
So mostly when they do I move it. But wouldn't declare them cheating :))

Sure, if it's an accident or they didn't think about it then that's fine. But if they keep doing it, and it's on purpose then I would feel very differently about it. It's  ::) rather than >:(.

Do you mean to say that this is all I needed to do to stop you bugging me to play with you for all these years?


Who made a big announcement on the forums in October, by posting an image of two phantom cases and a red meeple standing on a Carcassonne landscape?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

Have you come across any players who have tried to conceal the trade goods icon with a meeple or builder?   I have seen it happen once or twice, particularly with the low-count commodities of Silk/Fabric and Wheat.

No, I've never known anyone play like this, and I would say it is against the spirit of the game.

In Carcassonne, all information is known based on what's on the table in front of you. If one person is trying to hide something from his or her opponent(s) to give themselves an advantage then I would see this as cheating and wouldn't play with that person again.

I recently bought a copy of the Mueller Tin version of Carcassonne primarily for Die Belargerer...

Not strictly related to what you're asking, but where did you find one of those?
