I mean Carcassonne maybe rest in peace for a long time... Another spin offs or something like that but the original should arrives to an end...

You think? People are still discovering Carcassonne for the first time even now. And enjoying it too! If something still has life left in it then there is no reason to give it an early bedtime!

Carcassonne needs a break.

The German Castle tiles are probably easiest to break. If you did it perfectly you could end up with two "half tiles" that are exactly the same size and shape as other full tiles. Nobody would find that confusing. >:D

Ratz65 has posted on german forum new informations about the anniversary - here the translation:

Quote from: Ratz65
I've already spoken to Moritz about it. The anniversary is not celebrated until 2021.
2001 was Carcassonne Game of the Year.
Besides, I am already in contact with Moritz about what could happen for the anniversary :D

So we still have a year to think about ideas for carcassonne.
I am looking forward to the anniversary year 2021!

Sounds like it's all happening at CarcF! Good for you ;) :(y)

Well done and congratulations on this wonderful quiz, and huge thanks to Meepledrone for orchestrating it all! While I haven't been answering the questions (most of them are far too complicated for a simple purist like me) I have enjoyed checking in to see all the little jokes and "conversations"...

Merry Christmas to everyone at Carcassonne Central! And a happy new year to follow :)

Hey Rosco. Good luck with this initiative. I hope it brings in a lot of money for your noble and worthwhile causes.

In all likelihood, the majority of any money raised here will be through people wanting to get hold of the rarer, more valuable items that they don't already have. An auction gives them more control in this respect as they can simply bid very high to ensure they get what they're after. A raffle is more random of course, but people can still buy extra tickets if they want to improve their chances of winning. With this in mind, an auction is likely to bring most money but I think probably better to do it publically rather than blind.

Good luck!

I appreciate you thinking of me jungleboy.

Chooselife actually came up with a pretty good "being punched in the face" themed dice game that would be my preference, but it's a close second...

Hope you're doing well my friend!

Hi Andrew, and welcome to the forums!

Thanks for taking the time to explain this in person.

Best wishes,

Almost certainly not. It's the same thing as you sometimes see on Amazon with third party sellers who don't want to remove their item and re-add it, for example if they're going on holiday and don't want anyone to order anything of theirs while they're away as they won't be able to fulfil it, so put a crazy shipping price on their thing to stop anyone from buying it.

As for why boardgameextras would do this, I'm not sure. But it's certainly nothing to do with Brexit as thankfully we're still in the EU at the moment and can continue to enjoy the benefits that this membership brings.

JackFace has been busy! Thanks Jack. And thanks to Rosco and Sinscerly for playing their games too.

We still have three matches left to be played before we continue. PMs going out shortly! C:-)

Looking forward to round 9 when we have all caught up.


JackFace and Rosco are due to play this evening. I haven't heard back from laplazadecarcassonne yet, but I'm sure I will do soon. Any news from anyone else?

Yes, this is a problem that a lot of people have reported as it can really spoil the game for so many reasons. :(

The official ruling is that, when using this special scoreboard, you may pretend that St. Nicholas is actually Santa Claus and/ or Father Christmas and vice versa. Hopefully this will assist with your enjoyment of the game. :(y)

Hi all.

If there is sufficient interest then I am happy to continue with the tournament. There's only so much I can do in order to facilitate the playing of the games though, so unless everyone else is 100% onboard then we will struggle to get to the end with all games played. It just gets messy if we leave games unplayed.

Outstanding games to be played:

R6: Sinscerly vs. MrNumbers

R7: Sinscerly vs. JackFace

R8: Rosco vs. JackFace
R8: MrNumbers vs. TheSteveAllen
R8: LaplazadeCarcassonne vs. danisthirty

I will be in touch with LaplazadeCarcassonne and will hopefully get our match played before the end of this week. It is entirely down to me that our match was never played earlier. He was very flexible in terms of scheduling our match previously but I let him down on two separate occasions for reasons that I won't go into here...

I would be very grateful to anyone else who has an outstanding match if they could get in touch with their outstanding opponents so that we can get things back on track within a sensible timeframe.

Good luck everyone!

Cool cool. If it works out any cheaper for you I'm happy for you to send them in a roll to me in the UK, then I can fold and forward on. Guess we'll have to see how it works out.

I would prepare yourself to be ticked off in that case. I would be very surprised if they drop any Spiel 19 tiles in with their orders just for the sake of it. In previous years, as you know, tiles left over from Essen have been kept back for some special offer that usually starts in early December. Perhaps you could wait for the maps until then?
