I think the Catapult is the less of the evil, so I don't even own a copy of the Dice Game.

General / Re: Worst Carcassonne expansion to date
« on: January 13, 2019, 08:39:24 AM »
There are a few that I don't like.
1. The catapult component of the Catapult. I, too, think the tiles are good.
2. The Count. You pretty much always need to check with everyone when someone is about to score. In a 3-player game, an hour-long game is now 4 hours.
3. Bridges, Castles & Bazaars. Echoing from above, Castles are so easy to forget and Bazaars interrupt the flow so counter-intuitively.
4. The half-sized and double-sized tiles. Caused so much trouble interpreting interactions with other expansion.
5. Messengers are not that bad, but whenever your score, you'll want to see which score-marking meeple on the scoreboard can give you a message.
6. Ferries. Just not enough incentive to put more effort on the not-so-interesting roads, especially when compared to the Inns.
7. Japanese Temples. If a modern convention centre does not blend in, how could buildings on the other side of the world?

Having finished the list, I realize that these are the bad expansions, in my opinion, from the worst to the least bad. I like all the other expansion that I have.

site is hosted under US jurisdiction

Did a quick search and found this.
I think this means the the US claims that this site is under its jurisdiction. This claim is not necessarily exclusive.
Is the server of this site based in the US?

That's a tough question...
I guess my answer would be the souvenir of the Abbey tournament (a single Abbey tile with a normal back). That tile always reminds me how not creative I am and never had the idea of mixing the abbey with other normal tiles. That's a genius idea.
Now, not every forum member has a souvenir like this of limited amounts, so I'll confine my answer to the commercially available items or those used to be. It's my blue meeple.

Depending on the pricing of one of these bags I'd be interested as well.

MrNumbers and I played both games today. Yay for the ice-breakers!

Now the game..
Early in the game I thought it was OK to trap a meeple of MrNumbers' so that he would have few meeples to steal points from me. That didn't work out so well.
MrNumbers got more points than I, so I guess I failed.

Thank you, MrNumbers, for the games! Good luck to you in the following games.

Surely a Halfling from Halfling would be a Quarterling?
Nice one!
