General / Re: Acquire all expansions, but in what artwork?
« on: April 22, 2019, 09:10:27 PM »
PieceOfYou, Welcome to the forums! First, let me say that I am jealous you got your hands on Big Box 5. Of all the things I am missing that can still probably be gotten this is highest on my wishlist. I feel as though BB5 fills in some of the gaps I have without being crazy expensive. As for whether you collect only old art or new art? Well that's a tough one. I think collecting the new art stuff is easier but either choice has its rarities. The old art has the likes of the Cathars, Corn Circles I, Besiegers, and the Tunnels. Meanwhile the new art has the Spiel promo tiles from the last 5 years. Best I could honestly say is to just collect what you can and enjoy it as much as you can!

Wow for 26 Euros, I would pick it up and I hate the new art :(n).  I haven't seen it for less than $60 in the US.

I picked it up at Miniature Market for $40 on Thanksgiving Day 2 months ago.

If said league would take place sooner rather than later then you can count me in.  :red-meeple:

*ugh* I normally love the postman. In fact I got my copies of the new German Monasteries and Barber Surgeons as well as a set of white meeples. Unfortunately that wasn't everything I ordered and I am missing some of what I ordered. I am missing a set of orange meeples and more importantly my Spiel 18' promo tile. Now I admit when I placed the order I tried to order a ringmaster in gray, orange, and white. Of course Cundco told me they didn't have ringmasters in alternate colors (as I kind of expected) and thus offered me a voucher for the small price I paid for them. That's fine. That little hiccup shouldn't have impacted the rest of my order though.

I've already emailed Cundco and so we'll see what happens next.

Thank you for the update. I just placed my order. I even requested some ringmasters in alternate colors. We'll see if they can deliver! Even if they can't though my order still met the minimum for the Spiel tile even if you subtract the additional cost of the extra ringmasters.  :(y)

Well it can delay your order a bit, as it is not a regular order ???
I had that once

If getting those ringmasters in alt colors means a small wait then that’s fine by me.

Bueller... Bueller...

Sorry, but does anyone have answer? If nothing else, when their December event rolls around I'd love to get the new mini-expansions with the Spiel promo, and if nothing else, hopefully a gray Ringmaster!

Hmm, I appreciate the suggestion and they (Meeplesource) do seem to cover the alternate colors in totality (Orange, Pink, Purple, Brown, White, Natural and then some) with the inclusion of a Ringmaster but they don't have grey. They also charge more than Cundco (even with the conversion of Euros to USD). So... if I'm picking up other stuff at Meeplesource those meeple sets would make a good add-on, especially the colors that even Cundco doesn't offer like Salmon, Sky, and Lime otherwise I'm better of getting them through Cundco.

General / Alt Color Ringmasters?
« on: October 29, 2018, 06:26:16 AM »
Quick question that hopefully someone can answer.

Does anyone know yet if Ringmasters are available in the wood alternate colors yet? I tried a search on this forum and could only find posts as recent as April saying not yet. At the very least I'd like to get a gray Ringmaster but I'd also be curious if the Ringmaster is finally included with the wood alternate color sets yet? I know they have Ringmasters in the transparency sets but I'm not interested in those at the moment.

Official Rules / Re: 21st century CAR
« on: October 26, 2018, 02:53:48 AM »
I've always enjoyed the CAR in PDF form as it made for easy consumption right from my iPad. Recently though its age has been showing since there's been a distinct lack of rules for German Castles and the Halflings within. I do feel that a wiki is a good way to go but I've often had a slightly different idea.

I often thought it would be amazing to have a mobile/web app optimized for phones and tablets where it could not only show you all the rules for any edition of the game but more so you could somehow select just the expansions you are using in your current particular game of Carcassonne and then it would only show you the rules and interactions for those expansions saving you from having to wade through all the rest. Given the current state of this wiki I do not know if this idea is a natural step in its evolution or if it is even possible but I'm excited at the idea of having something that is up to date and complete.

Ok, so after reading the English rules that Decar posted I had to do a double take. Those English rules said it is possible to have a negative score but my understanding was that per ZMG's translation that wasn't possible. So I looked up the English rules for the Tower (in the new art style) and sure enough it says you can't have a negative score. However, I then decided to look up the rules for the Bazaars and sure enough those rules say you CAN have a negative score.

I can accept a publisher getting a translation wrong but it doesn't help when they're not consistent at the same time. :)

Also I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those tiles but if I purchase the two new mini-expansions when they become available Tuesday what then will there be that I could purchase in December to nab this promo as a gift?  ???

I see another Cundco order coming post Essen '18...  >:D

You and me both. I just gotta figure out if I will be able to also get a "spare" grey Ringmaster!

US player here. I've walked into Barnes & Noble, Target, and the former Toys'R'Us and here is something I've noticed. They all carried the base game (in the new art, obviously) but none of them carried ANY of the expansions. I know this point brings about a double-edged sword. The people buying Carcassonne at one of these major stores won't likely know about the expansions nor of any events happening around them. At the same time those likely to know about any would be events are likely to be those who know about the expansions. With that in mind though here are some of my recommendations:

Maybe try working with major retailers to try to get them to carry some of the popular expansions.
Work with FLGSs to have learn/play events where a chosen (either by FLGS or the publisher) expansion that customers can learn to play and even purchase.
Work with FLGSs to have organized play events (think local tournaments), something Asmodee is known for. During these events offer a mini-expansion or similar as a prize to the winner(s).
Cundco currently does offer a lot of mini-expansions not available anywhere else for purchase. Not a lot of people outside of this forum know about Cundco. Even those that do know about it though may at times find it cost prohibitive especially when the shipping can add up. So I might suggest (at least in the states anyway) working with a local publisher (like Asmodee / Z-Man Games) to offer more of these mini-expansions and other bits locally. Also having a website that is by default in the customers native language (in the case of the US, this would be English). Yes Cundco does have an English language option but it's not 100%. Sure the parts that matter are in English but still it'd be preferred to have everything in English.
I know that HiG has a big presence at Spiel every year and for the last few years they offered a convention exclusive promo tile. Perhaps they'd consider working with Asmodee in America to do similar things here, either at Gen Con or similar.

That's all that I can think of for now. If I had to narrow that list down to one thing (especially something relevant to the original topic) I'd say that I'd love to see events offer something I can't get anywhere at the same time.

If you look at the product images on the product page itself you see there is a slot for all the tiles, a bigger slot for all the meeples but then there are two smaller slots left over but for what?  :o ???

Decar, I'm quite jealous of the fact you got the Time Traveler promo card for Unfair. Unfair is one of my favorite new games, so much so that I've been playtesting the upcoming expansion. I know there are ways for me to still get that promo I just haven't done so yet.  :)
