General / Carcassonne with Teams of 2 (or more players)
« on: October 14, 2017, 05:04:01 AM »
I guess a few of us have more than one base game or equivalent (I have the wheel of fortune and soon will also have the 2017 big box) allowing teams to play, 2 vs 2, where the team both use the same colour meeples.

I'm planning a Red vs Blue game with 4 players. 14 vs 14 meeples....although, I could add in a plastic meeple per player from the 10th Anniversary edition so that we all get a 'phantom'.

Has anyone else played team Carcassonne games?  Which rules / expansions did/did not work for you?

Other Games / Talisman
« on: August 31, 2017, 12:40:06 PM »
It's over 30 years old...but I have just discovered Talisman, 2nd edition.  It was a game at the holiday let that we stayed in a couple of weeks ago.  Total die based luck but it is enjoyable and my daughter is totally hooked.  Who knew I had a D&D daughter?

Her favourite character is Prophetess.
I've played half a dozen characters (Assassin, Thief, Minstrel, Witch Doctor, Ghoul & Wizard) and don't have a favourite yet.  I'll try the mighty Troll next.

We have bought the base game, the Adventure expansion and the White Dwarf #115 expansion - all 2nd edition.

Anyone else play Talisman...or have any 2nd edition expansions (In English) for sale?

I'll consider swapping classic Carcassonne expansions (just ask - it may be available!) or cash.

I have a full set of 72 base game original art tiles for sale.  Ideal for anyone whose tiles are showing signs of wear.

Only £8.00 plus signed for postage.

( I also have the 40 meeples 8xeach Red, Blue, Yellow, Black & Green.  I'll throw these in with the 72 tiles for a further £3.00 )

PM me if interested.

Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / The Missing 73rd Tile?
« on: May 28, 2017, 03:49:07 AM »
In the beginning there was "The Concept".

Next there was the cunning decision to use the magic number "72".  One can print in batches of 12 and it is a number ideal for 2, 3, 4 but not 5 [ we'll fix that later ] players.

Then there was the "Play Testing" and "The Rules" and betwixt and between there was the "Cock-up".  For someone maketh the decision that there must be a tile on the table at the commencement of proceedings.  This then leaves 71 playable tiles which is devisable by 'not-a-lot'.

Thus the question to follow all the not-getting-to-the-point-quickly-enough is this.........

What design should the 'other' tile, the missing 73rd tile have been?

I can't offer a Spiel de Jahres trophy, but there are a few things that I have from which a prize can be chosen and posted to the forumee who posteth the tile design that I agree is the one that I would have included back in the day.

(Obviously the rule to have a tile on the table could've been over-ruled - but that is a completely different discussion IMHO)

So, what sayeth the populous of Carcassonne Central?

I just picked by a RGG version of the base game with the stone edition scoring track. It is the first time that I have seen one. Is it particularly rare?

Good luck with 3 and 4 player games. I much prefer multi player games of Carcassonne.

Anyone organising a UK meet to practice 4 player games prior to the UK champs?

Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / Saturday Telegraph pub quiz question 18
« on: February 05, 2017, 01:56:23 AM »
Which game is inspired by, and is named after, a walled city in the south of France?

(Perhaps not the hardest question for members of this forum! But as the 20 questions are graded from easy to difficult it is considered harder than most for the average quizzer!)

General / Should a Mega Game have barns?
« on: January 28, 2017, 12:15:51 PM »
I have a mega game coming up and I'm thinking of using the barns.  It will allow the meeples to be used for cities and roads instead of laying around for 2 hours.

However, I have seen others say they don't use barns.

What's your advise lads and lasses?

Online Games and Competitions / Playing against 5 on JCZ
« on: September 18, 2016, 10:28:54 AM »
Just had a mad moment and challenged the 5 computer opponents on Jcloisterzone.

Managed an easy win once I completed a Cathedral city which I shared with 2 other colours.

I have I&C, T&B, A&M, Cathers, Besiegers, Russian Promo, King, Festival, Catapult tiles, GQ mini and winter edition tiles in the game and using the City of Carcassonne as the start tile.

Hi Dan,

As I understand it, us competitive types have opted in to viewing tournament posts.  If I was new to the site and a competitor - how would I see details of competitions?

I guess we are saying that the majority of members are not competitors so it is easier for you to opt us in than them out.

Just my random thought for today.

regards Rich

The Marketplace / A single barrel trade token needed

I have lost a trade token.  Really annoyed.  Does anyone have a spare barrel trade token that I could buy?

General / Spinoff headtohead QF#1 - Kids of Carcassonne vs The Castle
« on: June 12, 2016, 03:03:17 PM »
Kids of Carcassonne received a bye in the opening round as it was the remaining version in the hat after the other 10 had been drawn against each other.  The best 2 runners-up H&G and New World got through as best losers.  It is now winner takes all in each poll.

Carcassonne is a great tile laying game with infinite expansionability.  It has been reduced to a travel version, reinvented as Carcassonne II, colour changed for the Winter Edition and had luck added in the Wheel of Fortune.  But these are all different flavours with the same playability as the vanilla version we all love and return to again and again.

Variants on a theme are all very well but the tile laying concept can be taken much further, and has been by Hans im Gluck and other companies too.  This series of polls is for the forum to offer thoughts on which is their preferences and why.  I am only including spinoffs by Hans im Gluck through various distributers in this series.

The poll is open for 7 days and then another will be offered up for comments.  It may well be that the 3rd option gets most votes but it'll be the spinoff with the majority that progresses to the next round.
