I got my advent order in today  ;D
Quite a small one this time, as I only really was looking for the new Peasants Revolt expansion.
I also got some more giant meeples, and a set of the new art coasters, which were funnily enough wrapped in a copy of the Dutch rules for Carcassonne The City.
I doubt Cundco know I'm Dutch as I live in the UK, but that would be just a silly coincidence ;)

They haven't mentioned it, and I guess there's only 1 way to find out  ;)
I doubt they have kept the list from the Spiel sale and compare the addresses, but who knows  :P

Agreed, I think it's a nicely put together box of goodies and stuff which is a good one for their November/December sale. But I also don't think it's a reprint of the Phantom

A second copy of the Catapult to have enough catapult tokens for each player  ;D

They indeed have more rounded edges, which only got quite noticeable with this expansion.
The colour of the grass stands out most to me. It's quite a bit lighter green compared to any other C2 expansion.
(And compared to the C1 German Cathedrals its massive)

Official Rules / Re: WikiCarpedia - German Cathedrals 2nd edition
« on: October 29, 2020, 01:32:32 PM »
Depends, is this for scoring the road? Or scoring for the cathedral?
For the road, it would be 8 points (4 tiles, 2 per tile),
For the cathedral, it would be 4

And to get back to the initial topic:
I must say I think the removal of that note actually makes things clearer for me. I read it as that the cathedral tile is only counted once for these, but it is aiming at the individual segments of the road on the tile. Meaning that a road starting and ending at the cathedral tile is counted as a road once. It makes so much sense, that having the note confuses me more. So I'm happy it was removed in the new print  ;D


Another thing I noticed today:
It is the same in both versions of the rules, but the rules state for endscoring:
"At the end of the game, all unfinished roads leading to cathedrals and all unfinished cathedrals give you points. Each highwayman and each archbishop gives you 1 point for each road tile leading to the cathedral"
I read this as the road tiles giving points, but the actual cathedral tile not giving any points at the end?

I don't see this change in the rules of the new edition of the rules tbh.
It states that 'the 3 or 4 roads segments on the cathedral tile are counted separately', which I believe was in the rules for the 1st edition as well

Nice find! I believe that one is becoming more difficult to find, so congrats!

Today I was happy to see the postman, as he brought me my Cundco order:


Got the new Maps, German Cathedrals, the new version of Hunters&Gatherers and added a pack of mega meeples to get my free bag. (Although I've got enough of those laying around already that I never use plastic bags for shopping anymore)

We'll be giving H&G a try tonight, and the Spiel '20 tile has been sleeved and added to it's friends  ;D

I don't use the green in the Spiel 16 tile as field.
As the city around it does not have city walls next to the green, it would leave the city unfinished in my opinion, so a farmer would not even score points.

(And I'm sure HiG never thought this much about the tile, so perhaps it's not something to take too serious hahaha)

Official Rules / Re: River & Start Tile

If I play with any river, I usually leave out the starting tile. So we don't use it at all

Interesting....
And also 2 new maps, both USA.
I guess these will be available in a few days as part of Spiel 20?

I've been looking around as well, but no success.
Haven't been able to find a retail seller, nor a second hand website for Iran. Who knows, one day we might come across one!
