Unofficial Rules / Re: Alternate rules for Darmstadt?
« on: July 04, 2020, 11:38:27 AM »
I kinda like the rules for the 2 tiles that act as cloisters. It could be a way for a different player to benefit from finishing them for another player.

The Darmstadium is rubbish, that's indeed just luck of the draw and getting 3 extra points.

Could be interesting for alternative rules though, never really thought about it

I know it was stated by HiG, but this goes against my main rule / tie-breaker for Carcassonne.
It's a visual game, so if something connects or not can be seen on the tiles.
Whenever I play with this expansion (not that often, but still), I treat it as 1 road

Ordered mine as well! Looking forward to receiving it!

Hmm.. seems like HiG have decided to more and more go down the route of re-releases/updates of older products, rather than fully new things.
We've seen the new Kinder of Carcassonne, and now Hunters and Gatherers...

As they say it will have revised rules I'll hold off on passing judgment, but as still. It's been a long time since we've seen a big expansion for Carcassonne itself. Maybe they want to focus more on other games or mini-expansions, which I can understand, but I'm not too sure yet about re-releasing older products with a revamped look

I think I've got a shrink wrapped copy of it laying around, I wonder how much I can get for that then?! €200 at least hahahaha

Great summary Big boss! Great to see them in so much detail!

I've been able to order several of these from HobbyWorld a few years back, except for the WheelOfFortune edition, which makes sense now as you stated they are more rare. Haven't seen any of them come up anywhere for sale; but would still like one to add to the collection ;D

The 3 expansions listed as Digital in the checklist, for the 'old art', are semi-offical fan-expansions. They were available for download on the old HiG website, although no longer there.
These would be to print yourself

News and Events / Re: New official Carcassonne Junior

I saw it on HiG's facebook the other day.
And I wasn't waiting for this. I only got Carcassonne Junior as I felt I needed it to complete my collection; am I now gonna have to buy a second one for that same reason? Hahaha

Hahaha, funny to see how they sometimes reuse these.
I've got the Carcassonne & Rio Grande tin combi box, but it's still in shrink, so never opened it to see these things

I am to all for counting it.
I like to think Carcassonne is a visual game. So a lot of times I can answer my own questions by looking what the game shows.
So with this to, as the meeple is showing in the set parameter

General / Re: Where can I find such extensions for Carc 2

It does look pretty good for a fanmade PnP!
Even made the Plague for C2!

U do wonder where they got the blank Russian tiles from, haven't seen that before. Looks cool!

Interesting, never seen any of these before.
Seems like someone is quick with doing these in the new art.
I checked HobbyWorld, but they don't have this listed there.

So yes, could you share the link to the add?  ;D

Which vesrion of Crop Circles do you think has a more potentially restrictive layout?
I think CC1 has a more restrictive layout, but CC2 I a bit easier to find

General / Re: Mini-Expansions - Which ones should I get?

Hi! And welcome to the forum (i see you're relatively new  :D)

One thing i love about Carcassonne is the collection value of the game. There are many many many expansions to hunt down and this has given me much joy over the (last) years.
As mentioned before, if you want to hunt down all expansions, Welcome again! You're a competitionist!

Some mini expansions i can recommend:
German Castles
German Monastaries (or the Dutch/Belgian ones)
German Cathedrals (great to use in combination with the Ferries)
Maps (different countries are available)
The Phantom (great for every game)

It can be good to check the profile page here on CC; this gives you a (now slightly outdated) list of all expansions/versions/etc available. There are versions of the base game not on there, but it does show you a nice list of (mini)expansions that there are. (and for me it worked against me as i became obsessed with using at a shopping list :P)

The first set op Russian promos are not really "evil", they don't really allow for much evil play against your opponent.
The second set does allow for more "evil play", so those might be good to keep in there.
I would add the Crop Circles, as they can be used nicely here.
And the River 2 adds a volcano for the Dragon
