The description of the bundle states it includes all 6 coaster sets, and 3 colour sets of the Big Meeples (6 Big Meeples per set)
The Big Meeples are available in 11 colours, and you can pick 3 of them in the bundle..

I like it! It's interesting to see what others might have in place to balance things out in a way!

I've got a house rule on Abbots. I usually use the C2 Abbot meeples for the Monestaries expansions. This way I limit these to 1 monestary per player. You can only use your abbot in a monestary once (unless it's removed by a different element in the game), and if you draw other monestaries later, you can only use them as cloisters.
In the beginning we've had 1 player get 4 monestaries in a game, making it feel unbalanced, so I put that in place (especially as I didn't have C2 Cor a while, but did have the abbot meeples)

Today I arrived in Argentina.
After not being allowed in, we managed to get in on an exception issued by the immigration officer, with the condition that we of course self isolate for 2 weeks (which we planned for)
Luckily I brought my trusty Travel Carcassonne box (base game+exp.1&2), Jaipur and a deck of cards.
So let's see how long those will last us!

I will be following the auction and plan on bidding if I see something of interst,; I love the idea!

On the first lot: Windrosen 1 is the rarer of the 2 versions.
I've had quite some issues finding this one a few years back! Later HiG made it available again in their webshop, but it is now no longer available from them.
A great start!
Good luck!

I've got the version without the wooden ark, and am a bit jealous now ;)
Where did you get it from if I may ask?

I've played this expansion only once, but we lived it!

I like the idea of these mini expansions being grouped together as a big expansion!
I was wondering the other day when expansion nr 11 Will come out. Under the big top came out quite a while back, and even though I like the mini/promotion expansions, I like the big expansions to!

If you look at the rules for the Catapult, there is the exact same image, but indeed in different colours and a catapult.
I would say it can indeed be from a fan expansion?

I'm pretty sure that is from The Catapult, the 7th big expansion from the old art.
It has not been reprinted in the new art, and has been stated to never be released in the new art.

Hope this helps!

General / Re: Traders and Builders Dutch edition

I agree with DrMeeple.
I've got a Dutch edition of Traders and Builders from around 2003, and this does not have a watermark on it.
Before the first big box, no expansions had watermarks.

I have just received my "undisclosed little something" for participating!

Thank you very much MeepleDrone!
It is very cool and I am now thinking if I will use it in my games or keep it separate as something special  ;D
Thank you again for this great quiz!

Got my Cundco delivery in today!

image host

Got 1 of each of the new maps, and of course some chips for them. And picked up a few copies of the Tollkeepers expansion as well.
Spiel '19 was in there, so i'm very happy to still call my Carcassonne collection complete :D

Although originally I only collected C1, I have started collecting C2 since the release of the new Big box.
This has resulted in various options available, as I have full sets in both art

However I am usually version specific, meaning I don't mix versions. If I want to play certain expansions that are only in C1, I will use the C1 Base game, and with the C2 Base game only go C2 expansions.
The phantom might be the only exception to that, but that could be as I don't see it as C1 exclusive

The 6th of December is the date Saint Nicolas died. This is where most celebrations come from, to honor his memory.
I never put my Christmas tree up before the 6th of December, as Sinterklaas (Saint Nicolas) is first. Only after that can I start working towards Christmas

The Marketplace / Re: Wts: need pricing help base,river,t&b,i&c,h&s, a&m

That's why I usually check the price history.
Of course some items can have sold for one of those ridiculous prices, but you can see all the previous sales, so it's easier to get an understanding of what a realistic market value is.

Or at least I think so  ;D,

I believe that is Sinscerly's avatar

I think it would be best to send him a quick PM, as he might have a higher resolution than what shows on the forum :)
