Those are recognised by HiG, and have been printed as official tiles.
Not stickers.

But if we are to have la Porxada on the list, I will campaign to have the British Moustaches on the list to! Recognised by Carcassonne Central, and signed by Klaus  :o

Translators are great, but this is still an English speaking forum, and to help everyone in understanding the conversation, it is preferred to keep it that way.
In private messages any language can be used of course, but the (public) forum is English spoken

We all have our own view on what we want to collect, and what we are not interested in, and that's fine!
For a long time I was not interested in the new artwork, but when the big box 6 was announced, I started to be interested, and started to collect the new art as well.
Still the old art will have the most expensive items, as there are more exclusive expansions, which are often hard to find and definitely more expensive. I was lucky by finding the Müller box in Austria on a second hand website. Still in seal! The owner didn't know it was rare, so got it for a good price.

It is indeed a much debated and always interesting topic to discuss.

I think it is always depending on what you feel appropriate to spend, and prices change a lot over time.
it is difficult for me to say what i spent the most on. I once bought a box full of Carcassonne items, including some rare items (that was why i bought it), such as the CC1, Le Sac, Cathars, and lots more. I spent around €200 on the box, but sold a lot of items on, so made some money back from that. So i can't really say how much i've really spent on those items.

I think the most i've spent would be on the 2nd set of Russian tiles. Funnily enough i found 1 of the tiles separately, and had 3 out of 4 Russian tiles collected.
However, i did want that last tile, and i found a deal for the second set together for about €40 i think. I think that is the most i've spent tle by tile.
Most i've spent on 1 item is the Carcassonne Limited Edition (Rio Grande edition), the golden box.
I've bought that from the US, so spent around €100 with the shipping to the UK.

(and i think for some forum members, the recent Carcassonne Limited Collectors Edition will easily be the most expensive item they've ever bought - €649)

I think that Cundco have found an issue that seems to be costing them a bit..

They now state on the website that the Carcassonne Maps can only be ordered on their own, in a maximum of 5.
I guess that the shipping is more costly for them if they need to combine it with other products.
When i ordered mine it was possible to combine, and i got it in a rectangular box with a smaller box taped to it with the other products.

I think the order they are in are correct from when they have been released.
The Spiel Doch Mini Expansion doesn't really have a good name, so i would suggest to keep it as is.

And Carcassonne Safari would go with the rest of the Around the World series. I'm not sure where Carcassonne Maps: Germany could go? Or is it not enough of an expansion to list?

I'm on the case. Just give me a year or two to get around to it...

i know it hasn't even been close to a year or two, but with more recent releases, would it be possible for any of the Admins to update the profile section with the following?
- Spiel '18 tile
- German Monastaries (New Art)
- The Barber Surgeons (New Art)
- Carcassonne Around the World - Safari
- Spiel Doch mini expansion
- German Castles (New Art)
- Carcassonne Maps - Germany (New Art)
Please not the Special Limited Edition because my OCD won't allow me to now buy it to uphold my complete 'Owns' Collection

A bit unexpected, but today the postman decided to visit me once more!

The map is printed on quite strong material, and is looking nice!
It has a QR code at the bottom, that states to lead to both German and English rules, although currently only German are actually available :P
But the English version has been announced, so then that will be fixed :)

Official Rules / Re: Can the fairy be with several Meeples?
« on: March 19, 2019, 05:52:09 AM »
According to the CAR, that's right.
In the original HiG rules, the fairy is placed next to a specific follower, Accor to ZMG rules, it is on the tile.
I'm hesitant on following the wikicarpedia, as this is a fan-made version of the rules.
I'll check my rule books from the expansions later today at home.

I think it can be just a difference that was made in translation, or even version, so in the end I guess it can be up to the player(s) to decide which to follow

Official Rules / Re: Can the fairy be with several Meeples?

My thoughts where the same
The fairy is assigned to a tile, and benefits every meeple on that tile.
The fairy will prevent the dragon from moving onto the tile, and will provide 1 point per meeple of a player on that tile at the beginning of their turn
Additionally it gives an extra point to completed features that include the tile the fairy is on

The event is the 29th-31st of March, and it says afterwards it will be available via their webstore.
So I would expect it on cundco from the Monday after

Hi all!

I've just seen an announcement from HiG that they are releasing the Castles in Germany in the new artwork!
Will be available at Spiel Doch, and online as per usual

You see them often without the tiles, and just the software.
With the tiles having something unique on them, this was something I still wanted to add to my collection.
So I was very happy to find this one, and for a very good price :)

My sister came over to visit today, and she brought gifts!
Well, more something I ordered in holland and had delivered to her so she brought it with her

Was finally able to find one of these actually with the tiles!
The seller didn't know what I was asking about, but he did tell me there was something else with the pc game, and it was what I was looking for  ;D
