News and Events / Re: Official one player rules!!
« on: April 18, 2020, 05:10:30 AM »
Yeah, saw the announcement on Facebook.
I've had a quick read through the rules and its an interesting concept tbh
I like how they gave it a twist with the counting. Might give it a try at one point

Official Rules / Re: Is this combo legal? (Bridges, Castles & Bazaar)
« on: April 02, 2020, 01:50:56 PM »
Depends on a few things.

1. When was the road next to the left castle completed? Shouldn't you have gotten those points with that castle?
2. Is the road next to the top castle completed? If so, same question as above.
3. When was the road to the right of the top castle finished? Same as above

Other than these roads, it could be that you get the points for the city 4 times.
Btw, I count the city as 26 points (12 tiles + 1 shield). Or are your lines covering a second shield?

I might have a spare of the Dutch monestaries, but not sure. I'll have a look when I'm back home. No idea when that will be currently, but when I'm back I'll let you know  :)

Meepledrone, you beat me to it!
I think the Plague in C2 now would be a great stunt from HiG  ;D

All jokes aside, it would be nice is HiG could refer to such a global event with a commemorative tile, maybe not even the Spiel 20 tile but stand alone?

I hadn't realised that having the meeples in 11 different colours was required. :@

Unfortunately, for the worst amongst us (including myself), yes...

I'll probably be ordering them in separate orders, maybe wait until something else comes out and add the big meeple sets to that

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!

General / Re: Charity Auction
« on: March 03, 2020, 01:46:42 PM »
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?

General / Re: Tile search

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
« on: January 23, 2020, 12:35:06 AM »
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!
