oooohhh!!!
where did you buy cathars and crop circle I?!?

I snagged Cathars from the board game geek market; and an ebay seller offered me crop circles after I bought CSS from them. Slightly pricey in total, but not as bad as I was expecting. £18 for a new Cult Siege & Creativity seemed fairly low to say I couldn't see it for sale anywhere else.

In what shop you bought this? Maybe I also can order it from there?

And how much for the crops and cathar?

I love postman so much that I french kissed her! My girlfriend brought me this back from Russia:


It has a few interesting and unique features:

- back of the tiles:  it's a K instead of a C, for "каркассон".

- city of the Count is one BIG tile

- river II has river watermark

- corn circle I is included (!)

- cult expansion has spielbox watermark (!)

- it is CHEAP!!: about 15 euros for The Tower, Princess & Dragon, Count King & Robber and Corn Circle I

- Quality of the tiles is lower: colours differ slightly, they are difficult to unpunch and I find the corners are a bit too round... But for the price it's difficult to complain

I think, the Count tile is really nice. The lines indicate perfectly, where to lay the tiles without crossing over the city. Does if fit in size to the regular tiles in other language versions?

It seams to be slightly, slightly, smaller, but looks real good. I'm sure, you will have fun with it, when playing the Count. :(y)

Oh my... Great thing! I need to have it! What about thickness: Is it as thick as our standard tiles? And what does the back look like?


By the way: This weekend I received my order from Carcassonne Shoppe. Thank you Ted, I'm so happy! Now I'm proud to be able to announce that my Carcassonne collection is officially complete! Yay!

Hounk & Safari, indeed it's possible that there is a tiny difference in size (perhaps thickness also). When I'll have time I'll try to measure and will let you know. Right now we are playing and we don't notice the difference and enjoy the game.

The slightly smaller size might also come from the fact, that the artwork is printed in exactly the same size, but since there are no tile edges, which would also take up a little space, everything shrinks together a little bit. But like I mentioned before: I don't think, that really matters, it's negligible.
