I'll claim x1 Ark of the Covenant, I've given up trying to locate a copy with the wooden ark over the plastic one.  ::)
They made a version with a plastic ark?

Yes, the first edition has a plastic ark and the second edition has a wooden ark with apparently nicer/shinier tiles as well. Here is a discussion on BGG about the different arks.

Thanks for all your efforts so far Yellow. I for one really appreciate all the help that members here are receiving from others lately in terms of getting their hands on hard to find Carcassonne stuff!

It's the least I can do for not winning the forum game.  :P

Seriously, though, I like doing it. The hunt has always been more enjoyable than owning and using the stuff I acquire. If you'd see my LEGO collection you'd blow a casket. Selling it, though and because so much of it is still in new condition I get my money back or maybe even make a small profit. Selling it cheap to get rid of it faster.

If anyone is interested, the vendor Spillskrinet in Norway have 2 copies of New World: http://www.spillskrinet.no/show.php?spillid=575
I can’t see if they will ship internationally, but I think so.

And we are grateful, Yellow :(y)
Today I got hold of two copies of the Castle here in Norway for €17 each!!! The two last copies I am afraid, and already spoken for.

Hi guys!

So, I just found a sale for 10 copies of Ark of the Covenant (Scandinavian / Finnish) for just under 13 Euro each. What you guys think. Should I take the offer?

And you're saying this only after I received my copy at doubled price? :)

Man! What do they have against the Ark of the Covenant in Sweden?! I'd hold out for a week or so and see if they'll pay you to take it away...

Only double? You don't want to know how much Dan and I paid for our copies before we heard about this Scandinavian black market.  :'(

OK, I paid more than double because of delivery, I am saying only for pure price for the game itself.

I know. Kinda sucks this is presented AFTER you guys bought it.  :-[

It could be, this was offered, because they saw a chance to get rid of it from stock. But then again, if they see it sells well all of a sudden, why lower the price?

It's quite an investment but not that bad if I can get these sold in a year.

On top of the cost of the game AND postage to the UK, I paid approximately double the cost above just for it to be allowed into the country!  >:(

Gotta love customs...  C:-) :(n)

Does anyone know what the current world record is for the most privately owned copies of Ark of the Covenant? A future challenge perhaps...  :meeple:
