Carcassonne - Über Stock und Stein (across country)
« on: July 28, 2015, 12:42:10 AM »
In autumn there will come the next Carcassonne spin-off game:

Carcassonne - Über Stock und Stein

"über Stock und Stein" is a German phrase many translators says "over hill and dale" - but in this game you don't have hills or dales. It is more like a phrase for "across country".

Scott has posted at CarcC facebook some more information

and from TricTrac France are also some information

and at the Homepage from Klaus-Jürgen Wrede is also a short information

The graphics artist is: Doris Matthäus

Looks like the French decided to call it "Over Hills/Mountains and down Dales" too.

In English, the phase "Over Hills and Dales" is a common phrase to describe the country-side.  The artwork looks turn of the last century too.

Either way, the art work looks great  :(y)

So it's a rustic, countryside version of the original. My first impression is that this isn't a really 'strong' theme that screams out to be bought and played, but I do like rustic things, so we'll see.

So is it just me or is it strange that they decide to upgrade the graphics (unlike most of us want), and now they decide to make a new spin off with a bit of old graphics?

You're right, but considering the scarce information given in the provided links, there are no sticks and stones in the game as well, which would be the literally translation of the phrase.

I assume, this was the project, you have been proof reading recently? ;)

Yes I did the proof reading of the rules. And really there are no hills and no dales in that game.

I am very curious about the rules of this, but above all I want to know those to see if some can be adapted to the original game to create other fan-expansions.
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Yes, I like the look of the box too. Disappointed that they didn't include someone riding around on a pig in the background though... :(

Interesting that only two years in and they've already stopped doing "Around the World" games. I also am disappointed that the Star Wars one isn't releasing this year considering The Force Awakens is coming out December. That's two misses. This game looks potentially interesting, but it also reminds me a lot of Kids of Carcassonne.

Have they definitely stopped doing the Around the World series? I thought maybe the next one had just been delayed because of these other projects.

There will be other "Around the world" games, I know of two different ideas, they are delayed.

On the homepage of Klaus-Jürgen Wrede he says www.kjwrede.de :
