These expansions are getting ridiculous.  At this point, they're out of good ideas and trying to milk you out of your money.

I think my collection is complete with the German castles. Adios!

I have to agree that Duncan90 does have a point. 

With the original format base game and all box expansions 1 through 9 now out of print with Z-man games it seems inevitable that there will be no more “boxed”  expansions for this game in the original format.   :'(

I can imagine that the single small format tile sheets will still come out in Nation themed format for the monasteries (available only by mail order) but these introduce no new significant game play so have no appeal for me.

If HiG had plans to the contrary then I would expect that they would have dropped some vague hint to “expect something for the original Carcassonne sometime soon”   If anyone has picked up on something like this then please share. 

Personally I am still having more fun than you can “shake a stick at" by plodding away at my own expansions.   :@ :@

I also have more spare tiles put by for making expansions than even Paul would want to admit to.   :)

The Carcassonne-on-Tour team was testing the possible working dress for the exhibition "modell-hobby-spiel" for Leipzig. They will present the new spin-off game "Carcassonne - Über Stock und Stein".

I just tried it in Essen. Due to my "No Carccassonne Spin-Off policy" (I don't own any and don't want to), I really wanted to dislike it but I failed: This game is good!

The mechanism that allows you to "walk the trails" if you extend a road is cool: It makes the roads more valuable. Also, I like that the one that closes a city gets to choose first one of the fruit tokens, even though both players score. I played against my girlfriend and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this game.  :(y)

As I said, it's a good game but I will maintain my "No Carccassonne Spin-Off policy" because I have just too many games, and I feel that this one (or any other Carc Spin-Offs I'd buy) would end up sitting on a shelf, unfortunately. I own already all Carcassonne expansions for the base game and this offers me more than enough replay value.

I pass.  :)

I have updated the Sizing Information for Carcassonne - über Stock und Stein.

(The official name for zman games is: Carcassonne - over Hill and Dale - but in German the name of the game is not "Carcassonne - über Berg und Tal")

Saw this on Twitter this morning.  I hadn't appreciated that ueSuS was a 'Limited Edition' does this mean it will only receive a single print run?  :(

It's the edition for the bavarian ministry of health. At the moment there is no infomation whether there will be more print runs for them.
There are extra Turkish rules and it's another box. The game pieces are exact the same.

Thanks, I could look at photos of euSuS all day long; it is very nice.  My DHL order is at least in the UK now, but it is not delivered today :(
