With 40 votes cast, this poll was a close one. Twenty-one people (52.5%) either have all three or think they need all three for their collection, while 14 people (35%) think the River (III) is not necessary for their collection. This was a complicated poll considering the two GQ11 river tiles and Carcassonne II, so thanks to everyone who gave their detailed opinions on the River and completionism. I also learned in this thread that some people have SIX versions of the River!

Two other very interesting discussion points came up in this thread: the importance of watermarks, and the concept of a 'definitive version' of an expansion. These are both relevant to Completionism Poll #4: Shrines and Heretics, so head over there to vote and discuss your thoughts.

Meanwhile, this poll/thread will stay open and any future discussion of the River in terms of ownership/completionism is welcome in this thread, while for discussion of the River in terms of gameplay, head over to The River - Element of the Week #2.

So what River comes in the new edition? Is it more like River I or River III? Think River II will come in the new style, or do you think that would be a Big-Box exclusive?

It's the same as river 1 but with gardens. So you night call it river 4.

I suppose, if they make "Count, King, etc." in the new edition, they'll include River II as well.

Thanks to this topic, I went and bought a Big Box 5. So now I have the River III.

 ;D
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.
