Just in passing - and OT here - I wonder how much a complete CarcII collection would cost over the coming years ...  I hate to think what my CarcI collection has cost me along with all the spin-offs!

If you buy it new, shortly after stuff is released, you'll end up with a Carcassonne 2 collection that cost you a fraction of what it will cost future players when they discover Carcassonne (new artwork edition of course) in years to come and attempt to collect everything for it via eBay or whatever. Spiel 14 and 15 tiles are going up in cost already...

The votes haven't been going very long, but there's already a sizable rift forming. The two highest voting groups are: "Dont care for them" and "yes but only in carc2".  There are however a small contingent of players that use them just for the monasteries expansions.  I can't wait to see where this goes during the week!

I think you need to add the 2nd and 3rd option since they amount to the same disposition. Then it's a three-way split.

I haven't tried using them with the Monasteries in the suggested way, i.e. as the only follower that can be played as an Abbot. Instead, I use them as a 'follower only' expansion for CI, like the phantom. I use their original rules, so essentially, it's a monk that can't be trapped. This is especially useful when playing with things like the Cult tiles or with Monasteries if you don't remove the base game cloisters, as it helps prevent follower shortage caused by all the cloister mechanisms available.
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.

This poll is almost over and the community divide hasn't shifted.  Looking at all the Yes vs No Votes they're both very similar.

I can't wait to see what happens the first time a 2.0 expansion without meeple comes out, if meeple have done this!

I'm going to leave this poll open, like every other week; feel free to comment.

Tomorrow, the next Favourtism Poll is starting. We have a guest host to ask you the week's question, thanks dirk2112 for the topic!
I won't spoil the surprise any more , you'll have to come back tomorrow to find out - Regular service will continue next week  :(y)

I'm curious what they're going to change in regards to the dragon while the big guy is in motion in its expansion (coming up next) and once The Tower comes into the mix.

The 'new' Princess and Dragon rules are available in German, the Abbot can be eaten by a dragon - there's no change in the rules except the Dragon's menu is contained.
