Announcements at Essen Spiel 2016
« on: July 31, 2016, 02:42:48 PM »
I've been doing some digging.  Hans im Glueck have announced:

Carcassonne:Amazonas will be released at Essen, along with the first Star Wars Expansion:

http://www.merz-verlag-en.com/new-releases.html

This you probably already know, but if you check the releases you'll see that the Cundco Shop is also releasing:  "The Watchtowers" which looks to be a mini-expansion given it costs 6.50Euro.  No more is known by me at this time.  Interestingly, the Japanese Temples were not listed, even though these are to be released at Essen.

As I said before, I'm looking forward to the first StarWars expansion.

Product details have been released here including the rules PDF:

http://www.schmidtspiele.de/produkt-detail/product/star-wars-carcassonne-erweiterung-1-48260.html

The rules show, there will be 18 tiles which look like variants from TnB & InC.  Also included are 6th player: Kylo Ren meeple and 50/100 point markers. 

The significant change to the rules are each player is given a lightsabre and a blaster which can be placed with their meeple and act as dice modifiers, including a D6 which rolls 3,4,5,6,7,8.  BB8 is shown as the watermark.


Edit:  I forgot to include Bretspielebox's Link about it all:

So a new expansion for carcassonne.
There will also be a new brettspiel adventskalendar. But there is no expansion for carcassonne in it.
Although there is a cacao expansion in it.
I'm curious if there would be anything for Carcassonne first edition.

Yes, there's a couple of things from brettspiel, I suspect there may be something for some game in there somewhere!
They were very secretive about the advent calendar last year.  I suspect at Essen it will be a  pre-order for Christmas - I think that's what happened last year?

Cacao is the highest for me too.
Arcadia Quest
I'm tempted by Karuba but don't have the base game.
I'm watching the Crisis KS at the moment, so a promo seems interesting.

I've not played Saboteur, but I know Danisthirty is a fan  :(y)

Yep, that's my thread on BGG about the calendar.  :) I'm also disappointed by this year's offering in the calendar. Only really interested in 2 of the promos, maybe 3 compared to last year's 8 to 9.

Where can I see the Watchtower Carcassonne promo? If it's old art, I might get it.

Nothing yet, just a line in a spreadsheet as far as I know.
