another new Mini-Expansion "Carcassonne - Darmstadt"
« on: October 04, 2014, 02:23:18 PM »
A few minutes ago I found the following thread in the german Spielbox-Forum (sorry it's only in german available):
Exklusiv bei der Spielerei: Minierweiterungen aus Darmstadt spielt
Obviously there will be a new mini-expansion for Carcassonne with a close relation to the german city Darmstadt.
According to one post and the article below this mini-expansion will be available at the fair SPIEL and during an game-event in the city Darmstadt.

A picture with some cards (but also for the other mentioned expansions!) you can found here:
Exklusiv: Minierweiterungen zu 5 Spielen
you must scroll down a bit; to the short article ""Exklusiv: Minierweiterungen zu 5 Spielen"

At the moment I don't know more.
No idea how many cards, ... and so on???

When a lot of cities will make there own mini-expansion (like the monasteries for Germany and new for the Dutch/Belgium) we collectors will have a hard time the next years  :o   ;)

Intriguing.  I wonder what the rules would be.  Looks to be only 1 tile so maybe it'll have similar rules to La Porxada? I'd certainly be interested in getting it if anyone finds out where from!

Yes, the most important question here is: How do those of us not fortunate enough to be in Germany during Essen obtain this set of mini-expansions? ( I'd be interested in getting the whole set, for all 5 of the games including Carcassonne!)

Yes, I am a Zooloretto collector as well and would love to get my hands on that new expansion for it. I had already heard about it from Michael Schacht. I'm slightly disappointed that it's just another bonus enclosure, but I still want it. I'm also intrigued with the Catan expansion, though I don't have that game with me right now nor play it much. The last other two expansions don't interest me a ton, but I'd take them all the same. I'm sure somebody here has those two games.

That all being said, I don't know if the new Carcassonne expansion is technically official, though at least it's being printed. It has the approval of Hans im Glück, like La Porxada, but none of Carcassonne's crew are listed on the credits, unless Wolfgang Kramer is a HiG employee. Either way, I'll take it!

If the art of the tile is that contemporary building I'd see this more as a promotional collectible item than an actually playable thing, moreso being only 1 tile. The art doesn't fit much into Carcassone.
Gotta catch 'em all

Is the Darmstadt expansion with the new art?

Agreed. I'm thinking one tile too. It falls into the category of La Porxada and The School in being non-thematic to the base game.

One other thing to add to the collection, the monkey on my shoulder whispering in my ear, "Find a way to get it as soon as possible"
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.

I haven't seen much of Carc II but the Darmstadt appears to be a cccc tile in the old art. Although the feature of the city is not old art.

I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

Wolfang Kramer is a famous game author (e.g. El Grande, Tikal, Torres, Asara). And as far as I know he is not an HiG employee, but he published at least one game at HiG (e.g. El Grande).

Yes, it sounds like HiG gave the permission for this expansion. But I don't know more. Perhaps kettlefish could ask HiG about it and perhaps if it will be available at CundCo, too  ;)
It will be difficult to get these expansions for many persons in SPIEL and the game event in Darmstadt. In the german forum CarcF somebody asked the organizing staff of the game event: it will cost 4 EUR and is one complete sheet with all the tiles of the five games.
Perhaps we will get to know some more details during the next days.

News from BoardGameGeek suggests this expansion comes with three tiles total. The one in the image is the stadium in which the Darmstadt spielfest is held. The other two are more historic structures in the city.

Tibetan Foxes just rule ! Look at it! It looks like a cross between a squirrel, a wolf and chow yun fat after smoking an unhealthy dose of weed. It's "Nemisis" is some sort of furry gopher with insecurity issues! That video is just to corny. 

But i agree to get back on topic.

I think there are 3 important questions:
What do the tiles do?
Will we only be able to get them trough the event like the porxada or can we buy them eventually at cundco?
Will the set include a tibetan fox meeple?
