Glad to see it all finally arrived!

Did I forget to pack an Astronomers rule sheet? I'll send you a pdf if you need it.

Merry Christmas  ???

Hope you enjoy them all!

I love the postman... and my brother too ! He is a new Carcassonne fan ; we played some games on Christmas and I gave him the virus.
He made me some barrels to pimp "Traders & Builders". I've got already cloth chips from ooh_jim. I need to get some wheat.

Very cool - I've seen quite a bit of wheat around.  Meeplesource have some in their recent KS.  HiG use Wheat in some of their games too, so you might be able to order them as spare parts.

*Love* the barrels. I'm a big barrel fan, with some decorative barrels scattered throughout my apartment.

They also look great out on the board too. Do other people do that with trade goods? I just keep them aside and distribute them once cities are closed, but if you have nice goods, adding them to the landscape is a great idea. I had literally never thought of that until seeing your picture.

I've seen months ago, a similar picture (BGG ?). I thought it was a good idea for not forget the distribution of goods when the city is completed. Almost, a player can't put his meeple on the tile to hide the trade !

A consternated comment from my partner implies that I received the Winter Edition – Kornkriese expansion at my Arizona house today. That means I once again have all the expansions to all the official Carcassonne games (except for Carc2 expansions). Yay! No photo, obviously, but it should be there in twoish years when I get back.

I rather impulsively bought three games yesterday that I hadn't even heard of 24 hours earlier. Hopefully a photo will be coming to this thread soon!

I'm guessing it wasn't Carcassonne 2.0?

Ah, you've got the abbots! No yellow?
This is the game, those are the rules and that is how it should be played!

Oh how I wish I hadn't heard of Carcassonne 2.0 until two days ago. Actually I don't wish that, because then I'd be angry right now!  >:D

The three games are all by the same designer, and at least one of them is quite difficult to come by. The designer himself gives a discount if you buy two of them in combination, so I did that and added a third game just for fun :)

Not yet, since BGE ran out of yellow ones. Will still keep on searching! I was determined to get hold of these without succumbing to peer pressure and buying Carc 2 (although I may be tempted.....) in order to get the Abbots which I think are a great piece and addition to Carcassonne
