Perhaps we should splitt this with the score of the tiles from one expansion.
I like to know what all the other expansions could get points if playing only this expansion without base game or without another expansion...

Perhaps we could ask farin to allow us playing JCloisterZone without the base game (leaving only the starting tile). I assume that wouldn't be so difficult to develop.
Then we could announce further solo contests for the expansions.

I wonder if anyone could be clever enough to venture a guess into what the maximum number of potential points you could get from each expansion and when adding all of the together
If only I had another Halfling.....

I have 1 6-point besieged city, 5 points from roads, and 7 6-point farms for 42 points. What am I missing?

I see 6 points for the city, 5 points for the roads, 6 farms for 6 points, and 1 for 8 with the pig =  65.  62 is possible with a standard set of followers (seven standard followers, Big follower, Phantom, cart, pig).

But 6 + 5 + (6 x 6) + 8 = 55, not 65. ???

Without pig, 53 is the most points I can find...

Apparently, I can't add...

I just received my big box 5. So I can tick off the variant wof start tile, the alternative river tiles, the hills and sheep, and the extra colors for my meeple families.

The Cacao volcano mini expansion arrived today. I don't even own the base game yet! This is the first time I have seen Cacao tiles in person and they look great!

Not had much in the post recently, so thought I would include all the items I brought back from my trip to the USA in September with today's delivery!

Many thanks to the CarcassonneShoppe for MFC & Travel Edition :)

My Big Box 5 arrived yesterday! Ha-zah!

Most importantly, this gives me the River III, which I decided I needed as a result of the Completion posts. Darn those posts. No doubt I'll end up trying to get the Spielbox Cult tiles, too. It also has, I believe (although I haven't checked) the hill tile from Hills and Sheep sans the missing watermark. Very exciting. Plus the language independent Wheel of Fortune, which is good. Purple meeples too, though I already have pink. I should have bought orange before. More score tiles, and duplicates of other expansions. All good though! Upon a quick look, it seemed to me that the trade tokens were bigger than my other set from the original Traders and Builders. I'll have a good look tonight.

Most interestingly, this Big Box gives me a storage dilemma. Do I continue to keep my collection in an original game box and a Wheel of Fortune box, or move it all into the big box? I'll probably keep with the two boxes as I'm close to adding a third (Winter Edition!) box!
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.

I had completely forgotten I had ordered these magazines (from England). Winter Edition Corn Circles from another other figure I include these as they only had one copy and it was barely 4 Euro.

Pardon the image quality but I'm sick (got a cold) too lazy to work on the image.
