I get to play so seldom that I enjoy anything, but if I had my choice and nothing to do for half a day, I'd play Mega-Carc every time.

I know it's not the same, but there's often plenty of people from the forums willing to play an online game if you get the chance?  ;)

I do need to check that out.  However, I usually don't get a chance to play much of anything until late at night which is New York time is the wee hours across the pond.  How many expansions are on there?
Hi CKorfmann,
the JCloisterZone (JCZ) has many expansions. We play here in the CarcC community mostly with JCZ.

I numbered every modules of expansions & mini-expansions (for example Builder, Pigs and Traders modules for "Traders and Builders" expansion) from 1-50 in total for instance.

I use random number generator on my mobile phone to generate a number between 4-10. This means in this game I will use that many modules (Let's say it generated "6"). Then one more number generator which generates "6" numbers between 1-50 modules (2,7,13,14,28,44). Then I add these numbered modules to the base game.

Also d12 and d60 dice may be used for manual number generating :)

I like to play the more complex way with all the carcassonne (plus 9 extensions), plus the new one and extension 1, with the winter in one side and discovery on the other, a lot of official mini and some of my own extensions. :black1-meeple:

I don't know if I am more impressed that he merged Amazonas with the regular game or that he found so many people willing to play with the Count expansion.   ;D

Merit for either or both :(y)

For the Count expansion, it's just some perso waiting to be used, like the fairy, the gingerbread man. I'm not using Amazonas but Winter and Discovery. For the ship, it's for the transport of merchendise like you see pigs, cows and small fishing boats along the river. I'm looking for a way to use my ship with the Cityriver with port. Also I'm using a tile with half snow and grass.

Sorry it was hard to tell what that was on my phone.  I do see that it definitely isn't Amazonas. 

I thought it would be cool to make a starting row of maybe 8 tiles depicting Mountains on them with a few roads getting thru.  On one side they would be green and the other white.  "Life in a Northern Town" kind of thing using both the old art and the winter art.  I never got a hold of the Winter Edition, so I never worked out a half snow half grass solution.

You can see photos attached. (Right column the ones that I have, left column all Carcassonne II modules). I'm kinda new to Carcassonne world and collecting Carcassonne II. (Only Spiel14 and Spiel15 tiles are :( )
Actually I use generators to decide;
How many modules and which modules to include into the game.

I'm working on something using Quevy's "Pyrenees" expansion to do just this - see Winter On The Other Side of the Mountains
Complete: Cliffs&W'falls (C1/2), Coast (C1/2), Fluvium (C2), Wells (C2), Jordan River 2 (AotC)
Development: Stone Circles (C1/2), Woodcutters/Forests/Autumn/Sakura (C2),  Rivers&Lakes (C1), Harvest (C1/2), WinterEdge (C1), WinterCoast (WD/WE), Catch Of The Day (C1/2/WD) and others.
