It will be suck if we already collect all the expansion series in old style and of course you will hope that carcassonne old style still release the new expansion. But what will happen or will you do if there will be no more old style release anymore for new expansion ? And all the new expansion will release in ver 2.0 ?

If this happens I will buy two copies to the wood components, and will use the tiles for doing the same with the old graphics.
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.

So has there been any official word on future plans for Carcassonne 2.0 -- e.g. what expansions they plan to release -- and if there will ever be any reprints or further expansion for Carcassonne 1.0?

I feel like I've discovered this game at an awkward time in terms of deciding what products to purchase (1.0 or 2.0) and whether or not to wait. If I knew everything (or most everything) was going to come out in 2.0 during the next few years, that would be great... but I'm guessing we have no such word from HiG/Z-man/etc., right?

The old and new art are compatible.

Even the old art in itself also vary a lot going expansion to expansion side by side.

It all comes down to this: How important is it to have matching art?

Heroes of Might and Magic, the board game, you have tiles that randomly placed as the exploring goes and they don't even match at all, and this is within the rules. A river can flow to the edge of a tile and have an adjacent tile being grass for example.

So this a vanity decision to make, sort of. Me, personally, I like the old art more and would have wished they'd continue with it for these are more camera friendly than the new art.

I'm with you, Paul, in liking the old art more.

And I'm definitely in the camp that would strongly prefer to have the artwork match up, appreciating the visual aspect of the game. Minor color differences between some of the 1.0 expansions (e.g. Castles in Germany looks quite a bit darker to me) are fine by me, but a fully different style of art is enough to sway me away from buying conflicting expansions... hence my question.
