http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caernarfon_Castle was on my list but didn't want to pick all the good Welsh castles and show favourtism ;)

Dover was in my running too, but was getting it confused with another one on the South coast and couldn't find it :(y)

My favorites are in Wales, too..

Raglan - First castle I ever went to as a kid, with family. First trip to Wales back in the 80's. Every time I find myself over there, I stop by there whenever I can.
Chepstow - Stopped at this one on the last trip. Personally, I love how it's built on the cliffs of the River Wye.

If there is to be a UK edition maybe it should be Scottish, Welsh, English and northern Irish mixed. So it's fair for everyone.
Just lay the damn tile!

I really appreciate that Udo gives the community an opportunity to help decide which castles will be included in this expansion. In traditional fashion, I expect we won't find out how the expansion works until the last possible moment.

I hope that we'll see more castle expansions from the other publishers. I feel a little more confident about 999 Games, since they participated in the monastery expansion. Of the areas covered by Z-Man Games, France and the UK are obvious choices for castle expansions. Though there are some castles in North America, few of them are very old, and none of them date back to the middle ages.

Just when my collection was completed... except I'm not surprised by this. The release cycle for new mini expansions is fairly well-established now.

Burg Konradsheim deserves a tile for hosting the annual fan meetings.

I was under the impression that Castles was to be a six tile expansion?

Keep the discussion going for the British Isles. Kalinda is doubtful, but she's going to see if management is interested. I think it's safe to say that, based on what happened with the Dutch/Belgian monastery expansion, there will be the same or more demand for expansions covering the British Isles as well as France itself.

I have splitt the topic - now we have some thoughts for castles in the UK as an own topic.

Thoughts: UK Castles for a Mini-Expansion

As always - each time when I splitt here at CarcC a topic - not all the postings land in the correct new topic - sorry. I have to say - the software for the forum at CarcF is more easy for me - it is in German.  ;D - and it works easier than the software from SMF.

The mini with the "German Castles"

We have some more updates. I've called today with Udo Schmitz (Carcassonne-on-Tour).

1st point:
Udo Schmitz and Klaus-Jürgen Wrede say thanks to the community that we all worked hard to find a result for the "German Castles".

2nd point:
Udo called with the owners of the castles. The owners were very pleased about this action and are happy to be a part of it.
a definitly YES from these castles:
- Burg Bentheim
- Burg Rieneck
- Wartburg
- Burg Konradsheim
- Festung Königsstein

3rd point:
Burg Eltz is the last of the 6 castles for the mini expansion.

4th point:
the landscape tiles will be double landscape tiles.

Thanks Kettlefish - double landscape tiles - it's like the opposite of half tiles! ::)

Does this mean they are double the size of a normal tile? Or double-sided? Either way, they're not going to be something that can be drawn randomly. (Okay, you could draw double-sided tiles randomly from a bag, but not from all mechanisms like the tower.) And either way, I like it.

I like it too. So I guess you will get one of these double-tiles per player (or you could get 2-3 if you are playing with 3 or 2 players) and they won't be mixed in with the rest of the tiles - like the abbey.

I said double landscape tiles - not double sided...

I think she means it is the size of two tiles stuck together (next to each other). So a rectangular tile twice the length of current tiles with the same width. Or four halflings put together :)
