Components match from different distributors
« on: February 24, 2015, 08:59:38 PM »
Sorry to disturb. I wonder if the RGG version could exactly match up with the tiles produced by Z-man?

I'm searching for River II and find it at carcassonneshoppe. Is this expansion sold by carcassonneshoppe officially authorized?

Thanks in advance for the help.

All game components on CarcassonneShoppe are from Hans im Glück, Z-Man, Spielbox, or RGG, to the best of my knowledge. The only custom stuff on there are non-game components like jewellery and household decorations. I believe even the meeples are all official HiG alternate colours from their website.

Yes, you can mix all components from HiG, Zman, RGG, Devir or other western distributors, I think they all are printed the same. Some of the print runs have slightly different colours, but this is in all distributions.
The Russian components have a Kyrillic K on the back and the corners of the tiles are rounded more, they are printed elsewhere.

You're really a big help, Whaleyland!
I'm reading your reviews on BGG. They're fair and decent!

Thank you for the help! I hesitated before making an order, now it's time to go :)

I try to be fair. That's why I always start off with the criticism first. I put it forward and make it loud. But only someone who loves the game can really be critical of Carc expansions. So far, only the Darmstadt expansion hasn't been reviewed by me, and that's mostly because I've only placed it once still. It is going to be a bit hard to find three positives for that one, unfortunately. I'll do it, but the negatives will be much more thorough.
