Hi Decar, maybe you could post the site where you order these from, if anyone wants to order directly from them?

I am really interested in this, but main reason is the Big Count Tile. So paying anything more than 20-25 euro is my maximum (inc. shipping).

Did anyone (Kettlefish?) ever contact HiG to tell them of this version of the tile and if they'll ever release it as well as special promo or something?

That was the same idea i had, Khonnor we live in the same country.. maybe we can work something out?

I ordered straight from the publisher - HobbyWorld.  If my calculations are correct if we ordered 6 they're come in at around £27 per box + extra postage.

If there are several people in the same country it obviously makes sense to order at the same time  :(y)

I'll add you both to a different list.

(need another tower and extra tower pieces anyway..)
If you are refering to the tile holder as "another tower" I do have one to give away.

My only defence is you took such a good photo,  no other would ever be required.   Plus I referenced your image directly rather than copy it :P

No worries. I don't mind at all.

On a side note, just make sure everybody understands that the quality of the tiles are a bit different than the "western" publishers, just to avoid dissappointment.  Colour, thickness and size differ so nobody should have high expectations. However, it was not a problem for me at all. Especially the 12-in-1 Count tile, I think it is perfectly fine.  So far, I played 2 games with The Tower and another one with P&D, and I was not annoyed by these small differences.

Yes that's true - hopefully you can see from my 'legitimate' photo that the game tiles are a slightly different shape.
The edges are move beveled.  Hence while I'm considering getting a WoF too for a Base Game. :(y)

The Russian finish is different, generally greens are greener too, which is difficult to capture in a photo. The tile surfaces are smoother, which I think helps the artwork; but I'm not sure the cardboard is so dense.

Just had a thought - has anyone contacted the Russian publisher directly to see if they will send out a load of one piece city tiles?
Just lay the damn tile!

My ozon parcel came today, so here's a little review for anyone who's interested.

I picked up the Russian expansion box for a total of just over £26 including p&p, paypal charges and everything else. It took 12 days to be sent to the UK; from what I can gather from the shipping details on the package, it was sent from Latvia. The box was in good shape (the inserts are loose inside, and none of the tiles had fallen out) and was sent in a corrugated card wrap-around box similar to Amazon's methods.The website itsself was easy enough to navigate when I set chrome to automatically translate Russian, it had a small verity of carcassonne games, and they accepted paypal.

All in all, very pleased with the order, and I'd be happy to buu from them again.

Formal Response Received this morning:

Sorry, we can't break Nobles&Tower sets by taking out City of Carcassonne tiles.
These tiles are included in the set and we do not sell City of Carcassonne tiles separately.
