Yeah,  the new drawerstrings are no where near as nice as the older ones.  The School, I think I've seen three different batches.  I find it interesting that factories that make these things make subtle changes.  It takes a devoted enthusiast (nerd) like me to spot them.  I doubt HiG ever noticed, specially given the misprint on bridges!

Does this seem legit/'original'? Are we talking about rounded tiles at the edges? It sure seems like it but if anyone has any experience with this seller..

Yep, Russian Tiles have rounded edges and Ks on the back - plus that's the publisher.

Just to be sure, those tiles exist with the traditionnal C on the back or it's just with the K ?

They do not exist with the C on the back, they were only ever printed in Russia so only have the K.

Maybe this could be a project for one of the members with a good tile printing set up..?

I believe Decar has already done this, although these may have been with his old printer so I imagine he'll want to redo them at some point.

Yeah, I'm thinking now that some people are able to do more "official"-looking tiles, creating better versions of La Porxada and Baba Yaga is a good project for the future. I was just reorganising some of my tuck boxes and forgot that all three of those tiles are just glued together. They are functional, but don't quite match the rest.

Too bad the Russian tiles cost a small fortune to mail. Their purchase price is so low!

I would be willing to be part of a purchase and I think it was already done here.

I think if we are between 5 and 10 people that is reasonnable.

For example for 10 people it should be 3500 RUB (price of expansion) + 2120 RUB (shipping) so around 74 € to Germany (with their currency rate)

Ok then the person who receive it all should dispatch and it should cost an extra on top of that but it seems decent to me

EDIT: Actually I just noticed that since you can't place an order for just 350 RUB, you need to take 2 sets and it would be around 34 €, seems expensive but I guess by selling the other, that should come for a reasonnable price
