on Thursday 08.10.2015 at 12:30 we will meet us - the members-meeting at Spiel 2015 in Essen.

I've called with Moritz Brunnhofer (HiG) some days before. At our members meeting we will get some Carcassonne game for playing - the new spin-off games.

I am jealous of those going to Spiel...they will get to play the new Uber Stock und Stein! I'm just about done translating the German rulebook into English.

So there are no new Carcassonne expansions coming out at Spiel. Is this assumption correct?

So: Carcassonne World Championship.
This year to the 10th.
10 years want to we with a special prize will honor World Championship Carcassonne. Due to the given event we have considered the following:
As always, the points of all winners of the World Championships are being held. At the end of the World Cup, we will donate €1 to a local refugee aid for each 2 points that are earned. Including some Carcassonne games in German, English and French.
So that it is not abused, we limit the donation to €10,000.
It play so members from 36 Nations and try a bit to help the refugees. They are better, the more money it comes together and we a little all engaging us on this subject.

I hope you're wrong. So far nothing has been anounced. Kettlefish wrote that German Castles would be available again and that they were going to publish blank tiles for some spin offs.

I hope it's okay to ask in this topic, was thinking to maybe post in 'Other Games', but since it's regarding Spiel...

Is anyone joining the Catan Big Game at Spiel on Saturday?

You will get all kinds of goodies for participating, including 1 set of colored plastic playing pieces (new version).
If you are not interested in these playing pieces, I'll gladly take them from you at SPiel for a max of 5 euro each.  :blue-meeple:

Or, additionally, if anyone is interested in joining the Big Game, I could purchase a group ticket with a minimum of 4 people.
This would only cost you 3 euro and I'll pay the rest in exchange for the playing pieces ofcourse  :)

The six available colors:  :blue-meeple: :green-meeple: :gray-meeple: :violet-meeple: :pink-meeple: :yellow-meeple:

I could also trade for any of Darmstadt promos, a Spiel 2014 tile promo, or a promo from the Brettspiel Advent Calendar from Frosted Games that has 24 promos to 24 different games, including Catan and Carcassonne.

Last desperate attempt. I have 2 spare tickets. If anyone's interested in participating with the big game, let me know. The ticket is completely free for you! All you need to do is show up, play, have fun! All I want in return are the goodies, you receive for playing. Or at least the playing pieces. I'm sure something could be arranged.  :)

The members of the community meets each other since some years at the Spiel 2015 in Essen.

when: Thursday 08. October 2015 - at 12:30pm

where: Hall 2 - booth 2-C101 - HiG-Tournament booth and CundCo booth.
           
Carcassonne-on-Tour (Udo Schmitz) will present us the new spin-off games:
- Carcassonne - Über Stock und Stein
- Carcassonne - Star Wars

We meet us at the booth and then we all go to the cafè where we find some tables to play the games. I think we will go to Hall 1.
---------------------------------------
I have updated the list - who will come to Spiel

Ah, hopefully I'll be able to drop by.

I have some trades at 12 and 13:30 arranged. I might show up for the explanations/presentation of the new games, but probably won't be able to play any games...  :-\

 :o  BREAKING NEWS!  :o

Last minute decision: I will be at Spiel on Saturday and possibly Sunday too!

I was supposed to travel for my work but it is postponed/cancelled so I am free this weekend. The difficulty was to find accomodation because of course everything is booked. Fortunately, my girlfriend has a distant relative living in the area so we'll have a place to stay.

MrNumbers: Would you like to play our LMS match with the real game on Saturday?  :red-meeple: vs. :yellow-meeple:  Could be fun!  :)

Sent him an email with my phone number. Hopefully we'll manage to get in touch.

we'll see... indeed it would be really interesting but we are also interested in the Grugapark next to Spiel. I think it is, or at least looks like, something fun for children... and perfect to escape an overcrowded convention centre!
