HiG at facebook

HiG is asking what the fans of Carcassonne wish to have at the CundCoShop.
---------------------
What wishes do you have?

I will send to HiG an email with the link to this topic.

At CarcF we have the same theme:

I repeat what I wrote about CarcF

White tiles for spin-off
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

 :white-meeple: My works.

A full set of abbots would be greatly appreciated.

Pink & purple phantoms. Just a more complete range of supplies for the non-standard colours in general, really. (Or, following bb5, pink & purple at the very least). What else is missing and currently unavailable, other than the phantoms? Tunnel chips? Anything else?

Not that I ever play with 12 players, mind. But I do find it mildly irritating that my collection has colours that are unable to be completed.

Perhaps a bundle of non-colour-specific pieces to help scale the game to 12 players too - eg. a bag containing x number of bridges, tower sections, catapult tokens, abbeys, everything else. I'm guessing people with all 12 colours will probably have collected all of, or at least all of the readily available expansions. I know the issue of scaling has be discussed here, but I can't remember what the outcome was regarding how best to incorporate another 6 players whilst keeping the expansions balanced.

Apart from rare expansions (though I miss only Cathars), I miss one item, what I bought from CarcassonneShoppe, but can't find at CundCo: pewter meeple with keyring. I would love to buy some more.

Definitely corn circles 1!

Maybe tunnels would be nice too (just 1 set is not enough in larger games)

I would definitely buy all of these items if they listed them in the stores:

- The Tunnels expansion
- More phantom colors (pink, grey, etc)
- Crop Circles 1

The phantom in all new colours!
Would be great, but the Phantoms are even gone now in the regular colours. And HiG wrote, that there will be no new production run.

Anyway, as mentioned here, I once got all the available material (beside the "wood" abbey, tower pieces, castles and bridges) for 8 players through spare parts and somebody mentioned, that would be nice as a package. (Especially, if they could provide some other extras like the tunnel chips, which is quite unlikely, as long they don't even offer the regular expansion.)

I want all of the above. Also an official La Porxada with clarified rules and the Russian Promo with a proper back. Why on earth did they need to put the Russian backs in Cyrillic?

Some great thoughts here - Tunnels would be on my list - or a new Tunnels with more tiles.

I think it's because Carcassonne Russian/Cyrillic is: Каркассон  or: karkasson

Sorry rhetorical question. My Russian extends to the alphabet and about five words. I meant I don't understand the market logic of putting it in the Cyrillic alphabet. Obviously I accept that the rules need to be in Russian and the package as well. But the playing experience of Russian players is now impacted because they cannot mix and match Russian and foreign sets - unless they use a bag of course (but that feels wrong).

It's probably worth having this chat somewhere else, as it's off topic:

I agree it would be beneficial to players to have a common set; but it seems to be a cultural thing.
Very many games in Russia are reworked to include cyrillic.  I suspect it might be that the publishers feel the game will be accepted more by their population if it uses characters they are familiar with.  A bit like the opposite of the 'matsui-effect' in the UK during the 80s-90s; where a British company gave their electronic equipment an Asian sounding name to suggest it was a quality item.  Perhaps a Russian consumer sees Roman font and assumes it's inferior in some way.

From the publishers perspective it can make a lot of sense: if someone wants to play Carcassonne in Russia they can buy it from us....or noone else.  Also, it's been pretty hard getting items out of Russia too a lot of board game shops don't ship abroad, I think there is a mentality of closed-borders.

Please come back to the topic.
HiG and CundCo like to know what is missing at the CundCoShop.
