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.

20 tiles and 4 meeples each. Games would only last about 10 minutes max!

Still, it would be a good starting point for anyone who wants to develop their tile-counting skills!  >:D

Personally I don't really see the point. Is the base game so complicated that there is a need for a watered-down demo version to understand the game?

Plus, artwork 2.0. If you're going to publish a demo version of the game to attract new fans, at least do it in artwork that looks good!  >:D

Jungelboy, you hit the bull's eye! I guess HiG wants to promote the new version with this "demo", since the new version isn't really accepted in Germany.

I see this as something local boardgames shops would use instead of opening a full box to demo the game... So not intended for the general public but I could be mistaken.

Indeed. According to HiG's statement it is explicitly designed for newcomers to take home and practice how new tiles have to be added to the ones on the table.

I'll take one: it could be useful for travel or for teaching people the game.

I'd be after one too - mainly to inspect the new artwork in person!

Very good point. Maybe HiG are hoping to sell the demo version as a cheaper way of introducing people to the new artwork? That way, they might not think it's so bad when they see it and be more prepared to support the new direction.

Exactly! However, as far as I know the Demo version can't be bought, it is a plain promo for Carcassonne on Tour.

I suppose the larger questions for us are:
1) Are the tiles identical to base game tiles?
2) Are there watermarks on the tiles (it doesn't look like it)?
3) Is there anything else unique about this demo version (such as a rules change)?

If any of those answers are yes, I imagine many people would be interested in this little set. Otherwise, I'll just chock it up to marketing and put my mind at ease. To be fair, with the new art, I'm already 50% less interested, regardless of the answer.
