Interesting that only two years in and they've already stopped doing "Around the World" games. I also am disappointed that the Star Wars one isn't releasing this year considering The Force Awakens is coming out December. That's two misses. This game looks potentially interesting, but it also reminds me a lot of Kids of Carcassonne.
As Fritz_Spinne said already Star Wars Carcassonne will come this year and the AotW series is going on next year. Somewhere I heard that the next one will be situated in the Amazon Rain Forest.

Maybe you messed up some news.  O0

Fair enough. My brain is so muddled these days I'm not certain I should even be going online anymore. Dude, working on a PhD thesis is a pain in the brain.

I'm guessing this won't be released in English until next year?

I've called with Moritz Brunnhofer (HiG) today, he told me that Zman games will also publish the English version of this spin-off at Spiel 2015 in Essen.

Star Wars Carcassonne?! Wow. I love both of those things on their own very much, but I can't see the combination being anything more than an ugly Frankenstein's monster of a game. Not a case of "two great tastes that taste great together," IMHO...

Wow great news!  I just had a quick look over the German rules. It looks really really good! I love the score track and the tile distribution looks interesting. There's also 73 tiles so an equal number for 2,3,4 players. Not sure I understood how the paths work, but I cant wait!

You get points for the hiker like in regular Carcassonne but before you can walk him along the path. If you extend the path and don't place a meeple or stable you can move the hiker along the path and you get as many points as the tiles the hiker is walking forward. (He cannot stop on a tile with another hiker, but he can skip over other hikers.) So you can wander forward and backwards every other turn, if you only get boring paths ... and get much points.

These expansions are getting ridiculous.  At this point, they're out of good ideas and trying to milk you out of your money.

I think my collection is complete with the German castles. Adios!

Nice knowing you.

I thought the artwork was great and the walking mechanic allows paths to score similar to fields.

The tile distribution looks interesting too.

this is not an expansion for the standard Carcassonne.
"Carcassonne - Über Stock und Stein" is a spin-off game.
The publisher HiG and the author KJW created this game. It is a commissioned work for the Ministry of health. Some schools will be equipped with this game.

Hi Duncan90.

Sorry to hear that you no longer seem to have any interest in collecting Carcassonne.

Personally, I don’t think it’s fair to say that KJW/ HiG are “out of good ideas”. A lot of people said that when The Catapult came out but there have been some great expansions and spin-off games released since then.

Even if you don’t like the sound of some of the mechanics behind “Over Hill and Dale” I think it’s worth staying in touch to see what comes along next. Abandoning something out of principle would be a shame if this means you miss out on the enjoyment of something else that comes along afterwards.

All the best for the future anyway, regardless of what you choose to do.
