Thanks JB. :(y) Please PM me with his address and I'll start looking into getting hold of a crow-bar and a balaclava. I can only assume that this is still considered the standard equipment for burglars nowadays.

There's one on Amazon.US for $50, but I'm guessing you'd rather not pay that much.

I've also been looking for this and I sure hope I didn't take this out of Danisthirty's hands, (I would feel bad about that). I bought one of the two copies available from AmazonUS. As it stands there's still one copy there.

It is a bit pricey but copies on this side of the pond are fetching higher prices than that.

Thanks CKorfmann for the post!

Received my copy today with a very quick turn around of about one week, cheers!

Hey guys! I wish I would have seen this thread back in December. Wheel of Fortune is one I am missing form my collection too.

The only way I see it on Amazon (US) right now is for $119, which is out of my price range. ($50 seemed like a good deal compared to what I have seen elsewhere).

If anyone sees this in the $50ish or less range, would you mind letting me know?

It's always a hunt for these rare ones :)

I recently purchased replacement parts via Amazon from Gameshelf. This company bought BB5 and posted me only the WOF parts (which is the 28 tiles that don't come with the base game). This is how I managed to finally get hold of this without needing another mortgage!
If only I had another Halfling.....

Hey Carc-a-holics!!  Not sure if this is legit, but it seems possible.  I just stumbled across this seller on Aliexpress.com.  Apparently you can buy what appears to be a Chinese version of Carcassonne base game, Wheel of Fortune base game expansion, and a 5-expansion multi-pack that includes "tower/catapult/count/king/chaser expansions", plus 2 rivers..... all for US$26.99 with free shipping to the US.   

Anyone know anything about this?????    Sounds too good to be true.

I just examined it a little further.  I guess you have to choose the "color", which is really choosing either the base game, a wheel of fortune game, or the chinese 5-expansion combo.  Either way, you can get the Wheel of Fortune for about $26US shipped free to US.

Yeah, not legit  :(n)

Funny enough I found this site just the other day but didn't spend anytime exploring it.

This is just one review, (from a Canadian buyer).

These tiles are thinner than genuine Carcassonne tiles. Best to shuffle them in a bag when drawing. The Count, King and Robber tile set is missing the heretic shrine tiles. Also, the numbers on the back of the 12 tiles that make up the city of Carcassonne are not in order. Overall this is an OK reproduction and let's you play the Catapult and Tower expansions which are either out of print, or hard to find.

There were also complaints of torn tiles on the back of tiles.

I looked through some other board games on this site and while some were 'reasonably' market priced there are some games like Ticket to Ride for 17.99 or less, delivered  :o

I think the Dutch version from 999 games is still easy to find. The only problem is that you would get the wheel in Dutch, obviously. But I guess for the completists who already own the language independant wheel from BB5, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Also, CC have provided a really good Complete Annotated Rules document complete with an explanation of WOF for anyone who did get a Dutch version
