The best photograph game with fan-expansions.
« on: January 02, 2016, 03:21:07 AM »
Here is a photo contest.

Each participant in this contest will present a picture of the game, the only requirement is that they must use a fan-expansion in our download archive.

In late February, all photographs will participate in a secret ballot to determine the best. Each person of the forum can vote his favorite, of course not be able to vote for themselves.
The person who sent the photograph and a randomly selected from those who voted for the winner, will receive from me the opportunity to have an important expansion of their choice printed directly on tile (up to 12 tiles).

I hope to see many highly artistic photos, fun and quirky.

Rule Clarifications
  • Any Official Carcassonne base game, including spinoffs, with any expansions
  • It MUST include a fan expansion - but not necessarily from CarcC's Download - so long as it's available somewhere

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.

What a fantastic idea!

But, I'm going to up the ante here  - I'll offer to print a smaller expansion (upto 6-tiles) for 2nd place too!

Are we limited with our own hand printed expansions? Or with only on CarcC published fan-expansions?
I have one fan-expansion "Die Flussfahrer", which was not printed by me, I just own it, but never played.

It can be used any fan-expansion. Now you have a good reason to try it :)

Does it have to be for Classic Carcassonne or can it be for any of the spin offs?

What you want, just that it's something of Carcassonne, and a fan-expansion :)

OK then, here's a photo of a game I played with my wife last Sunday. Not an artistic one at all, but it will do for a start. At least some interesting details can be found in it. For example, some unusual wooden figures (even on the scoreboard), unfortunately one of them is improperly placed (I guess you will find it quite easily).

Official expansions included in this game:
- GQ11 tiles
- King and Robber Baron
- Wagons from the Abbey & Mayor expansion
(+ some extra tiles from the base game, that's why there are two CCCC tiles)

Fan-expansions included:
- Wells (can be downloaded here)
- The wagoner
- City walls

The latter two are not yet published, actually this game was a playtest of their rules. The game was great fun, I think both new expansions passed the test (but please don't ask for the rules here in this topic, sooner or later I'd like to publish them in the Expansion Workshop), in the end I won by some points.
The final result:  :violet-meeple: Leven 191, :green-meeple: Mrs Leven 186.

I think Leven as a single participant has won the prize without a vote.

Quevy, I am sure that other members also wanted to participate in this contest but simply forgot about it because there was no activity here.
So I suggest let's extend the contest for another month.

I've been meaning to post a photo here for some time, so thanks for extending the closing date.

Lukey-Dukey and I decided to play a quick game last night and used the German Castles mini expansion as we've not played with them before. We also both wanted to use The Astronomers fan expansion by Decar, as we enjoy it. It was a really interesting game and despite my best efforts the cheeky little monkey won in some style! There's a quick write up at http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=2527.0 if you're interested, but I thought that I'd post another photo here as it shows Decar's quality fan expansion up close. It might look a little odd, but honestly we didn't deliberately choose to place most of The Astronomer tiles so close to each other, it just kinda happened!

Great photo Rich, those Astronomers tiles look awesome!

Congrats to Lukey-Dukey on what I'm sure must have been a tough win! 8) :(y)
