I don't entirely agree with you, but that's no bad thing. The whole point of this series was to explore different ideas to what completionism means to different people. It would be a pretty boring thread if we all agreed on everything! ;)
Point taken (along with a merit for you)!

Remembering when we started our collection, I really loved searching for hours for places where I could buy expansions and got a kick out of doing so. I guess, in a way, I don't own all of these variants since I don't want to admit that my collection may never be complete.

Maybe it is a pride thing or maybe it'll be something that'll keep me up at night. I guess for collectors, the feeling of having them all is quite good.

For a lot of people, their collection is never truly complete. Once you've managed to get hold of all of the conventional expansions and spin-offs you simply start looking for increasingly obscure things. For some people it's a purple/ black teacher meeple. For others it's a 70-point score track. The only thing you can be sure of is that there will always be some other rare edition or misprinted tile that you discover just when you thought you'd finally reached perfection; it's all about the thrill of the chase!

EDIT: Thanks for the merit! :) :(y)

If I go to Rio for the Olympics it will be a pretty poor reflection on the overall standard of Team GB...

Meanwhile, with 28 votes cast, the number of people who have all 3 and the number of people who have one or two and who say that is enough for them is exactly the same - 10 each. So that's interesting!  :(y)

In that case, shall we apply to Sport England or Sport Wales to make Carcassonne an official sport in our countries? Then we can definitely have a good Carc game at Rio!

I just have besiegers. But I have my own cathar tiles. I'm not playing £65 to get the real ones but I do want them.

Haha. Definitely true, Dan!

I could never buy the original Cathars. Already back than, they where unaffordable. But I could buy the Siege in an online store for a normal price. Personally, I don't like the Design of the Cathars. I'm very happy with the Besiegers and the Siege, since their design is very simular and they fit well together. The Cathars seem to be too different for me.

I got the Cult, Siege, Creativity set from Rio Grande Games for like 5 euros, brand new on Ebay.

I got the Cathars tiles from Cundco when they were briefly selling leftover stock a couple of years ago, I believe it was like 7 euros or something. It's still sealed.

I got the Besiegers expansion at a Carc meeting at Spiel and somehow got another copy of it that's still in seal. I think it was in an expansion box from HiG at Spiel, or a friend who didn't need it gave it to me.

I prefer Besiegers for artwork reasons.

For some reason, I found this pretty funny.

I have a copy of besiegers and that's enough for me.
