If you do - and if it's allowed - would anyone be able to email me the English rules for "The Tunnel" from the Spielbox magazine?

Thanks in advance (and I'll delete this if it's inappropriate)

Nothing inappropriate about it, but why do you need it? The CAR (Carcassonne Annotated Rules) has an English translation of the original German Spielbox rules that are far superior to the original (very poor) English version. If memory serves me right, The Tunnels was from one of the very first English-language issues of Spielbox and they did not have their act together quite yet back then. I don't even keep Spielbox rules anymore just because of how badly translated they are. (Just checked, Der Tunnel was included in the second-to-last issue before Spielbox began publishing English translations. There is no official English version of the rules.)

Thank you for checking that for me - have one of those merit things, that was kind.

My chum asked me for the English rules to Plague and Tunnel: I have them for Plague.   I also have - obviously :) - the CAR and I had planned to send them to him anyway, but I thought it would be nice to try to find the original  English rules for him.  Now I can stop looking!

Thanks again

No problem. For a while, we at CarcCentral tried to get Spielbox to publish official English rules. They surprised us by just releasing an entire English-language edition of the magazine. Hard to fault them for that. But yeah, Kathars, Kult, and Tunnel are the three expansions that never had official English rules (of course the first two were later released in full English versions). All the rest have had English releases, albeit not very well written ones until recently.
