I must say, to me, Die Schule is a surprising third in the poll.

Hurray for education!

I underestimated the school and overestimated the count's Tableau
The City of Carcassonne is a beautiful piece of art, but when you use it, it opens up 14 potential spaces that players can start from – which is a lot – and it also implies that players can play with the Count expansion, which many don't want to do.

I built a randomizer chart that we use so every game is different and we don't get stuck in a rut for what is comfortable, or that has easy rules that we remember. My randomizer also has the start tile randomized so that is different every time. I voted for the random start tile.
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

Carc II river, but we throw the base game starting tile in the bag and use it like a normal tile, since the back doesn't matter, since it's in a bag.

The results for your favourite Start Tiles are in:

13 people voted for 'Standard' while 12 voted for one of the River Options.  I'm quite surprised how close these were!  Die Schule was also a very popular option with 5 votes.  The City of Carcassonne and Wheel of Fortune only scored 2 votes each and poor Wind Rose only got 1 vote.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and variations with us. Like I've been saying everyweek:  The Poll will remain open for late comers but we've moved into more exciting things.  Over the next few days the completionist polls will be coming out a little faster, so keep you eyes peeled.

This week we ask you:

Do you need all the phantom boxes?
