Have fun dear members!

They look incredible ugly, but nevertheless.. it's a new expansion.

The farm around the Japaneese monasteries is in the CC II - new Edition.

One I think is Osaka Castle, but might be the modern Imperial Palace, it's hard to tell

The other may be the Buddha from Kamakura, it is hard to tell.  But it is the second largest Buddha in all Japan!

Funny to see that the link to carcassonne is to the normal edition.

I'm not going to buy it until anyone can show me how it looks with the normal edition..

It can't be any more jarring to see than the German Cathedrals can it?  :o 8)
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

I've bought one so i'll put some screens up on here when it arrives.

I just bought the new art Carc because i found a 1st edition box/scoreboard and the guy would only sell it to me if i replaced his box!!! (he hated the 70 point board so had made a new 50 point one anyway!)

so i bought the new art set and sent him the box as a swap!!
must...collect...more...tiles....

i think it looks like an art/proof pic rather than an actual real life photo of the tiles.

Will know more when they arrive.

The thing is, monistaries/cathedrals or any other stuff from Germany can actually somewhat be believable in terms of building style.. This is just plain silly, to be frank.

Oh boy, I hope the next expansion is fast food restaurants.  My "drive thru" meeple could get me one point for every connected road and my "restaurant manager" could give me 2 points for every city within a 5 tile radius.   :(n)

Well.  I thought the CarcII art was horrible in the base game - I guess we can see that the expansions will be even worse.  This is an easy pass.  I don't even want to buy a few copies to sell to the Japanese at a profit.
