Carcassonne: Expansion N°10 Under the Big Top / Manege frei
« on: December 19, 2016, 02:05:04 AM »
Hello Folks

Randomly looking at some websites I ended up finding that:

https://www.spiele-offensive.de/Spiel/Carcassonne-Manege-frei-10-Erweiterung-1019434.html

The 10th expansion is scheduled for release on March 2017 and is named "Manege Frei" or in English "Manege free", but it may be translated totaly diferently :)

No pictures yet unfortunately.

Nice find totor66! Let the speculation begin! :) :(y)

By the way, just for the record, I do so love how despite being a loyal and dedicated fan site we never hear news of upcoming expansions from the horses mouth but always through somewhere selling it online instead... ???

Nice find indeed, merit for you!

The 10th expansion is scheduled for release on March 2017 and is named "Manege Frei" or in English "Manege free", but it may be translated totaly diferently :)

A quick check on word-reference shows that 'manege' in German can mean a (circus) ring, while frei can mean free but also released. So could it be that animals from a travelling circus have escaped and are roaming the countryside? If so, hopefully they'll trample the gardens. And, while they're there, the abbot.  >:D

Edit: This game, called Make 'n' Break Circus, also has the expression 'manege frei' in the description.

My random guess is the numbers have to do with how many meeple you can see from the watchtowers or cloister bell towers.  Each player gets a hut from hunters and gatherers that acts as a circus tent.  You want to place your hut where the most meeples can see it and attract them to your circus for bonus points. 

The tile that appears to hold 2 meeples at a road junction is a spot where opponents (fencers, strong men, bards) face off for something or another.

Looks good, and I speculate the artwork will be compatible with both forms, and the tilebacks will be the same.

I hope they spell: 'Manège' correctly in the German/English version of the rules, it's a French word ;) 

Hopefully kettlefish will have an opportunity to correct them  :(y)

I think in german we dont use the french pronounciation, we do speak the ending "e".

In Germany the director of a circus welcomes his guests and ends it shouting "Manege frei!", something like "Let the show begin!"

Surely someone here knows something real about this expansion so we can stop guessing!

Almost certainly. Whether or not they're allowed to share it is the real question. Hence my frustration.

In any case the circus theme sounds like it might be more along the lines of Catapult and Bazaars in terms of the colour/vibe of the tile art.

When you say you think it will be compatible, do you mean they'll release it in both art styles, or just that it can be played with both?

I wouldn't expect it to come out in the old artwork either. But they are starting to build up a fair bit of new artwork stuff for next year's Big Box release.
