Thanks for reminding us Decar! :o

I guess they might have covered themselves with their “use this expansion with other expansions at your own risk” disclaimer like the one we saw at the bottom of Watchtowers. In which case, a Carc 2.0 CAR is going to be pretty short.

The HIG guy in the video has been the one who has responded to some of my emails to Cundco.  I find it funny because he referred to the ringmaster as "the director" and he himself is a director.  He should have worn a wooden top hat in the video and tied it all together.

It also sounds like it's not possible to complete a Pyramid if you are playing with German Castles....The pyramid must be surrounded by 8-tiles.

Do I miss something? How can German Castles prevent completion of the pyramid? Why does the pyramid need to be surrounded by 8-tiles?

As far as i understand, if you place a tile in the surrounding 8, you can place a meeple on the pyramid. And with 3 meeples its completed. With the next surrounding tile you can score the pyramid, but it doesnt need to be completely surrounded does it?

I guess once the pyramid is completed you do not need to place a surrounding tile. After placing a tile anywhere if you decide not to place a meeple you can score the pyramid. So, only three surrounding (orthagonally or diagonally) tile is enough (Actually four because you need to place the pyramid tile adjacent to another tile first).

I assume a German Castle would count as two tiles for this purpose, as they do for cloisters, yes?

This seems like another good situation where it would be sensible to count the German Castles as 2 tiles rather than 1. Sense doesn’t really come into it though. I guess we’ll see what HiG have to say about it, if indeed they’re prepared to comment...

I have tried to remove all traces of the 2 tiles vs 1 tile German Castles debate from my memory. But in this I agree completely with Dan.

Smart move, trying to remove all traces. Everybody knows they count as 2 tiles  >:D ;)

Below you can find the Dutch box from 999 games

http://www.999games.nl/nieuws/nieuws/the-circus-is-in-town.html

"Het Circus" translates in English to "The Circus", so I would bet $5 that is what the Expansion will be called in English. 

My Dutch is slightly worse than my German (which is terrible), but I believe it says "We recommend using this expansion only with the base game of Carcassonne...
We hope to have Carcassonne: Circus in stores in the next 2 months."

I guess we may never get an official ruling as to whether or not the dragon can eat the circus animals (He totally can  :(y)).

It says they recommend to play it with Carcassonne base game 2.0. But, that it can be played with Carc 1 and the existing expansions altough the front of the tiles is different.

And your right about the delivery status, they hope to have it in stores in 2 months time.

This is the game, those are the rules and that is how it should be played!

The expansion will be in German stores in 2 months or US stores as well?

This is from the dutch publisher. They say theyve got the files and are going into the printing process now. So they hope they can have it in stores in holland in 2 months. I guess germany will be around the same time.
Z-man games does US/UK i believe. I cant find anything on their website about it just yet, so its unsure at the moment

ZMan only has the first 3 expansion available in new art in the US.   We will be lucky to have "The Circus" by September.
