Publisher Completionism?
« on: February 09, 2017, 10:41:42 AM »
Because I started late with this, my collection is a mix of tiles from various Publishers.  I don't think anyone would really choose to collect expansions from various publishers, but then again you never know.  I am impressed at how my Rio Grande stuff matches my Z-Man stuff which matches my Giochi Uniti stuff.  The really bizarre field color differences that I have are all from HIG for whatever reason.   ???

According to Wikipedia, the following companies publish Carcassonne:

Hans im Glück (Germany)
Z-Man Games (UK, US)
999 Games (Netherlands)
Фантасмагория (Bulgaria)
Lautapelit.fi (Finland)
Κάισσα (Greece)
Brain Games (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)
メビウスゲームズ (Japan)
Giochi Uniti (Italy)
Devir (Spain, Portugal)
Grow (Brazil)
MINDOK (Czech Republic, Poland)
Rio Grande Games (Sweden)
Hobby World (Russia)

Others missing from Wikipedia:
Filosofia (french)
NeoTroy Games (Turkey)

I'm not sure who made the Spielbox or GQ stuff.  I have those if they count.  Otherwise I have stuff from 4 Publishers.  Who has me beat?  I am sure a lot of you do, but I would be really surprised if someone had something from every Publisher.

Also Hobby World puts a "K" on the back of the tiles.  Am I correct in assuming the Bulgarian company does as well?  Are there any other backs I am not aware of?

I don't do publisher completionism. Infact, i do the opposite (if that makes sense). I only have 999 games, games. Since i'm dutch ;) And i only want 999 games. Ergo; carcassonne that can be bought in my home country. I know, one off the few games that doesn't have language issues in its game components and i don't want outside versions. But still, it's the principil :) Plus, i consider my collection complete now altough i don't have the rarest items. Because they weren't published by 999 games.

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

Also;
NeoTroy Games (Turkey)  -  They just publish new edition base game. But as far as I know the producer of the tiles are the same with German edition.

I have a copy of the Фантасмагория (Bulgarian) old art base game. The tiles are with "C" of the back, standard size, same color with tiles from Hans im Glück (Germany), Z-Man Games (UK, US), Filosofia (French). The difference - cyrilic title and text on the box.

I added it to the list.  I love their logo.

I usually like to get English editions of games although I'll make an exception if the name of the game is the same in other languages (and typically if the rules are in French/Spanish/Italian/Portuguese, although it's usually easy enough to find English rules online). But for Carcassonne it quickly became all about the tiles, especially after I got a Basically Wooden box, and I wasn't bothered about publishers. I don't even have all the boxes anymore, but I have a combination of RGG, Z-Man, HiG, Filosofia and Devir.
