Obviously it only has the German rules with it, but this was easily solved as I found that it's already within the Annotated rules! So I've done a copy & paste job and got it all neat and tidy on a single A5 sheet, printed complete with diagrams.

Any chance you could upload that here?

The English rules for the Wind Roses:

S-CAR 6.3 - pages 151-152
(Translation and correction reading by obervet and kettlefish)

At CarcF you can find it here:
Carcassonne - Mini-Erweiterungen (HiG)-Mini-expansions (HiG) - Die Windrosen
Bekanntmachungen - Die Windrosen
http://www.carcassonne-forum.de/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=33

There you can find different languages for the Wind Roses

Thank you so much, kettlefish.

The wind roses arrived in the post today. It is very kind of you to send it to me when I have only been on the forums for a relatively short time. I am looking forward to playing it soon.

Thanks!

We appreciate that some of you are eager to get your hands on this expansion, but please do not send your address to kettlefish unless she asks for it. If anything, that could hurt your chances of being selected. Recipients are selected based on forum activity. Contribute enough good posts, and we'll notice.

Thanks for the link. I downloaded it but then I saw it was 267 pages so there is no way I will print it out. Fortunately I can read pdfs on my kindle. It takes a second to load a page when I use the goto page function but that is ok with me. I also put on it the rules to the fan-made expansions and my variant on the kindle as well. I find it easier to carry instead of a bunch of print out rulebooks. Plus I can always be able to read a book between games.

Thanks again for thinking of me for Wind Roses.

I too keep a copy on my phone. I printed out the 6.2 version, and will probably print out 6.4 when it is released.

GOT MY COPY YESTERDAY! This is awesome!

As BT and other have said, thank you Kettlefish (and the community at large) for this, especially considering I haven't been on the site for very long.

My next game of Carcassonne will mark the first time I use both WINDROSES and BOOTK. I would have neither of these expansions in my possession if it wasn't for this awesome community, so thanks again. I will be sure to post pictures when that game occurs.
A good board game brings people together.

I ordered By Order of the King a few days ago, so I am hoping to get that soon as well.
But with a little different back.

Thanks heaps to kettlefish, this forum and HiG for the Wind Roses.

I got rather excited when I realised what the envelope was, though the post office staff must have I was crazy!  Oh wait - they know me so they already knew that!  :-)

I'm getting a bit of a nice collection of German rules for the game.  Though I tend to find that my German language skills are at their best when everything is written in English!  :-)
