[Ideas | Predictions] Upcoming Expansions
« on: December 07, 2017, 03:35:16 AM »
Hi guys!

I can't stop thinking about what will be the next thing in line for Carcassone. Do you have any predictions?

I'm pretty confident on them releasing a new major expansion next year. But since I'm quite new here maybe this is the normal order of things and they release 1 major expansion a year.

Anyway, I would also really like an individual release of the minis with the new art style, since currently, these are only obtainable buying the Big Box and I would like to have them neatly organized on those little tuck boxes.

Cool thread, thanks for starting it.

A new large expansion came out this year so it's not certain another one will come next year. If I had to guess, I'd say that there won't be another large expansion next year. There was a three-year gap between Expansions 9 and 10.

Regarding separate availability of the minis, this is, unfortunately, one of the ongoing issues of Carcassonne fandom - namely that small things often come inside Big Boxes or paired with the base game and are often not made available separately - the River (III) is one example from Big Box 5. Sometimes these things are made available separately online at Cundco (the official shop of the publisher HiG), and sometimes they aren't. This dilemma has resulted, by pure coincidence, in danisthirty owning exactly as many copies of the base game as his age in years (37 in both cases).

I'm not sure what I expect for next year. I'm not really following the latest developments anyway because I am one of those stubborn people who likes the old art and doesn't like the new art, so my Carcassonne buying/collecting is pretty much over at this point.

Expansion 9 in the new art is expected to be released next year.
I don't think another big expansion will be released, but maybe some of the mini's will be released, that would be nice :)

Probably expansion 7, the catapult?

Very revealing and sad. At least, very sad for my wallet...  ;D

I have read some posts by danisthirty regarding him shooting for some world records. Pretty sure he is on the good road to achieving them if he hasn't achieved them already!

I will wait until we get the major expansions with the new art and then, if the minis aren't out, I'll think about buying the big box.

Expansion 9 in the new art is expected to be released next year.

Nice! That makes all the major expansions, isn't it? Since we will be buying one major expansion a month beginning in January (and Inns & Cathedrals is already part of our collection) this will make it easier to get them all next year.

Regarding this expansion. Is it really worth it? At least for someone who wants a purely strategic Carcassone, not so much a dexterity one.

Well, maybe we'll buy it anyway for the sake of completionism.

It is my kids favorite. Without kids, I’d pass on Catapult.

Thanks Amorpheus! I guess it would do it for a party type Cracassone game with friends.

It would, but hopefully they improve upon the catapult if indeed they do reissue it in the new style (I’m doubting they will). The old catapult is barely functional.

They released Count, King, and Robber in the new art.  That one is almost as bad as the Catapult.  Will they release the Wheel of Fortune too?   I may actually buy that just to have it.

For me the new edition of the expansion 7 will be The wheel of fortune (only as an expansion)...

I would  prefer any  new expansion/mini expansion in old art (it's  impossible, I know).

I'm hoping for 6, 8, and 9 in the new art in English. Hopefully we'll get a new small expansion. I would like to see some of the other small expansions combined into large expansion 11 (Maybe Siege, German Cathedrals, and German Castles). Oh and I'd totally buy Wheel of Fortune if they re-released it in the new art.

I can definitely see Wheel Of Fortune and Hills & Sheep being released in the new art style.  I too would love to see a new collection of smaller expansions: Siege, German Cathedrals and German castles in the new art style would be awesome!  I just don't know how they would name it, since there are Cathedrals in Inns & Cathedrals and Castles in Bridges Castles and Bazaars.

hey wait is BCB released in the new art style yet?
