LEGO Carcassonne Link
« on: August 14, 2013, 12:50:13 AM »
Hello!

Thought I post a link to a very interesting take on Carcassonne tiles made with LEGO.

http://www.iamcal.com/lego-carcassonne/

If ever enough general LEGO parts obtained, I may try to at least make ONE tile myself just for fun.  :meeple:

Hi there!

This thread is ages old, but as you can see, people still dream of a Lego and Carcassonne crossover. The idea below is posted on the Lego Ideas site by user ABrickDreamer. You can support it if you like it, of course:

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/116b7d18-d2e8-4d05-af2a-dc5b438767f9

If the idea reaches 10,000 votes, it will be evaluated and considered for an official set. Anyone interested?  ;D
 
A sample image below:



Cheers!

One of the problems with these tiles is you can tell by the border if it's road, city or grass. :)

LEGO is at full blom in my house and had a chance to put one on display during an event. A rotating jet engine that crashed during move. :( But it all worked out.

To solve this issue, you would need a sticker around the tiles, or have blank LEGO tiles and use stickers to add the features, what would beat the original intent IMHO.

Can you share some videos of your collection and MOCs? It would be great! Thanks.

They never were, but they are a low-cost resource

So we have three alternatives so far:
1. Building the tile with LEGO and ignore the feature hints visible on the four sides of the tile (the version in the picture above)
2. Building the tile with LEGO and use a sticker to conceal the feature hints on the four sides of the tile
3. Building neutral tiles with LEGO and stick the landscape on top

Any other suggestions?

The essence of LEGO is building.
The essence of boardgames are cards.

You draw a card and build the tile depicted on it using trays with sorted LEGO parts.

This would be a lot of fun and then we'd have official LEGO meeples. I want them!

:)

PS: Most pictures I take of LEGO are on my Instagram @lord_galen.

True. I think that it's better only lego pieces for carcassonne.
