Oh, I didn't realise Board Game Extras had them in stock too, thanks for the heads up! - I've been holding off buying the tertiary colour sets to see if meeplesource had any kind of celebratory sale after moving their HQ, but I can now hopefully save a bit on shipping if I can get them from BGE.

edit: nope, they've marked the prices up, so its actually cheaper to have them shipped from the US.

Meeplesource are selling 19 piece player sets that include both the abbot and ringmaster in brown, Orange, white, pink, and purple. Unfortunately, they don't have  have any unpainted, but they do have a set in lime green.

Fair warning on the Meeplsource figures — while they are nice, high-quality pieces, the shapes, sizes, colors, and "style of color application" differ than the HiG figures. In particular, the Abbot and Mayor are quite a bit different (with the Mayor being even _less_ distinguishable from a large meeple than HiG's). The colors are more vibrant and applied thicker (leaving less of the wood grain to show through).

Still glad to have them, but there are differences to note!

Ditto on both. I appreciate the warning ... was planning to get some of the Meeplesource figures, but now I will reconsider.

The first step is admitting we were powerless....

Different from what?
  • Opaque followers?
  • The original teachers?
  • The phantoms?
  • The Jubilee-edition followers?
  • The Meeplesource translucents?
  • Each other?

The purple teacher is different than the purple/violet teacher from years ago

They look as if they were cast and hardened differently. To be seen with the brown ones.
That was not the case with the old ones.

Hurrah, I now have more teacher's than our local primary school.  So what do I do with them.
Cufflinks?   been there done that.
Earrings?   I only have 1 ear pierced, leaves 12.

I know.....how about a new scoring metric for Carcassonne?  That could work?

Idea for base game only.

Every time a new city is started a teacher is placed in it.  Teachers are claimed when a city is completed by the active player, not necessarily the scoring player.

At the end of the game the teacher meeples are scored as per the rules for the gold bars in the mini expansion The Gold Mines.
1-3 teachers @ 1 point each
4-6 teachers @ 2 points each
7-9 teachers @ 3 points each
10+ teachers @ 4 points each

It is possible that the teachers will run out, so adding the phantoms to this is a possibility.....as long as mixing teachers with phantoms doesn't irritate anyone's sensibiliites?...actually just do it.   >:D

You could always make a nipple chain.

But in all seriousness great ideal.

...and here are the two people are most interested in:





Originals on the left, new ones on the right.  As you can see they're bloody close.  New ones are sightly smaller and the purple pigment is ever slightly different.  For those people looking for these teachers, these are the next best thing!

And even in the teachers released up to this point there have been differences like this. Ive got several teachers that differ in thickness slightly, kinda like the difference in these.
Now the big question:
Why do others (in the UK) receive their order of them and i have not yet got my order!  :o
