Carcassonne - Safari
« on: April 23, 2018, 06:52:25 AM »
I think most people know about the new Carcassonne Spin-Off from the Around the World Series is continuing this year with a Safari theme.

But we've not started a post about it yet!

Steph Hodge provided some information on her BGG blog: All the Meeples of the Rainbow

She was at 'Gathering of Friends' this weekend

Here's the excerpt:

Quote
Next I got to try another one coming out but it is in early prototype forms. It is a new Carcassonne game called Safari! New to me!

In this game you will find a lot of familiar things to the Carc you know and love. There is a new way to score though. You will be looking for different types of animals in a given region. There are added jeeps that will give additional incentive and points for placing where they are. What changes are the cloister type buildings give you tokens and the tokens are used to form groups of different animals on the board in desert areas.

This part was clever and interesting. i was confused on it for most of the game so I lost horribly, but it was of course very good and I love Carc games in general. I found it to be unlike any other Carc game I played. Still doesn't hold my top most interested to play Carc though, but I would happily play anytime and look forward to seeing the final result!

Edit: The really confusing this is why they decided to name a spin-off after one of our members :D

I had a chance to play it this week thanks to our friends from HiGs. It itches me so much to write about it, but I promised not to. I will just look at the photos myself :)
Anyway, there are some nice twists to the rules that were not present in any of the past versions and I promise that no animals were harm during playthrough of this game.

Carcassonne Safari will get very nice graphics.

The test playing of this game was great at our fan meeting in Ostritz. Maj. Frost, it was nice to met you at the first international fan meeting week.

Christianmocking - I was asked to not share any photos of the game. If you have come by a photo of your own I ask that you respect the publisher's wishes also.

I don't believe this is your photo either - which means you have taken it without credit.  I think you may have taken it from a forum  (...Czech?) who are well known for copying other people's work from this forum and claiming it as their own.  I urge you to not provide them with any excuses to continue their malpractise.

Decar,
I think that Christianmocking has the picture from the HiG facebook page. There I found the picture of the CC-Safari box.
