Printing consistency of Giochi Uniti (Italian) editions?
« on: May 03, 2018, 08:06:36 PM »
I'm thinking about buying a couple of Carcassonne-I expansions from the Italian Amazon (Tower and Princess & Dragon). All my other sets are mostly Rio Grande and HiG editions.

Does anyone know if the printing of the Giochi Uniti editions is comparable to the English/German editions? I'm thinking about quality of the cardstock and printing, as well as the coloration.

Thanks in advance.

I can't speak from personal experience but I'd guess aenima should be able to help out with this if you don't get a suitable response from anybody else.

My Catapult and Tower are from Giochi Uniti.  Attached is a photo of those tiles mixed in with my Zman base game.  The green is slightly lighter, but hardly noticeable.  The tiles feel to be of the same quality.

I've split the other posts that used to be here off into another topic as we had drifted from the original question into purposeless chat about Amazon.it and general standards/ expectations of customer service. These posts are available here for anyone who wishes to continue with that...
