I guess it's almost a game that we play with HiG..
How far can they go before we give up?
We've seen people that are satisfied with their collection as it is, and do not buy/acquire more versions/expansions. Some do follow and keep trying to add to their collection.
And with this special limited edition, there are people that buy it, and as I understand they are made to order, it is not a big risk.
I personally am still in doubt about it, but to be honest, the more I see of it, the less tempted I am  :o

The thing that frustrates me most here is that HiG seems oblivious to the fact that this ^ is a game that we play. The fact that Carcassonne is hugely collectable to those of us who *must* have everything is entirely lost on them. It's fair enough if they recognise this and don't care, but every time they release something like the limited-edition boxed version of Markets of Leipzig exclusively at a German hobby fair, or a special edition of the basegame in a tin box with a brand new expansion exclusive through German supermarkets, the completionists among us have a little cry. :'(

"But worry not! We'll release a version of the same expansion through Cundco at some point!" Well, thanks, but now I'm going to have to get both versions of both things, and since I don't plan to be heading to Germany any time soon I'll be heading to eBay instead, and lining the pockets of some guy who bought 10 copies of this and is now selling them for over 1000% profit. I'd rather my money went to HiG, but this isn't a game they want to play with me...

When they published that the "exclusive" edition was already available, I sent an email to HiG to ask if the content was exclusive or a normal basic game. And they replied me that normal. The price was high due to the labor for the box. They tried to reduce it as much as possible but could not lower it further. It is sad that for example Catan has an exclusive version of its components much more attractive and better for a lot less money. For me, money is not a problem, I could buy it, but evaluating the exclusivity it offers and what it really is, I can order something similar in a traditional bookbinder shop for a lot less money, even the board for points. I still really expect an exclusive edition of design tiles and meeples from HiG. Maybe for the 20th anniversary? Who knows...

I guess if someone was to buy it, he already did, anyway, here is some photos of the piece I have received recently. It is all about looks, so will not comment much. If you have questions, fire away. I just have to tell you that opening is really awkward.

I ordered one! Since I love this game, this is a must have, I had to think twice, but now I took the decission:)

Cundco told me more than 40 are sold now. I ordered number 100/100, which means you can choose your number. More pics will follow!!!

Anyone else bought it?

Or you should have asked if you could get that number ;)

Can you not just buy another one if you wanted a specific number?

Now if there were 666 copies I'd have had to think long and hard. Fortunately........

I'm just glad this is only in the original artwork because I only collect the new artwork which means I don't feel compelled to buy this.
