Favourite single Carcassonne item
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:00:19 AM »
If you could only retain 1 carcassonne item, what would it be. No matter the reason, burning house, need to sell for cash or whatever the doomsday scenario...... What is your one carc item that you will keep above all others?

Mine is the welcome tournament tile. Made by Decar, it was a surprise gift , not many exist, a reminder that I can beat other good players ony day.

I remember that game well! Or at least I think I do. Was it against Merlin and Rich the Fish?

Mine would probably be my "Jessica's Garden" tile...

A year or so ago I sent a set of tiles I'd made for giving away on these forums (the "British Moustaches" tiles) to KJW so that he could sign them. Jessica (my 7 y/o daughter) included a note she'd written about how much she enjoys playing Carcassonne with me, along with a couple of pictures she drew for him and her favourite tile from Kids of Carcassonne, for him to sign. A week or so later he returned the signed tiles, along with a special tile which he'd decorated with flowers and referred to as "Jessica's Garden". He wrote the rules for it on the back of a postcard, and included two special meeples (one blue and one pink) with drawn-on faces!

Obviously I'd never sell it (especially since it isn't even mine to sell), but this 1-off expansion designed and painted by KJW himself is a very special part of my collection! :(y)

Yes that was the game.

That's a tough question...
I guess my answer would be the souvenir of the Abbey tournament (a single Abbey tile with a normal back). That tile always reminds me how not creative I am and never had the idea of mixing the abbey with other normal tiles. That's a genius idea.
Now, not every forum member has a souvenir like this of limited amounts, so I'll confine my answer to the commercially available items or those used to be. It's my blue meeple.

That is a toughie- I think it would have to be the irreplaceable items and the rarities and the personalised items.  But one specifically???  A single item - too difficult!  My Rosco tree tile, my pewter initialled key ring, my personally messaged bridges castles and bizarres box from kjw - probably the key ring.

A set of things - would probably be the pewter meeple set in leather pouch.

I would say the recently received KJW signed tile. But I like my christmas present also very much.
If you want to play sent me a message.

I would save my diploma for 6th place in Carcassonne World championship'2016. It is very special to me and will always remind me that you should concentrate on a game till the very end.

I thought of this for you too. If I had anything similar it would immediately be at the top of my list!

I would say the base game with 70p scoreboard, since it is rare and the foundation of all of our entire collections.

I would have to say it’s one of three;
 
My signed KJW tiles which are a little bit special.

The signed Moustache tile designed and signed by the great man himself and an absolute treasure

Or the Leviathan tile together with the Leviathan blue dragon meeple designed by Wolnic and myself and one that I’m particularly proud of

Hmmm, tough one but because it’s so rare, it has to be.....

The Moustache signed tile.

Dan, stop signing those spare tiles you have now!!!
Oooo, look at all the meeples
