I won't post any specific prices in case my wife ever reads this. Divorces can be so expensive nowadays, and I'd rather put the money towards more Carc stuff...

I've probably spent as much as anyone else on some of the rarer items including a first edition with 70pt score track, Le Sac, Mueller edition (in wrap) and RGG gold edition (in wrap), base game + CC1 edition (in wrap), the original teacher meeples in all six colours (remember those?), Cathars, Tunnels, Plague  (all with magazines of course), Russian tiles, Spiel tiles and so on. I've never added it all up, and I'm not sure I want to! :-[

It isn't just about the money though. Willem was spot on earlier when he said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that people collect what matters to them and everyone's collection is different and unique because of this. I've collected a lot of things, but there are some things I've ignored, such as the first 4 BBs, as I'm just not interested in them for whatever reason.

A lot of my collection hasn't cost me anything thanks to a lot of very kind and generous people here, and I'm proud to be able to say that I've helped others to fill any gaps in their collections in the same way too. For example, I've had two sets of the Russian tiles for free, so was able to give one set away to someone else here. Generosity goes a long way!

That's right. Each one adapts his collection to his tastes and preferences. For example, the BB5 is indispensable. The rest of Big Boxes are absurd unless you have OCD and need all BB so you don't have an anxiety attack. Although I think we all here have OCD to a greater or lesser extent hahaha.

I own BB5 (for the special River tile) and BB6 for the new-art 2012 minis.

Do any of the first four Big Boxes contain any exclusive content?

PS - 6400th post! :(y)

None that I know of except maybe for the manuals covering some of the interactions between expansions .

Funny story, my BB1 did.
When i bought it online (Second hand but i remember it being through Amazon), it came with the 5th expansion (Abbey&Mayor) included, as well as the 5 shrines and 5 King and Scout tiles from the 6th expansion (at least with that watermark)
I still keep those tiles in the BB1 :)

Watermarks in tiles... So satisfying...

I can’t find the amount I spent on Kornkeise but I think it was actually quite low. The highest I paid per tile is arguably Darmstadt, which cost me €37.00. A direct conversion makes that €13.33 per tile, but I also wanted the Zooloretto and Catan expansions, which were each one tile too, so it was closer to €7.40 per tile or other expansion. The highest amount I paid per tile exclusively (nothing extra) was just 23.0 USD for Die Katharer, which amounts to $5.75 per tile. Since I don’t read German well, both SpielDOCH! expansions are two tiles and also amount to about $5.50 per tile.
