European Union
« on: February 12, 2020, 07:31:10 AM »
So I just received my third major expansion. Having received the base game at Christmas, I bought Traders & Builders [2] in January from Amazon UK as it was the only one (of the two I was sure I wanted at that time) that they had in English. Later in January my impatience for Inns & Cathedrals [1] resulted in me buying it, from the same source, in French. By the time February began I'd decided that Under The Big Top [10] was the third and final major expansion I wanted. For similar reasons I ended up buying it in German.

By then of course I had found the fabulous Wikicarpedia and so the English rules weren't going to be necessary anyway. In fact I ended up embracing the idea of buying it in German. I'm not going to be a Carcassonne completist, but I do understand the appeal of all these beautiful boxes, tiles and figures and the links between them in terms of theme, game mechanic and artwork. By adding a third language with my third expansion I've added another link. How many other, European, languages is the game available in I wonder? If ever I change my mind about the other major expansions, other languages will help me justify them to myself.  ;)

Also of course I could justify a post titled "European Union", sadly the only EU that the UK is still a part of.

  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • Polish
  • Italian

and I'm sure there are others ... maybe more than enough to buy each major expansion in a different language?

Thanks for the info wolnic.  :(y)

it's almost like you're trying to tempt me! ;)

But I think I should keep some languages in reserve for future expansions. I wonder what and when the next major expansion will be? (Goes to look at Wikicarpedia to see if there's s pattern to the sequence of release dates ...) Is there any information/opinion out there as to what HIG's plans are for the future of Carcassonne?

I suspect there are also different Scandinavian versions, or maybe just Swedish. Paul?

* 999 Games (Netherlands) --> Dutch
* Фантасмагория (Bulgaria) --> Bulgarian
* Lautapelit.fi (Finland) --> Finnish (Safari also in Norwegian/Swedish/Danish; Star Wars also in Swedish; Carcassonne Junior also in Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian)
* Κάισσα (Greece) --> Greek
* Brain Games (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) --> Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian
* メビウスゲームズ (Japan) --> Japanese

There is a Chinese, probably not legal version on Ali Express. I almost ended up buying because the low cost and lot of expansions, but later I read it somewhere the tile sizes are not compatible with the original.

Yes, it is a Chinese knock-off...  :'(

They don't have any shame in manufacturing replicas of anything and selling them at low priced all over the world.
