Maybe "The Plague" re-edition????

Haha! That would be fitting!  :black1-meeple:

CarcF was working on the conversion to C2. If so, we will finally be able to nail down some of the tricky details in the rules of this expansion, usually escaping the normal phases of a turn.  >:D

I thought I read somewhere that they were done converting it? I just joined over there the other day, so I can't see any of the download area yet to confirm...

Last time I checked they where putting together the rules to submit them to HiG for approval.

Morning all, and my first ever post here.
We were playing as a family the other night and I mentioned this thread. My youngest suggested a tile with a gameplay. If you play the tile and place a meeple on it, any players meeple within a 4 tile radius are removed and made to self isolate for a set number of turns. Either way I think the idea of a tile to aide charity is a great move.

Hi Lydster,

Congrats for your first post!

Thanks for sharing. We don't have a tile yet but I see it has captured our imagination.  ;D

Cheers!

Welcome to for the forum Lydster!  An interesting mechanism that your son has thought of, HiG had a mini-expansion in development, that was quite similar about 18 months ago.  I'm not sure if they continued developing it.

Generally on this thread, I think that fund-raising for the fight against COVID-19 is a worthy cause. I do not think that representing a pandemic that is estimated to take the lives of 350000 people in cardboard form is entirely tasteful. If I ask myself: If a loved one died, would I actually want to own and play Carcassonne with tiles that reproduce, and entirely belittles, that terrible experience?  I would not.

I'd rather see something that is unrelated, or at least embodies the sense of international cooperation towards the greater-good, or hope, without having to model the untimely deaths of citizens.

My thoughts are out to those fighting and affected by COVID-19.

Just to keep you in the loop.

Till now I got no response from Moritz. So I'm a little bit disappointed.
