I knew he'd be to blame.

Only if the purpose for downloading them was to find some way of criticising them.

Maybe I've gone mad, but these links don't appear to be working at the moment.
1) Who knows.
2) They're not! It's almost as though HIG can't quite decide whether they want people to play with these rules or not ...

For reference the HIG page from which those links were taken - https://www.hans-im-glueck.de/news/aussergewoehnliche-zeiten.html

OK, I want to stress that I'm not here to have a go at HIG, but is this scenario typical? This is almost my first experience of any kind of product release having only discovered Carcassonne late last year.

It's kind of frustrating when, as a fan, I casually evangelise Carcassonne (as I have by posting these on Reddit for example), only for the links to be repeatedly broken. (And Carcassonne/HIG to be presented in an unflattering light as a result.)

PS I edited my post (probably more than once) after you quoted it, but then I'm not the manufacturer of a hugely successful game with fans hanging on my every word.

HiG is an enigma, sometimes what they do makes sense, some times it does not.

I think this is the first time HiG have simply produced a PDF of rules, so probably dont have the experience to maintain them on their website.

The links they are using are brittle, it means that things are lost easily!

Well, wouldn't like to pour gasoline on the fire but HiG updated their site several times in the past and made disappear fan stuff they previously had uploaded or even published... So we can expect anything.

At least the links for the Solo Variant and the PnP Demo Spiel will be broken during the long weekend. A great opportunity for fans missed IMHO.

Re my earlier post above. The links to the solo variants contained in that page are still broken.

However ...

The links contained in the page that Decar shared are now working again!

The file URLs have of course changed again!

Whether the content has changed again, I don't know. I'm close to being past caring.

HIG Solo Rules at this link

Looked hard and found this link on another site to download solo Carcassonne rules in English; the original link on HIG site has been removed, it seems.

https://images-geeknative-com.exactdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/21192738/CarcBasis_SoloRegel_ENG_Web.pdf

Better yet, here are the rules attached.
