What on earth ?!...

Now I know Die Kornkreise is one of the most pricey expansions, but this seems a little excessive... :o

In a few years, you may trade some tiles for a house...  :o

Come on, you know me better than that.
I'd only trade tiles for a castle from Germany in the south of France.

Judging from the photo, it is an unpunched, still shrinkwrapped sheat of tiles. However, I think no matter how pristine, it is simply not worth such a ridiculous amount of money - I am not sure what the seller was thinking ???... nobody is going to pay that much, people already think the actual market price is too high.

Last time I checked there was one copy for €99. I think this is just an "unforgivable" typo.

Yes, I think I agree with this. Nobody in their right mind, or even their wrong one, is going to charge almost €1k for this expansion, rare as it is. Not unless it comes in the form of a book that has been hand-made using traditional methods...

Perhaps they'll make a shelf using traditional methods for the book to go in.

Or maybe just another box to put the book box in.

If the box is shaped to look like a book it could be the Carcassonne Big Book Box Book Box.

If I forked out for that I'd expect some kind of box to keep it in though...
