Here in Italy we're still waiting for the C2 versions of exp. 5 and 8. If HiG released a new C3 edition it would be beyond ridiculous.

As I wrote before about Devir, in eshop of italian publisher Giochi Uniti, there is still Expansion 8 in C1 available. Expansion 5 in C1 not, so maybe they will publish C2 version this year.
Giochi Uniti has already a history of late localization for expansions. They once had so many leftover copies of the wooden edition of Catan Cities and Knights that only recently they managed to get rid of and now they are finally offering the new plastic edition. All other expansions were offered in the new edition since years. The same is happening with Carc expansions, apparently.

Congrats Gunho for your first post!

You help us start the year with hope in what's to come! Thanks!

Have you being playing Carcassonne for long? A C1 or a C2 fan? Small games or Mega Carcassonne?

Happy New Year!

Yes I have been playing Carcassonne for a while, probably about ten years. I started out on the old app for iPad, and then purchased Big Box 3. It is one of my family's favorite games. I recently got Hills and Sheep as well, and am trying to start playing a little more competitively on Asmodee's digital version. I picked it up when it offered for free on the Epic Games platform a little while back.

I prefer C1 as that is what most of my collection consists of, but I don't mind C2 either. I don't like really long games, so I prefer playing with 2 expansions maximum.

It's problem of only one language edition of games.
But sometimes it helps if somebody are looking for brand new old game where game material is language independent (like carcassonne).
Good example are still available minis C1 expansions on Slovak page (Mini 1-2) or Finland page (Mini 1-6)

I'm expecting a Big Box with some exclusive expansion in it.

Probably like the proto-big box Gold version.

I'm more interested in Ultimate Railroads.  Will this include both German and Russian Rail roads?  One has been out of print for quite a while.  I've been hoping to play it online.

Maybe it will be some collectible version of Carcassonne, like Gold/Leather book version years ago.
I have one collectible bible with very nice pictures in big format (larger than A4 / Letter).
Event it is protestant bible, and it was very educative for me (to see differences). I have some interesting books in bookshelf with different point of view of everything ;-) But those collectible  Carcassonne "Book" is obviously missing ;-)

Rumors have it that Ultimate Railroads will contain everything released so far for RRR: base game, German RR, American RR, DSP mini-expansion, Juri Dreigleisky engineer. Maybe even more, who knows?

I hope so, but maybe it isn't.  It's not too uncommon for things to not be quite perfect  ;)

I'm personally hoping that the Carcassonne 20th anniversary edition is like the Catan 25th anniversary edition - pieces with unique paint jobs and some helpful things like sleeves and trays, but no exclusive expansions.  It's bad enough that I had to get second copies of the base game and first and second expansions when I got the big box just to get the 7 mini expansions.  Don't do this to me again!  Also, I really hope it's not Carcassonne 3.0.  2.0 looks great and doesn't need to be updated, plus it hasn't been out for very long.

I also hope that there will be no Carcassonne 3.0 release any time soon. I think there would be few who would genuinly appreciate it now.
What I wish the so far mysterious release to contain: new version of Wheel of Fortune, two brand-new miniexpansions, one Festival 20 years edition (after two issues, this is also a bit of a tradition now, right?), two hard-to-find CC1 minis in the new artwork (my preffered choices would be Besiegers and Tunnels).
What I expect it to contain: basic game, Festival 20, one new and one remade miniexpansion.
