Not to be confused with the Jubbly River from Mr Freeze

Nor combined. Tiles and ice pops would not be a good combination

The entire river in the 20th anniversary is shown on the other thread, it seems unique enough to warrant another title.

The titles the River and the River II are the chosen titles from HiG.
The other titles are titles given by the community.
River 3 is just a variation on River 1. I'd rather this was BigBox 5 river.
I'm up for calling it the Jubilee River, as it's clearer what it is.
Agreed. I never use the term 'River III' that is just a frequent fan name. The more accurate name is River I BigBox 5 edition.
As for the 20th anniversary River, that is up for discussion. It is essentially another variant of CII River I, but it is extended by 5 brand new configuration tiles, has UV-print + easter eggs characteristic of that version, and sports a unique double-tile spring with a big 20. So I agree it is more than just another version of River I.
Decar's proposed Jubilee River is suitable. Alternative names: 20th anniversary River, 20th Jubilee River, River 20.

Agreed with he discussion... And the shorter the better, here is my opinion: "TMUP20AJRWDTS" code name for "The magnificient UV-printed 20th anniversaty Jubilee River with double-tile spring"...  >:D
No, seriously... "River 20" or River 20th or something like that...

River III was adopred also by HiG, when you check available spare tiles on condco.de https://cundco.de/media/pdf/g0/18/32/Plattchenliste-05-02-2021.pdf
They adopted list made by Carcassonne-Forum.de with tile list
River III is River from BigBox 2017 - it's nothing else like River I but with River symbol.

But River III is called also BigBox 5 (2014) river in C1 with 2 tiles with sheep and 2 tiles with vineyard - this is from list on carcassonne-forum.de (don't have link)

So We have River III C1 (BigBox5 - 2014) and River III C2 (BigBox6 - 2017) with difference that River III C2 is missing sheeps and vineyards.

So I'm for rename River III C2 BigBox 2017. This is just River I with expansion symbol.

Due there is 20 on spring double tile, I will call it River 20.
So How will be called this river depends partly on CarcF.de

Well, most of people have direct connections to HiG and also to Klaus-J├╝rgen Wrede

Well yes, but doesn't change the fact that River III is not an official name. It is in that document because it was made by fans who referred to it as such. But really it is just a version of River I (and there are many of those).

Anyway River 20 is a suitable name for the Jubilee edition. The new name is warranted by new layout.

The advantage of calling it the Jubilee 20 River is it tells people where it comes from, and given it's not available anywhere else yet, that makes it unambiguous.

Speaking of CarcF, here's the Google translation version of what's happening there:

I have one suggection.
Currently we have Fluss III and C2 - Fluss III which are different, because C1 Fluss III include also 2 tiles with sheep and 2 tiles with vineyard.
Currently we have new Fluss in 20 Aniiverasy Edition with double tile sping and 2 ends.
So there will be by comparision of tiles and design:
Fluss C1 = Fluss C2
Fluss II C1 = Fluss II C2
Fluss III C1 - this has no equivalend in C2
----------- - Fluss III C2 - same as Fluss C2 but with river symbol on tiles - and can be interpredet as Fluss III C1 replacement, which is not!
----------- - Fluss 20 C2 - from 20 Anniversary Edition

So we have 5 different Rivers by tiles and elements on tiles. Where Fluss I and Fluss II have equivalent in C1/C2. All other 3 rivers has no equivalent.
Just that Fluss III C2 equals Fluss C2.
Will be better name for Fluss III C2 something like Fluss C2+ or Fluss+ C2?

I cast my vote for "Jubilee River".

It's amazing how convoluted the rivers have become just from some minor variations.
