Yes (I listed them from left to right).


Apologies, my word choice has been the source of some confusion in several threads lately. But thank you for clarifying, I had seen the forest and more river expansions but I hadn't yet seen the city with a river expansion in the downloads section yet.

Very impressive all around for sure. -  :pink-meeple:

If you are talking about the spare tiles list, that was merely adopted from CarcassonneForum, they are the ones who put River III there, it is not an official name.
They just spared them the work of constructing the list, and HiG didn't bother with something like that.
It doesn't make it official. It's just a fan name.

It's got sheep and vineyard, C2 River has garden, but they are still variants of River I, not a new River. In order for River (or any other "successor expansion") to have a number, it would need to have a new layout of the tiles, not just few added symbols - also the name with a number needs to come directly from HiG, not from the fans. Prime examples are of course River I & River II; Halflings I & Halflings II; Crop circles I & Crop circles II.

Another obvious indication is that HiG designates River I with the "waves" watermark, which is (as it should be) shared by C1 River I from BB5, and C2 River I from BB6.

Well folks, I couldn't decide on which C1 River to purchase, so I just tracked them all down. I also added a few extra fan made tiles. The C1 addiction has hit hard.

Did you also include the river from the PC/ CD-ROM version of the game which had the copy-protection codes on the back?

Ha ha, I didn't know these existed... Is there something Carcassonne related rarer than this river?

It's my job now that I'm past my thirties and have to be a grumpy old man!

Yes, that's it. I think there are rarer items but that's certainly one of the weirdest! See section #25 of the Carcassonne FAQ for more detail :D :(y)

The fronts are no different to regular River 1 but there's no difference between the River 2 tiles that come in the River 2 mini-expansion vs the ones that come with expansion #6 either so I thought it was still worth mentioning...

Can I give you a -1 for crushing my happiness :'(? Totally kidding ;D!

That is an awesome bit of history! But, I will try to be satisfied with the ones I have. As much as I like to collect, I am usually content with at least one of any expansion that has any functional difference (though my OCD has me buying more than I should at times!).

You think I'd have 257 merit if I allowed people to demerit me every time I crushed their happiness? -257 perhaps...
