Where to get phantom in bonus colors?
« on: February 03, 2021, 06:39:40 AM »
The Phantom pack includes the basic 6 colors, but where can one find other colors? (:violet-meeple: :pink-meeple: :orange-meeple: :white-meeple: etc.)
They aren't included in cundco's meeple sets nor anywhere else on their website as far as I know, so they probably don't have those colors either?
Are they non-existent?

Phantoms do not exist in other colors than CI base colors.

As an alternative, you can buy:

You can see the differences between the different kind of meeples here (frozen meeple is not included) :

Yeah I know the differences, I even started the topic you linked (lol).

As an alternative, you can buy:

Both packs miss grey tho :/ I might sound picky, but all I really just want is them all to visually look the same (I mean either all frozen or all teachers) and be transparent at least bit (like ghosts). I don't even really care about the dimensions as long as they all are the same, if they would be a mix from various packs it would bug the hell out of me.

This set has a grey one: https://www.spielematerial.de/en/transparent-meeples.html

I think that's where I got mine...

I did also see those, no grey, but they look like phantoms: https://www.spielematerial.de/en/transparente-meeples-17889.html

They are like teachers, but can be played as phantoms.

For what I know, it is not possible to get grey phantoms (as well as many other colors), as they do not exist. Teachers are a viable alternative then  :yellow-meeple:

Pretty much everybody uses transparent meeple set nowadays to represent phantoms of all colors. The set with 13 colors was available in Cundco, but seems to have been reduced to 10 color set since. Even that one is not in stock.
Anyway, true phantoms have been obsolete for few years now, specifically because of the lacking colors.

You may also have a look to the acrylic 12-meeple set available on MeepleSource.com:

https://www.meeplesource.com/proddetail.php?prod=AcrylicMeepleSampler



They also have a mini meeple version, just in case you want smaller phantoms for the Demo Spiel...  ;)

https://www.meeplesource.com/proddetail.php?prod=AcrylicMiniMeepleSampler

If you don't want to get a sampler with all the 12 colors, you can also get spare ones in 16mm or in 12mm.

Seen this one as well, but same story, missing grey…

Spare ones? Where? I can only find 10-piece sets on this page.

I purchased a few of the Ebay "Phantom Replicant Meeples" from the same seller as the previous posted link. They are good quality and work nicely as phantoms, however, they are not nearly as nice as the actual phantom meeples. In other words, they do the job and I would recommend them, but don't expect them to be as visually appealing as the originals! We usually use black or clear for grey.

I am going to order a set from MeepleSource myself. Thanks for the link!

Edit: I have attached pictures. The top row shows the official Carcassonne Phantoms, while the bottom row shows the ones ordered from the Ebay link. For anyone interested in specific Ebay colors pictured, as listed by the seller, they are (from left to right): orange, white, sky blue, purple, and brown.

I received my 12 translucent meeples from MeepleSource.com today. For anyone interested, they look to be exactly the same as the ones from Ebay. I'm guessing he is likely just a reseller. However, as I only ordered a few from the Ebay seller, I am curious to see the difference between the "grey" and "black" side by side if anyone orders the full set!
