In Spain and Latam we have our particular "April Fool's Day" on Dec 28th. That's why not everybody may share this fake news today with the same enthusiasm...  ;D

Confirmed by HiG in German: ????April, April????
Wir sind uns sicher, dass ihr es Alle geahnt habt. Unsere News von 1. April war ein Aprilscherz. Die Rückseite unserer Carcassonne Plättchen bleibt natürlich unverändert in allen zukünftigen Versionen und Erweiterungen.


It was a joke.

APRIL FOOLS

Nothing in the world would cause us to change the back of the Carcassonne tiles. We are always working to make the games as compatible as possible for you.

999Games also posted about their April Fool's prank:

https://www.999games.nl/tegelsleeves-voor-carcassonne?utm_source=fb&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=carcassonne&utm_content=sleeves

No, we do not come with tile sleeves. And no, there will be no new backsides on the tiles of all upcoming editions of Carcassonne. Carcassonne remains as usual, so you can just keep combining old and new expansions.

Have you signed up for the tile sleeve stock update? Cheated!
But we're going to make it right. Everyone who has responded to the stock update will receive an email from us with a one-time personal discount code in the coming week.

Regards,

999 Games

Sorry if you were expecting new tile backs and a new Carcassonne collection... At least some guys are getting a discount  :(y) :(y)

 ;D ;D ;D

HiG just posted this...

What do you think?

Um, I know it was a joke. But the more it sits with me, the more I like the card back design -  :pink-meeple:

Perhaps some bonus tile mechanic a la H&G will use these in the future...

bonus tile mechanic

I don't understand. Might you use some different words or otherwise define this? I don't mean to disrespect or otherwise annoy, I just don't understand and would like to share in your thought as your prior input is often valuable, in my opinion. -  :pink-meeple:

DIN0 may refer to the bonus tiles in Hunter and Gatherers featuring a different back than the other tiles in the game.

In Carcassonne, you have the Message tiles with different backs in Mini #2 - The Messages, for example.
