Wow!!!  :(y) ;D
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

English name is pretty obvious :)
As I understood correctly, we need to offer a German name for this game in order to take part in a lottery, am I right?
In this case I will ask for a help from my wife ;)

I'm just going to go and say Wilder Westen. I'm quite happy with this new game and sad that I won't be able to get it for a few years. I hope Z-man bundles it with its inevitable winter expansion, at least. Friday really should have been bundled with South Seas in the US market.

Finally they released something about the new spin-off! It was eating me up inside not saying anything  :-X ... It's going to be interesting to see what the mechanics are!
PM me for for a list of remaining items from the Carcassonne Shoppe.

I like that more than California  ::)

I believe that there will be no roads but rivers where you search for the gold. Maybe there could be a rail, but I see it quite strange.

Yeah, that depends on the actual theme. If it's Wild West, then the railroad would make more sense to have than dirt roads. If it's the Gold Rush, then roads would make more sense – railroads weren't in the west that early.

I’m not quite sure what we’re supposed to be guessing but here are a couple of (fairly obvious) names I like the sound of:

- Carcassonne: Wild West
- Carcassonne: Cowboys and Indians ?
- Carcassonne: Gold Fever/ The Gold Rush

(can someone please point me in the right direction if I’m barking up the wrong tree here?)

As for the mechanics, I have no idea. But I like the idea that a meeple in a city (or equivalent) could be a Sheriff! I also like to imagine that horses could be involved somehow, and that points could be quite closely linked to gold or discovering it somehow.
