HiG will be releasing it as kettlefish edited the German version. Why they haven't announced it yet is beyond me. Good luck convincing zman that it's worth publishing, though. They've been wholly uninspiring since they merged with Filosofia.

In the PDF it looks like they have fixed the missing watermark on one of the Hills & Sheep tiles. Can anyone confirm that? That and the river tiles would make this quite appealing.
The Sheep and Hills tile has a sheep watermark on it.
I already have the BigBox5.

The river tiles are great - they have a new watermark - see the rules of the BigBox5.

The tile of the Wheel of Fortune has a special surprising...

I don't see a BGG entry for Big Box 5. Someone has requested it?

All the tiles and the rules are available, what's special about the Wheel of Fortune tiles except that the expansion only includes 12 of them and the large start tile has been updated to be language independent?

Oh so that's what kettlefish was up to!  O:-) I will definitely hold off then, I wonder if this will be an Essen release. With the way things have been going with Z-Man + Carcassonne, we may just see this after all. Hopefully they don't stop their traction with Hills & Sheep...
PM me for for a list of remaining items from the Carcassonne Shoppe.

Italian version
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.

By the way quevy, I read the Italian wikipedia entry on Carcassonne last night and it's a bit behind in expansions. It's missing the minis, Hills and Sheep, monasteries in Germany, the phantom and probably some other things. A project for you?  :green-meeple:

I finally just compared my Wheel of Fortune start tile to that of Big Box 5 and I must say I prefer the original. I know the language was a problem for an international item such as this, but the large ugly symbols mean nothing now. Before they had simple, albeit sometimes hard to understand, instructions on the six sections of the wheel. The lack of those symbols means that players are forced to look into the rules booklet for clarification regarding each section. That isn't intuitive or progressing and I feel it was a mistake to do. Another way should have been found.

Does anyone have a link to where this Big Box can be purchased? Any language version would be fine. I haven't been able to find it online.

In Germany - the BigBox 5 (from 2014) will come to the market "Real-Kauf".

The last BigBoxes had a price around 30 EURO.
