Little find
« on: February 10, 2023, 05:12:31 PM »
Found this board games website:

boardgames.com

However, do not try to use it in this "raw" form; for some mysterious reason it will redirect you to amazon.com. Instead, click here:

https://boardgames.com/browse

Almost all the games that I found here are also in BGG. However, searching is different: in BGG, the search is done against the game's name. Here, it is done against the game's description.

I performed a search for, yes, you guessed it, Carcassonne. The results included the HiG games, official expansions, many fan expansions, including "The Constable" (Il Constabile), in original Italian and with a decent English translation (but not the best). I haven't seen this expansion anywhere else.

I also got to know many Carcassonne-inspired games. Kar-kas-onn is one such game for which I'm in contact with the author; perhaps will present it here at a later date.

There will be some references to Carcassonne that have nothing to do with this game, but not many. I think it is worth paying a visit, then cross-referencing with BGG.

The Kar-Kas-Onn page on BGG has a link to the original download file and a couple of images of demo games in play. It's a space-based "skin".

Anyone seen "Allotment Gardens"? It's an urban re-skinning, with several different designs, switching fields to be the concrete jungle, and the cities as the urban green space. There's also a page on BGG for it

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/57607/allotment-games

with a link to the original project website (2009) which contains a page detailing the changes, but the Internet Archive also has some more recent files (2017) and background info to the project

There's mention of "The Constable" in

https://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=138.0

which are postings taken from the old CarcC site

https://carcassonnecentral.com/forum/index.php?topic=670.0

It's already included in the Fan Expansion Selector as a "Musing" (currently M/124) as there were no links to finished documents.
