Hey Willem, what is the special feature of Über Stock und Stein (limited edition)?

Could I ask you for a photo when you have some spare time to add to our WICA C&E page?  :red-meeple:


Über Stock und Stein (limited edition)



As far as I can tell, and what Decar told me, it's only that print on the front of the box, and another one on the back of the box that are different from the normal version of the game. The mentioning of Turkish rules is part of the seal. And I don't think that the German game came with Turkish rules, so that can be a special feature  ;D
The game is at my parents (in the NL), so other than this picture I don't have more. But I'm happy to send this one to you, or help finding other pictures for the WICA?

Thanks for the link!
But I think I'd like to have a wooden ark ???

How's the finnish ark? Cardboard?

Could you please PM me closeup pictures of the wooden ark and dimensions? Maybe I could buy the finnish version and craft a wooden ark  :yellow-meeple:


Yes, the Finnish version has a little cardboard square that goes in a plastic stand. Really not much special. But as the game was not widely released, it's difficult to find sometimes, and the Finnish version seems the best available. I have that one too.
The wooden ark was only available in the second edition in the US I believe.
The English version was released by Inspiration Games, which I have not heard much about (apart from their AotC that is)
I'll take some pictures and measurements of the wooden ark and share it later today!

It ships to Switzerland, so it should ship to the UK  :yellow-meeple:

They do but the postage is pretty fierce. It makes Cundco look reasonable.  ;)

Can't work out how to attach a screenshot, so old school:

AoC 20.08 euros (less than Finnish list price so presumably add VAT on top)
Priority Parcel (Zone 3) shipping 36.00 euros

I haven't found an option to change shipping.

Hope that helps.

Will

EDIT: Ha, managed to add screenshot by accident.

That really does make cundco look reasonable. I think I might hold out for now spent too much on spinoffs on ebay recently...

For Switzerland I paid more shipping costs than merchandise costs too...  :-\

And I hope I'm not gonna get custom taxes added to that :o

Thanks Willem for your reply. I will keep an eye if I found this box on the internet to put it on our WICA page, please let me know if you find something. Meanwhile, I will cut this one and add it to C&E page  :red-meeple:

Thanks!

I found these measures of the AoC by Chmura on CarcF:

https://www.carcassonne-forum.de/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=3267&p=59165#p59129

Quote
dimensions in mm, always length x width x height.

Handle: 42.04 × 4.90 × 4.82

Chest: 21.60 × 22.06 × 6.60

Cover: 10.70 × 11.16 × 4.04

To check total height: 15.46; the location of the chest on the handles is symmetrical; lids on the chest as well.

Here you are a picture from WICA:



EDIT: Updated URL. Didn't seem to work fine.

You know, it's the first time I check this topic.

it was my belief that it was only about Carcassonne material that we receive by the mail, but now I see that it is any boardgame.

So, I will post some pictures of the boardgames that I have receive recently (just give me the time to take the picture :P
Working on fan expansion: Dark Tower of city defence, the Dictator, the Rocker
