New Spiel 2016 Releases
« on: October 08, 2016, 05:13:34 PM »
Next week at the Spiel 2016 in Essen:

There will be a new mini-expansion - as far as I know of - only in the CC II - New Edition from CundCo.
This mini-expansion is not a "republished expansion" it was never an expansion for the classical CC.

----------------------
In a few weeks/months there will come the next big republished expansion for the CC II - New Edition:
- Bridges, Castles, Bazaars

Sorry for the split-topic kettlefish, but I didn't want your new post to get lost in the mire that is the republished expansions thread. Anyway, you had mostly new information there, so that's something important. For everybody else...

There is a new expansion coming out next week at Spielfest: Carcassonne: Die Wachtürme (The Watchtowers). This expansion will be in the new game art and will cost €6,50 through CundCo once released. There has been some scattered discussion on this expansion throughout the forums but nothing definitive until now. The rules, number of tiles, and graphic design are all still unknown but should be revealed shortly.

Also, as stated by kettlefish above, Carcassonne: Bridges, Castles & Bazaars will be reprinted in the new game art before the end of the year. This confirms suspicions that The Catapult will be skipped for the time-being, although whether it is permanently skipped or the later two expansions are renumbered has yet to be announced. King, Count & Cult will also be skipped at this moment, although it seems fairly certain that that expansion will see a later release. To put this practice in context, Expansion 4: The Tower was recently skipped in favour of Expansion 5: Abbey & Mayor, but then subsequently released in the new art a little while afterwards.

Most of us will see the first time "Carcassonne Amazonas" at the Spiel 2016 in Essen.

The mini-expansion "Cathedrals in Germany" is also back at the CundCo Shop at the Spiel 2016 in Essen.

Also HiG has other games:
- an expansion for Russian Railroads „American Railroads“
- a new game "First Class"
see a small view at HiG facebook

I am going to speculate. I think watchtowers will be a new feature that will allow one to get points from the boundary of a city without competing on the city itself.

For me, this year, it's only going to be Amazonas (if Zman brings enough copies). Kinda hoped there would be a small promo for it as well, like with South Seas and Gold Rush, but oh well...  :)

The small expansions for Gold Rush and South Seas came one year after the game, if I'm not mistaken.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure they were released at the same time a second the game. Same with the Gingerbread Man for Winter Edition. Amazonas is looking to be the first Around the World game without a release promo.

Yes , Gingerbread, Friday and Sheriff were released simultaneously with their base games.

Artwork for the Watchtowers has just been released in the Cundco newsletter.

Edit: The email also says mentions that the Winter Edition expansion will be available.

Decar, is it possible to create the picture a bit smaller?
CarcC is not the owner of this graphics - the owner is HiG/CundCo.

Wow, in the excitement I copied the image from the email.  It didn't look so big there.

Updated orignal post with a x4 smaller image

Can someone edit up some of these tiles Carc 1 style? I don't feel like buying the new art just for one mini expansion
I don´t trust you with putting back my tiles. You might put them back upside down...
