Cooperation between HIG+ZMG, CarcC+CarcF
« on: March 22, 2014, 01:22:33 AM »
Some months ago Moritz Brunnhofer (HiG) asked me about a cooperation between the publisher and the forums CarcC and CarcF.

One part of the cooperation is some surprisings here and there...  ;D
- the surprising package
- the Wind Roses
- the surprising bag at the members meeting at Spiel 2013 in Essen
- the small surprising letter...

Even the author of the game Carcassonne - Klaus-Juergen Wrede works for the cooperation - he signs tiles or autograph cards for the community and he gave us the interview...
----------------------------------------------------
The other part is follows:

It was summer 2013 when Moritz Brunnhofer (HiG) had following idea:
The publisher like to work together with the authors of the fan-expansions.
They like to make some publicity for the community.

My work was that I have to ask the authors of CarcC which of the fan-expansions are the best. I need around 10 fan-expansions. We have here at the new CarcC 15 authors (at the old CarcC were 30 authors).

Only the active authors here at CarcC could work with this action.
I make a small contest in the hidden forum for them. They named me their ideas for fan-expansions.

During a few days I had a list with about 50 fan-expansions... Some of these fan-expansions were from the authors of the old CarcC forum. I can't make any contact to them. That means these fan-expansions had no choice, but there were still more than 40 fan-expansions in that list - I need only 10.

I decided to make it easier and asked them that they named me one or two of their own fan-expansions. This was great.

Now we have 11 authors with 16 fan-expansions from CarcC and 3 authors with 3 fan-expansions from CarcF.

so this means that some non-official expansions become official?

Wow, fantastic, congratulations to all.
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.

No, but some fan expansions are going to be featured on the HiG web site.

I think the choice of the "Easter Festival" doesn't depend on better quality as other expansions but it fits perfect for the easter-promo-actions of HiG. I think the next will be one of the well established authors here from carcassonne-central.

The fan-expansion from Fritz_Spinne is really funny.
There is a battle of Easter-Eggs.
