General / Re: Goods tokens: C1 vs C2 vs C3
« on: January 05, 2023, 06:08:00 PM »
It is so! But even with Carcassonne 1 there are 2 types of tokens!

First type: Color drawing from the first side and black and white from the second side.
Second type: Color drawing from both sides.

The different C1 tokens also have different sizes. The tokens from my Exp.2 box are much larger than the ones from my Big Box 5.

C1 master race forever.

Not for me as I already own it but a fellow collector in Mexico forgot to add it to his cart when it was available. I'm in!

Strategy Guide / Re: Mayor - the failed concept
« on: November 14, 2022, 06:31:08 AM »
This is the first time I read about the Mayor being useless.

I've only used him in 2 large games (2 expansions and 2 minis at least), and the Mayor was the most FEARED meeple in both of them. Like, someone is building a city that starts to get large, and then you invade it with a Mayor that is worth *three* meeples on its own. Everyone was desperately trying to invade and defend with and against other Mayors, but sometimes their mayors were already deployed elsewhere and it got very strategic all around the board. The game got very intense with bigger cities having on average 3 meeples inside each.

If anything, it made the game more exciting.

The Wagon, though, now THAT is a difficult one. In any games we add it, it gets very rarely used and then it gets stuck on the board for a while until the 2nd feature is finished.

Never even bothered using them. They are so pointless as others have confirmed. I'd rather use them with house or fan expansion rules

Nice collection. Technically you're only missing the C1 river from BB5 which has sheep and vinyard tiles, and the extra river tiles from the GQ11 promo.

There's also the original C1 river II tiles that don't have the crown marks.

If in your group everyone is a die hard Carcassonne  fan and they have time, I guess a double set game wouldn't be so bad.

In my experience, though, after 1 hour of playing most people just want the game to be over already, and if there's time, play a different game afterwards like Catan or Stone Age. In the rare case that people want to play a more competitive and longer game, they ask me to add a few expansions. Each extra 6 tiles expansion adds around 15 minutes to the game session.

Exp.1 + Exp.2 + circus module from Exp.10 + signposts + phantom + German cathedrals + fruit trees + windrosen to start.

General / Re: Least fun Carcassonne game you've played?

Plague, tower, count, siege, barber-surgeon. Basically any expansion that forces you to make small cities because your meeples could be removed or make a big city worthless, plus expansions that add extra actions to almost every single turn, are the worst that there is in the world of Carcassonne.

It's no different from playing 2 different games in a row. I guess it depends on the group, my friends always want the game to be over whenever it lasts more than 1 and half hours.

Using double sets only makes the game lengthier, not more fun just longer. We'd rather pick up more expansions.

If you want it in English and it's missing a token, it should not be more than $40.

You're a bit late, they have become very rare and expensive over the years.

Your best shot would be browsing ebay-kleinangeizen every day for Carcassonne items and see if anyone lists a full C1 collection that includes these for sale. Something around 400 euro would be a great deal. You also need someone living in Germany to buy and ship it for you, since only people in Germany can buy from that site.

General / Re: 7th and 8th player meeple colour
« on: April 27, 2022, 02:08:56 PM »
The original edition has red, blue, green, yellow and black. The 6th player was grey. In the 2nd edition grey was changed to pink.

The "official" 7th and 8th colors in the old edition were pink and purple, in the Big Box 5. So those are the main 8 colors.

If you don't like grey, though, go with white and orange.
