Do you think they'll make these broadly available or will they print them in 18 copies (for the joy of eBay scalpers?)

Thanks for your feedback!

Thank YOU for your tip! I now own every major expansion from both C2 and C1. Very happy  :green-meeple:

Official Rules / Re: Can bridges lead to an open field?

The official rule does not seem to mention this
We were misled by this. Sometimes the rules imply something but in the heat of the game we tend to read them strictly. Thanks to your clarifications

The completition of one castle will trigger the completition of the second one  :yellow-meeple:
There are many clarifications about such scenarios in,_Castles_and_Bazaars and,_Castles_and_Bazaars_(1st_edition) see footnotes.

Tried to do that but we got lost. A little help?  :green-meeple: :gray-meeple: Gray gets 5 points for the road. Then both gray and green get 5 points because the just finished road is a neighbouring feature of both their castles. But then gray triggers the completion to green AND green triggers the completion to gray? It seems weird.

Official Rules / Can bridges lead to an open field?

Basically, is the placement of bridge A legal? All of the example we can find show bridges leading to roads, but the rules only say that both of the bridge's ends must stay on a field, not that it has to lead to another road. But this feels weird because basically "kills" a road, that is now uncompletable.

Official Rules / Two castles close to each other: what happens in this case?

Look at the following scenario:

Let's say gray close the road by placing a tile in the yellow X spot.
How many points do they get? How many points does green get instead?

The correct rules are also available on Wikicarpedia;)
Yeah I always use that, but I missed the footnote where this is explained  ;D

you can place a tower floor on any turn, not just one in which you draw a tile with a tower foundation.
What  :o ! I've always played wrong then... this makes sense though, and actually solves all of my doubts. Well thanks  :)

Sorry if this is already answered somewhere, we couldn't find a solution.
In a 2-people game involving the Tower expansion, they start with 10 tower floors each. My question is simple: what if one player draws 11 tower tiles? Two possibilities:
  • the tile is played like a normal, non-Towery tile, without any Tower action allowed
  • the player is allowed to get another tower floor from the box and play their Tower action of choice
Given that everyone can use their own house rules, what's the "official" answer? Thanks.

Yesterday I used the C1 version of Princess & Dragon for the first time since I've started playing Carcassonne. Oh the horror...

The C2 version of this tile is also ugly but is definitely less ugly and, in fact, never hurt my eyes before:

According to WICA:
However, the expansion was sanctioned by Klaus-Jürgen Wrede himself (there is even an image of a signed tile on
So, if I get K-JW to sign my belly, would that mean that *I* am part of the game now?  ???  ;D

final video
Did they add a second table to expand the play area? I thought the boundaries of the table were sacred in official tournaments (they surely are in my home  ;D )

If you do not care about the language, here is probably an edition of Devir from Spain.
Thank you for the info! Just purchased a copy, they have another one if anyone is interested. Asked about it and they confirmed it's C1. Total price for Italy 35€ (16€ + 19€ shipping)

So, since I've started my quest of collecting every piece of the game, I more or less managed to find everything here or there (Amazon, eBay, Vinted, here on this forum...) but I'm failing to find a decent copy of the C1 version of Hills and Sheeps.
It's very frustrating because it's the only "major" piece of Carcassonne that I'm missing, but it's nowhere to be found (unless you want to spend 150 USD for it).
I'm totally OK with "minor" pieces to be hard to find or expensive but why is this particular extension so unfindable at a decent price? Even The Catapult is way easier to find than this.
