Or, we just get one of the Mahjong tables, with the 2 magnetic mahjong sets.
And then we get rid of all our carcassonne, and we play mahjong instead?

Need me one of those! Amazing!

That's a Majong table, right? But modified for Carcassonne? How does it get the tiles all facing down when it comes up?!  :o

Same here; +1 merit from me and good luck to anyone participating!

Yep, I counted the inn on the tile in the top right as the 4th expansion in this scenario
- Tunnels
- B,C&B
- Ukraine tile
- I&C

We'll find out eventually if I was right with this, or completely wrong   :o

Looking at the introduction of the quiz, we are informed about the number of expansions to look for:
Each question will be presented by a member of the Meeple Council, who will indicate the number of expansions but will not participate as a meeple in the scenario itself. Check the number of the space each of them occupy on the scoreboard above:
- Gingerbread Man     1 expansion
- Snowman2 expansions
- Santa Claus3 expansions
- Danisthirty4 expansions
- The Grinch5 expansions (or more, of course :o)

From this, I've been looking for the correct number of expansions, and have drawn my conclusions from there :)

Regarding the rules for the Ukraine tile, on Cundco it also states:

There are no special rules. You can use it as a normal tile, as an additional tile for the 1st expansion Inns and Cathedrals, where it can be used as an inn, and/or as an additional tile for the mini-expansion The Crop Circles.

So I would agree that there is no need for rules for the tile, as the features only come in to effect when using with the I&C or CC expansions. It can be noted that they are there perhaps?

News and Events / UKGE article about Carcassonne (Museum)
« on: November 24, 2022, 08:44:48 AM »
At Essen, thanks to introductions by @Decar and @danisthirty , I met James from the UKGE.
They organise the largest hobby games convention in the UK, and this is also where the UK championships for Carcassonne are held.

I was contacted by them recently, as they remembered our chat and still had thei Carcassonne Museum membership card (I knew they came in handy!)

They have now done an article about the Carcassonne Museum on their website, you can find it here:

On their website, they state it will be available from January 6th. So the container is likely at the least very close  ;D

Plus, it felt like the person on BGG assumed the difference in colour of the backs was directly related to the artwork. Once they were seeing C2 and C3, all differences seemed to be assumed to be related to that.

As Whaleyland said, there can be differences in the tile backs in terms of colour, but this has been seem before within artstyle releases. Different print runs will get that.
And sometimes it might be a bigger difference, but that doesn't mean the whole artwork is incompatible.
If it is really really bad, it can also be a misprint.

I wonder how they would feel about the 50 shades of green that exist in the game. This is more prominent in C1, but within C2&C3 it can also be seen

Spiel 14-17 were printed together, and they are C2.0
From then on, they seem to have been printed year by year, and have been in C2.1
The Spiel 22 tile is tricky to say. I keep my Spiel tiles all together in my C2 playset, but you can also call it C3.

Spiel 21 was definitely C2.1

HiG have released some new information about the Advent Promo today!

A lot of things are showing in the video, seems like Paleo Hornets, Carcassonne Japanese Temples, Candles, and a lot more!

More information should be available today at 7pm (Germany time)

Regarding the Spiel tile, this is also confirmed to be available tomorrow:

From 5pm tomorrow (Germany time)

I would argue it's not Santa Claus, but Sinterklaas, but close enough  ;D

Thanks for confirming!
