Official Rules / Exp. 11 - Ghosts, Castles and Cemeteries
« on: September 14, 2022, 04:59:34 AM »
HiG has declared in the Exp. 11 rules that there are no official rules when combining it with other expansions, major or minor. This seems to have created some response from some fans in the comunity, as you can see in the following ongoing discussion on Reddit started by u/threelonmusketeers, a fellow fan and member of the community:

Here you are his initial list of questions:

Exp. 2 - Traders &  Builders

* Are pigs or builders afraid of ghosts?

Exp. 3 - The Princess & the Dragon

Exp. 7 - The Catapult

* Can ghosts be removed by catapult knock out tokens?

* How do ghosts affect scoring of the "Cash Out" gift?

General / Carcassonne Spain - Podcasts, Twitch and other initiatives
« on: April 30, 2022, 11:27:05 AM »
Dear all!

Carcassonne Spain was founded a few months back. Its members got together after meeting online while playing on BGA during the pandemic. Some of them even participated in the world championship 2021 at Essen.

The organization is sponsoring various initiatives to reach out to Spanish-speaking Carcassonne fans for starters. If you are interested you may join the Carcassonne Spain group on Telegram:

A Discord server is also available, if you are interested in joining, just send me a PM.

A Carcassonne Spain member -Joaquin- is running a podcast called Meeple Podcast, where he interviews members of the Spanish community and some renown players from other countries such as Melvin Quaresma (Posdcast #4) or Alexey Pegushev (Podcast #9). These two are in English, so some of you may be interested in listening to them. You may find the podcast on Spotify:

Another initiative is a Twitch channel run by Frank, where some interesting games on BGA are analyzed for the enlightment of the community. You can find the channel here:

News and Events / Castles in Germany and The Festival in C3
« on: April 19, 2022, 04:48:06 AM »
Dear all,

Cundco is listing the following expansions:

Carcassonne - Burgen in Deutschland C3 (DE/EN)

Carcassonne - Das Fest C3 (DE/EN)

These item names have changed in German only but the rest of the item description, pictures and rules are still reflecting the C2 version both in German and English.

I asked Cundco about all this and they confirmed they are now selling the C3 versions although they couldn't update the webshop accordingly due to the Easter break. :o

Let's see if they update everything accordingly in the following days.

Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / Easter Bunny Quiz 2022
« on: April 17, 2022, 07:22:42 AM »
Dear all!

In order to celebrate Easter, the Easter bunny wants to challenge you all with the following questions. But first, a little introduction...

Yellow places the Easter Bunny tile framed in yellow. The Easter bunny is placed on the tile right away as a result and will move from there.

Q1.1: How many points does each player score?

Q1.2: How many Easter eggs does each player get? Take into account that the Easter bunny will move following the sequence given by the colored circles: Yellow 1 - Yellow 2 - Yellow 3 - Red 1 - Blue 1 - Blue 2.

The game will continue after this turn, so no end game scoring is required.

Happy Easter!
