This sample set of metal meeples arrived today. I’ve added links to the Accessories page on WICA.

I decided that this classic cityscape drawing needed to be on a coffee mug.

Received two more D10 percentile dice from TheDiceShopOnline.com in brown. It was so underwhelming that I forgot to take a photo. Not sure why I didn't order enough for C3, because now I need to place another order. This month has already been too expensive, so I made myself a shopping list for next month.

Asmodee USA has finally posted Mists over Carcassonne on their webshop for preorder, which means they've either just received the container or will receive it soon.

General / About C3 expansions
« on: November 20, 2022, 12:39:11 PM »
The 2021/2022 Big Box has some C3 expansions included.

Other major expansions will get replaced with C3 versions when inventory of C2 is depleted.

Conversion of minor expansions will depend on sales forecasts when inventories are depleted.

Depends when you bought your C2 base game. The first releases had darker dirt in the cities, which was corrected in the most recent release.

The postwoman brought me a box of dice from Chessex today!





A set of regular and percentile d10’s in the six basic colours for my C3 set, plus full sets of percentile d10’s to upgrade my C1 and C2 sets. Not sure why I didn’t order the additional colours for my C3 set, because I am planning to order meeple sets soon.

I also ordered some new pink d10’s to replace the light purples in my C1 and C2 sets, which aren’t close enough to the meeple colour for my liking.

I have implemented all corrections and made a post on Facebook (and tagged Rachel Anthony-Rowlands who made the English PDF) to let people know that changes have been made in case they printed something out (this is why online rules are better than printed).

Might be a case when playing with The flier or Crop circles?

Yes, those are certainly ways for meeples to be deployed to a feature. I think the rules allow for it as they are written. I don't know how to do the expansion interaction thing, so if someone else wants to add it that would be much appreciated.

Quote
It needs to be clarified what happens when this feature joins another where meeples aren’t laid down. I suppose they should be affected, too.

I've added a footenote stating that when features are joined and one has meeples laid down, the other should too.

Quote
I think this is a card where a clarfication would be necessary. The wording of original rules seems to indicate that the card can be activated on incomplete features, too: it mentions that if another player activates a similar card on the same feature, the two cards cancel each other. (BTW: do they cancel each other when three or more players share majority and two of those players activate such a card?)

I've added the cancellation thing to the main text, and added a footnote for the situation where three or more players share majority. I've taken the position that the two players who play tiebreaker cards will both have +1 influence over the other players and share the majority between the two of them, to the exclusion of the other players. I think this makes the most sense.

This is wrong translation. The original Hungarian rules say that with this card you get 2 points for each meeple in your supply AT THE END OF THE GAME.

Thanks, I've made the correction!

There are no English versions of the Winter edition. Get yourself a German copy of the latest version. The only thing in German is the rules, and we have Wikicarpedia for that.

I printed the cards on 110lb cardstock. My colour printer does not automatically duplex, so first I printed one side, then flipped the sheets over to print the other side. The artwork lined up perfectly.

Then it was over to the crafting table where I have a self-healing cutting mat (on extended loan from my mom’s collection of supplies), a metal ruler, utility knife, and corner cutter (recommended to me by [mention]MMike [/mention]). Line up the ruler with the guide marks and cut away the excess, then divide the cards from each other. Then a marathon session on the corner rounder (3mm radius) to make it look professional.

It took me longer to create the tuckbox. My first attempt was slightly undersized in two dimensions, but once I fixed that it was easy. Cut out the box, use the metal ruler near the edge of the table to make nice clean folds, trim a few pieces deliberately leftover, put a little glue on the flap, and assemble.
