New in this morning!
I contacted a company called The SuperHeatedNeurons, as they have an English/Arabic version of the C2 base game. Their communication was really great, and very quickly they shipped out the game to me!

Last week it did end up being delivered in Qatar, to the surprise of a nice lady who apparently didn't want it (maybe she wasn't so nice after all?)
Anyway, they quickly fixed it and today i received this:


And the back:


Interestingly the Abbots are referred to as the Lords, which i think it a great name for them :D

The Lords are always busy praying in a monastery or smelling flowers in a garden... Fair enough!  ;D

Two packages arrived today! One from the United States with another ArtBin case to hold my C2 collection, and one from Cundco in Germany with lots of C2/C3 goodies: The Signposts, The Gifts, German Cathedrals, Castles in Germany, Monasteries of Germany, and a large 20th Anniversary tile bag which I'm counting on being larger than the one that comes with the 20th Anniversary Edition. I think it is the largest tile bag that I have now. Signposts and Gifts are new for C3 (both have the new logo); the three "Germany" mini expansions are reissues of C1 mini expansions with new C2 artwork.

Thanks to Halfling few days ago I've received great set of GQ tiles :D


@Scott, nice to see bigger photos from you ;D I finally cracked too and also ordered some expansions in C2, actually just a mini expansions, and not a few but half of them (x8) + maps (x5) so Taiwan won't be lonely :P

Received Carcassonne: Safari yesterday. I had the Spiel DOCH! tiles for it but never actually bought the game. My partner saw it on Monday in an ad, asked why we didn’t have it, and I promptly found it on clearance at a place where we had a gift card from Christmas. It arrived two days later! Haven’t played it yet but it’s now fully punched and I’ve read the rules. Triangular scoring? Weird but I’m intrigued.

Meanwhile, my CundCo Advent order was finally shipped after I contacted Hans im Glück on Facebook. Fingers crossed that it arrives before 2023. :D

Found another small package in my mailbox. Two sets of Phantoms (one to complete the missing colours in my C1 set, the other for my C2 set), replacement trade goods (I already have enough cloth tokens from last time), and a set of special figures.

Where did you get the trade goods, including cloth tokens?

Finally received my first ever Cundco order. It's like a very exciting little goody bag! :-D Funny though that the order I placed in November and the order I placed late January are both delivered/in Australia, yet the one ordered in December is not. Lol.

Anyways, couple of quick questions... Has anyone received bent tiles in the mail before and have any good ideas about how to straighten them out? Don't really have any hardcore equipment, just general household items if anyone has any ideas better than just squishing with books?
Second question, is the bag that comes with the School mini expansion serve any purpose or just a neat little bag for the expansion to be stored in?

I didn't take a picture, so for anyone interested it contained "the gifts", "Friday (For South Seas)", "The two tile Amazonas expansion (a bit naughty I know), "The School", "The Labyrinth" and "Purple and Pink Meeple sets". Overall though, very exciting little parcel. :-D

Congrats on your first Cundco orders!

Sounds like a nice set of expansions and playmaterial
If your tiles are bent, you can always contact cundco customer support. But as you're in Australia, it might be easier to try and flatten them under some books?

In terms of the school bag, it does not have any purpose in the game. I use them to store the schools I have, as well as having those little bags for storing meeple sets
