Latest thing from Basically Wooden
« on: May 14, 2015, 12:07:53 AM »
Found these beauties on eBay last night.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Castle-Tokens-for-Carcassonne-and-other-board-games-solid-wood/171786737075?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D30989%26meid%3De45eabe5485b4bc1ba1a83942fef0903%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D171776008788

I have always liked the 3D element you get from the bridges and towers - well now there's the opportunity to do the same with the castles.  Personally, I think they look fantastic.

Beautiful castles, but I think they should be larger (4,5 x 2,5 cm) and not like a rectangle for Carcassonne.

I already have my set of these castles and I think the size is great. I like how it fits inside the city.

These look great. When I bought a bunch of pieces to pimp my game one of my biggest qualms was how basic the spielmaterial castle pieces looked. http://www.spielematerial.de/en/castles.html

These look fantastic. Does Basically-Wooden have a website? Or maybe they sell only through Ebay?
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

Meanwhile, I have asked them for tower pieces next. They said they'd look into it after the UK Games Expo because they're busy with that at the moment.

I suppose a pimped catapult can't be too far away... emoji code13]

A few more castles:







Edit: I probably should have left a castle or two without a follower. Oh well, too late now.

i think they are a bit small! if they were a bit bigger so the followers could just be a little bit in the castle, it would look nicer if you put 1 on it.

So glad you included a farmer in your photo. It would actually have hurt me to look at it if you hadn't included one (even though one of the castles isn't on the farm).

Castles look great, but they do look a bit small. I'll have a look out for Basically Wooden on Sunday and see what I think of them.

It seemed like such a great farm so I made sure to get a green farmer on it! I'd join the last castle to the farm on my next turn :)

The significance of it being a green farmer wasn't wasted on me ;)

Ha ha  :(y) - Purple will not be popular for that! But I can't help but feel that everyone else kind of deserves this for using their castles when there's so little to go for other than perhaps that cloister...

Basically Wooden has a new website, and a new Carcassonne accessory: wooden score tokens. These look really great because you put them under your meeple on the scoretrack, so that you can see where everyone is directly on the scoretrack without having to look for score tiles in each player's supply.
