I would buy The Festival again if the expansion finally had a proper watermark, but alas it does not, so I see no reason to own it. After all this time, I still don't understand why The Festival doesn't have a watermark. Expansion elements don't stop other expansion tiles from having them.

Well, this is grossly dissapointing. I would be quite happy with various C3 variants from, let´say, a version with no number and just vague "celebration features and fireworks" to "The Festival 20" with a matching number and ideally also suitable watermark, and I would probably buy any of such in the end. But I really see no point of a remake of this kind. I will for sure not buy this one, my general dislike of C3 sneaky introduction is even fostered by such lame and unconceptual remake that will please few but dissapoint many.

Cundco just reverted the German description of Castles in Germany to reflect it is a C2 version. :o

Chaos seems to have taken over... Are Cundco just flushing their remaining stock? Was it just an error? Let's see if they reply to @Benny with an explanation...

The Festival in C3 is confirmed to be on sale even if the pictures are from its C2 counterpart.

Today I received an answer from CundCo. With his agreement here the infos:

"Yes there is a C3 version of the castles.
Currently I have in the store again the C2 version of the castle for sale until it is sold out. After that (I guess in the next week) I will rebrand the item to C3 and then you will be able to order it normally.
Then you can be sure to get the right item, because there will be no C2 castles anymore. ... "

Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

But: if no one orders the old version of the expansion it will last a bit longer until the new one will be available.  ;)

CundCo told me in a short phone call that the c3 version will be identifiable in the item description and they will change the item image.
At the moment it is not clear if the Carcassonne logo will also be changed in the rules ???. But the copyright date is set to the current year.

So they knowingly and consciously sold you a C2 expansion that was advertised as C3 on their website. Not the greatest practice

Hi @Benny !

It's a pity they keep us waiting a bit longer. Will they send you the C3 version or will you have to buy it again?

I was about to submit my order when you posted about this issue... I'll have to sit tight and wait. >:(

Thanks for the update.

By the way, I got a similar answer from Cundco just now...

We have some last Castles in C2 left in stock, if they are sold out we will start to sell the C3 Castles.

Partially I understand this step. If they will change 15 to 20 then it will be mess between 20th anniversary expansion with this expansion. Maybe sulotoon was to remove year and kept there just fireworks emoji code312]

That's the expansion for the 15th anniversary, it will always say 15 no matter the edition.

20th anniversary got a full edition on its own.

We're almost near the 25th...
