Carcassonne Winter Edition
« on: November 26, 2023, 04:58:03 AM »
Hey All, Just hoping for a little help from you Carcassonne Geniuses. Always really, really wanted the Carcassone Winter edition and as there seemed to be only 3 copies left I went and ordered it from Amazon at the bellow link.
Just had a couple of questions if anyone cares to help:
1. This does appear to be a legit copy of the game right? Recently purchased a fake and don't want to repeat that again.
2. This is the Muller edition right?
3. Does this seem like a good deal? It's $70 Australian, which is a little expensive, but it was just a German exclusive right? And not likely to get any better offers on this side of the world am I?
4. Don't suppose there's anywhere reasonable to get Corn Cirles, is there?
If anyone thinks i've made a bad decision and thinks I should cancel it, i'd really appreciate the help. Cheers! :-D

It is a very disappointing experience indeed.

2. This is the Muller edition right?

Correct. This is what we call WE2: It includes The River but not The Abbot.

3. Does this seem like a good deal? It's $70 Australian, which is a little expensive, but it was just a German exclusive right? And not likely to get any better offers on this side of the world am I?

A bit expensive but it seems in line with other Carcassonne items on sale. If the shipping is okay, it may be a good deal.

This is WE2 on Amazon.de just in case you'd like to compare:

https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Asmodee-Carcassonne-Players-Minutes-Version/dp/B0BCD4FTVS/ref=sr_1_1?crid=33K6LBJQ1N1KX&keywords=carcassonne%2Bwinter%2Bedition&qid=1701032910&sprefix=cacassonne%2Bwinter%2Caps%2C267&sr=8-1&th=1

4. Don't suppose there's anywhere reasonable to get Corn Cirles, is there?

You may check on this German site, where you may find offers at a lower price than eBay. You will have to contact th seller to arrange the shipping.

If the source is reliable, there is no shame in getting Winter Edition stuff. It is a nice addition to anyone's collection... And witt the right fan expansions you may play a Winter + Summer Carcassonne game... ;D

Thank you very much. Haven't completely absolved my guilt for spending another $70, but I do feel a bit more comfortable about getting what i'm expecting. :-)
I must ask though, what is that expansion and where could I find it please? :-D

Just out of curiosity, I like to play Green+White sometimes (that is, combining a base game with a winter edition) and the fan expansion is not that needed. Place the two river source tiles close to each other in a way that will produce rivers in different directions. Then mix all the tiles in a bag and play: each drawn tile must be placed so that it touches at least one side of the same kind  O:-)
