Hi Lewis, that's great.

Hi Lewis,
I already have a copy of Die Pest in shrink but am interested in your tidy box of Cult, Siege and Creativity.
I only want half of the bundle and am prepared to offer half of the asking price.
I have also emailed you on BGG regarding the non-Carcassonne games we discussed earlier.
Cheers, Will

Ha, I love it!

The frozen meeples are gorgeous, but you are limited to the 8 colours, and I would say that clear meeples are probably a better fit if you want the ‘classic’ phantom look. But those frozen meeples do look glorious on the table...

Thanks for a great afternoon and post-event write up! It was a treat to finally meet up in real life and play some games! I am looking forward to more gaming in person, the social side cannot be beaten.

Cubecassonne was great fun and a really engrossing variant that I hope to play again.

I am confident that Jessica absorbed some lessons from the assembled Carcassonne Central members! I certainly did, and it was a master-class in goodie bag delivery and collective collecting!

Hi carcie, I would suggest getting colours that allow you to take advantage of the beautiful mixed frozen meeple set as Phantoms. I use the white frozen with the base black set (but it would work well with grey or of course white) with the other base colours plus orange, pink and purple.

Disclaimer first: not sure if I should post this here as I have been accruing this stuff for the last year with family in France. It involves a pile of Carcassonne getting to me so I thought it was reasonable.

I wasn't expecting to have to wait so long but this little thing called COVID got in the way. Finally got to see my family over Easter, and as a bonus I got my hands on the stash.

It was quite large, but here is a selection of the highlights:

Some of these were gained with the assistance of Carcassonne Central members; thank you once again for your kind help. This is what makes this community great to be a part of.

Let’s hope the fans of a certain cooperative game aren’t planning some sneaky last minute cooperation.

Looks like Carcassonne is holding its 30-odd margin. Fantastic, only got to hold out until midnight BGG Central Time.

Well done to everyone who voted.

+1 merit to the 30-odd who cast the winning votes. You know who you are.

Some of the comments in the poll are really good. This one is my favourite so far I think:

"Pandemic is as much a coop game as a group project is a group project. My vote goes to Carcassonne - the fluffy game with razor blades inside it."

Dear fellow Carcassonne Central members,

Carcassonne is currently losing to Pandemic in this ‘voted for by fans’ poll and is in danger of being eliminated. If you like the idea of Carcassonne staying in contention, for fame, glory, and possibly greater presence on BGG, here is the link to the poll:

Hi chris6507, my Friday tiles have a turquoise coloured sea compared to the blue of the base game tiles. The Friday tiles make a separate island and don't touch the normal tiles so don't have to match exactly although I guess there is no reason why you couldn't build it adjacent to part of the main board. If it helps, I have the Sudsee version.
