It is well known for not having a watermark. It is indeed an error, but it has been corrected in BigBox 5 and all new releases.

Official Rules / Re: Table edge rules

I think also officially the edges of the table do not complete features, though if I recall correctly the situation is different with maps. There are several inconsistencies like this in the official rules.
Those aren't really inconsistencies, the maps simply have a special property where the edge of the legal placement area completes the features. Normal play does not have this and instead the features remain unfinished by default.

Once again I have to question the usefulness of the prime directive. They put it in all rulebooks saying they are not going to make official rulings for interacions, but then proceed to do it anyway when we ask them  ???
I'm not complining about the extra rule details of course, but if they're not going to stick to it, then why keep printing the formula into rulebooks?

I grant you this wish, but it is your fate to document all of these rule changes for all eternity!

I wish there was a Wheel of Fortune reprint in C3.

I just came here to say this is a really nice idea for a topic @kothmann and I'm surprised it didn't exist yet. +1 merit

Fascinating  :(y) I have never seen or even heard about these.
Pure speculation: Some german boxes which were already printed recieved these stickers after Carcassonne won SdJ to boost their selling. What about the contents of these boxes? re they identical to sticker-less german 2nd edition? Or is there some difference?

What ??

Yes that's right. It I recall, back in the day you could do around 8 turns in a single one if you got the right combination of tiles. Since then, and especially recently, there were a lot of extra turn mechanics added, making the potential that much greater. And all of the new additions are true extra turns, not the pseudo ones from builder or bazaar.
It would be interesting to calculate the maximum possible turns one can condense into a single turn.

I don't have anything on hand right now, but in the past I used the carcassonne frames along with punch out sheets from other games to make:
-tool stands
-test tube racks
-hangers for crystal growing
-home pyrotechnics

Seriously, gaming cardboard is one of the most versatile materials ever. Especially when it comes in all kinds of shapes.  :gray-meeple:

PS: I think I'm about to use them in the near future, so if I do, I'll post some pictures here.

I think the biggest appeal of the cfcf-J+ tile at the start is not neccessarily the points, but the fact that such city is very tile-costly for the opponent to invade or inconvenience.

General / Re: What to do with Carcassonne Tile Press Out Sheets...
« on: January 27, 2023, 10:50:22 AM » the frames aren't necessarily completely useless, but I'm not sure what else one would do with them.

Oh if only you knew... the wonders one can achieve with them.

Fiddling with Bazaars can nest numerous extra turns as well.

I always keep them. I always keep all the punch out sheets for all my games - so much potential uses for them...

Granted...but it wears down the tile edges and doesn't fit sleeved tiles.

I wish for Mists over Carcassonne to finally be available in the United States.

Granted, however the shipping fees are tripled unless there's mist outside on the day of arrival.

I wish I had more free time to work on my other Carcassonne projects.

This sounds like good fun to me! We could use the game notation created by @DIN0 for communicating moves, in addition to providing pictures of the updated landscape

NinjaEdit: Also would love to play, no color preference

Of course, everybody is free to use the notation! That is what it was made for after all  :D
