General / CarcII Expansions Made Into CarcI Artwork?
« on: May 30, 2020, 08:58:39 AM »
Does anyone know if some expansions that have only been released in the new artwork (Gardens, Watchtowers and Under The Big Top) are being recreated by some artist back into the original artwork (of course, this wouldn't be an official release)?

Anything Else / Sorry For Being Away
« on: January 11, 2018, 02:29:30 PM »
Sorry for being away from Carcassonne Central and from competing in the mini league. I've been having a few issues and life changes lately. Anyway, I'm back! So when is the next league?

Online Games and Competitions / Problems Using JCZ on Surface Pro
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:42:59 AM »
Hello All!

After my eventful game on JCZ with Jéré today I tried to play on JCZ on my Surface Pro 4. I could download the executable file and Java, but found that I couldn't create an online session through this. I could, however, log in on my pc.

Any thoughts?

I have been trying to use JCZ for the first time ever and I am coming across some problems.

I do have Java installed and have been trying to open JCZ using Java, but the icon doesn't appear. Also, whenever I try and run JCZ, a window comes up, then disappears, and then it asks if I want to run or save the file. After trying this, I repeat the process and still can't get onto JCZ. I have tried to run this in Microsoft Edge, IE 11 and Chrome but none of them work.

Any suggestions?

General / Thoughts On Ark Of The Covenant

I will soon be getting this Carcassonne spin-off from Paul! In anticipation, what are your thoughts about this game?

I've spoken to a friend of mine who has it and he loves it, but is that the general consensus or is he really bias because he's my friend?

Official Rules / Will Labyrinth Feature in CAR?
« on: February 04, 2017, 03:19:10 AM »
Will there be a section in CAR for the Labyrinth tile? I ask because plenty of people play with either one or both versions of the tiles (I only use Carc 1 tile) and it could do with an official clarification of rules. I understand this has been covered to some degree in another post but without an official ruling.

General / Watchtowers Expansion and Old Carcassonne Together?
« on: February 04, 2017, 03:00:06 AM »
Hello people!

This is just a general question about the playability of the Watchtowers expansion with the original Carcassonne game. Do they work and look well together?

The completionist in me wants to buy Watchtowers but, since this will be the only Carc 2 expansion I will own, I am dubious about how well it looks and plays in general.

Hope all is well!

The Marketplace / Where To Buy German Cathedrals
« on: April 27, 2016, 04:42:04 AM »
Not sure if this is the best place to put this forum post but.....

I've just managed to purchase a set of German Cathdrals from for £6.00. Not sure how much stock they'll have but best get there before they go (and you'll then have to wait until October on Cundco!)

Happy buying Carc Peeps!

Official Rules / Abbots & WoF
« on: February 17, 2016, 10:54:19 AM »
During a conversation regarding a variant with the old Abbot system used in the German/Belgian/Dutch Monasteries expansions, someone mentioned that they would always score points from the WoF because of an Abbot placement.

When the Monk section is in play, would the Abbots count as monks? In one way, I would assume not since they aren't exactly monks and stay in that position on the board for the entire game.

For clarification, I'm talking about the old style rules only since Abbots in Carc 2 are removed either before or when you have completed a cloister, but in Carc 1 stay on the piece for the rest of the game (with a choice made on tile placement to decide if it will become a monk or abbot)

The Marketplace / WTB Purple & Grey Abbots
« on: February 14, 2016, 02:00:07 AM »
This may sound like an odd request but does anyone know where I can get hold of Abbots in purple and grey?

I've already managed to purchase an orange Abbot (which came with a full meeple set from Cundco) and the standard 5 (without needing to buy Carc 2!) but can't find these two anywhere.

Any suggestions?

General / Forum Time Zone
« on: January 27, 2016, 02:09:08 PM »
I've always wondered why the forum states that I've posted at random times. Then I got thinking about what time zone this forum is based on. My closest guess is Vancouver,  since it is nearly 2:10pm and this post is very close to that time.

Am I correct or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

What are the various forum stats (based on posts) and ranks people can have? I've always been curious...

The Marketplace / Abbot Pieces
« on: December 20, 2015, 06:45:24 AM »
Hello all!

My wife and I love playing Carcassonne and quite like the look of new Carcassonne abbot pieces.

In order for us to get these abbot pieces (not to be confused with the abbots that meeples can become from the German & Belgian/Dutch Monasteries expansions), we would have to not only spend more money on a game that we already own (we have every expansion available), but we would have to do so twice (since we have 8 full sets of meeples, including all of the special ones).

We therefore refuse to buy these newer expansions solely for gaining a few wooden pieces and to have some sets of tiles which don't really work well with the older ones (opinions may differ)!

As such, I was wondering if any of you know where I can get my hands on some abbot pieces? Before any of you say 'Go to Cundco', it seems that they don't offer the spare parts service anymore since their website overhaul (some rarer, mini expansions are also no longer in print, which is sad news for the collector). Also, if any of you say 'Buy the new expansions', you clearly haven't followed my trail of thought and the entire purpose of this post!

Any guesses where we could get these then?

General / Which Carcassonne tile is the best?
« on: August 18, 2015, 09:58:27 AM »
In your opinion (I stress this word as many of you will differ, hopefully not resulting in arguments!), which tile do you think is probably one of the best? This could be one that always scores big points, is the best 'space filler', is one that you always love having or is the best for some other reason(s).

For me , it would have to be the Halfling monastery as this can be used in so many places to not only open up fields, but also to score an easy 9 points without anyone really predicting your move!

Even though you may be able to play with them both and practically they can work together, the point I am trying to find out here is that whether or not you feel they look and play well together (especially with the new game designs).

Vote away (within 14 days time of course)!
