So it looks like we're getting (assuming this is also the German and US components) Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, and the 7 Carcassonne minis + The River and The Abbot = 11 expansions, as advertised. Meh. I do like the new art for the mini boxes, though. Those look kind of interesting.

Base Game + 11 Expansions @ 51 Euro is actually not bad at all and its a nice setup for people new to CARC, will definitely be advising alot of my friends to get the big box, i just hope that the minis will be made availible seperately in September as well so that I am not forced to buy bigbox just to get my hands on them..... not very patient. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm hoping that it gets released in the USA this year. This would be perfect for me. My mom wants Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders. I want the 7 Minis. My friend is thinking about getting the Base game.

I would get the Big box for myself and give my current copies of I&C and T&B to my mom. She would not mind having second hand from me. I keep everything in excellent condition.

As for the Base, I could sell it used to my friend or keep it as a second Base for longer games.

Thanks for the link Vasek. Not unsurprising to see what's been included, but still seems like a good value set and hopefully one that will help many new players discover the game for the first time.

Interested to know more about the "Carcassonne for 2" as well. Sounds like maybe an extended version of the Carc 2 demo version that was released previously (albeit in a limited way).

I agree that it is not what I was hoping for, but as least I can make this work for me. I've always tried to organize all my expansions into the main box, but am running out of room. So a big box will be nice for me in that respect also. Hopefully the big box comes with a bigger bag for tiles.
I have everything in tuck boxes. Even made score cube tuck boxes for each color player pieces (0[lid],50,100,150,200,250).

What is the 7th mini (with a feather watermark on it)?

The box dimensions are almost the same as the big box. But there are only 48 tiles....perhaps the tiles are enormous!

It's a shame it looks like they still don't include a cloth bag when it includes Traders & Builders!

I'm at the point where despite being in the old edition camp, I *may* buy into the new, though only when they create a Big Box with more new expansions (such as Under the Big Top). That way I can justify it to my Wife  ;D
