Preordered Big Box 2017 at the local store. 65 Euro. Under the Big Top will also be available in a different local store for 13 Euro.

Now only thing missing is new edition of Count King Robber. That is still coming / has been released?
World record holder for a single game of Carcassonne using 10 007 tiles!

I noticed the big box 2017 has the 999 Games logo. They are in league with Z-man Games or a sub-company to them?

They're the Dutch Carcassonne publisher.

Update on the Swedish front: The English version will be released on October here. That's a long wait, kinda eager to get my hands on it start punching out tiles.

Did anyone else notice on the website that this game apparently only takes 35 minutes to complete?
If only I had another Halfling.....

That's because everything is optional.

That's nothing. One of the games played last year each turn took about 10-15 seconds.  >:D

I'd say it's comparable. 172 landscape tiles played in 35 minutes = 12.2 seconds per tile. Doesn't include end game scoring. So it's definitely something.

Havent been able to find any dutch (web)shops that have it for pre order yet. The only UK one i found is https://www.chaoscards.co.uk/board-games-c800/all-board-games-c550/z-man-games-carcassonne-big-box-2017-p151442
Price of about £70, which is quit expensive i think.
At bonifatius its much cheaper for the German version https://www.bonifatius-buchhandlung.de/produkt-1996/carcassonne_big_box_2017_spiel/9837949.
And the english version seems to come out about a month after the dutch/german version. And maybe more expensive...
