You only see that face for three reasons:

1. A child gets an amazing present.
2. A woman gets a present or 'rare' bunch of flowers.
3. A man gets a new toy, such as some power tool or board game!

This is an update to a previous post:

According to CoolStuffInc.com:

Carcassonne: Big Box 6 (2017)
Estimated USA Release Date: October 2017. Date subject to change.

Available for pre-order now at:
https://www.miniaturemarket.com/zmgzm7856.html
Listed for pre-order, but not actually available at:
http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/245660

Current Prices Breakdown as of 7/29/2017 in the USA
Game Part/PriceRetailCoolStuffInc.comMiniatureMarket.com
Carcassonne$34.99$29.79$27.99
Inns & Cathedrals$17.99$15.29$14.39
Traders & Builders$17.99$15.29$14.39
Base + I&C + T&B$70.97$60.37$56.77
Big Box 6 (2017)$80.00$67.99$63.99
Extra Cost (6 Minis)$9.03$7.62$7.22

Both CoolStuffInc.com & MiniatureMarket.com have a $6.00 Ground Shipping & Handling in the USA for 48 States (NOT Hawaii & Alaska) for orders under $100.

This places the extra cost for the Minis to be under $10 which is worth it to me.

Also, the Tower is available for pre-order $15.99 on MiniatureMarket.com (Regular 19.99). I will be ordering both of these together later this month.

Unfortunately, I didn't bring it back with me - no way it would fit in the suitcase.  Plus Spiele Offensive is much cheaper....if I don't make it to Essen this year  :'(

We had our first play with it today! Everything as expected, but we did notice that the watermark is easier to miss when sorting out the tiles.
That will be some getting used to.
I like that in the rules (at least the dutch ones), theyve listed the (expected) time added to the game with every expansion

This is interesting:



Translation:

Many tiles have a small illustration. The letters in brackets show you which ones are on the tiles. They stand for:

G | garden
W | highwayman
B | farmhouse
S | pigsty
K | cow shed
E | donkey stable
T | water tower


The fact that they made a point to call all of these out (both here and in the base game tile list on the HiG website) adds fuel to this feeling I've had that they are planning to eventually make these illustrations relevant for gameplay. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Market of Leipzig tiles are going to have some kind of tie-in with printed farmhouses, yes?

Interesting they call out the Pig/Donkey/Cow sheds separately too.  The buildings look awfully similar to each other!

Z-Man Games now lists Big Box 6 as "Shipping Now". Also the reprint of Inns & Cathedrals is "shipping now".  A few people have been looking for Expansion 1, and now it's back in stock.

The rules for Big Box 6 are up as well.

Thanks flipshot.  At least in the Z-man rules Farmers are labelled as an Expansion.  It also says: "In your second game, you should add the farmers."  and "After your first game, we recommend playing with farmers."  I wonder how that compares to the German edition.

I'm not sure I've got the energy to look for any subtle rule or tile changes either!

I have to say looking at the tile distribution pages, Anne Patzke has made some wonderful tiles.  I particularly like the Ferries.

Also it says: "D One of these is the starting tile (with a dark back), identified with a S".  Does the Start tile have an 'S' on it?

The dutch version is the same with the farmer suggestions.
And the mentioning of the starting tile, but no S to be found on it.
And i didnt find any rule changes in the dutch rule book.
I do like that theyve added the expected extra time the expansions take (in both dutch and english versions). Not sure how accurate they are, as they state that the abbots take 0extra minutes in a game....


Edit; i found something i havent seen before. The rfrr tile with an inn from I&C is stated as having the inn for both the left and right road, whereas in the old edition it is stated to only be for the road on the right. I dont know if this was the same in the standalone expansion in the new artwork, but it stood out to me

The S could be referred to the S on the tile count sheet in the rules.

The base games I have has this S on the tile if I remember correctly, in the tile count sheet.

Update: Yes. D at the start of that sentence is referring to the tile D where you can see the S. Basically the same as the old art rules.
  Question is, did they put an actual S on the tile this time. I hope not!
