I have waited too long for more abbot's
« on: March 13, 2018, 07:21:01 AM »
So I have a plan but I need help. If I buy another big box of the new art, I get 180 tiles I don't need but some abbot's that I can paint. Cost me about £48 including shipping.
I sell base game tiles plus meeples for £15
Each major expansion including associated wood for £5
Each mini expansion £2.50
River £2.5
50/100 tiles £1.5
Score board £1.5

I would break even. (in reality I likely get left with messages! But I can live with that)

Anyone interested in helping Halfling with my 2018 hare-brained idea?

Why not just fork over a couple euros for replacement abbots from cundco?
If you go to the left - you'll find death.
If you go to the right - you'll lose your horse.
If you go straight - you'll live, but will forget who you are.

.30 cents each if they have in grey white purple and unpainted.
I don't help others expand their carcassonne collections - lots of you likely to be without the mini expansions?

I don't get to correspond with new contacts

I would be interested in helping you with this, if there are no others that want the mini's. I already have this big box, but wouldn't mind to double up.
If there are others that don't have them yet and want them, please let them have it first of course!
And boardgameextras also have the abbots for 80p each, in all colours, but i guess that this would have the same consequenses as to order them from cundco :P

And again, as i don't fall in the mentioned categories of players without the mini's or new contacts, i would of course want those to go first ;)
Just think of me as a back up :P

I'd like to buy all 7 minis in new art (with meeples).
And also 2 major expansions including associated wood  :)
If shipment costs to Russia is not too terrible.

How can one order replacement abbots? Contact them directly? I do not see abbot meeples in stock. I would like red and blue to add to Carcassonne for 2.

I assume it is the white meeple with a question mark and you fill in the relevant drop down options?

Just go here: https://cundco.de/en/spare-parts/11/holz/plastikteile

Under "Exact specification **" enter:

Red Abbot x 1
Blue Abbot x 1

Please note this comment:

"The abbot is generally not available as a spare part! Single, lost abbots can be replaced, but not complete sets!"

Guess that this idea didn't fly. Oh well. Thinking cap on for the next wacky scheme.
