I've had it a few years. It current houses some non-Carcasonne things. I probably ordered it from Cundco a few months after the new artwork was available.

Is this a foreshadowing about the Besiegers being re-released in C2? Or a Spiel Tile bundle with 8 tiles available in 2021?  ;)

I think it's either foreshadowing a mini Carcassonne that Meeple can play.

Or it foreshadowed the mega meeple released a few weeks ago.

We’re missing the even more obvious expansion foreshadowing, ladies and gents... bear with me here, I think I have it... new Mini-Expansion: Shopping Spree.

Includes a mini shopping cart for you to store your tiles, compatible with the house rules of drawing three tiles at the start of the game with one following each turn thereafter— a new and exciting way to store your three tiles between turns. Also includes eight new tiles featuring a shopping mall, a tile that completes a road feature and immediately scores the player placing it two points per completed city within the the fields (similar to scoring a farmer.)

Also compatible with Catapult expansion... a given player may choose to launch their shopping cart (with the catapult) in lieu of drawing a tile. It doesn’t add any gameplay or score points or anything like that, but it mimics the real-world phenomenon of shopping carts crashing or running amok, bringing either irritation or laughs to the other shoppers.

My 2018 English version of The Tower does not have it either.

I did notice that the Polish version of The Castle has a game of "Tic-tac-toe" engraved next to the gate entrance.

I have the same version of the C2 Tower box, but I have never noticed before this cute Ad of the Cundco shop!
Saw this for the first time today and wondered if anyone else has noticed:



The new artwork Tower has a shopping cart with tiles in it.

One tile is a Besiegers tile in the old art work. And a Spiel 14 tile, that was only limited for short time!

Anyone else notice any oddities like this?
