999 Games have made a page on their website regarding the differences between the old art and new art game. It explains what expansions have been produced in the new artwork, and what it means if you want to combine it with the old artwork (like the 6the player colour switch from grey to pink).
Later on they mention the other big expansions that havent been released in the new artwork, Castles, Bridges&Bazaars, The Catapult and Hills and Sheep.
They state that all of these are in development, and shall be released later this year.
Does this mean HiG will remake The Catapult?

General / Square on Tunnels
« on: June 06, 2017, 12:17:33 PM »
Hey guys!

After I made my trade with Caciej regarding the Tunnels, we found out that the copy I sent him had a weird square 'imprint' on the tiles. It varies per tile, but is definitely there.
I've checked my copy that I play with, and it has the same (see picture)
Has anyone else seen this? Is it a know thing of the Tunnels?
I've checked the other Spielbox expansions, but they don't seem to have this.

The Marketplace / WTB/WTT Windroses 2012 edition
« on: June 03, 2017, 07:04:05 AM »
Hi everyone!
With some new things ive been able to get, my Classic Carcassonne Collection is almost complete.
The second set of Russian Promo's isn't available anywhere as far as I know, so I'm not really counting that, so that leaves just 1 expansion that i do not have as of yet.
This is the WindRoses 2012 HiG edition (with N,E,S,W on them).
I've emailed everyone on BGG that has the Windroses for sale, but everyone has the Spielbox edition.
So, does anyone know where to get this expansion, or does anyone have one that they are willing to part with?
I've got a few small extra's I could trade for it, and am willing to buy it of course:
The count of Carcassonne (12 tiles+meeple)
Windroses (2013 Spielbox edition)
Labyrinth (both tiles)
And I might be able to have a Spiel 2016 tile available for trade as well

If anyone can help me, please let me know!
Thanks!   (so the one of the left)

Anything Else / Interesting souvenir from Russia
« on: April 21, 2017, 11:53:49 AM »
Today i was at my girlfriends parents and i saw something interesting.
Its a stone souvenir of the hut of Baba Yaga. They said they got it from a friend from Russia, and had no idea of the carcassonne tile that has it. So i showed them a picture and they agreed that it was a nice coincidence.
The roof is a lose bit and the right thingy is actually a little spoon. So it can be used as a sugarpot or something like that.
I thought its a nice little thing that I wanted to share here.

Reviews & Session Reports / 2-player MegaCarcassonne
« on: March 22, 2017, 04:56:15 AM »
Me and my girlfriend decided to sacrifice our dining table for a MegaCarcassonne! We figured we could start and stop whenever we wanted, and just resume the next day, and that is what we did. We started Friday afternoon, and finished Wednesday morning. I can't say how many hours went in to it, since we went out and had friends over, had to work and of course sleep. So we probably spent a lot of time in it :P

It was Base game, Winter edition base game, Inns&Cathedrals, Traders&Builders, Princess&Dragon, Tower, Abbey&Mayor, Count, King&Robber, Catapult (tiles only), Wheel of Fortune, Bridges, Castles &Bazaars, Hills&Sheep, River (1,2 and BB5) Count, GQ11, Cult, Siege &Creativity, Crop Circles 2, Festival, Phantom, School, Flying Machines, Messengers, Ferries, Goldmines, Mage&Witch, Windroses (2 sets), Watchtowers, Cult (3 versions), Tunnel, Little Buildings, Halflings 1&2 (got 4 halflings each), Labyrinth (both versions), German Monastaries, German Castles (2 castles each), German Cathedrals, Gingerbread Man, Winter Crop Circles, Darmstadt, Spiel 14,15,16.
Came out to almost 540 tiles in total (including the WoF starting tile & Count starting tile).
We used the scoretrack of the winter edition for our messengermeeples, so it was easier to see what was going on.

We used the lid from the BB5 to have all the tiles, with 2 teatowels as a cover, since the tiles didnt fit in our bag anymore. After we got through most of the tiles we put the rest in the bag and continued with the bag as normal.
We didn't use the Japanese Buildings and Dutch monastaries, because we have a house rule using the abbot meeples for the monastaries, so they're not too powerfull as everyone has just one to use. And with the normal cloisters and a lot of expansions having cloisters we figured there were enough of those in the game. Also didnt use the Robbers because we dont really like those in a 2 player game. Same with the Besiegers and Plague, so they were left out as well. Basicly everything else was in there!

At some point we were running out of meeples, so I tried to use the cat to claim a city. But it turned out she didnt want to stay there for long as she walked away soon.

We had mostly a nice game where we mostly went our own way. I stole a city from her and she came back with stealing a city from me, that had a cathedral, Mage and Gingerbread man, leading her to score over 50 points for the little city. And at the same time she trapped one of my meeples in a nearby city I tried to link up. But with her Halfling she made sure I wouldnt do that.
She did that again when i was building a nice big city, and trapped another meeple there with one of her Halflings. I made her remove some of her farmers as a comeback.
She ended up capturing one of my farmers and stealing that farm at the end though.

I trapped a meeple of hers in a German Cathedral and we were coming to the end!
Right at the end I was able to secure the last 2 pieces of gold, bringing my gold stash to 10! So I got a nice 40 points extra at the end, that I was very happy with!

We ran out of score tiles at the end, even after I got a couple from the Star Wars Carcassonne. So we used a piece of paper to write down how many 50's we had extra.
She had a very good barn down with 14 city's in, so I was hoping my farmers good make up for that!
The abbots were close, hers got 52 points, mine 56.

And that was it! I was tasked with cleaning up, since she went to work, so I spend about an hour sorting through everything.
In the end:
Pink: 1424 points
Blue: 1510 points
I was ahead most of the game, and managed to take the win!
In a previous big game she beat me by over 250 points, so I was happy to win this! Even though at the end we were also happy that we got through it :P

Now we will probably not play Carcassonne for at least 2 days  ::)

Reviews & Session Reports / Big River game
« on: February 25, 2017, 08:16:25 AM »
Me and my girlfriend decided to play a mdium sized game today. It took us around 2 hours, so not too bad :)
We decided to start of using all 3 rivers. We started with the springs back to back, and shuffled all the other river tiles together. Once they were used, we ended all the rivers with the lakes.
We used a nice mix of mostly positive expansions:
Base game
Halflings 1 and Halflings 2 (we had 4 halflings each drawn from all of them shuffled together)
The Tunnels
Japanese Buildings
Cult, Siege & Creativity (without the 2 blank tiles)
The Labyrinths (both versions)
The Flying Machines
German Klöster
River 1, River 2 and River 3 (BB5 version)

It was a fun game that was a close end! We ended up with only 6 points between us! (she won though)
There was a bit of a discussion at the end, as my farm with 10 cities and a pig also had the pigherd tile from the River 2. So we discussed if we would use that as a pig (and took the GQ11 tile in concideration as well), and if we would allow pig stacking. We used it as a pigherd before, so decided it is a pigherd us, but pigstacking was not allowed. So if we did allow it, I would have won by 4 points....
We had some good fun, since most of the expansions were nice ones. The only nasty one is the Siege, and I did get yelled at for using it on her big city :P
The fliers were not used that much really, since at the point we got these tiles neither of us had big things going on, except for a nice road she joined in on. (and I got yelled at for trying to join in on her big Labyrinth with lake and all  ;) )
We are still planning on doing a 'nasty' game, with only 'nasty' expansions like the Tower, Plague, Dragon&Princess, Robbers, Corn Circles, Siege etc, so when we finally get to do that I'll put out a game report for that :)

The Marketplace / Tip for buying Carcassonne Minis
« on: January 22, 2017, 08:34:53 AM »
If anyone is looking for a full set of the 6 mini-expansions from 2012, including the 7th (Crop Circles 2), there's one full set on ebay for a reasonable price (considering some prices i found when looking, up to £28 for 1 expansion.
It's a Dutch seller, and he has 1 set left. I have bought one a few days ago, so I'm waiting for the delivery myself as well.

Good luck!
