Count expansion can not be used. Because. At end of turn those meeples are removed from game and are in players' supplies.
It can be used also C1 expansions which not has equivalent in C2.

Just as Guy wrote, using plague it is possible to stuff all the meeples on a single tile, or at least almost all.
Especially useful for moving a builder, pig or shepherd.
Abbots would be a special case, as they need to be placed on the same garden or monastery using flyiers.
Count expansion can also be helpful for sending meeples into features.
Tile from the goldmines: CRRC+monastery, would also accommodate mage and witch at the same time + fairy.
So for 6 players C1+C2 game, that would be 99 meeples on a single tile.
Using big box 5 with 2 extra sets of (some) meeples would decreese the number, as all players need to have same sets of meeples, so that would exclude ringmasters, phantoms, mayors and wagons, for 91 total.

But as the first post states, only new edition, so the highest meeple count at a single tile would be 75 using count expansion for initial filling the tile (including large, mayor, wagon, ringmaster), flyer to place abbots, crop circles for all remaining meeples that were not added by city of carcassonne mechanic, and mage+witch+fairy for a good measure at the end.

What is really easy to manage is to place Slávoy Razboynil tile and enlarge his road and trap all meeples on Slavoy's tree.
This can trap all meeples of players include
6x7 regular meeple, 6x1 large meeple,6x1 wagon, 6x1 ringmaster.

So it is 60 meeples on one tile.

What will be next step?

If you play with the plague then any suitably large and shared feature could share a single tile as they flee from the plague. This in theory could mean all the meeple in play could share a single tile.
Yeah this is also option
Finally one of the best answers.
It's more difficult to manage it but possible, maybe. Depends if it will be possible to manage.

Exactly, a big shared farm (easiest to do if playing with bridges) with all meeples could do the trick  :neutral-meeple:

Ugh.  Not at all my intention to be a self-proclaimed oracle.  And I certainly hope my pedantic style doesn't discourage anyone from voting and replying.  :-[

No, not at all. It's interesting to hear your point of view as you set up the situation.
I may not reply much, but certainly find it fun and interesting to vote and read the comment section.

Keep it going kothmann.

+1 Merit for you  ;D

...the big reveal from the author...

I haven't played many actual games.  Mostly just head-scratching at the coffee table.   :-\

So, I've enjoyed and learned a lot from the comments and votes so far.   :)

The comments have also given me interesting ideas to explore in future weeks...  :o

Let's keep going!  ;D

:(y) = confirmed
:blue-meeple: = paid SWAN PANASIA cost
:green-meeple: = paid Import Taxes + shipping to destination country
xxxxx (xN) = suggested forum member receiving order and relaying items to other interested parties

People in Europe, please confirm you participation in the order. And review if you agree with the distribution scheme. In those countries with several members, I picked those with the largest order as entry point. Belgium is not decided.

Besides this, I would like split the payments into two parts. One covering the Swan Panasiacosts (known cost) and a second one covering import Taxes (estimates for now) in the EU and shipping to the entry point in each country (unknown yet). Paypal works for me. Once I collect the initial amount, I will pay the order.

The second payment would cover Taxes and Shipping to each country, but I will only know the exact amounts once I drop each sub-order in the mail.

But first we need to confirm the order for Europe to we can place the final order. Swan Panasia sent me a link to pay the order for 30 maps but as you can see, the order will change depending on your final decisions.

Please be quick in making your decision over the weekend. Thank you so much in advance.

Note: I include the estimation again, just in case.

EDIT: Updated Slovakia
EDIT: Added MetalGearHorus / Horus to USA East Coast

Guess 8 could join the single tile party if flyers expansion added?
When used just Basic Game & & Flying machine, then it could be oven more.
Imagine, that there are 8 flying machine tiles, so 8 meeples can be placed by this mechanizm. But you can also place first meeple on tile by tile placement. So it will be 9.

So here is some summary:
1. Regular placement of meeple when placed tile
- 1 meeple
2. When playing flying machine, ability to place there another 8 meeples by Fly machine
- 9 meeples
3. Phantom when placed tile
- 10 meeples

What alse? (there can be even more!)
