Products with the new tile design
« on: December 06, 2021, 11:30:58 PM »
Hello! I'm planning on buying the 20th Anniversary edition as my first box, so I'm looking over the tile designs. If I understand it correctly, there is a new tile design since the end of 2020 (more rounder corners, busier cities). I know a new Big Box is coming with the same tile design. I read that a lot of people don't like the new design, but since my 1st box will have it (and I kind of like the looks of it so far) I wanted to start collecting other boxes and expansions with this design in the future.

My question is, are there other boxes, expansion or mini-expansions with the same tile design at this time, if so, which exactly? Thank you!

One thing. Yesterday I was checking the German cathedral tiles in C2 and I noticed their corners ar also rounder... Actually I just checked and both C2 German Cathedrals and C2 Halflings have the same rounder corners as Peasant Revolts... I checked the credits and Marcel Gröber (the clipped city guy) is credited on the Halflings rules along with Anne Pätzke. Halflings shows a mix of clean edges and clipped city edges. Back in the day I attributed that to the smaller city caps where buildings couldn't fit cleanly.

It seems HiG introduced the new C2.2/C3.0 tile shapes and artwork style with C2 Halflings and C2 Cathedrals in Germany in 2020 but nobody noticed. The former combines both styles serving as a transition and the latter has no cities on them. :o

Any comments? Do you agree?

No no no, the "rounder corners" as you call it are not a discrete trait introduced at any point - roundness/sharpness of corners always was continuous and fluctuated over the years.

There always was edges changes ofer the yers due to manufacturer discrepancies.

Those were slightly noticeable.

But since the end of 2020, edges are a lot rounder, too much for a simple manufacturing change, this can only be an intentional change in the tiles's shape.

Here you are an example: Regular base game on the left, 20th Anniversary Edition base game on the right...

Check that the city wall looks smother at the intersection with the rounder corner. No city-city corner getting in the way.

And something else Decar noticed on Discord...  :o

Yep. They are mirrored on the CCFF tile with coat of arms. All the other tiles are okay. I also checked all C2.2/3.0 expansions.
