This arrived last week, an All In Pledge for Final Girl from Van Ryder Games.

If you read all the posts here, you'll know that I reviewed Hostage Negotiator on here. This is of a similar vein except uses slasher movie and horror tropes.

I played my first game on Friday, and got mullered, but think I'll be prepared for the next game. It's pretty funny watching your best laid plans fall apart due to one or two bad dice rolls, but that's the fun of the game. Working out when and how to mitigate failures.

Maybe they meant "coming to a close"

Z-man are objectively useless.
As the exclusive distributor to USA, UK, and Aus, they hold the license to print money, when it suits them.

To answer your question, Z-Man manages their marketing, it's highly unlikely someone will have more information than they choose to post on their official website. And if they did they'd not be allowed to share anything.

The anniversary edition is not a Substitute for the base game. So the same statement applies here: We won't give you official rules for combinations of expansions. (4/14/2021)

So Carcassonne 20 is actually v3, because it can't be used with any other expansions.

Making v3 v3.1.

Perhaps they have also refreshed the rules to include all of Meepledrone's corrections.....  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Welcome to the forum Challa007!  I look forward to hearing about your expansion that you're working on.

I mainly play with Carc 2 now.

Big Box 2021 is of the 20th Anniversary product line, it includes the same stylized Carcassonne font.

Exactly, if it wasn't for the point scoring it would have been great.
I once played a game of go with 5s per turn, which was pretty amazing, the scoring is much easier though, as it only happens at the end of the game.  Nightmare when you capture a few stones though!

I once played a 2 player game where we gave each other 10s a turn. It was havoc! And also fun  ;D

The Carcassonne World Championships (which are 2 player games, use the following rules):

In all games chess-clocks will be used. Each player may take up to 15 minutes for his own game - if he uses up all his time, then the player loses.
The player activates the other player’s clock as soon as he finishes his move - this means AFTER he calculated the points (own and from the opponent).

This is for a base game with no expansions. So they're suggesting 30 minutes total for 72 tiles.  So about 25s per tile.
I'd recommend making that 30-35s per tile for family games.

As for expansions, calculating scores can get convoluted, so maybe that needs to be increased.

Sorry PapaGeek, not much we can do about this one.

It looks like their drop box account has been removed.  You could try DMing CarcinFool?
