I'd give it a good home.  Please add my name to the hat: Ker42.

General / Vision of the Future?
« on: September 10, 2023, 06:19:38 AM »
Hi, all!  I just had an incredible dream.  I was pulling out tiles to start a game of Carcassonne, and one of the tiles "TURNED ON!"  It was a double-tile, and it had a little switch on the top edge like an iPad.  When clicked on, it actually displayed images of how to play the tile!  Unfortunately, I woke up before seeing what the full artwork or mechanics entailed, but it got me wondering.  What will Carcassonne of the future look like?  If we or machines don't wipe ourselves out, what amazing technology might exist a hundred years from now?  Carc tiles with moving artwork (an actual flowing river or tiny people bustling about in a busy city)?  A connected device could play audio: when you play a dragon tile, it roars.  And tiny tile sensors could track the dragon token's movement and make chomping sounds when it eats your meeple.  Or will everything be holographic like Star Wars chess?  Or better yet, imagine a Star Trek type holo-deck experience where you interact with visuals from the game (although I'm not sure I'd want to interact with a life-size dragon)! 

If anyone has a time machine, kindly pop into the future, check it out, and come back and tell us what Carcassonne of the future looks like.  I'm curious.  Anyone else?

Interesting assortment of tiles, Kothmann!  Did you use your tower and wind rose variants too?  I'm a big fan of Cosmic Orienteers.  Haven't tried Hatteras Captains yet though...

We played a game today using the large coaster tiles found here: along with large phantoms and mini meeples (given for filling a hole without an abbey).  It was a great game, despite playing on an uneven picnic table and the wind almost blowing away the tiles and moving the meeples!

Great picture, oldbonz!  But why is he scaling the wall...??   :)

 :o  Fingers crossed.   

My daughters have played regular Carcassonne; in fact they give me a pretty good run for my money...when I can get them off their electronic devices.   ;)
Hoping this version with their favorite colors will make them want to play more.

Kudos to your travel-sized game!  And to your graduating son, the secondary reason for being there.   ;D

Yes they did.  Hey, if it finally gets my daughters to play Carcassonne with me...  ;D

Does anyone have any idea how much longer it is going to take before this special edition is coming out? thank you  ;D
Hi, matteo.kindt and welcome to the forum!  It's funny you mentioned this today.  I too was interested in this special edition so ended up making my own.
I just finished printing and gave it the first playtest last night.  It was a lot of fun (even though I lost), and I thought it looked great on the table.  I took pictures, but the lighting didn't do it justice.  If you or anyone else are interested in this I can add it to the downloads.  Cheers!

Yeah.  What's the cost and how soon do you need it?

Hey, smaller packages have the meeple tape too!  Happy to get my clear ghosts and meeple sets!  ;D

Any more UK/European takers on C2 Monasteries?  Right now the order stands at 2 (from Willem).
