The discussed rules are from me and contain a malus-/bonus-scoring.

You have to count the connected cities to the city with the fair tile. Therefore only cities connected through road networks count,  no cities connected only through other cities or cloisters.

When the fair-city is completed (or the same at final scoring) and there are
no cities connected: you have to go back 3 points
1 city connected: you have to go back 1 point
2 cities connected: don't got back or forward
3 cities connected: you have to go forward 1 point
4 cities connected: you have to go forward 3 point
5 cities connected: you have to go forward 6 point
6 cities connected: you have to go forward 9 point (for every futher city 3 ponts forward)
on the scoreboard.

This is extra to the regular scoring for the player(s) who get(s) the regular points

Does anyone have a copy of the Spiel 2014 Promo tile they are willing to sell? I would not mind one for completeness.
If you do, could you PM me.

Pretty much everyone on ebay.de by the looks of it! It seems unfair to me to sell a free gift souvenir from HiG but at least the prices are low while there are so many for sale...

Unfortunately, I'm not finding any sellers on ebay.de that will ship to the US.   :(

Yes you can post it here if you only use graphic from Carcassonne games. In my opinion the city-ground is too dark, the light walls and blue roofs are not so bad.

That was what I was finding.  I need someone in Germany to buy me a copy.  The question is what are they going to sell for as they all seem to be auctions and not plain sales.

I've bought a fair bit of Carcassonne stuff from ebay.de in the past (but nothing since January this year). Even if the listing says they won't post it outside of Germany, if you contact the seller they'll often make an allowance for an extra couple of Euros.

With regard to timing, I would look to buy sooner rather than later as prices will go much higher when there are fewer available...

I just ordered the besieger and halfing expansion from cundco and i asked them if they would make an exeption and include a spiel 2014 tile. This was the answer i received.

"thanks for your order. We're really sorry but the promo tile was exclusively for the Spiel 2014 and will not be sold (or give away) sepatately.
BUT, we'll include it in future special actions,maybe for Saint Nicolas, so keep your eyes open. ;-)"

So it seems we'll be able to get it on a later date afterall.

(P.s: Dutch and German Saint nicolas is on the fifth/sixth of december. It's like santa claus without the christmas, obesity and radio-active reindeer)
Dddddeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrppp

Well that's what they emailed me. Maybe they realise they have a dutch fanbase or its a regional thing
