Has anyone played already? What impression do you have? I have already played several games and I have to say that it is the spin off of the series around the world that I like the most.  :D

We have played a couple of games with this new spin off, and we like it very much!
We are still getting used to the idea of the tokens, to balance between getting them and using them, but we like it :)
It might be up there with South Seas and Amazonas for us, which are our favourites :)

For me better than South seas and amazonas. Goldrush it's great too!

I hope they release this in English soon but going by Z-Man track record it could be a while :(.

Yesterday I finally decided to get me a copy of Safari from the local store. Better late than never.

Yeah, I mean mechanistically speaking it is a very interesting version of Carcassonne to explore, even if the thematic implementation of said mechanics is a bit rough. It is however unfortunate that Safari is easily one of the top 2 ugliest looking versions. Is there anybody who actually likes the art on this thing? ??? (I hope at least someone does). It doesn't bother me that much though - gameplay is good.

I'm guilty. I like the art of Carcassonne safari and the mechanism.

Not guilty! Im glad that someone likes the art as well as mechanics, because everybody I know, who played it (myself included) dislikes the art.

I think it looks better than Discovery, Castle, and City.  That being said it doesn't hold a candle to Amazonas or South Seas.  The watering hole bit always seemed silly looking, especially when unfinished.
