It's an incorrectly-placed shepherd.
I suspect it's actually a proxy for the new types meeple.

This is an interesting thing to do with Carcassonne again. The game already has the Wheel of Fortune, which did the same thing. I still wonder why it hasn't been re-released in the new art. This seems like another attempt at the same thing, but with a ghost theme rather than a fate theme (though both have a mystical air about them). I am a little surprised at the low tile count. 60 tiles is not that many, especially since the base game now comes with 84 tiles and the 20th anniversary edition came with 104 plus a new double start tile. The premise of a co-operative mode, ghosts, a new multi-tile feature, and multiple levels of difficulty are all interesting and I am excited to see where they go in the context of an expansion.

In related news, Hans im Glueck also has fully embraced the Carcassonne 3.0 name: https://www.hans-im-glueck.de/news/Carcassonneversion3.html. Check also the list of Carcassonne products, which shows "7. Das Katapult (nicht mehr erhältlich)". I believe this is the first official acknowledgement that The Catapult is not going to be produced. No mention of Wheel of Fortune or a few early spin-offs.

It could indeed very well be a placeholder for a meeple with a lantern. On the box art, we see someone with a lantern, which could work with the fog...

We'll have to wait and find out :)

In terms of the C2 Catapult; it was previously confirmed here that we would not be seeing it.
I also seem to remember seeing it listed like that on their website, but not sure

Looking forward to this new game/expansion.  I would imagine it will be mid-2023 before ZMan produces it here in US.

Regarding Catapult, has anyone made it as a fan expansion in C2?  Has anyone come up with a better rules set for this expansion?

I haven't checked if anyone tried to convert the Catapult tiles to C2... But in any case, here you are a collection of variants you may find interesting:

Not yet, and I’m not aware of anyone intending to either. I was looking at the tiles yesterday and comparing them to existing C2 tiles, but there isn’t much help to be found there. Someone will need to source the catapult and jugglers from somewhere, or draw them by hand.

Note that converting official expansions is highly regulated. Our German friends at Carcassonne-Forum currently have exclusive permission to do such things, and there is an approval process that they must go through. Since HiG has formally stated that Catapult will not be converted to C2, they are very likely to allow Carcassonne-Forum to do this as one of their 4 allowed conversions per year. They are currently behind schedule, so they have a few years worth of allowances collected.

Before anyone expresses dissatisfaction that Carcassonne-Forum has permission and we don’t, I would like to point out that each of us may become members of Carcassonne-Forum and may therefore participate in this under their established process. Translation tools like DeepL (and the associated Chrome extension) have helped to lower the language barrier.

Interesting.. not a fan of cooperative elements that I've played so far but of-course I'll be picking this up.

Now do I pick up the anniversary edition as well to match with this when its used as an expansion along with getting the anniversary expansion. Also facing that dilemma with the old art to pick up the old art expansions that don't have a C2 version.

We'll have to see what the final version will be like.

I think we will still need a few months to see the final version.

Anyone feeling impatient? >:D

Today the game has seen its first demo/test, courtesy of Giochi Uniti in Italy, at a local convention.

First images were shared on Instagram (thanks MMike for the link!)

The initial version that HiG presented with the rubber ghosts, in my opinion, was more original and beautiful than this last one in wood.

Considering those are laser-cut meeples in the photos above, I think there's still a good chance of transparent ghost meeples in the final product.
