First thing I'll do when I become emperor of the Universe is to ban everyone from calling "River 3" the river from the BB5. It's a slightly modified River I FFS, no need to give it a separate numeration! :))

It's River III  >:(

I can think of at least one Carcassonne related book that's available on Amazon that would have been a much better investment!

He's also the new Carcassonne central community champion. Congratulations to him and to every players! it was fun !

It's also worth adding that he previously won the World Cup of Carcassonne Central in 2016 after a 5 hour battle in the final game! Congrats @Leven ! :violet-meeple: :(y)

(i was not even on the 16, @danisthirty kick me out too soon!   :P )

I had a very lucky game! :o


Thanks for organising this Linksux! :(y) :)

Great job Linksux - I am looking forward to it! :)

+1 merit of course for organising, and for providing such a wonderful prize! :(y) :pink-meeple:

Yes there is an Carcassonne Central group:

Admin is: danisthirty

The trouble with this group is that I didn't restrict it and as such it can't be used as a launching platform for CarcC tournaments on BGA since there are too many non-CarcC members in the group. This upset the previous tournament we ran on BGA somewhat...

Does anyone fancy having a Carcassonne meetup sometime in August?

Sounds good, and thanks for organising/ suggesting. Count me in! :) :(y)

While I'm not commenting on rules I just wanted to add that carcassonne really isn't a "fair" game and can be quite mean when you get really in to it.

That's how I like it! >:D :(y)

I believe he meant dimension wise, aka bigger/ smaller/ same size as Carcassonne tiles :)

Aha right. Now I see, sorry.

I'd say they were somewhere between being smaller and a bit bigger than Carcassonne tiles. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that great report @Decar - it was interesting to read about all the things you stopped to explore which I'd only really seen in passing because of the time-pressures caused by the Carcassonne championship. Glad you had such a good time, and congrats on your awesome haul! :(y)

What size are the beacon patrol tiles?

Square size.

Hope you have a great time there! I'm hoping to arrive by 9 on Saturday so should have a couple of hours to look around before the championship begins...

Hi @Gwendoline and welcome to the forums!

I'm not sure I completely understand the question either I'm afraid, but will echo what others have pointed out that the only rule regarding tile placement is that the landscape features must match against any tile that the placed tile is adjacent to. Field against field, road against road, city against city. Just because a tile exists that would join your partner's meeple into your city doesn't mean that you should have to place it there! Instead, you could use it to make a hole there. Some people don't like these, but you might discover more and more of them creeping into your games as you start to play more competitively!

Enjoy! :) :(y)

Happy birthday Decar! Sorry we didn't manage a surprise visit, but hope you had an awesome day!

I'm pretty sure it came out already... On April 1st!

Oh I thought the joke was only for the pink edition but they were still actually making a special edition.
So does that mean I am wrong and the joke is for the whole thing? In other words, is there not actually coming out a special 40th anniversary edition?

Correct. The joke is the whole thing. It was referred to in the message from HiG on 01/04 that there had been a vote, which Pretty in Pink had won. The intention was that the joke would seem more realistic if there had actually been a vote, which is what this was. Pretty in Pink was never going to actually win it, but the results were hidden until mid-day on 01/04 so it was still vaguely plausible.

Sorry for any confusion. It was a bit involved.

EDIT: probably worth pointing out that the Pretty in Pink version did actually capture the imaginations of a few people who liked it enough that they were prepared to fan-make it!
