Stuff I'm missing
« on: September 01, 2017, 01:14:01 AM »
I haven't been following what has happened the last 3-4 years.
What's new since 2013 (in the old design) and what is still possible to get.
Can you help me with a shortlist ?

In Sweden there's still a good chance to get some old art. Big Box 5 is a good start that includes Hills and Sheep and a unique River tile set. And it's on sale at Webhallen.
  Most of the expansions (if not all already) are listed in the profile list. They are separated by old and new art. A good way to make your list and go from there.

Paul has already beaten me to it with a much better response than my own, but since I made a list I thought I might as well include it:

Die Belagerer/ The Besiegers (maybe - though I think this was late 2013, very hard to find now)
Hills & Sheep (major expansion #9)
German Monasteries
Dutch/ Belgian Monasteries
German Castles
German Cathedrals
German Shopping Centres
German Germans
Darmstadt (also quite hard to get now)
Labyrinth (promo from Spiel Doch! magazine including one tile in the old and one tile in the new artwork)

And probably a load of other stuff I've forgotten about.

Good luck!

PS - Two of the expansions I've listed exist predominantly within my imagination...

Yes, quite the odd post to have chosen posting this. Thought so as well!

Isn't that the Leipzig Market expansion you're getting confused by ...?  ;)

Here's a partial data dump from my collecting spreadsheet. Basically everything 2013 or later that's Carc-I.

Available/affordable:

2013 Wind Roses II (Spielbox) (Die Windrosen II) 6 tiles - Spielbox issue 2013/5 nostheide.de 5.79€
2014 Expansion 9. Hills & Sheep (Schafe und Hügel) 18 tiles - amazon.de 13.99€
2014 Halflings I, Halflings II (Halb so wild I, II) 12 triangular tiles each - cundco.de 4.49€ each
2014 Dutch & Belgian Monasteries (De Kloosters) 6 tiles - cundco.de 4.49€
2014 German Monasteries (Klöster in Deutschland) 6 tiles - cundco.de 4.99€
2015 German Castles (Burgen in Deutschland) 6 rectangular tiles - amazon.de 26.99€; amazon.com $20.99
2016 German Cathedrals (Kathedralen in Deutschland) 6 tiles - cundco.de 4.99€
2016 The Labyrinth (Das Labyrinth) 1 tile - SPIEL DOCH! issue 2016/1, cundco.de 3.90€; nostheide.de 3.65€
2017 The Abbot & The Watchtowers converted to Carc-I format - free download (must register), print & stick on other tiles

Not so affordable:

2013 The Besiegers (Die Belagerer) 6 tiles - hard to find, expensive
2013 Russian Promos I (We Go to Carcassonne) 2 tiles - hard to find, wrong shape, wrong backs
2014 Big Box 5 - available but usually very expensive; webhallen.com 549 kr for Swedish version
2014 Darmstadt promo 3 tiles - hard to find, very anachronistic, inconsistent
2016 Russian Promos II 2 tiles - hard to find, wrong shape, wrong backs

Note: When ordering from cundco.de, international shipping takes a sharp jump somewhere around 15 euro's worth of merchandise, so sometimes it makes a lot more sense to place 2 or 3 smaller orders. Play around with the shopping cart and you'll see.

If it helps, Big Box 5 is on sale at Webhallen for 499 Swedish Krona. Scandinavian Edition.

Big Box 5 is available for 39€ on SpieleOffensive. It was recently on offer with another 20% off.  There will likey be copies at Essen from private vendors for ~20€.

Webhallen was at 549 kr when I wrote this yesterday, and is still the same today.

To find out whether these two sites even ship to the U.S. (so far, nearly all I have tried do not), I attempted to go through the shopping cart on both of them using Google translate — and couldn't make it happen. Google translate does not continue from one page to the next, and if you have one browser tab with the translation and another tab with your order it still doesn't work, because they are different sessions and the translate version doesn't see the shopping cart. I assume there must be some way to do it, but since I'm just trying to report on prices and availability here, I'm not going to invest more time to try to figure it all out.

All of these cheaper options are nice on paper, but for those of us who live in the U.S., don't speak German, Swedish, etc., and can't attend Essen, I think my characterization of "usually very expensive" is reasonable. It was my experience, anyway, when I was trying in futility to find an affordable BB5. Every option was a dead-end. I really haven't been able to find a doable path to a BB5 for anything less than $100-150 plus expensive shipping, and that's quite out of range for me, especially when all I need from it is the tweaked river. (But it sure is fun hearing past tales and future predictions of 20 euro on closing day that we will never be able to access.)

$150-200 for four unique tiles ... it's not hard to see why some people interpret some of these product decisions as exploitative. Of course that's not HiG's pricing, it's just the inevitable secondary-market equilibrium that plagues those who weren't actively in the game at the right time (or place) to get the thing for $50-80 instead of two or three times that. But even $50 for four unique tiles is ridiculous, although that's just a fact of life as well. I was once an industry insider, and like other publishers we certainly knew how to squeeze money out of the loyal core audience by giving them a few things they wanted with a bunch of bloat they didn't need. I hated that, but it is what it is.

I guess it's account effective. My price tag for big box (old art with 7th and 8th player) is 499 SEK. Been ordering a lot from them.

Thanks for the replies:
I actually got The Besiegers (Die Belagerer), Wind Roses, and Expansion 9. Hills & Sheep, before I took the absence from Carcassonne.
I sure won't be buying any Big Boxes for a few new tiles, only if I could find the new tiles only.
Have to look for the others, but I guess I won't find them anywhere.

The only new stuff I got is Amazonas, Star Wars (with expansion) and Under the big Top.
