Carcassonne: South Seas - expansion
« on: October 21, 2013, 11:13:59 AM »
At the booth from HiG is also the CundCo Shop:
 
- Freitag - mini expansion for Carcassonne South Sea
Windroses - the HiG and CoT version (not the Spielbox version)
- The Festival
- nice new stickers and much more

Here is the link to the HiG homepage:
Spiel 2013, HiG feiert seinen 30ten
HiG is celebrating their 30th jubilee (like this year whaleyland and Scott - really interesting).
----------------------------------------
We have so much program and I don't have a CarcC business card for the people there...

Any details on Freitag ("Friday") expansion for South Seas? A photo? Rules? Potential English availability?

Also, are any of the new stickers gameplay-related (or similar, such as the meeple stickers) or are they just promotional material?

Actually, I just got the email from them. Here's the image that was included:


"Game Components:
* 1 Wooden figure: "Friday" (not sure why the figure is named "Friday" still. I can't find any reference for this.)
* 6 Tiles with symbols and different backs

Game Preparation:
* All rules for Carcassonne: South Sea remain unchanged...."

That's all that this preview shows, sadly.

The Friday is someone like Robinson Crusoe.

Ooh...I love those Luggage-meeples! And yay for the Festival reprint (on hopefully thicker tiles)!

Do you already know any of the prices? Maybe they told you....?

No, we will see the prices at Spiel 2013 in Essen.
But at our whiteboard I will put a pocket calculator.

Seriously. If this gets released in standard-sized tile thickness, I will return the ten tiles I stole from my sister's door prize for my wedding two years ago (a perk from a present that was easy to open and seal again).

"Friday" is a character from Robinson Crusoe by Daniel DeFoe. A very fitting addition to South Seas.

I think the tiles of the Friday-expansion could be something like special abilities for the players:

The tiles are randomly distributed. One player always gets one more fish (fisher), another one shell , the third one banana. One player gets the ability to take back a meeple even if he has placed a meeple one is for a better trader.

The left tile could be the one for the first placement of Friday and could be laid near the starting tile.

The picture shows the back side of the 6 new landscape tiles of the mini Friday.

I'm really enjoying all the build-up for Spiel, shame it's a bit far to come from Australia...

I think it could work in this way:

You can take Friday, if you complete an area another player gets trade goods but you don't get any. You place him in one of your areas and get the benefit of your "role" tile.

 >:D
That the figure Friday has that name because that has something to do with the rules.  ;D
No one of you all should resolve the riddle since Thursday when the Spiel 2013 in Essen starts...
