Could this be an April Fools' joke?

What a nice date to release something like that...  :yellow-meeple:

Did they mention that players wearing pink get bonus points?
And the starting player is the one with pink eyes  ;D

Haven't read the rules yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if that would be part of it.

Just got my review copy in, will be playing it and writing a review soon!

Hi, matteo.kindt and welcome to the forum!  It's funny you mentioned this today.  I too was interested in this special edition so ended up making my own.  https://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=6338.msg91275#msg91275
I just finished printing and gave it the first playtest last night.  It was a lot of fun (even though I lost), and I thought it looked great on the table.  I took pictures, but the lighting didn't do it justice.  If you or anyone else are interested in this I can add it to the downloads.  Cheers!
It's all fun and games...until the Mirror Zone comes out.

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!

And they made it, didn't they?
