Buy Carcassonne: Safari, of course!

That is what my wife said.  I think we have too many flavors of Carcassonne already.

My stuff made it across the pond.  Not sure what I will do with the extra Spiel Doch tiles.

The Deutsche Post has always been good to me.  The only problems I have had are from Cundco themselves giving me the wrong order. 

My yearly Cundco order reminds me that I know nothing about how VAT taxes work.  I research it, get confused, and look forward to repeating next year.  I don't think I am supposed to pay it because it is technically an export, but whatever.

I got it to work by adding a bunch of copies of the Spiel Doch tiles.   :@

I contacted them.   With my luck the bonus tiles will run out before they get back to me.

The "gifts" expansion adds $20 to shipping.  I guess I will have to live without it.

Never mind!  Whenever I hit 20 Euro, my shipping goes from 6.45 up to 29.95.   So I guess those of us in North American are not getting the 2021 tile

We have most of the mini expansions.   The only ones we ever play with are:
GQ11 (every game)
Siege (regularly - both the 6 tile version and the one from Cult Siege Creativity)
German Castles (regularly)
Halflings (occasionally)
Flyers (occasionally)
Ferries (occasionally)
Mage and Witch (occasionally, but we play with 2 copies to make it worthwhile)
Gold Mines (Rarely)

So to sum up, if you have the old art, get the GQ11 expansion.  Otherwise get the German Castles and wait for the Siege in the new art. 

By the way, I have NEVER seen a completely loose version of the really rare expansions.   Am I the only person who actually plays with the Siege tiles and has an unpunched Plague?  I am not willing to pay "new in shrink" prices for what I am missing, but would love to have a played with Cathars.

You were probably going to buy it regardless.   I would too if I had everything else that they made. 

I don't have a new art base set and was considering getting this, but I really don't want to give them money for this half hearted attempt.  I also need to talk other people out of buying it for me.   :-\

So the new tiles have arrows and they let you add a follower to another of your followers, add a follower to an unoccupied / incomplete feature, or take another turn.   Who phoned this in?

I think I like the Kadoos art more than the C2 art.   :))

Congrats guys!  It is a shame this doesn't make its way in to Pakistan or I could get my coworker to bring me a copy.

I backed at the "Royal" level.  Hopefully I don't regret it.

Nobody complains that Draw Poker & Pinochle never change

I do.  I entered a hold em tournament with a friend a few years ago.  I was glad when I got kicked out and happy to not have to play anymore.  Once you know the odds and stuff, the game kind of plays itself.  I see people at casinos playing blackjack or slot machines for hours on end.  Some people are happy with playing Dominoes, Uno, Mahjong, or Phase 10 every weekend.  I had an aunt that cheated at solitaire.  I don't get it.

Having a colossal edition with moats and without is really silly.  They are offering 2 different sized colossal boxes just for that.  From what I gather, that expansion isn't worth all of that effort logistically. 

I have a pretty big game table and I don't think 3 players and the score board would comfortably fit the colossal edition.   I may get the cheapest version.  I never much really cared for metal coins and slightly better pawns.
