Official Rules / Re: New mini expansion: The Signposts

It should be in the singular, not plural (country). And no, it is not about HK, it was one weird flag that none of us in the discord channel could address which country represents

I like the idea of this mini, but I agree with all of you that the arrows are not spectacular.

I don't know, but I feel that since HiG hired the new designer, everything is quite different in the game's aesthetics.
- Font face
- Disproportionate watermarks
- Rounded titles
- Clipped cities
- Mamuts and sandwiches  :o
- Blue arrows in the 20th anniv.  :-X
- Flag of inexistent country
- Over cartoonized new cover (I really like it!  ;D )
- etc.
Maybe I am wrong, and the changes are more influenced by the "new" leadership of HiG; who knows.

I know it is easy to criticize and difficult to create, but I always remember that we are customers. Same in a restaurant, you complain if your food is cold or if it looks awful. The difference is that here they can easily ignore us ;D

Some of you could correctly think that there's no accounting for taste (as I show in my poll in BGG). However, introducing significant changes in a product intended to be collectible is a risky strategy. They experimented with the new art and faced a lot of complaints about it; even KJW prefers the old art, as he mentioned in an interview. Perhaps they did not learn about it, or maybe they realized that this is an excellent way to make more money  :o

Certainly, this is what most of us expected: https://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=3497.0

From what we've seen, it's the more squared edges

Thanks!

Pretty cool box! Thumbs down for the other changes, but the box looks awesome!

Some good samaritan to sell me the new empty box  ;D

Anyone knows if this spiel tile comes in the new rounded tiles, or in the perfect "old" square tiles.

Thanks!  :red-meeple:

Interesting, so maybe this change also will affect Russian editions.  :-\

At least there is something good with this design. I can consider that my collection is completed >:D

Out of curiosity, do you know if the shape of the tiles is exactly the same as what we see in Russian editions?

Thanks for the update Allograft  :(y)

Yes, for sure C. 2.2 (a.k.a. clipped buildings) are here to stay, but what I was trying to say is about the iconography of the 20th expansion, those blue arrows. I feel that they do not fit well with the aesthetic of the tile itself.

Great! thank you Allograft

I know that making the 20th-anniversary edition a quasi-spin-off is a bad idea, as you both mentioned, but I hope this becomes true. I don't want to buy any mini-expansion or maxi-expansion that includes that iconography. I can deal with the clipped buildings  :'( ; however, those icons in the 20th-anniversary expansion are so discordant with the entire aesthetics of the game that I wish they just discard and never use them again.

Really, I wish they "catapult" them!    ;)

lol, you make me laugh about the football balls! To be honest with you, I am surprised that option is even chosen multiple times in my poll. Most people usually are more attracted by aesthetics, so clipped, incomplete, or abstract things may not be very appealing at some point. In the end, this is just a matter of taste, like the radioactive green change or the dramatic Matthäus-to-Pätzke transition, pleasant for some, unpleasant for others, and completely irrelevant for the rest.

Until now, there are 10.6% of clipped-cities fans out there. Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn  >:D

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Thank you for the info! I finally bought some of them from Cundco last year, but it is always good to know that there are other places to buy them (at least USA maps)!
