Carcassonne maps: Taiwan
« on: August 27, 2021, 08:01:43 AM »
Hi everyone,

Yesterday looking for some Carcassonne content, I found this post on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CTCPYY5hAIX/
In which there was a fragment of what looks like Carcassonne maps Taiwan. The same information was posted on their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/katecatboardgames/photos/a.314921258669413/1831042797057244/



I thought this was a fan expansion (similar to the Ukraine map posted some days ago in BGG), but today I saw on the Facebook page of Swan Panasia (Carcassonne producer in Asia) this photo:

So, maybe it is kinda official!

Hey everyone!

The legendary #Carcassonne 20th Anniversary Edition is now available for pre-order!
And Swan Panasia, our favorite Neuschwanstein board game in Taiwan, has also made a great effort to produce the #Taiwan map expansion that will not be sold alone!
  
In 2019, a set of 5 map expansions of European countries, including Germany, France, UK, Benelux, and Iberian Peninsula, were released for the first time in the exhibition, and 2 map expansions of the US (US East and US West) were released in 2020.

This year, at the request of New Swansea, we have created a map expansion of Taiwan to reward the fans of "Carcassonne" in Taiwan.

The expansion is basically a poster paper (594x841mm).
You will need to use the basic version of Carcassonne and any of the Carcassonne expansions to play!
The Chinese rules will be presented as an online pdf via the QRcode (same as the original publisher) in the lower right corner of the map.

The map + commemorative edition will be available for pre-order on 9/3 (Fri).

The font and characters are still being adjusted, and the main focus will be on the product images announced on the official website when officially released.
  
Information on the Chinese version of the "Carcassonne 20th Anniversary Edition" board game ↓↓↓↓
Board game designer: Klaus-Jürgen Wrede (KJW)
The original publisher of the board game: Hans im Glück

Looks like some rule translations will have to be made, based on the info we got.

Let's see if Swan Panasia is just translating the basic Carcassonne Maps rules into Chinese or they have a Map Chips expansion for it. So far, the map of Taiwan doesn't seem to show any special symbols for them.

Interesting are those "island" tile places with Coat of Arms.
How will be this scored?
Imagine tile RFFF with Monastery.
+2 for Road or +2 for Monastery or +2 for both or +2 for first finished feature?
How much points for Monastery at all?

Island squares with coats of arms are explained in the Map-Chip rules for the Iberian Peninsula map:

Island squares with coats of arms

You can only place tiles on island squares if they have been connected with a ferry route from the mainland (see general rules here). If you place a tile on a square with a coat of arms, you'll score 2 points for each coat of arms immediately.

I also included this info in the general rules of Carcassonne Maps. Same case for the Waves on the Benelux map.
