Swan Panasia will have an issue with the base rules for Carcassonne Maps if they want to translate them as is. They don't explain island squares with coats of arms although they explain ferry connections.

Island squares were explained in the Map Chip rules for the Iberian Peninsula...

The Carcassone Maps rules are a bit of a mess. You have the same issue with Waves for the Benelux map or the set up of the US maps...

I had to rearrange some of the info so it would make sense for players just playing with just the maps...  :o

Today, Swan Panasia released Carcassonne Maps - Taiwan. You can find it here:

http://www.swanpanasia.com/products/carc-map-ex-taiwan

Please check the final promo image below. The two start tiles are marked with mountains in this case.

They also released the Map Chips, available here:

http://www.swanpanasia.com/products/carc-map-chips-ex

The rules in Chinese are available for download on on their website too. They can be downloaded from the Taiwan Map page. Here is the link just in case:

https://uploads-ssl.webflow.com/575714cc825e8dbc6c83b98a/61309cfb8b2636430243cded_CarcMaps_Rule_Taiwan_CH.pdf

They translated the latest Carcassonne Maps general rules into Chinese. The Taiwan map uses the same Map-Chip rules as Germany (majority votes promotion placing Map Chips under a meeple). This sounds okay, but they failed to explain how to score island squares with coats of arms, only explained in the Iberian Peninsula Map rules instead of in the general rules.

As a reference, here you are the equivalent rules in English:
* General rules (extended):

* Map Chips for Germany:

Some additional info on the Carcassonne Maps - Taiwan release available in Chinese on SwanPanasia.com (BTW, you can pre-order the 20th Anniversary Edition and the Taiwan map together ;)):

A gift from Germany-Taiwan map expansion

In 2019, Hans im Glück released a set of five European countries map expansions in the exhibition for the first time, including Germany, France, Benelux, British Isles, and Iberian Peninsula; in 2020, two more American map expansions were issued ( US East, US West).
In this important year of 2021, at the sincere invitation of the Neuschwanstein board game, the publishing house prepared a special gift for Taiwanese fans-"Carcassonne Taiwan Map Expansion", to give back to local fans for their 20 years of enthusiastic support.

How could such a good thing fall from the sky?
In fact, Moritz, the CEO of Hans im Glück, has traveled to Taiwan several times. He visited some board game shops, climbed Xiangshan to see 101, and visited Ningxia Night Market. He was very impressed with Taiwan. This is why we became the third one. Jump on the darling of the map expansion of Carcassonne? It may also be because the first Chinese version of the board game that Neuschwanstein represented 20 years ago was "Carcassonne". Now that the swan’s wish comes true? Or maybe it's because the founders of Goose Castle, YOYO and Moritz, are both from Munich, Bavaria, Germany. The friendship between the hometowns is hard to refuse?
According to YOYO, Moritz agreed to this cooperation proposal in one fell swoop, drawing an exclusive expansion of the Taiwan map of Carcassonne for Taiwan, allowing fans in Taiwan to enjoy the fun of putting Carcassonne territory on the map of their hometown. It is worth mentioning that all counties and cities in Taiwan can find marks on the map, so that everyone can proudly point out their hometown!

I just sent an email to Swan Panasia asking about batch orders to Europe, Spain included. So far, it seems you can pre-order the 20th Anniversary Edition + Carcassonne Maps Taiwan for local shipping (Taiwan and Malaysia), so I contacted them to see how to arrange orders shipped abroad.

If you are interested, it will be three of us in Spain for the time being, including you, DrMeeple and myself.

Willem in the UK was also interested in order a lot of stuff too.

Bumsaklaka in Slovakia.

Anyone else?

This sounds a very good idea. Please, keep me informed.  :yellow-meeple:

What about CundCo? Perhaps they will also import it to Europe.

I checked Cundco this morning and no news from them.

In any case, I also asked HiG about this matter on their Discord server a few minutes ago. Let's see what they have to say.

I’d be interested as long as it isn’t crazy money
Obviously I’d be happier if Cundco sell it

@Meepledrone as you wrote, that there is no scoring island rule in rules.
That rules are distributed by QR code, that is such easy issue, just update that file.
Maybe wrote to Swan to update this issue. Thay have sources for that rules, it will be easy to add this there.
So URL for always "updated" rules :D
