Wir nehmen das 20-jährige Jubiläum von Carcassonne zum Anlass eine wichtige Änderung vorzunehmen. Die Carcassonne Rückseite ist mittlerweile etwas veraltet und aus unserer Seite etwas Farblos.

Deshalb stellen wir euch heute das neue Design vor.

Beginnend mit der Jubiläumsausgabe werden alle folgenden Grundspiele, Erweiterungen und Mini-Erweiterungen ab August 2021 mit der neuen Rückseite produziert.

We take the 20th anniversary of Carcassonne as an opportunity to make an important change. The Carcassonne backside is a bit outdated and from our side a bit colorless.

That's why we present you the new design today.

Starting with the anniversary edition, all following basic games, expansions and mini-expansions will be produced with the new back from August 2021.

What do you think?

It's excellent news!

But it does mean I'll have to buy all the expansions again!

The Dutch 999Games have come prepared for this!

https://www.999games.nl/tegelsleeves-voor-carcassonne?utm_source=fb&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=carcassonne&utm_content=sleeves

For anyone who doesn't want to buy all the expansions with the new backs, or who want to combine the 20th anniversary edition with earlier editions, they will be releasing special tile sleeves.
Looks like they will have the old backs showing, so you can mix!

Well that effectively qualifies it as C3 in my book.

‘..all base games, expansions and minis from August 2021..’

So this years Spiel tile? Will it already have been printed? Or will it come with the new back? Or a choice of backs? Perhaps it will come like Labyrinth, as a pair one for each?

How long will it take till all C2 expansions and minis available with new backs?

This just leaves me with so many questions!

Good point Vital, are you just teasing us Meepledrone? emoji code48]emoji code23]

That seems like a strange qualification criteria since the backs were the same between C1 and C2... ?

I would have used a nice comic sans "C", instead

I will have to start a new collection!  :o
We called C2.2 the new design with crowded cities... Should C2.3 be the version with crowded cities and new backs?  ::)

New backs and confirmation that expansions will come with these backs going forward from August does it for me yes, as I said, ‘in my book’, others are free to come to their own conclusions. emoji code846]

Yeah, thanks for this awesome news on April first !  :yellow-meeple:

Did they also make official the fact that the 20 anniversary is an online game only, the box containing only codes for the online game and accessories like meeple stickers?  ;D

In that case you can use the meeple stickers on your fridge.
