Quizzes, Puzzles and Challenges / Carcassonne Central: Advent Quiz MMXXII
« on: November 29, 2022, 11:09:03 AM »
Hi all,

For those unaware of what it is really going on, I will just break it for you: Christmas is coming!!! Again... So does Winter... at least in the Northern Hemisphere!

In preparation of the coming events, here at Carcassonne Central, a lot is happening behind the scenes again. The Meeple Council is in session discussing whether phantoms should be allowed to be reinstated as acrobats...

This is just a smoke screen, because the real agenda for today is...

The Advent Calendar Quiz MMXXII

Stay tuned, because on December 1st you have a date... Ahem... a date with FATE DESTINY 'S CHILD!

Ready or not, the clock is ticking!

@Challa007 attended Spielwiesn in Munich and made some friends at the HiG booth. Brigitte Fuchs provided some official clarifications about Mists over Carcassonne as detailed here:

A few posts earlier in the same topic, @Challa007 also included some clarifications distilled from her games that may be interesting to newcomers to the spin-off:

Santa Claus just arrived in The Nethelands and Belgium direct from from Spain... Ask any members from those countries. Ask them... ;)

From there he stopped at Carcassonne Central for the Christmas preparations...



This means the Advent Calendar Quiz is coming up... I will be required to work on that day and night to satisfy the Meeple Council. What will be the prize this year? It will be difficult to guess... as always!

Hope to see around you soon.

Do you have any whishes in mind?

News and Events / The Meepledrone Diaries - Essen or Bust 2022
« on: October 16, 2022, 08:17:56 AM »
Prologue

October 4th 2022

Dear Meeple Diary,

As you well know, it all started in August. After a few tries, I couldn't put together a party of valiant Iberian Carcassonne fans to attend together the Essen Spiel fair. I was on vacation, so I was just relying on pure luck to be able to succeed in September.

All of a sudden, I got this message from Tom to join a Carcassonne Central party to Essen along with Dan and Willem... Holy Meeples! I was reading the messages as I was wandering the streets of Mallorca admiring the peculiar signs written on cans. All of a sudden, I found myself staring at this traffic sign... Was this any type of heaven-sent sign?

It took me 5 milliseconds to say yes.

XOXOXO
Meepledrone

HiG has declared in the Exp. 11 rules that there are no official rules when combining it with other expansions, major or minor. This seems to have created some response from some fans in the comunity, as you can see in the following ongoing discussion on Reddit started by u/threelonmusketeers, a fellow fan and member of the community:

General / Carcassonne Spain - Podcasts, Twitch and other initiatives
« on: April 30, 2022, 11:27:05 AM »
Dear all!

Carcassonne Spain was founded a few months back. Its members got together after meeting online while playing on BGA during the pandemic. Some of them even participated in the world championship 2021 at Essen.

The organization is sponsoring various initiatives to reach out to Spanish-speaking Carcassonne fans for starters. If you are interested you may join the Carcassonne Spain group on Telegram:

https://t.me/CarcassonneSpain

A Discord server is also available, if you are interested in joining, just send me a PM.

A Carcassonne Spain member -Joaquin- is running a podcast called Meeple Podcast, where he interviews members of the Spanish community and some renown players from other countries such as Melvin Quaresma (Posdcast #4) or Alexey Pegushev (Podcast #9). These two are in English, so some of you may be interested in listening to them. You may find the podcast on Spotify:

https://open.spotify.com/show/1DQGPeuXucP7JMHPltMEw7?si=7HjGk_lZSEOVORHeMU3w0A

Another initiative is a Twitch channel run by Frank, where some interesting games on BGA are analyzed for the enlightment of the community. You can find the channel here:

If you want to know more, please let me know.
