The Ukraine tiles were announced to be limited, but no quantity was given.

This morning, they limited them to 3 per customer maximum.
However, during the day that changed to 10 per customer max.
So we feel they are pretty well available, and there will be plenty on cundco.

I do want to say, please do not buy them from eBay or similar sites!
Hans im Glück are donating 150% of the profits from the Ukraine tiles and maps to charity. They do not profit of them, it is for a good cause!
Please check Cundco, and if you see that they are available, please share here to notify others so we can all benefit from this offer, as well as supporting a good cause.

Good to hear it @Willem +1 merit from me

Thanks for the update Willem! Let's hope the numbers are indeed high. But I have to agree that making a charity tile explicitly limited is a strange choice. The other charity items in the past were not limited.

10 per customer? They like to feed the sharks/the scalpers.

Charity supporters would pay more for one (ore two, or three) and let the money go where is supposed to go. So 30€ for three tiles (e.g.), not for ten tiles.

Man, I 200% agree with you but I'm not travelling to Germany just for one tile. Solution to avoid scalpers? Don't make the tile limited AT ALL.
I trust you and I'm sure they'll print many tiles and they will be easy to find on Cundco even on 15th of October but why should I be worried they will not? Print AS MANY tiles as there's people that want them and 1) make everyone happy 2) do a lot more charity and 3) prevent scalpers to profit.
The concept of limited printing is nonsense in this case.
I forgot to score the fairy bonus point. Again.

Well. As you can see. C2 were started in 2014.
Ghana tiles - School expansion in C1 is still available and not sold out.
8 years after releasing C2.
So iunderstand that hig don't want to print maybe 10000 tiles if they can not predict how much of tiles will be sold.

Tile or not, nothing is stopping you from donating to charity  ;)

10X 3€ tile provides better granularity than 3X 10€ tile, so the potential supporters have more options on how much to spend. Also 10€ for a single tile is kind of a lot for the primary market, even if it is for charity purposes. From the point of the buyer, it is still a normal product.

I’m talking from the point of view of a gamer that want to support a charity, and is not interested in scalping.

Edit: I just realized that I did write in French!
I woke up every hour last night (Quebec Hour) to be sure not to miss anything :P I will try again when they announce the 'Christmas sale' with the spiel '22 tile.  Shipping was too high to take the Ukrainian Map for now but I still get the Bet mini-expansion and 3 Ukraine tiles :-) Great day to everybody!


Je me suis réveillé à toute les heures cette nuit (heure du Québec) pour ne rien manquer... et malheureusement pas de Tuile Spiel '22. Mais bon j'ai quand même mes 3 tuiles Ukraine. Pour la map je vais attendre à la possible prochaine vente de Noel pour la tuile '22 car ça fait grimper de beaucoup le transport!! Bonne journée à tous :-)
