General / Re: What's up with the River in Big Box 5?
« on: Today at 02:04:17 AM »
To start, I agree on the terminology of River 3.
Mainly as there are indeed quite a few river implementations, and this is the only one with clear different features (although optional in use).
No other river version has these, which makes it stand out.

Then back to the topic:
In general, the backs of all river tiles are dark, due to these being starting tiles. However, this is not always strictly held up by all publishers. I'm not sure where you're based and which language BB5 you have, but these things can be publisher specific.
I'd have to check my BB5's to compare (but I'm travelling so don't have easy access to them).
As NGC54 mentioned, the Romanian exp 6 came with light back river 2 tiles. The Dutch first expansion came with the River 1, and the first print of that also had light backs. Even though the first release of the River 1 in NL had dark backs (a give away at an event). Later releases of the 1st expansion had the river with dark backs.

In short, unfortunately this is something that does not seem consistent across publishers or even prints by the same publisher.
I would expect that sometimes they are on light backs as the same blank tiles can be used for the entire box, but that is speculation.
The general rule is for all River tiles (and all starting tiles for that sake), to have dark backs

Good to see Advent orders arriving!

I think the QR code instead of the physical rules might be something we'll be seeing more from now on.
WoH and Spell Circles also came without rules but only with QR codes on the envelopes.

Cundco have stated they are not planning any reprints of the Spell Circles for now.
My guess is that they first want to clear all stock of this first run.
With that, i would expect the version with the production issue in the advent box of this year

Just to clarify:
Are you looking for a Spiel 22 tile and offering a Spiel 23 tile?
Or are you looking for a Spiel 23 tile and offering a Spiel 22 tile?

In a Cundco newsletter, they've announced the Drawbridges mini expansion for release in a few days, on the 21st.
This will be the start of the Advent promo. From then, this mini will be available to order

I do agree. Not so much to have physical copies available, as I don't mind it too much, but also the large envelopes used.
Especially the WoH comes in a big envelope, even though it doesn't need it.
If there was a rule sheet included, that might justify it hahaha

I guess it is more for being able to use standard sized envelopes

Shipping is indeed a tricky thing, which drives a lot of costs. It is unfortunate that HiG also has to ship everything as parcel.
I have already reduced my Cundco orders, as shipping to the UK is also painful, but even for EU countries and Germany itself it seems to go that way

It is still available to purchase through Cundco, so I don't think anything has gone back.
However, they probably will sell out this stock, and will review with the production company to make sure the quality of any next batch is correct.
I think it would basically be a reassessment of the production and quality, which will take time.
They might have a lot in stock, so who knows how long it will be before they've sold it all

From their post on Instagram, it seems it will be a "Fill the frame" game they will have at the fair for people to play.
Funny that it's a C3 frame, and they put C1 tiles on it XD
