Chinese Carcassonne with the Great Wall

Nice, where Great Wall allows to join Western Culture (Regular Carcassonee) and Eastern Culture (中国的卡尔卡松 +- Chinese Carcassonne)

the genuineness was lost forever the very moment they added a ringmaster in a top hat…
I don’t think there have been active volcanos in Languedoc for quite a while, either…

Absolute truth, but that's easily solvable by considering the narrative world of Carcassonne being set in a Fantasy Medieval France.
That covers all the basic locations and buildings and elements, and also would include volcanos and flying dragons, mages, witches, bridges that require a vertical walk to get on the top of them, phantoms, ghosts... but not modern circuses  >:D

Q. If it's France, why are there german cathedrals and belgian monasteries around?
A. Fine, it's a Fantasy Medieval Europe setting!

Q. If it's Europe, why are there Japanese buildings around?
A. I... I don't know OK?!?!  :))

Chinese Carcassonne with the Great Wall

There was a thread on CarcF about 5 years ago when someone had some ideas about creating a Chinese-based version of Carcassonne, as that could provide a very large target market! The details are not in the WikiCarpedia Fan Expansion Selector/Finder yet, but I have them for a future update. The subject title was "The Great Wall of China" or "Chinesische Mauer", and the proposal by dertoedlichepass. I've categorised it as a "Musing", because it never went beyond the ideas stage, but did touch on what could be included.

See https://www.carcassonne-forum.de/viewtopic.php?t=4127

AutumnForest (C2), Catch Of The Day (C1/2/WD), Cliffs&W'falls (C1/2), Coast (C1/2), FishHuts (C2), Fluvium (C2), NewForest (C2), Harvest (C1/2), Stone Circles (C1/2), Wells (C2), Jordan River 2 (AotC), River I/II (GR)
Devt: Sakura (C2), WinterEdge (C1), WinterCoast (WD/WE) and others

Pretty in Pink gets my vote for being easy to drop into my Mega Carcassonne bag out the gate and being my favorite color. However if Dinosaurs or Trains work to integrate Gold Rush or Hunters and Gatherers into normal Carcassonne I'd love a set to help use some additional carcassonne tilesets in the base game!

Aliens would be sick if the roads look the same and there's compatible grass: go crazy with the rest of it and it'd look like an alien invasion which could be neat.

Guess my vote is for whatever would be best for mashing stuff together: I'd rather it not be completely standalone, and it'd be a great fun anniversary bonus if, say When Dinosaurs Roamed included some maybe optional expansion tiles to help integrate some of Hunters and Gatherers since it's in print  :pink-meeple:

ok, after a long discussion with my husband we decided to vote for railroads. In our opinion this suits Carcassonne best.
Apart from that, I still believe that a summer going into winter theme will be the best alternative  ;D

That pink image, which Asmodee and HiG (and CarcC) have been sharing on social media, looks to me like the spot UV pattern from the 20th anniversary edition. We know from HiG that this 40th anniversary edition is going to be somewhat based on the 20th anniversary edition, but different enough to be its own thing. I think the pink colour of the image has to do with the spot UV process, rather than giving away any sort of clue about the 40th anniversary edition. It is a red herring.

Isn’t it the Magenta colour plate for a box that will hold a set of Carcassonne Collectable Cards?

The box will hold 52 cards in designs and layouts taken from the base game. Each player will be dealt a hand of 7 cards and, in turn, take the top card from a stack of the remaining cards, discarding one from their hand.

Players must create complete features before laying them down in front of them. These will be scored as normal at the end of the game. Players may have several separate, distinct, sets in front of them, or may combine them to create a larger block. When the first player has placed all their cards, the round is over. Players score for completed features, but lose points for each card left in their hand.

Monasteries will be complete when they have four adjacent (touching) cards.

Alternatively, the same basic mechanism is followed, but a central landscape is created and points scored according to the features completed when the card sets are added.

Additional sets of four cards will become available in foil packs, containing several cards from the base game, plus 1 or 2 other, collectable, cards that bring additional features into the game - inns on roads, trade tokens in cities, new card layouts, etc.
