Willem indeed, Daniel Chard mentioned it on a Facebook group... I don't have it, and it looks more like a collectible item than a tile you can play, isn't it?
If that's the case... I'm not feeling incomplete without it, I love to play with all the tiles I have so I can feel fine without this one :D
Also, as I told him on the group: "if it's not listed on Wica, it's not official enough for me, that's my excuse" (and this avoids me using the very few € Carcassonne left me before finding the few expansions I'm still missing :D )

Anyway: do you have more info about this tile? I think I heard about it on the forum but can't find it anymore... Was it a fan made tile?

Watch out for that guy, he's definitely a dodgy one... ;)

@danisthirty I'm reading a chapter from his book every evening, I know how sneaky he can be, yes!

Yes it is!
We've read the first "part" of the book I'd say (intro, roads, cities and... Monasteries? Cloisters? You know what I mean...), and will soon start reading the tips to trap meeple.

Some of the tips we learned so far are now used in every game we play, we also noticed many things we were doing without realising it, the fact to realise those were interesting moves encourage us to use them more often too.

I recently played with 2 friends of mine, who both enjoyed the game so much they bought it the very next day, and I gave them some of the tips while playing so they quickly learned to establish tactics to enjoy the game even more.

We had a few laugh reading it too, I know my gf especially loved the "Carcassonne" pronounciation (we're both french speakers and she's an english teacher), so it's definitely a book we both appreciate reading!

Be careful, I can just as easily add it to the WICA  ;)

It is a fan made tile, almost more as a wink or even a joke. Made by @MMike !
I got one from him, as have some others, and I got mine even signed by Klaus-Jurgen Wrede, along with other Spiel tiles  ;D

But it is not an "officially" produced tile

What tile is everyone talking about? Been reading the conversation the last few days and feeling a bit confused.  ;D

I suppose, it's @MMike 's "Spiel '1" (stone age style with Volcano) fan made tile signed by KJW

And "it's official" means, that signed KJW (years ago) means that La Porxada of official. So also Spiel '1 signed by KJW means, that it's official also...

That's right!

Dan's Mustachioed tile is official too - KJW signed it.

I think there's an official milk sachet expansion too.... although his signature might have rubbed off by now.
