I think this thread had proved that that's the only name that we can all agree on...

Please, we're talking The River II, not The Lion King II.

It should be The River II: The Count's (Wounded) Pride.

Haha, love it.

So might ‘that other river’ be called: The River that shall not be named?

Rather than continually assigning an arbitrary name, I asked my tiles from big box 5 what they preferred to be known as.

Aude was their response. So I think that settles the matter.

The River (BB5) dilema is not unique:
  • Crop Circles II is Crop Circles, and Crop Circles is Crop Circles I!  :(y)
  • Do Halflings I and Halflings II exist, or there is only Halflings? Or Halflings Spielbox and Halflings HiG?
  • Russian Promos I, Russian Promos II, The Choice of Bogatyr and Baba Yaga’s Hut, Hero at the Crossroads and Baba Yaga, Solovei Razboynik and Vodyanoy... ?
  • Cathars / Siege / The Besiegers or just The Besiegers?
  • Wind Roses II?!
  • Monasteries in Germany, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium, Japanese buildings or just Special Monasteries? Also, Dutch Monasteries, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium I, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium 999 Games, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium II, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium HiG, Temples in Japan...
  • The Labyrinth or The Labyrinths?
  • And there is only one The Festival, nobody cares about the number featured on the tile, be it 10, 15...

The Festival in C2 was called The Festival II too.

very good List, thanks  :D


The River (BB5) dilema is not unique:
true words  :(y)
  • Crop Circles II is Crop Circles, and Crop Circles is Crop Circles I!  :(y)
yeah, thats  >:D
  • Do Halflings I and Halflings II exist, or there is only Halflings? Or Halflings Spielbox and Halflings HiG?
The Spielbox version was called in english Halflings and in german Halblinge;
The HiG name for his own shop edition and also for the Spielbox version was Halb so Wild.........strange
  • Russian Promos I, Russian Promos II, The Choice of Bogatyr and Baba Yaga’s Hut, Hero at the Crossroads and Baba Yaga, Solovei Razboynik and Vodyanoy... ?
The only true names are the russian ones, so none of them mentioned here - there doesnt exist any official translation from neither from Hobbyworld or from HiG
  • Cathars / Siege / The Besiegers or just The Besiegers?
All three: Die Katharer, Die Belagerer & The siege
  • Wind Roses II?!
hmm, both version are originally only windroses... I and II are fan descriptions
  • Monasteries in Germany, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium, Japanese buildings or just Special Monasteries? Also, Dutch Monasteries, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium I, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium 999 Games, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium II, Monasteries in the Netherlands & Belgium HiG, Temples in Japan...
Klöster in Deutschland, De Kloosters (localized 999 Games edition), Dutch Monasteries & Japanese buildings :o
  • The Labyrinth or The Labyrinths?
The first given official german name by Nostheide@Spielbox was "Die Labyrinthe von Carcassonne!"
I dont know why HiG caled it later in the extended rules the Labyrinth (Das Labyrinth)
  • And there is only one The Festival, nobody cares about the number featured on the tile, be it 10, 15...
Agree

* My answers are refering only to C1
** My descriptions are from the official german rule-sheets from HiG and from the rule-sheets and descriptions in german spielbox magazine.
*** CundCo tilelist is fanmade, it doesn´t count as valid source, in my opinion.

And now here the final boss:
 :o Games quarterly expansion, games quarterly no.16, Games quarterly expansion no. 16, the mini expansion,     
Carcassonne GQ Promo Tiles....and so on
I gave up on this...
::)

Maybe we should just admit that there is no real name for it  :P
..... or maybe >12 New Carcassonne Game Tiles Inside> is the one and only true name  >:D

● Carcassonne shopdisplays (esp.dicegame.+ Minis ger.)

I'm pretty sure the only official 1 and 2 numberings are for the River and Halflings, all the others are purely fan-made. Also I wouldn't really equate these with the River situation necessarily as most of these already have distinct official names.
None of the names for Russian tiles you listed are real btw, the actual official name for that tile collection is Каркассон Русские сказки (Carcassonne Russian tales), so there is no ambiguity there.

@DIN0: I wasn't aware about the real name of the Russian Promos. The WICA page does not mention it.
