Usually 999 Games is very quick with new releases. I remember getting Safari from them because they were even before HiG with that one
I noticed they did use the image style on a banner during the Dutch&Belgian championships, even stating "De bekende klassieker in een nieuw jasje". Heavily hinting at their C3, but maybe they're getting rid of the C2 stock first?

Haven't heard confirmation from ZMG that their C3 base game is out yet. I remember when i ordered the ZMG BB7 i asked the shop if they had any idea about the base game, and they said they had no idea yet.

A few days ago i was ordering some stuff online, and noticed a listing for the Carcassonne base game. It had it before, but with both C3 and C2 box art, so that was probably old C2 stock.
Now the pictures were all updated to be C3, so i figured i'd take a gamble....

Today i received the parcel, and there it is!

ZMG have made a thing!

And i kid you not, but literally within 3 minutes of me posting the previous post, the postman knocked on the door again!

A few nice additions, in the Nordic version of the C2 Exp. 3, and The Castle from RGG! I'm a happy bunny today

It's been a bit quiet here from my end!  :o

Last week I got to travel a little bit for work, which brought me to Spain! Even though i was only there for 1 night, i managed to squeeze in a mini-meetup with the one and only @Meepledrone !
It was great fun to catch up, have some drinks and talk about Carcassonne for hours!

Of course i couldn't go home emptyhanded, as Meepledrone is notorious for spending my money on Carcassonne boxes i don't have yet.
So he brought goodies with him, which i was more than happy to try and stuff in my carry on!

Most notably to call out are the French Catapult, the French Base Game in the top left (which was a box i hadn't seen before!), and the 2 mini-fanexpansions from Carcassonne Spain for the 2022 tournament!

Then a few days ago, none other than @MMike pointed me in the direction of this magazine:

This is the UK based TableTop Gaming Magazine, who did a Carcassonne cover for their October 2020 edition, for the 20th anniversary of the game. The magazine includes a 4 page article about the game, 2.5 pages about the current major expansions and a little piece about The Book of Carcassonne!
They did 2 versions of this magazine; this one is the Subscriber only cover; the 'normal' version is very similar, only having more text on the front :)

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons are GO?
It looks a lot like the Thunderbirds, but i'm guessing from the same era?

I'm sure @Willem would take them off your hands for their curiosity value and (hopefully) uniqueness!  :yellow-meeple:

I've already commented on the Reddit post that the museum is open for donations such as this  ;)

Sorry! This has really gone on the back burner!
I have received several tiles already from several people, and would of course still love to expand (pun intended) this list!
Everyone is welcome to join in!

They can be used at the Carcassonne Museum to buy a special exclusive visitors item!  ;)

Aha! So that was the mystery item!

No, the mystery item has not arrived yet!
It hasn't?!

The story continues....

During the video, it is referred to as a new spin-off and also the 11th expansion at the same time :)

Looks good!
I love the story of Lady Carcas, and the (supposed) history of the name of the town!

The link seems to send me to a different post by them every time I click.
Maybe this link will work better?
