The other two tiles feature the Alhamba Palace in Granada, Spain and Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy.

So congratulations to all the fans from UK, France, Italy and Spain that will enjoy these wonderful tiles twice as much. ^-^

Haha, I wonder if the other 8 pentominoes will follow at some point in the future.

First thought, "that's so cool!".  Second though, "how in the world is that going to be stored efficiently?".

This expansion's purpose is to give a headache to those who want to store all their expansions in 1 third-party box  ;)

You may need to place the mega tiles in the pocket or area where you store your scoreboard, your WoF/City of Carcassonne tableaus or some rulebooks.

A 3x3 tuckbox would suffice... for the time being

I'm just happy they finally pay tribute to me, by releasing a tile in the shape of a W!  ;)
Don't know who the other tiles are for, but clearly the Circus Maximus tile is a tribute to me  8)

Wonderful tiles. I hope the symbols of them mean "the first player playing a meeple on a X will be able to play the special tile with the X symbol" or something similar.
