Good eye. I did not notice the change. As Bumsakalaka stated, I would assume for religious neutrality. Much easier to reach a larger fanbase that way.

I am guilty of buying two fake world cup tiles quite a while back before knowing any better. However, the seller did make it clear that they were reproduction's and I think I paid $2 a tile.

I really enjoy the gameplay the tile brings to the game. We generally do not play without them!

Looks like Christmas! Nice collection!

I better sell my old ones now before they pop up on eBay!

This seems a bit of a mess... Maybe they mixed up all they had in stock...

That seems to be the best explanation.

Logically speaking, I do not see how it would be different whether you ordered from the English or German page either. They are both nested

Nice buy KBellon. Similarly, I purchased my original WE used and it was the one that included the gingerbread man, but it also came with the standalone gingerbread man expansion. Using both of them at the same time in games has created some huge scoring differences between first and last place!

TheDoctor_13 the new version is similar enough to match. I have attached a photo with tiles from the original WE, Crop Circles, Gingerbread, and the new WE.

I was very pleased to find my order of Kadoos and Ghale Roodkhan sitting on the front porch today! The quality and artwork is even better than what I perceived from the pictures! I am very pleased with both of them.

Many thanks to Mohsen for making it happen. Merit from me!

Additionally, thank you Willem for the bit of translation earlier in the thread. I was trying to figure out what to do with the cubes myself. +1 merit!

Why do you want HiG to run out of stock? >:D

As I commented on another thread, the LebD tile could be ordered as a spare tile... just in case you cannot live with the expansion misprinted version with 2 LebC tiles...

The sooner they run out the sooner we can sell ours at a premium again (Totally kidding ;D)! Just want to spread the love. I know of a few people have been trying to track it down. I ordered two myself to tuck away. You never know when the kids might spill their hot chocolate and need a replacement tile!

Limited stock of The Gingerbread Man is available again at Cundco.

It seems they really are cleaning out all of the corners to get ready for the 20th Anniversary!

Thank you Allograft . I agree. He is a great guy!

I do have Cathedrals as well MMike  :D

That is the best kind of surprise Willem. Finding out you already have something, especially when it is fairly hard to come by! I had decided not to worry with 999s version (especially living in the US), but I could not pass it up when the opportunity arose. I agree with you on the fine line. I like to have the mini expansions that are in different colors/shades, but I am not too caught up over the base game and major expansions that have variations. Such as the earlier C2 cities that are darker than the newer ones.

As my completionism continues to take turns through never ending corridors of the rabbit hole, I feel I may have finally hit the end of one of the paths!

Thanks to The-Edge I was able to obtain a 999 Games version of De Klooster!

Can anyone confirm whether or not I am missing another version? The only thing I can think of is if the Japanese Temples that came in the base Japanese game is different (I consider major color variations as different).

Very nice supertopix!

For those who do have the version with the river, how do the rivers line up? I tracked down two sets and to my dismay the river tiles in both are a little off centered from one another. I noticed on BGG that someone else had a similar issue, though theirs was worse than mine.

It is packed and ready to send out DieterR!

Thanks again everyone for the kind words. I'm glad to give a little back! Who knows..I might do something similar in the future!

It is difficult to narrow down a "favorite" expansion in Carcassonne. It it has changed a few times for me, and I am sure it will change again in the future! I find The Big Top keeps my kids more engaged with the game. They are constantly guessing who is going to get the flea, and who doesn't like stacking meeples?!? At least this expansion gives you points for doing it ;D.

Congratulations to DieterR! The correct answer is Under the Big Top.

Thanks to all who participated!
