Other Games / Ultimate Railroads English Rules.
« on: July 07, 2022, 01:41:17 AM »
If you look at the English Rules on (German) website, you can see a major graphic error on page 9, but not on ZMAN Games (English) website. Maybe the USA release could possibly not have this one issue once it is finally released in the USA, estimated July 31. I sent a message to Hans Im Gluck on BGG, so hopefully this will be fixed on their website as they can copy the file from ZMAN.

General / Maps storage

For those of you who own maps, how do you store them? I am trying to figure out the best way to store them while keeping them flat. If there is a product such as a box, please share with photos and links if possible.

The Marketplace / WTB German Railroads (Russian Railroads Expansion)

I know that this is not related to Carcassonne, but I figured I would ask if anyone had a copy of German Railroads they would be willing to sell or know where I could buy a copy for a reasonable price. I know that German Railroads was retail $45 USD, and I can’t see myself paying a small fortune (Ebay $200 USD) for it.

Other Games / Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition
« on: August 12, 2018, 10:39:21 AM »
According to a twitter post from Dice Tower at GenCon, Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition is coming out! The Box says Limited Edition, and the display tag Release Date: Late 2018.
Right next to Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition sits Carcassonne: Safari with the same estimated release.

Here is a twitch video of GenCon and at approx. 4:35:00 Stone Age 10th Anniversary Edition is featured.

In the video, He asked the guy at the booth about the differences between Standard and Anniversary.

-The Game Board is double sided (Original/Winter Theme)
-Winter Theme Version has additional game play/variants
-upgraded components - more detail on meeples/cavemen and other game components

It does not seem to include The Expansion (Style is the Goal), The Casinos, or The Mammoth Herd.

In this case I hope they release a 10th Anniversary Edition of The Expansion (Style is the Goal) with a double sided board (Original/Winter Theme) as well.

BoardGameGeek has the original post where people are talking about it.

I personally love Stone Age and I have The Casinos and The Mammoth Herd Expansions, but not Stone Age:The Expansion (Style is the Goal).

Official Rules / The Tower (New Edition vs Old)
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:59:36 PM »
I was comparing the Rules that come with the ZMAN GAMES English New Edition of this expansion and the CAR 7.4 Rules and noticed a difference.

CAR 7.4 page 52
"Instead of moving the fairy or deploying a follower, builder, or pig, a player may now decide to place one of his or her tower pieces on any tile with a tower foundation which is already in play, or on a tower which is already under construction;114 or to finish the construction of a tower by deploying a follower to the top of it.115"

ZMAN GAMES English New Edition
After placing a tile that has a tower foundation, you may perform one of the four following actions:
Place a Meeple...
Place a Tower Floor on Foundation...
Place a Tower Floor on an open Tower...
Place a Meeple on an open Tower...

It seems the new rules allow interactions with Towers only if a tile with a Tower Foundation is placed, while the CAR allows interactions with Towers with any Tile placement. With the new rules, I feel that there are less opportunities to capture Followers.

BTW, My wife and I just played this expansion for the first time. It was a lot of fun, but definitely a different game.

The Marketplace / WTS: Russian Railroads Mini Expansion
« on: March 21, 2018, 11:09:51 PM »
I recently bought a copy of "Stone Age Casino + Russian Railroads Mini Expansion" for the Stone Age Casino portion. As I don't own Russian Railroads, I figured I would offer it up here. If you are interested, let me know.

I wouldn't mind trading it for something.

General / I Love My Birthday...
« on: September 04, 2017, 11:02:38 PM »
For my 30th Birthday (August 29):
I received Carcassonne 2 expansions Abbey & Mayor and Under the Big Top.

I also received the Oregan Trail: The Card Game & it's expansion Hunting for Food.
Both of which are entertaining but just as hard as the PC game. There are a few house rules/tweaks that make the game and it's expansion feel more balanced regardless of player count, but I will place those comments in a review later on.

JCloisterZone FAQ, Suggestions & Bug Reports / New Art Plugin
« on: June 25, 2017, 06:28:48 PM »
I started playing Carcassonne after the conversion to the New Art.

Would it be possible to create a plugin to used the New Art for the Base and Expansions release thus far?
Also It would be neat to see the Watchtowers, Labyrinth, and Spiel 14,15,16  tiles added.

If not, that's alright, just thought I'd ask.
