It has been, work and family has been most chaotic.  It was nice to see everyone at Spiel this weekend though, and before work kicks off again, I thought I'd best get to the forum.  I hope you've been well too!

I've not tried Venice Connection, but I think I have read someone's review of it. Looks neat.

I quite like Kingdomino.  I seem to recall preferring Queendomino, for the little extras it offered. But all the subsequent outings and expansions have left us disappointed.  I think this might simply be that the original is the best.  :(y)

Welcome to the forum melaniewalker! I've been catching up on posts, as I've not been able to get to the forum for a long long time!

That sounds like a great game, it's always nice when you make the most of the tiles that you've been given.

I've certainly had many close games, but I think my favourite was playing against Udo Schmitz in-person, who organized Carcassonne-on-tour.  It was a deciding match of a team tournament, and with my penultimate tile, I made a vague attempt and glomming onto a field to take majority.

I stupidly drew my next tile during his turn, and looked at it.....I wish I hadn't because it was precisely the tile I needed.  Udo thought it best to score points, but he was tentatively considering blocking any chance of me joining.  I knew if he made eye contact with me he'd know I had the tile I needed.... I have a weak poker face.  Thankfully I he didn't look, and I was able to win the game, and the tournament.

"Unbelievable" Udo echoed.

Ah great memories.

We'll have to try and organize something soon, so that I can give you the double-sided Wilko tape.  The calendar is looking pretty full at the moment though.  Perhaps nearer Christmas?

We did a post about the available score tracks some time ago - you can compare some of them here too:

Carcassonne-Forum have permission from HiG to convert existing expansions from C2 (and I presume C3) into C1 (and C2 respectively).  Because the expansions are owned by HiG outright, they are not considered fan-expansions so we must respect their wishes.

HiG has agreed that expansions can be converted by CarcF, but they limited the speed as which that can be done.

Very much out of date here, but wanted to take a few minutes to thank Linkarssonne (Linksux) for scheduling such a great tournament; and creating the coveted Pinkassonne.

Congrats to Leven on his victory too. +1s from me

HiG found out about this leak during Essen Spiel.  They explained that sometimes interns would use images from their art asset folder to make nice images and clearly this time there is a mistake.  We're likely to see this one during Advent.  I suggested that the intern would not be making this mistake again....  C:-)

Thanks! I'll get onto the WiCA team so they can correct the information. It's misleading a lot of people.

Have you had any luck finding a C3 edition that will match?

Please can you list how much you might be willing to pay for each of these items?

We like to keep all negotiations for items in the open if possible so that everyone can see what 'reasonable' rates are.

Thanks a lot.  Good luck with your search.

News and Events / Re: HiG's website is back

Glad to see it's back up and running on Wordpress.

To be fair to them, the website is in German and your browser is performing the translations.

What I did think was interesting was that it's now officially titled: Carcassonne 3.0...

Carc 3.1 when?
