Hi Guys, what can I expect in terms of Carc at Essen? First time attendee, and only there for one day (either Friday or Saturday, don't know yet) and want to make sure I can pick up/see whatever I can.

It's a very important year for Carcassonne, so I think there will be more added to this list in September, but so far the announcements have been for:

The new around-the-world spin off:  The Amazonas.
A new mini expansion : The watch tower

The new star wars expansions and Abbey and Mayor are already available.
Speculation there will also be:  A new Big Box for the new artwork.  The Japanese monasteries.
You'll miss the gathering on Thursday night unfortunately.
No doubt there will be a gift box with a spiel tile like the previous 2 years.

Are other and previous mini expansions usually available too?
I literally have no idea what to expect: I've never considered it an option to attend but it's kinda fell into my lap this year.

I suspect the a lot of mini-expansions available on cundco will be available on the HiG stand.  It'll be my first time too - so it'll be very exciting!

Cundco has its own booth every year. Spielbox too!

Everything that is available online can be purchased there, normally.

The Essen release list is available again:

http://www.merz-verlag-en.com/new-releases.html

Nothing obviously new on there from HiG - but Did notice that Schmidt Spiele is publishing a new game from Klaus-Jürgen Wrede:

Die Baumeister des Colosseum - Looking forward to seeing this - best of luck to him!

I don't think I've seen the answer here but I asked Andreas Kramer at Cundco what edition of Carcassonne The Watchtower mini-expansions will be for.

'Hello Simon,

this will be the new 2nd edition.

best regards
Andreas Kramer
Carcassonne & Co GmbH '

I think it's fair to say that we have most likely come to the end of the line of Carcassonne 1st edition content!

Wait? Did I miss something? They changed the farming rules?
And how would they want to reintegrate them via Watch Towers...
