Please do! It would be nice a wider selection of tiles and see if they colour match as badly or better.

I've just been thinking about this and perhaps the player's original copy wasn't from HiG or came from a different publisher.  To my knowledge Princess and Dragon is only available from Germany at the moment and perhaps the colour palettes differ slightly due to region differences in the commercial printers used.  Don't be too hesitant to dismiss this one.

I think the dragon icon, the princess icon, the portal and the volcanoes are all improvements over the original. But those green/brown colours ... i just can't.
I actually like the old "princess" icon better. First because the new one looks more like a modern bimbo dressed up with a crown for carnival. Second, because in the German version it isn't a princess after all, but a "lower" noblewoman, so the crown does not fit. I wonder, why HiG did not go all the way, then and renamed the expansion "Prinzessin und Drache".

I also like the portal better, though. I, too, have this "volcano" issue, and, although the naming does not support this, I never considered this as a true "magic portal" in the vain of Stargate, but rather the entrance to a secret underground passage. This would fit the theme of regular, non-fantasy medievil Carcassonne as well of the "fairy tale" of P&D, and is also supported by either artwork on the tiles.

CCII - 3rd expansion:
It was a wish from KJW to get a the lighter brown for the background in the cities.

Does that mean that future editions of CarcII will also have this lighter colouring?

And will this include Big Boxes, assuming they do them?
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.

The roofs are a sort of grey but they mirror the blue colour of the sky. The blue of the new Carcassonne Edition is simply blue without any grey and that is awful.
