Carcassonne Spin-Off - Around the World #3
« on: June 27, 2016, 10:49:56 PM »
On German website there is already information about newcoming spin-off - Carcassonne Amazonas.
I doubt the displayed date of release (26. September 2016), because it should be published olny on Spiel'2016 (13.10.2016).

This spin-off will be first presented at the modell-hobby-spiel in Leipzig - around 2 weeks before Spiel'16 in Essen.

Any info on what we can expect? I've played an own South Seas and its interesting. Haven't really looked into Gold Rush.

I like Gold Rush, because you can "steal" the gold nuggets from the gold mine of the other player.

Amazonas - there will be 2 different figures in that game.
Like the name of the Spin-off said - there is a river...

Any clues on the English Title?

I'd hate to see another Sticks and Stones / Hills and Dales

Carcassonne: Amazonia?
Carcassonne in the Amazon?
Carcassonne: Amazon Adventure?
Carcazonia?

I like the graphics for the landscape tiles and also for the box.

Looks good.  Although the tiles do look rather busy

I see a tile with "4/5" on it, which probably means there are tile(s) that will only be used with certain number of players. Interesting.

Also, wondering if there will be a mini expansion/promo, like with South Seas and Gold Rush.

There  is a mini expansion from Cundco. It is called 'The Watchtowers'I think this is for Carcassonne rather than Amazonas...but there are no specifics yet.  No other clues before Septemeber when the Spiel price guide is released

Yeah, I know about the Watchtowers, but don't think it is for Amazones. I'm guessing it's for New Art Base Game, but who knows... :blue-meeple:

I think the placement of the yellow hut is not correct (see the picture at BGG).
