Edit: The email also says mentions that the Winter Edition expansion will be available.

Is it a new Winter Edition expansion or the Gingerbread's return?

Can someone edit up some of these tiles Carc 1 style? I don't feel like buying the new art just for one mini expansion

Having seen the tiles I don't get the feeling this expansion is going to be worth it.

The watchtower guys look like some kind of adjustment of The messages. 1 point per roadtile in a certain distance (8 tiles?)?

I'm looking forward to seeing these tiles in the flesh/ cardboard. Regardless of the rules, I'm pretty sure I'll be buying this anyway as I like the look of the tiles and think they will be a nice addition to my new edition.

Having seen the tiles I don't get the feeling this expansion is going to be worth it.

I am almost positive that the Carcassonne community will develop an old-art version of this expansion in due time. (If I had to guess, it will come from CarcF, as they brought the abbot gardens into the old art.) And I think that's worthwhile, especially knowing all the old art fans (especially completionists) in the community. Plus, I think the old art version will look better!

For me, though, that means this expansion is going to be competing for blank tiles against the many fan expansions that have been released. And since I am not a completionist, I honestly don't expect that this expansion is going to ever hit my table, as there are numerous fan expansions that are more compelling to me.

In all fairness though, I will have to wait to see if the rules pleasantly surprise me or not.

UPDATE: Indeed they are already working on it over at CarcF. :(y)

Rough translation of the German rules from Fritz_Spinne at CarcF:

When a street or the city is completed, which includes a Watchtower with a Follower on it, the Watchtower scores first and then the completed city or road scores as normal.

The Watchtower scores for the Watchtower tile and the surrounding 8 tiles (like a monastery):
  • 3 points for each monastery on up to 9 tiles
  • 2 points for every follower on up to 9 tiles
  • 2 points for each pennant on up to 9 tiles
  • 1 points for each tile with at least one road
  • 1 points for each tile with at least one city

"with at least" so the monastery one delivers the best scoring option. a possible 24 points..

The tower with the meeple may get people to use corn circles to add knights to cities.

It's a random point allocator. I'm not that keen. And it's in the new edition images.
