Many of you know earlier this year Anne Pätzke gave an interview at the BoardGameBeaver.
We had an insight into the difficult work of producing new artwork for one of the most love boardgames of all time!

I've recently been in correspondence with Anne and she's been so incredibly kind!
She agreed to sign some tiles I sent her, but she also included some of her own, to give away as prizes over the next few months.
It's an important year for Carcassonne Central as we are reaching several important milestones!

I received a small package yesterday from Anne and she was also kind enough to share 'An Instant Postcard' she sent me for our correspondence:


I originally sent 12 tiles to be signed, but Anne included another 13.  In fact I've almost lost count!
So now I've got the hard task of distributing them amount out to Carcassonne fans across our community  :(y)

I'll give you a sneak peak of some of the tiles now, over the next few days/weeks I'll be sharing everything that was in my package, and hopefully finding them new homes:

Over the next few months there will be numerous ways to win/earn/select one of these tiles.  The first is tomorrow afternoon!

I've been given strict instructions to only share these tiles with fans of her work.
I have been explicitly told to not share these tiles with individuals who may remove the original artwork in order to use the tiles from fan-expansions.
Yes... someone actually did that. But let's focus on the positive things!

Be warned - any comments which I consider rude or nonconstructive on this thread or in relation this this thread will result in minimum 2-week ban from Carcassonne Central.  So my advice would be to hold your tongues and allow the fans of Anne Pätzke work compete in peace!

So now it's bed time for me, but just a warning for everyone!  There will be a contest tomorrow afternoon, which will start at noon-BST (UK).
Winners will be first to respond with the correct answer/answers, so you may want to subscribe to this thread now for details.

Definitely interested. Most of my Carcassonne Tiles are New Art and I think she does a fantastic job.

Our First Contest:

Penguin On The Road

When I was a child, I used to have a wooden block puzzle, which I think was from Japan.
A few weeks ago my parents popped over on a visit and left it with me.
There's a certain Carcassonne-esque quality about it, and it must be at least 25 years old now, if not 30.
I was going to share it with you, but I thought...might as well make it a game!

It's called 'Penguin in the Road', here's the first tile:



It's funny because the Penguin is clearly on a surf-board, not a road.  Perhaps it was meant to be 'Penguin on the Board', who knows.

Another fun tile was this one:



Here the Penguin has fallen off his board and 'SOS' (Save Our Souls) is written above its head.

To solve the puzzle one must construct a continuous road, using all the pieces from 'Start' to 'End', leaving no gaps. And make sure all the pieces fit onto the 5x6 grid.

Here are all the tiles jumbled up together on the puzzle-board:



If you need a bigger picture you can download it here.

To Enter:
To enter the contest I'll need two pictures from you: 1)Your valid completed solution and 2)A picture of you solving the puzzle

DON'T POST YOUR ANSWERS HERE - send me a PM with your 2 images.

I believe there is only one solution, kudos to anyone who finds 2!

(Note: you may also notice the occurrence of a carrot, I believe the original piece was missing and we acquired a replacement block)
