Suggestion:COVID-19 for Spiel 20 Tile
« on: March 20, 2020, 04:27:31 PM »
As every year, in this 2020 we have a sadly topical event such as COVID-19. Given this occurrence, doctors and researchers try to cure infected people and find a vaccine for it.

As the Spiel tile is published every year, it would be a good idea to ask to HiG, if its illustration could be referred to the most representative theme of the year. And for all this, I want to propose as a fan initiative if you would like to ask HiG that the Spiel 20 tile in any way deals about doctors or researchers exercising their activity in the context of Carcassonne, all as a tribute to their effort and so that we all remember from this game what most unites us.

Furthermore, if the tile finally had a symbolic price of, for example, one euro as a donation to fight against the virus, it would be a solidarity initiative.

What do you think?

Why should wait till Spiel?
HiG could publish now a special tile and sell it online for 5€ and use the money for support

A tile featuring a mediaeval abode of a medicant or humorist from middle ages might be appropriate.

It's a great idea, MeepleFan!

However, my understanding with Spiel Promo tiles is that thy are produced in batches of 4 years although they are released one per year. This would mean that we have seen the Spiel 2018 and 2019 tiles already, but Spiel 2020 and 2021 are already produced but kept in HiG's vaults.

That's why the Spiel 2014-2017 run show dark cities even when HiG were releasing base games and expansions with cities in lighter colors.

@Murphy013 It could be the moment to re-release The Plague in C2 with updated rules, right?

Meepledrone, you beat me to it!
I think the Plague in C2 now would be a great stunt from HiG  ;D

All jokes aside, it would be nice is HiG could refer to such a global event with a commemorative tile, maybe not even the Spiel 20 tile but stand alone?

Hi Meepledrone,

So far I know is everything now on HiG. After the rules were finalised CarcF sent everything to HiG. If I get an update I will send a message here.

The problem I see is the same one that Meepledrone comments: if the Spiel 20 and Spiel 21 tiles are already printed, little could be done except release a different commemorative tile.  :(

However, it would be a good idea if it could be done, that from now on, the Spiel tile of each year had a drawing on the most representative theme of each year, instead of something merely random. In this way it would happen a bit like with the postage stamp collections, that seeing them the main events of each year are known.

That sums it up nicely! I think this COVID-19 tile is a great idea, and having a commemorative one each year  :(y)
I need more Carcassonne!

Hi all,

I wrote yesterday Moritz and told him about our idea for a special tile to the current situation. It is a BIG BIG thank you to all which keep the daily living up, like doctors, nurses, cashiers, workers in supply chain and many more. I suggested a price of €5.00, so we can support HiG and printers too.
I will keep you in the loop.

Thank you Murphy013.

Casually, today I have also sent an email to Cundco with the same request. Hopefully with so much request they can make the wish come true.

Hi all!

I've news from Cundco. They answered my email with the following message:
 
Thank you very much for mailing your ideas to us! We were glad to hear them and we have discussed them in our meeting.
Yet we will have more in focus some other ideas which will come in more handy for you and us (since production is a tricky topic due to Covid-19). Keep your eyes open. There will be coming something in the next week(s) :)

Best regards
