Be careful what you wish for...
« on: June 01, 2021, 01:03:19 PM »
One of the great things about Carcassonne Central is the community, and how people from all across the globe all seem to have fallen in love with 45mm square tiles that depict the South of France (Don't mention halflings).

So, while this is off-topic, I thought it would be a fun little game to play.

The game starts by making a wish, and the next person replies granting their wish, but reminding them of the impact of their desires, before making their own wish.
It's a faux pas to forget to make a wish, but someone else can start the thread off again.

For example:

> I wish I did not have to work.

>Granted. But the world is now overrun by an evil synthetic intelligence that perceives all humans as a threat to its existence.  You have to fight to survive.
> I wish ...

So I'll start:

I wish I claimed that cloister

Ok, that sounds interesting!

Let's have a look...

>Granted, however by doing that, you don't have a meeple available to defend your main farm, meaning you end up losing the game when the last tile allows your opponent to join another farmer onto it, making them victorious

I wish I placed the fairy next to my meeple

That's the spirit.  I'll reply to this one but let some others get a chance:

Granted. Unfortunately it was on a Pyramid with all the other players.  No one remembers how the scoring works and the game descends into Chaos while you work it out.

I wish to strike oil in my garden.

>Granted. You stroke the oil in the middle of your garden, but in an ironic twist of fate, the whole world switched to renewable fuel sources the very next day and now you just have an oily mess of a lawn.

I wish I could play lifesize Carcassonne.

Granted, but you became wood in your own game, and lost all control over yourself. You ended up on the scoretracker so didn’t enjoy anything of the game.

I wish I had a printer to print fan expansions on the bland tiles from cundco.

Granted, but you got the order all wrong and you got blank tiles for spin-offs instead. Now you need a bag for you fan-made tiles badly...

I wish blank tiles could be printed on both sides to create expansions with cool mechanics based on reversible two-sided tiles.

Granted but as soon as you finished printing the 144th tile, HiG announced the launch of CarcaCubes 3D!

I wish I lived closer to other Carc-crazed people!

> Granted, but the geographic centre of Carcassonne players is actually in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean so you are now stuck on a boat with only the Travel Edition to keep you entertained.

I wish The Besiegers would finally release in the new art style.

Granted, but like the Winter Edition 2020, it's effectively impossible to get a copy of.

I wish I had gotten into Carcassonne years before I did. Early 2000's would have been a good start date. -  :pink-meeple:

granted, but all your friends only know the game risk or all play fifa 20 and no one is interested in carcassonne and so you put it aside until 2021

Granted, but it seems it will take him a few ours to realize he forgot and kept us hanging. Maybe he ran out of wishes for 2021...  :o

I wish, HiG finally release an expansion using water towers...

Granted, but apparently they used real water and your tiles are ruined.

I whish all expansions would be kept in print and always keep their original price.

Granted, but the never-ending demand and infinite supply that results as a consequence of this cause global deforestation that ultimately destroys the planet, and everyone has to move to a brand new planet constructed entirely out of Carcassonne tiles.

I wish I could always draw whatever tile I needed when playing Carcassonne.
