When it comes to the color: I remember that there is a sticker which you have to remove. The sticker might not be easy to detect. Only after that the real color appears

wow - is it just me or do these Grinch questions get worse from year to year??  :o

I already got a feedback from Ratz65:

The servers of Carcassonne-Forum have been moved in October. The problems might have occured in this context, they are working on it.

@NGC 54 @Meepledrone

I had another request for help yesterday and already wrote to Ratz65 by email.

From what I understand now, it is an even broader problem than I thought. I will write again and make Ratz65 aware of the general problem and this thread.

And also, the secret plan under wraps. Ah yes! Willem should not suspect a thing... Hush! Hush! Keep calm... So many emotions to keep contained and an unexpected climax on Sunday... Plans within plans... Scheming and plotting for months...

For once, I cannot be accused of scheming .....  >:D

Thanks for this jucy write-up, Willem!! +1 merit from me

And congratulations for the "trophy", you most certainly merited it!!!!  :(y)

First of all: welcome to the forum @Andarien and congratulations for your first post !!!  :(y)

I am very sorry for stupid question, especially if it was already asked...
there are no stupid questions!!

But do I put ghosts on an open HAUNTED cemetery when a tile with ghosts enters play?
Haunted cemetaries (as from level 5) do not at all work like normal cemetaries (level 3 and 4).
The only ghosts you have to place is when you draw the tile with the cemetary. At this moment you have to place 1 ghost on each adjoining tile showing ghosts.

But seems like everyone else thinks that normal cemetery rule does not apply on haunted one.
yes, everybody else is correct  ;)

But does it not make it weaker? I feared it mainly because it sped up the ghost infestation so much. Without the basic rule it does not do that. The "haunted cemetery enter into play" ghosts are easy to avoid if you place it somewhere where is no mist. So it just eats the tiles. Which is not the end of the world. Should the last stages not be the hardest?
Exactly, the cemetary eats tiles because in each turn, at the end of each turn, you have to place an additional tile upside down.
This speeds up the game and makes you reach the bottom of the current pile of tiles much earlier - and as soon as you are out of tiles in the current pile of tiles you lost the game!
In addition, the rules concerning upside down tiles prevent features from being completed so you cannot score so many points and meeples can get trapped.
In my personal experience, the haunted cemetary is a real pain (because of the 2 tiles per turn)! So maybe check the checklists to see if there are other rules which you do not apply correctly.
Let us know if you found something!   >:D

And if not: well done with your management of hounted cemetaries!!  :D
