The pest is here! :D
Good surprise: it came with the Spielbox magasine, it wasn't specified when I ordered it :)

That is a great surprise!

Two packages arrived today. The first was from Linksux; thanks to him and Oldbonz!

The second was from MeepleSource. I was hoping to use their sample sets as map meeples, but almost every colour is just too different from the official meeples.

Those bonus winter tiles look really nice! Hope you have a good game with them soon Scott!
And yeah, the meeple look all to have a slightly different shade from the "originals". Perhaps done on purpose my Meeplesource to not be told off by someone  C:-)

They look chunky! I hope they're as good to play with as they look!

Although the frame was slightly bent in a few places, the tiles survived the trip!

They are as heavy and deadly as cannonballs... You can use them to mark sunken placeholders on tiles for future placements...  >:D

Well done! I dread to think what you had to do to find it.

I've always appreciated the idea behind this.  We've got a load of mis-printed score tiles.... let's get KJW to doodle on some paper-tape, stick them on the board, and sign each of them.  At least the proceeds went to a good charity.

PS: I do worry someone of low-moral fibre will use a lovely image like this and replicate it for ebay.

Beautiful piece! :)

My Carcassonne collection is complete except for this points counter...

Of course congratulations on this trade!

The story behind them i find more interesting than the scoreboard itself, but it is a fun entry into the world of Carcassonne  ;D
Congrats on finding one, and hopefully it didn't costs you an arm and/or leg  ;)

That list would be really long...however, I have every C1, C2, and C3 expansion at least once (well, except Santa's point counter...).

Also of course some interesting releases including Big boxes.

-Yes I agree there is still more to collect, it just depends on your goal... >:D...someone has a few boxes and some the whole museum! Of course I'm rooting for you and I admire your enthusiasm and collection! ;)
