On Easter in Carcassonne reference that Bunny can be on same tile as fairy is about dragon and bunny on same tile.
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Easter_in_Carcassonne_(1st_edition)#cite_note-14
No mention about faire there

The issue here is that the Easter bunny cannot share the tile with the dragon if the dragon can eat it.

The Easter bunny sharing a tile with the fairy is not an issue. Do you want to stress anything in this regard?

It's ok. But reference is placed to sentence with fairy. So if it's bad placement it (reference) has to be placed to correct rule sentence.

The footnote is in the right place. It clarifies that the original rules read:

Quote
The bunny can be on the same tile as the fairy and the dragon.

But the part in red was removed from WICA because it contradicted the previous sentence in the same paragraph:

Quote
The dragon eats the Easter bunny figure (a dragon can't miss that).

Question: How could the Easter bunny be on the same tile as the dragon if it is eaten? Therefore, the part in red must have been a mistake in the final rules.

Btw Meepledrone, this probably got buried in the conversiation, although it is nothing urgent:
Quote
I noticed an inconstistent useage of "medieval" and "mediaeval" throughout WICA. Both are technically correct, but it may confuse some people.
I would recommend sticking to more commonly used form "medieval", which search would indicate currently has 41 uses, rather than lesser used "mediaeval" with only 9.

Thanks both...

I was keeping an eye on your messages. Nice to see it has been taken care of. ;)

The last one is remaining in Gold Rush:

Marked it for translation to remove last reference.

Hi everyone!

I've been researching history of releases of Carcassonne in Russia and I spotted a couple of mistakes on Wiki about one of the compilations.

https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Variants#Russian_Compilation_2

"Noble towers" is not the right translation of box's name. The right one is "Nobles and towers" (that's obviously a typo, it's called the right way in other places.

Also, that compilation doesn't contain "Count, King & Robber" in it's entirety. Instead, it contains three separate parts of that expansion:
- The Count
- River II
- Heretics and Shrines - Spielbox version with 5 tiles and pentagon symbol

That makes sence as King is included in Compilation 1.
There's the link to the box's rules for proof: https://www.mosigra.ru/image/data/mosigra.product.other/550/047/carc_tower.pdf

Hey Tolstukha286!

Thanks, despite having all the boxes, I didn't spot it yet!
 I'll have a look to update later this week once I'm back home

It can also be interesting to hear what you've found about the Russian releases.
I've managed to collect most of the C1 releases that I'm aware of, but there can always be new things we didn't know off

Well it's good to be useful  :D

I found info on wikiCarcpedia the most complete on the web. The only mistakes I found are what I mentioned above.

Also, there were few recent releases not mentioned in wiki

Carcassonne C3 https://hobbyworld.ru/karkasson-novoe-izdanie

Hi @tolstukha286 !

Welcome to the forum!!!

Thanks for letting us no about this mistakes and the new releases.

Thanks for your kind words, we try to cover as much as possible. ;)

BTW, if you have any suggestions for the wording of the Russian Promos (name of the expansion(s), for example) please let us know. Sometimes the translations we rely on may miss some nuances. I've seen the expansion called some times "We go to Carcassonne" or "Russian Fairy Tales"... I'd like to know what would be the best way to call them beyond the current neutral name used on WICA.

https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Russian_Promos_(1st_edition)

The page includes some clarifications we got from Hobby World and don't know if they are well known to the community.

Thanks in advance!

I've updated the description of the 2nd Russian Compilation with the above information :)

Also, i've added the Russian 2nd edition Kids of Carcassonne, Russian BB6 and several C3 base games to the Collections&Expansions page  ;D

Thanks Meepledrone!

Regarding "Russian promos".

There's a page of the publisher's website https://hobbyworld.ru/news/promo-serija-russkie-skazki-dlja-nastolnoj-igri-karkasson
Its caption reads as "'Russian Fairy Tales' promo-batch" so I think this title can be viewed as the official one.
The article below states it as "4 mini-expansions"

I was surprised to find out from one of the links in comments that the first version of the expansion was on sale as just a "Scoreboard Bag". Only details on the product's page revealed that it also includes "exclusive tiles 'Izbushka' and 'Bogatyr'".

BTW, there's C2 "Scoreboard Bag" on sale - unfotunately, without any tiles. https://hobbyworld.ru/meshok-schetchik-karkasson-2-e-rus-izd

The inscription on the drawstring bag reads as "All roads lead to Carcassonne" and that looks more as a slogan then a title for the expansion.
"We go to Carcassonne" was written on the coasters mentioned in the comments on the page. Those coasters and that slogan has little connection to the expansions.

Ah the bag is available again.
Thanks to @Decar placing a bulk order a few years (!) ago, some people here managed to get one. Nice to see that they have a new batch of them, as I like the look of mine!
