Carcassonne Spain - Podcasts, Twitch and other initiatives
« on: April 30, 2022, 11:27:05 AM »
Dear all!

Carcassonne Spain was founded a few months back. Its members got together after meeting online while playing on BGA during the pandemic. Some of them even participated in the world championship 2021 at Essen.

The organization is sponsoring various initiatives to reach out to Spanish-speaking Carcassonne fans for starters. If you are interested you may join the Carcassonne Spain group on Telegram:

https://t.me/CarcassonneSpain

A Discord server is also available, if you are interested in joining, just send me a PM.

A Carcassonne Spain member -Joaquin- is running a podcast called Meeple Podcast, where he interviews members of the Spanish community and some renown players from other countries such as Melvin Quaresma (Posdcast #4) or Alexey Pegushev (Podcast #9). These two are in English, so some of you may be interested in listening to them. You may find the podcast on Spotify:

Another initiative is a Twitch channel run by Frank, where some interesting games on BGA are analyzed for the enlightment of the community. You can find the channel here:

If you want to know more, please let me know.

@wallaceprime Nice interview!

Are you secretly working on a waterproof Carcassonne to play in the beach, in the swimming pool or even underwater? ;D

I've not played Carcassonne on the beach, but I played on holiday last year in Morar (north-west Scotland) overlooking the beach and the isles of Eigg and Rum. On a surprisingly sunny day, it was the first time I required sunscreen to play Carcassonne!



It was a fantastic location and I had great fun recording this time-lapse video of the sunset

I guess the magnetic version would be OK for Zero Gravity - International Space Station, maybe?

I wouldn't like to be the one blamed for the destruction of the ISS caused by one of the little neodymium magnets getting loose and going where it shouldn't!
Maybe Suckerssonne (which is the renamed Aquassonne) would be a better alternative. Suckerssonne will use small suckers to attach the tiles to any smooth surface such as windows, bathroom tiles, side of the bath etc (although you'd need to forego bubble bath if you wanted to see tiles placed below the water line).

Putting aside the International Space Station (even I have limits  ;) ), I was thinking that the tiles could be a sandwich of: sucker - 3D-printed flat base with boss to hold the sucker - magnetic material - polyester label.
Although I've not tested the labels, I think this approach would be waterproof enough for a bathroom environment if not submerged for long periods.
This would allow 3D-printed meeples with magnets to stick to the tile.
