Great write up of the event! Thanks for sharing!

News and Events / New releases announced for Essen onwards

At Essen, a few new things will be released.

Has anyone ever gotten the Chinese ripoff version of the Catapult and other expansions all in one box. The ads are so bad on Ali-Express and the prices don't seem worth the risk for something likely unexpandable, but the one thing I noticed in the reviews of the base game is that they show C1 in all the pictures, but the reviews show people getting C2 or newer. It boggles the mind what one might receive given this. Would the expansion box be all C1. Mix of C1 and C2. OR ALL C2 which means C2 catapults. :o Catapults is a hard sell at any price and its a high price since it may never get reissued.

The AliExpress knock offs are C1 for the expansions, and can be both C1 or C2 for the base game
Quality is terrible as you can expect and it's definitely better to be patient and try and find stuff second hand and get the real releases

Now I just need to wait until I can mark that as "have"
So exciting!

Official Rules / Re: The Wonders of Humanity – Rules
« on: September 10, 2023, 07:52:54 AM »
Quite a few of the questions can be resolved with this quote from the rules:
This expansion was developed for the CARCASSONNE - base game, therefore the basic rules stay the same!
You can play The Wonders of humanity in combination with other expansions but there won't be any official rules.

So the WICA could make assumptions of how these kind of interactions work, but it won't be clarified by HiG, and WICA can only guide as good as previous rules have been. I.e., if a certain situation has been ruled a certain way in a previous expansion, it can be assumed the same logic can be used.

Quite a few arrivals, but let's at least share a picture of the most recent one, namely from today!

I really hope you get better soon! Would be great to see you at Essen, but of course health always goes first

@The-Edge and @Den Ozzy , I believe you're looking to come on the Saturday as well?

General / Essen 2023; who's coming?
« on: August 29, 2023, 01:18:59 PM »
We're just over a month away from Spiel in Essen!
So time to see who we can expect to see, and perhaps plan a meet up!

Do note; the Carcassonne world championships will be held on the Saturday this year, and will not be at the Spiel Messe centre, but at the nearby town of Herne. There will be shuttle buses from Spiel to Herne a few times throughout the day.

Who will be coming?



You can go to the Messe first, and then take a shuttle bus to Herne. Decar, Meepledrone and myself will most likely not be at the Messe at all on the Saturday, but spend the day in Herne.
Willem (will be at the WC's)
@Decar (will be at the WC's)
@Meepledrone (will be at the WC's)
@totor66 ?

This scoretrack was only included in the first editions in German, Dutch and English. It can be a rare find, and often go for a relatively high price (compared to a "normal" base game).
This is indeed a Dutch version, which are usually a bit easier to find.

Good find!

@Meepledrone , shall we create a page on the wica about the scoretracks throughout the years? I've got scans of all different ones, so we can use those

I'm just happy they finally pay tribute to me, by releasing a tile in the shape of a W!  ;)
Don't know who the other tiles are for, but clearly the Circus Maximus tile is a tribute to me  8)

HiG have now announced the new mini expansion for Carcassonne; Wonders of the World

Wonders of the World will see several new tiles in new shapes, taking up space of 5 regular tiles!
Depicting several wonders from around the world, such as Stonehenge and the Notre Dame
Rules are unknown for now.
Will be released in Essen, and visitors to the event next month in Carcassonne will have a sneak peek!

Me and my partner went to Carcassonne in March last year, you can see my little report/blog here:

The old city is of course one to recommend. Try and find the models for the C1 and C2 box arts for example! The castle tour is good to do as well. They sell Carcassonne in several shops there as well, if you want a nice souvenir!

There isn't really something always to do or on display linked to the game, although in september there will be an event there, similar to last year.

But I loved walking in and around the old city!
