I think it's unlikely that Cundco will have English copies, but they did have limited English editions of Paleo at Essen last year, so it could happen!
In a sense, the language doesn't really matter, I suppose. I mean, the box appears to be almost entirely language-free and I hardly need the rules except for the new mini expansion.

I tend to agree, it looks like HiG will publish rules as pdf on their website. The first half are there already. Hopefully the expansion will too.  I would say that given the special printing and description added to the rulebook, it might be one for native language.

And another review/live playthrough of the game here:



Note, it's in Dutch, however they don't really say much news for us hahaha.
They review the game for the casual user, and comment that it is a very nice version to have for any fan of Carcassonne

Same here! They have a countdown timer on their website, which counts down until tomorrow, so looks like it was actually (fairly) accurate!

I got a DHL tracking code, so within a few days that one will be delivered! (At my parents where I can't get it yet, but ah well  ;D )

I was holding out hope for an English edition but complaints and then the Z-Man announcement a month or so ago finally convinced me to buy a French version, and I don't regret it at all. This game is BEAUTIFUL! My copy did have a minor scratch on the front of the box, which is unfortunate, but the contents are perfect and this was one of my least regretted games in a couple years, to be honest (Kickstarter is always more about the hype than the results, I've come to find).

Until now, I have been mixing my old art and new art tiles, but now that I have my own new art base game, I've finally separated them out. The 20th Anniversary box fits all of my new art stuff including Under the Big Top, all the Cundco promo expansions, a sixth set of meeples, and the Spiel and Spielbox tiles. It's pretty much perfect until another large expansion comes out. Meanwhile, my old art tiles are now snugly stored in a tin that's mostly out of sight, ready to be used if I'm feeling like playing older expansions.

Hi there, I am struggling to find out what is going on with this release.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could briefly shed some light on it.
The company I pre-ordered from (Tritex in the UK) have no idea and their supplier seems to have no idea either. Part of me is tempted to cancel the order as I already have plenty of Carcassonne and who needs more, right? At least I have the sophisticated simplicity of C1 to soothe my nerves...

I have contacted Zman Games about it directly a few weeks ago.
I asked if they could give any update on the expected release date of Carc20 in english.

They told me they had some (and i quote) "unexpected production delays due to the pandemic".
Currently, they are hoping/aiming to have Carc20 out in September, but did also say they have minimal updates on it's status.

It's not saying much in terms of knowing something certain, but i don't expect anything before September, based on Zman's response

While I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're not trying to be obnoxious, I will say that the 16th Anniversary event that members of this forum was the most unique evening. We were lucky enough to hear Klaus Jurgen Wrede play a 6 piece piano performance of songs and melodies that were significant to his life. it was an incredible performance.  I was lucky enough to meet Bernd Brunnhofer and his lovely wife. I also got to experience world class Kartoffelklöße. And wrap up the evening playing prototype card games with Cristoph Tisch and Carcassonne fans from all over the world.  I suspect a 20th anniversary gathering would be even more remarkable!

Any updates on when the party might be scheduled for? I'm currently schedule to give a lecture at legal conference in France in July and it'd be great to stack events together
