I think we already established that Carcassonne was set some time after 1928 because Plymouth is a city on the map expansion.

Even more awkward!

We have confirmation that UV spot is applied to 20th anniversary features. The river, Marco polo, the mammoths, mini expansion symbols etc.
Well to be honest we already knew that for over a month, or was it two?

I can't remember which HiG game Father Christmas is from. I hope it's not Santa Cruz

I knew there was talk of bringing back the aurochs (large prehistoric bovines) to parts of Europe. But, this right here is even better!

I want to know what the Mammoths are walking towards. Looks like a sandwich someone left in the field, that's got to be worth a couple of points.

Not sure if this is Bruges?

And here's Marco Polo, I didn't think Carcassonne was on the Silk Road ran through the South of France either

Looks like the Viking reenactment society does have a regular get together though

I think this special edition is an opportunity to give a nod to other HiG flagship titles.  ;)
But... I still wonder how they will do the nod to Railroads ?  :o

That’s exactly what is going on.

I noticed the mammoths and wondered if the new expansion was something involving Time Travel where they merge "Carcassonne" with "Hunter's and Gatherers".

That is an example of the Easter eggs. Some of them serve as a homage to other HiG games.

The new expansion in the Jubilee edition only triggers one out of thre possible actions:
- Additional turns
- Adding a meeple next to another (as in crop circles) but no feature limitation
- Magic portals

So no cross-over with other games for the time being.
