WOW! €35 or less for Darmstadt is AMAZING!

I've cleaned up nicely on eBay.de also, but one has to have a friend in Germany to collect the packages. Many of the sellers won't ship to USA, and even if they do, international shipping on a per piece case will kill ya. I've actually got a consolidated shipment coming from Germany as we speak.

:pink-meeple:

Well I went to ebay.de and found sellers that only selected shipment to Germany and when I contacted them, they were also willing to ship to Belgium. But probably because our countries are next to each other.

I find it hard to believe that anyone found "Darmstadt" for that price on Ebay (At least with the Carcassonne tiles still with it). Possibly BGG, but not Ebay. I have been watching ebay.com, .de, and .uk for about the last 6 months like a hawk and have not seen one go for less than 100 Euro.

I really wish I wouldve kept it when I had the chance. I only held onto the Catan Wedding Tower as I was sheepily unaware of how awesome Carcassonne was 6 years ago  ;D ;D ;D.

Additionally, I am right there with you Meepledrone regarding Besiegers. I would love to see it in C2!

Well it's because I bought The Plague for 50 + 9 shipping on ebay and stayed in contact with the seller.
He asked me what I was still looking for and I sent my list.
Bought Darmstadt, Tunnels, Japanese Temples and 5 spiel promo tiles from him at good prices.

Btw there was also a darmstadt for 60 euros on ebay.de last week. The one I bought was not the full "Darmstadt spielt 20 years". I only bought the 3 carcassonne tiles.

this was the best price I've seen on any rare expansion

but wow, this recent Kornkreise

Yeah the second one is from poogi_de. He sold some nice stuff last week. I won Die Burg and Winter edition: ginger bread man. Lost some others but still got those ones few days later somewhere else, including f.e. Darmstadt. His Darmstadt went up to 140.

We have most of the mini expansions.   The only ones we ever play with are:
GQ11 (every game)
Siege (regularly - both the 6 tile version and the one from Cult Siege Creativity)
German Castles (regularly)
Halflings (occasionally)
Flyers (occasionally)
Ferries (occasionally)
Mage and Witch (occasionally, but we play with 2 copies to make it worthwhile)
Gold Mines (Rarely)

So to sum up, if you have the old art, get the GQ11 expansion.  Otherwise get the German Castles and wait for the Siege in the new art. 

By the way, I have NEVER seen a completely loose version of the really rare expansions.   Am I the only person who actually plays with the Siege tiles and has an unpunched Plague?  I am not willing to pay "new in shrink" prices for what I am missing, but would love to have a played with Cathars.

I also buy the expansions to play them, so I punch them once I get them ;)
Otherwise it's more collecting than playing, and that's not my intention.

We regularly play with The Plague in our lunchtime work games. We also use most of the other expansions in our annual 10 or 12 scenario campaigns.

Interesting variation. My family mostly has girls, so we've inverted roles. The Witch doubles points and the Mage cuts in half :-) -  :pink-meeple:
