I've got a subscription, so if anyone would rather wait and find out, my English copy will be here soon.

I've quite enjoyed receiving Speilbox over the last year.  They often have very accurate reviews, the time and analysis of games has been excellent, and helped me pick and choose a few games of interest.  I like their interviews, rule variants, and kid's game reviews too.

I know  :D

Random question: Is there any specific reason why we don't see Spielbox expansion for Carcassonne anymore? The last one was Halflings seven years ago and since then any magazine expansions came from SPIEL DOCH!.

This is my question, too. I must admit that I was a bit expecting some Spielbox extras, eve though the cover is actually very nice..

No clue about any businness decisions that this type of collaboration may entail.

I actually was expecting the same as you... A tiny promo that would cellebrate the 20th Anniversary...

Was it due to lack of time or production issues? Do HiG have some other plans?

For me it was a missed opportunity entirely. Imagine the magazine had included a few more 20th Anniversary Expansion tiles (a 4th action as a homage to the Tower) or an official version of The Land Surveyors... It would had been awesome!!!!

Note: Example of homage to the tower: 5 new tiles featuring an arrow symbol with tower and a number. When activated, the tile allows you to capture any meeple emulating a tower with the range given by the number (a tower symbol with a number 2 emulates a tower with 2 floors placed on the symbol tile).

I was pretty sure about a mini expansion after such a long time. Maybe it is a question of rights, but I'm still hoping that they'll include an exclusive mini expansion in the near future. Fingers crossed  :)

That would indeed be awesome! Of course nothing wrong with the current version, but I would like an officially printed physical product.

This only includes a short double page interview with KJW. There's a large image too showing a Carcassonne collection that takes up half a page.

Maybe it's rule of publisher of magazine. It's 20 years old game. They want to get minis for new games. This reason why there was so long no Carcassonne mini. I guess (this if my point of view as part of publishing house years ago).
