sure I can hold one for you. In 2016 they did - they may have some limites supplies though. I'm not quite sure.

According to the Spiel Doch website, the 2 tiles for Carcassonne can be used together as alternative starting tile.
I don't think there will be any additional rules, just an alternative to the regular starting tile
I do suspect The watermark to be on the tiles, but that will be a wait and see i guess

Please share images of the actual tiles when they arrive. I suspect you are supposed to place the two tiles beside one another so that 'SPIEL' and 'DOCH!' are beside each other. I am really reluctant to buy this expansion. It costs over $15.00 to send to NZ for two tiles, plus a few more if I ever get the Safari spin-off. That's right up there with the Darmstadt and Kathar tiles in expensive, and I rarely play with either of those expansions. This doesn't even come with new rules, which makes it even less appealing, and the text on the tiles is just atrocious. What's next? A special Amazon expansion that includes the Amazon.com logo across all the tiles?

Wow that would be great, the graffiti of carcassonne written in chalk cliffs or mud flats next to the river. Where are the creative amongst us when I need em?

Ask yourself: how big will be your regret when you don't buy it now, realise after a year or two you do need it in your life and pay perhaps double or triple?  8) 8)

It is an argument for the completionists but not one that will work for the players. I have had tunnels, cathers, besiegers, darmstadt, russian, halflings etc. But they didn't get enough usage due to their associated rules or art style and so i cashed them in and probably bought a whole different game with each. These new games (to my collection) do get played.

Carcassonne expansion
German: "Die beiliegenden zwei Plattchen fur Carcassonne konnen zusammen als alternatives Startplattchen verwendet werden."
English: "The enclosed two plates for Carcassonne can be used together as an alternative startplate."

Carcassonne: Safari expansion
German: "Die beiliegenden zwei Plattchen fur Carcassonne - Safari werden einfach untergemischt. Auf jedem sind zwei verschiedene Tierarten zu sehen."
English: The enclosed two plates for Carcassonne - Safari are simply mixed in. Each one shows two different species of animals.""

At least the rules are nice and simple, and I like that there would be two city segments available from the start so that the first player to draw a city cap doesn't automatically get a 4-point bonus. Or at least if they do, there is still a chance for the second player to do the same.

Is that watermark printed on the tile or on the sellophane wrap? If that's on the tile it could be the ugliest and most out of place watermark yet... >:(

The "watermark" is on the tiles themselves. One has "SPIEL" the other has "DOCH!" with some additional scribbling in a font too small for me to read now... (*sigh*... I'm getting old I guess.) In addition, there is also a more actual watermark on the tiles showing "SD".
