That's all about!!  :(y)  ;)

I see what you are saying but No one was advertising this.  The original poster of this and various other similar things over the years is drawing our attention to something Carcassonne related in case us fans are interested.  It would be different if the seller comes on here selling something illegal.

Ultimately I strongly believe consumers owe nothing to commercial sellers - they have created a product we like And we have given them our money.  It is clear that retailers/manufacturers simply want to make money and that is fine.  But I don't think we fans should be policing very small time sellers.  If hig wants to stop them selling then they will.

When they published that the "exclusive" edition was already available, I sent an email to HiG to ask if the content was exclusive or a normal basic game. And they replied me that normal. The price was high due to the labor for the box. They tried to reduce it as much as possible but could not lower it further. It is sad that for example Catan has an exclusive version of its components much more attractive and better for a lot less money. For me, money is not a problem, I could buy it, but evaluating the exclusivity it offers and what it really is, I can order something similar in a traditional bookbinder shop for a lot less money, even the board for points. I still really expect an exclusive edition of design tiles and meeples from HiG. Maybe for the 20th anniversary? Who knows...

I guess if someone was to buy it, he already did, anyway, here is some photos of the piece I have received recently. It is all about looks, so will not comment much. If you have questions, fire away. I just have to tell you that opening is really awkward.

With that mentality you will lose many things in life. As a collector of Carcassonne, I am interested in everything. I've been looking for one entirely of wood for some time. If HyG does not do it or someone else I would commission it to a carpentry shop to do it to me. What this person does can be done by anyone in this forum if you go to a specialized carpentry shop and you entrust it. Or if someone makes a magnetic carcassonne or we order it from a specialized store or we when go to a printer for our modified fake tiles using images that are copyrighted. Just because there is money is illegal? Sure? At the ethical level, everything would be illegal, let's not be hypocrites. Then we are all illegal or what? Open a little the mind that we are in the 21st century.

but HiG are choosing their battles, this shop doesn't have a CnD in place.  HiG is a small company itself.  I'd also argue that we did X because another person was doing X and you didn't or haven't tried to stop them could be grounds for a defence, assuming they could show HiG was aware of it.  I don't know any examples of this though.
Exactly! :(y)
In my view it is unacceptably  to SELL such things without the Copyright agreement with HiG. Crafter could make the game for himself, he might present it to somebody, but not sell. The good example of such crafting is giant tiles-coasters, there was no problem for crafter to take the permission from HiG and sell the goods without any questions.
And it is not good to advertise illegal "Carcassonne" games on Carcassonne phorum. I'd delete the link and the photo from this topic.

hahahahha true!  :'(

That's why I say. Surely all of us already have it here. No?

Try saying this to the people who will pay a fortune for 10+ year old expansions on eBay!

Exactly!  ;)

But Decar- we are not talking about some mega game giants trying to profit from HIG's intellectual property, we are talking about an Etsy crafter.  Yes the law is the same for all.  But choose your battles.  These are a nice thing.  I won't buy them - not for legal reasons but because they are not THAT nice and I can't afford something like this.

All the reason.  ;)

I totally understand where you are coming from Dan, but on that basis, artists doing paintings of comic book characters or tattoos are also a no go area.  And what about jewellery, badges, box inserts for storage? Clothing? 

Someone taking someone else's intellectual property and selling it in the same format as the original is absolutely not ok, but using it for inspiration, providing something to enhance it, or changing it to make some cash and also promoting the original at the same time is surely ok.

That expansion is already years old.

Hi all,

At the moment there is a special offer for gingerbread. Only for a limited time.

I doubt that it is legal all the accessories that are made with the logo or name of carcassonne. Including new expansions using illustrations that are copyright. Come on!!  :))

I doubt that it is legal to make such copies of Carcassonne without agreement with HiG.

I have found in Etsy a user that makes the basic game in wood along with the expansion of river I. It is made entirely in wood and laser engraved illustrations. Even the reverse side of the tiles. I have been looking at pictures and I find them wonderful. You have the option to varnish them later if you do not want them to have that matte tone. But without varnishing they also seem very cool to me. I would like to know if someone already has it or what you think. I'm going to place an order soon. Also on the other hand they sell a wooden box with the marker engraved on the back of the box. Surely it's where I keep the tiles once I have them. I give you some pictures to give you an idea.

Here's the link of the shop:

No. The rules in old style font but the rest is a normal Carcassonne.
Very nice! Any special exclusives inside? O:-)

My problem principally is with the colors.
Haven't like the thought of it, but find that the colours are not that bad. Still prefer old edition, but new edition is for my part nothing wrong with

After HiG decided to reprint the game completely with its expansions with a horrible new design, as a fan of the old art of my sweet Döris I need to say it: The new edition SUCKS. Especially for the colors. The fields seem made of liters and liters of flubber. I am alone? Or are there more like me who reject the new Carcassonne?
