MeepleSource has replacement wooden tokens for the fruits, if you’re so inclined.

Mega haul of custom-printed stuff from China today!



Set of 12 colour-coordinated zipper pouches for meeple storage in my C2 collection. (You’ll be seeing these again soon!)

Tile draw bags for the Star Wars spin-off and Over Hill & Dale which I designed years ago but never got around to ordering.

Tile and watering hole draw bags for Carcassonne Safari which I designed recently.

Mini mousepad score track for Carcassonne für 2, which hasn’t arrived yet. It came as a regular-sized mousepad with white edges and I trimmed it down with scissors.

I've split this topic to: Where did you get that scoreboard‽

A surprise visit from the postwoman on this holiday Monday, with Carcassonne for 2 from Germany with many thanks to @OneEyedOwl for helping to facilitate the transaction.



Let's crack this open and see what it looks like on the inside!



In a word: chaotic, but plenty of room for things to be added!



Rounding out the C2 travel edition, we have a copy of Carcassonne: Demo Spiel sent to me by @Kettlefish many years ago, a full set of mini meeples in the six official C2 colours ( :red-meeple: :yellow-meeple: :green-meeple: :blue-meeple: :black1-meeple: :pink-meeple: ) from PrintPlayGames, and a custom-printed C2 mini score track courtesy of @Meepledrone and Artscow.



I decided to tame the chaos of the tiles by throwing them into my C1 draw bag from Traders & Builders. It feels a bit too large for the number of tiles, so I might look into replacing it with something smaller from Artscow in the future. After this last photo was token, the score track was moved to the bottom of the tin. The original sets of meeples went into the Demo Spiel box and have been put into storage, along with the German rulebook.

Nice! What about a tuckbox for the 35mm tiles?

I briefly considered that, but there are a lot of tiles, and I like to draw from a bag anyway.

Postman was here!

For some reason I always expect to receive massive big boxes full of Carcassonne, but as I then order lots of small stuff, it's pack quite tight  ;D
But still, happy with this cundco order


I really like the new mini boxes from cundco, with quite nice designs!


And the new bags!

That is absolutely right, not only proven by a double postman visit today!

First, my local postman stopped by to bring this:

The Falcon expansion for The Castle, as made by Print&Play games in the US. I've given the gate pieces a try, which seem to fit ok, some tighter than others, but I'm sure it will work fine in a game. Will need to play this one soon!

And then not long after, another postman dropped this box at my doorstep:


I've known of this one for a while, but never saw it for sale anywhere. So I messaged a random person on BGG who had it, asking them if they would be open to 'donate' it to the museum, and they agreed! Very quick delivery from Finland, and here it is!

Intrigued by this nugget.
... as made by Print&Play games in the US ...
Can I ask about your experience with them, please?
1) What are their rules regarding printing fan expansions and official print and play items?
2) Is their 1.75" square token stock (44.5mm if my math is correct) close enough to Carc tile size, or did you need to order a custom size?
This could be fun!

I'm afraid i might not be able to answer your questions
I was pointed in the direction of Print&Play on our discord, as they had printed this PnP expansion from ages ago.
Someone on BGG got them to print many copies, which have then been sold by them on request.
Some of the updates on this can be found here

Some good comparison pictures can also be found on BGG, mainly here

When i contacted them, Print&Play still had some copies in stock, so it was very easy to get a copy.
Shipping was quite expensive, but Maiday and i ordered together, which brought those down every so slightly

1) Not sure, but Falcon was released by the designer so it is legal to print.
2) All of the components are slightly different (thinner tiles, meeple colours not perfect match) but close enough. I’m sure that they did their best.
