General / Carcassonne Chinese Edition

I haven't found this topic to be discussed in the forum, hence my question if this version is an official one:

I'm not sure, but I think there is no official publisher in China ???

Thx ooh_jim - ordered them  :)

Absolutely. With regards to the front cover of the packaging I thought that they have the 'J' at the tile backs - similar to the Russian edition. But it makes sense that they want to be fully compatible instead of making their own edition.

I see, thank you for your explanation! I had a look at the website of mobius and found a photo of it: - thanks to google translator  ;)

Anyways it is really nice that you have the Japanese edition of it  :)

Thanks for sharing your experiences - great trip and nice games that you've picked  :(y)

Do I understand you correctly that there was a Japanese edition in the new design that contained a few extra tiles like the ones you've mentioned?  I assume that the version you've picked doesn't contain these extra tiles - otherwise it would be mentioned on the cover I think. I'm curious how these special expansion looks like  ::) Might be a follow up to the Japanese temples and monestaries released via HIG. Very interesting!

I contacted MichMedia, not had a reply yet.

Thank you Decar! I've switched my fav colour of meeples that I use to play with to white, but didn't bought a white/clear phantom back in the days  :white-meeple:

Yes, they are more or less different in every edition. Here is fantastic overview by Heiko69 how the meeple look like in every edition:

If Devir distributed it, then it is just as official as any of the other company exclusive expansions regardless of Klaus Jürgen-Wrede or Hans im Glück. It doesn't matter if it is a sticker or a real tile. I think the best option to finally put this matter to rest is for somebody to contact Devir about the matter.

If Devir was authorised to publish it, I agree with Yashin-n. Really makes sense to contact Devir in this case.

I think it would be helpful to change the description text and inform players that it was given out as limited stickers and not as tiles and that the stickers were signed. Beside the original and signed stickers, copies do exist, that were signed as well. Hence it is difficult to say which ones are really original if you don't know the background of a sticker. But it should be clear, that nearly all tiles that are offered nowadays are not original. Maybe La Porxada will loose attraction if people know that it only was released as a sticker  :P

In my opinion expansions like Fortune Teller are authorised expansions - former fan expansions authorised by the publisher. I think labelling La Porxada as an authorised expansion won't stop people of buying it, simply because it is "authorised".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it was designed by Oriol and Klaus just accepted it or was it a coproduction? BGG states Oriol as the designer, but in the description both are mentioned. If it was designed by Oriol it should be a fan expansion.

If the publisher has not authorised it, it is unofficial. It is tricky, but in my eyes it is an unofficial fan expansion just accepted by the author  ;) I'm not sure, but I think the publisher owns all rights , hence the author can't authorise it, just accept or tolerate it.

Thank you Jéré and +1 merit for your big support  :(y)  :yellow-meeple:

If a city or road is unoccupied you don't receive any points. Only if you own the city or street you'll receive the points by completing it. This is how we used to play it.
