    I've had this game for 10 years, no expansions, still hasn't got old.

    particularly good at two player.

      Only ever played on the phone/tablet, but for close to a decade, so looking forward to having the real deal

        don't like playing the app versions of games like this, always feels like the random number generator is cheating.

        pulling a cloister off the top of someone else's stack is one of the all-time great feelings in boardgaming lol.

        along with linking up your third farmer to the mega-farm to steal all the points on the second to last turn of the game.

      You should give the inns and cathedrals expansion a shot :)

    It’s $29 delivered if you use the 10APP voucher via the Amazon app ($10 off).

      I got the error "The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase".

      •  

        Weird, it worked fine for me. Have you used the app promo previously?

        Edit: Looking at my order again, I’ve actually been charged $34.99. The promo took off $10, but the shipping was no longer free.

        •  

          Probably not. I found this which stated that the code is for Amazon Prime members using the app for the first time and supposedly expired at the end of 2020. I don't have prime so it might explain why I can't use the code.

    Let's share this castle ok….ok

    Puts big man last min

    Friendship ruined :P

    •  

      I have no idea what a "big man" is but it is definitely not in this game.

        It's in the inns and cathedrals expansion.

          Correct - it is definitely in this game. You haven't played it till you've played it with expansions!

    $34.50 on ebay here and $34.95 here, both have free delivery

      Those are probably counterfeits. I think the only trustworthy sellers on eBay are Study of Games (Gameology), Frontline Hobbies, and Gamesmen. Maybe Gamerholic, but their service is inconsistent.

        Not sure if these are also counterfeits. There are 3 recent reviews i.e in the past few months from verified purchasers complaining about bad quality tiles e.g. "Disappointed to see that the art on the tiles don't line up. Pretty lame for game that's all about matching tiles side by side" Also have pictures included.

        If they're genuine I wouldn't expect that to be an issue.

          I can confirm this. I bought the Amazon one a few weeks ago ($39, delivered the next day), and the art not lining up is off-putting. I played my friend’s Toyworld copy and it all lined up perfectly, so I’m reasonable sure mine is a fake copy.

            @Jake T: Let Amazon know and you should get your money back and probably get to keep the game.

            •  

              @Miss B: That’s interesting. I haven’t gone for the refund yet because we’re still enjoying playing it every day :p but that’s a good tip!

          Agree. I don't trust Amazon for genuine board games or card games. Probably safer to pay a bit more and get the real thing: https://www.gameology.com.au/products/carcassonne-2-0-new-ed...

            @trippy: My Bears vs Babies from Amazon wasn't legit unfortunately. From memory it was a third party through Amazon though.

        You really don't know that

    •  

      So I ordered one of these, and yeah definitely fake. That said, it wasn't bad… some colour mismatch and the occasional tile didn't line up - still absolutely playable though. Seller offered a full refund.

      •  

        Was that through amazon chat and did they ask you to return the game by post?

        •  

          Sorry, I ordered one of the eBay ones…

  •  

    delivery expected 1-2 months..doh

    missed out :(

    Has anyone received this and had misaligned tiles?

    •  

      Mine should be arriving tomorrow, I'll let you know. Has yours had misaligned tiles?

      • +2 votes

        Yes, the tiles were punched out with an offset from the centre. Maybe a 50mm gap between the centres of two tiles side-by-side.

        I used the Amazon online chat to get a refund.

        •  

          Would you pls have a pic? I received my copy and don’t see the issue.

          •  

            @Rosace: My roads aren't in the centre of each tile. Some of the city walls also don't match the corners.

        •  

          This sort of issues should have been picked up in manufacturing. Mines arriving Mid May. Hope it isnt afflicted with the same issue

    Mine delivered today - had a quick look at the tiles and they all seem to be central so should have no alignment issues. Hopefully will get the family together on the weekend for a game
