I had been looking for a place to purchase "Die Katharer" expansion to Carcassonne and I came across a link to the official place that has the exclusive for the expansion.
http://spielbox.de/indxtemp.html?/sbmain/sbaktcarca.htm
Click on "English Version" to see the info in english.

It mentions what you get, basically its a special edition of their magazine with a bunch of articles in it, some translated into English, and the actual 4 tiles of the expansion are inside, along with the English rules.

If you click on "Order Form" you can see that they have it for 5 euros each plus shipping. The shipping for 1 copy to USA (and any "overseas" country) was 3 euros. You can get up to 3 copies for a total of 5 euros shipping to USA. If you are lucky enough to live in Germany, shipping is only 1 euro. Shipping to the rest of europe is only 2 euros (I think that includes UK).
It has an address to send a money order to if you go that route.

I used paypal to pay, and it lets you pay in euros, the total for me came out to just under $10 USD, something like $9.80
It was a little difficult to figure out what email address I was supposed to send the paypal funds to, but it ended up being the one linked on that page under "Drop us a Line"
Note that they dont have an online credit card system setup, so you have to either mail them the funds, or use paypal (or a bank transfer).

I ordered my expansion on March 8th, and I just received it today, March 14th. Thats about 5 business days from time of order to when I held it in my hand, very fast for just normal oveseas mail.

All in all I had a good experiance ordering it from the official source, and it was much less than I had been lead to belive from reading other posts here from people who had purchased it on ebay and elsewhere.

I figured I'd post my experiance to help others who may be looking for the expansion and dont want to get charged an arm and a leg.

Thank you. I knew I had come across that site earlier, but never could get back to the right page.

Thanks for that! I was starting to panic... blush

Edit: With 2 EUR shipping to the UK it worked out at £4.99 - very reasonable!

Thank you very much for posting this.... I've sent the request and am ready to order. Time to slice city values in half... almost as cut-throat as towers.

They were sold out (that link not working anymore), but I emailed the contact person, and she said they had found a few. So I sent them my eight Euros. I can't wait!
