Now that Z-Man has taken over Carcassonne from Rio Grande, it would be nice if they thought about publishing this set.

Two out of three of these expansions (Corn Circles 1 and Tunnels) are out of production and can only be obtained for silly prices on ebay.

I'm sure there would be a lot of interest if this set was published.

As I understand it, Z-Man don't have the rights to either the Tunnels or the Plague.

They were published by Spielbox magazine, and Z-Man's agreement was only with Hans im Gl├╝ck to publish their stuff. Rio Grande had a separate agreement with the publishers of Spielbox, but Z-Man don't.

There was some talk of them including the Corn Circles in a new expansion box (with other hard-to-find bits and pieces), but I can't remember where I read that or how definite it was. Sorry!

Thanks for the update Mark... I guess my thoughts were more of a hope than any belief that there might be any real chance of them happening!

It looks as though The Plague/ Die Pest is still available with the Spielbox 2010/6 (English) magazine from the Nostheide shop for 6 euros:

Thanks Hept86. Luckily already I have the plague expansion, it's the other two expansions I'm missing and which are hard to get hold of.

For info, The Windrose expansion is also being issued by spielbox in this month's magazine... Comes out in next couple of weeks. I've got my order in for that one already cool

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Pulling a huge move like HiG, a Spielbox deal seems almost an after-thought, given how many HiG expansions they publish. I do hope they make a deal, as this Carc expansion has been high up on my wishlist ever since it was announced, and I was very sad to see it canceled.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Played Carc for the first time in a while tonight and thought I'd check on this... Sounds like things are going as I feared. Unfortunate but hopefully we'll see these expansions released here somehow at some point.
