Has anyone who owns this latest expansion played it with the tiles from the old RGG base/expansion tiles? Is the feel, size and/or look of the H&S tiles notably different from the originals?

I am considering getting this at some point but wouldn't want a set if it's obviously going to stick out like a sore thumb.

Why would it? It is still produced by HiG, just has a different partner.

Is it? I didn't realise that... that's great to know.

Yes.

So while I don't have it either, it should be no different than any variations already in the series. The size and feel should be the same but colors have always been slightly off depending on printing and expansion.

We have Big Box 3 (RGG), Graf, Konig, und Consorten (HiG), and Hills and Sheep (Z-Man) and haven't noticed any difference (except, perhaps, a varied brightness in the green of the grass, or drab color of the cities, but this doesn't bother us).

It'll likely only be noticably different if you have the RGG run that was made in China.

Fortunately, Jay immediately realized that was a mistake (due to the massively obvious physical difference), and didn't do it again (for Carcassonne, at least).

I have an old RGG Carc (4-point farming FTW!) and have had no issue mixing it with any expansion, including H&S.
