It looks like Carcassonne has it a new low price on Amazon as it is now available for 19.95 for the new edition. I'm strongly debating picking this game up at this price.

What are the differences between the two editions? Is it worth it if you have an earlier edition?

The new edition contains "Abbot" meeples that work like monks on cloisters and also on flowerbeds in the new artwork. Plus, the Abbot meeple can be picked up before completing the feature and you just get the points for what you'd completed up to that point.

Is this worth a buy if the only Carcassonne I've got is Hunters/Gatherers (2002 Rio Grande version)?

The tile art is different, too

IMO Hunter/Gatherers is a much better game, so I wouldn't.

H&G IS a better version, but thematically, building the castle walls makes so much more sense than building the plains.

Now dead at Amazon, up to $26.47 through another seller. Still good at Wally World though.
