I bought this at Essen. My wife loves the Carcassonne series, so we have played it a lot as a 2p.

There is one oddity.

There are no 50/100 point chips, just the score board that goes around to 50 and starts over. Not a big deal, as this is the same as Hunters & Gatherers. However in that game you get tiles with 50/100 points on either side to mark. This feels like a problem here. We routinely get over 100 points, so I have pulled a few generic cubes to use as "Supply Crates" to place in the 0 spot to mark 50 points.

Otherwise a lovely game.

We never , ever , play Carcassonne with those tiles.

The meeple just Goes flat after 50 and sideways after 100 and Back up again after 150 and not once was there ever any confusion nor did it feel like a problem.

The 50/100 chips are included with Inns & Cathedrals, not the in the Carcassonne base game. In fact, only Hunters & Gatherers includes 50/100 tokens in the base game. Star Wars Carcassonne puts them in Expansion 1, and the other expansions do not include any at all. So it isn't an oddity, it is the standard. I'd recommend either using 50/100 tokens from another version or following Khonnor's advice.

You can buy a sheet of 6 of the 50/100 chips on cundco.de. I just bought several sheets because I liked them so much in the game, so I can use them in all of my Carc versions.

Neat to know, but I have actually become fond of my cubes as "supply crates".

We have the same issue playing 2 player so we just take another color meeple and collect those as our 50 point tokens.
