When did the cover art change?
This: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/1565
is the cover of the version I have.
But this:
http://www.adam-spielt.de/phpshop/index.php?PHPSESSID=8b22bf...
appears to be the cover of the current edition (I couldn't find a BGG image.)

I'd never have noticed except that I happened to have two sets out the other night with the two slightly different pictures.

I think that's the cover of a new expansion for the game... something about dragons and maidens, I don't know much more than that.

Cool. I'd be keen to add some dragons to my Carcassonne game.

No, it's definitely the current game box (with the SdJ 2001 flash on it).
The only image with the "new" box cover I could find in the BGG database was this one:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/63596
which shows the Czech editions of the game - but has that illustration too...

Well, see, the man in the lower right had a certain operation, and wanted the cover art to reflect his new lifestyle.

Looking at the pieces, it looks like a wood dragon and maid, also the tiles have a couple of new symbols on them.

Hmmm... mine has the fair lady making eyes at the knight, not the disposable peasant.

I guess they changed it in a later print run, to make it more... ahem... sexy.
