According to gaming source Boardgame News, Rio Grande Games is releasing a new rendition of the Big Box for this holiday season (release date December 2010). In typical Big Box fashion, this edition's loser is Count, King & Cult, the German expansion that weaseled its way into the English edition because Hans im Glück made the Big Box 2. Instead, the Big Box 3 will feature the newest Carcassonne expansion: Bridges, Castles & Bazaars. This just proves that the Catapult will never be released in a Big Box, unlike every other full-sized expansion released for the game.

Thus far, the only expansions not to be "Boxed" are magazine promos — Games Quarterly #11, Cathars, The Tunnel, and The Plague —, the Wheel of Fortune stand-alone expansion, The Catapult, and the expansions that missed inclusion in Count, King & Cult: Cult, Siege & Creativity and Crop Circles. I rather doubt most of these will make it into any Big Box unless Hans im Glück creates another compilation full expansion (which is possible). I do find the fact that Rio Grande did not replace the base game with Wheel of Fortune a rather unfortunate oversight in this Big Box, but I guess the games is eking out a living as a stand-alone for now.
