As we are coming closer to Spiel, I'm curious to find out.

Earlier this year/late last year, I believe I read either here or over on CarcassonneCentral that someone talked to the designer at an event and was told there would be a expansion and a stand-alone spin-off coming this year. So far, nothing has been revealed yet, but I wonder if this is still on for this year. Maybe someone knows, or has new information?

Can't wait for more Carcassonne!

Hi Connor,

If you're looking for more information on upcoming releases, I suggest heading over to Carcassonne Central.

Well, without meaning to sound rude,

what's the harm in asking here?

Also, I'm kinda done with CC to be honest. The site is either down, or there are hardly any new posts. I check the site every now and then, but visit BGG just more often. That's why I asked here.

But, if there is any information on upcoming releases, would you mind terribly to share it here as well? meeple

No offense taken.

The BGG forums are organized per game/expansion, so this particular forum is for talking about the Carcassonne base game. Talking about future releases is outside the scope.

Your comments about CarcCentral being down are not entirely fair. I'll certainly take the blame for the downtime last month, because that was due to my own actions, but the previous long period of downtime last winter was entirely due to circumstances beyond our control. Your statement that "the site is either down..." makes it seem like this is regular problem, which is not true.

As for "hardly any new posts", what have you done to rectify that? If everyone took the same attitude as you, nobody would ever post. If you want to see more activity at CarcCentral, reply to other people's threads and start threads of your own.

If we shared everything on here, what incentive would there be for people to go to CarcCentral? That being said, my intention is not to steal people away from BGG. CarcCentral serves a very specific purpose, while BGG serves a broader purpose. I encourage members of CarcCentral to be active on BGG as well. My reason for suggesting that you pose questions regarding upcoming releases on CarcCentral rather than BGG is because you're more likely to get an answer on CarcCentral. We have worked very hard over the past 12 months to build a strong relationship with Hans-im-Glueck and part of that relationship has included advance information. This allows us to be among the first to report on new things, but also burdens us with a great responsibility to not reveal information too early. With regards to the release of information, I must defer to our official liaison, Kettlefish. She will publicize information on CarcCentral and Carcassonne-Forum when Hans-im-Glueck determines that it is appropriate.

Just to clarify is there usually a forum that the normal visitors can see with all these exclusive details (and therefore could mirror/link it here)

Or is this more for the upper echelons who know about it (and therefore the pre-knowledge doesn't impact reg visitors)

To be fair in the last six months there has been one massive shutdown of the website and a small one last month

A standalone? Surely Carcassonne needs new expansions.

Oh...nice to know! Thanks!

Hopefully it will be an Essen release?

I also received an e-mail from Spielbox that next issue will have a Carcassonne expansion, but I'm assuming it will be Windrose.
