    Oh I do, please feel free to invite me!

    While I have yet to give this new expansion a spin, beyond a fun fantasy theme, this appears to be adding a whole slew of new mechanics around removing existing meeple as well as ways to then claim those abondoned areas. Heck, other than a way to harrass opponents, it also might be a way to get your own guys out of some useless dead ends!

    Maybe some people played Carcassone to death on the XBox 360 just to get the achievements and have become bored with it?

    I feel silly for never playing this in the past, but I'm actually considering getting into it as I've heard nothing but great things.

    How is the learning curve? I have a few other games I'm currently playing, wanted to see if I could get into it fairly quickly. And does it take a long time to find users to play with?

    Thanks guys!

    My wifie never plays boardgame before, she runs the tutorial by herself and she is playing all, expect P&D, expansions, fine. She is the longest constant opponent.

    My GCID is griffin611, and if you don't mind me losing a lot, I am always looking for a game.

    I guess people are just too busy playing other things. Care to have a game?

    Thank you, sir! I will add you in GC now so I don't forget. Most likely will purchase tomorrow as it's well past 1am right now. Looking forward to playing!

    Ah no. It was during a lull in XBox Arcade releases and I was trying to boost my Gamerscore, so I played that version to death. I can't play Carcassone anymore even though there are expansions here that were never released for the XBox 360 version...

    Hey! Are people still playing this? I'm always looking for new async play partners! My GC name is the same as this one! :)

    This might have been asked before, but what is the price of all expansions (IAP) combined?

    I'm seriously thinking about getting this with all the expansions, but i can't find a price anywhere. I used to play this game (the actual board game) with my 2 brothers, and we had 1 expansion. It would be awesome if we could play it anywhere.

    The game plus all expansions costs about £14.

    Looking to set up a few games. Post if you are interested. Would like a few small games and a few large games.

    Edit: All expansions if possible too.

    Bumping this one more time, it dropped fairly quickly.

    Anyone have recommendations for how to get people to play with? I can't do the real time games but it is hard to find people for asynch mode.

    New expansions are here!

    The Winter theme is cute with the new mechanic ofbthe gingerbread man BUT realize that, while completely compatible with all previous exps, the other exps tiles will still show green grass. :rolleyes:

    Who's up for a double-tiled winter/dragon game?

    Are there any plans to develop Carcassonne: The Castle, either as a stand-alone app or as IAP to the current app? For those of you who haven't tried The Castle, it's a two-player only version of Carcassonne and it is excellent.

    New iOS version just showed up which offers a special fifth anniversary bundle that includes all IAP. The price isn't showing up and I can't purchase it just yet. This is a great game and I can't wait to load up on expansions.

    Update: It's $4.99 in the U.S. I'm glad it's not $5 because that would be too expensive.
