Hey Novelty, would you be up to a bigger challenge like making a double-wide scoreboard that goes up to 100? I started on one myself but got stuck. I could send you what I managed to accomplish thus far...

That's a good idea. I've seen some attempts at this but thought that they were not that good.

However, we use the superb extra points scoreboard: http://www.carcassonne-city.de/ click on "Grundlage" menu, then "Das Grundspiel" link, followed by  "Umrundungsleiste" link, then lastly "Umrundungsleiste als PDF-Datei" for the PDF file. Print out in 'best' quality and mount to card. I also laminated my copy. You just then need extra markers Smiley

If you want a board like this for 'Hunters and Gatherers' just click on "Umrundungsleiste zu "Jäger und Sammler" instead of "Umrundungsleiste als PDF-Datei" Smiley

Scott: sure, send me what you have and I'll see if I can doctor something up.

Deatheux: which "first river/road tile" are you talking about?  Do you mean the one with the boat landing?  Well, dwhitworth wanted the farms in the top and bottom connected so I made one where the right side was connected for him, but I can do another variant for you as well with 4 different farm sections.

what a constructive idea(not to make out a sucky tricky word game!) but that 100 pts board is kicking balls!!!

may we have something we can bend in 2... like common boards games(not to throwing name...)

we can made out some more tiles 50/100...

The quality is good, but I'm not keen on keeping track of score in yet another place, or needing another set of six markers.

I'm sending my partially-completed Carc scoring track in PNG format to Novelty via Megaupload (27 MB). If it pans out, then we just need to change the 50/100 tiles to 100/200 tiles. By being double-wide, my intention is that the 0-99 scoring track can fold in half and fit in the original box.

Matt: how about grabbing a copy of that scoreboard and adding it to our downloads page?  I'm sure fair use would allow us to redistribute it without a problem, but if unsure, we could always ask.

He, I hadn't checked the file Joff linked to before. But now that I have, I can tell you that it isn't original to carcassonne-city.de. It's actually from the official homepage, buried amongst their list of downloads.

As for adding it to our site, I think I have a better idea. The current downloads are requires the files to actually be located on our (well, my) server. If we move to freely available downloads, I was planning to actually move the downloads page so that it mirrored the FAQ style, and then add manual links to all the files. It would be rather easy then to have a include links to files on other people's sites, without actually duplicating the files and hosting our own version. Then I'll go through the various bits and pieces on the official site and add them all (at least, the useful ones).

Here's a preview of Scott's version completed:



I'm not sure how good the quality is when it is printed as the original copy that Scot was working with wasn't a very good scan to begin with.  This is the small version and I don't think think it's printable.  I'm not going to post the link here to the full big version to make it available because it's a huge file, but will PM it to someone who can load it here on this site as a free download.

That needs to be hosted here right away.  I want it!  Also, could someone create a 200 score tile to paste over the 50 side?

Since Matt hosts the downloads section, I'll leave it up to him.  I can host it here on this domain and he can link to it if he wants.

The grass near 57 should probably be varied a little more, but other than that it looks awesome.

I scanned the original track as best I knew how. It seemed pretty decent to me, though definitely not as good as the quality of your scans. I am interested in learning how to scan better.

I was contemplating placing something on the grass near 57, and building a wall south of 64 to 57, but decided it was too much effort, particularly if nobody's gonna appreciate it or be using it.  OK, here's the updated small version of the scoring track:



I think it looks better.  I'll wait for Matt to give me instructions on how to send him the full version of the file (if he wants to host it here).

I haven't scanned any Carcassonne stuff yet.  All I've done is plagarised the scans off BGG (mostly scans done by Matt).  Matt can probably tell you how he scanned his tiles to get such a nice finish.  All I know is - scan at (at least) 300 dpi.

The new version looks great. Be happy to host it. You could pm me a copy, or send it directly via email (my email is plastered all over my website).

I'm a bit busy at the moment, so I'd probably just add it to the current downloads section, rather that try to rebuild the downloads section right away

Oh, and most of the scans on BGG are by other people Wink I've scanned a few things, but I'm no expert…
