Star Wars Carcassonne releases late 2016

If you’re thinking ‘really, wasn’t that already out’, you’re probably not alone, since quite a few reviewers and gamers had copies of “Carcassonne: Star Wars” last year (we didn’t because we live in Australia aka Mars). That was “Carcassonne: Star Wars – Multilingual first edition 2015), whereas this is the single print run from Z-Man games in an arrangement with German publisher Hans in Gluck Verlags (Hans im Glück).

Needless to say this is “Carcassonne” with a Star Wars retheme. There’s trading routes, planets, asteroids and merchants in lieu of the usual cities, roads and robbers of the original. Overall this one had fairly solid reviews and it’s Star Wars, so needless to say it’s probably going to sell well for Z-Man Games.

Images of an expansion featuring Kylo Ren have also been spotted in the wild via Hans im Glück, so one would assume if this sells well enough we may also see expansions releasing eventually.

It’s slated for a late 2016 release.
