My usual warning on the Carc Big Box:

It's stupidly big. The components could fit in a box 1/3 the size. If you're the sort of person who doesn't mind getting rid of the original box, you might want to do that. If you're not, then measure your shelf!

Other than that, awesome game, hours of fun. The two main expansions are worth having this version for, the others are silly novelties mostly but fun for a couple of tries. Does look like the Italian one, but game is fully language independent, you'll just need to download some English rules. Still a thousand times better than Monopoly.

This looks to be the Italian one

Yep, but ordered anyway as you only need to print the free rules off, the tiles have no writing on them.

Once it arrives I'll find the rules and link them.
Yeah I know the language isn’t a killer - just think should be made aware.
You could also look at the Humble Bundle Play with Friends bundle just now, which includes the base game for Steam in the £1 tier, if you like digital versions.

Surely if it's the Italian version it should be more stylish than the english one.

This is a great game and a good price if you want the expansions.

Was just about to message you!
Great game for adults and kids. My 7year old constantly beats me despite my best efforts.
Nice, sold mine ages ago and this is a perfect way to get it back
Excellent gateway game into the larger world of non-mainstream games.

I set up an alert for it after the last deal.

My messaging is banned on here anyway, so just as well I setup the alert.

I already own the base game with the river and Abbot mini expansions so for my situation do you recommend just picking up the first two main expansions separately and not bother paying the extra it would cost for the big box?

Yeah, it's a tricky one since the two expansions are so bloody expensive on their own (about £32 for the two at the moment).

My advice would be: buy this deal, chuck the big box, house all of this set in your original box (yes, it will fit, and you can use your lockdown free time to make some nice little dividers!), then give your original set without box to a friend/family member who enjoys or might enjoy the game.

You'll be £8 worse off, but for that you will have gained several other mini expansions and a less ridiculous box, and made another person happy (and potentially gained a new opponent, always important). Win win win.
