Board game publisher Hans im Gluck Verlags has announced Carcassonne Star Wars will be released in the autumn of 2015. The news came via Twitter after a public preview at the international toy fair, Spielwarenmesse, in Nuremberg.
Cassonne was designed by Klaus-Jurgen Wrede, published first in Germany by Hans im Gluck and has gone on to be translated into 24 languages. Today you can buy it in stores like Toys R US in the United States. These license holders, including Z-Man Games in the States, are believed negotiating with Hans im Gluck for the rights for additional games. Hopefully Carcassonne Star Wars features in those conversations.
One thing is clear – we can expect plenty of Star Wars merchandise this year and a Star Wars version of Carcassonne would be exceptionally well timed given the new movies.
