Carcassonne

Carcassonne

Develop the landscape of a medieval fortress city one tile at a time in this classic game. One Step at a Time Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name, Carcassonne is a tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around the fortified city. Players choose from tiles that depict cities, roads, monasteries, and fields; each new tile placed creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers. Players score points by having followers on features as they're completed. The player who makes the most strategic placements of tiles and followers will score the most points and win the game. Jacks of All Trades Followers can take many different roles in Carcassonne—knights, monks, farmers, or thieves—determined by the type of tile on which they're placed. Each role scores points differently, so you'll need careful planning to make the best use of your followers. For example, thieves are placed on roads and score one point for every tile making up that road. On the other hand, monks are placed in cloisters and score nine points—one for each tile surrounding the monastery—when the last of those nine tiles is placed. You have a limited number of followers and, once placed, you don't get them back until the feature they're on is completed. You'll need to consider whether to go for quick scores of low points that leave you with more available followers, or work toward higher points that commit your followers long-term. Best Laid Plans As the map grows, so does the opportunity for players to disrupt each other’s plans. Everyone is adding to the same map and only one follower can be on any given feature at a time—so if you don’t place a follower on something, someone else probably will. Clever placement of tiles and followers can deny other players points—or even steal them away. Whether blocking a city's growth or connecting with your opponent’s road to share the points, Carcassonne provides plenty of ways to use your cunning and outsmart your opponents. Plan Your Way to Victory With its simple yet rich game mechanics and eighty-four tiles that can be configured into numerous combinations, Carcassonne appeals to beginners and veteran gamers alike. This edition is entirely redesigned and modernized, and includes two expansions: The River and The Abbot. Contents: Rule-book, 72 Land Tiles, 40 Meeples, 12 River Tiles, 5 Abbots & 1 Scoreboard.

Carcassonne : Expansion 04 - The Tower

Build imposing structures that touch the sky in this Carcassonne expansion. Towering Above the Countryside In The Tower, the focus is on building up, not out. This expansion for the classic Carcassonne tile-laying game adds eighteen Land tiles, plus thirty tower floors that you can use to construct towers to spot your opponents’ followers. Gain new actions as your towers grow taller or deny your opponents these actions by placing a follower on top of a tower to finish it. If your tower grows tall enough, disrupt other players’ plans by capturing their followers and holding them for ransom! Prisoner Exchange The Tower gives players a direct, strategic method of interacting with other players. When placing a tile depicting a foundation, the player can place a tower floor on that tile or on any open tower on the board. The player can then capture any other player's follower on the board that is visible from the tower. Captured followers are only returned by paying three victory points or “exchanging” prisoners with someone holding one of your followers. The Tower also makes it easier to keep your play area in order. The Tile Tower accessory organizes your tiles from the base game and expansions, making everything easy to access as you play.

Carcassonne : Expansion 05 - Abbey & Mayor

New pieces offer tremendous strategic flexibility in this Carcassonne expansion.Stake Your Claim With a new tile type and three new pieces, the Abbey & Mayor expansion for Carcassonne gives players more options than ever. Abbey tiles act as monasteries, but you can use them to plug holes in the board by filling spaces surrounded by tiles. Mayors help you control cities by using coats of arms to determine their strength. Outside the city walls, Barns synergize with farmers to enhance the value of fields they occupy, while wagons can be placed like followers but then moved from one feature to the next after scoring. Such a variety of tiles and pieces creates numerous opportunities to employ cunning strategies that can outwit opponents. Breaking New Ground Clever follower placement is a hallmark of Carcassonne. With the components in Abbey & Mayor, you can devise new ways to get the most out of each piece. A well-placed Mayor can override other players’ followers and even circumvent large meeples. Also, since the Mayor’s strength is equal to the number of coats of arms in their city, this increased strength also nets them the extra points those same coats of arms provide. You can also use wagons to swoop in and take over features before your opponents can get to them. While first placed like a normal follower, you can move a wagon immediately to an adjacent, uninhabited feature once the original placement is scored. Finally, Barns score any farmers in the field they’re placed in and bestow extra points at the end of the game. Played on their own with the base game or combined with other Carcassonne expansions, Abbey & Mayor provides plenty of new paths to victory.

Carcassonne : Expansion 10 - Under the Big Top

The circus comes to Carcassonne with new meeple types and tiles. The Greatest Show on Earth The tent has been pitched outside of town and the performers are ready to thrill the crowd with their death-defying stunts. A new world of excitement awaits in Under the Big Top, the tenth expansion for award-winning tile-laying game Carcassonne. Capturing the thrill of the circus, this expansion incorporates twenty new Land tiles and two new follower types into the Carcassonne library. Players can use them to attract people from all over the countryside to view their menagerie of animals or witness their feats of death-defying skill. Just like the daring risks that circus performers take, Under the Big Top gives players plenty of opportunities to score big points—if they can draw in the crowds!
Enter the Big Top At the circus, the big top is the main attraction. That’s no exception in Under the Big Top. Much of the expansion focuses on clustering groups of followers around the new tiles with the hope of getting big points when their features are scored. Gather meeples on the Circus tile and its accompanying big top figure or the eight tiles surrounding it and you’ll be rewarded the next time a Circus tile is drawn. Additionally, the circus is so exciting that normal followers are inspired to leave their lives behind and join the show. Stack your meeples into a meeple-pyramid on the Acrobat tiles, impress your friends, and score points once the show is over. Finally, ringmasters behave like normal followers until the circus shows up. When that happens, they score bonus points for being adjacent to Circus and Acrobat tiles when the features they’re on are scored. Under the Big Top brings a whole new layer of excitement to Carcassonne. Who will put on the best show and draw the biggest crowd?
