Carcassonne

Carcassonne

Carcassonne is the popular medieval tile laying game that grew quickly to be an international phenomenon. Certainly the most successful game of its genre, Carcassonne is easy to learn, entertaining and yet provides continuing depth and interest.

Carcassonne won both the Spiel des Jahres and the Deutscher Spiele Preis game awards upon its initial release in 2001. The board game is named after the medieval walled city of Carcassonne in France

The expansion packs provide Carcassonne with a large part of its appeal. People generally use all the extra tiles but the additional rules are optional so players choose which extra rules to use each time they play. Some are considered almost essential whereas you might find you prefer not to use others every time. To save you time and money, we've done the research and made available the Carcassonne expansion packs that are generally known to work best.

  • New 2015 edition of the classic tile-laying game
  • This edition features 2 mini bonus expansion packs - The River and The Abbot
  • Winner of the coveted Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) 2001
  • Simple to learn. Lots of strategy
  • Great fun for both children and adults

Carcassonne is the enormously popular tile laying game for two to five players.

This is the basic Carcassonne set. From late 2014, this version also includes the River expansion and the Abbot expansion packs. There are a variety of other expansion packs available. The game board is a medieval landscape which grows as the game continues. On each turn a player draws a new terrain tile and places it adjacent to an laid tile and then has the option of placing one of player's follower people (meeple) on a feature shown on the tile. Points are scored in Carcassonne for owning and completing roads, cities, cloisters and, at the end of the game, for any farms owned by a player that are adjacent to cities.

Carcassonne usually has several areas being vied for at any one time providing good strategic interest but is not too complicated for children - indeed it's one of those games that is great for both children and adults.

Please note, the new edition Carcassonne games feature new artwork and graphics which does not match the older style. The tiles will still fit but will look different.

Contains small parts. Unsuitable for children younger than 4 years old.

Inns and Cathedrals is the first and most popular expansion pack for Carcassonne, the award winning and continuingly successful tile laying game.

In Carcassonne players to gain points by completing roads, cities and cloisters that they own and by holding farms adjacent to cities at the end of the game. Inns and Cathedrals expansion pack 1 extends the basic gameplay in a contiguous and elegant way providing more options and intrigue during the game:

  • extends the game so that 6 can play
  • adds a larger meeple (follower piece ) for each player that counts double
  • road tiles with inns that count for extra points if completed but zero points if incomplete at the end of the game!
  • cathedral tiles that count for extra points if added to cities but beware - a city with a cathedral will score nothing if incomplete at the end of the game
  • 20 new landscape tiles (including those that incorporate inns & cathedrals)

Inns and Cathedrals does not alter the game-play or objectives in a significant way - merely enhancing them for more interest.

Some people feel that Abbey and Mayor expansion goes nicely with Inns and Cathedrals because it reduces the difficulty in completing a city when it contains a Cathedral.

Please note this is the latest edition and features brand new artwork. The tiles will still fit the older versions but the graphics and artwork will not match.

Contains small parts. Unsuitable for children younger than 4 years old.

The second major expansion of Carcassonne, Builders & Traders featuring enhancements to the rules for cities and farms plus a new builder rule that gives the bonus of an extra turn...

Unlike some of the other expansions, Builders and Traders does not alter the game-play or objectives in a significant way - merely enhancing it for more interest.

  • 20 goods tokens that can appear within cities - points for which are awarded to the player that completes the city (even though they may not be the player that scores for the city itself).
  • There is a charming new playing piece in the form of a pig - this increases the value of any farm into which it is introduced.
  • The addition of a builder piece. Add this to any road, city or cloister and the player can then take another turn whenever a tile is added to that feature
  • 20 extra landscape tiles

As with all expansions, the extra rules are optional. Maybe you love the pigs so you usually use them but consider that the builder rule is only good fun when there are more than 3 players...

Please note this is the latest edition and features brand new artwork. The tiles will still fit the older versions but the graphics and artwork will not match.

Contains small parts. Unsuitable for children younger than 4 years old.
