Description of the basic game and expansions that are included:

Carcassonne:

A clever tile-laying game. The players develop the area around Carcassonne by placing tiles to form the map of the area - different for every game! They deploy their followers on the roads, in the ities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. The skill of the players to develop the area and plan the best placement of their followers will determine who scores the most points and wins the game/

Contents:

  • 72 landscape tiles
  • 6 point tiles
  • 1 scoring board
  • 48 wooden followers in 6 colors

Inns & Cathedrals:

The Cathedral triples the value of a city, and the Inn doubles the value of a road - but only when they are scored as completed features. At the end of the game, they reduce the value of a feature to 0. Players may use the new large follower to double their chances of contolling a city, road, or field.

Contents:

  • 18 new landscape tiles
  • 6 large wooden followers

Traders & Builders:

Traders can earn players extra points and builders enable players to place exta tiles, allowing the cities and roads to grow faster. A pig, properly placed, can enrich the value of a farm. Players can also collect wares for extra scoring at the end of the game.

Contents:

  • 24 new landscape tiles
  • 20 ware tiles
  • 6 wooden builders
  • 6 wooden pigs

Princess & Dragon:

The land around Carcassonne is being visited by a dragon, making life very  difficult for the followers. Brave heroes venture forth to face the dagner, but without the aid of the fairies, their chances are not good. In the city, the princess seeks help from the knights, and farmers build secret passages to move about undetected by the dragon.

Contents:

  • 30 new landscape tiles
  • 1 woden Dragon
  • 1 woden Fairy

Abbey & Mayor:

Traveling merchants move their goods to surrounding cities and monasteries. The cities in the surrounding countryside can increase to a size large enough to elect their own mayors. Simple farmers build large and wealthy farms and the church tries to strengthen their influence by establishing abbeys.

  • 6 wooden wagons
  • 6 wooden mayors
  • 6 wooden barns
  • 6 Abbey tiles

  • 12 new landscape tiles
  • 12 castle tiles
  • 12 wooden bridges
