Carcassonne: Traders & Builders

Postby sourisdudesert » 28 May 2017, 20:19

Just a few weeks after the first expansion ("Inns & Cathedrals"), we are happy to introduce the second expansion for Carcassonne: Traders & Builders.

This expansion adds 24 new tiles to the base game, and three new rules:

1. The Pig is a new piece you can place on a field where you already have a meeple. It gives you +1 per city scored whith this field (but does not count for majorities).

2. The Builder is another new piece you can place on a city/road where you already have a meeple. When you extend a city/road with a builder on it, you get an extra turn. Note that builders do not count for majorities.

3. Some city tiles have one good (wine/cloth/wheat) on them. When you place a tile to finish a city, you earn the goods displayed on the city (even if you don't own any meeple on this city). At the end of the game, for each type of good, the player(s) with the most goods of that type get an additional +10 points.

We'd like to thank again all Carcassonne players here on BGA who have contributed to make this Carcassonne adaptation such a great success, allowing us to introduce this new expansion. If you continue to play here, we will very likely be able to add more expansions in the future!

Enjoy!

Thank you for continuing to add expansions to the website.

The more popular a game is, the bigger chance you have to get an expansion on BGA :) So advertise for your preferred games and make them played :)

Wow !! Amazing!! Tnx BGA , another great expansion , i guess the only thing that is missing is the best expansion for Carcassone - The River. It gives so much variety in every game since the begining is always different. Any chance that the River will be coming also ? ( It is just 8 new starting tiles basicly, how hard can it be :) ) Keep up the good work guys :)

Thank you, this is very welcome. Just getting the hang of the basic game and love it. In your description below, what does "does not count for the majority" mean?

The player with the majority (= the most) of Meeples in a city/road/field scores, and the other players score nothing. However, the pig & builders does not count for majorities.
