Product Description

In this 2nd expansion to Carcassonne, 24 new landscape tiles not only offer new terrain such as bridges and bent cities, some tiles also contain goods symbols. Players use these to acquire wine, cloth and grain. The best traders can get additional profits at the end of the game.

Builder tokens are also new to the game -- when placed in a city, a second tile may be played when expanding the city or roads leading from it.

Pig markers are also new -- these can be placed with a farmer to enrich the value of a farm.

Also included is a cloth bag for the tiles, making it easier to shuffle and draw them during the game, as well as making the game more portable. The expansion has components for 6 players and is completely compatible with the first expansion. Thus, players may play with the original Carcassonne, with Carcassonne and the 1st expansion, with Carcassonne and the 2nd expansion, or with Carcassonne and both expansions!

Good expansion set
July 15, 2004

Traders & Builders is a good expansion set. The builder adds an extra dimension of fun - it encourages players to build where their builder is to get a 2nd tile on their turn. Probably the best thing about this expansion are the goods tiles. Because of the value these tiles bring, they encourage players to finish cities to get these tiles. This encourages players to not be so focused on completing their own cities because there is incentive in finishing others's cities. This cures one of the faults of the original Carcassonne. The only thing I don't feel is too necessary is the pig. The value that the pig adds to farms doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

 
 
 
 
 
after a single game...
January 02, 2004

My wife and I just played a game of Carcassonne with the Traders and Builders expansion (along with the Inns and Cathedrals expansion). We would agree with other reviewers in that it didn't change the dynamics of the game significantly, but the twists were interesting and novel (especially if you haven't tried the Hunters and Gatherers version yet). At first, we were going to keep the expansion separate from the original game, but after playing once, we decided to add the tiles to the mix, combining all the expansions with the original in one box. This expansion is well worth the money, and we don't think we'll be going back to playing just the original for the forseeable future.

 
 
 
 
 
Good Game - Great Game
August 14, 2003

After the first time of playing the original Carcassonne (with the River Expansion) at some friends of ours, we were hooked. A couple of weeks after playing it, I went out and bought the original, and the 2 expansions (Traders & Builders and Inns & Cathedrals). Both sets are excellent. Add both expansions together to get a superb game! The only downside to the expansions are the difference in colours on the backs of the tiles (very slightly). The Traders & Builders edition makes up for this though, as it has a cloth bag included in the game, to place all the tiles in.
