Product Description

Carcassonne: King and Scout is two expansions in one for both the original Carcassonne and Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers. With seven tiles for the original game, this expansion allows players to gain both the King and the Robber Baron - the former giving points to the player with the largest city, and the latter to the player with the most roads. The remaining five tiles are new, unique combinations that fit well with the original game. The five tiles included for the Hunters and Gatherers version are randomly dealt out at the beginning, allowing each player a special tile that can be played once a game. This small expansion is a terrific stocking stuffer!

Fence the Farmers In
September 30, 2011

I enjoy this addition because it seems to curtail the power of farmers especially in a two player game. The river breaks up the farmers' territory. Essential no. Fun and useful yes.

Minor Expansion For 2 Great Games!
November 02, 2008

Here is another of the multitude of expansions for Carcassonne. This is actually one of the minor expansion sets, in that it merely adds new tiles for Carcassonne, however for Hunters And Gatherers, it adds some very powerful, perhaps even over-powering cards. The Carcassonne tiles aren't anything special, and if you got this before the new "identifying watermarks" that all new Carcassonne expansion tiles get, you'll never be able to find them in your base game. The 5 tiles for Hunters And Gatherers are offered as "bonus" tiles to each player at game set up, in lieu of drawing a normal tile the player can lay this down, each one has a different "super power" offering that player a bonus. It's an inexpensive thing, you won't hurt your budget to get this, but if you don't have both games, it probably isn't worth your while. 1 start for the Carcassonne tiles, and 1 star for Hunters And Gatherers tiles 2 stars altogether woo woo!!!!

Remember you can't play the TILES unless you're playing the game!!!!

Paratroopers In Carcassonne!
November 02, 2008

That is essentially what this expansion does, it adds an element of war to this otherwise benign city building game.

This is one of the minor expansions, I call it minor as it came in a small roughly landscape tile sized box, and only had 12 tiles and the lone Count meeple. Basically what this is, is a starting tile/spine. Normally you start Carcassonne with the start tile, if you don't have the river. If you have The River, and/or The River II you start with that, which is essentially a starting spine. Same concept for this except you are building the "suburbs" which will surround the main city, where the Count hangs out. You play the game as normal, and try to score points. If however you cause another player to score points (and score nothing yourself) you get to put a meeple in the city walls. You can place him on the market, on the castle, on the cathedral, or in town. Meeples on these features can "paratroop" into other features that are about to be scored. You can drop in on a farm (market), castle (castle), cloister (cathedral) or road (town). You may place your meeple in there at anytime, provided you do not place a normal meeple that turn. These meeples can ignore the normal placement rules, meaning I can drop a guy in on your 33 tile "3 point castle" and not have to "sneak in". This is an overwhelmingly powerful expansion, and I can't speak for everyone, but I'm sure if you have this one, you've probably only played it once, ok maybe twice, but certainly not more than thrice. I think that's the literal truth, we used this expansion about 3 times and then abandoned it. The tiles aren't even good enough to use as regular game tiles, so it's truly not worthwhile, then again it's only a few bucks out of your pocket so it won't hurt your budget if you wind up hating it. 1 star for effort 0 stars for usefulness. If the 12 tiles could be doubled up as regular landscape tiles that might be worth something, but the game is cheap so what's it going to hurt?

Oh and don't forget, you can't pass GO if you're not in the game!!!!
