Product Description

The fifth major expansion to Carcassonne, Abbey & Mayor adds 3 new wooden piece types, 6 abbey tiles, and 12 landscape tiles. The Abbey tiles act as Cloisters but do not have to match adjacent tiles and they complete adjacent features when placed. Mayors can be placed only in cities, with their strength determined by the number of pennants in the city. Barns allow players to score fields during the game rather than just at the end. Wagons are placed on roads, cities, or cloisters, and can move to an adjacent open feature when their current feature is completed.

Finally An Expansion To Fill Some Holes! Literally!
November 02, 2008

This is latest in a line of many expansions for this wonderful game of civil engineering and castle building. In this major expansion set we get new mechanics, new meeples!, and new strategies!!!!

This expansion really gives you your money's worth. First of all I have to give the casual player one caveat for this series. It's up to like 7 official expansions both minor and major, it has 6 or maybe it's 7 spin-offs, and the parent game that started it all has the most of everything, therefore I suggest you start small, buy the basic version, then after a while start on the expansions. There are so many new rules, meeples, expansions, and what not that if you played all of the rules and used all of the meeples from all expansions you're looking at a game that could potentially last 3 hours!!!! That's ok if you like that long of a game, but you really should slowly build up to that level. You don't want to overwhelm yourself at the beginning, with that said you'll also need this caveat as well. Don't get this expansion until you've had a chance to get ALL the others first, even though this is by far the best of the bunch (of the expansions that is).

This expansion gives us 3 new meeples, the Mayor (we call him the Pantalones guy because he's got on "big pants"), the Cart and the Barn. We played with all of the rules at first, but now we ignore the barn and use him for our scoring marker, actually each player has to cough up one meeple for the scoring track anyway, so I let each player decide for themselves, but usually we all dump the barn as it's a "single use" kind of thing anyway. Well, eventually you ARE GOING TO HAVE to get this, the orange "Super Unfudgie" tile (as we call it) can unlock your blocked meeple(s), and score you an extra 9 points. The Unfudgie has a Cloister within it, and if/when you deploy it AND if you have a meeple out you can score 9 extra points. This expansion is awesome, I give it 4 stars because it works great, brings in some newer tiles, some great new meeples, the cart is awesome too, and in general is an excellent addition to an otherwise excellent game. I don't recommend more that one of these, but if you're going to expand your Carcassonne, you can't go wrong with this one. The orange tile might cause you some trepidation at first but once you realize that it separates the 4 features it touches on all four sides your confusion will end.

Remember you can't UNFUDGIE yourself if you're not in the game!!!!

Nice addition to the game
January 08, 2008

My girlfriend and i bought this expansion today and immediately started playing it. There are a few new additions, the abbey, the mayor, the wagon and the barns. We found the barns to be quite confusing and just add to the farming system and how confusing that can get.

One surprise however, was the Abbey. I found this to be quite an interesting little piece that adds a new element to the game. The Abby can be placed anywhere on the map as long as it is surrounded on the four corners, (not diagonals). This allows you to finish those pesky cities that just wont get finished.

They mayor and the wagon are both useful however they do not change the game too much. All in all i found this expansion worth the money as it does add some new exciting elements to the game, but definitely not necessary.
