Delve even deeper into the world of Carcassonne with Carcassonne: The Tower! Carcassonne: The Tower is the fourth expansion to Carcassonne, a tile-placement game where players develop the area around Carcassonne and deploy their meeples on the board in order to score points. Carcassonne: The Tower includes new actions players may take during the game, and the use of erecting segments of towers.
During gameplay, players may instead choose to erect a tower segment in place of placing one of their meeples on the board. They may add a segment on any land that permits towers, add segments to towers already standing, or add one of their meeples on top of a tower in order to complete construction of a tower. Towers allows you to capture other players’ meeples on the board, depending on how high you have built your tower. If a tower is only one segment high, that player may only capture meeples that are within one tile of the tower, two tiles with two tower segments and so on. Not only do players of captured meeples lose any points that that meeple could have scored at the end of the game, but they must additionally pay three victory points in order to free that meeple and place them elsewhere for points.
Carcassonne: The Tower is an expansion that requires the base game in order to play. Carcassonne: The Tower is recommended for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.
