Title: Carcassonne components sizing information
Post by: Scott on February 09, 2013, 09:16:13 AM
From time to time, we get questions about the size of various components. The answers provided were always imprecise, so I decided to obtain the necessary equipment and do a proper study.

The Equipment

Digital caliper
Precision: 0.01mm
Limit: 150.00mm

Digital scale
Precision: 0.01g
Limit: 100g

Original Carcassonne and expansions

Tiles: 45.00mm long x 45.00mm wide x 2.05mm thick (thickness varies between expansions from 1.92mm to 2.05mm) - 2.81g
Scoring track: 259.2mm long x 178.2mm wide x 2.04mm thick (length and width are too large to caliper) - approx 65g (too large to weigh on digital scale; had to use a manual suspension hand scale)
Trade good: 20.25mm wide x 20.80mm tall x 2.05mm thick - 0.47g
Tower: 118.42mm wide x 66.12mm deep x 228mm tall (too tall to measure with caliper) - (too heavy; need a larger capacity scale)
Knock out token: 24.85mm wide x 19.97mm tall x 1.95mm thick - 0.64g
Seduction token: 22.05mm wide x 21.86mm tall x 1.95mm thick - 0.62g
Target hurling token: 24.13mm diameter x 1.96mm thick - 0.62g
Catch token: 19.14mm diameter x 1.95mm thick - 0.40g
Measuring board: 205.3mm long x 56.34mm tall x 1.93mm thick (length was approximated; too long to caliper) - 10.51g
(measurement markings from 0 to 20 cm were verified accurate against my tape measure)
Tile bag (T&B): 205mm wide x 264mm tall - 14.07g
Bridge: 45.63mm long x 24.37mm tall x 10.27mm wide - 4.77g

Barn: 19.44mm wide x 18.86m long x 15.07mm tall - 2.56g
Catapult: 257mm long x 54mm tall x 22.86mm wide (too long for caliper, and height cannot be calipered due to flexibility) - 29.81g
Pig from Wheel of Fortune: 25.71mm long x 13.66mm tall x 10.12mm thick - 1.91g

Carcassonne: The Castle

Castle tiles: 44.88mm wide x 44.92mm long x 2.03mm thick - 2.81g

Tiles: 44.84mm wide x 44.94mm tall x 2.17mm thick - 2.92g
Settler: 13.23mm wide x 18.28mm tall x 10.08mm thick - 1.05g
Surveyor: 17.71mm wide x 20.89mm tall x 10.28mm thick - 1.76g

Carcassonne: The City

Long wall: 43.69mm long x 14.93mm tall x 8.91mm thick - 3.50g
Short wall: 34.44mm long x 15.07mm tall x 9.00mm thick - 2.93g
Tower: 15.53mm diameter x 33.87mm tall - 2.89g
Meeple: 15.98mm wide x 16.24mm tall x 9.93mm thick - 1.12g

10th Anniversary Edition

Scoring Track: 220mm* wide x 220mm* tall x 1.83mm thick - 40.88g
Tiles: 45.08mm wide x 45.08mm tall x 1.89mm thick - 2.70g
Meeples: 15.82mm wide x 15.85mm tall x 7.98mm thick - 1.43g
Box: 233mm* wide x 233mm* tall x 65.10mm thick (I don't normally measure the box, but since it's meeple-shaped I thought somebody might be interested.)

* Measured with a ruler; may not be exact.

The Phantom

Meeples: 15.82mm wide x 15.85mm tall x 7.98mm thick - 1.43g
Box: 58.44mm wide x 58.82mm tall x 23.83mm thick - 23.15g (empty)

Naturally I couldn't resist and had to buy one of each color of the box.

The Dice Game

Dice: 15.94mm x 15.68mm x 15.77mm - 5.25g
Box: 110.00mm x 109.50mm x 41.61mm thick - 69.46g

I triple-checked the caliper measurements on the dice and got the same numbers each time. You would expect dice to be perfectly square, but apparently not. The dice line up perfectly with each other regardless of orientation, so you can't really tell the difference just by looking at them. The catapult face is opposite of the meeple face. To the right of the catapult is the CCFF joined face. Left of the catapult is CFCF (two opposing half-rounds). Above the catapult is CCCF, and below is CCFF unjoined. Each die is identical. Let's examine the faces more closely:

Catapult: 15.93mm x 15.86mm = 252.6498mm^2
Meeple is on opposing face and therefore same size.

CCFF joined: 15.86mm x 15.89mm = 252.0154mm^2
CFCF is on opposing face and therefore same size.

CCCF: 15.93mm x 15.71mm = 250.2603mm^2
CCFF unjoined is on opposing face and therefore same size.

The catapult and meeple faces are indeed the largest. The largest face will have a higher percentage of landing because the center of gravity is shifted in the die.



Those are the only ones I have at the moment, but I'll add more measurements as I purchase the games/expansions.

Joff has heard a rumor that the meeples from The Children of Carcassonne will be 23mm tall x 21mm wide.
scotty13 reports that the tiles are 7cm square.
According to GAKDragon, the travel Carcasonne tile bag is 18.5cm wide by 29cm tall.

Could someone else post here the sizing information about the Minis 1-6 (7) ?
Perhaps you can do it like how I have done it with the Carcassonne-Goldrush...

something like this:

general:
- Tuckbox: ... mm high - ... mm wide - ... mm thick

Mini 1 - Flying Machines:
- die: ... mm high - ... mm wide - ... mm thick

Mini 2 - Messages:
- woman follower: ... mm high - ... mm wide - ... mm thick

...and so on

I took a bunch of components to work today to measure them. I've organized the data to match kettlefish's request but I also have an excel file full of all the current data I could upload. All the lengths were measured with a caliper and mass was measured on a balance, both tools were calibrated two months ago. When I find my pair of large calipers I'll be able to measure larger components but right now I'm limited to 150mm. Also, soft components such as paper and cloth are not exact dimensions because they're difficult to measure, this also includes the mini box because I didn't think to unfold the box.

Excellent work! Thank you Neil, seeing the variance in dice is quite alarming.  I have to ask: Did you get any strange looks from your co-workers?

Hi Neil,
thank you very much for this update. The excel file is a very good idea. Is it possible for you to make a pdf ore jpg file for it? Then you can upload it as an attachment here.

Excellent work! Thank you Neil, seeing the variance in dice is quite alarming.  I have to ask: Did you get any strange looks from your co-workers?

The Star Wars game was the most shocking because they're plastic dice. I may take them back and measure all sides to determine a standard deviation of the six dice. I stayed after my shift to measure everything so I didn't bother anyone. My boss came up and asked what I was doing and I explained it to her, she remembered playing the game in college. I reassured her that I was doing this on my own time. She said I couldn't be in the lab when I'm not on the clock, gave me a wink, and that's how I was paid an hour of overtime to measure game pieces.

Hi Neil,

Yes, I can do both. It may take a day or two before I get around to cleaning up all the text but I'll upload it soon.

Haha - well don't get into trouble on our account.

At least you didn't tell your boss you were measuring your wood  :-[ :-[
That's why they don't let me near the machinery any more  :@

It's quite common for dice to be of varying sizes, if you take a set of regular die and stack them 1:6 the height of 10 will be significantly different from the 2:5 sides.  I'll see if I can take a shot so you can see.

It's a relaxed work environment, but not that relaxed. haha

I've attached a pdf of my sheet so far. It was difficult to get it to print without having a lot of white space. I'm sure there are components that I'm missing, suggestions to complete the list are welcomed.

Hello all,

I'm not sure where to find it.
But does anyone knows what the size of the tiles is in pixels?
(or is this a very weird question? :P)

Wenn du eine gute Qualität haben willst sind ca. 1064 pixel für eine 600 DPI Auflösung besser.

I learned a long time ago, that you never deal with pixels if it's for printing purposes. Millimeter and DPI is a better approach. :)
