I don't know if jungleboy was planning on doing one of his famous write-ups for this but I've posted some screenshots anyway:







I very much enjoyed this game!  >:D

It's hard work being a Carcassonne journalist and I need a day off!

OK Duncan, you're in! As usual, there will be a game this Thursday at 21:30 CET. Whayleyland's element of the week is the Tower, so we should include that. What other expansions do people want to play with and/or think go well with the Tower? As I said in another thread, I think the German monasteries match up well with the Tower, but we did use the monasteries last week so maybe we shouldn't do it two weeks in a row. Anyway, it's up to you guys.

Sign me up.

Great to have you on board! Have you installed JCloisterZone yet? I recommend getting a few games in before Thursday evening just so you're familiar with the interface.

What other expansions do people want to play with and/or think go well with the Tower? As I said in another thread, I think the German monasteries match up well with the Tower, but we did use the monasteries last week so maybe we shouldn't do it two weeks in a row.

Although we included them last time I don't think I claimed a single German Monastery so I don't mind if we include them again this time and I might even get to claim one!

If we're going to make it an aggressive game then why not include Princess & Dragon as well? And how about something like The Festival as well since we've not used that before? Would take total tile count up to: 72 + 18 + 6 + 30 + 10 = 136 which is almost the same as last time...

I'm not too fussed as I think The Tower is going to throw me off a bit anyway. Variety is a good thing though! Any other suggestions?

I know you are only asking for a suggestion for an expansion or two I'd like for this weeks game, but I was introdused to this game for not a long time ago and have not played to many games yet. I don't know what expansions are good together, so I just tell what is my opinion on some I like.

I like the T&B because I like using the builder for ekstra tile drawing. Somethimes I like to take out only the bridges from that expansion because I like the more oppertuneties they give. But here in the JCloisterZone we could play the full expansion. I like King & Robber Baron. I like the Cathars/Siege or The Besiegers since they change the points for some cities and farmers.  I think The Cult is nice, but have only played it once before since my gf hates it. I've never tried the tunnel nor Corn Circles, so they would also be nice to try at one time. And I just love to have the Phantom, so I can try to grab some ekstra points :-)

I'll jump into any game of Carcassonne, so just put together what you think is best. I just wanted to mention my favorits:-)

I am in, if I won't be too late at work.
Maybe we should, at last, add BC&B? ;)

BC&B would be good except for the bazaars. Is there a JCloisterZone option to house-rule these (I can't easily check as I'm at work at the moment)? This is a lot better than my suggestion of including The Princess & The Dragon anyway. Farms can be very confusing when bridges are added, but they're definitely a lot of fun, as are castles.

Tower + Traders & Builders + Bridges, Castles & Bazaars = 54 tiles (+72 = 126)

Perhaps include (Wind Roses or Tunnel or Corn Circles) and The Phantom?

There is an option "No bazaar bidding. Each player just chooses one tile".

and The Phantom?

You should just make this your signature at this point.  :green-meeple:

So what's the final decision on expansions for tonight's game?

Tower, Traders and Builders, Bridges, Castles and Bazaars, the Phantom and one or two small ones?

German Monasteries was definitely mentioned at some point. I'm still up for including this.
