Expansion League #6: Bridges, Castles & Bazaars - SIGN UP HERE!
« on: February 05, 2017, 05:22:01 AM »
As danisthirty wrote before, it's me who will be responsible for further Leagues and World Cups, so the time has come to represent the next Expansion League: Bridges, Castles & Bazaars League!

Players have different opinions about this expansion, especially Bazaars element, but we have what we have. Besides, this expansion's selection is based on forum members votes. I personally like this expansion, especially for bridges, as they can help to connect to opponent's farms much more easily >:D So, let's find out all the secrets of Carcassonne's 8th big expansion! :D

All matches will be base game + BC&B expansion only, total of 84 tiles including classic start tile. Not so big addition in tiles, but time consumption can be bigger because of bazaars. We do use auctions, so we'll play according to full official rules, without variants.

Maximum amount of players is not defined, let's see how many players we will get, and then I will decide, how many groups we will have. The registration gates will be opened for about 2 weeks.

Please confirm that you have read our Code of Conduct before signing up to take part, to ensure that you have a proper idea of what is expected of you individually in order for this competition to be successful and enjoyable for everyone. Tournament rules will be similar to all previous Expansion League competitions so most of you are familiar with them, but still I will publish the rules together with groups' breakdowns later.

Good luck to everyone! :(y)

Cool, I'm in. I'm pretty terrible at bridges so hopefully I can learn how to use them in this league while not getting beaten up too much.  :green-meeple:

Two tiles are drawn and players make bids, like in real life game. Just try it yourself in two players game (when both players are you :) ).

Boom! I'm in! It was weird not to be the person writing the first post for once!

My personal ambition is to use a castle to generate more than 3 points for once. >:(

Tonight I played a practice game of BC&B with danisthirty and Chooselife and we discovered that there are two CCCC tiles with bazaar in JCZ when there should be just one. MrNumbers, this is your first major crisis as league manager :)

Whoops! I did check the CAR but somehow missed the x2! Sorry, my bad. I must have been too excited about my victory in the game :)
