The 10th expansion (Under the Big Top) - poll
« on: March 09, 2017, 09:40:05 AM »
This is a poll to determine how people feel about, and whether they will buy, the upcoming Under the Big Top (Circus) expansion for Carcassonne in the new artwork.

I probably left out some obvious option like I always do, but don't you worry about that. Instead:

The worst part about it is the theme.  With that aside, just looking at the rules, it has to be better than expansions 4, 6 and 7.   Right? Right?  I am cautiously optimistic.

Sadly I had to vote not interested.  On the bright side, it does make the hurt of no more old art tiles sting a little less, seeing this be the first major expansion not to come out in the old style.  Would have been a tough call to make had it been a really cool expansion.

Let's see if it is in the next Big Box.

Also voted for - I'm not that excited about it but I will buy it anyway

I hope it isn't in the Big Box nor do i think it would be included. I just don't think the expansion will be very poplar and they seem to go for more standard inclusion in the BB series.

We're way behind, on this side of the Pond on C2 expansions anyway so I expects its going to be awhile before we see either the Big Top or BB6.

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

They seem to always put the most recent expansion in the BB.

BB6 in any language for me.  We all know the rules!

Anyway, I will probably buy the expansion eventually, but not anytime soon. The mechanics are okay, but not great (better than Catapult or Wheel of Fortune, but not much else). And the new art really turns me off. My partner really doesn't like the theme at all, so I may instead just fan-make something or re-appropriate the Catapult tiles to make this expansion without buying it. I guess I'm just not sure.

I also voted in the 'not interested' camp. I could eventually move to the Big Box 6 camp because Big Boxes are a good deal, but still, I doubt I would want to drop €50+ on something I don't really want when I can just blow that money on whatever Kickstarter game Chooselife wants me to back instead.

I voted other because the rules seem interesting, at least I would give them a try, but not with the elements of this expansion. I would rather adapt them for the catapult tiles (since they also include circus tents).  :D
Actually it would be nice to have the circus tent figure and the director meeples but I can find substitutes for them from other expansions or games.

I'm in the same camp like JB, too. The rules might be intriguing, but nothing to really blew my mind. But new artwork and theme both turns me off. And I also think, I have enough variety in Carcassonne for the rest of my life, and there are so many other games, I could get instead (though I'm not into that kickstarter hunting), that the new design pretty sure cut off my interest in further expanding Carcassonne anyway.

I will probably buy it when it comes out. Im not thrilled by the mechanics or theme but do want to give it a try. I am not gonna buy a big box in new artwork, because i dont like it and dont want a base game in it. So ill probably buy the expansion and use it in my games every now and then

I won't be purchasing it, so I'm on the 'Not interested and not buying it' poll option.

In an ideal super completionist world, I'd probably pick it up if it was within a new edition Big Box, however I don't think I could justify it when 1) I don't think I want to get Carcassonne and all it's expansions again 2) The theme seems to be 'jumping the shark' to me so it's a turn-off (at least the terrible Catapult was at least somewhat medieval-themed!) and finally 3) my Wife will kill me if I get duplicate (in her eyes) Carcassonne-based board games, taking up even more shelf space! :p

I kinda feel like I've completed my (1st edition) collection  so I'm happy without. Having said that, in a few years time, if I see a 2nd edition big box featuring multiple completely new expansions for a very cheap price................maybe.
