Mini review on the latest Minis!
« on: August 12, 2013, 12:34:15 AM »
Hello! here's a mini review on the latest Carcassonne mini expansion after playing a few games with them with different expansions!.

I like the Corn Circles II alot, but generally work well with all other expansion other than Corn Circles I, as too much of them makes it too powerful!. The Gold mines worked generally well with all other expansions even though the icon on the tiles were a little weird to me. (I think they are too big!) The Messengers and Robber do not work well together as it makes the scoreboard look very confusing and crowded, especially with 6 players!. But they work okay with all other expansions if independent of one another. The Fliers was the second best expansion for me as it was simple and allow meeples to move to vacated spots. The best expansion was the Ferries as it is the most simple and fun expansion! Works very very well with Inns and Cathedral and also with Abbey & Mayor, Bridges Castles & Bazaars.

All in all, i encourage you all to purchase the minis as they are generally really good expansions!

Welcome to the forum, great review!

I agree with you on every point (although I haven't really tried the minis with many other expansions yet). I am especially jealous that you own corn circles I!

Don't feel jealousy, I bought Corn Circles 1 two months ago at ebay.de. The price about 20 $ + 5 $ shipping to USA
