my oddball pick was the Plague.

It is without doubt my favorite "mini" expansion. I really enjoy the cutthroat feel it has. It's not perfect by any means, but I love playing it.

I see that my choice matches others' choices :)
T&B - because of the great Builder,
A&M - many new elements, including my favorites - Abbey and barn,
Ferries - because of wonderful mechanics, not seen before and after.

I went with:

Inns & Cathedrals
Because I like the big follower and that the inns can actually make going for a road seem worthwhile.

Traders & Builders
Because the builder is great.

The Phantom
Because it's a really simple idea that can make a big difference on some occasions, and the meeple looks cool.

Quite standard choices, nothing too surprising! I almost voted for The Catapult, because most people seem to hate it but I have actually had quite a few fun games with it (if in the mood for something a bit silly) - it's not actually near my top 3 though.

I also really like bridges, but the bazaars let down that expansion in my opinion.

I went with I & C, T & B and King & Robber Baron. I like K & RB because it doesn't change the game significantly so is simple to play but provides a nice little bonus at the end for whoever has closed the largest city/ longest road. The first couple of times we played it it took ages to count all the completed roads/ cities so now we just say it's 10 points per tile.

My favorites are River II, Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders. These three are the "base set" to my games of Carcassonne. We usually add different mini expansions from this starting point.
Great idea for a poll "Doc"!

Yes it is a great idea.

But I wish more activity from more members.
We have here at CarcC more than thousand members and
till now only 16 voted in this poll...
Perhaps they have no favorite expansion?  ;D

My picks were:
-Traders and Builders
-Inns and Cathedrals
-The Ferries

Agree with earlier posts, in regards that these are simple fun mechanics that do not require a lot to learn.
  As for The Ferries, yes, the unique mechanics is what drew this to be my favourite as well.

And yet, the one expansion I have most of, is the Tower (3x) not counting 6x Phantoms  :meeple:

I went with the top three because I'm old school. I haven't played with at least half the expansions on that list.

Thank you Scott!  This is exactly why I figured choosing your top 5 would be a little much for some of the members :)

For me, I&C, T&B and The Plague. I find that the first two complement the base game so well that they are always played by default. I would have picked the River as well as it's pretty much a staple like the others.....but I find The Plague rather fun to spice up a game or two.

Oh, and hello! (I'm new  ^-^ )
