The most aggressive version of Carcassonne
« on: April 22, 2020, 11:56:04 AM »
I was contemplating some vicious thoughts... what is the most aggressive, unforgiving, annoying, militant combination of expansion one can mix together and unleash the mayhem   :red-meeple:>:D >:D >:D :red-meeple: ?? Something that would only emerge, when a group of sadistic minds decides to have an all out war...
What I came up with is the following:
base game
Inns and cathedrals
Princess and dragon
Tower
The Plague
Tunnels
Flying machines
River II
Halflings II
Russian promos 2nd set
Labyrinth
Crop Circles I
Cult
Count of Carcassonne
Cathars, Siege, Besiegers (yes all 3)

- and the most important ingredient of all...concentration! The ratio of aggressive tiles / all tiles must be very high in order to achieve maximum evil >:D

I am open to any suggestions. What would you add? What would you remove? Whatever comes out of this I will one day masochistically try to play!

EDIT 2: included suggestions

I would add The Robbers, the Count, the Cult and the Catapult and remove the Russian promos.

The first set op Russian promos are not really "evil", they don't really allow for much evil play against your opponent.
The second set does allow for more "evil play", so those might be good to keep in there.
I would add the Crop Circles, as they can be used nicely here.
And the River 2 adds a volcano for the Dragon

Cult and Count are definately conflict type expansions. Catapult is annoying, but not that aggressive in my opinion (but feel free to prove me wrong :D)
I would keep Russian promos becuase its only four tiles, yet they can be very damadging, especially the second set.
I thought about robbers but I 'm not sure their effects are mean enough to warrant 8 tiles dilution.

You may be correct about the first set. I only kept them because I felt like the Bogatyr tile might extend the reach of Solovei Razboynik, but Labyrinths should be enough to do that.
Which version of Crop Circles do you think has a more potentially restrictive layout?

Sir, here you are... It is a fan expansion by Murphy013 that opens gates to hell with a demon that swallow all meeples around them in slow motion.  >:D

If we open the gate to fan expansions, you may try The Black Tower too...

It is a fan expansions by Joff that adds new behaviors to towers: they can alternate capturing meeples as usual or diagonally, and also you can block towers for good so they cannot grow in height anymore. You just need additional some tower pieces.  ;)

- Tower
- Bridges ( only the wooden bridges)
Small:
- Besiegers / cathers or any of those three
- Crop Circles
- Cult
- Count of Carcassonne
- Flying machines
- Halflings (1 or 2)
- 2x labyrinth
- Phantom
