Carcassonne components sizing information

(1/5) > >>

From time to time, we get questions about the size of various components. The answers provided were always imprecise, so I decided to obtain the necessary equipment and do a proper study.

The Equipment

Digital caliper
Precision: 0.01mm
Limit: 150.00mm

Digital scale
Precision: 0.01g
Limit: 100g

Original Carcassonne and expansions

Scoring track: 259.2mm long x 178.2mm wide x 2.04mm thick (length and width are too large to caliper) - approx 65g (too large to weigh on digital scale; had to use a manual suspension hand scale)

Tower: 118.42mm wide x 66.12mm deep x 228mm tall (too tall to measure with caliper) - (too heavy; need a larger capacity scale)

Box: 233mm* wide x 233mm* tall x 65.10mm thick (I don't normally measure the box, but since it's meeple-shaped I thought somebody might be interested.)

* Measured with a ruler; may not be exact.

The Phantom

Meeples: 15.82mm wide x 15.85mm tall x 7.98mm thick - 1.43g
Box: 58.44mm wide x 58.82mm tall x 23.83mm thick - 23.15g (empty)

Naturally I couldn't resist and had to buy one of each color of the box.

The Dice Game

Dice: 15.94mm x 15.68mm x 15.77mm - 5.25g
Box: 110.00mm x 109.50mm x 41.61mm thick - 69.46g

I triple-checked the caliper measurements on the dice and got the same numbers each time. You would expect dice to be perfectly square, but apparently not. The dice line up perfectly with each other regardless of orientation, so you can't really tell the difference just by looking at them. The catapult face is opposite of the meeple face. To the right of the catapult is the CCFF joined face. Left of the catapult is CFCF (two opposing half-rounds). Above the catapult is CCCF, and below is CCFF unjoined. Each die is identical. Let's examine the faces more closely:

Catapult: 15.93mm x 15.86mm = 252.6498mm^2
Meeple is on opposing face and therefore same size.

CCFF joined: 15.86mm x 15.89mm = 252.0154mm^2
CFCF is on opposing face and therefore same size.

CCCF: 15.93mm x 15.71mm = 250.2603mm^2
CCFF unjoined is on opposing face and therefore same size.

The catapult and meeple faces are indeed the largest. The largest face will have a higher percentage of landing because the center of gravity is shifted in the die.

Those are the only ones I have at the moment, but I'll add more measurements as I purchase the games/expansions.

Joff has heard a rumor that the meeples from The Children of Carcassonne will be 23mm tall x 21mm wide.
scotty13 reports that the tiles are 7cm square.
According to GAKDragon, the travel Carcasonne tile bag is 18.5cm wide by 29cm tall.
