Personally, I voted for The River I, The River II and Traders and Builders

I think the River tiles give the game a fresh and constantly unique variation to the start of every new game, which I really enjoy! 

Traders and Builders adds another fun competition element to the game because it's random which tiles you draw  and the fact that you can steal those trade goods from an opponent by completing a city for them is always interesting (and sometimes Very frustrating)!  The Builder is kinda self explanatory... you can either drastically improve your score by gaining second turns Or have your Builder trapped by a cunning opponent while they continue to rack up their points with extra turns!  I love this expansion :)

PS:  You don't have to list which you voted for.  Feel free to leave your votes anonymous if you so choose... but I thought it'd be nice to hear some reasons Why some of you choose the way you do!

I think I would need a voting list with 5 or more beloved expansions...

I've voted for:

- Traiders and Builders (because of the pig and builder - I love wood)
- Princess and the dragon (because all the interesting discussion of the rules and also wood: the dragon and the fairy)
- the Messages (dispatches) - (really interesting rules - and I like the chaos at the score board  >:D)

Thank you for voting Kettlefish, and for also explaining why! 

I have yet to play The Messages, but it looks interesting :)

I agree, need top 5 for favorites! I chose River II, the Phantom, and the Ferries as those are always played regardless of what others are added. After those, it would be Traders & Builders and Princess & Dragon
PM me for for a list of remaining items from the Carcassonne Shoppe.

Inns & Cathedrals
Traders & Builders
Abbey & Mayor

I selected each of these because they add fairly simple wood and mechanics that don't necessarily rely on the addition of tiles. They can enhance the base game - as well as transcend all expansions. They are universal mechanics that add a depth to the game. If I could choose a 4th it would be Bridges, Castles & Bazaars because of the Bridge, then the Phantom 5th.  :D
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

I tried to some different pictures from google but they seem to show the same tiles. They might be speaking of the german and english version but that would be weird.  Anybody else knows whats going on?

You can find all about the Wind Roses in the CAR v6.4 pages 155-157.

That are two different versions of the Wind Rose tiles and rules.

Well my Original intention for this poll was to have people vote for their #1 favorite expansion, but while making the poll itself and actually typing out all those expansions (man there are a lot!) I realized that it was too hard to narrow my own favorites down to just 1 .  I considered a top 5, but some people may not have even played 5 of the expansions... I think 3 is the perfect number to narrow most anything down to.   Music, films, games, books...  Top 3 it is!!!
