General / Additional meeples for multiple basegames
« on: January 21, 2020, 01:10:02 AM »
Hi everyone,

I wanted to know how many meeples you normally add when just adding basegames.
Last time we played a big game with multiple expansions, so there were a few extra wooden figures and we had the Tower to retrieve a few meeples, but I can imagine having a shortage of meeple when playing without retrieval opportunities like the Tower, Catapult, Princess or Dragon.
Since I still like a big game of Carcassonne, but don't want it to be too overwhelming for new players, I thought about just playing with multiple basegames (I have 5, but want to keep at least 1 separate to not have any sorting issues).

Additionally I was thinking about starting with a Mega-River (River 1 CIIx3, River 3 CIx1, River 2 CIIx1 CIx2), but maybe having a marked set of meeple only to be used during the river phase (since you wouldn't be claiming too many features otherwise or would have too many meeple afterwards when adding just additional figures)

Any thoughts?
I was thinking 2 or 3 meeple per additional basegame (still only one Abott) and one set (7/8 meeple) for a big '7-river phase'
