CARCASSONNE IN PAIRS (an original idea from carcassonne.cat)
« on: January 09, 2022, 06:17:28 AM »
Carcassonne.cat invented this tournament format and organized its first tournament for pairs in May 2018. We even edited a video that proves it on youtube:



Later in May 2018, other associations from outside Catalonia copied this tournament format and wanted to make it their own. But it’s clear that the intellectual property of this tournament format belongs to Carcassonne.cat.
We have no problem with other associations, shops, clubs, etc… organizing a tournament for pairs. All we ask is that you make a small reference to Carcassonne.cat as the intellectual author of this tournament format.

RULES

1. The game will follow the basic rules of the Carcassonne game, both in terms of rules and points, with the only two exceptions of points 5 and 7.
2. Teams will be formed in pairs, who will play together all the games they have to play in the tournament.
3. The games must be exactly 4 players per table, 2 teams placed alternately around the table, with the players of each team facing each other.
4. Any communication between the pairs of the team itself, whether verbal or gestural, which may alter the normal development of the game is strictly prohibited.
5. Whoever is the starting player will have to play the starting tile and will be able to place Meeple on a regular basis.
6. Players will play and add points with their own Meeples, as in a normal game.
7. Each team will count as their final score the lowest score of the 2 players on the team. In the event of a tie between the two teams, the highest score of the two teams to be drawn will be counted. In the strange case that there is a multiple tie ... whoever says "Trinco, Trinco" before, will be the winner.

Please feel free to make a comment and share this variant very funny of the game. You should try it!

Nice. I like it. So it has to be really cooperative due to smallest score of player from team is consider as score of team.

Thanks for sharing, and congratulations!

It's very much like the Dream Team tournament we held a few years ago.

Welcome to the forums Carcassonne.cat, and thanks for sharing your idea.

Indeed. The only difference I can see is that we took the combined score of the 2 players rather than the lowest individual score, and we stuck to the rule that you can't meeple the start tile. I would have liked to have been able to have done so, but we were playing online via JCloisterZone which didn't allow that at the time.

Also, congrats on reaching 6200 posts Decar! :(y)

How did you catch up so quickly? Have you been writing messages to yourself again?

I learned from the best!

I think last year's musing helped.  I should really move those posts over from BGG, especially as anything posted there becomes the property of every member.

Well. Still not able to place meeple on start tile. But never say never. How does it works? You can place tile and place meeple on starting tile and first tile, or first player place on start tile his meeple and turn is moved to another player which place first tile from deck?

Usually that means that the first player gets to place on the start tile, so they miss step 1 and 2. But I like your other idea too, so the first player has the choice of 2 tiles to place on.

The idea of ​​using the starting tile is simply so that all 4 players have the same number of turns. Since there are only 71 tiles without the starting one. With the start it would be 72.
The strategy with this modality is to play cooperatively trying that neither of the two players on the team is far behind in points.
Thanks for the feedback to all of you.  :yellow-meeple:

Ok. So logic is like start tile is on top of deck and first player place first tile on deck anywhere he want and place there a meeple. This sounds simple. Ok. I will spoke with farin about it.
