This is now an essential expansion just like Inns and Cathedrals and Traders and Builders. The few extra pieces in your meeple pile are a very welcome addition.

This Expansion Pack makes the original game all the more worth playing. It clearly solves the "hole" in the map problem, as well as adds whole new strategies for road, city, and farm competition. The new farming strategy alone makes this expansion worth it.

Our newest expansion, we were a little fuzzy on the strategy that the new expansion brought to the game. Having played with it a couple of times, I think that the Abbey pieces, the barns, and the wagons, when used judiciously, bring a certain BAM! factor (for lack of a better expression), altering the course of the game in sudden and unforeseeable ways.

The Abbey makes this set a must-have. The wagon is a very clever little gimmicky piece that's fun. The barn is good to try to nerf those super-farmers, if you have trouble with those.

The Abbey-tiles are perfect if you play with the 'Inns and Cathedrals' add-on. They reduce the influence of luck and enable you to plan a few steps ahead. The Mayor doesn't convince me but the whole add-on is definitely worth having.

Although I "broke" the barn, both the abbey and mayor are crucial to any multi-expansion game.

Not quite as good as some of the other expansions, but better than others. Still a lot of fun. It is growing on me as we try it in different combinations with the other expansions.

With "Inns & Cathedrals", "Abbey & Mayor" and "Builders & Traders" added, Carcassonne is pretty much the perfect game. Easy to teach, hard to master. The expansions add length, but they also add satisfying depth. For a quick game, I keep a separate set of just the base game tiles.

Must buy to add to the base game. The Abbey are must needed to get you out of those tough spot when you need just the right tile. The mayor is an extra dude to give you a big advantage to gain a contested city.

When you have played a lot, Carcy almost becomes automatic and almost a fight to control the farmers. This expansion makes you think again. The Barns are terrific - it brings the Farmers back to life again. Excellent.

Rated after one play. I love the new tiles and the new bits. I like dropping the abby into the blank spots, moving the wagon and scoring the farm with the barn, the mayor seems cool. In short, I love it. We tried it only with the base game, because we were short on time, can't wait to bust this out at game night, with t&b and i&c.

If T&B and I&C finished out the base game for the complete experience, A&M looks to elevate this to Carc 2.0. It seems every aspect of the game is impacted for the better and I can hardly wait to add this into the standard Carc package.

Another great expansion for Carcassonne and in my opinion making up for the Tower (BLECH) which I obviously don't like. LOVE the Wagon NEAT. The abbey tile being a wild is pretty cool too. Mayor I suppose he's got moments when he works but doesn't seem to happen too often. Love the new tiles too that loopy road is just cool.

Have tried this a few times now since buying in Dec 2007 and am getting more used to it. I love the barn which effectively means a field gets scored twice and I am finding the wagon more useful than I first thought it would be. A shame I can't say the same about the mayor who doesn't seem to add much. The abbey tile is a godsend

Very nice expansion. The farms really make you run for the meadows.With the abbey you finaly can close that big town and score the goods.

Some will say "yet another extension" but this one has one very original bit: the barn. The barn is a new way to score the farms, and believe it or not, everybody benefit from it.

It is also not that easy to use efficiently. More strategy than with regular farms.

2010-04-14 (rating 9):

Great expansion.

Wagon is quite nice addition. Properly used allows to place two followers in a single turn. With wagon scoring roads (even or maybe especially the short ones) is finally useful.


Mayor is less interesting. Nothing bad about him but it is just a special case of large follower. Nothing especially new here. Also it has too similar shape to the large follower. Why did they make it so? I don't know...


Abbey is interesting. Usually we keep them to the end of the game when we score for them just like with cloisters. However their nice closing property is useful. So they can be used as a threat of undesired closing or separating.


And last the best of the expansion. Barns. They change meadows scoring a lot. With barns fight over the good meadows is not so heavy. Also scoring of meadows is much faster. A player who often scores farmers against a good barn has large advantage over others.

Maybe not a "must have" in the Carcassonne universe, but it definetily adds some more twists to the basic game. The Abbey tiles themselves are reasons enough to buy it. By the way, I haven't recorded any plays, since I play with different type of tiles every time I play Carcassonne, and I always record them under the basic game.

I purchased this to augment the copy of the same expansion I have from the Big Box 3, as I also purchased complete sets of Meeples in 6 additional colors to boost the maximum players to 12 and I needed additional tiles from this expansion to complete that.
