I have just received my copy of the new Carcassonne Minis expansions. My friend, Erik, also received his copies! So we played "Halloween Carcassonne" with four players: Erik, Erik's son Ian, Steve, and myself (Don).

We played with the base game, and all of the minis, which also includes the six tiles of Carcassonne: Corn Circles II. I also have many sets of meeples including the character meeples from Meeple Source. I have the following meeples: ninjas, pirates, zombies, and monsters. I also have princes and camouflage meeples, but obviously we did not use them.

Erik played the green zombies
Ian played the black ninjas
Steve played the blue monsters
Don played the white pirates

The rules were in German, but we had English translations for the six mini-expansions. However, we were not sure about the Crop Circles rules and looking back on what we did, we played them incorrectly.

So here is our game in progress with pictures at various points during the game.

Pirates and ninjas and monsters and zombies, oh my!
The house was wonderfully decorated for Halloween by Erik's wife, Judi.
Black table cover; orange pumpkin decorative towels and mats; Judi always has that great thematic touch!
The orange witch on the black table cover looks especially nice!

As a group, we really liked the features of the new expansions.
The Fliers allowed meeples to fly into new territory and were very fun!
The Messages allow for the potential of many points.
Gold Mines produce gold bars which add a few points, but are not significant scores.
A properly placed witch or mage can increase scoring by 50% on one feature.
The Robbers also had potential for scoring big.
The Ferries, with an interesting twist in the rules, lead to some longer scoring roads.

When ordering games, we try to order as a group, often to get free shipping!
Since two of us ordered the minis, they came shipped with the display box!
Messengers were ready and waiting.
Robbers have already appeared on the scoring track.

And he misses, with a roll of three -- a one in six chance!

About this point of the game, we realized we were playing the Crop Circles incorrectly -- we did not realize that the player can only add a meeple to a feature of a specific type, based on the crop circle.

Getting near the end of the game. We realized that almost all of our meeples were near the edges.


I also wanted to play with "The School" expansion, but I forgot!

We had considered playing with "The Plague" expansion, but I am glad that we did not.
Just learning all the rules of the several expansions was enough.
Otherwise, it all becomes a blur.

After the last tile was played!
Getting ready to proceed with the final scoring.


Summary:
The six mini-expansion were great, collectively.
The jury is still out on the Crop Circles, since we played those incorrectly.

We thought the rules were a little vague about final scoring. We decided not to give points messengers and robbers during final scoring. We did count the regular meeple and messenger together to get final scores:
Don the Pirate = 189
Erik the Zombie = 172
Steve the Monster = 135
Ian the Ninja = 122

Our group has still not played with: The Plague and The School, so we will incorporate them into our next game session.

Both Erik and I own all of the expansions, except for the original Crop Circles and La Porxada. Someday, we hope, to try a marathon Carcassonne game with all of the expansions!
