Because if Carcassonne needs anything it's MORE SIMPLICITY! shake

It's moisture farming, so it's very different than real farming.

Maybe it has nerf herding instead.

Carc to a NON-GAMER is NOT a simple thing. I've seen people walk away and throw down the rules in confusion.

This is targetted at Star Wars fans. Not gamers.

I wouldn't say the rules are simplified although farming has been omitted which some new players seem to struggle with. It is more complex than the base game. Majority control is now determined by dice rolling with the highest rolled number rather than the sum determining the winner. Players get dice equal to the number of followers in the dispute plus additional ones for using the large follower and matching Faction symbols. Players can claim Planets (the new Cloisters) by simply placing a tile adjacent to it and deciding to occupy the Planet instead of a feature on the placed tile even if that Planet is occupied.

I am thinking the same. And this "Disney" version is a very
nice way to introduce new players to it, even though it is not the same.
I even got some friends to play with us only because of the Star Wars-Theme.
And usually, they don´t play boardgames at all...

After that, they are maybe ready to be introduced to the socalled "real" Carcassone
