Is this strictly about the expansions, or will there be a choice for those who don't like any of them?

Vote "I don't like any of the expansions".

What I don't understand about questions like this is what they accomplish that isn't better served by the BGG ratings. You have thousands of votes saying that Inns & Cathedrals is the favourite, followed closely by Traders & Builders... isn't that better information than the handful replies you'll get in a thread like this?

For the record, Traders & Builders is the best expansion as it adds important strategic elements without being fiddly or random. But Inns & Cathedrals is also essential. The River is the worst because it encourages people to treat the game like a jigsaw puzzle (yawn).

There appears to be a choice for "none" under question 1.

But yet, there is no such option for "least favorite"? I will say that's moot for me, as I don't have a least favorite, but somehow, the poll feels incomplete without it.

Then don't vote! I didn't write the poll - I just suggested one might be needed.

Despite the quote, my inquiries were rather directed at everyone + the poll creator. Even then, it's still off. So far, the vast majority don't seem to have a favorite

I'm taking too much into this poll at a level I shouldn't be at, so enough of that.

Instead of a number rating it gives people a chance to discuss why you like or dislike a certain expansion. Plus I would rather have feedback from those who like the game to begin with. I would assume if you watch the Carcassonne forum you like the game. The BGG ratings could be from those who hate euro games, and it takes a broader range of opinion.

I like Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders.

When playing with new people you can leave the tiles in the mix and just ignore the inns, cathedrals, and the commodities. I also leave out the pig and builder, and use the big meeple for scoring. After a learning game, you can then add in the rest of things as you see fit.

I've tried the river a few times, but usually just leave it out.

Yeah, I tossed around the idea of doing it for the second, as well, but I couldn't think of a symmetrical wording to the first one ("I don't like any expansions"). Now, of course, I realize I could have put "I like all expansions equally" but it's too late for that. I guess you could just figure it out by subtracting the number who answered the first half but not the last half. I'd edit the poll if I could, sorry.

I think a poll which doesn't involve Inns or Traders could be much more informative, since too many people consider them to be an obligatory part of the base game...
