Carcassonne: The School

School is in session in Carcassonne! This mini expansion has players competing to complete the roads leading up to the school. When they do, the teacher will get them points the next time anything is scored, regardless of what is scored and which player scored those points. Once all of the roads are complete, there are enough students and the teacher stays put for the rest of the game.

Carcassonne: The Festival

It’s time to celebrate! In this mini expansion for Carcassonne, you have the ability to withdraw a meeple. When you play a festival tile, choose between placing a meeple normally or withdrawing a meeple from another feature. Decide if your meeple should join the festivities or return to your supply for new work.

Sylvion: Below Ground

The land itself joins the fight with the Ravage in this mini expansion for Sylvion. This pack includes sixteen Terrain cards that occupy the spaces of the battlefield. When you wish to play a Tree card or Fountain card on a space the battlefield occupied by a Terrain card, you must reveal that Terrain card. The Swallower will quickly gobble up your Tree or Fountain card, but the Owl allows you to draw two cards from the Defender deck. Shift the battlefield with the Below Ground expansion!
