Carcassonne Board Game Expansion 4 The Tower
In The Tower, the focus is on building up, not out. This expansion
for the classic Carcassonne tile-laying game adds eighteen Land tiles,
plus thirty tower floors that you can use to construct towers to spot
your opponents’ followers. Gain new actions as your towers grow taller
or deny your opponents these actions by placing a follower on top of a
tower to finish it. If your tower grows tall enough, disrupt other
players’ plans by capturing their followers and holding them for ransom!
The Tower gives players a direct, strategic method of interacting with
other players. When placing a tile depicting a foundation, the player
can place a tower floor on that tile or on any open tower on the board.
The player can then capture any other player's follower on the board
that is visible from the tower. Captured followers are only returned by
paying three victory points or “exchanging” prisoners with someone
holding one of your followers.
The Tower also makes it easier to keep
your play area in order. The Tile Tower accessory organizes your tiles
from the base game and expansions, making everything easy to access as
Only the base game is required to play with The Tower, no other expansions.
