German Monasteries expands on the monasteries from the base game, allowing players to score points by using meeples as monks or abbots!
When placing a German Monastery, players can choose from two options. Firstly, they can place a meeple to act as a monk. Points are then scored later for the monastery itself and all adjacent tiles, up to a maximum of 9 points.
Secondly, players can choose to put a meeple on its side on a monastery, turning it into an abbot. At the end of the game, abbots score a point for the German Monastery and every tile leading away from it in a straight line, for a potentially large bonus!
The mini expansion is brand new and contains 6 beautiful landscape tiles featuring iconic monasteries in Germany: Andechs, Eberbach, Lorch, Maria Laach, Marienthal and Mailbronn.
The English and German rules are included inside the shrink wrapping. The new Carcassonne artwork is featured, playable with both the original and new versions of the base game.
