The Count lives in and stalks the four quarters of Carcassonne, waiting for the right time to strike! The tiles depict the beautiful city of Carcassonne and are placed at the beginning of the game instead of the normal start tile.
Whenever a player places a tile that results in others scoring (but not themselves), they may place a meeple in one of the four quarters of the city. They can also move the Count to another quarter, imprisoning all meeples unfortunate enough to become his victims. Eek!
In addition, each quarter corresponds to a feature type, meaning a player may move their meeple to a specific feature to gain points or even prevent another player from scoring!
The mini expansion is brand new and contains 12 landscape starting tiles, a brilliant purple wooden Count meeple and the mini box for them to go in. The printed English rules are included. The original Carcassonne artwork is featured, playable with both the new and original versions of the base game.
