Carcassonne Big Box 6*

Carcassonne Big Box 6 is a comprehensive edition of the beloved tile-laying game Carcassonne, combining the base game with its two major expansions and several mini-expansions into one grand package. Players build the landscape of a medieval fortress city one tile at a time, placing their followers on roads, cities, cloisters, and fields to gather points. This edition not only includes the core game that has captivated millions worldwide but also enriches the experience with expansions that introduce new tiles, mechanics, and strategies.

Gameplay Overview

  • Tile Placement: Players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on the board. Tiles may feature cities, roads, monasteries, fields, or a combination, and must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera.
  • Meeple Deployment: After placing a tile, the player can choose to deploy one of their meeples on one of the areas on it: knight on the city, thief on the road, monk in the monastery, or farmer in the field.
  • Scoring: Points are scored for completed cities, roads, monasteries, and connected fields at the end of the game, with uncompleted structures also scoring a reduced amount.

Special Features

  • Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders: These expansions add new tiles, large meeples, and goods tokens, introducing new layers of strategy with inns along roads and cathedrals in cities for bonus points, and trade goods for extra scoring opportunities.
  • Mini-Expansions: The six mini-expansions add variety and fun twists to the gameplay with new specific tiles and rules, such as flying machines that allow for distant tile placement, and gold mines that can yield extra points.
  • Integrated Mini-Expansions: The River and The Abbot mini-expansions are included with the base game, offering new starting tile configurations and new strategies involving gardens and abbeys.


Carcassonne Big Box 6 is the ultimate collection for both newcomers to the world of Carcassonne and veterans looking to expand their game with new expansions and mini-expansions.
