The best Carcassonne expansions 2022

We have selected the best Carcassonne expansions for you. The offer ranges from quite a few new cards to additional game pieces as well as new game elements. So every game of Carcassonne will be different.

As with all Carcassonne expansions, they can be combined with each other in any way. Sometimes some combinations of expansions require an interpretation of the rules, since the basic rules do not take these special cases into account - but this has never led to problems with us. The only thing to watch out for is whether you have the new or old version of the game - here the look differs a bit.
