Under the Big Top, Carcassonne’s 10th expansion, introduces all the fine of the circus through new scoring opportunities, unique ideas, and a ringmaster meeple to organise all the fun! Roll up! Roll up! Come one, come all and see the circus in full swing!
Under The Big Top introduces much quicker scoring mechanics and throws a whole load of new ways to play at you! Play well enough and you may just be centre stage when scoring! Set up the Big Top and display the talented animals! These tiles rely on having as many meeple from any walk of life around the Big Top token before it moves. When it moves, players score for every meeple around it with the multiplier linking to the animal tile hidden underneath it! From mice to mighty elephants, you should aim to have as many farmers, knights and highwaymen surround the tent before it moves on!
Come see the acrobats in action! Place an acrobat tile to start stacking these talented entertainers and see them in action! Players can place an acrobat where there is a spare space instead of placing on their just laid tile for big points! Or place the ringleader centre stage as a normal meeple to score extra points for every Circus feature around him! New tactics, new concepts and more fun!
Under the Big Top relies on no other Carcassonne expansions and therefore only requires the core game to play. The play focuses making use of the new tiles to collect quick points within the standard game whilst competing in all the standard Carcassonne ways! So, why are you still reading this? Don’t waste any more time or you might miss the show!
