Adds a great little way to make big castles almost worthless. But i have found it can make cities worth a little bit too much when it comes to farming.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

This is probably my favorite expansion because of it's rarity (at least in the States) and it's influence on the game.

One of the best expansions to Carcassonne. It adds a whole new layer of depth and strategy to the game. Who would have thunk that merely four tiles would add so much! Highly recommended, if you can find it for a decent price or make your own tiles. When I play without it, I sorely miss it.

Update August 2006 - I miss it so much when we play without that I've taken to buying this set for my Carc friends. It's easier than digging my tiles out. If I were smarter, I'd just buy a spare set of my own to take with me.

I bought this a while back when Funagain had the magazine in stock. Sure, it is expensive for what it is. However, we really like what it adds to the game, so it has become a part of our "standard" Carcassonne box. Still, this is really about our limit as far as confrontation goes in this game. We are happy enough with our current "standard" that I cannot see us getting any further expansions in the neat future.

Not nearly as influential to the game as we thought it might be -- which is both good and bad. Better to err on the side of caution, and it does that.

Adds a little head-to-head nastiness to regular Carc. It would be good to have tiles like these ones that you could add to a field to de-value the farmers. Locusts, anyone?

The smallest expansion, even smaller than the "King" part of Carcassonne: King & Scout. It is four tiles which were initially given away with an issue of Spielbox magazine in Germany, and later included in Der Carcassonne Almanach, which was published by Spielbox.

Each of the four tiles shows a city under siege and has what appears to be a monk icon on it.

Any city with one of these tiles now only scores half points when completed and an incomplete city is worthless. However, completed cities which include one or more Katherer tiles are worth double points to the farmer(s) which supply them.

Meeples in the city may be removed if there is a monastery directly adjacent to the Katherer tile. The player may remove one meeple from the city at the end of their turn and return it to their supply.

It doesn't add a whole lot to the game, but it doesn't break anything, either. I got mine for a great price (free) and wouldn't recommend paying much for it unless you are a completist.

2010-04-14 (rating 8.5):

An interesting expansion.


A good way to spoil opponent's city or to add a "double city" to your own meadow. However there are only 4 such tiles so one has to be really lucky to have it in time to spoil opponent's city. Or play with multiply copies of this expansion.


Also I don't like expansions attached to a magazine which is not distributed world wide.

O Cerco é uma mini-expansão muito rara e por isso pouco utilizada, contudo, a sua jogabilidade é muito interessante, bem como a contextualização, que está relacionada com a história da própria cidade de Carcassonne, recuando a factos do Século XIII. É uma espécie de “anti-catedral”, pois se um jogador controlar uma cidade que inclua uma ou mais peças desta expansão, ela passa a valer menos um ponto por tile, seja em que momento for, incluindo no final do jogo, ou seja, se não for concluída nada vale. O mais interessante é que uma cidade sob cerco, se concluída, de nada vale aquando da pontuação dos terrenos. Gosto e recomendo!
