Totally ridiculous, but still entertaining, and not too disruptive. I would like it more if I actually changed my strategy based on the existence of the catapult, but really I just played like normal and occasionally something random would happen. Some of the new tiles are pretty cool though, like the three-way road where only one road has a dead-end.

Surprisingly fun, but certainly not something you'd want to use every time you played.


If you're thinking of rating this low out of spite or simply on "principle", don't be a dick:

*BOING* Launch chits at the meeples! Use a mini-catapault to knock out meeples (even your own!), or see who can get closest to the target, or fling stuff at the other players. An amusing and different dynamic to the game. Our house rule will also allow you to (temporarily) take out the dragon!

I've enjoyed the silliness of the catapult much more than anyone I played the game with, but I never felt that Carcassone was a very serious game - so for me the catapult seemed to fit in just fine.

I would have rated it a 10, if you were actually launching meeples instead of these ugly tokens...

While the Catapult is certainly one of the worst expansions for Carcassonne, it is still a fun expansion for one of my favorite games and so an addition I'm happy to have. For "serious" gamers this should be passed over, but if you like to have a few laughs as you play add it in once in awhile.

Rating reflects playing with my 11 years old daughter - we had a really nice time with this, and some good laughs. Adds a twist of nonsense to the standard game - people who take the game (and winning) seriously will likely hate this ;-)

Free your mind and enter into the silliness of it and you'll have a great laugh. If you're a bit uptight and take things too seriously then this expansion is not for you.

This expansion is getting a lot of flack and I understand peoples disdain for it. However, I like it and enjoyed it for what it is. It has nothing to do with tile laying. I knew this before I bought it. It has a certain luck element with very little to no strategy. I knew that before I bought it. I enjoyed playing with it because lo and behiold it's fun. It's a pain in the ass to use, but it's still fun.

Adds a new dimension to they game. Makes it much more fun with kids. I quite like it. There are new choices to make, lots of anticipation hoping a faire is drawn and a chance you might make a game changing play with the unreliable catapult.

Play this with just the base set and it's good for some laughs. This may be the best way to play Carc with 4+ players; with that many, it's hard to have a very balanced game, so you may as well make it crazy.

I score this a seven because it is daft and makes my partner and I chuckle. The fact that the catapault doesn't actually work that well actually makes it more fun. I am aware that it adds an element of dexterity to a tile laying game, etc. etc. and don't care. It is simply a good laugh.

Catapult works better if you add a small 1/4" (1cm) wooden block that you can put under the catapult - to angle it for more forward trajectory.

Be sure to put the token just under the designated area on the catapult or else you can't play with this at all. Also Don't play it with more than 3 players. Just drags things out.

What can I say... this expansion is fun. Feel free to incorporate it into your other games as well.

This expansion always seems to get bad joss - I don't know if it is just because of the design but I find it does relax a round so it's just a bit of fun. If you place the tokens underneath the bar and not above it they fly better.

Catapult tiles require each player to try and fling a cardboard token at the board or one another using a balsa wood spring contraption. Hitting targets requires practice.

HUGE PLUS: Ridiculous expansion. Adds total chaos, in a fun way.

Sorprende la valentía de esta nueva entrega. Pero supera todas las expectativas, pues realmente introduce un tipo de mecánica no muy corriente en juego de tablero, como es la habilidad. Lo hace de una manera mas que elegante y convierte al carcassonne en una especie de carcassonne-war muy dado a la revancha y a las malas intenciones.

[RGG 08 edition] IMHO, this is not a bad expansion. It does provide something fresh for Carcassonne and is very attractive for children although it makes the basic game a little bit longer and would disrupt the game flow. The only problem is that the fun fades after a few plays.

The illustration is cute and is very thematic

I really enjoyed this light hearted expansion to Carcassonne. I saw this demonstrated at Essen '08 and I have no idea how the lady managed to get direct hits on her tiles... she must have practised for days.

It adds a nice fun element to the game, and most of the tokens allow for others to join in when they are used which adds a nice element of retribution depending upon which tile you choose. I do not think it will be an expansion that you will use every time you play like the River or King but it will certainly make an outing for a less serious bash at Carcassonne. My gaming group are certainly looking forward to taking someone's eye out with it.

Players who do not like their unused neatly stacked Meeple acrobatic display teams being knocked over should avoid this.
