Would you believe, this is my new fFavorite expansion? I play with a lot of tiles, and so a road that suddenly spans clear across the table is very appealing. And it's kinda cool, all around.

Not groundbreaking but a nice little add. Occasionally swings the Scout bonus.

An interesting expansion.

Tunnels allow much deeper control of roads value and scoring time. A tunnel can be used at least in two ways. First is to make rapidly a long road and gain Scout. Second is to capture opponents follower on a road (by connecting his road to your own tunnel without ever making the other connection.

So basically this is expansion is aimed towards increase of roads importance. And I think it is good as roads are somewhat worse than cities.


The bad side is that this expansion does not scale well. You cannot play with two copies of it since the marker chits will repeat. But only 4 tunnel tiles in a large pool of tiles (when playing with other expansions) is too little.


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

Now THIS little expansion really adds some tactical strategy. It basically links up more roads utilizing paired chips for entrance and exit of tunnels. I just imported from Germany and is well worth it.

Only adds four new tiles to the base game but when combined with other expansions (Princess & Dragons for instance) there can be more tiles that are used as tunnels. A nice small expansion that makes roads more valuable since you can chain together longer roads (which makes Inns a big point draw). By itself, Der Tunnel is fine; but when paired with a larger expansion there are many more possibilities for tunnels to use and many more points available.

With only two players it is either extend your road or block someone else's. But with more players, there is more competition to become part of a long road.

It adds variety to Carcassonne in a fairly unobtrusive way. Now, tunnels are open-ended entities that can only be continued by connecting matching tunnel chips that will cause the road to continue (and allow it to complete!).

A very clever little expansion. The Tunnel allows you to connect widely separated road segments. Works nicely with the King mini-expansion. You can pull some nice surprise moves for the longest road bonus.

I like it a lot, but the tunnel markers are a bit small and hard to see, and the rules make this expansion slightly broken. It's possible to use the tunnels to trap your opponent's meeple on a road that he will never be able to complete.

The tunnels have very little effect overall. The best way to use these is to give 3 sets to each player in a 2 player game, 2 to each player in a 3 player game, and simply take tiles out to accommodate 4 and 5 players so there are only 8 and 10 tunnel entrances.

Only four tiles. And frankly said - I could live without it. It was added to the Spielbox Magazine, and as a subsrciber I just got it. Nothing special - another mini add-on. Based on a nice idea though.

Four new tiles and tunnel markers for each player. It doesn't do too much, but doesn't make the game longer either. Maybe two sets of this would have more of an impact on the game. Best when combined with a "meeplekiller" feature, such as the tower or dragon.

This mini-expansion isn't all that useful or interesting. Other than chances to give yourself a slightly longer road to score, it seems that the main purpose is to doom an opponent to be on a "road to nowhere."

Harmless, but I don't know how often we'll use it.

Just four tiles in this expansion and being road-related, they really don't have a big impact on the game. I can't recommend it as adding much to the experience.

Another relatively pointless expansion. The tunnels add very little to the game but complication. Roads are very inefficient scoring so there's not much sense to focusng on them. Rules are anything but intuitive in comparison to basic Carcassonne.
