Zimbra Posted August 4, 2013 Share Posted August 4, 2013 I bought my girlfriend Carcassonne for Christmas and now we play it 2-3 times a week. We've invested in 3 of the expansions so far: Traders & Builders, Inns & Cathedrals, and The Princess & The Dragon. Traders & Builders is by far the best of the three; stealing resources from someone else's city never gets old. Inns & Cathedrals is good, but can be unbalancing. It's possible to basically win by building one big city. Princess & The Dragon is just OK, although I think it might be more enjoyable with more than two players. Also playing with more than 2 expansions at once makes the game a bit unwieldy, both in terms of the time and the space it takes up. We've also been playing a fair bit of Gloom. It's fun, but it feels like there should be a bit more variety in the gameplay and cards. I suppose the expansions would help with that, but I'm not sure I like it enough to invest more in it. I keep almost-buying Descent, but I'm not sure I could get 5 people together on a regular enough basis to make it a worthy investment. It does look right up my alley, though.
