From far and wide, people flock to the big red tent that travels across the countryside. Drawn by whispers of exotic animals and high-flying performers, some of these onlookers might even be tempted to leave their normal lives behind and join the show themselves. A new world of excitement awaits them in Under the Big Top, the tenth expansion for legendary tile-laying game Carcassonne!
Capturing the thrill of the circus, Under the Big Top incorporates twenty new land tiles and two new types of meeples into the Carcassonne library. This new expansion allows players to attract people from all over to view their menagerie of animals or witness death-defying stunts of acrobatic skill. And just like the daring risks taken by circus performers, Under the Big Top provides players opportunities to score big points…if they can draw in the crowds, that is.
he big top is the circus’ main attraction and that’s no exception in Under the Big Top. Much of the expansion centers on clustering groups of meeples around the new tiles with the hope of scoring big points when their features are scored. Using the twelve new Circus tiles, players are rewarded for gathering their meeples around the new big top figure.
As soon as a Circus tile is placed, a facedown Animal token is placed on it and the big top is placed over this token. When another circus tile is played, each player scores points equal to the number of their meeples on the circus tile or the eight tiles surrounding it, multiplied by the number on the Animal token. If this token ends up being the rare elephant, you'll score big!
The air is full of excitement as the tent goes up. It brings with it a whole new dimension to the world of Carcassonne. Who will put on the best show and draw the biggest crowd?
