A Storybook World
Enter a realm of chivalry and sorcery with this Carcassonne expansion. The Princess sends knights out to perform acts of chivalry; meanwhile, a fearsome dragon threatens followers unprotected by the magic of the fairies! The Princess & The Dragon expansion introduces princesses, dragons, fairies, and other storybook elements that add surprising wrinkles to your Carcassonne game. You can use thirty new tiles to unleash a dragon that devours anyone in its path, summon a fairy to protect your followers, or remove rival knights from a city. No matter what tile you draw, you’ll have plenty of options to disrupt your opponents’ plans and claim more points for yourself.
Reshape The Landscape
With The Princess & The Dragon, players can affect followers like never before. Draw a Volcano and the dragon appears! This isn’t too bad on its own, but drawing a Dragon tile subsequently sends the dragon on a rampage across the countryside, devouring any followers in its path. Also, when the Princess tile is played, she can remove a knight from a city to open more scoring opportunities. Things aren’t all bad for followers, though. The fairy protects your followers from the dragon and scores you bonus points when your turn begins and when you score features. Furthermore, if you’re lucky enough to draw the Magic Portal, you can place a follower on any previously placed tile. By incorporating these dynamic new components into your game, The Princess & The Dragon is sure to shake up your Carcassonne experience!
