From the Manufacturer

In this expansion from the prize-winning Carcassonne, we move into the realm of fantasy. The land around Carcassonne is being visited by a dragon, making life very difficult for the followers. Brave heroes venture forth to face the danger, but without the aid of the fairies, their chances are not good. In the city, the princess seeks help from the knights, and farmers build secret passages to move about undetected by the dragon. We hope you enjoy this special trip into the land of Carcassonne.

Princess & Dragon adds an element of random disaster to Carcassonne. The primary addition to game play is a dragon that "eats" pieces, removing them from play. Secondary aspects include, a fairy to protect players from the dragon's attack, magic portals that allow players to teleport to other available map features, and princess tiles to help opportunists capture an opponent's incomplete city.

The Dragon element can be fun and does make for some tense situations as you wait to see if a dragon tile is coming out of the bag, but I find it only really adds to game play of four or more players.

The secondary aspects offer limited enjoyment and really don't add much to game play aside from complicating strategy and making the game last longer.

Overall, I consider it to be one of the lesser Carcassonne expansions and don't play with if very often. It is best suited for a more experienced player looking to add something new to the game. For newer players, I recommend purchasing Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, and Abbey & Mayor before picking up Princess & Dragon.

Me and my wife to be love Carcassonne. We've been playing for over a year and have an even record over 50 games later. So after a lot of games, I began buying some expansions. We like all of them. But the one that has added the most amount of fun to the game is Princess and the Dragon.

The pieces for this game are hight quality and quite a bit of fun. They are a fairy and a dragon. The fairy gives you a point if she is on your follower at the begining of your turn and gives you a 3 point bonus if you finish a road or building and she is on it. She also protects you from being eaten.

The dragon appears when a volcano tile is placed and moved when a piece with a dragon on it appears. The dragon must move 6 spaces, with each player taking turns with it's movement. This part is the most fun! Trying to set up the movements so you trap a person into eating his own followers is great strategy but quite a bit unpredictable.

With just the right ammount of luck and strategy, this is our favorite expansion yet. Carcassonne is a great game that just gets better.

This is a nice expansion to the Carcassone game - especially for 2 players, as it adds the possibility of having pieces removed from the board before they can score. That also means the opportunity to steal points from your opponent.

However, the rules to this one are a bit overly complex. There is a lot of "do this instead of what you would normally do" making a lot of things to think about and a lot more decisions to make every turn. That makes the game last longer, as each turn takes longer. The rules are also somewhat ambiguous on a few points, especially when mixing with some of the other Carcassone expansion.

I don't recommend combining this with the Tower expansion, in the same game. Our last one took over 2 hours for 3 players! Both expansions are fun on their own, though. I think I'll alternate a few games.

On the whole this is the least successful of the various expansions I have tried, and really does not work when there are only two playing (which is the normal circumstance with me). We adapted it by adding the extra tiles into the bag (minus volcanoes) but only paying attention to the magic portal tiles, i.e. all the other tiles were just extras for the fun of having more, and weirder shaped, tiles in the game. The builders and traders expansion adds much more to the game.

This is by far my favorite expansion for Carcassonne. It puts a fun little twist on the game and makes it a tad more challenging. Your meeples can be kicked off the board by the Dragon, thus taking away any rights you had to any field, or castle or road. You can block the dragon with the princess, but you can only move her certain times. Great, fun expansion.

The P & D expansion for Carcassonne is a great addition to the basic game & adds a whole new dimension of strategy. You get a ton of new game tiles that serve many purposes, plus a dragon game piece & a princess game piece (called a fairy in the rules for some reason). The basic idea is that when then dragon moves, he "eats" any Meeples he comes into contact with unless they are protected by the fairy.

New game tiles include special tiles such as: volcano pieces (bring the dragon out), pieces that have a picture of the dragon (cause him to move 6 spaces), pieces with a knight on them (super-cool pieces that let you kick someone out of a city).

The most complicated part of this expansion is remembering to score your "fairy points" during game play but, as always, you can solve this by agreeing to not scoring ANY fairy points. The dragon moves 6 spaces when the indicated tiles are played, starting with the person who drew the tile. Each person then takes a turn moving the dragon one tile (up/down/right/left) until he has moved 6 spaces. The catch: he can NOT move to a tile that he has already landed on during that movement turn & if he runs out of places to go then he is done for this movement turn.

This expansion adds a new element of strategy to the game because you are constantly having to plan for someone kicking you out of a city & look for locations where the dragon could be deployed. I love the dragon but we have had to remove it from game play on most occasions because several regular player can't stand it. It is not for everyone & will probably be a love it or hate it expansion. If you enjoy the added strategy (or aren't sure but find it cheap) give it a shot. If nothing else you can use some of the extra game tiles because this is one expansion that you can use some parts while leaving out others.
