Product Description

Product Description

The New World has been discovered! Now it is time to explore and settle it. The players explore and develop the New World beginning on the East Coast and moving westward, and deploy their settlers on the trails, in the town, in the farms, and on the plains. The skills of the players to develop the area and use their robbers, shopkeepers, trappers, and farmers will determine who is victorious. The players place land tiles turn by turn. As they do so, the trails, towns, plains, and farms emerge and grow. On these, the players can deploy their settlers to earn points. Players score points during the game and at the end. The player with the most points after the final scoring is the winner.

From the Manufacturer

In this Carcassonne game, players begin as the early settlers of the United States did on the east coast of America. As they explore westward, they build towns, farms, paths, and compete to score more points than the others players. As exploration moves to the west, players who are slow to complete the features they have started will find themselves left behind - with no points.

New World plays much like Carcassonne. The main new mechanic is the two surveyors, one of which moves one "column" of tiles to the west each time someone scores points. All followers that are behind the rearmost surveyor when it moves are returned to the player. This tends to focus players on starting and finishing one feature before someone else scores. An additional aspect of the surveyors is that if a follower is in the same column as a surveyor when the feature the follower is on is scored, the player gets 4 bonus points. If both surveyors are in the same column as the follower, the player gets 8 bonus points. This means that if you can pull off a quick score on a tile in the same column as both surveyors, even a simple 2 point score can net you 10 points. I also like the "east coast" starting board for starting the game instead of the specific square used in the previous games.

If you are a fan of Carcassonne and are looking for a slightly different twist on the game, I would recommend this game. Unfortunately, because the art style is different, the tiles in New World don't fit with tiles from the other Carcassonne games stylistically. If you aren't concerned about the art, the features might still line up, so you might be able to use them. If you are looking for a wildly different take on the game however, you will be disappointed, as New World is at least 90% the same as the original Carcassonne game.

If you have never played Carcassonne before, I would recommend that you get the regular Carcassonne game instead. If you like it, there are many expansions that fit with that game.

Very similar to the original Carcassonne. This adds surveyors who also move west with the growing tiles. If you have a person who gets left behind the surveyors, they go back into your hand without scoring. This is bad if your person is on a really long road that doesn't finish in time. It's good if they are in a city that has no way of being completed. There are a few extras - trading posts along the roads for more points and other things. If you liked the original, you'll like this.

The strategy here is not that difficult, simply move westward, completing either towns, roads or farms, and advance in points accordingly.

The game board is well laid out, giving the players three main options on how to proceed westward - Plymouth, New York or Jamestown.

The players don't have many options in blocking or playing defense against their fellow competitors.

All in all, this is the type of strategy game that should be easy to pick up and play, fun for people who are interested with a two dimensional movement that combines elements of games like the Cataan series with some random elements as well, in a bit of a simpler format.

This game is not an expansion to other Carcassonne games, it plays by itself and it is one of the best in the entire series. This game takes the regular gameplay of Carcassonne and turns it into a race to the West! It is really fun and educational for kids who are learning about American westward expansion. So much fun and a different twist on a fun game series!

My wife and I have played the original Carcassonne, but this was a refreshing new twist with surveyors. Once we got the hang of the surveyors it was awesome fun in trail and settlement building, with positioning your trappers. Great game. Very good quality tiles.

We liked the original better. This one has more structure as you can't just place your pieces wherever, it only allows you to keep building from right to left.
