Inns & Cathedrals is a great expansion for the Carcassonne base game.

There are very few additional rules to learn, which means you can add in the expansion and start playing right away.

Note that this is an expansion set to the original Carcassonne game; you need the main game before you can use this. (Also note that this is not compatible with the Hunters and Gatherers set.)
This expansion introduces several new city, temple, and road tiles which aren't in the original set. It adds two types of tiles -- two "Cathedral" tiles, which causes a city to be worth 3 times the points if it is finished, or makes a city worth nothing at the end of the game if it isn't finished. It also adds a handful of "Inn on the lake" tiles which makes a road worth 2 times the points when finished or worth nothing if unfinished at the end of the game. Finally, a new pawn is included, which is worth two people when determining ownership of completed sections.
There are two disadvantages with this set -- the backs are slightly different than the original set, which I didn't originally notice. It's not too bad, but it was bad enough for the hardcore players that a bag is given in a later expansion set to solve this problem. The other disadvantage is that it is sometimes difficult to tell which one of your pawns is the big guy, as the only difference is that it's slightly bigger. I've been meaning to paint small sheriff badges on mine to make it easier to tell the difference.
In the end, it's a very nice expansion for one of the greatest board games I've ever played.

This is a wonderful expansion to the original Carcassonne Game. There are two primary factors that make this my favorite of the expansions that are available.

WHY IT'S GREAT:

#1: This expansion adds a new player color (grey), allowing you to play with 6 players instead of the original which is limited to 5.

#2: The rules for the expansion are very simple, and match perfectly with the original game. If you already know how to play Carcassonne, you can learn this expansion in minutes. There are very few additional rules to learn, which means you can add in the expansion and start playing right away.

WHAT'S BEEN ADDED:

There are two new elements to the game introduced with this set, along with several pieces that don't change the original at all, but improve upon what's already there.

The new factors are the big meeples, which can greatly increase your game strategy possibilities, along with the inns and cathedrals, which increase the value of your completed roads and cities.

The other bonuses include new shapes of road, city, and cloister tiles, which adds some variety and new possibilities to your city building. As I mentioned previously, you also get a 6th player color. The scoring cards are cute, but I didn't really find them necessary. We never got confused about how many points people have.

MINOR DETRACTING FACTORS:

As mentioned by the other reviewers, the color of the backs of these tiles is a tiny bit different from the original tiles. An underhanded player could pick them intentionally. This is easily resolved by putting all the tiles in a cloth bag.

For all the reasons listed by others, the expansion Inns and Cathedrals has become standard for me when playing Carcassonne.
A. The 6th color, grey is a bonus.
B. The big meaple (The Bully) for each color is really fun. Do you lay him down and try to claim the middle farm, or do you save him and try to steal a key city? Great addition.
C. The Inns take the formerly useless roads and make them relevant.
D. The Cathedrals present you with a very interesting choice. Try for extra points or try and hose someone else.
E. Extra tiles - Including one cool one with 4 end-caps.
F. And last, the scoring tiles, which is a nice thought but not really needed.

Overall, I Never play now without I&C.

This is an expansion that requires the core game of Carcassonne Game (which I highly recommend if you don't have it).

This expansion does two core things. First of all, it provides inn and cathedral tiles that multiply the value of the road or city they're associated with so that completed cities with cathedrals are worth 3 per tile or pennant instead of 2. Completed roads that are connected to an inn on the lake are worth 2 per tile instead of 1. However, if these features aren't completed by the end of the game, the entire city or road is worth nothing.

This makes these tiles good either as a bonus for a feature you think you can complete or a hinderance for a feature you think your opponent cannot complete (particularly with the cathedrals since they make the cities much bigger and harder to complete). This definitely adds some strategic elements and sabotage potential to the game. It also adds more tension as players try to complete things before the game ends.

Perhaps the biggest gameplay change is the simple addition of the giant follower. The giant follower is identical to other followers, except it counts as two followers for the purposes of determining who owns a completed city, road, or field. This makes it much more possible to attempt to steal a city from your opponent and also allows you to deploy the giant follower to defend assets you think might be vulnerable.

If you don't want to buy for this expansion, get colored indicators and use them as giant followers and you'll get about 20% of the expansion's benefits, maybe more.

This expansion also adds gray pieces for a sixth player to be able to play.

All-in-all, it's a good expansion that I recommend getting, though I liked Builders and Traders better.
