The box keeps everything organized and has space to spare.
Aaron Lusk
Carcassonne is a great game, and the Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders expansions are a must have.

The game is easy to learn to play but it can develop some complex strategies.

Lots of people have written great reviews of the original Carcassonne and all of its expansions on Amazon (or Board Game Geek), and that is not the purpose of this review. If you are interested in learning more about the game or expansions itself/themselves, just go to the product page for the base game or expansion you are interested in.

The goal of this review is to discuss the packaging and components of the Carcassonne Big Box. That said...

This IS A big box, but it's not huge. At 17 inches X 12 inches X 4 inches it easily stacks with several of my other larger game boxes like Star Trek Fleet Captains, etc.

And, it is a real bargain over buying the base set and included expansions separately (I bought mine from Cool Stuff Inc and got an especially good deal... but the savings would be even bigger if you had to pay regular retail for everything).

The Big Box contains the base game, two large expansions (Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders), six small expansions (The Flying Machine, The Messengers, The Ferries, The Gold Mines, Mage & Witch, and The Robbers), plus one mini expansion (The Crop Circles). This provides several dozen of combinations of sets to play, giving it a very high replayability value. Unfortunately, it does NOT include "The Rivers" tiles that you would get if you buy the base game by itself.

The inside of the box is very well organized. Everything has its own compartment. This is very cognitively satisfying for those of us with mild to moderate (o.k. severe!) OCD.

And, if you are not sure exactly what goes where, they were nice enough to provide this diagram on the inside of the box cover.

The original Amazon listing incorrectly listed expansions that aren't actually included with this Z-Man big box version of Carcassonne. The Amazon description was later updated to correctly list the included expansions: Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, Flying Machines, Messengers, Ferries, Gold Mines, Mage & Witch, Robbers, and Crop Circles. Of these, all but Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders are mini-expansions. Great game!

Pros: So many options the game never gets old. The box keeps everything organized and has space to spare. I ended up putting my other expansions in bags so everything can go into this one box. This makes taking the game to someone's house much easier. Expansions 1 & 2 are a must they add so much to the game and you would end up purchasing them anyway. Might as well get them all in one box. I have heard many people say Expansion 1 should just be part of the game away. As for the mini expansions you will love some and not care about others. They add some nice elements to the game. When I play with my family I'll throw 2~3 mini expansions in.

Cons: I only have two:

1. The River 1 is not included in the Big Box, yet it is included in the stand alone base game. If you want the River 2 purchase Expansion 6 (Count, King & Robber) like I did. The River 2 is better anyway but it would be nice if the River 1 was in this box.

2. If you purchase Expansion 2 (Traders and Builders) by it self the expansion comes with a large cloth bag to pull tiles from during the game. This is not included in this box. Would be nice if it was, not a deal breaker.

I bought this Big Box after playing the game once and have not been disappointed. The big box is great, as it comes with a lot of options at a reasonable price. Plus it has a place to keep all the expansion packs, which makes it easy to pick which tiles to play with every time.

The game is interesting and different every time we play. Its easy to learn, and does not take much for new comers to grasp the concepts. My six year plays and understands the game, while still being entertaining for adults.

Highly recommend this game for good clean family fun.

Carcassonne is simple to learn and play, but there's a lot of strategy and depth that takes longer to master. It's great to have a game that's as easy and fun to play with 2 people as it is with 6. It takes about 5 minutes to explain the game to someone new and everyone I've played with has wanted to play a second game immediately after. The expansions add a good amount of variation and keep the gameplay fresh as you master the basic game. The game components themselves are great - the cards are nice and thick, they fit together beautifully, and the game box fits all the different components very logically.

We bought this for some of our family members for Christmas. We all had a blast playing it together. My 8 year old learned how to play too. I was skeptical at first. It didn't sound like my kind of game, but it was really fun.

It's great to have all of these expansions together. The game is easy to learn to play but it can develop some complex strategies. This box has nice slots to keep all of the pieces in order.
