The eighth expansion for Carcassonne : Bridges, Castles & Bazaars allows players three new options while playing:
Bridges may be used to continue a road over a field tile, thereby allowing an incomplete road to technically run into a field segment. They are otherwise treated and scored just like roads.
Castle tokens are placed atop 2-segment cities and allow players a chance to cash-in on the next completed adjacent feature.
Bazaars are a new type of tile that allows players to auction off tiles in exchange for points.
NEW TILES GIVE NEW CHANCES
12 new land tiles expand the world of Carcassonne even further. Placing the new bazaar tile allows you to host an auction, giving you the chance to spend your earned points to buy advantageous tiles. The player willing to bid the highest will get first choice of tiles to then place and score.Small cities will score you a few points, but the new castle tile can transform the city and give you a chance to score even more points. As the area around the castle develops, the next feature to be finished and score will give you points as well because of the castle tile. Will you build the castle and take the gamble to score more?
GET AROUND BLOCKED PATHS
Dead ends aren’t a problem anymore! Travel the long road, crossing bridges into new lands. With 12 wooden bridge tokens, players can easily continue a blocked road with a bridge piece. Follow the new connected roadway to score.
