Carcassonne: The Tower Expansion
From the Publisher...
Ever upwards in Carcassonne!
In this Carcassonne expansion, players have the opportunity to build upwards! The lords of the region around Carcassonne erect towers to strengthen and promote their power and influence. They employ followers to stand guard on the towers, watching over the land so they can inform their lords of all who travel and move throughout the area.
Players may capture opponents’ followers, holding them in prison. Later, the players may arrange a prisoner exchange, to the advantage of the players involved. Also, a player may arrange to pay ransom for the return of an imprisoned follower.
Fans of Carcassonne will enjoy the new tactical opportunities offered by this expansion.
The expansion also includes a special tower for storing the landscape tiles, giving players a convenient way to draw tiles during the game.

|A good expansion that adds more direct conflict into the game as you can capture and ransom each other's meeples. If you wanted more conflict in Carcassonne, this expansion is for you.
|Another conflict filled expansion for Carcassonne. Adds a vertical component to the game that allows you to capture your opponent's meeples and ransom them for points. Can be very fun or very frustrating. I suggest this game for players who like very attack based games of Carc.
|This game takes Carcassonne and makes it a much different game. Fun if you need something new.
