Carcassonne: Inns & Cathedrals is the first major expansion for Carcassonne.
In addition to tiles that present Carcassonne's familiar cities, roads, and cloisters in new shapes, Inns & Cathedrals introduces several new aspects to the game.
Firstly there is a whole new set of Meeple's (playing pieces) so that a sixth player can join in.
Next there is a a "big meeple" for each player which counts as two regular meeples when placed on the board for counting score.
Then there are two completely new kinds of tiles - the inns and cathedrals that give the expansion its name.
Finally, a set of scoring cards helps make score-keeping a little clearer.
Part of the Carcassonne series and not a complete game - you will need a copy of Carcassonne to play and enjoy this expansion.
