Yes, that is allowed: The Abbey tiles act as Cloisters but do not have to match adjacent tiles and they complete adjacent features when placed. MODERATORS It seems clear that if I place an Abbey tile in the centre of eight other tiles so that it is immediately completed, and if I have followers in my hand, I can score nine points by placing one of those followers ruules it and immedialtely removing it just like I could with a cloister. For those wondering about my image that has been used in this review, it is detailing how the Abbey is scored: Global Moderator Viscount Merit: The primary effect of placing an Abbey is to complete and score the features it touches on those four sides, the result being that it can complete several difficult to finish features at once.

Older editions[ edit ] There are two older editions of Carcassonne, differing in scoring of cities and fields. Though, until recently, the first edition scoring rules were included with English releases of Carcassonne, third edition rules  are now included with all editions including the Xbox and travel versions , and are assumed by all expansions in all languages.
In the first and second editions of the game, completed cities covering just two tiles scored two points one per tile and one extra point for every pennant that resides in the city. The greatest divergence in scoring rules between the editions of Carcassonne is in scoring for fields. In the first edition, the players with the greatest number of followers adjacent to a city were awarded four points for that city.
Thus, followers from different fields contributed to the scoring for a city, and followers on a field may contribute to the scoring for multiple cities.
The third edition removes these exceptions and brings field scoring in line with the scoring of other features. Game interest[ edit ] Walls of Carcassonne in France Carcassonne is considered to be an excellent "gateway game" by many board game players  as it is a game that can be used to introduce new players to board games.
The rules are simple, no one is ever eliminated, and the play is fast. A typical game, without any expansions, takes about 45 minutes to play.
Examples of tactical considerations include: Conserving followers. Since each player has only seven followers, it can be easy to run out. This is especially important with fewer players, because then each player will play more tiles during the game.
Often it is possible to add a separate road or castle segment near a big road or castle and join them up. Avoiding sharing. An advantage can be gained by preventing other players from getting points. This is more important with fewer players, or if the sharing player is doing well. Judicious placement of followers in fields. Followers in the right field can be worth a lot of points. However, once placed, they are there for the whole game.
Not all possible tile configurations exist in the game. So if a player knows which tiles exist or are more common, they can create situations where it is hard or impossible for an opponent to complete some feature.

Special tiles with Inns and Cathedrals can be placed as part of roads and cities to enhance their value—provided they are completed by the end of the game.

A "pig" follower which increases the value of a field it is placed in. A "builder" follower which grants an extra turn to the owning player whenever the feature is extended or completed.
