Carcassonne is required to enjoy this game
The circus comes to Carcassonne with new meeple types and tiles.
The Greatest Show on Earth
The tent has been pitched outside of town and the performers are ready to thrill
the crowd with their death-defying stunts. A new world of excitement awaits in
Under the Big Top, the tenth expansion for award-winning tile-laying game
Carcassonne. Capturing the thrill of the circus, this expansion incorporates
twenty new Land tiles and two new follower types into the Carcassonne library.
Players can use them to attract people from all over the countryside to view
their menagerie of animals or witness their feats of death-defying skill. Just
like the daring risks that circus performers take, Under the Big Top gives
players plenty of opportunities to score big points—if they can draw in the
Enter the Big Top
At the circus, the big top is the main attraction. That’s no exception in
Under the Big Top. Much of the expansion focuses on clustering groups of
followers around the new tiles with the hope of getting big points when their
features are scored. Gather meeples on the Circus tile and its accompanying big
top figure or the eight tiles surrounding it and you’ll be rewarded the next
time a Circus tile is drawn. Additionally, the circus is so exciting that normal
followers are inspired to leave their lives behind and join the show. Stack your
meeples into a meeple-pyramid on the Acrobat tiles, impress your friends, and
score points once the show is over. Finally, ringmasters behave like normal
followers until the circus shows up. When that happens, they score bonus points
for being adjacent to Circus and Acrobat tiles when the features they’re on
are scored. Under the Big Top brings a whole new layer of excitement to
Carcassonne. Who will put on the best show and draw the biggest crowd?
