A mini expansion for the game Carcassonne and part of the Carcassonne series.
With this mini-expansion, you’ll send your Meeples to the barber surgeon’s. A bathhouse had several purposes during the Middle Ages. You could take a bath sharing the latest gossip as well as you could enjoy a highly professional medical treatment. Of course, your Meeple will be enjoying his time in the bathhouse, so he won’t be able to help you. To get him back there are various possibilities…
Components: 6 new land tiles Rules EN+GER
2 Players, 3 Players, 4 Players, 5 Players
Area Majority / Influence, Tile Placement
City Building, Expansion for Base-game, Territory Building, Medieval
Easy addition to the game. definitely annoying to get your meeples trapped on the baths, but adds to the strategy as you attempt to get them back, possibly by spending points.
Just when you think they're stretching to find new interesting ways to play Carcassonne a new mini expansion like Barber Surgeons releases and nicely refreshes play. I don't love it as much as some of the recent large Carc variants, but it is nice for a change of pace once in awhile.
[Cundco.de 18 edition] This mini-expansion will delay a maple from getting back to players' supply. After a feature is scored, if the meeple is the only one involved in the scoring, it MUST be placed in any Bathhouse for a rest. A player either get it for free (when all 8 surrounding tiles are filled, or pay a fee to get it back). There is no wow factor with this mini exp but I believe I will incline to play with this, esp. in 2/3p game to increase tension. I believe this exp will be more challenging if it has more tiles. Having 6 tiles, may not capture enough meeples to cause a trouble for anyone. The tile distribution is nothing new either. The landscape features are just normal ones.
