Traders & Builders expands on the popular Carcassonne base game, adding new features and opening even more ways to outwit your opponents. With the new builder follower, you can speed up construction by placing another tile immediately after you add a Land tile to a road or city that your builder occupies. Further, the pig followers and Goods tokens give you more ways to score points. The pig enhances the value of any farmers you have in the same field, while completing cities with Goods icons on them awards Goods tokens; the player with the most gains bonus points at the end of the game.
Along with new followers and Goods tokens, Traders & Builders adds even more variety to the base game. Twenty-four Land tiles feature new landscape elements that alter the way some basic features operate. Some roads now feature bridges that do not count as junctions, potentially extending a road even farther. Finally, Traders & Builders makes storing and drawing Land tiles even easier with the included linen bag. Entirely redesigned and modernized, Traders & Builders gives you everything you need to return to the world of Carcassonne.
