6 out of 7 gamers thought this was helpful

This expansion offers all the material for a 6th player. If you are just a casual gaming family then you could argue that this is unnecessary.

Once you have played the original a few times then adding Cathedrals (which triple the value of a city) and adding Inns (which double the value of a road) makes the game slightly more interesting – but it doesn’t add enough value to want to use them all the time. In fact, as a gaming family we have reverted back to just playing with the original. And the best use we find for the ‘large followers’ is to use them as ‘scorers’ to keep track of the score!

To summarise, if you want a sixth player option then this is great and it does spice up the game if you are going to play Carcassonne a lot.
