The New World has been discovered! Now it is time to explore and settle it. The players explore and develop the New World beginning on the east coast and moving ever westward, and deploy their settlers on the trails, in the towns, in the farms, and on the plains. The skills of the players to develop the area and use their robbers, shopkeepers, trappers, and farmers will determine who is victorious.The players place land tiles turn by turn. As they do so, the trails, towns, plains, and farms emerge and grow. On these, the players can deploy their settlers to earn points. Players score points during the game and at the end. The player with the most points after the final scoring is the winner. Contents: * 95 land tiles

|I really like this stand alone version of Carcassonne - and I have all the Carcassonne expansions.
You really do feel a sense of urgency to build west as you play to get the bonuses that the surveyors offer.
However, the rules are a little vague in some places and have been clarified:
As I've said, this version of Carcassonne does offer something a little different to the usual Carcassonne game, so if you enjoy Carc, then give this one a try too.

This is another variant of the Carcassonne game.
It is very similar to Hunters and Gathers in the scoring options, but has a new twist with the scoring track providing the starting point and Surveyors adding a new dynamic to the game.
Players lay tiles in the normal way following the usual placement rules for carcassone games, the twist is the surveyors. Once a player has scored his his tile where he gets a bonus score for being in the same column as a surveyor, he has to move the eastern most surveyor to the next column. If there is any standing meeples in the column he moved from or behind him they are handed back to the players who own them. This makes it a much different tactic when laying tiles as you have to be careful you don't set up a finish behind the surveyor that someone else completes. I really enjoyed this variant as I think it makes changes to the normal dynamic of the games making it more interesting to play.
I would recommend this one to fans of Carcossone and to those that have never played, though having played another version of the game helps to get stuck into this one easier.
