FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I redownload my Expansions?

You can restore your purchases free of charge in the app's purchases menu. (The treasure chest in the main menu.)

Help! Im trapped in a menu screen!
Try opening http://carcassonneapp.com/cleanup.html in your iPads or iPhones Safari.

What about more Expansions?

We are continuing to work on further expansions. Please don't hesitate to tell us which one you'd like to see next!

Can I play asynchronously?

Yes. In "Play with Friends" you can leave the app and will be notified when it's your turn again. No pressure though, unlike "Quick Play" there are no time limits.

Can I play against my familiy or friends by passing the device around?

Yes, of course. Up to five players can play on the same device.

Do I need to buy the expansions to participate in a game with expansions?

If you are playing local network multiplayer you can share an expansion with your opponents. To play online multiplayer, you need to buy the expansion to play with it.

Can I play with expansions in quick play?

Yes. However currently we limit the combinations of the expansions in quick play to avoid fragmentation of the player base and longer waiting times for games. We try to give three or four useful combinations for quick play. There is also the "Automatic" category that tries to match you up with anyone who wants to play right now.

Easier to check out a couple of video reviews for gameplay. Definitely worth the $10 in my opinion. it's one of the most polished board games in the AppStore of the App Store.

The new expansion pack Dragon & Princess (or was it Princess & Dragon?) is out! For only US$1.99 you get another level of fun (did I mention it worth it all?)

This game and its expansions are worth every single penny. This game is polished to death and is the absolute perfect asynchronous or synchronous online multiplayer board game on the app store in my opinion.

Oh I do, please feel free to invite me!

While I have yet to give this new expansion a spin, beyond a fun fantasy theme, this appears to be adding a whole slew of new mechanics around removing existing meeple as well as ways to then claim those abondoned areas. Heck, other than a way to harrass opponents, it also might be a way to get your own guys out of some useless dead ends!

Maybe some people played Carcassone to death on the XBox 360 just to get the achievements and have become bored with it?
