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.

so, I'm just wondering when the Hunters and Gatherers expansion will be added. That was the best version in my opinion, and even though this one is good, I would easily pay money for HaG. Hopefully it will come soon!

I thought HaG was a standalone game..? Not that I've played it, but I was sure it wasn't a Carcassonne expansion..

It was a separate game so at best it would be a bit of a spin-off since it was similar but had some unique play aspects and totally unique tiles compared to Carcassonne.

Gah, I thought this was going to be the update with in-app purchases, allowing the ability to buy different rule sets and stuff. It's all right though. Maybe next time.

I'm in the same boat as everyone else, I was really excited as I thought an expansion would have been released. Oh, well, that's a nice little update anyway. Hopefully included in the "lots of bug fixes" is a smoother multiplayer experience with random opponents.

Believe it or not, I have never bought anything as in-app purchases, and I can't wait for Carcassonne to be my first. I'm planning on buying any expansion offered first thing as it comes out.

Oh, and I'm still pretty new at this game and aren't too good yet, but if anyone here wants to play a little multiplayer game, please add me with this email adress: ch.hebert@gmail.com . I'd really like to play with some people here instead of just random opponents. Sounds like it'd be more exciting.
