Vistas brings a new Vista feature to Carcassonne. Vista is placed on a viewpoint and is completed when 6 tiles are placed under the vista. Each different type of feature plus each visible and significant part of the landscape awards the player one point. When playing with other expansions, you can get a higher score for a completed Vista.

There is much hard work to be done in the land of Carcassonne. But it is also important that the people stop to rest and enjoy the beauty of the land around them. For it is written in the Book of Books that even God Himself stopped and "looked at everything He had made, and it was very good," and "on the seventh day He rested from all His work."

General info

Vistas fan-expansion for Carcassonne Base Game Carcassonne Base Game was released by Carcassonne Central members stalcupojoy (CarcC) and Snearone (CarcC) who redesigned tiles into C2 style as Vistas Revisited C2.

  • 12 landscape tiles with Vista Points.



Shuffle the new land tiles in with those from the base game and stack them normally.

1. Placing a tile

Whenever you draw a tile, place it normally.

2. Placing a meeple

In addition to normal placement options, a player may deploy a meeple on the Vista Point as a Sightseer.

3. Scoring a feature

Each Vista Point faces outward toward a six-tile “Vista” area, two tiles deep and three tiles wide (see diagram) and is scored when this six-tile area is completed. This “Vista” area does not include the tile on which the Vista Point itself is located.

A Sightseer scores 1 point per type of feature in the Vista that is both “visible” and “significant.” A feature type is:

  1. Visible if it is intended as a visible part of the landscape, rather than functioning as an icon (e.g. city pennants, icons like dragon, princess etc.).
  2. Significant if it either:
    • Scores (e.g. cities, roads, gardens, fields, vista points)
    • Influences scoring (e.g. inns, cathedrals, tunnels, hills)
    • Causes an action (e.g. volcano, magic portal, bazaars)
    • Is a notable topographical feature (e.g. the river, water towers)

When not sure, check our Table of Scorable & Non scorable Features.

Example 1: Blue on a completed Vista Point would score for the following types of features: cities, roads, fields, garden, highwaymen, inn, crop circle, farmhouse, vista point, crossroad and river. The Sightseer scores 11 points and then return to its owner's supply.
Final Scoring

Any incomplete Vistas score 1 point per type of visible, significant feature, just as during the game.

New land tiles

The new land tiles are played like those in the base game.

Vistas Revisited C2 05.png
Continuous Road : The road does not end on this tile. Instead, it branches into 3 directions.
Vistas Revisited C2 11.png
Separate City Segments : This tile has two seperate city segments. If you place a tile with one city segment to the top of it, the city segments become connected.
Note: If you place it next to similar tile like the ones from Hills & Sheep Hills & Sheep as shown, all of the separate city segments are connected.
