General info and comments
The 3D Starting Landscape and 3D Starting Landscape with Alternative Inlay were released by Hans im Glück in 2023.
With this item, you can build different three-dimensional Carcassonne starting landscapes. At the same time, the inlay function allows you to store your base game and your mini expansions more efficiently.
The inlay function replaces the current box insert. It offers more space for your Carcassonne base game and your mini-expansions. Assemble the box (see corners of the box) and place it in the Carcassonne carton. You can then organise the tiles of the Carcassonne base game and mini-expansions into this new inlay using the included tile holders.
The start landscape replaces the start tile. It does not add any new rules to the game, but offers more possibilities to place land tiles. The printed tiles on the box also counts for the scoring. You can place tiles and meeple on and around the box following the usual rules. Treat the castle panorama the same way as the edge of the table.
- 1x box with Carcassonne print
- 4x boxes without Carcassonne print (alternative inlay version only)
- 5x small tuckboxes (for meeple) (alternative inlay version only)
- 1x 72 tile holders
- 4x or 20x 6 tile holders (more with alternative inlay version)
- 10x 12 tile holders
- 1x castle panorama
Place the landscape on the edge of the table, so that you don't place tiles behind the starting landscape during the game and everyone can see all the land tiles without restrictions. Place 1 or 3 empty boxes on the table with the open side down. Now you see a small gap on each of the long sides of the box. Put the castle panorama into one of these gaps. Make sure that the panorama is between two layers of paper and that the illustration is facing the bottom of the box. If you are using all three boxes, stack them together to form a staircase. The stacked "backs" at the edge of the table do not have to form a matching landscape.
If you stack the starting landscapes on top of each other, we recommend moving the top box a few millimetres forward for more stability.
1. Placing a tile

✎ General comments
This expansion was developed for the Carcassonne base game and its rules still apply. You can combine the start landscape with other expansions; however, there will be no official rules or instructions for these combinations.
