General info and comments

Expansion symbol

Bridges, Castles and Bazaars (originally Brücken, Burgen und Basare) was released for the New Edition by Hans im Glück in 2017. It is an update of the first edition released in 2010.

This is the eighth major expansion for Carcassonne and introduces some new aspects to the game. Travelling traders arrive in the land and organize bazaars, in which haggling is considered an art. At the same time, engineers are expanding the road network with modern bridges, and small castles are being built everywhere to defend the region.

New features/things are:

  • Bridges
  • Castles
  • Bazaars

A Carcassonne expansion is not really a Carcassonne expansion when there are no new tiles, so in the box you also find 12 tiles that represent city segments, road segments and cloisters in new configurations plus the addition of bazaars which will help create much more than a beautiful landscape.

Contents

  • 12 new land tiles including 8 with a bazaar
Bazaar symbol
  • 12 castle tokens
Castle token
  • 12 wooden bridges
Wooden bridge

Rules

Preparation

Shuffle the new land tiles with those of the base game and stack them facedown as a general supply within easy reach of all players.

Then, give each player a number of bridges and castles:

  • When playing with 2, 3, or 4 players, give each player 3 bridges and 3 castles.
  • When playing with 5 or 6 players, give each player 2 bridges and 2 castles.

The twelve new land tiles should be mixed with those of the basic game. Over the course of play they will be drawn and placed according to the usual rules.

Bridges

Bridges Castles Bazaars C2 Feature Bridge.png


1. Placing a tile

Just like in the base game, you must place tiles so that its edges match the edges of the tiles already in play. After placing a tile, you may [1] place a bridge, which counts as a road and connects roads over features or meeples on that tile. [2]

Example 1: Placing a bridge.

You can place one bridge on the tile you just placed, or on a tile touching the tile you just placed. When placing a bridge, you must place both ends in a field, and it must be placed facing either left-to-right or up-to-down (it cannot be placed diagonally across the tile). Once placed, a bridge remains on that tile until the end of the game.

You can place a tile so that a road ends against a field, but you must place a bridge that continues the road on that same turn. You can use multiple bridges in a row along the same road, but each tile can have a maximum of only one bridge on it. [3] Bridges can be placed on tiles with meeples on them.


Example 2 - Place a bridge on the tile you placed: You (the Red player) placed a tile to expand the city. The tile you placed does not have a road on it, so you can place one of your bridges on it to continue the road.
Example 3 - Place a bridge on a tile adjacent to the tile you placed: You place a tile. You placed a bridge on an adjacent tile to continue the road.
Example 4: You cannot place a bridge on this tile, because both ends would not be on a field.
Example 5: Two bridges built in a row, one going over a monastery with a monk in it.

2. Placing a meeple

After placing a tile, you can place a Meeple normally. If you build a bridge on the tile you just placed, you can place your meeple (or another figure) on the bridge as if it were a road.

3. Scoring a feature

Bridges are scored like tiles with a road on them. [4]

Bridges do not separate cities or fields.

Example 6: You placed a tile to complete this road, and score 6 points.

Castles

Token Castle C2.png


3. Close a small city and place a castle [5]

When you place a tile that completes a small city (a city consisting of only 2 semi-circular segments [6] [7]), the owner of the small city chooses to either score 4 points as normal, or to place a castle on that small city instead.

When the owner places a castle, cover the small city that was just completed with a castle from your supply, and place the meeple that was in the small city on top of the castle. [8] [9]

Once placed, a castle remains on that small city until the end of the game.

A castle with a meeple is not yet completed. [10] [11]

When placing a castle, it does not matter whether your meeple is already on the first half of the small city before the castle is placed, or whether you place the meeple on the second half of the small city you just completed. [10]

Example 1: You placed a tile to close the small city, and placed your meeple on it. Instead of scoring 4 points, you placed a castle.

3. Scoring a castle

Placing a castle does not score you any points. Instead, you score points when a neigboring feature is completed in a later turn. [12] [13] [14] A feature is considered neigboring if it is on either one of the 2 tiles containing your castle, the 2 tiles to the right, or the 2 tiles to the left - a total of 6 tiles.

Only part of the completed feature needs to be on a neighboring tile for you to score points for it. Both you and the player who would normally score points for that feature score its full points. [15] Once you score points for a neighboring feature, your meeple is returned to your supply, but your castle remains on its place until the end of the game.

Example 2: The tiles and spaces numbered 1 to 6 are neighboring your castle. You can score points when the following features are completed:
  • The monastery on 1
  • The road to 1
  • The top city on 3
  • The right city on 6
(The small city on 3 and 6 was scored before your castle was placed, and you cannot score points from it any more).

The following rules apply to castles:

  • You must score points for the first feature completed on a tile neighboring your castle. You cannot forego scoring to leave your meeple for a later feature.
  • Even if the first completed feature does not contain a meeple, you still score points from it if it is neighboring your castle. [16]
  • If you control both a castle and the next completed neighboring feature, you score its points twice (once for the feature and once for the castle).
  • A monastery is only neighboring a castle if the tile with the monastery on it is in one of the 6 neighboring spaces.
  • If a tile is placed that causes multiple features that are neighboring your castle to be completed at the same time, you decide which of them to receive points for. [17] A castle can only get points from one single feature. [18]
  • Two or more incomplete castles may be standing next to each other. If one of them scores points, it will be considered as a completed feature for the adjacent castles. All the castle owners receive the same number of points. [19] [20]
  • Castles separate fields, just like roads or cities.
Example 3: The Blue player completes the city and scores 16 points. Because part of the city is neighboring your castle and is the first completed neighboring feature, you also score 16 points.
Final scoring

At the end of the game, remove all the meeples still standing in a castle in the playing area before the final scoring. Nobody gets more points for them. [21]

When determining the value of a field, castles are worth 4 points (instead of 3).

Bazaar

Feature Bazaar C2.png


When you draw a tile with a bazaar on it, do the steps: 1. Place a tile, 2. Place a meeple and 3. Score a feature normally. [22] You cannot place a meeple on the bazaar.

4. Host a bazaar auction

After you have placed a bazaar and completed your turn, a bazaar auction of landscape tiles takes place. Skip this step if there are fewer tiles remaining than there are players.

Draw and reveal a number of tiles equal to the number of players. The player on your left (the first auctioneer) then chooses one of those tiles and bids a number of points for it (the bid can also be 0 points [23]). Continuing clockwise, players take turns bidding either a greater number of points or passing, until all players have had the chance to bid or pass. Then, the player who chose the tile must either:

  • Buy the tile from the highest bidder, by giving that player a number of points equal to the highest bid, OR
  • Sell the tile to the highest bidder, by taking from that player a number of points equal to the highest bid.

The score track is then adjusted so the buyer loses a number of points equal to the high bid, while the seller gains an equal number of points. The buyer then takes the tile that was being auctioned. If the only player to place a bid was the player who chose the tile, he or she pays a number of points equal to their bid, but no other player gains those points.

It is possible to bid more points than you have, and players can have a negative score as a result of buying tiles, especially at the beginning of the game.

Once a player has taken a tile during a bazaar auction, he or she is out of the round and cannot bid any more. Among the players who have not yet taken a tile this round, the next player clockwise from the previous auctioneer [24] chooses (as the new auctioneer) which tile will be auctioned next, and a new auction begins. This continues until only one tile remains, and the player still without a tile takes it for free.

Now all players have one purchased tile. Starting in clockwise order with the player on the left of the active player, [25] [26] all players play their purchased tile as in a normal turn with phases 1. Placing a tile, 2. Placing a meeple (if he or she wishes), and 3. Scoring a feature. Of course, nobody draws a tile in this "bazaar" round. [27]

3-player example:
You draw a bazaar tile and place it normally. After your turn is complete, you draw 3 tiles for the auction.
  1. Blue chooses one of the tiles and bids 2 points. Black passes, and you bid 3 points. Because you are the highest bidder, and blue still wants the tile, he or she buys it from you by losing 3 points, while you gain 3 points.
  2. Black chooses the next tile, and bids 2 points. You bid 3 points, and Black decides to sell you the tile. You lose 3 points and Black gains 3 points.
  3. There is only one tile left, which Black takes for free. Starting with Blue, each player places his or her tile normally.

Once the bazaar round is complete, play resumes normally starting with the player to your left.

No chain reaction: If a bazaar tile auctions another bazaar tile, no auction takes place when the second bazaar tile is placed. Only after all auctioned tiles have been placed, a new bazaar auction can take place. [28]

Bazaar Variant Rule: When you place a bazaar tile, draw and reveal a number of tiles equal to the number of players. Beginning with the player to your left, each player takes and immediately plays one of the tiles from the ones you revealed as in a normal turn. Then play resumes normally starting with the player to your left.

Other expansions

This section contains additional information about the interactions with other Carcassonne expansions.

Bridges

  • Scoring bonuses and actions affecting locally printed roads on a tile by proximity (the feature must be on the road) or connectivity (the feature must be connected to the road) will not affect bridges passing over the tile automatically:
  • Exp. 1 - Inns & Cathedrals: Inns on a tile will not affect a bridge placed on the tile. The inn only affects the printed road segment(s) next to it. However, the bridge will profit from an inn, the same as any other printed road segment, if they are part of the same road network.
  • Exp. 4 - The Tower: You can place a bridge and a tower on the same tile. If necessary, adjust the tower's position to make room for the bridge.
  • Exp. 10 - Under the Big Top:
    • You can place a bridge over the campground (with or without the big top) on a circus tile.
    • You cannot place an acrobat on an acrobat tile with a bridge on it.
  • Little Buildings: A little building on a tile will affect a bridge placed on that tile.
  • The Watchtowers: A watchtower scoring for neighboring tiles with road segments will also consider tiles with a bridge.

Castles

  • When scoring a castle, you still score bonus points for these features (see full detail below including other feaures):
The following table details the feature scoring modifiers and bonuses applicable to a feature when scored. The resulting points will be scored by the owner of the castle unless the castle lord is a mayor:

Notes:

  1. Monastic building represents any of the following features: monastery, abbey, shrine, German monastery, Dutch & Belgian monastery, Japanese building, Darmstadt church.


  • Special case: small cities and castles with multiple meeples
    • Icon World Black.png Small cities are normally occupied by one single meeple from one player. However, several meeples (from one or more players) may occupy the same small city if playing with Mini #1 - The Flier (Flying Machines). In this case, if only one player has the majority in the feature, that player will be the one either scoring it or converting the small city into a castle only occupied by the meeple(s) of the player with the majority.
Additionally, some special situations may arise when meeples from different players share the majority in the same small city, since each player may decide differently. So, we may encounter the following scenarios:
  • All the players with the majority decide to score the small city: The city will be scored as usual taking into account the majority in the feature.
  • All the players with the majority decide to convert the small city into a castle: The resulting castle will have several occupiers (the meeples from the players sharing the majority in the small city). If the castle is completed eventually, all the players sharing the castle will score points for it.
  • Some of the players sharing the majority decide to score the small city and the rest choose to convert it into a castle: The players scoring the city will apply the majority without taking into consideration those meeples from players who decided to convert the small city into a castle. After scoring, the meeples involved will be returned to their owners. The castle will be created only with the meeples of the players who decided to convert the small city. If the castle is completed eventually, all the players sharing the castle will score points for it.
Additional notes:
  • Deploying meeples from the city of Carcassonne: If playing with the Count of Carcassonne (Exp. 6 - Count, King & Robber), players will be allowed to deploy meeples from the city of Carcassonne to the small city only if at least one player is scoring it. All these additional meeples will participate in the scoring only. They cannot be deployed to the small city to later occupy the resulting castle if any player decided to convert it instead of scoring the small city.
  • Castle tokens: Each player who chose to convert the small city into a castle will have to place a castle token from their supply on top of the small city. No player can keep their castle token for a later use because other player was placing theirs. As an alternative, instead of stacking the castle tokens, you may place only one of them and remove the rest from the game.
    This means that a player without any castle tokens in their supply cannot decide to convert a shared small city into a castle. In this case, the player can only score the small city.
  • Exp. 3 - The Princess and the Dragon:
    • The dragon cannot eat meeples in the castle.
    • You can place the fairy with a meeple in the castle and score the usual fairy points. [29]
  • Exp. 4 - The Tower: A tower cannot capture any meeples in the castle.
  • Exp. 5 - Abbey and the Mayor: When scoring a field, whether for farmers or barns, a castle is worth 1 point more than a completed city.
  • Exp. 6 - Count, King and Robber:
    • King and Robber: A castle does not score as a completed city for the king.
    • Count of Carcassonne: Meeples from the City of Carcassonne cannot move to a castle.
    • River II: The pigsty (or pig-herd) tile provides one more point for castles in the field.
  • Exp. 10 - Under the Big Top:
    • When scoring a circus, your meeple in the castle scores points if part of the castle lies within the circus' surroundings.
    • For the purpose of scoring the castle, acrobat pyramids do not count as completed features.
    • At the end of the game, the last circus scoring should be carried out before removing any remaining castle lord from the playing area.
  • The Wheel of Fortune: Castles do count for scoring of the Famine sector of the Wheel of Fortune, as this is effectively a scoring of farms.
  • Mini #5 - Mage and Witch: The Mage and the Witch cannot be placed on a castle, since it is not a city anymore. This implies that any of these figures placed on a small city should be removed when converting it to a castle.
  • Besiegers - Cathars - Siege: A city under siege (or under attack from Cathars) can be converted to a castle, and it is handled as a normal castle. The siege or Cathar attack is ignored after conversion to a castle.
  • The Plague: Meeples in castles are safe from the plague, as it affects the tile directly, and castles are not present on a specific tile.

Bazaar

  • Exp. 2 - Traders and Builders: If you place a bazaar tile and it expands [30] [31] a road or city containing your builder, complete the bazaar round before beginning your double turn.

 Icon Open Book.png Question: What is the order of events if the bazaar tile extends a feature with a builder?

Answer:
Bridges Castles Bazaars C2 Bazaar QA.png

If you draw a bazaar tile and can perform your builder-turn, first take the appropriate number of face-down tiles and perform the bazaar and the auction. Then a new round with a special property starts – each player has an open and known tile instead of drawing an unknown tile, and you cannot place your abbey as your first tile. If you placed your auctioned tile and you can perform a builder-turn, you can choose to place your abbey or draw a new unknown tile. If any player draws a new bazaar tile [for his or her builder-turn or for message 4], it will be ignored until the last player who has an auctioned tile finishes his turn (including his builder-turn, if possible). Any pending delayed bazaars will take place now in turn. Once the bazaar rounds are finished, you perform your builder-turn.

In other words:

  • Draw bazaar and perform first part of your double turn.
  • ** // Start pending bazaars // **
  • Draw the tiles (still face-down)
  • Turn tiles face-up and perform the auction
  • ( Start delaying any new bazaars )
    • 1st Player with auctioned tile (if a bazaar tile, no bazaar is triggered)
    • 1st player’s builder-turn, if applicable
    • Next player with auctioned tile (if a bazaar tile, no bazaar is triggered)
    • Next player’s builder-turn, if applicable
    • ...
    • Last player with auctioned tile (if a bazaar tile, no bazaar is triggered)
    • Last player’s builder-turn, if applicable
  • ( Stop delaying any new bazaars )
  • Player who drew and placed a new bazaar in his/her builder turn (pending delayed bazaar)
  • ** Back to // Start pending bazaars // until no pending delayed bazaars **
  • Perform your builder-turn (second part of your double turn)


  • Exp. 3 - The Princess and the Dragon: If you place a dragon tile during a bazaar round, the dragon moves immediately before continuing the bazaar round.

Footnotes

For Icons licensing and explanation please visit Icons page.

  1. Icon Open Book.png Note the use of the word "may" in the statement. A player is not required to use a bridge to place a tile, even if that tile would otherwise have to be discarded. The player has the choice to use the bridge to place the tile or just discard the tile. (10/2014)
  2. Icon Open Book.png As with normal roads, each end of the bridge must continue a road segment (or bridge) already in play or must be adjacent to an empty place for a tile. (12/2014)
  3. Icon Open Book.png One tile cannot have 2 bridges running perpendicular to each other. The rules state that the bridge must lie on a field, and if bridges are stacked, one end of the top bridge will not touch the field.
  4. Icon World Black.png As the bridge is counted just like a printed road segment, any completed road that includes a bridge and a printed road segment on the same tile still only scores 1 point for the tile. (2/2014)
  5. Icon Double Arrow Black.png This section has been reworded to include all details left out by ZMG:
    • A small city can only consist of two semicircular tiles
    • The owner of the city decides whether to score the small city or convert it into a castle
    • The meeple on the completed city is moved into the castle
    • A castle with a meeple is considered incomplete
    • It does not matter which half of the city has its owner's meeple
  6. Icon Open Book.png The HiG rules state that a small city consisting of "two semi-circular city segments" would qualify for castle placement, which would not allow you to use, for example, a triangular city segment. The castle token has to cover the small city completely in order to replace it visually on the board. (7/2010)
    This point was confirmed by Christof Tisch (HiG) on BGG:

    https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/538079/1-question-about-castles

    Icon World Black.png This means the following tiles cannot be part of a small city converted into a castle, since the castle token would reveal some city "ruins" from the small city underneath: parts of city walls, city bridges, or even partial city segments:

    Princess And Dragon C2 Tile F.jpg 
    Top city
    segment
    Bridges Castles Bazaars C2 Tile I.jpg 
    Witch-hat

    Triangular
    city segment
    Hills And Sheep C2 Tile O.jpg  
    Both city
    segments touching
  7. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG rules define small city as "a city consisting of only 2 tiles." This lack of constraints would allow small cities to combine tiles different than regular semi-circular segments, such as witch-hat city segment. The only hint otherwise is provided by the examples.
  8. Icon Open Book.png When placing a castle on these tiles from The Tower, you may need to move a tower on them a bit aside.

    Tower C2 Tile B.jpg 
    Tower C2 Tile M.jpg 
  9. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG rules ommit the placement of the meeple on the castle.
  10. 10.0 10.1 Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG rules ommit this sentence.
  11. Icon Open Book.png The castle is considered incomplete at this point.
  12. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The HiG rules specify that castles score when features are completed in their fief in a subsequent turn: "You won't get any points when you build the castle. You get points for your castle if the first feature (monastery, city or road) in the vicinity of your castle is completed in a later turn." This detail is not mentioned explicitly in the ZMG rules.
  13. Icon World Black.png This reference to "a later turn" should be interpreted as a later round of scoring, that is, you cannot create a castle and score it right away. So at least one tile placement has to happen before the castle can be scored. With this in mind, during a double turn (technically one turn with two parts), you would be able to create a castle in the first part of your turn and score it as soon as the second part of the same turn. There is no provision in the rules for ignoring completed features after the castle is created, only during the same round of scoring the castle is created. Check the following example:
    1. You place a tile that extends a city with your builder and completes a small city that you turn into a castle (claimed by you, of course). The builder grants you a double turn.
    2. During the second part of your double turn, you complete another feature in the castle fief and you score the feature and the castle created in the first part of the turn.
    It would have a similar case when playing with Mini #2 - The Messages (Dispatches):
    1. You place a tile that completes a small city occupied by you and another feature occupied by you. You turn the small city into a castle and score the other feature. After scoring your scoring meeple lands on a dark space and you receive Message 4.
    2. You draw a new tile that completes another feature in the fief of the castle just created on this turn. The Message is dispatched on the very same turn but it creates a new round of scoring. As a result, you score the completed feature and the castle.
  14. Icon Open Book.png The castle is considered completed at this point.
  15. Icon World Black.png This is after any bonuses or penalties (such as the Cathedral or Witch) are accounted for. (4/2014)
  16. Icon World Black.png Note that this statement essentially indicates that points are tallied for all completed features, even unoccupied ones. However, generally nobody scores (receives those points) for an unoccupied feature. (2/2015)
  17. Icon World Black.png In practical terms, this would probably mean the same as choosing the completed feature worth the most points.
  18. Icon Double Arrow Black.png ZMG rules modified the meaning of this paragraph, stating that:
    "If a tile is placed that causes multiple features that are neighboring your castle to be completed at the same time, you decide what order they are scored. As always, you only score points for the first feature."
    This discrepancy may be the result of a mistranslation.
  19. Icon World Black.png A completed castle overlapping another castle's fief will trigger the scoring of the latter. If two castles overlap each other's fiefs, the completion of any of those castles will trigger their scoring reciprocally, so they will be scored together. Of course, this triggering may affect more than two castles.
    Example: The yellow castle and the red castle overlap each other's fief. The blue castle overlaps the red castle fief but not vice versa. The blue and the yellow castle fiefs don't overlap.
    • A completed feature triggering the scoring the red castle or the yellow castle will be scored by both castles. The blue castle, when completed, can trigger the scoring of both castles, since the blue castle overlaps the red castle fief.
    • However, the completion of the red castle (and therefore the yellow castle) will not trigger the scoring of the blue castle, since the red castle does not overlap the blue castle fief.
  20. Icon World Black.png This paragraph has been reworded according to the German rules. The English wording by ZMG is less clear: "If a castle is scored while neighboring your castle, your castle is also scored. All castles involved in such a scoring score points from the initial completed neighboring feature."
  21. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG rules ommitted the removal of the meeples in unscored castles.
  22. Icon Open Book.png If the tile cannot be placed and is discarded, the bazaar will not occur. (10/2014)
  23. Icon World Black.png Clarification included in the German rules but omitted by ZMG.
  24. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG edition states that "the next player clockwise from the previous buyer," but the German rules state "the next player in a clockwise direction who has not yet received a tile" referring to the next player clockwise to the one who chose the previous tile to be auctioned. We included the reference to the "auctioneer" to clarify the sequence.
  25. Icon World Black.png Note that the active player is the one who placed the bazaar tile.
  26. Icon Double Arrow Black.png The ZMG edition states "starting with the first buyer," that departs from the German rules that state "the player after the active player starts."
  27. Icon World Black.png All players place their purchased tiles as in a normal turn. After placing their tile, a player may place a meeple on it and, if a road or city with their builder is extended, the player will be granted a double turn and will draw another tile and will place it as usual. Everything like a normal turn. (2/2010)
  28. Icon World Black.png Note that a purchased bazaar tile will not trigger an auction, but any drawn bazaar tile will trigger an auction. Nonetheless, as discussed in the Q&A clarification in the Other expansions section, the auction may not happen immediately if the drawing of the tile occurred during a builder-turn during a bazaar round.
  29. Icon Double Arrow Black.png In the latest 1st. Edition clarifications, the fairy wasn't allowed to be placed in a castle, although it was previously allowed in the Big Box 3 rules.
  30. Icon World Black.png The ZMG rules use the verb "complete" but the original German HiG rules use "expand" instead, that is the intended meaning.
  31. Icon Double Arrow Black.png There is another version of this rule that states that you perform your builder-turn before the bazaar. This discrepancy (originated from the mistranslation of a clarification from 5/2013) was considered a valid alternative by HiG as it doesn't change the game much. The rationale behind the original rule is that the bazaar is an action derived from the tile placed in the first part of the double turn, so it should be resolved before the builder-turn is carried out. (08/2016)
    Icon World Black.png This variant, described in the CAR and implemented by JCloisterZone as of 12/2018, may seem more intuitive to some players. It considers the events in the following order:
    • Draw bazaar and perform first part of your double turn.
    • ** // Start pending bazaars // **
    • Draw the tiles (still face-down)
