- As a Monk: In this option, the monastery is treated like a cloister in the base game, and all the normal scoring rules remain the same; or
-   Therefore, the abbot remains on the tile during the game and does not return to the player.
Scoring a monk
A follower placed on a Monastery as a monk follows the regular scoring rules of Carcassonne.
Final scoring of an abbot
An abbot on a monastery is not scored until the end of the game. For his abbot, the player receives 1 point per tile present in the vertical column and horizontal row outward from the monastery. The monastery tile itself also scores 1 point. Any empty spaces in the monastery’s row or column interrupt the series of tiles that score for the monastery. 
I monasteri in dettaglio
I monasteri in Germania
On the eastern shore of Lake Ammersee, Andechs Monastery, the oldest pilgrimage site in Bavaria, is located. It was founded in 1455 as a branch office of the Benedictine monks. The monastery is also known far beyond the borders of Bavaria for its beer.
The Eberbach Monastery is a former Cistercian abbey near Eltville. The monastery was founded in the 12th century, and with its Romanesque and early Gothic features, is one of the most important monuments in Europe. It gained worldwide fame as a filming location for the film adaptation of the novel "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco.
||Lorch Monastery |
Lorch, a former Benedictine monastery, is situated on a mountain ridge above the Rems valley, and is visible from far away. It was donated in 1102 by Duke Frederick I of Swabia and his family. The heyday of the Benedictine monastery was during the late Middle Ages. Even today, the charming monastery, complete with church, retreat, farm buildings and a garden, surrounded by a circular wall, is still completely intact, and attracts many visitors.
||Maria Laach Monastery |
Founded in 1093 the Maria Laach is a high medieval monastery, located on the southwest side of Laacher Lake. A landmark of this Benedictine monastery is the 6-towered monastery church, the Laacher Munster.

The Maulbronn Monastery, a former Cistercian abbey which is now recognized as a World Heritage Site, is considered to be the most well-preserved medieval monastery north of the Alps.

- As an alternative, the special Monasteries could simply be added to the regular tiles without removing the original cloister tiles. However, if only playing with the base game and no other expansions, this may be too many cloister/monastery tiles. (4/2014)
- These two options are available whenever a follower would be placed on the cloister: initial tile placement (including phantom), wagon movement, magic portal, flier, etc. (5/2014)
- Note that the special Monastery is only a single feature, even though it can be used two different ways. Thus, if it is occupied by a follower, one cannot place a Phantom there, drive the wagon there, or deploy a follower to it with a magic portal. (7/2014)
- If a second follower is placed on the special Monastery through use of the Flier, the player can choose to make the new follower either a monk or an abbot, regardless of the identity of the first follower there. However, if the special Monastery is already surrounded by 8 tiles, thus representing a completed cloister, the second follower must be an abbot. (7/2014)
- Because an abbot scores only at the end of the game, and this monastery is never considered completed, a monastery with an abbot will not score points for a follower in a castle. (5/2014)
- An abbot cannot be involved in a challenge with a heretic on a shrine/cult place, as the two scoring mechanisms are entirely different (the abbot’s monastery is never completed, so the heretic would always win). (5/2014)
- When using special Monasteries, the vineyard bonus is applied to the special Monastery if the follower is placed as a monk and the feature is scored as a finished cloister. However, the vineyard bonus is not applied if a follower is placed as an abbot on a Monastery, as the abbot scores only at the end of the game, when the vineyard has no effect. (5/2014)
