Originally released by Hans im Glück in 2008 as Mayflower; when it was published by Rio Grande Games, in English, the name was changed to New World.
New World is a stand-alone game based on the Carcassonne series, but is not compatible with Carcassonne or any of the other Carcassonne spin-off games. The game uses many of the standard Carcassonne game concepts, but moves it from medieval France, to the early settlement of the North American east coast.
The players develop the New World starting from a representation of the east coast between Jamestown in the south, stretching up to Plymouth in the north. Leaving the coast behind, exploring ever further westward, players deploy their settlers on the trails, in the towns, in the farms, and on the plains. The skills of the players to develop the area and use their robbers, shopkeepers, trappers, and farmers will determine who is victorious.
No official expansions have been published for this game.
