Il festival (1° edizione)
Informazioni generali e commenti
This expansion has been developed for the Carcassonne basic game. All the basic game rules still apply in addition to the expansion rules below.
- 10 nuove tessere paesaggio (ognuna con il simbolo del festival dei 10 anni)
The standalone version also includes:
- 2 special tiles with the rules in German and English, not used as land tiles.
Mischia le 10 tessere Festival con le tessere Paesaggio del gioco base.
Posizionare una tessera
When a player draws a tile with a festival symbol on it, he or she should place the tile according to the usual rules.
Schierare un seguace
Il giocatore deve poi scegliere tra:
- deploy one of one’s own figures to the tile in the usual way; or
- return one of one’s own figures    from the entire playing area  to his or her supply.   
Il giocatore può anche scegliere di non fare nulla di quanto sopra.
Captured followers (from The Tower expansion) cannot be returned to the player's supply in this way.
When you complete one or more areas (e.g. a monastery, a road etc.) by placing a Festival tile, you score them according to the normal rules.
Non è previsto nessun punteggio aggiuntivo alla fine del gioco con le tessere Festival.
Tessere totali: 10
Rules Tiles: 2 (standalone version only)

- This “expansion” is really a part of HiG and RGG’s Jubilee Edition of Carcassonne, which essentially consists of a deluxe version of the basic game and this mini-expansion.
- All of one’s own figures are meant here, including normal and big followers, wagon, mayor, builder, pig, barn, shepherd, phantom, CII abbot, and CII ringmaster. (5/2015; updated 12/2018)
No scoring would be applicable to any follower or special figure, including the shepherd and the CII abbot. Note that:
- If a shepherd is removed, no Herd flock into stable action is invoked and no flock scoring would take place. There is no official clarification about what happens in this case to the shepherd's flock, but it is reasonable to leave it as is on the game board. If it is shared with one or more shepherds, they would not be affected; otherwise, the flock could be claimed by a new shepherd and it would be an analogous case to the sheep found on some tiles in 1st edition minor expansions such as The River III or Halflings II.
- It would be odd to use this expansion to remove a CII abbot, as it has its own retrieval mechanism that involves scoring.
- A player cannot return a figure from another player. Also, a player cannot return a neutral figure (such as the fairy or the dragon).
- By specifying “entire playing area,” this allows removal of followers from the City of Carcassonne (even if the Count is in the same space) from The Count of Carcassonne, the Wheel of Fortune crown spaces, the City of Leipzig from The Markets of Leipzig and therefore a bathhouse from The Barber-Surgeons. (updated 12/2018)
- The RGG 10-year anniversary edition rules actually use the term “followers” for both bullet points. The new version of the Festival tiles sold separately through publisher CundCo also uses the term “followers.” However, the official HiG reading remains “figures.” (updated 5/2014)
- If the Festival is used to remove a follower, the Phantom can still be placed on that turn. (11/2013)
- If the Festival is used to remove a follower, the Fairy cannot be moved, as an action was still taken in the “Move Wood” phase. (5/2014)
