The Peasant Revolts
General info and comments
This expansion has been developed for the Carcassonne basic game. All the basic game rules still apply in addition to the expansion rules below. You can combine it with other expansions - but at your own risk – that is, there will be no official rules for these combinations.
- 12 new land tiles for peasant revolts with symbols for the respective features.
Shuffle the 12 land tiles of this mini-expansion. Put 3 of them back into the box (without looking at them). Those tiles will not be used in this game. Shuffle the remaining 9 tiles and the other land tiles together.
Total Tiles: 12
Several tiles have a small illustration on them. The letters in brackets show which illustration is on each tile:

- The actions associated to the peasant revolt will take place even if the tile cannot be placed afterwards. The rules do not include any limitations if this situation would happen. Therefore, the actions would take place, the tile would be discarded and the player would draw a new tile. If so, the player could chain several revolts in the same turn.
- This sentence, misplaced in the ZMG rules, may be misleading and it has no effect in gameplay. It just stresses that your meeple has become a supporter of the peasants' cause. This would simply justify that it will not be affected by any possible revolts.
This wording is based on the German rules. The English rules read "Each time you choose not to place a meeple on the tile you just have placed" and it can be somewhat misleading. You may interpret that you need at least one meeple in your supply in order to be able to choose not to place it.
The German rules allow you not to place a meeple just simply because you don't have any left in your supply. In this case, there is no decision involved; it is your only option.
