This expansion to the Carcassonne game is of the same excellent quality as the base game. The components look great. Although this expansion often splits carssonne players in terms of poularity, I must say I am in the "love it" camp. The expansion has three main additions , these are : 1) the introduction if a dragon and princessess that remove meeples from their tiles, 2) portals that teleport your meeples and 3) a fairy that improves yoyr scoring and protects you from the dragon . These additions add a flavour of fantasy to the game that some may feel is too detacted from the original game but with my young family it is very popular and adds a light layer if counter attacking that we enjoy. Love it .
