Unplug and Play at the Library

One night a month (and the occasional Saturday), we invite you to "unplug"--turn off your TV, cellphone, computer, and video games--and join others to play board games at the library. Choose from our collection of 150+ games or bring one from home to share. Light refreshments are provided for program participants.

Carcassonne: Star Wars


Carcassonne: Star Wars combines the exciting adventures of the Star Wars universe with the gameplay of Carcassonne, with the known rules of the game being simplified through clever changes that bring an entirely new feel to the game.

This is similar to Carcassonne but with Roads replaced with Trading Routes and claimed by Merchants instead of Robbers, Cities replaced with Asteroid Fields and claimed by Explorers instead of Knights, and Cloisters replaced with Planets and claimed by Conquerors instead of Monks. There is no farming equivalent. Faction symbols (Empire, Rebel Alliance and Bounty Hunters) provide scoring bonuses regardless of what faction your Meeples belong to. Majority control is determined by dice rolling with the highest result rather than the sum determining the winner, although tiebreaks and defeats still provide some points. A player receives dice equal to the number of his Meeples involved in the majority control plus additional ones for using his large Meeple and any matching Faction symbols but this is always capped at three dice. One notable change is that Planets can be conquered by placing tiles adjacent to the Planet tile where the player now has the option of placing a Meeple on the adjacent Planet tile instead of on the tile he placed.

There is also a four player team variant where it is the two Empire colors (black/Darth Vader and white/Storm Troopers) versus the two Rebel Alliance colors (red/Luke Skywalker and green/Yoda). Orange/Boba Fett is not used.
