We are continuing to work on further expansions. Please don't hesitate to tell us which one you'd like to see next!

Yes. In "Play with Friends" you can leave the app and will be notified when it's your turn again. No pressure though, unlike "Quick Play" there are no time limits.

Yes, of course. Up to five players can play on the same device.

To play online multiplayer, you need to buy the expansion to play with it.

• Can I play with expansions in quick play?

Yes. However currently we limit the combinations of the expansions in quick play to avoid fragmentation of the player base and longer waiting times for games. We try to give three or four useful combinations for quick play. There is also the "Automatic" category that tries to match you up with anyone who wants to play right now.

Need more opponents

I love the board game and this app is very true to it. Great to have quick play but I’ve found that sometimes it just won’t generate an opponent and the only other option seems to be the solitaire version. Also the game has frozen a couple of times leaving me waiting for opponent to play then told me that I’d timed out. Not sure what to do about this- there was no way to get back to the dashboard. So it’s fun, but it would be good to get rid of the glitches.

Very Addictive :) - I love it!

If you've played and enjoyed the board game, you are going to love this! Very realistic and similar to the real life board game. I had only played the board game a couple of times. Playing this App has improved my game play and strategy massively!! With all the Add-Ons and Full Instructions you cannot go wrong. Play against the computer or other players randomly matched from around the world. While you play you can chat on Messenger too :) - The App Support has also been helpful.

If you are wondering whether to get this App or not. Stop wondering- just do it!!! You won't regret it :)

Not restoring purchases

I had to uninstall the app because of purchase problems/glitch: the App Store kept bringing up a payment window for add-ons that I had already purchased: the only way it would go away was by uninstalling. I have tried many times ones to reinstall the app, usually without the same problem reoccurring BUT the app refuses to restore my purchases! Also refuses to let me repurchase! I love Carcassonne, have played for many years just the board game. The app creators told me to contact Apple. I have contacted Apple and the said they couldn’t refund my in app purchases because too much time has elapsed; so what can I do? Is it a glitch? Not happy with service so far from either Apple or the app creators. Total disappointment as I very much enjoy playing the expansions.
