Let us start by saying this is only an approved set of accessories for the game of Carcassonne, not a new edition to the Carcassonne family.  We have been provided permission with license by Hans im Glück to create the accessories for this game. However, we have been asked to not provide a printed game box or rule booklet to prevent confusion that this is an official edition to the Carcassonne family.

If you are unfamiliar with the game of Carcassonne, please view the following video from TableTop Games starring Wil Wheaton showing how the game is played:

TableTop Games - Carcassonne Video

You may also click on the following link to view instructions for the original game of Carcassonne from the English manufacturer, Zman Games:

And if you are interested in picking up the original game, please visit our website! :-)

What is The Adults of Carcassonne?

The Adults of Carcassonne is really a set of accessories providing a drinking version of the tile-placing game, Carcassonne.  This project came to life after having the idea of turning gaming tiles into mug coasters. After showing them to my friends, one of them had said it would be really neat to play a full game with them. Then it hit me - why not design the gaming pieces into shot glasses and turn my favorite past-time into a drinking game!  

The full set of accessories will include 40 1.5 oz. shot glasses in 5 player colors, 72 mug coasters (1 being the starter tile), and a rubberized scoreboard.  However, Kickstarter backers can choose the right set of accessories for them.  Mug coasters will come in both pulp board and rubberized "mousepad" materials.  Shot glasses will only be offered in BPA free acrylic, but glass may be offered if we blow through our goals.

We strongly recommend using a light beer or mixed drinks with low alcohol content as you will be taking several shots during the game.  A 2 player game takes about 3-4 beers per person, while a 4 player game takes about 2-3 beers per person.  Remember, please drink responsibly.  

Only a few new rules need to be known: 

  •  Every Meeple shot needs to be filled with the beverage of your choice at any given time (except while placed on the farm). 
  •  When a feature is completed, the respective player(s) take their Meeple shots off the table and drink them accordingly. 
  •  When placing your Meeple shots on the farm, you are to drink your shot before placing it right-side up or upside-down depending on your preference. 
  •  When moving your Meeple shot around the scoreboard, fill it up 25%, 50%, 75%, etc. when you reach 50, 100, 150 points, etc. 
  •  At the very end, everyone drinks the rest of their Meeple shots while scoring end game points along with their unused Meeple shots.
Don't worry about choosing the colors now.  After the Kickstarter is over, we will send a survey out to collect the colors you are wanting!

 How do Add-Ons work?

A survey will go out to ask what add-ons your pledge consists of.  To edit your pledge with Add-Ons, simply click the blue "Manage Your Pledge" button on the top right hand of your screen and edit the amount appropriately. International Pledgers (including Canada), please add $2.50 per Add-On for shipping.  Add-Ons require a minimum pledge tier of $7.00.  Please make sure to calculate the totals correctly as it could result in both of us being embarrassed. :-(

How will the Stretch Goals work?

  • Purple Shotglasses - Purple acrylic shotglasses will be offered as an available color option for the shot glass add-on and pledge rewards once the stretch goal has been reached. Backers pledging for the Adults of Carcassonne tiers will be offered a special price of $10.00 for a set of 8.
  • Abbey Tile Expansion - A set of 6 pulp board coasters or rubberized coasters will be provided FREE to backers pledging for the Adults of Carcassonne tiers once the stretch goal has been reached.  This will also be launched as an add-on at $5.00 for pulp board coasters and $10.00 for rubberized coasters. Rules for the Abbey Tiles will be the same as those included in the Abbey & Mayor expansion.  One new rule will be forcing all players to drink their unused Meeple Shots not in play as soon as an Abbey tile has been placed.
  • The Adults of Carcassonne Drawbag - A 38cm x 43cm Cloth Drawbag in Red with our game logo professionally screen printed with black pigment on one side will be offered as an add-on for $6.00 each once the stretch goal has been reached. Limited edition bag with only 100 being made!
  • Crop Circle I Expansion - A set of 6 differently designed pulp board coasters or rubberized coasters will be provided FREE to backers pledging for the Adults of Carcassonne tiers once the stretch goal has been reached.  This will be launched as an add-on at $10.00 for pulp board coasters and $15.00 for rubberized coasters. Rules for the Crop Circle I Tiles will be the same as the Crop Cirlce II expansion included in the Big Box 4 edition on the bottom of page 14 of the rulesheet. One new rule will be drinking your Meeple Shot you take off of the table if option B is chosen.  
  • Phantom Shots Expansion - A set of 6 clear acrylic shot glasses printed in 6 different colors will be offered as an add-on once the stretch goal has been reached.  Rules for the Phantom Shot Glasses will be the same as the Phantom expansion. Backers pledging for the Adults of Carcassonne tiers will be offered a special price of $10.00 for the set of 6. All other backers will be able to pick them up for $20.00 for the set of 6.
  • Tunnel Expansion - A set of 4 differently designed pulp board coasters or rubberized coasters will be provided FREE to backers pledging for the Adults of Carcassonne tiers once the stretch goal has been reached. This will be launched as an add-on at $7.00 for pulp board coasters and $12.00 for rubberized coasters. Rules for the Tunnel Tiles will be the same as the Tunnels expansion. At this time, we DO NOT have any option for providing colored chips as included in the original expansion.   
  • Bronze, Silver, & Gold shots - There will be a lot to offer with this stretch goal!  First, every backer will receive one Bronze shot glass for FREE! One Silver will be provided to backers with a pledge of $50 or more for FREE! One Gold will be provided to backers of the Adults of Carcassonne tiers for FREE! And if you desire a full set of 8 in Bronze, Silver, or Gold, add-on $20.00 for each set you wish to have. Backers of the Adults of Carcassonne tiers will be offered a special rate of $10.00 for a set of 8.

The acrylic shot glasses are more affordable than glass and are extremely durable making them harder to break.  We recommend washing these on the top rack of your dishwasher or using a non-abrasive sponge.

Rubberized coasters are made with extremely great quality and are flexible. Although they are machine-washable, we recommend using a laundry bag and dry on low heat to prevent fraying on the edges.  Color does not fade as well, even after several washes!

 Pulp board coasters can soak up quite a bit of liquid and do not bleed through! (unless you really, really try)  And if you do get the coasters wet, simply lay them out flat over night to let them dry and viola! back to normal again.  You may have to wet the entire coaster with water to ensure it dries flat.  They are quite forgiving given the material, however; you may always order extra to make sure you have back-ups.

Risks and challenges

Having worked with the same manufacturers in the past, there should be no unforeseen challenges with this project. Both manufacturers have delivered on time with quality products.

If we run into any delays, we promise to be as transparent and responsive as possible. We will have open communication to all backers to ensure everyone is aware what is being done after funding.
