This review is from: Carcassonne South Seas Board Game (Toy)
Z-Man seem to have been busy since taking over production of Carcassonne from Rio Grande. New sets and expansions seem to have been appearing regularly, which is good to see in a game that has been around many years now. We play as a family with the standard set + the river and Inns/Cathedrals expansion so far. The Carcassonne Winter Edition is a pretty variant of the basic game, but since the pieces don't really work well (visually) with the expansions we have stuck to the original game.

This South Seas variant is a stand alone game that uses rules somewhat similar to normal Carcassonne (so if you know that you will get this quickly) but adds a theme with warm beaches, gathering products and ships. Unlike "Winter" this game cant be used with normal Carcassonne expansions so is more limited in how you can grow with it. It seems to be a pretty worthy game in itself, and is certainly family friendly (ie less competitive) but this inability to combine with other sets or use the variety of existing expansions is a shame. Set up time is quick and play time is a very manageable 30 to 50 mins (depnding on player numbers and dithering)

In our view, this is a little less cut throat than "normal" Carcassonne - but the original offers more depth and potential. Having said that, if you don't plan to expand and/or like the theme this is certainly a good game worth considering. By all account Z-Man are planning to release more of these themed variants, so it will be interesting to see what they do next

We've not yet had a chance to play this game but we thoroughly enjoy family games of Carcassonne and offshoots and expect this to be similarly enjoyable.
