Monasteries allow followers in cities to escape and come back to their players. The Count of Carcassonne (Der Graf von Carcassonne, 2004) Via new tiles, provides an incentive to complete other players' features: when a player does so, that player may place a follower in the city of Carcassonne, and then later move that follower in to a feature as it completed (commonly known as “paratrooping”). Twelve tiles depicting the city of Carcassonne itself. These replace the initial starting tile and support new game mechanics. A count figure, which can block paratrooping.
