A quick Google web search reveals this post for the Easter Festival (yes, it's the same author although a different name). The full rules for both expansions can be found in the downloads sections of Carcassonne Central (you'll need to register, but it's free to do so). Easter Festival - Rules Easter Festival - Tiles City Gates Rules - English translation ...

According to the FAQ you linked, the tile backs are compatible. If you want to restrict yourself to the new art style just to make it look pretty, you certainly can, but you'll be limited to any expansions that get (re)printed with the new style in the future. So if you want expansions now, you pretty much have to ignore the art difference. Among the older ...

In terms of complexity, it doesn't add much. It all depends on your GOO (Great Old One), in fact, to determine what rules you're playing with in the end. And the additional rules don't make the game harder or more complex. They actually give the players other avenues to solving mysteries. Plus, setting up or tearing down the expansions doesn't add that ...

I have the Forsaken Lore expansion and haven't yet seen that it increases playtime, but it may increase difficulty (much in the same way that playing against Cthulhu in the base game is a little more challenging than say, any of the other Ancients). I have played the Forsaken Lore expansion now a couple of times and it's just as lengthy as the base game.

The actual answer is a little more complicated and so doesn't match either of the arguments. While the original card's wording (Italian/English) doesn't match the effect, it doesn't affect played cards (like the Bang! you mentioned), nor does it affect other players outside of their turn (so Bang! cards discarded for Indians are discarded as normal). This ...

I play with the French version of the game which is very clear and could be translated as follow: During phase 1 every player picks his card from the discard pile if it is possible. If so, every card discarded during his round will be put face-down on the draw pile Translation from the original French card: Durant sa phase 1, si c'est possible, ...

From what I understand of the card, and from the wikipedia link which states players draw from the discard pile and discard on the top of the deck. is that when you play a card during phase 2 or if you make anyone discard cards (ex. Cat Balou) then it would go on top of the deck. My card (similar to VGO's translation but from Italian) has confirmed my ...

I just bought inns and cathedrals today and the new set of needles does include an abbot piece.

Carcassonne is very mutable. But yes the new game is compatible with all the old expansions. Including adding in a 6th or even a 7th or 8th player. Of course the more players you add the more difficult it becomes to keep people focused on the game and have everyone enjoy it. You can buy the extra pieces you need cover the 'missing' ones for extra ...

We usually play with Age of empire option and variant strategy card, using this set of strategy cards: initiative diplomacy II political logistic trade II warfare technology II imperial II It leads to very smooth matches, so it became our standard set up.
