comment What is the best strategy to avoid large farms in Carcassonne?
+1 A nice analysis of the different expansions. I would also question the river I suggestion, but the river II tends to break up the farmland more. The dragon definitely discourages/prevents early farming. It tends to migrate towards high scoring farmers, as they can't run away!

+1 Thanks for this answer. I was actually interested in the four player game, but will definitely have to try playing with two at some point!

comment Take out double at first opportunity to double?
Hi Hazel - welcome to the site! Could you add a few more details, such as what system you were playing and the order of the suits in the hand you have given? (I think it's standard to give hands from spades to clubs, but that would imply weak hearts). You can copy and paste unicode suit symbols from here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_Playing_Card
