Under The Big Top
Z-Man Games
Carcassonne, the classic tile-laying game has a new expansion, Under The Big Top

The Circus travels with its animals from place to place. Once the Big Top goes up, nearby meeples come to take in the attractions. Players who can lure meeples to their attractions can earn big points. However, these tiles do not score when completed but when another tile of the same type is played.

Acrobats are true performers.  As soon as they find a suitable spot, their 1st instinct is to stack and form a meeple pyramid. In order to add a meeple to a pyramid you must place a tile adjacent the pyramid tile.

The Ringmaster leads a fairly normal life, but he truly shines when he is surrounded by acrobats and the circus adding extra points when adjacent.
