The count of Carcassonne
Before the game, place the
12 Carcassonne city cards
next to each other in the
middle of the table as
shown. This city is now
the starting point for the
game. Remove the normal
starting tile from the
game as it will not be
used. Place the wooden
figure, the count of
Carcassonne, on the castle quarter and begin the game as normal.
When a player places a tile that causes at least one of his opponents
to score at least 1 point while the placing player scores nothing,
the placing player, at the end of his turn, may place one follower
from his supply on a city quarter of his choice. This placement is in
addition to any follower he may place as part of his normal turn, but
he may place only one follower in Carcassonne per tile placed,
regardless of how many scoring opportunities this placement causes.
Later, when a city, road, cloister, or farm is scored, all players with
followers in the appropriate quarter of Carcassonne (see below), may
move their followers from Carcassonne to the scoring feature before
the majority is determined in the feature being scored, unless the
count is standing in that quarter of Carcassonne.
The followers may be moved as follows:
from the castle to a scoring city
from the blacksmith to a scoring road
from the cathedral to a scoring cloister
from the market to a scoring farm
Followers on the market may only be moved at game end.
How do the players move their followers from Carcassonne?

Starting with the player to the left of the player who placed the tile
that caused the scoring and moving once clockwise around the table
(the placing player goes last), each player may move 0 to all of his
followers from the appropriate quarter of Carcassonne to the feature
being scored. Then, the feature is scored.
Followers, not moved, remain in Carcassonne. The followers in
Carcassonne may only be moved as described above. They may not be
moved in or removed from Carcassonne in any other way (e.g.
returned to the players’ play areas.
The count
When a player places a follower in Carcassonne, he may
move the count to any of the four quarters in
Carcassonne. From the quarter where the count stands,
no player may move a follower.
Example: a city is being scored and the count stands in the
castle (castle --> city). No player may move his follower(s) from the
castle to the scoring city.
The followers in the quarter remain there until the count is moved to
another quarter. The count will always be in one of the four quarters
- he never leaves Carcassonne!
Special cases with the expansions
Inns & Cathedrals (1st expansion): the large followers may also be
placed in Carcassonne. When a large follower is moved from
Carcassonne, he counts as two followers.
Traders and Builders: if a player is allowed a second tile placement
due to his builder and he causes opponent scoring (and not his own)
with both placements, he may place a follower in Carcassonne for
each placement.
The river: after placing the 12 Carcassonne city tiles, place the spring
so the river flows from the edge of Carcassonne. Players should try to
place the river tiles so the river flows away from Carcassonne. When
players place the river tiles such that the river flows around
Carcassonne, the players may encounter problems placing the river
