The land outside the city of Carcassonne is lush and green with rolling hills and small cities. In Carcassonne Expansion 9: Hills & Sheep, players can take advantage of the land to manage a flock of sheep, cultivate vineyards, and build hills. The shepherd carefully watches over his flock as they wander through the fields. Over time the flock can grow but be careful; if you wait too long to return your flock to the stable, wolves may attack. Add a thriving vineyard to grow wine around a monastery and increase its value. Get a better view with the hills and gain the advantage from the high ground. This is an expansion and requires the Carcassonne base game to be played.
