Instead of coming in a full sized box, a mini expansion is simply a collection of tiles (typically around 12) in a small box with minimal rules.
The current mini-expansions are:
- The River (2001) Now included in the Core Game published by Z-Man Games
- King and Scout (2003)
- The Count of Carcassonne (2004) Unique among the mini-expansion for including a figure: The Count
- The River II (2005)
- Cult, Siege, and Creativity (2008)
