A classic for a reason

This was my true gateway game. It's not the first modern board game I played, but it is the one that opened my eyes to the many different types of games out there. And it is the first game my partner and I got hooked on.

We like to play without farmers and almost co-operatively because the joy of Carcassonne [for us] is to create something together. That said, play it with a different group of people and it can be surprisingly cut-throat and competitive.

I love Carcassonne. I don't always choose it over other games, but that is a reflection of their quality, not a shortcoming of this game.

Favourite classic

This had become one of my favourites a few years back, so now that my siblings as they are reaching an age where I can initiate them into hobby board games, I decided to buy a copy for them to enjoy.

OVERVIEW

Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland or some combination thereof, and it must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera. Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.

During a game of Carcassonne, players are faced with decisions like: "Is it really worth putting my last meeple there?" or "Should I use this tile to expand my city, or should I place it near my opponent instead, giving him a hard time to complete his project and score points?" Since players place only one tile and have the option to place one meeple on it, turns proceed quickly even if it is a game full of options and possibilities.

Entirely redesigned and modernised, this edition includes two expansions: The River and the Abbot. 

2-5 PLAYERS | 30-45 MINS | AGES 8+
