THE CLASSIC AWARD-WINNING GAME IS BACK WITH A WHOLE NEW LOOK!
This is a wonderful game! It’s a joy to play, building Up a common landscape as a family, but each of us claiming little parts of our empire as we play! We really like this one, and it’s often played by all ages.
Carcassonne is a euro-style tile laying game where you build up a countryside full of cities, fields and roads. Simple enough: lay a tile to expand your features, claim ownership of a newly placed feature with a coloured ‘meeple’, score points when you complete a feature.
The basic gameplay, though, soon gives way to learning how to not only maximise your score, but also how to block others from scoring. Things can get nasty, and fast!
Simplified rules (eg no fields) can keep things easier, and the abundant expansions offer excellent variation if things get stale. (100% recommend the Inns & Cathedrals expansion, even from the start.)
Carcassonne will almost invariably feature in any Top Five tabletop games list. And rightly so. It’s easy to learn, devilishly competitive when you get into it and just all around great fun. A must for every games shelf..!
