"You wont be sorry you brought this game"
4 stars"

This is a great game. It's a tile based game where all players build castles, roads, churches and surrounding farm land collectively. Players place individual player pieces on these resources and gain points when they are completed.

The game is quick to play probably about 30 minutes. Though there is an element of luck( depending on the tile you pick up) It's a challenging game which allows you to utilise cunning strategy to advance your own interests, cash in on other players developments and to thwart opponents advancements. A game that can be played again and again without boredon seeping in. Its very easy to learn and the rule book is only about 3 pages long and is comprehensive and easy to understand.

I think this game would work for a variety of levels. Children over 7 would be able to pick it up. However, the subtle range of strategy that can be utilised make it a challenging adult game as well.

One of the better cheaper board games on the market. A great investment for anyone interensted in board gaming

"A good way to introduce tabletop games"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A great game to have as part of, or to start your collection. Very easy to pickup and play with friends. The tile laying mechanic means no board so you can take it anywhere.

"Great little game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Seems a little complex when you open it up but you learn to play it in about five minutes and then spend hours having fun, trying to outwit each other in a game of strategic chance. I see expansions in our future to open up the game further too!

Description

The Classic Award-winning Game Is Back With A Whole New Look! Carcassonne 2.0

In Carcassonne, players build the area surrounding this impressive city, one tile at a time. They then place a follower on fields, cities, roads or monasteries in order to score as many points as possible. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers and thieves, depending on where they are placed. No matter their function, the player who will most cleverly use their followers will win the game.

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

Review by Dan Becker
"Worn, dented, scratched. That's how I would describe my Carcassonne box. Wrinkled, folded, spindled. That's my Carcassonne rules sheet. Scuffed, rounded, frayed. That's my Carcassonne tiles. It's all well worth it though, for Carcassonne is my most played game since purchasing it 5 months ago. In fact, the same is true for my games group, as Carcassonne was the most-played board game in 2000 (see my article on Games Played in 2000) and is on its way to be the most-played game of 2001 as well.

In this review, first I will go over the rules briefly, then I will discuss some positive and negative aspects about the game, and finally I will discuss some game strategies…" Read full review.
