"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.

"Easy to learn but allows opportunities for strategy."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good family game for all ages from preschoolers up. If you understand the concept of jigsaw puzzles you can play, but strategic placing of playing pieces makes it challenging. Works well for 2 players but good for up to 5. Nice graphics on the tiles.

Description

Develop the landscape of a medieval fortress city one tile at a time in this classic game.

Each game of Carcassonne reveals a unique environment as tiles form a landscape of cities, roads, fields, and monasteries. Claim these features with your followers to win the game.

Carcassonne is a tile-laying game where players collectively construct the area around the medieval French city of Carcassonne while competing to place followers on various features and score the most points. First published in 2000, the game's accessible yet deep design has attracted a wide fan base and led to the development of numerous expansions and standalone titles in the Carcassonne line.

One Step at a Time
Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name, Carcassonne is a tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around the fortified city. Players choose from tiles that depict cities, roads, monasteries, and fields; each new tile placed creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers. Players score points by having followers on features as they're completed. The player who makes the most strategic placements of tiles and followers will score the most points and win the game.

Jack of All Trades
Followers can take many different roles in Carcassonne—knights, monks, farmers, or thieves—determined by the type of tile on which they're placed. Each role scores points differently, so you'll need careful planning to make the best use of your followers. For example, thieves are placed on roads and score one point for every tile making up that road. On the other hand, monks are placed in cloisters and score nine points—one for each tile surrounding the monastery—when the last of those nine tiles is placed. You have a limited number of followers and, once placed, you don't get them back until the feature they're on is completed. You'll need to consider whether to go for quick scores of low points that leave you with more available followers, or work toward higher points that commit your followers long-term.

Best Laid Plans
As the map grows, so does the opportunity for players to disrupt each other’s plans. Everyone is adding to the same map and only one follower can be on any given feature at a time—so if you don’t place a follower on something, someone else probably will. Clever placement of tiles and followers can deny other players points—or even steal them away. Whether blocking a city's growth or connecting with your opponent’s road to share the points, Carcassonne provides plenty of ways to use your cunning and outsmart your opponents.

Plan Your Way to Victory
With its simple yet rich game mechanics and eighty-four tiles that can be configured into numerous combinations, Carcassonne appeals to beginners and veteran gamers alike. This edition is entirely redesigned and modernized, and includes two expansions: The River and The Abbot.
