2001 recipient of the Spiel des Jahres award for gaming excellence, Carcassonne is a clever, tile-based boardgame set in the southern French city of Carcassonne, famous for its unique Roman and Medieval fortifications. Players develop the area around the city, one tile at a time, deploying their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers, and thieves, depending on where they are placed. Build prestige, power, and dominance in your quest to claim victory in Carcassonne! This new revised edition now includes a bonus copy of The River Expansion.

Great Game with a new publisher! Carcassonne is a classic tile laying game that has been around for about 12 years now. Recently, the US publisher/distributor has been switched from Rio Grande Games to Z-Man games (who also publishes the awesome Pandemic and Agricola games among others). The BIG DIFFERENCE between this version and the Rio Grande version is that this one includes the River tile expansion in the base game. Bottom line, regardless of who makes this game in the US, EVERYONE should have it in their board game collection.

Unfortunately, your local adult gaming store can’t play them all and just because they like it, doesn’t mean you’ll like it.Carcassonne was one of the earliest “German Style” games and put off playing it because many of those games haven’t aged well or have been outclassed by later derivatives. The more I looked at this one, the more it seemed like the latter. But, it was cheap, so I grabbed it.I’m so glad I did.The scoring is a little odd if you don’t have someone to show you how it’s done — I recommend reading closely, especially as it pertains to farmers — but once you get it, it’s simple. Because it’s simple, this is a game you can quickly explain to new players and have them “get” what’s going on right at the…
