Revisit the medieval city of Carcassonne, France in this land development game. Players attempt to strategically place a randomly drawn land tile in such a way as to fashion a city, road, cloister or field. Each player has 7 followers that can act as knight, thief, monk, or farmer, depending on their placement. Placement may be made only on the tile that the player just played and may not be moved until the completion of the city/road/cloister, so the player must plan ahead or place the follower on completion. Larger roads and cities score more points when completed, and multiple players can share in the scoring of a multi-tile completed project. Farmers cannot be moved throughout the game, but can factor heavily in the scoring, depending on the number of completed cities supplied by the farm. This is definitely a thinking game and will take playing a few times to get the strategy down. Games take about 45 minutes. 2-5 players.
A clever tile-laying game. The southern French city of Carcassonne is famous for its unique Roman and Medieval fortifications. The players develop the area around Carcassonne and deploy their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. The skill of the players to develop the area will determine who is victorious.
