Develop the landscape of a medieval fortress city one tile at a time and plan your way to victory. 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. Players fill in the countryside around the medieval fortified city, choosing from tiles that depict cities, roads, monasteries, and fields; each new tile creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers. Followers can take on many different roles (knights, monks, farmers, or thieves) determined by the type of tile on which they’re placed. The player who makes the most strategic placements of tiles and followers will score the most points and win the game. Carcassonne appeals to beginners and veteran gamers alike.
