Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name, Carcassonne is a strategic tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around the fortified city. Players choose from beautifully illustrated 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!Players feel as if they are actually building a large puzzle - with scattered cities and monasteries.It plays well in multiplayer mode up to five players, but also makes a tremendous two-player game. It's simple to learn and fun to play. Every game is different and most new players are keen to play again, it becomes addictive!
