Product Description

Product Description

For its 10th anniversary edition Carcassonne will appear within a meeple shaped box. It will include beautiful crystal- looking meeples and 10 new special cards. The new cards and meeples are compatible with any of the current expansions.

Product Description

The 2001 recipient of the Spiel des Jahres award for gaming excellence, Rio Grande's 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, deploying their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields to build prestige, power, and dominance in their quest to claim victory! Klaus-Jurgen Wrede's genre-defining Carcassonne is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year! To mark the occasion, Hans im Gluck, the original publisher of the Spiel des Jahres-winner, is issuing Carcassonne: Jubilaumsedition, a new 10th Anniversary Edition of the game which includes all the contents of the original game, plus ten new land tiles and colored translucent meeples, all packaged in a blue, meeple-shaped storage case.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Version 24 July 2011

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I will not waste anyone's time by reviewing the game of Carcassonne as there are plenty of competent reviews available. Instead I will concentrate on reviewing this particular version.

The box it comes in is very nicely made and feels set to last a lot longer than most. Perhaps due to the meeple shape it is quite thick cardboard and very sturdy. The meeples themselves are a nice touch being transparent and quite heavy. Perhaps a slight gripe in that the grey/black meeples can be a little difficult to see on the board, surprisingly the green stand out well.

The mini expansion "festival" is useful as you immediately have more than one way to play the game. The expansion rules are extremely simple and don't really change the base game a great deal but do give a little variety.

In summary; if you already have Carcassonne I don't think this will really add much to your enjoyment unless you are a collector. If you are a first time buyer, quite honestly this is the ideal set to start with. It is well made, feels good quality, and has a mini expansion that doesn't stretch the game too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy rules, endless fun 21 May 2012

Carcassonne was one of my first non-Monopoly, non-pictionary etc... style of games. One of the better board games. Or tile game in this case. I only knew, via some top 10 list on the internet, that it scored very high. So I gave it a try and I loved it so much!

The rules are easy to explain, and after 5 minutes you're ready to go (start without expansions and gradually add them if you play with new people). At first you just try some things, but afterwards you discover new strategies (eg. connecting your farmer with someone else's) and better ways to score points. I love the fact you score WHILE playing, but also AFTER the last tile has been put on the table.

The extra mini expansions are also fun, but if you want even more: I'd recommend buying the first expansion too (Carcassonne Expansion 1: Inns & Cathedrals). This gives you more strategies and makes the game even more fun AND it adds a nice little river :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Carcassonne board game 9 Jan 2012

A good quality fun board game that does not take too long to complete. Unlike Monopoly or Siedler there is no trading between players, but there is an element of discussion during play that adds enjoyment and interest. We found the rules simple enough to learn on the first game but with enough going on to gently challenge. Not sure the anniversary edition is worth the extra cost, although we did like the shiny plastic pieces.
