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.
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.
