Product Description

In Carcassonne, players build the area surrounding this impressive city, one tile at a time. They then place a follower on fields, cities, roads or monasteries in order to score as many points as possible. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers and thieves, depending on where they are placed. No matter their function, the player who will most cleverly use their followers will win the game.

Just played this tonight with my 8yr old son....we loved it. He thought it was great as he was losing until we played the last tile and counted up then he found that he had won! The rules are easy to follow and scoring is simple too.

Played the first game without the river tiles to get to know the rules then played a second game with the river tiles. Didn't take the farmers into account but will do later on once we get accustomed to playing, but that shouldn't be too long away. Both games took about 35 mins each so not too draining like Monopoly! No two games will ever be the same! Will be taking it to play with the rest of the family.

Expansion packs will be bought over the coming months to enhance the game....we just love it!

Update: Have now played this with Nana, who is 72, she loved it too...it really is a game for all the family!

Further Update: Have now played with Abbott and farmers and find it so easy to play, even my son! Have just bought the first2 extensions so will be delving deeper into the world of Carcassonne!

Great game.

I've been playing the app for several months now and couldn't resist the price drop of £15. I'd been watching the big boxes with more expansions included, but this offer was too good to resist.

In the box are the cardboard land tiles. In this set that's 84 ordinary tiles and 12 river tiles. Five sets of wooden meeples and an abbot meeple. Finally a scoreboard, that one meeple travels along to record your score, as you complete cities, roads and monasteries.

The game itself is very simple to play. You lay land tiles and choose to lay a meeple or not on one of it's component - field, road, city or monastery. They all have a slightly different scoring system, but if you complete them during the game you get points, if you don't complete, you still get points at the end scoring. The tactics and strategy involved can be complex, giving a 'simple' game a lot of depth.

It plays well with two players, but you can play with up to five. My six year old loves it, as it's simple enough for her to play .

The graphics and quality of the components is good. The rulebook is well laid out, with plenty of graphics and a good explanations

The only component I'm slightly disappointed in, is the scpre baord. I'd prefer it go higher than 49.

If you've never played before I'd recommend watching some of the You Tube videos's people have made about Carcassonne. There are plenty of reviews, game run throughs and rules explanations. Watching these can help learn the rules quicker and give you ideas on strategies to adopt etc.

You know what it's like. The prospect of another Christmas family get-together where you either play Charades (uggggh) or Monopoly (and risk all that bitterness and in-fighting just because Grandma makes up her own rules as she goes along) has you searching for a board-game alternative with a bit of bite.

I've had my eye on Carcassonne for quite a while before the price dropped enough to make it worth a go. I've got an 8 year old daughter so I figured this would be a good game for her to cut her proper board-gaming teeth on, but also a lot of fun too as we love anything involving building and territory a la Civilisation.

Carcassonne is one of those games that's deceptively complicated looking at first glance, but is actually very simple and easy to play and pick up once you've established a few simple rules. Picking out the centre tile for your map, you then take it in turns to draw other map tiles, join them on, add a few meeples to establish your score, and progress around the score board.

The real strategy comes from taking a gamble on whether to play all your meeples (and perhaps miss out on bigger city territories or longer roads to inhabit) or hold a few back hoping for bigger scores. The entire game can change from turn to turn, so it's fantastically exciting and strategic. The board quality is extremely high, all player pieces feel nicely crafted and made. Though the game time can be quite short, sometimes games can go on for longer than you expected as players all try to max out their scores to claw together the winning number of points.

There are tons of guides on the internet on how to play and best strategies, and there are many expansions to add to the base game to make it even better.

Brilliant stuff, and a better festive gaming treat than dratted Monopoly!

An exciting game for 2-5 players. we prefer Settlers of Catan but this is a good alternative when just playing as a 2. The peices are wooden and nice to play with, the board tiles are also sufficiently sturdy. The concept is not overly complicated which makes Carcassonne a good introduction to modern board gaming. lots of expansions are available

This one first got us back into board games after years of being sick of Monopoly, or Cluedo. It is so easy to learn - we've played it with people from ages 7 to 70 - yet because of the tile laying mechanics it is different every time. Add in an expansion or two (we have five) and you get even more variety.

When we play it with young ones we leave out the farmers/fields, as this can be quite tricky for little ones to comprehend. But there's still enough fun for grown ups, even so.

We particularly love the way it encourages players to co-operate in helping each other place tiles, which is excellent if you have young ones who are not graceful losers!

That said you can play pretty cut throat too, if you like, stealing fields and cities and, of course, the points for them. The points scoring system means you never really know who is going to win until the end, too.

It is a perennial favourite in our household and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to those who enjoy a game that's fast paced, easy to pick up, yet complex enough to keep you coming back for more.
