"Tile-laying game great for gateway gamers"
5 stars"

For someone new to the realm of boardgaming, let them try Carcassonne. This is a great introductory game for people who only associate board games with Monopoly, Risk, Clue, Scrabble etc etc.

Carcassonne is a tile-laying game where you lay down square-shaped tiles to build up Carcassonne and the area surrounding it. The tiles will allow you to build roads, castles and farmlands that help you score victory points.

The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins. The game time is roughly 45 minutes and will likely reduce with more plays.

This is the base game, and expansions are available for those who want more variety.

This game is great value for money for the many hours of fun to be had by the whole family (and friends)! It is a great introduction to the world of Euro-style board games!!


Players develop the area around Carcassonne by placing land tiles. Each turn the area becomes larger as the players expand and add roads, fields, cities, and cloisters. The players may also deploy their followers as thieves, farmers, knights, and monks to control and score points for the roads, farms, cities, and cloisters. As the players have only a few followers, the wise player will plan their moves carefully and deploy followers when and where they can earn the most points.

Carcassonne is a simple, clever tile laying game, that brings new challenges with every turn. First impressions of Carcassonne will probably be that it is a game of luck. And while the luck of drawing the right tiles is high, this is a multi award winning game that does require skillful play.

Contents: 72 land tiles, 1 scoring track, 40 wooden followers in 5 colors, 1 rule booklet, all in a box approximately 28 x 17 x 7 cm
