Carcassonne game a TL;DR Review
The name, “Carcassonne” comes from a southern French city of the same name. That real world place is essentially nothing more than inspiration here with city features like roads, monastery’s and rolling green scenery playing an integral role in the game. Carcassonne is a tile-placement game that sees players take on the role of landscape growers, place a tile, grow your map, place land owners, rinse and repeat. It’s a classic game for a reason, it is very, very good.
A tile and worker placement game that’s fantastic for both new gamers and veterans alike. Sure it’s a little light on the depth, but there is some nice strategy to be had. If you’re a board gamer, it would be a travesty not to have a copy of Carcassonne in your collection, it’s a rare classic and there are loads of expansions available.
