Sit down with your friends at the table and together start building meadows, fortresses, entire cities and roads out of small tokens, competing with each other to take control of more attractive locations.
A clever move may deprive your opponent of the ability to complete a huge city or allow you to take control of a great meadow.
What is it about?
Players draw random board pieces and place them on the table, arranging them next to each other to create new castles, rivers and meadows. When you create a new object, you can take control of it. The more chips there are on the table, the bigger the objects get, even huge, sometimes they merge.
As soon as an object is completed - such as a city or road - the person controlling it scores points and the control token returns to the player.
However, be careful not to suddenly discover that all our control markers have been placed on the board in unfinished objects! In this case, we are not able to score any more points!
The object of the game is to score as many points as possible at the end of the game when the table runs out of chips.
Why you MUST have this? ;-)
- Carcassonne is one of the real family games - real, i.e. games where children, parents and grandparents are not bored, one that every generation can handle and, most importantly, that practically everyone will like it.
- This game is the perfect way to spend time with your family! Aunt's birthday, Christmas dinner ... it's getting boring or you want to do something really cool with your family ?! Play Carcassonne!
- Carcassonne is a great game to break the first ice in unfamiliar surroundings. Like any good and simple board game, it can find a common denominator for every group of people :)
- As one of the few board games it is a great game for two people. A calm, hostile-free competition will appeal to every couple. This makes Carcassonne the perfect gift game!
- The game received the 2004 Game of the Year award in Germany!
- The game is made with the utmost care. The chips are very thick and stiff (probably the best games we've seen) and very well made. Wooden, multi-colored pawns are also of high quality. All of this makes the gameplay very enjoyable and the whole thing is perfect as a gift.
- Now with new art and refreshed manual!
- Includes mini extensions: River and Abbot!
