Carcassonne is a tile placement game where players collectively construct the area around the medieval French city of Carcassonne while competing to place followers on various features and score the most points. First published in 2000, the game's accessible yet deep design has attracted a wide fan base and led to the development of numerous expansions (eg Rivers) and standalone titles in the Carcassonne line.

    This game is so much fun. I'm really glad I picked this up in the auction house at Gen Con. I really like seeing how our game looks after we have finished playing!I see us playing this for a long time from now and I can't wait to try out some of the additional expansions for the game.
  • Van mama en papa
  • Though it was simple at first, have second though after realizing pro can simple wreck my shit because they have memorized all the pieces of the game. Field manipulating is about the best spatial puzzle in board game world
  • dont like tile laying games. this fell flat for me.

  • #Carcassonne @ 2p with my wife. One of her favorites, and this was a fun round.
  • #War Chest @ 2p. I got to introduce this to my brother in law, who really liked it. He even texted me about it later in the evening, so I think I'll be able to get this played with him again :D
  • #Sentient @ 3p. Played with a friend who had played once and one who had never played. Scores ended up super tight: 3 points separated the highest and lowest score. This plays super well at three!

Well I can't argue with her taste, I'm a big fan of #Monikers when there's the people to play it, or if I just want something light as well. It can cause a hell of a lot of laughs. But the urge for a big game constantly calls to me. 

In terms of the 2-3 games I feel are missing from my "introduce people to gaming" selection I managed to pick up one on Black Friday that an old friend had but I never had my own copy, #Mysterium. Which is a game that words for both sides. I find it's a great game for people starting out in the hobby, while at the same time just being niche enough to appeal to my own personal tastes. I'm thinking of getting #Wavelength in the near future but as far as the 3rd game goes it's a toss up between a few party game. Although I did back the #Creature Comforts KS as a way to weave in a worker placement game that's a little more complex than #Carcassonne

I'm not entirely sure if I'd consider #Carcassonne as a worker placement game. But I guess I can see it.

I played it a number of times, I don't know how many, along with #Catan and #Carcassonne sorta before I got into the hobby. I have not played it very much since I have come into the hobby. Also,I probably have not played it since 2017 or 2018.

Damn, that's an awesome collection, a good size too. It seems like you're into different stuff to me though, which is always fun and interesting to see. I'll definitely have to have a look into some of these games.

I only actually have a few games: I dove in really deep initially and bought #Twilight Imperium 4th Edition and then proceeded to buy #The Quacks of Quedlinburg, #War of the Ring: Second Edition, and persuaded my friend to buy #Clank! In! Space!

I don't know how much I can recommend these based on our taste to be honest, because with big war games you'll already know if you like them before you buy them. #The Quacks of Quedlinburg and #Clank! In! Space! I can certainly recommend though.

I've held off on buying more games for the time being and starting playing my wishlist items over Tabletop Simulator, and also waiting for Christmas to roll around. I'm not sure why but I've tended to avoid the more classic games like #Carcassonne and #Ticket To Ride, but I really should give them a go. I guess they just don't massively appeal to me. I have also heard that other people new to the hobby do usually like heavier games before they mellow out into lighter ones, so maybe I'm in that boat.

Have you played #Carcassonne with any expansions? Would love to try one out but not sure which

I would probably go with #Carcassonne. I mainly play with family, and my family likes it. It is also one of my favorites. Simple to learn and play, but every game is a little different. At least for me, it never gets old, even though I have probably played it more than any other game.
