Each game of Carcassonne reveals a unique environment as tiles form a landscape of cities, roads, fields, and monasteries. Claim these features with your followers to win the game.

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.

  • dont like tile laying games. this fell flat for me.
  • Despite its simplicity, this game has plenty of strategy. Very good for getting non-gaming wives to play with you.
  • (2020 - 4) After playing Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers (digitally) The original Carcassonne feels even more flat. Playing H&G i was surprised to find it enjoyable since i wasn't a fan of the original but since then H&G has served to force my rating here even lower.(2019 - 6.5) Maybe a bit too light for me, or the hype around it was built up so high that it just fell a little short of it's consistent praise.
  • a good solid, relaxing game

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.

1. Prices are what I paid for them. I usually buy things on sale, discounted or even used. I also mostly play games with my wife, someone who likes light to mid-weight games, and my daughter, who is almost six.

#Carcassonne - $25

#Sushi Go! - $7

#Ticket To Ride - $35

#Barenpark - $30

#Stone Age - $35

#Draftosaurus - $22

#Superfight - $20

#Welcome to... - $22

Deck of cards with the remaining $4

2. #Shadows Over Camelot - I've always wanted to play the game.

Anytime! Just finally got around to watching now. This seems really really cool! Reminds me a bit of #Carcassonne with the tile placement but adding in that engine building economic aspect. I'm definitely putting this one on my wishlist!
