  • Great game. Not to complicated to learn, but takes some time to get good at the strategy side. But also takes some luck. Expansions add some new elements to change things up a bit.Hoatzin23June 13th, 2016 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I like this best as a 2 player game, definitely after a few expansions have been added. Good amount of strategy mixed with luck, simple enough to learn, and nice for a more laid back gaming session.Devin3279December 23rd, 2014 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Jump in... buy the Big Box. The expansions add depth to an already enjoyable game. Playable by gamers of all ages and skill. With the expansions it can get to be a long game, but never boring.BluePawnDecember 22nd, 2014 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple

  • This is the game that hooked me in. It is still one of my favorites. A good mix of luck and strategy, great replayability and great for all sorts of groups. This one should be in everyones collection.dsieg1February 5th, 2014 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple

  • Nice game to introduce to new players. I don't rate this very high because other games I play are far more enjoyable.IgnitionMay 22nd, 2013 4 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple

  • A fantastic world-building game that's different every time, Carcassonne will have you raging over not getting that last city piece. Great mechanics, easy setup and breakdown, and above all, cheap!LoccloJanuary 17th, 2013 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Absolute blast to play! Scales well with more people and the numorous expansions make everything more fun! Very strategic as well. More experienced players will leave newbies in the dust!bobroxsJanuary 16th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is THE game that got me into hobby board games! I love the simplicity of the rules and the beauty of the game as the countryside of Carcassonne unfolds. I highly recommend this one.frahminatorJanuary 14th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I'm a big fan of the mechanics of this game. Pretty decent gateway game, and it's just nice and relaxing. I just don't want to play it as often as some of my other games.LaboratoryFestivalNovember 19th, 2012 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The first few times I played this it was a 9 or 10 for me. But it's really lost its luster after subsequent plays. I'm contemplating selling/trading my copy. Maybe I should get the expansions instead.oldhossAugust 31st, 2012 5 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Although there is an element of luck the best players are the ones that know how to use the tiles the most effectively. You can block your opponents and strengthen your own position.DoctorDHAugust 29th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • One of the best and most beautiful tile-laying games. Very simple rules (though scoring varies from set to set). Great gateway game!nyphotAugust 27th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is one of the games that got me into hobby gaming. Beware adding too many expansions, it makes the game too long for what it is. Randomly removing X tiles face down at the start works ok.CunningAllusionmentJuly 24th, 2012 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Along with Citadels, this is one of my favorite 2 player games. The more players, the more casual the feel, and I recommend that you play with a 3 tile hand, to add depth. This is a true classic.BuddytheRatJuly 23rd, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • great game that is different every time you play. With expansion packs you can create even more possibilities. While there is some luck involved, a good strategy pays off.scott_matsonJuly 23rd, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • My all time favourite! Carcassonne can be explained in minutes and the strategies are endless! I love allying up with friends to share points or stealing castles for your own.m.shaftJuly 6th, 2012 0 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is without a doubt a future classic. If you're looking for a first, look no further; if you're looking for an addition to you collection; you could do much worse. You don't need any expansions.Lambda_RedJune 18th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
