Carcassonne Board Game

Carcassonne

You will develop medieval walled cities, roads, fields and cloisters as you play this game. Each turn you draw a tile, match it somewhere on the board, and choose if you want your followers to work on that tile. It's an easy game to pick up, but a hard one to become good at.

  • Great casual game with a good mix of strategy and luck. Plays well with two players and has a definite end (run out of tiles), which both are big pluses. We still have fun even after many plays.Noah and Katie 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I like that this game has different "levels" of expertise. You can learn it quickly, but start to understand the deeper strategy later on. Even when you understand it, its not easy to always win it!Jesse Sutherland 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A true classic in modern board gaming. It takes minutes to learn, but a long time to master. One of the best 2 player games there is. Tons of strategy at play, as the board it different each playthougBenjo 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Carcassonne is a fantastic game for a smallish group. Fairly easy to learn, but very difficult to master. Many expansions available for further gameplay additions.alexp2_ad 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Very simple and relaxed game. The game can be somewhat political, so be aware of that element. I have yet to play any of the expansion, but I do look forward to doing so.stips 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is a great game that combines simplicity,strategy, and low stress level. I find it to be a great alternative to Settlers when I don't feel like ruining a friendship or a marriage.RossJ 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I find this game a little more on the luck side. This is because every turn you draw a piece at random. and it decides you move great game for 2-3 people. Once you get more I recommend other games.Noah 7 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.David Mann 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.shaft 0 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 8 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.BuddytheRat 9 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.CunningAllusionment 7 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!nyphot 8 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.Andrew Verticchio 8 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.Brian Fahl 5 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. LaboratoryFestival 7 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.frahminator 8 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!bobroxs 8 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!Shawn Hendrickson 9 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.BluePawn 8 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.Devin3279 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • 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. Aaron Sivertson 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
