Carcassonne by Z-Man Games available at Gnome Games
Carcassonne is a simple yet rich game inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name. It is a tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around their city. Roads, monasteries, fields – it’s up to you what you want in your kingdom. But tiles have different benefits, and it takes strategy to place your tiles wisely! Followers will collect at features in your landscape, and take on different roles depending on their surroundings. Cloisters of monks surround the monastery, while thieves line the winding roads. As the map grows, so does the opportunity to sabotage your opponents’ plans! Do you want to keep your head down and focus on your own growth? Or will you stick your nose into what your opponent is doing in and try to steal away their points? Either way, Carcassonne provides so many ways to play that it will appeal to beginner and veteran gamers alike.
