Let me start by saying I love Carcassone. My wife and I play this game several times a week and it is a great two player game. The thing that I can't stand is this version of the game. The box is in a stupid shape, all of the pieces don't fit easily back into the box and all of the Meeples are made out of clear plastic. These Meeples look good and all, but if you ever get an expansion you'll end up with part of your Meeples as clear plastic and the others as painted wood. That just looks bad in my opinion and I sent this version of the game back because of it. Maybe I'm crazy, but I like square boxes that fit all of the game pieces easily and game pieces that match with all the expansions. If you're like me, go for the original version of Carcassone.

Pretty simple to explain. One of my favorite games, but the meeple shape of the box is horrible. It will separate within a month. Buy the standard edition.

I got the 10th Anniversary Special Edition for Christmas and love it. We have now played 3 games and cant stop playing. I had played Carcassone at a friends boardgame night but this edition is gorgeous: it is smaller, more compact and has plenty of room for all the times plus 2-3 expansions. The player pieces are colorful crystal. I highly recommend this game for anyone who enjoys strategic games without complex, bulky rules. This game will become a staple for board game night at our home.

Buy this game. It is a great game, pretty simple. I wish I had games like this growing up instead of the mindlessness of games like Sorry and trouble. It is a great game where you build roads, towns, and claim fields. Pretty simple to play and understand.

I originally ordered Carcassonne on a whim after hearing great things about it. I really had no idea what to expect, or even if I was going to be able to figure out how to play.

I was extremely surprised at how much fun this game was, and how easy it was to learn and teach others how to play. I am not traditionally a board game player, but I fell in love with this game.

It usually is a decently short game and even with two players it can be finished in about 20-45 minutes depending on how long you think about your moves.

The real thing that affirmed this games addictiveness in my mind, was when my sister (who hates board games, and told me she would never play Carcassonne with me) after playing the first time, kept bugging me to play. She fell in love with it as well.

I think that this is a good game to consider for families, or just between friends. It's decently easy to learn (learning about farmers can be a little tricky at first) and is always a good time.

I bought this game to add something new to our yearly family reunion vacation, and it was a big hit. both my son and my father as well as those in-between enjoyed playing the game. I would definately recommend it. You can make it uncomplicated or get very stretigic with it. The only thing I find somewhat confusing about it, is the scoring at the end, that can get a bit tricky.

I bought this game because one of my friend has the travel version and my fiance loved it so I got this version. This is pretty much the same but you do get a few more pieces than the travel version. It is basically a puzzle with scoring so this is a fun game and can be played by anyone that can count and look at pictures.

The festival expansion doesn't really add much in the few games we played but it might be useful with more people or close games. It does add a few different tiles though so that is fun. There is an blow molded insert in the box that seems to hold the followers and tiles in place pretty well, although doesn't leave much room for expansions unless you take that out.

I only have two issues with this version, and they aren't biggies unless your not paying attention. 1) The followers are transparent so blue, green, and black all look pretty similar and I found myself moving the wrong ones sometimes when scoring or counting points wrong in my head during the game. 2) The shape of the score board makes it a little confusing when counting points, again not a big issue but if your talking to someone while your playing it's kinda easy to mess it up.

This is one of my favorite games along with Samurai. It is great as a two player game as well. If you enjoy the game, there is also an app version on Google Play, though it is either pass and play (great on my Nexus 7) or against CPU, just no online play.

----------
How to play:
Play the starter tile in the center of a table. Players then take turns drawing one tile at a time and placing that tile on a matching border tile. In other words, roads must match to roads, castles to castles, fields to fields. Players must connect their tile to an existing tile. This means that even if you have a castle tile and the only place to play it is on another player's castle, then you must. Unplayable tiles are discarded, but this is so rare that I have only had this happen twice in dozens of times playing.

The object is to put one of your seven Meeple on a road, field, cloister, or castle. This gives you points when you complete said area. Once you complete an area you retrieve your Meeple. The only exception is the field (for farmland). It sounds complicated, but after a few plays through it gets easier. The thing that makes this game interesting is that you can only place up to one Meeple on your turn, and that you cannot place a Meeple on a tile adjoining a tile which is under control from another Meeple. So if I start a castle and place a Meeple on that castle piece, the next player cannot add a castle tile and play a Meeple on it. But they can play the castle tile. This also is interesting because you can close off other opponents areas of control. They get points, but it limits the size and amount.
