If you are a fan of Carcassonne and are looking for a slightly different twist on the game, I would recommend this game. Unfortunately, because the art style is different, the tiles in New World don't fit with tiles from the other Carcassonne games stylistically. If you aren't concerned about the art, the features might still line up, so you might be able to use them. If you are looking for a wildly different take on the game however, you will be disappointed, as New World is at least 90% the same as the original Carcassonne game.
If you have never played Carcassonne before, I would recommend that you get the regular Carcassonne game instead. If you like it, there are many expansions that fit with that game.
The game board is well laid out, giving the players three main options on how to proceed westward - Plymouth, New York or Jamestown.
The players don't have many options in blocking or playing defense against their fellow competitors.
All in all, this is the type of strategy game that should be easy to pick up and play, fun for people who are interested with a two dimensional movement that combines elements of games like the Cataan series with some random elements as well, in a bit of a simpler format.
New World adds a new element to the game which requires a little more strategy of placing your pieces. With to no player pieces that are explorers you are forced to move west. Leaving pieces behind that are incomplete will mean that they die and no points will be awarded. A fun new twist to the game.
This has tons of replay value and is a blast to play.
Of course, basic Carcassonne is just as easy to play as any of these, maybe easier than H&G and Ark; and all the expansions only really work on basic Carc. But you could start here (or one of the other standalones) and then upgrade by buying a full Carc pack for a more "different" playing experience.

Really fun! Adds a fun strategy to the normal play of Carcassonne.Published 16 months ago by E. Nevares
We liked the original better. This one has more structure as you can't just place your pieces wherever, it only allows you to keep building from right to left.Published 19 months ago by Jessica R.
This is carcassone (for those that don't have a clue: it is a tile playing game), it is simple but a better mechanic on the farmers (now called hunters i believe). Read morePublished 23 months ago by G. Conlledo
I love this game. It's only slightly different than carcassonne but the mechanic is changed enough to make it an entirely different game strategically. Read morePublished on July 19, 2013 by B. Lynd
