Special rules for the 12 river tiles: Remove the special starting tile from the game. Instead, begin the game by laying the spring that starts the river. Set aside the lake tile and shuffle the remaining 10 river tiles face down and draw from these before drawing from the tiles from the normal game. These tiles are played and followers may be played as in the normal game with one exception: a river tile may not be placed so that the river makes a U turn. Followers may not be placed on rivers. Once these 10 river tiles have been played, the next player plays the lake and then play continues with the normal tiles.
Klaus-Juergen Wrede created Carcassonne.
For 2 - 5 players aged 10 and up.

Carcassonne is a great game for people of all ages. The rules are simple enough that it can be taught in a few minutes, but there is enough depth here to keep you coming back again and again. The only thing that serious gamers might not like about this game is the luck factor of the random tile draw, but I think the strategy behind the tile and worker placement more than makes up for this. You have to balance your need for scoring at the endgame (once you place farmers, you never get them back) versus scoring immediately during the game (thieves, monks, and knights are all returned to you once their respective objects are completed).
This game has been an instant hit with everyone that I've showed it to, especially people I would consider "non-gamers." I would highly recommend this as a "gateway game" if you're looking into getting people interested in the hobby. I give this game five stars because, although the luck factor of the tile draw may be a bit of a hindrance, the accessibility and fun factor of this game more than make up for it.

If you're tired of playing card or trivia games, this game is for you. I can sit around with a few friends and easliy spend an hour "tormenting" each other to great amusement. Tons of fun!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

After getting down all the rules "and we even had to pick up on some as we went along" the game is simple and fun. The general idea and game-play is easy, but the scoring aspect can get a bit confusing. It's also a good game to make up or modify your own rules for "we figured out a great drinking game with it, too". A great pick for people who like roleplaying type, puzzles, or Risk-esque games.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
