A best seller for older kids to adults! Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etc. Players score points during the game and at the end of rounds. Rules are easy to understand and the game plays in about an hour. It's a strategy game but the element of chance in the tiles that are drawn makes every game different. If you like Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan - even Mexican train, this is a must play!
