Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland or some combination thereof, and it must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera.Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.

During a game of Carcassonne, players are faced with decisions like: 'Is it really worth putting my last meeple there?' or 'Should I use this tile to expand my city, or should I place it near my opponent instead, giving him a hard time to complete his project and score points?' Since players place only one tile and have the option to place one meeple on it, turns proceed quickly even if it is a game full of options and possibilities.

I had watched many YouTube videos to start the hobbie with, Carcassone was one that gets mentioned consistently. I have now played this with older and younger players, the teach is relatively simple and the game plays out between 30-45 minutes. It has the feel of building a puzzle together, while being competitive enough to want to block other players from scoring. Loads of fun, quick to get on the table and best of all no dice hammering down on the table.
