What is Carcassonne Junior about?

My First Carcassonne, also known as Carcassonne Junior, is designed for ages four and up. The original Carcassonne core game design remains, but counting scores is no longer needed.

The medieval city’s residents celebrate the holiday by releasing sheep, chickens, and cows into the street. Help the children of Carcassonne bring the animals home by laying tiles!

Build the city by placing tiles each turn. The streets of Carcassonne fill with children as the game progresses.

You get pawns each time you close off a street with at least one child dressed in your player color. Win the game by placing all your pawns!

The setup time and understanding of the rules were quick and easy. A simple game, it adds a lot of different elements, such as strategy, competition, resource management, but also luck.

I think the best thing about it is the quick playtime and replayability factor.

Kids’ games rely heavily on dice or spinners (and do not require any skill whatsoever.

I wanted to find a game for my child who has recently turned five that will require her to think, to plan ahead, to strategize, and to consider aspects of the game that are happening around her. It does precisely that with this game. Kids need challenges, and this encourages critical thinking.
