What is Carcassonne about?
Carcassonne is a tile-placement, territory building game centred around the world-famous French city, known for its fortifications erected during the Middle Ages.
In this game, players must build the area surrounding Carcassonne. They will place their followers onto roads and into cities, monasteries, and fields.
Players take turn to place tiles. This is how a landscape of roads, cities, monasteries, and fields will be created and expanded. You may place your meeples on these tiles, where they will become highwaymen, knights, monks, and farmers and hopefully allow you to score as many points as possible. Points are also earned at the very end. After the final scoring, the player with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
