Video Review: Carcassonne


In the game of Carcassonne you can explore a land that changes with every game, staking claims and earning points. Create a Knight in your growing city, and when the city is complete, tally points for the size of the city. Create a highwayman on a country road, and get more points the longer your road is. Or cut off you opponent’s development, leaving him with tiny villages and stunted fields. Carcassone is designed for up to 5 players, but makes an especially great 2 player game. Beautifully designed on thick, elegant tiles.
Contents of Carcassonne:

84 land tiles
1 scoring track
40 wooden followers in 5 colors
1 rule booklet


  1. I introduced Carcassonne to my friends at work who 18 months ago were non-gamers. We now play Carcassonne regularly at lunchtime but also have had gaming nights where we play every expansion we own. That stretches the game out to about 3 hours with five or six players. It’s still fun!

  2. My mate got the game, have played it a few times and love it.

    One question though, the video review makes no mention of the river pieces, which I’m pretty sure are meant to be played first up to define the board (which is possibly why they had unplayable pieces?)

  3. I see what your saying. Perhaps an email to our friends at “Board To Death TV” would get you the answer you require
