Description Edit | History

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.

The Visigoths, long established in the surrounding region, moved in and claimed the city as their own. The Muslims invaded Carcassonne in the eighth century, forcing the nearby Franks to fight back and take the city under its authority. By the thirteenth century, Carcassonne was a haven for heretics known as the Cathars and the Albigensian Crusade was called to rid Languedoc of its heretical cult. The Hundred Years War came soon afterwards, and with it came plague, famine, and depopulation. The Renaissance which finally arose in the aftermath of these crises brought renewed life to Carcassonne, even as wars of religion tested the...
