Excellent news! Question is - can I wait until Christmas? Heck, I might even have to but it myself. I got Civilisation for my DS last year just to scratch the 'ole board game itch.

Interesting to see what the other 'worlds' - Asian, Arabic and Nordic will be. Will they just be a simple repainting of the tiles or will there be thematic changes as well?

I am really hoping for thematic variations, but I will be happy either way. I hope the online play is great and I can find an opponent anytime.

You can find opponents on Xbox Live right now. CARCASSONNE with River I and II and King and Baron has been out for quite some time. Almost 400,000 people have bought it! I really enjoy it. laugh Even the AI Expert mode gives a good game.

Some screenshots of the game have been released: http://www.n4g.com/nintendods/News-384592.aspx

Like Catan DS, the game doesn't seem to utilize the top screen very well. Shouldn't it have a world map instead of just showing the score? Wouldn't that be more helpful and prevent the inevitable constant panning of the bottom screen to get a lay of the land?

Still, it could be interesting. In the least, it's nice to have more board games ported over to DS and Xbox.

It's not too bad. You're introduced to roads and cities first with abbeys coming in a couple levels later. The AI is a little insane. What's nice is that the game supports multi-card and single-card multiplayer. What stinks is that, like Catan, this isn't likely to leave the EU.

It's only base game and River 1.
