I found this DS version's AI crazy. It tries to merge
into your town even you have 2 or more meeples. Pointless.
I couldn't enjoy playing with it.

If you want to play against AI you should try Jcloister. It
doesn't do any merging/taking-over but it is very good at
blocking your move and taking fertile farms. It can beat you
sometimes!

Does anyone here remember the German computer version of Carcassonne by Koch Media Deutschland?

I still have my copy and it plays very impressively - at least to a weak player like me. I can fine tune the difficulty so that it gives a good challenging game. I can also turn up the difficulty so that it kills me every time.

One of the best board game ports to pc that I have seen. I think they went out of business but I wonder if anyone acquired their license?

I do. I still play (read: "enjoy") it every now and then.

I just had a look on the websites of the video game stores I usually frequent, and I couldn't find it anywhere, sorry!

I'm afraid I have never seen a copy of Carcassonne on the DS in the UK - I wasn't even aware that there was such a thing. Sorry, but I think your friend will find it very difficult to locate.

Does your religion have lightsabers? Nope? Didn't think so.
