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.

13 History of Carcassonne Grand Campaign 1.4
The Roman colony of Julio Carcaso sat largely abandoned in the plains of Languedoc following the destruction of the Roman Empire in the mid-fifth century. 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...

15 Carcassonne Score Track and Starting Board
(( A4 Two Rivers Version )) Inspired by an upload by drewdane called "Annex and scoring track start tile" here are 3 versions of a Carcassonne Score Track and Starting Board that fits into a (1/2 size) expansion box if cut. The Score Track also fits in the base game box if uncut. PREPARATION: Print out the Score Track of your choice. Glue it to some card and cut the Score Track along the black lines. INSTRUCTION: * Place the central part of the score track in the middle of the table. Then, each player draws a score track tile and adds it to the 2 x 4 central part. Placing a tile diagonally is permissible. Players may place a meeple as tiles are placed. * If you have "scoring disks" (like the ones in Ticket to Ride), use them instead of meeples to keep score. it can get a bit...

0 Carcassonne Compact Scorecard (fits in Inns and Cathedrals Box)
Did you know you can fit all of the original Carcassonne game AND Inns and Cathedrals expansion in the little Inns and Cathedrals box? The only issue is the score card, which is too big. You can print this one out on card stock and it will fit nicely in the Inns and Cathedrals box, along with everything else you need for a complete game.
