Carcassonne is a clever tile-laying game. The southern French city of Carcassonne is famous for its unique Roman and medieval fortifications. The players develop the area around Carcassonne and deploy their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. The skill of the players to develop the area will determine who is victorious. The game is for ages 8 and up and 2 to 5 players.
This new version includes all new artwork as well as the River and Abbott expansions!
If you have the old version and you are looking to double your tile set with this expansion, it will work because the tile backs are identical, HOWEVER, the beautiful new artwork may clash a bit with the old. The mechanics still work properly, but depending on how particular or sensitive you are to the aesthetics of the game, it may or may not be tolerable to you.
This is one of my most favorite games of all time and I still play it at least weekly even after years of owning it.
