Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name, Carcassonne is a tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around the fortified city.
Followers can take many different roles determined by the type of tile on which they're placed: Knights, Monks, Farmers, Thieves
Each role scores points differently, so you'll need careful planning to make the best use of your followers. For example, thieves are placed on roads, and score one point for every tile making up that road.
Players choose from tiles that depict: Cities, Roads, Monasteries, Fields
Each new tile placed creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers.
As the map grows, so does the opportunity for players to disrupt each other’s plans. Everyone is adding to the same map and only one follower can be on any given feature at a time—so if you don’t place a follower on something, someone else probably will.
Players score points by having followers on features as they're completed. The player who makes the most strategic placements of tiles and followers will score the most points and win the game.
