Carcassonne. The world-famous French city, known for its imposing fortifications erected during the Antiquity and the Middle-Ages. This fortress, surrounded by magnificent walls, still stands today as one of the most unique French cities.
A 2001 recipient of the Spiel des Jahres award for gaming excellence, Carcassonne is a clever, tile-based boardgame set in the southern French city of Carcassonne, famous for its unique Roman and Medieval fortifications. Players develop the area around the city, one tile at a time, deploying their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers, and thieves, depending on where they are placed. Build prestige, power, and dominance in your quest to claim victory in Carcassonne!
This edition includes the River mini-expansion, which adds 12 river tiles to the Carcassonne experience.
