Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France, Carcassonne is a tile-laying game. Players fill in the countryside around the fortified city. Tiles depict cities, roads, monasteries, and fields. Each new tile placed creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers. 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.
