Carcassonne is one of the classic tile laying board games. I has well established itself as a class with over 10 million games and expansions sold. I had know about it for some time but only recently had a chance to play it. Initially I found the game slightly complex but after a round or two the whole game clicked. I can easily say it has become one of my favorite strategy games. Easy to setup and play and offers a good depth of games play without being overwhelming.
