Is Carcassonne the next Catan
? Fans of Germany's 2001 Game of the Year
, as well as newcomers, will enjoy another leisurely yet challenging tile-laying interlude. The tiles illustrate segments of rivers, meadows (teeming with mammoths, deer, and tigers), and forests. Each turn, reveal a random tile, add it to the array, and optionally place either a hut on a river or a Follower on a river, forest, or meadow.
This is a stand-alone game and does not require the award-winning Carcassonne
board game to play.
