BGWS 032 – Carcassonne: The Discovery

Carcassonne is a tile-laying game, highly recommended for families and new players to Eurogames. (14:04)

This week on Board Games with Scott, host Scott Nicholson explores Carcassonne: The Discovery. Carcassonne is a series of games; the original one was about building cities and fields, and the resulting board looked like Carcassonne in France. There have been many other Carcassonne games in the line; this one was designed for new players to the series. The result is a good introduction to not only tile-laying games but these types of eurogames as well. (Also, seasoned players of the series should take a look – this version of Carcassonne has some key differences that give it some interesting decisions.)
