  • Game Spotlight: Carcassonne

    Power to the meeple!

    The year was 2000. The Settlers of Catan had only recently been translated into English, and a small but dedicated groundswell of players was coming to discover an amazing new world of games. Into that world sprang a game called Carcassonne. Small, inexpensive, quick and easy to play, it was THE game to introduce to people who weren't so sure about straying from Monopoly and Uno. But that was fifteen years ago, and games have come a long way since then. How well does the original "gateway game" hold up today?
