In Carcassonne, players must build the area surrounding the impressive city, one tile at a time. You then must place a follower on fields, cities, roads and monasteries in order to score as many points as you can. The followers will become knights, monks, farmers and thieves depending on which tile they are placed on. The player who uses their followers the most effectively will win the game.
This edition includes the river expansion, 72 land tiles, 12 river tiles, 1 score board and 40 wooden followers in 5 colours.
