Product Description

The imposing silhouette of Carcassonne sits like a throne in the light of the setting sun. The city also acts as a fortress, protecting those who live there with its impenetrable walls. Visit the city to discover its many features and to learn why it is so magnificent.

Carcassonne: the Castle is an exciting tile-laying competition between two players. Inside the castle walls, the city grows as the players place tiles and their followers: knights to guard the towers, heralds to spread the news, and merchants to sell their wares in the markets. The player who makes better use of his followers will lead the race around the castle wall, which is also the scoring track for the game. There are several items waiting on the castle wall for the first player to reach them. Each will prove useful to the player who acquires them.

Great Concept... Poorly Executed.
July 28, 2007

I like almost all of the other Carcassonne games except this one. I like the idea of limiting the space where you can place the tiles. However the placing of the tiles in any which way you want seems illogical to me. With the rule of placing like tile faces to like tile faces eliminated, I think it makes the game too easy. So after a game or two, you might want to consider invoking that rule again. I really enjoy finite games like this, but I think the execution was poor, perhaps even rushed to market, or whatever, but the fact is, to me it doesn't shine as bright as the others. I actually like Ark Of The Covenant better than this. Three stars for effort.

And remember you can't pass "GO" if you don't play the game!!!!

My favorite game
November 29, 2006
This is my all-time favorite game for 2 players. A good mix of luck and skill keeps players of varying skill levels engaged. The play moves along at a steady page, and the pleasing visuals add to the enjoyment. It was fun right out of the box, but after a dozen sessions we are still learning strategies. This game has us trying to find more game-playing time in our lives.
Great Twist
March 05, 2006

This edition is a great twist on a fun game. When my cousin and his family moved away they took my best game players with them. But Carcassonne Castle is great for my husband and me. It's similar to Carcassonne with some twists.

Very enjoyable.
