Carcassonne: The tile-placement game, with a piece of southern French landscape on it. (Carcasonne – a French fortified city in the department of Aude, in the region of Occitanie. A prefecture, it has a population of about 50,000. Inhabited since the … Yeah, you get the picture)
Tiles feature city, roads, lots of grassland for the farming – and are placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads.
Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. (Won my first game by laying all meeples to go asleep in the fields and won as farmers!)
When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.
