Somewhere out there, there is a list of tabletop games that everyone should play. On this list, I suspect, is Carcassonne. Themed after the French-walled city of the same name, this German-designed tile-laying game consists of just under 100 tiles and tasks players with building castles, roads, and farms. Players score points for staking a claim in and completing various things like castles or surrounding a cloister with tiles. At the end of the game, incomplete projects as well as farms -- tracts of land that serve one or more completed cities -- are scored, and a winner is crowned.
