I managed to get a full refund in vouchers for a duplicate copy of The Great Warbow by Robert Hardy that I got as a present, so today I snapped up a copy of the award-winning Carcassone. It's been like one of those films you know you must see, but never have: a game I've never played and always felt I should.

It looks really good. Lots of beautiful tiles, and on a first read-through it would appear to have fairly simple gameplay, but room for cunning thought.


  1. J'y étais il y a vingt ans. It's an amazing place. I stake my claim to playing the French against you in any historical gaming.

  2. Yes, that's right - you will be the French, and I will have all the longbows ;)
