A 2001 recipient of the Spiel des Jahres award for gaming excellence, Carcassonne is a clever, tile-based boardgame set in the southern French city of Carcassonne, famous for its unique Roman and Medieval fortifications. Players develop the area around the city, one tile at a time, deploying their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers, and thieves, depending on where they are placed. Build prestige, power, and dominance in your quest to claim victory in Carcassonne!
Join Wil Wheaton and guests Jesse Cox, Nika Harper, and Kumail Nanjiani as they explore Z-Man Games' award-winning, tile-based board game, Carcassonne!
It's "Celebrity Poker" for board games! Hosted by actor, co-creator, and fan-favorite Wil Wheaton, TableTop brings gaming to the forefront of pop-culture, pairing notable celebrities with must-play tabletop games.
