Carcassonne - Basic Game - New Edition

Z-Man Games and Hans Im Glück joined forces and teams to bring out a new edition of Carcassonne. Our intention is to bring this fantastic game into a new era! Our wish for the new edition is that it is able to get more people into this great hobby that is board gaming, who may have been afraid to try Carcassonne because they were not drawn in by the original cover. We hope that these new players will develop a fondness for Carcassonne and join the legion of loyal fans.

Carcassonne has been present on the market for quite some time now, as you know. As many other products do over time, it was time to re-invent and adapt.

This edition is certainly not a devaluation of the outstanding artwork of Doris Matthäus. We talked with her about renewing the graphics, and we found that we could refine quite a bit, but we could not make it different then what it was before.  So new illustrations were needed.

The back of the tiles is identical to the existing backs in Carcassonne expansions. The front of the tiles has a different style, but as you can see on these pictures, the mix of “old” and “new” is 100% playable.

In Carcassonne, players build the area surrounding this impressive city, one tile at a time. They then place a follower on fields, cities, roads or monasteries in order to score as many points as possible. These followers will become knights, monks, farmers and thieves, depending on where they are placed. No matter their function, the player who will most cleverly use their followers will win the game.The new edition of the Carcassonne base game released on December 3rd!
