Adult Game Night - Featuring "Carcassonne"

Tuesday, November 17th @ 6:00 P.M.

About the game:

In this classic tile-laying game set in the southern French city of Carcassonne, players establish cities, roads, fields, and cloisters to build the most developed area of land and ultimately reign victorious!

The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland or some combination thereof, and it must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera. 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. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.
