This month we will focus on games that use the tile placement game mechanic. Our feature game will be Carcassonne, but we will also have copies of Takenoko, Tsuro, Tsuro of the Sea, Lanterns, and Patchwork for participants to explore.
What is tile placement?
Tile Placement games feature placing a piece to score VPs (victory points), with the amount often based on adjacent pieces or pieces in the same group/cluster, and keying off non-spatial properties like color, "feature completion", cluster size etc.
A classic example is Carcassonne, where a player randomly draws a tile and place it next to other tiles and has a chance to place a meeple (game piece) on the tile just played.

About the Featured Game: Carcassonne
Inspired by the medieval fortress in southern France of the same name, Carcassonne is a tile-laying game in which players fill in the countryside around the fortified city. Players choose from tiles that depict cities, roads, monasteries, and fields; each new tile placed creates an ever-expanding board on which players can then add their followers. Players score points by having followers on features as they're completed. The player who makes the most strategic placements of tiles and followers will score the most points and win the game.
