"Ye olde game of bein' a Lord"

Mobile version of the board game "Carcassonne"

Carcassonne, the board game, is one of those games that seem they were old before the war, when it's indeed a modern game that became a classic as soon as it was released. It takes its name from an archetypal medieval southern French village.

If you haven't ever played it, don't worry. There are just a few rules clearly explained in a brief yet concise tutorial. It's a turn based game where players create together a landscape placing tiles and earn points deploying followers on. Turn by turn, players try to earn as many points as they can controlling towns, roads, farms and monasteries. There's no fight, just strategy. In fact, as luck is rather no involved, it's mere strategy.

Game can be played alone through twelve different challenges; against AI foes (it should be highlighted that AI plays quite well and it's quite a challenge to defeat it) or, and here's the best part of it, with up to four human players via hotseat. Includes the expansion pack "The river", which adds river tiles.

In addition to English, are also supported Spanish, German and French. An odd midi-like troubadour theme accompanies all along the match. Graphics are functional, resembling the original board and pieces. No lags, freezes nor forceclosings detected. Loading times are brief and no additional downloads are required.

Highly recommendable for every board game or strategy lover, parents and children alike.

    I've played for two days with various combinations of the expansions. It's a great way to learn the expansions since you are guided in the rules and scoring. There are still some bugs apparently: I can't place my "big" follower until it is my last available follower, and with the Festival expansion when I am prompted to remove a follower, it is impossible to do so. I can select the follower, but n

    I purchased this app in October. I've tried installing it a couple dozen times with no luck. Error message simply says that it was unable to install on device or SD card. I have yet to get a response from the developers as well. Quite frustrating.

    I like them both but prefer Android over IPad except for one thing; IPad brakes down the scoring move by move. As the the scoring is very complex this is very useful.
