Farewell to Carcassonne

Start the game, place your first tile, it’s a town tile & put down your first ‘meeple’. Wait for your opponent to play their turn & then come back and place your next tile, oh look you can complete that town you just started, 4 points. The game continues in this fashion allowing you to use your ‘meeple’ in towns, roads or farmers to accumulate points. Then then end game sequence will decide on the uncompleted towns, roads & those important farmers. A close finish but you have just won the game by 2 points.

After playing 214 games & amassing an amazing 21,356 points, I am really yearning for some DLC content to freshen the game. There are many expansions on the board game from Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders to The River & The Plague. 

Developers The Coding Monkeys are currently working on some expansions for in-app releases which include Inns & Cathedrals & Princess & Dragons. I also understand that in the next update gamecenter support will be included, this will hopefully make it easier to set up games.

I’ve been thinking about doing an Tournament similar to the Words with Friends Tournament to reignite interest but I think a lot of users have left the game now & have moved on. If there is enough interest I will start a tournament off.

Until then I taking a leave from this game & I eagerly await the DLC content come on you Monkeys CODE FASTER :)


  1. I've not played much of this recently, but I will certainly pick it up again with the DLC. Congratulations for getting the number one spot on the leaderboard!
