Carcassonne is a very good strategy game for beginners. It doesn't take long to play, the rules are simple, and each game has different results.
Carcassonne can be played by younger players, as there is no text to read. It is best played with two players, aged 8 and up. As of 2014, there are many expansion packs available, and the game can be played online. A travel-sized version came out in 2007. In 2000, Carcassonne won the Meeples' Choice Award for best board game. Originally designed by Klaus-Jurgen Wrede, the game has been published by Z-Man games since 2012.
