IGN has posted a lengthy preview
, the tile-based board game heading to Xbox Live Arcade
. Like Catan
is a popular European strategy game. The gameboard (composed of 72 tiles) is slowly built by the players as they attempt to build structures like roads, castles, and monasteries. The Xbox Live Arcade version also includes the River I
expansions, which have players building a river before other structures, giving gameplay a more set path and a different kind of strategy. Sierra plans to offer other expansions as future downloads. All in all, Carcassonne
is sounding like a solid addition to the Live Arcade library, especially for those that got a kick out of Catan
. Hit the "read" link for the full preview.
