Carcassonne is a tile-based board game that was first released in 2000. It is named after the medieval fortified town of Carcassonne in southern France, which is famous for its city walls and fortifications. In the game, players take turns placing tiles to create a landscape, and then placing meeples (small wooden figures) on the tiles to claim cities, roads, fields, and other features for points. The game is known for its simple rules, strategic depth, and high replayability, and has won numerous awards since its release.
