MOAR CARCASSONNE - Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers

Carcassonne. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and the mammoth starts throwing menhirs at you.

It's pretty obvious that Carcassonne is one of the most played boardgame worldwide.

So now it is time for a new version to join Board Game Arena:
Hunters and Gatherers.
Where you play as... Hunters and Gatherers.


Thousands of years before the people of Carcassonne built mighty walls and castles, their ancestors roamed the land, hunting, fishing, and gathering what they needed to survive. Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers combines the classic tile-laying gameplay of the original Carcassonne with new thematic features and adjusted scoring rules for an all-new challenge. Players take turns placing tiles to expand a prehistoric landscape full of forests, rivers, lakes, and grasslands, and then score each natural feature. Wild animals from mammoths to saber-toothed tigers lurk in the grasslands, affecting your hunter score at the end of the game.

Belt, emergency idea generator, activate!

Same Game, New Features !
One of the highest-rated standalone versions of Carcassonne of all time, Hunters & Gatherers includes everything from the original published in 2002, plus updated art and additional menhir tiles, bonus tiles that give you extra turns to take special actions. When you complete a forest with a menhir, take an extra turn to draw and place a menhir tile and resolve its special effect—anything from scoring bonuses to a wildfire that chases all saber-toothed tigers away from a connected grassland. Use menhir tiles to your advantage to get ahead of your opponents!

Will you strategically place your tribe members and win the game?

You can find it out right here:

We're still thankful to the same people, as the game is handled by the same dream-team from Hans Im Gluck, the board game designers Bernd Brunnhofer and Klaus-Jürgen Wrede, and of course our hand-down fantastic developer, LeSteffen.

You'll find your usual Carcassonne interface, so if you already know how to play Carcassonne, you'll feel at home.
Except for the scoring and a few options.
You'll be glad to find that there is a way to try out tiles before playing, and many other options.
You shouldn't be saying "let's do that again I think I blinked".

Ready to mark down history by being the proudest tribe of all?
You can play it now ;)

This is a great game, but yes, chalk up another user baffled by the Flanders thing. It's quite jarring to see a copyrighted Simpsons character slapped onto copyrighted game box artwork. All it does for me is give a sense of unease that maybe BGA isn't as scrupulous about respecting game copyright as I thought it was.

Ok, so Ned Flanders has shown up on two game announcements. Two Hans Im Gluck announcements. Perhaps there is a new Hans Im Gluck Simpsons game coming as a BGA release?

The green color blends in too much with the tiles so is hard to see the meeples and huts. Excited to play!
