Z-Man Games Interviews Carcassonne's Designer

Carcassonne has been a fan-favorite game for many, many years. And while many people have played it, most don't know much about the man behind the game, Klaus-Jurgen Wrede. Well, that changes now because Z-Man Games has sat down and had a little chat with him.

From the interview:

Question 1: What was the loveliest/dumbest/funniest fan-message you’ve ever received?

There have not been any mean messages so far. Yet, some people may not like one or the other Carcassonne expansion, but that is to be expected. The selection should cater for all tastes. But there have been a lot of very lovely and touching encounters so far. One of those experiences was, receiving a handwritten letter from an old married couple, who was grateful beyond means, as I had apparently saved their marriage. They had been growning apart and almost separated at that point, when they randomly bought a copy of Carcassonne. From that day on, they played together every day, which is what brought them together and saved their relationship, which became very beautiful and fulfilled once again. This touched me deeply and made me very happy, as well
