From the announcement:
Positioned along vital trade routes across southern France, the countryside surrounding the fortified city of Carcassonne is a hub of activity. Noble knights patrol the city streets keeping the peace as merchants peddle their wares in the market. Outside of town, robbers prey on unsuspecting travelers while monks and farmers live a seemingly idyllic life in the country.
For seventeen years, players have been able to explore this vast landscape in Klaus Jurgen-Wrede’s Carcassonne , the 2001 Spiel des Jahres winner. Each game transports players to medieval France where, using just tiles and some wooden meeples, they create an entire world brimming with possibilities. With its simple yet engaging gameplay, Carcassonne has captivated audiences from around the world since its debut in 2000.
