Carcassonne

ThisNext members recommended Carcassonne and the service suggested it to me based on the other games I and my kids have played. Sure 'nuff, it turned out to be a fun and challenging strategy game that the whole family enjoys. I am consistently impressed by the wide variety of German-style games available. Carcassonne uses similar playing pieces to other games (tiles and "meeple") but the way they are used is completely different from other tile games, making it fun to learn and play. Carcassonne a bit easier (and faster) than Settlers of Catan and about the same level as Ticket to Ride; I think it's going to be more popular with our family than either.
