The award-winning tile-based board game is now available for your mobile phone!

Just a few years after its release, Carcassonne became a modern classic and a must-play. Turn by turn, the players create a landscape by placing tiles with roads, cities, fields, and cloisters. The players deploy their followers - knights, monks, thieves, or farmers - to earn points. The player with the most points after the final scoring wins the game. The ever-changing landscape makes each game a new experience. With the official expansion "The River II" and 12 challenges, it never gets old. You can play against clever AI opponents or with up to 4 other players in a local multiplayer match.

“Great port of a classic game”

This is a faithful representation of Carcasonne, and has many features that fans of digital games will love, like Achievements and the ability to play Computer or Human opponents.

Caveat: You play against Human opponents by passing the game to someone in real life. There are no online gaming options. If you had friends over, you’d play the original board game version, but if you’re on a long flight or waiting in line, this is the perfect format.

Computer AI: There are a few different Computer player strategies, and some are easier to beat than others. If you’re good at Carcassonne, it shouldn’t be difficult to out-think the Computer opponents, but just like in the original board game, you still need some luck with tiles.

Cheats: You have the ability during the game to see what tiles are remaining, which is technically cheating in the original game. My suggestion is to either ignore it, or understand that the computer knows what tiles remain also, and play around it.

Overall, I think this is a great addition to my mobile gaming library. It’s not quite as faithful to the original as the iPhone/iPod Touch version (made by another company) but with the addition of Achievements, I think it’s easily one of my favorite digital board games for Android.

“My Portable Carcassonne”

Carcassonne for Android works well. I usually play against one of the many computer opponents, and each has a different skill level. It includes the River Expansion, which helps with replay value. A key advantage of a digital board game vs. a tabletop game is zero setup and cleanup time. I can play a game of Carcassonne in 10-12 minutes, and scoring is done by the computer. Another feature I like is that the computer shows all legal moves or tile placements.

A downside of the electronic version is the missing social aspect; most games are solo. One of the many reasons I play games is that I enjoy the social interaction with my playing partners. So even a great electronic adaptation of a game will likely seem a bit cold or sterile. Carcassonne for Android is a good value at $4.99, and being quick and portable makes it very worthwhile. I hope that other quality electronic adaptations of tabletops will be available soon.

“Not bad in a pinch ”

Digitial Carcassonne isn’t too bad if you want to play and don’t have anyone to play with. Similar to Carcassonne, but not as fun as actually playing in a group. They have limited computer trash talk but, that doesn’t live up to the real thing.

You take turns laying tiles, computers take their turns. After each tile you are given the opportunity to lay a character marker. Points are score and markers returned by the computer.

Pros

A chance to play Carcassonne

Cons

Sterile
No real life partners

I would love it if they offered an online real person play option. But it’s not too bad for the price and lets you practice your strategies.

Like I said, not bad in a pinch.
