In addition to Settlers of Catan, which I wrote about a few days ago, Joy and I also got another new game recently: Carcassonne. It’s a tile laying game where you’re basically trying to build roads, cities, or farms. It’s really not too complicated, but there are lots of sneaky ways to play your tiles. Joy and I have played four games over the past three days. She grudgingly played the first game just so I would stop pestering her to try out my new game, but ever since then she has been the one asking to play. And if Joy’s asking to play a board game, you know it has to be good.
