Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers
Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers
Out of stock|
This is a new Klaus-Jurgen Wrede game (not an expansion) in the Carcassonne line. It has new graphics, a new set of components, a theme set in the stone age, and new rules to match the theme. As in Carcassonne, players place tiles and put game figures on them, but with different strategies and results. Players have figures that can represent hunters, gatherers, or fishermen and place them in meadows, forests, or on rivers. They also have huts, which can be placed on rivers or lakes and are scored at the end of the game as are the hunters. Gatherers and fishermen are scored when forests or rivers are completed. There are special forest tiles that give the player who plays a tile completing a forest an extra tile lay of special tiles with special features. Players will like this game that features the tile-laying and token placements of Carcassonne with many new twists. The game is for 3 to 5 players and takes about 60 minutes to play.

Excelent choice for adults Feb 05, 2012
By J. P. Moss
We have been fans of Carcassone for about a year, and have added several extensions to make it a more complex game. Hunters and Gatherers is its own game, but shares the sophisticated "puzzle" aspects of Carcassone. It also uses tiles, and uses them in the same way, but it is its own game, creating its own reality, which leads the players to new strategies, so don't be concerned that Hunters and Gatherers is just a replay of the original Carcassone. Playing with kids is different from playing with adults. The game stretches to meet each groups' needs. Playing with 2 is different from playing with 3. Enjoy!
Our Favorite Game Dec 04, 2011
This game is one of our family's favorite games for young and old alike. It is very simple to play and learn. No two games are alike. Doesn't take hours and hours to play. Doesn't need or have any expansions (not yet). Game materials are good quality and last a long time. We like this better than the regular Carcassonne games because of the bonus nuggets played in this game and the huts variation. Our friends who are not gamers pick this game up quickly and like it. They want to play it again and again. I would highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a great family game.
Great Game Nov 08, 2011

This is a great little board game. We had a fun time playing this and replayed it several times. The rules are easy and it plays in about an hour or so. Its a nice break from Agricola, the strategy is simple. This is now one of my favorite board games.
