The Land of Carcassonne
The Lees introduced Melissa and I to a game called Carcassonne a few months ago. It's a pretty fun game and you can buy expansion packs for it. The expansions aren't all that expensive and they add some fun new aspects to the game. Well, the other day we got together with the Lees and decided to combine all our expansions for the game. It was a long game. It took us three and a half hours to get through it. Also with that many expansions, strategy pretty much goes out the window. It was fun though. We played with the original game, the towers expansion, the rivers expansion, the inns and cathedrals expansion, the traders and builders expansion, and the princess and the dragon expansion. As you can see the board ended up taking up most of our table. We had so many game pieces that at first we had to put them all into a pillow case and draw pieces from it until we dwindled it down. Then we moved them to the smaller pouch that came with one of the expansions. There are still a couple expansions to buy, so we might be doing this again sometime. By the way Gina creamed us all.
