Pros and Cons
Pros2

If you like rolling dice, this is the game for you. The instructions are huge, so i recommend starting basic (with curses if you play games a lot) and working towards playing with various expansions. The curse tiles are as little more difficult, but t...  Read More

The cardboard pieces are a nice thick material with a linen finish. The meeples are big and chunky but i do wish they had a second paint coat. It's kind of pricey, but i'm glad i have it. It is a nifty design.

Cons1

The contents inside seem fine, but the top of the lid was broken in two corners and smashed in another. However, it’s getting a poor rating because of the actual game box.

Pros4

Not only is this game super easy to learn, it's fun and great for the whole family. It’s where you place your tile that brings in all the strategy that experienced gamers will enjoy. The map building is a cool concept.

Carcassonne is a different style of game, but i think of it as catan-lite. I foresee it will stay as a favorite for a while. Game is addicting, it's already my favorite game and we've only played it five times.

It’s easier to play with 2 people, or if we have a friend over and want to play a faster paced game. Especially with fewer people, the play time is very reasonable.

It's personally challenging and surprising, while still being a bit adversarial. Great game of strategy that can be learnt quickly. I often shy away from board games after a long work day because tedious strategy can be laborious.

Cons2

The shrink-wrapped game is in rough shape. The fact that the board is made of roads and cities is irrelevant. The rules are not clear at all how meeples can be played on tiles when you can’t play one on the tile.

The game is incredibly simplistic and boring. It's closer to a puzzle than a game. I probably sound like a grouch who doesn't like games.
