Carcassonne: How it SHOULD be played
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:02:50 AM »
IMPORTANT!

We've all been getting the rules VERY wrong for the better part of two decades!

Moritz Brunnhofer just explained this video during the Coffee and Cake event.

He thought it was a most enjoyable video!

Ha ha ha - I love that it's gone to the top of HiG already! :))

Z-Man Games linked to it on Facebook, and their comment was something along the lines of "looks like we got the rules wrong..." so I was immediately interested. However, I got distracted by one of the comments underneath it which I took offence to and didn't actually watch the video until some time later.

Looks like a fun alternative anyway, and the fact that you only use two thirds of the tiles will help prevent tile counting (not that this will make any difference anyway).

I especially like when the carcasses get sucked into the nightmarish grey hellscape! and the water slide. My river will now be referred to as a water slide. :))
