Carcassonne article in GAMES Magazine (US)
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:43:01 AM »
Hi all-

This is just a heads up that the latest issue (May 2014) of the US publication GAMES Magazine has a feature article on our game, "The Intricacies of Carcassonne: Why It's the Ultimate Board Game". This is a 6-page article by Carlo Sobral. It's a pretty nice article for anyone wanting to know all the basics of Carc (rules, basic strategies, lots of tile images and playing examples, information on some of the expansions), but there's nothing new or earth-shattering for any experts like us. They don't mention the upcoming Schafe und Hugel expansion, but that's understandable as it's only meant to be in introduction to the game. Still, I appreciate any exposure of our game! If you have access to the magazine (I'm not sure of availability in countries other than the US), check it out!

wamboyil,

do you have any link to the homepage?

And I find this interesting:
"lastest issue (May 2014)" - We still have February 2014 here in Germany...

Hi-

I have a subscription, maybe that's why I got my May 2014 copy early. Well, their website is here:

http://www.gamesmagazine-online.com

However, it is not the best website, they don't put very much content there, and it's not updated with the latest issue. Plus, you can't read the main articles at the site.   :(

Sounds like a very complimentary article. I'm looking forward to reading it.
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!
