The Ballad of Carcassonne
« on: February 21, 2024, 03:08:28 AM »
I usually work on graphics, but this time I teamed up with a talented musician friend who helped me turn the lyrics into an actual song.
After too much fine-tuning, which resulted in a delayed release date, it is finally complete.
Enjoy :)


Quote
[Verse 1]
Gather round the table if you dare,     
Tiles, followers, score track, beware,
This is Carcassonne, this is a fight,
A medieval world, by strategy's might.

Tile by tile, laying the land,
The cities grow, and the roads expand,
Cloisters rise, in fields so deep,
Beautiful sights, memories to keep.

[Chorus]
Carcassonne, the board unfolds,
Building realms, tales untold,
Strategize each clever turn,
There is always much to learn.

[Verse 2]
Carcassonne Central, where we unite,
All of us far away, yet on the same site,
Merits are given, discussions cascade,
Fan expansions in the workshop are made. 

There is Wikicarpedia, a digital scroll,
Whre Lies the codex, that all things control,
Collected knowledge, so clear and neat,
Encyclopedia which makes rules complete. 

[Chorus]
Carcassonne, the board unfolds,
Building realms, tales untold,
Strategize each clever turn,
There is always much to learn.

+1!

I'm especially thankful for posts like this because they help me convince my family that my Carcassonne obsession could be even more profound and consuming... >:D

The video doesn't give instrumental and vocal credits...are you playing or singing?
