Experience a new way to play the bestselling tile-laying game Carcassonne! Thousands of years before the first bricks were laid to build the medieval city of Carcassonne, the area was settled by a prehistoric people who hunted wild animals, gathered berries, and caught fish to ensure their survival. Only cave paintings and archaeological finds hint at the lives of these prosperous hunters and gatherers! In Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers, just as in the original game, players take turns placing tiles and meeples to score points from a growing landscape. But rather than cities, roads, farms, and monasteries, players build forests, rivers, lakes, and meadows, and place hunters, gatherers, and fisher meeples for points. Featuring familiar rules but adding a handful of new bonuses and scoring variations, Hunters & Gatherers has something for both new and veteran Carcassonne players to love.
