Meeples wobble, but they don’t fall down…

A clever tile-laying game. The southern French city of Carcassonne is famous for it’s unique Roman and medieval fortifications. The players develop the area around Carcassonne and deploy their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters and in the fields. The skill of the players to develop the area will determine who is victorious. Carcassonne is considered one of the “gateway” games that opens the world of boardgames to many new players and spawns many sequels and imitators. Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride are frequently cited as the others in the Euro genre.

The big news in 2007 is a drastic change in format from four heats of multi-player Class B MESE to a Single Elimination , two-player Class A event. One might well wonder why mess with a format which has consistently yielded among the largest fields at WBC?

Originally, the plan was to send the final winner to Essen as the USA representative to the Carcassonne World Championship. The Carcassonne World Qualifier at Essen is run as a single elim, two-player game. Although it didn't work out, we are adopting the format to remain in position as an official qualifying site for the World championship. Besides, it's nice to have a major Euro event that can be played to conclusion in one day on the final weekend of WBC and provides competition for weekend visitors.
