The game is designed for one to five players who draw from a pool of tiles to create a beautiful ever growing medieval landscape. Players master this world by owning the largest towns, longest roads and biggest farms, not to mention a monastery or two. Carcassonne for the Xbox LIVE« Arcade goes well beyond the board game; animated building of the towns and roads are accompanied by sound effects and fireworks to bring the game alive. There are three challenge modes for solo player games (easy, medium and hard). Also, the automatic scoring allows players to focus entirely on strategy.
