The Long View: The Long View: Carcassonne

In this special episode of The Long View, I'm pleased to be joined by returning guestLloyd Keller as we take a long, hard look at the classic game of Carcassonne. Along the way we discuss the strategies and layers of the base game, ideal player count, nearly all of the expansions, and the Carcassonne spin off games of Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers, Carcassonne: The City, Carcassonne: The Discovery, Carcassonne: The Castle, New World: A Carcassonne Game and much, much more. As a bonus I also review the new GMT game of Thunder Alley, and the new Victory Point game, Villainous Vikings. News is also given of a special kickstarter that may be of interest to fans of Dominion. The Thunder Alley review can be found at the 2:25:00 mark of the episode, and the Villainous Vikings review can be found at the 2:51:00 mark of the episode.
