This is a stand-alone game based upon the classic Carcassonne tile game. It takes place in the prehistoric Carcassonne landscape. Where the famous castle walls of Carcassonne will stand in the future, mammoths roam and saber-tooth tiger’s hunt.
You will find it's game mechanics simple to master but also offering rich gameplay. There are numerous ways to win, and Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers will appeal to beginners and veteran gamers alike
Your prehistoric tribes will roam the land in search of resources to guarantee their survival. Instead of building a medieval landscape with cities, roads, fields, and monasteries (like in the original Carcassonne), you’ll place tiles filled with natural features like forests, rivers, lakes, and grasslands, claiming and completing them to score points.
Hunters & Gatherers combines the classic tile-laying gameplay of the original Carcassonne with new thematic features and adjusted scoring rules for an all-new challenge. Expand the wilderness as you play, then score points for features you've claimed. Use the special menhir tiles to your advantage to get ahead of your opponents
The Game offers lots for players of the original Carcassonne to enjoy as well as new players. Just watch out for the saber-tooth tigers!

This Carcassonne prequel is a beautifully presented and simple game that poses sufficiently different scoring questions and strategies to the original. Enjoyable family game for up to 5 players.
