Last week, M. and I finally sat down to play Carcassonne, which we received as a present from her brother... last Christmas. (Along with the 'Inns & Cathedrals' expansion.) And I know it's an award-winning game and all, but yes. It's damn good. We've played it more than a few times already, and even played it with Z. I can readily see it on our 'go to' list for games (along with Pandemic and Ticket to Ride.) Next to figure out is which of the many other expansions we want to pick up.
(Pictured above, our first game, when we were still figuring out how farming worked.)
