Advertised in Gutersloh, Game Brands Examination, Nebel Review for Carcassonne, Hans im Glück Verlag
Hartmut Brand, October 29, 2022
Nowadays, there are hardly any real classic board games. One of them is definitely Carcassonne from Hans im Glück, who is now over 20 years old #publisher.
After such a long time, the publisher gave the game a new component. Because in “Nebel uber Carcassonne” 1 to 5 players aged 8 years and over play about # game time About 35 minutes now co-op.
However, this is a standalone game that, in addition to searching for points, also relates to the fact that the world of Carcassonne is besieged by ghosts and mysterious fogs flutter over the land.
Fans of the original can rest easy, because of course it is still about building a network of paths by laying tiles, creating cities and much more. And as always, the bigger and more comprehensive we build, the more points we get.
But where is the collaborative idea of this game? The task facing us as a group is twofold. On the one hand, we have to reach a certain number of points, but on the other hand, we also have to take care of ghost hunting. So sometimes we face a decision whether we’d rather give up points and hunt down some ghosts instead.
Completing Clouds of Fog will completely remove ghosts from the game. And if we reach the target number of points without the ghosts having the upper hand, we win the match.
You should not let yourself be fooled by the beautifully designed game materials, because combating the supremacy of ghosts can sometimes be very difficult. But that’s the advantage of co-op games, win together or lose together and that doesn’t make it half as bad if you lose.
What I particularly liked here is the kind of tutorial that introduces you to the game. So you don’t have to be a big Carcassonne manager to quickly get into the game with “Fog over Carcassonne”. Everything is built into a level system and with each level the scope of the game increases and with it the degree of difficulty.
But it can also be explained #Game also from #children Can play from 8 years old. Due to the wide range of difficulty levels, “Fog over Carcassonne” is also a thing for experienced playgroups. A playing time of just over 30 minutes means that this game appears time and time again on our table.
Because in times of increasingly complex board games, it’s a good idea to play a game that’s quick to set up, quick to explain, quick to play, and quick to unlock.
Thus, “Nebel über Carcassonne” finds its audience among seasoned Carcassonne players and players who have not yet come to grips with the main game.
