Carcassonne is a tile-placement game, in which players draw and places a tile. The tile might be part of a city, a road, a cloister or a field, and must be placed adjacent to tiles that connect appropriately. Players can then place one of their followers, or meeples, on the tile in hopes of scoring. When a a city, road or area is complete, the meeple scores. The game is full of options and possibilities for scoring, and the player who score the most points wins the game.
