Microsoft has announced that this Wednesday's Xbox Live Arcade release will be the classic baord game Carcassonne.
Carcassonne will be available for 800 Microsoft Points and for those that don't know how the game works, we have this explanation:
Named after the medieval fortified town of Carcassonne in southern France, famed for its city walls, Carcassonne for Xbox Live Arcade starts with an empty landscape and a single square tile. Using strategic tactics and a little luck, one to five four players take turns selecting from 72 tiles displaying various features of a city including roads, the walls of a castle or fields. The medieval countryside thrives as players and their opponents place tiles and complete towns, roads, and farms while competing to accumulate the most points.
