In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Carcassonne, Baby

Posted on Wednesday, June 27 @ 21:36:07 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
GR is a pretty fun place to work, what with our collection of severed hands and all. But today I simply can't wait to go home and download Carcassonne which just hit Xbox Live Arcade.

For those of you who haven't played it, Carcassonne is an ingenious board game inspired by the walled medieval city of the same name. Players take turns placing tiles and little men to build roads, monasteries and walled cities of their own.

I play with my friends when I can, but it can be difficult since mostly they have kids. They can't get out much, and apparently nothing says "eat me" to a three year old like a brightly colored tile. So I'm really excited  to be able to play with them over Xbox Live.

Also, I'm hoping it might even improve the experience. Risk was a great board game, but managing all those little pieces and rolling all those dice could get tedious, especially when you wanted to build up a large force. When it came out for the computer, it automated all the less interesting parts, drastically sped up the game and made it more accessible. It was so much fun, my college dorm used to have big Risk tournaments where everyone participated, even the girls.

What the heck, I'm the boss - I'm outta here.
