Garrett and I just got into a new game. We played it with some friends last weekend, and this past weekend some other friends bought it for us as a wedding present! It's called Carcassonne, and like Settlers, it's a winner of the German game award.

It's initially got the basic idea of dominos--you pick up an overturned square and have to fit it adjacent to other tiles already on the boards. Then you add little men to roads, cities, farms, and monestaries to rack up points.
And the board that forms is very cute. The dragon is from an extension we don't have. We have an extension that uses pigs. But we haven't figured out how to play it yet, because of course our directions are in Czech. We're not quite that fluent yet...
