What's in this Issue?

Issue 47 of Tabletop Gaming Magazine is a true celebration of a classic. Carcassonne turns 20 this month, and we’re dedicating this issue to it with an in-depth interview with the Klaus-Jürgen Wrede about his tile-laying juggernaut. We also review and rate every expansion (that’s actually in print) so you know whether to splash out on the abbot, take a trip to the circus, or whether it should be locked away in the tower. On top of all that, we have a mini strategy guide from Steve Dee, the author of The Book of Carcassonne.

Lost Ruins of Arnak – Sometimes you have to make a culture to lose it. That’s exactly what Mín and Elwen did. We explore the ruins of this upcoming games from Cazech Games Edition.
