This is sort of a weird game to be in a Star Wars theme, but it is pretty funny. It is similar to the original Carcassonne board game, but with some theme and rule adjustments. Instead of routes, castles, and cathedrals, players construct space trade-routes, planets, and asteroid fields! Yea and every player selects one of the famous Star Wars characters to represent – including Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, or just a casual Stromtrooper!
The main difference between a casual Carcassonne and Carcassonne Star Wars is conflict! Yes, another Star Wars-themed game, with another conflict aspect, even in Carcassonne board game! So in this game players are actually capable of placing their meeples onto already claimed planets, which results in combat between two meeples! Roll dice to find out who is the final owner of a planet, and collect as much galactic stuff as you can!
I would not say that this is better than the original Carcassonne, but still, looking from Star Wars theme perspective, the game is changed just enough to become a pretty funny Star Wars game, that is super recommended to Children & easy game fans.
