Good news if you love board games and you own a Nintendo Switch, because French publisher Asmodee has confirmed it's bringing its virtual version of classic medieval-themed board game Carcassonne to Nintendo Switch.

Named after the French town of the same name, the rules of the game are all about strategically placing tiles down and amassing the largest amount of pieces (or followers) on the board before the final tile is placed. Asmodee Digital’s CEO Pierre Ortolan has also gone on record stating that, “Carcassonne is the first Asmodee Digital title of many to follow on Nintendo’s platforms.” So expect plenty more board game shenanigans on the go.

Have you played Carcassonne in real-life? Do you think it'll make a good transition to video game form, and will it suit the console controls of Switch? We want to hear your thoughts...
