At their LDC press briefing Microsoft announced that three German board games are going to be coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace. Here is a little information about the upcoming releases:
Settlers of Catan
This stunning take on one of the best-known board games around the globe will offer the whole family a chance to establish settlements on the island of Catan.
Designed for two to five players, Carcassonne is set in a medieval landscape made up of 72 tiles. Players start from a single tile and then draw from a pool of remaining tiles to create a growing landscape and gain points for ultimate victory.
Expanded from the popular stock-market-themed game Stimmt So!, Alhambra provides an Arabian theme to the card-based game where players score points by drawing currency cards and building tiles to place next to their Alhambra.
