Microsoft brings board games to the 360


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.
