The iPad Was Made For Carcassonne

Finally, a reason to buy an iPad: there's a version of classic (and highly addictive) board game Carcassonne on the way.

The game, ported to the device by TheCodingMonkeys and the suitably Germanic Hans im Glück (publishers of the actual Carcassonne board game), will also be available on the iPhone, but it's the iPad version that'll surely get the most attention, with it's shiny big board and it's hot-seat multiplayer (though the game will also support wi-fi, Bluetooth or online play, and the iPhone version will also have these features).

It'll be released first on iPhone next month, at the special price of $5, and when the iPad version is done shortly afterwards, (which will be "universal" and supersede the original version) it'll be $10.
