While we have all the multiplayer bases covered, sometimes there’s still need for computer players, of course: We are happy to launch the game with 8 different artificial inteligence players, each once different in behavior and play-style.
To fit into the medieval world of Carcassonne we picked these eight characters:
The Count and The Countess
The lords of these parts. The Count and Countess are a pair of smart, versatile players who are well-rounded overall. Although if you ask the Countess the Count is a little too well-rounded, owing to a few too many late-night banquets.
Maid and Servant
The salt of the earth, the hard-working Maid and Servant are what keeps the kingdom running smoothly. They both play basic, sensible, if a little unimaginative styles.
Juggler and Fortune Teller
The traveling folk. Wherever there’s a circus, you can find these two. Their style is weird but effective, just keep an eye on your valuables if you want to play with them.
Witch and Warlock
The dark and reclusive practitioners of the arcane arts. These two mysterious characters are viewed with respect and fear throughout the kingdom. Challenge them at your own peril.
Personally I think Toby did a great job giving each one of these a distinct personality. I hope you will have heaps of fun competing with his creations.
