Tile Placement Games

This week we talk about games with a tile placement mechanism. The "daddy" has got to be Carcassonne, but we need to look into this area of gaming more!

Board Game Geek defines Tile Placement as "Tile Placement games feature placing a piece to score VPs, with the amount often based on adjacent pieces or pieces in the same group/cluster, and keying off non-spatial properties like color, "feature completion", cluster size etc.A classic example is Carcassonne, where a player randomly draws a tile and place it next to other tiles and has a chance to place a meeple on the tile just played."
I feel this definition is to confined and feel games like Betrayal at House on the Hill and Room 25 are also tile placement games.. We will see what you think during #BoardGameHour
