Ryan owns a standalone Carcassonne game called Wheel of Fortune. It was also his first time playing. I thought the game was interesting. The wheel allows more options for meeple use. In terms of the game we played, it was a close game throughout. Though I would say I was quite unlucky. Had I been able to draw a cathedral, I think that would have won me the game. In terms of the game ending by a one point difference with Ryan winning, I regretted a particular move I made in the game: I had a "pasture, castle, pasture, road" tile and placed it to complete a castle for 4 points, when I could have placed it to complete a road for 5 points. On the following turn, Ryan completed the road for 5 points.

The reason the point total is given as X and X+1 was because there was a turn during the game that the farmer event on the wheel of fortune applied, and we didn't bother to add the points that cancelled. Then at the end of the game we also didn't bother to add the points that cancelled. So the actual total is unknown. Though I'm guessing we would have been 150+, since our total without was about 130.
