Carcassonne is a wonderful board game and the transition it makes to the iOS system (iPhone, iPod, iPad) here is perfect.  The software takes the things that are annoying about playing the game in person (tiles or markers shifting because someone bumped the table, keeping track of the score) and provides extra features that help reward both solo and multiplayer play.  For solo players, there's a new "Game of the Week" feature that you can compete against yourself and others to obtain the best score. In multiplayer, it provides for both push notification play as well as local network.

I haven't gotten the chance to see it in action on the iPad, which might help its only fault, that being the small screen on the iPhone and wanted to get a bigger picture of the tile layout.  It supports pinching, but there's only so much area to fit everything into.

The AI are tough enough to keep you working hard on your strategies.  All in all, well worth the $5 in the iTunes store, especially if you're a fan of the original board game.
