I'm truly awful at Carcassonne thus far. But it is still a lot of fun. With all of these games I go through a cycle where at first ignorance is bliss and I do halfway decent, then I pick up just enough strategy to royally screw myself up.
My wife has a very short attention span, yet she'll even play these types of games if she is around when we play. It's a shame people won't give them a try.
