EDIT: Latest post about this tool is here
While playing Carcassonne this Christmas, the discussion turned towards optimal playing, and how that would require memorizing the distribution of different tiles in the deck, as well as keeping in mind which tiles have already been played. We thought that making decisions based on knowing what’s left in the deck, instead of guessing, would make for a more interesting game. But, since we didn’t feel like memorizing all the cards, we figured it would be easier to just keep a list of which cards have been played and which ones were still available.
I created a simple web page that can be used as such a list for the base game of Carcassonne: Carcassonne tile counter.
