Carcassonne is a wonderful tile laying game and it's one of our family favorites. It was the winner of the 2001 "Spiel des Jahres" German Game of the Year award.
In Carcassonne, players take turns choosing a tile and adding it to the board. On each turn you may choose to place one of your markers (miniature people - we call them "meeples") on a ladscape element of that tile to claim it as your own. Of course that assumes that you have any meeples left to place. Different landscape elements score differently and they include roads, cities, fields and cloisters. Some of your meeples will be returned to your hand for reuse as cities roads and cloisters are completed and scored. Some will remain on the board for the entire game only to be scored at the very end after the last tile has been played. The trick is to maximize your potential for scoring while not over committing your meeples.
