The final of the 16th Carcassonne World Championships was held during game fair SPIEL in Essen on Sunday 9th of October 2022 in the "Deutschland" hall of the congress center. 36 players from around the world where there to become new Carcassonne champion 2022. They all had to play under some restritions due to the pandemic (face mask, reduced catering etc.) but had a lot of fun and a very exiting tournament nevertheless.
After five preelimination rounds, a quartely and a semi final Arpad Gere from Romania and Min-Wen Chen from Taiwan faced each other in the final game. Arpad won by 8 points and can therefore call himself the new Carcasonne Champions 2022! Congratulations!!!
