Tile Placement

Tile placement games feature placing tiles to score points. Sometimes the amount of points a players earns is based on adjacent tiles of similar type (Carassonne). Other times the tiles need to be place in a proper manner (Giza), and the player earns more points with the more tiles they place in that order. There are even some tile placement games that require the players to interlock the tiles in a specific way like a puzzle (Galaxy Trucker), and the player loses points for not placing the tiles in the proper way.
