There's a variant of Carcassonne I like even better, named The Ark of the Covenant.

I like the temples of Ark more than the cloisters of Carcassonne, counting sheep and wolves more than counting towns, and I like that moving the ark gives you something to do when you can't (or don't want to) place a meeple.
