Raise your castle! Raze the enemy! In this clever game of medieval maneuvers, build a castle with walls, towers, and a keep by matching color, shape, or both. Will you use your game tiles to strengthen your fortress or to attack vulnerable opponents? Choose wisely, or you may find yourself in royal ruins! The first player to build a complete castle rules the land.
Transport yourself to a time when protecting your possessions meant defending your keep, the most secure part of the castle. Keeps were often called “great towers” because of their imposing structure – walls over 10 feet thick and 75 feet high. They served various functions, from last resort strongholds during battle to sites of castle dungeons. While there are few remaining keeps still standing today, you can get a small taste of what it was like to build and defend a castle in this game that is simple to learn, yet full of strategy and decision-making elements that will challenge all ages.
CG says: A compact tile laying game that develops, strategic and tactical thinking and pattern matching. The game can easily be played by 6 year olds. The tiles are very thick and sturdy and are illustrated very well. The game can be introduced in two phases; the first being a build your own castle only; and the second adding inthe game aspect of destroying your opponents castle. This will teach kids decision making and dealing with "take that" aspects of gaming.
